An article entitled <a href="http://www.nytimes.com/1989/11/11/opinion/the-end-of-the-war-to-end-wars.html" target="_blank">&ldquo;The End of the War to End Wars&rdquo;</a> reads: &ldquo;Crowds of young Germans danced on top of the hated Berlin wall Thursday night. They danced for joy, they danced for history. They danced because the tragic cycle of catastrophes that first convulsed Europe 75 years ago, embracing two world wars, a Holocaust and a cold war, seems at long last to be nearing an end.&rdquo;&nbsp;</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/108577997/showcase-stadthaus-m1-by-barkow-leibinger Showcase: Stadthaus M1 by Barkow Leibinger Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2014-09-11T11:17:00-04:00 >2014-09-16T22:57:07-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/ek/ekz61auapfosxzqw.jpg" width="514" height="386" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>The subtle strength of <a href="http://archinect.com/firms/cover/704/barkow-leibinger-architects" target="_blank">Barkow Leibinger</a>'s&nbsp;<strong>Stadthaus M1</strong> derives from its passive house standards and connection to local environment. The basic polygonal form of the overall structure, which includes a hotel and street-level shops separate from apartments, is jointed by a &ldquo;pocket park&rdquo; that serves as a serene connector between the complex&rsquo;s private-public areas as well as a transition space to nearby streets. Located in the &ldquo;sustainable model district&rdquo; of Vauban in the already so-called &ldquo;green city&rdquo; of Freiburg, Germany, Stadthaus M1 is right at home aesthetically and ideologically.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/105482832/show-case-schapenboeten-holiday-home-by-benthem-crouwel-architects Show Case: ‘Schapenboeten’ Holiday Home by Benthem Crouwel Architects Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2014-07-31T19:03:00-04:00 >2014-08-04T18:56:19-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/iz/izksux4vbx4tsku0.jpg" width="514" height="343" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Slightly quirky, modest and covered in fishnets, <a href="http://archinect.com/firms/cover/64208796/benthem-crouwel-architects" target="_blank">Benthem Crouwel Architect</a>&rsquo;s holiday house turns a piece of Dutch vernacular into a sleek but cozy nest.

Built by a strain of rogue bohemian architects, the houses served as beloved, experimental cottages until the land underneath them was seized by the federal government. Many of the houses were abandoned and left to slowly rot in the landscape, whether or not they were protected by historical status.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/100175622/a-new-nature-interview-with-ma-yansong-of-mad-architecture A new nature: Interview with Ma Yansong of MAD Architecture Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2014-05-22T13:05:00-04:00 >2014-06-05T13:46:11-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/dp/dp9t9yh89308vmts.jpg" width="514" height="386" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Ma Yansong is a trailblazing figure for Chinese architecture, having made a name for himself around the world as a business leader and innovative architect.

California&rsquo;s famous Pacific Coast Highway winds down the state, with alternating western views of ocean and forest, with little else visible from the narrow road. But draped over a precarious hillside on Big Sur&rsquo;s south coast, Fougeron Architects&rsquo; Fall House is a frontier-cabin like no other, on the very edge of the country overlooking the Pacific.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/96413581/showcase-residence-in-weinheim-by-wannenmacher-m-ller-architekten ShowCase: Residence in Weinheim by Wannenmacher-Möller Architekten Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2014-03-25T19:05:00-04:00 >2014-04-09T21:33:33-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/04/04qb37s4kumj1qih.jpg" width="514" height="343" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>While designed as a private residence, the shape of Wannenmacher-M&ouml;ller's Weinheim Residence has inklings of cultural and industrial institutions. The home's stretched linearity is a sleek version of the stacked shipping container aesthetic, made of aluminum and glass on the ground floor, and light-colored stone on the upper. Inside, surfaces are similarly light and clean, resembling a bright and airy white-cube gallery. Built for a family of five, the house morphs neatly from two stories into three, as the steep plot slopes downwards from the street-facing front into the back garden.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/96178231/showcase-white-wolf-hotel-by-and-r ShowCase: White Wolf Hotel by AND-RÉ Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2014-03-22T15:37:00-04:00 >2014-03-24T21:19:25-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/xq/xq0xakpvmogti8w3.jpg" width="514" height="339" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>The White Wolf Hotel sits low to the ground in the verdant landscape of Penafiel, Portugal, calmly set by forest and stream.&nbsp;AND-R&Eacute;'s neutral white hotel is no-frills in and out, its simple geometry free of distracting stimuli for visitors to enjoy a complete mental and physical respite. The hotel shares its namesake with a local wolf species, and while it bares little biomimetic relation, appears similarly at home in the landscape.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/94820100/showcase-casa-h-by-bojaus-arquitectura ShowCase: Casa H by Bojaus Arquitectura Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2014-03-05T14:51:00-05:00 >2014-03-10T19:50:14-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/1a/1az6j99bn6ifrya5.jpg" width="514" height="770" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p><a href="http://www.bojaus.com/" target="_blank">Bojaus Arquitectura</a>&rsquo;s Casa H is a modernist white cube, but it&rsquo;s also not what you think it is.

Is it necessarily a disadvantage that the city serves as an incubator, rather than a fairground, for architectural innovation -- or as Thom Mayne put it, as a world-class global exporter of urban and architectural ideas?

How can art be inextricably linked to the landscape to enhance the experience of the physical place? In an environment over-saturated with stimuli, what are the fundamental kinds of human experience that are lacking? And how can the act of producing public art at this scale be a meaningful experience for everyone who contributes?
