The hope for this endeavor is to help students and applicants who are starting from a disadvantage to better prepare for architecture school.</p> http://archinect.com/blog/149968809/the-shaper The Shaper Roberto Lopez 2016-09-15T17:44:00-04:00 >2016-09-21T17:53:53-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/q0/q0yvvjxrq98bg9fs.jpg" width="514" height="315" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>The Shaper talks about Architectural Concrete, Technics, Architects, Brutalism, Impossible Shapes, Fairfaced Concrete Buildings and all the Beautiful of these Naked Surfaces... My experience in this field working in some projects from top architects such as Calatrava, Hadid, Kuma... (among others), through the company PERI, lights an enthusiasm to deepen this world. I want to share, learn, and enjoy The Shaper with you!</p> http://archinect.com/blog/149968532/disrupt-ve DISRUPT/VE Austin Samson 2016-09-14T13:12:00-04:00 >2016-09-16T21:50:13-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/pv/pvfyu1ge0ylnw5di.jpg" width="514" height="629" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Using an Ad-Hoc approach to digital computation, new coherency between architectural elements can be discovered. History has shown that certain techniques or processes are capable of solving problems that they were not originally intended to solve. Nicholas De Monchaux has outlined many of these scenarios in his novel "Space Suit". By researching processes of making that are external to typical architecture, designers can generate relationships between existing an new formal qualities.</p> http://archinect.com/blog/149968400/off-narratives off-NARRATIVES: 3Ecologies 2016-09-13T18:44:00-04:00 >2016-09-16T19:29:19-04:00 <p>off-NARRATIVES: is a space for the exploration of detours in architecture and design discourse. The blog's inception is in alignment with the "off-modern" perspective; drawing from the works and teachings of the Svetlana Boym among other writers and thinkers in the 20th and 21st centuries. off-NARRATIVES: seeks to contribute to contemporary architectural discourse through observations, essays, book reviews, serial narratives, and other works of original research and the theory.</p> http://archinect.com/blog/149963461/urban-ecosystems-and-landscape-conservation-in-the-21st-century Urban Ecosystems And Landscape Conservation In The 21st Century marzarts 2016-08-15T23:53:00-04:00 >2016-08-22T20:51:03-04:00 <p>It is sometimes said that the industrial revolution spurred the largest human migration in history. This migration is first spread through Asia, Europe and Latin America and is still in the process of transforming the rest of the world, including Africa because of poverty had been with a slow development, where causes environmental imbalances at the biosphere of our planet.</p> http://archinect.com/blog/149963049/tracing-the-logic-of-city-building-activity-through-its-built-form Tracing the logic of City building Activity, through its built form narendra 2016-08-13T05:09:00-04:00 >2016-08-15T12:21:20-04:00 <p>All the cities are different from each other. This variation is observed in the urban form and the urban pattern. These urban patterns are human response to land. Each city has a certain geography, climate, natural resources and natural deficit. Humans respond to these conditions and built the city that makes each city different from the other. Some are built in desert, some along sea, river, some on hills, and some on plateaus. </p> http://archinect.com/blog/149957514/the-socratic-method The Socratic Method Sean Joyner 2016-07-12T18:41:00-04:00 >2016-09-21T07:00:06-04:00 <p>This blog explores ideas about design and how it relates to our lives through research and critical thinking.

There are also professional ways on what design is, and how to achieve and accomplish these things such as how one can make their building more attractive. I'll share my content about how architecture has taken a step into the abstract, as more architects try to steer away from the normal to step outside the box.</p> http://archinect.com/blog/148658667/haute-architecture Haute Architecture HauteOffice 2016-02-21T14:00:00-05:00 >2016-02-22T14:54:36-05:00 <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd"> <html><head><meta></head></html> http://archinect.com/blog/148152111/archviz ArchViz hanafi muhamads 2016-02-15T00:03:00-05:00 >2016-08-28T07:00:07-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/l4/l4aapx52ul4ib7g2.jpg" width="514" height="343" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>The entire unfolding of the plot is a philosophical exploration of all the consequences of that idea &ndash; art, architecture and design It will start with this, as well as spreading my ideas and exploration in design. the blog will slowly be filled as my career goes on till the day i becoming professional architect</p> http://archinect.com/blog/147857510/new-buildings New Buildings Mr.X 2016-02-11T04:20:00-05:00 >2016-02-15T11:41:14-05:00 <p>An Essay On New Buildings</p> http://archinect.com/blog/147436751/green-beautiful-alive Green.Beautiful.Alive KJohn 2016-02-05T17:20:00-05:00 >2016-09-01T07:02:28-04:00 <p>Born from passion Green.Beautiful.Alive describes the natural realm that surrounds us in all its beauty, all its complexity.

The truth about architecture firms and architecture schools. It's about this cesspool of a thing we call the "architecture profession" and its horrible culture (and some of the its people!). To those who are offended or put off by the tone and content of this blog, I have one message: Deal with it! To those who want the truth out there: I will do my very best to deliver and I assure you that nothing will stop me.

For too long, the profession have had to put up with second rate software, designed for generic "professional services" firms. The result is often that these systems are not used for the critical task of running projects financially. What do we want systems to do?, do we want to resource weekly or monthly - or at all? </p> http://archinect.com/blog/135258543/d-l-s-design-lab-sarup D L S | Design Lab SARUP mgamberg 2015-08-27T11:48:00-04:00 >2016-09-05T07:00:09-04:00 <p>Updates from the Chicago studios &amp; design lab of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee School of Architecture and Design.
