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? It may be that the very landscape of inspiration is an obstruction to execution.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/74780159/student-works-ai-aa-athens-aa-istanbul-visiting-schools-2013 Student Works: AI | AA Athens & AA Istanbul Visiting Schools 2013 Elif Erdine 2013-06-17T12:15:00-04:00 >2013-06-21T13:54:14-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/fj/fjxsbj3zubn70r9c.jpg" width="514" height="386" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> <em>by Elif Erdine (AA Istanbul Visiting School Program Director) and Alexandros Kallegias (AA Athens Visiting School Program Director)</em></p> <p> <em>AA Athens | Istanbul Visiting School (AI) </em>defines architecture as "an art of suppositioning ideas, architectural principles which are being performed repeatedly". Its foundations lie on combining theory and practice and shared knowledge, with the goal to go beyond individuality and address today&rsquo;s challenges via dialogue.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/75126636/student-works-singapore-university-of-technology-and-design-library-pavilion Student Works: Singapore University of Technology and Design Library Pavilion Archinect 2013-06-13T20:30:00-04:00 >2013-06-17T02:19:12-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/wt/wtpumv380m2pssap.jpg" width="514" height="342" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> The Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) library pavilion is located on a sloping lawn on the temporary Dover Campus.</p> <p> Accommodating three mature trees and forming a noise barrier toward the Ayer Raja Expressway in the north, the gridshell structure of the pavilion harnesses the site constraints and activates an outdoor space behind the existing library building.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/65758020/student-works-beyond-prototype Student Works: Beyond Prototype Jason Ivaliotis 2013-03-21T13:27:00-04:00 >2013-08-26T18:04:46-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/ir/ir0jhr1zqc4itl24.jpg" width="514" height="386" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> <em>Beyond Prototype</em> is an advanced digital fabrication seminar developed at <a href="http://www.arch.columbia.edu/" target="_blank">Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture Planning and Preservation</a> by Jason Ivaliotis and Nicholas Kothari. This course focuses on the development of hybridized, folded meshes that simultaneously serve as both structure and building envelope. Students develop parametrically controlled tessellations and transform them into building component systems that can be built using conventional sheet stock materials. These tessellated systems are extracted from the digital realm and built at full scale.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/66641892/student-works-new-horizons-iceland-expedition Student Works: New Horizons Iceland Expedition Archinect 2013-02-04T14:01:00-05:00 >2013-03-10T13:40:33-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/yg/ygahbbzmq8g0urdv.jpg" width="514" height="303" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> In late November 2012, London's <a href="http://www.bartlett.ucl.ac.uk/architecture" target="_blank">The Bartlett School of Architecture</a> Unit 3 embarked on an expedition to Iceland.</p> <p> Warmed by the Gulf Stream, endless geysers and caught between two major tectonic plates, this land of endless volcanic activity is also home to Europe's largest glacier.</p> <p> Twelve 2nd and 3rd year students designed, built and tested a series of shelter/surveying devices to research and charted varied aspects of Iceland.</p>
