  • Density - Finding solution for a massive problem.
    By Ricardo Amaya: Rapid world growth and urbanization is not allowing cities to adapt and provide for their inhabitants. Towns are quickly growing into cities, and some of the densest places in the world are comprised of makeshift homes, otherwise referred to as slums. Furthermore, already overcrowded cities have to absorb people leaving their rural hometown in hope of job opportunities. There are currently over 1 billion slum dwellers in the world. This number is expected to reach 2 billion by the year 2030.

  • Interactive landscapes - Blog about architecture, technology, design and art
    By studio roosegaarde: I'm an Arts and Media management student who prefers big, illuminate and slightly bizarre art & architecture. I believe in art and social media as an original way of communicating.

    Currently I'm an intern at social design lab Studio Roosegaarde and I would like to blog about my activities here, the people I meet and art and architecture I like.

    For architects it could be interesting to see everything of an young, innovative, arty perspective.

  • Architectural Ellipsis - ... Intern Architect ...
    By Everyday Intern: An ellipsis [...] is used to signal an omission, an unfinished thought, aposiopesis, or brief awkward silence. Architectural ellipses are those aspects of the profession we (perhaps intentionally) omit, gloss over, or let dwindle in silence.

    Generally applied this blog should encompass many aspects of the profession. Yet, as an intern architect I'll focus primarily on the architectural ellipses that occur in the internship process.

  • DE_CON - ANA_ARCHITECTURE
    By Rob Mothershed: We want to examine,discuss, and research new paradigms, new spaces, new structures, and new modes of construction. We are looking to 1988-1998 to see how the digital and pre digital has played out. We are tired of seeing the architect- provide a service and we are eager to see the Architect as Master Builder.

    By jp88: This blog gives a sneak peak into the architecture world at the University of Miami. What began as an experiment following one group of incoming graduate students through their first semester of design, has morphed into a window of the school of architecture through this professor's eyes. I will try to post as often as possible.

  • The Dirty South - New Orleans - Masters Studio with Jennifer Bonner
    By Stefann Plishka: The second installation of The Dirty South studio with Jennifer Bonner at Georgia Tech takes on New Orleans. Using the legacy of Dirty South hip hop as inspiration within the framework of a guidebook of B-side tours, students investigated unusual patterns and idiosyncrasies in the city. Projects spanned topics from misuse of Charles Moore's Piazza d'Italia to reappropriation of the city's most controversial monuments to installation of an illegal auction house within the convention center.

  • "Suspects" in the Studio - Increasing Diversity in Design Education
    By Derek Ham: The recent cases involving Mike Brown in Ferguson and Garner in New York all continue to illuminate how many people view Blacks (and especially Black men) in America. Architecture schools cannot avoid this discussion as many schools still have staggering low numbers of Black and other underrepresented minority students in their programs. I want to help us talk about these issues as we continue to try making our learning environments (the design studio) welcoming for people of all walks of life.

  • on behalf of Olaf Design Ninja - interviews with random thoughts and assemblies of experiences
    By Olaf Design Ninja_: The following blogs are Interviews performed in the year of 2013 with a man full of random thoughts and legendary type of architectural experiences. Olaf is his real first name. I (Chris Teeter) knew his son Tom from my studies at University of Kansas and randomly ran into Tom in 2012 in NYC. We reminisced about all the great stories Tom had told me about his immigrant architect father. Given my boredom with the profession I requested an interview with this now insane man. Archifiction.

  • Light - As we See it! - Lighting Design Basics
    By Pon Kumaresh: This blog would attempt to cover basic design factors typically considered in lighting design.

    In 1998, i was asked about the material of the filament inside the incandescent bulb, for which i did not have a clue, at that time. I am an engineer and i have the aptitude to learn the subject is what i told the interviewer and surprisingly, got into the lighting industry!

    Perhaps it is that shameful ignorance that gave me a voracious appetite to proactively seek, learn and understand lighting.
