  • 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.

    There is a pleasure in the pathless woods, there is a rapture on the lonely shore, there is society, where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar: I love not man the less, but Nature more.

    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.

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

  • 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.

  • "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.

  • NYC Architecture in Decay - Progressive Architectural Decay
    By jfbautista: Since the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, 2010s and beyond, urban decay has been associated with Western cities, especially in North America, South America and some parts of Europe. Since then, major structural changes in global economies, transportation, and government policies created the economic and then the social conditions resulting in Progressive Urban Decay.

    Here I'll highlight the Architectural Decay of New York City the way I see it.
