But a class of <a href="http://archinect.com/sciarc" target="_blank">SCI-Arc</a> students led by faculty member Darin Johnstone got to design and build a new home&mdash;and an affordable, eco-friendly one, at that.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/149938601/architectural-panel-tape-proves-its-strength-with-spf-architects-double-stick-project Architectural panel tape proves its strength with SPF:architects' Double Stick project Alexis Petrunia 2016-04-09T10:49:00-04:00 >2016-04-18T00:04:01-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/tg/tge31qrgfxs1lgrm.jpg" width="514" height="315" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>The &ldquo;Double Stick&rdquo; residence comes by its name honestly.

An imaginary world can be transformed from the most modest of settings. Really, all that&rsquo;s needed is a bit of space (albeit safe and relatively clean), and a great imagination &ndash;something that little ones have an endless supply of.</p><p>So when it comes time for kids to embark on the short-lived, yet impactful journey that is kindergarten, the most nurturing of environments are those that foster diversity, social connectivity, and creativity. The Danish architecture firm <a href="http://archinect.com/firms/cover/46834/cobe" target="_blank">COBE</a> has used that ethos to cultivate an amazing setting for children attending preschool in the Copenhagen neighborhood of Frederiksberg. The educational institution encompasses a unique campus, a blank canvas of sorts for young minds to re-imagine a world of their own.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/146210511/modular-benches-provide-maximum-functionality-and-versatility-for-lake-jasper-house Modular benches provide maximum functionality and versatility for Lake Jasper House Alexis Petrunia 2016-02-02T13:41:00-05:00 >2016-02-19T14:07:58-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/p3/p3149abcvtu9wy0a.jpg" width="514" height="271" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>The Lake Jasper House, designed by <a href="http://www.architecturama.ca/" target="_blank">Architecturama</a>, stands in the midst of a forested haven in Chertsey, Canada.

Alongside its namesake animal population, the park is also home to the horses that transport human visitors along its picturesque pathways. Those equine inhabitants are housed within stables that recently underwent an extensive, site-sensitive and rather handsome renovation by the firm <a href="http://archinect.com/bertelsenscheving" target="_blank">Bertelsen &amp; Scheving</a>.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/117673239/showcase-a-house-by-wiel-arets-architects Showcase: A’ House by Wiel Arets Architects Alexander Walter 2015-01-05T22:58:00-05:00 >2015-04-20T02:07:19-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/nt/ntm5o40221x17n08.jpg" width="514" height="771" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Wedged between the narrow alleys and razor-sharp property lines of Tokyo's Nishi-Azabu neighborhood, A' House fits in its dense context like a shiny puzzle piece.
