Certainly this demand is older than a year -- as we allow technology to knit information more thickly into our cultural fabric, we question the nature of education at large as having a physical place and hierarchy, through systems such as MOOCs or mobile workspaces. Add prohibitively high costs, followed by debt and depressing unemployment rates, and the architect is getting fit to reconstitute itself as newly relevant and multi-faceted professional.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/81536319/no-such-thing-as-nowhere-discussion-with-matthew-coolidge-author-of-around-the-bay No Such Thing As Nowhere: Discussion with Matthew Coolidge, author of "Around the Bay" Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2013-09-23T07:50:00-04:00 >2014-02-28T12:47:07-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/v9/v915r99rh85j8fus.jpg" width="514" height="339" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> <em>Around the Bay: Man-Made Sites of Interest in the San Francisco Bay Region</em>, a&nbsp;new photobook from the <a href="http://clui.org" target="_blank">Center for Land Use Interpretation</a>, catalogues portraits of the Bay Area's complex and historied landscapes.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/81071956/aftershock-1-architectural-consumers-in-the-experience-economy AfterShock #1: Architectural Consumers in the Experience Economy Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2013-09-11T11:53:00-04:00 >2013-09-17T22:43:37-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/2c/2cqg5h18b0vt8yq7.jpg" width="514" height="303" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> <strong>AfterShock</strong> is a non-conclusive series on Archinect that grapples with the impact and responsibility of contemporary architectural design, hoping to instigate dialogues on how to make architecture more accountable.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/81465615/a-review-of-joe-day-s-corrections-and-collections-architectures-for-art-and-crime-2013-routledge A review of Joe Day's "Corrections and Collections: Architectures for Art and Crime" (2013, Routledge) John Southern 2013-09-10T11:25:00-04:00 >2013-09-16T15:25:46-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/mz/mzg9huocwc6ta43b.jpg" width="514" height="386" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> <em>&ldquo;Since 2000, institutions of display and discipline have taken on transnational dimensions, many of them unanticipated and controversial.&nbsp; In the most literal of convergences, yesteryear&rsquo;s prisons have simply been reopened as today&rsquo;s museums.&rdquo;</em></p> http://archinect.com/features/article/79369519/next-series-and-the-list-goes-on NEXT SERIES: And The List Goes On Orhan Ayyüce 2013-08-13T17:12:00-04:00 >2013-09-12T16:10:07-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/kc/kcc1q4bfxvvwxp4w.jpg" width="514" height="303" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> Speed of architectural style trends finally caught up with speed of fashion about 1 to 1. It took long years during modernism that a particular form would find its place in present design mainstream because it was pretty well established by the Bauhaus and other white wall-ers and the elite still was The Elite.</p> <p> That has changed during the postmodern years but still it took five years or so for formal trends to take shape.</p> <p> With the advancement of the digital technology, time span of formal gestures in building designs have just about caught up with fashion industry&rsquo;s seasonality, authors' whim and students' desire to participate in the advancement of architectural relevancy. Perhaps you can blame the rise of the narrative for this but the stories only amount to cheap slogans in most cases.</p> <p> So much for architecture's empirical operatives.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/79290654/what-s-next-a-panel-discussion-for-a-d-museum-s-never-built-los-angeles What's Next?: A Panel Discussion for A+D Museum's "Never Built: Los Angeles" Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2013-08-12T20:19:00-04:00 >2013-08-22T12:24:05-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/vi/viutnqh0sp2ivfnd.jpg" width="514" height="771" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> Does L.A. even want to be defined by a provincial architecture? 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/78446579/the-science-fiction-of-never-built-los-angeles The Science Fiction of "Never Built: Los Angeles" Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2013-08-01T17:16:00-04:00 >2013-08-08T12:58:43-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/6c/6cuodwmouqmwywbo.jpg" width="514" height="242" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> What can we learn from the aborted potential icons of Los Angeles? Whether underfunded, over-dramatic or anachronistic, the structures on display in "<em>Never Built: Los Angeles</em>" at the Architecture and Design Museum in L.A., never saw the light of day. But because they were the twinkle in the eye of a few established names in post-war American architecture, such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Richard Neutra and John Lautner, these imaginings are vetted with their creators' robust reputations for modern, revolutionary forms. Seen with a 21st century perspective, jaded by the likes of Frank Gehry or Bjarke Ingels, it's actually pretty easy to imagine these never-built structures existing -- at least in terms of form, anyway.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/77746690/op-ed-thoughts-on-naivete-as-design-method-or-why-our-entry-didn-t-have-a-6-curb Op-Ed: Thoughts on Naivete as Design Method or, Why Our Entry Didn’t Have a 6” Curb Ann Lui 2013-07-24T12:35:00-04:00 >2013-07-29T21:17:01-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/8p/8p2mac7ni6gpnzmb.jpg" width="514" height="303" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> When asked about courage in architecture, Elizabeth Diller has <a href="http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887323936404578581921126746506.html" target="_blank">said</a>: "[It] comes half from being naive and also not having the cynicism to stop yourself when you have a good idea that you don't know how to work it out.&rdquo; More simply: You can&rsquo;t know that it can&rsquo;t be done if you&rsquo;re going to do it.

Rather than being sited in an expanded traffic lane, our entry swooped high and far above the city. It created a counterpoint to the constant discourse on hyper-efficiency and speed. It provoked, I hope, questions about the nature of the competition as well as addressing the brief.
