  • Radio Architect
    By Farzam Kharvari: As the world is developing its way of communication, we, the architects need to be more curious on stuff around us!
    Rise of different philosophies around the globe, rapid growth in our awareness, transformation of communication types and many more items around are leading the ARCHITECTURE to an absolute new brand of its roots!
    It is time to ask: are we, the TRANSFORMERS or are we the results of TRANSFORMATIONS of GENIUS LOCUS (the protective spirit of a place)?

  • 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.

  • DISRUPT/VE - AN AD-HOC APPROACH TO DIGITAL COMPUTATION
    By Austin Samson: Using an Ad-Hoc approach to digital computation, new coherency between architectural elements can be discovered. History has shown that certain techniques or processes are capable of solving problems that they were not originally intended to solve. Nicholas De Monchaux has outlined many of these scenarios in his novel "Space Suit". By researching processes of making that are external to typical architecture, designers can generate relationships between existing an new formal qualities.

  • 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?

  • 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.
