  • Light - As we See it! - #HealthyLightingDesigns
    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.

  • 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 years of 13/14 with a man full of random thoughts and legendary type of architectural experiences.

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.

  • BG Group Place: An architectural dynamo - by Christian Garcia
    By cgarcia47: This semester I worked on an article on BG Group Place, designed by Pickard Chilton, and the effects it had on downtown Houston, Texas.This skyscraper was designed and built in the middle of the 2008 recession. The LEED Platinum certified building replaced a much blighted block on Main Street filled with drugs and prostitution. With the completion of the project, the developer Hines proved Houston could overcome the recession, and the 800 block of Main Street could once again prosper.

  • 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.
