  • 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.

    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.
  • 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.

  • First Architecture Job - Strategies for fresh graduates to get their first architecture job
    By Firstarchitecturejob: I write posts to help fresh architectural graduates secure jobs in architecture firms. Most graduates struggle because there is no manual on what to do after graduation and it can be an overwhelming experience. I write about how to prepare resumes & portfolios, networking, application strategies, firm selection, job interviews, softwares etc. Note: some articles are re-posted (with permission) from and I credit them at the bottom of those posts.

  • You Are Not Your User - // In pursuit of models for social impact design & community engagement in practice //
    By Matt Kleinmann: The practice of Architecture, both the ideals it cherishes & the business model it has gradually adopted, is evolving. Globally, more people live in cities than do not. The 'Future Cities', those bucolic heterotopias we were promised, are not here. Instead, we are growing into a world where shelter, environmental justice, clean drinking water, & other basic human rights are negotiated for. How do we, as architects, plan to address those needs? This blog will explore answers to those questions.
