  • the DESIGN MOTIV[AT]E project [...] - A blog of random ellipsis...
    By Brandon Featherstone: The idea of the use of ellipsis emerges from the corresponding use in language, defined as [...] "the act of leaving out one or more words that are not necessary for a phrase to be understood," leaving the potential for an open-ended continuation or discussion of any said topic...The use of the ellipsis can be used at the begging of a phrase, whether it be for a sudden leap from one topic to another, or picking up where the last one left off...this is the idea of the Design Motiv[at]e Project.

  • Professional Δ Academia - Exploring the interstitial space between the professional and academic realms
    By Commix: There is a definite divide between the professional and academic realms of architecture. This blog is an exploration in how each paradigm could be used to inform the other. The commentary is based on my own experience at small firms and the dialog I've had with students, firm principles, contractors, fabricators, and faculty in a major metro area on the East Coast of the United States.

  • 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.

  • The Soft City - Architecture's Public?
    By Matthew Rust: The purpose of The Soft City is to question the motives and ideology behind our urban spaces. As urban users, we are active elements within a city. We have the ability to shape the city surrounding us. Consequently the environment around us offers resistance to our interactions and reshapes us in turn. This continuous moulding and reshaping of people and space is directly reflected in our societies.

    This relationship will help form the key theme for the blog; who is architecture's public?

    By Namir El Andary: Massive populations, global warming, rising sea levels, congestion and destruction of coasts... All these reasons are leading us into discovering the oceans.
    New Ecopolis X is the journey to the land of future cities as it projects the idea of the floating cities into the current end of the 21th century.
    This utopia will surely be one day a reality.

  • The Crisis of Aesthetic - Behind the Scenes: The Making of my Master's Thesis
    By jsraffin: I am a few months into the beginning of my thesis year at the University of Detroit Mercy. The thesis is an investigation in how dominant culture and technology shape the new paradigm. The blog is a good way of documenting and organizing my thoughts throughout the process as well as sharing my ideas with the Archinect community. It would also be a cool look into the mind of a student working though a thesis. I intend to post images I've been working on and thoughts about them.

  • Insane Cities - Misunderstanding everything about this place...
    By Aditya Ghosh: 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.
