  • Elemental Urbanism
    By James Pereira: I often wonder if all cities should be shaped like Rome; a city that is enourmous yet walkable with all paths leading to monumental icons. Many major cities now look as merely a cemetery of parts; buildings, gridded streets, and parks creating a cityscape of cluster. Even an individual apartment building can be looked at similarly to a microscopic level. This is due to evolution, program, and constraints which alltogether create elements that limit possibility.

  • Design Haus
    By Designhaus Architecture: This blog would pertain to more of what architecture and design is and how it's slowly changing. There are also professional ways on what design is, and how to achieve and accomplish these things such as how one can make their building more attractive. I'll share my content about how architecture has taken a step into the abstract, as more architects try to steer away from the normal to step outside the box.

  • 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. Olaf is his real first name. I 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.

  • Insane Cities - Misunderstanding everything about this place...
    By adityaghosh13: There is a firm discourse, opinion and even a strange complacence about our knowledge of the city, people, space and time. Labels abound; traditionalist, modernist, building, design, blog.
    What if critique or opinions are pointless because of a clear disdain for objectivity. How would I describe the world around me if I countered every POV with a logical argument?
    The blog will be a glimpse into everyday practices, with a strong bias towards un-designing urban-scape.

  • 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. For too long, the profession have had to put up with second rate software, designed for generic "professional services" firms. 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?
