  • PLAY-TIME - Architectonic Image Worldwide
    By Play-Time Webmaster: PLAY-TIME consists entirely of architects with an extended career in the fields of photography, graphic design and audiovisual.

    The image that communicates is the one that persists on memory.

    Light, shadow, texture and color are the tools PLAY-TIME combines to communicate through and image the values of architecture.

    We avoid the realistic image to approach to photography with intention.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Project Costing Systems - Which ones are used and why?
    By Joe Emanuele: This blog is to engage with the profession as to which systems staff actually use, what are the challenges and what should we want from a system.

The result is often that these systems are not used for the critical task of running projects financially.
    What do we want systems to do?, do we want to resource weekly or monthly - or at all?
