[...] In this spirit of reuse and reclamation, Lundberg saw the cabins as a novel way of breaking up the wide open spaces of a gutted floor in the old furniture mart that will become a casual dining area.</p></em><br /><br /><p>Taking architectural anachronism to a whole new level, Twitter turns the open-plan office on its head by installing original one-room wood cabins from Montana as lunching spaces. Designers for Twitter's offices feel the choice is coherent with the company values of reuse and reclamation, while also strengthening the brand's bird imagery as related to the forest/nature.</p><p>What's left behind is the sour sense of irony coating such a move. In a city fuming with affordable housing and gentrification disputes, it's a bit hilarious for Twitter to insert original homesteading-iconography into its own HQ.</p> http://archinect.com/news/article/90913357/ten-top-images-on-archinect-s-wood-pinterest-board Ten Top Images on Archinect's "Wood" Pinterest Board Archinect 2014-01-10T14:38:00-05:00 >2014-01-10T18:20:16-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/qa/qajwow8eejj57ze5.jpg" width="514" height="687" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> In case you haven't checked out <a href="http://pinterest.com/archinect/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Archinect's Pinterest</a> boards in a while, we have compiled ten recently pinned images from outstanding projects on various Archinect <a href="http://archinect.com/firms" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Firm</a> and <a href="http://archinect.com/people" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">People </a>profiles.</p> <p> (<strong>Tip:</strong> use the handy <a href="http://archinect.com/news/article/69075090/7-reasons-why-you-need-to-be-using-archinect-s-follow-feature" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">FOLLOW feature</a> to easily keep up-to-date with all your favorite Archinect profiles!)</p> <p> Today's top images (in no particular order) are from the board <a href="http://pinterest.com/archinect/wood/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><em>Wood</em></a>.</p> <p> <img alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/jl/jlovew57myc97juh.jpg" title=""></p> <p> &uarr; <a href="http://archinect.com/winstonwin/project/lodgepole-pine-house" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Lodgepole Pine House</a> in Soda Springs, CA by Anne Phillips Architecture (team member: <a href="http://archinect.com/winstonwin" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Winston Win</a>)</p> <p> <img alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/lv/lv6vjcx8ad1ij8gt.jpg" title=""></p> <p> &uarr; <a href="http://archinect.com/firms/project/676/kaap-skil-maritime-and-beachcombers-museum/90590273" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Kaap Skil, Maritime and Beachcombers Museum</a> in Texel, the Netherlands by <a href="http://archinect.com/mecanoo" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Mecanoo</a>; Photo: Christian Richters</p> <p> <img alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/00/0093y6afyehlezn8.jpg" title=""></p> <p> &uarr; <a href="http://archinect.com/firms/project/22588/one-family-house-in-vallvidrera-barcelona-by-ylab-arquitectos-barcelona/83115806" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">House</a> in Vallvidrera, Barcelona, Spain by <a href="http://archinect.com/firms/cover/22588/ylab-arquitectos-barcelona" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">YLAB Arquitectos Barcelona</a>; Photo: Marcela Grassi</p> <p> <img alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/hs/hs9xhbhl69140i71.jpg" title=""></p> <p> &uarr; <a href="http://archinect.com/firms/project/90850601/casa-l-pez-lujano/90851408" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Casa L&oacute;pez / Lujano</a> in Tijuana, Mexico by <a href="http://archinect.com/oficina3" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Oficina 3 estudio de arquitectura</a></p> <p> <img alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/8s/8sbb8f058mwyhhyx.jpg" title=""></p> <p> &uarr; <a href="http://archinect.com/firms/project/4352012/jianfu-palace-museum-the-forbidden-city/89221371" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Jianfu Palace Museum / The Forbidden City</a> in Beijing, China by <a href="http://archinect.com/firms/cover/4352012/tsao-mckown-architects" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">TsAO &amp; McKOWN Architects</a>; Photo: Cheng Shouqi</p> <p> <img alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/0v/0vbfaz1cv53hgmlt.jpg" title=""></p> <p> &uarr; <a href="http://archinect.com/firms/project/5882124/bowstring-truss-house/90844158" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Bowstring Truss House</a> in Portland, OR by <a href="http://archinect.com/worksarchitecture" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Works Partnership Architecture (W.PA)</a></p> <p> <img alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/ou/oucozzz0t5fn68wi.jpg" title=""></p> <p> &uarr; <a href="http://archinect.com/firms/project/21894916/villa-oppenheim/82742865" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Villa Oppenheim</a> ...</p> http://archinect.com/news/article/90300008/wood-product-said-to-be-rotting-in-make-it-right-homes-in-new-orleans Wood product said to be rotting in 'Make It Right' homes in New Orleans Alexander Walter 2014-01-02T15:30:00-05:00 >2014-01-03T18:59:54-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/nz/nzzjq5ztnl0wzns5.jpg" width="514" height="416" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>Actor Brad Pitt&rsquo;s Make It Right Foundation, which has built 100 energy-efficient new homes in the Hurricane Katrina-ravaged Lower 9th Ward, is considering legal action against the manufacturer of an innovative glass-infused wood that was used in some of the homes&rsquo; outdoor steps and front porches.
