Today, you&rsquo;re more likely to buy a chair that&rsquo;s made of Brazilian wood, designed by a Swede, and manufactured in China than one with even a single locally-produced nail. Enter <a href="https://www.opendesk.cc" target="_blank">Opendesk</a>, a furniture company with a global network and local manufacturing model, which might just spark a new revolution in the industry.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/55830183/student-works-insitu-medellin Student Works: INSITU Medellin Nicholas Waissbluth 2012-08-27T10:00:00-04:00 >2012-09-03T22:28:11-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/de/de8ifxug9ha8lp1d.jpg" width="514" height="343" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> INSITU is an initiative founded by Blokcad Lab and uAbureau in 2011 to implement projects that investigate the informal development of cities, its non-consolidated urban spaces and auto- construction processes. Its central objective is to explore how the ecological and the social environments of the city can be merged to create new and unforeseen landscapes. Through a series of ongoing workshops, lectures and events, the program is directed to students, professionals and communities working in art, architecture, design and its related fields.</p>
