    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.

    -- George Gordon, Lord Byron

  • Interactive landscapes - Blog about architecture, technology, design and art
    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.

    Currently I'm an intern at social design lab Studio Roosegaarde and I would like to blog about my activities here, the people I meet and art and architecture I like.

    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.

  • Columbia University, GSAPP 2014-2016 - what am I getting myself into?
    By Martina Dolejsova: A blog that records my two years in the Critical, Curatorial, and Conceptual Practices of Architecture Program at the GSAPP. Posts will explore the program, New York's architecture and urban design and has the potential to envelope the west coast as well. Having spent the last 6 years in L.A., my intended thesis will look at the the west coast (and hopefully the school will give me the objective distance I need!).

  • 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.
