Towns are quickly growing into cities, and some of the densest places in the world are comprised of makeshift homes, otherwise referred to as slums. Furthermore, already overcrowded cities have to absorb people leaving their rural hometown in hope of job opportunities. There are currently over 1 billion slum dwellers in the world. This number is expected to reach 2 billion by the year 2030. </p> http://archinect.com/blog/120395974/antigravity Antigravity Andrzej Bratkowski 2015-02-10T03:18:00-05:00 >2015-02-10T13:13:42-05:00 <p>Architecture traveler and reporter, interested in sustainable and ecological design, symbiosis of technology and environment.</p> http://archinect.com/blog/120118288/school-of-architecture-and-urban-planning-uwmilwaukee School of Architecture and Urban Planning/UWMilwaukee snatraj 2015-02-06T20:58:00-05:00 >2015-02-06T20:58:39-05:00 <p>Each semester, SARUP turns into a beehive of creative activity, with the collective energy of students and faculty resulting in projects and presentations that excite and intrigue, as they generate enquiry into the disciplines of architecture and urban planning.

We are looking to 1988-1998 to see how the digital and pre digital has played out.

Architecture schools cannot avoid this discussion as many schools still have staggering low numbers of Black and other underrepresented minority students in their programs. I want to help us talk about these issues as we continue to try making our learning environments (the design studio) welcoming for people of all walks of life.</p> http://archinect.com/blog/115420285/the-dirty-south-new-orleans The Dirty South - New Orleans Stefann Plishka 2014-12-09T11:15:00-05:00 >2015-02-11T07:00:01-05:00 <p>The second installation of The Dirty South studio with Jennifer Bonner at Georgia Tech takes on New Orleans. Using the legacy of Dirty South hip hop as inspiration within the framework of a guidebook of B-side tours, students investigated unusual patterns and idiosyncrasies in the city. Projects spanned topics from misuse of Charles Moore's Piazza d'Italia to reappropriation of the city's most controversial monuments to installation of an illegal auction house within the convention center.</p> http://archinect.com/blog/115005403/the-university-of-tokyo-advanced-design-studies-t_ads The University of Tokyo: Advanced Design Studies (T_ADS) Tokyo University T_ADS 2014-12-02T03:56:00-05:00 >2015-01-16T07:00:02-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/fz/fzv3tjokhaodctxe.jpg" width="514" height="356" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Founded in 2014, T_ADS was established to contribute and enhance the state-of-the-art architectural design education, and cultivate architectural culture in Japan.

Pon Kumaresh 2014-09-26T13:48:00-04:00 >2015-02-10T07:00:01-05:00 <p>This blog would attempt to cover basic design factors typically considered in lighting design. In 1998, i was asked about the material of the filament inside the incandescent bulb, for which i did not have a clue, at that time. I am an engineer and i have the aptitude to learn the subject is what i told the interviewer and surprisingly, got into the lighting industry! Perhaps it is that shameful ignorance that gave me a voracious appetite to proactively seek, learn and understand lighting.</p> http://archinect.com/blog/108160398/simply-architect Simply Architect NFucci 2014-09-04T09:04:00-04:00 >2015-02-13T07:00:01-05:00 <p>Follow Nick as he travels through the University of Hartford's Master of Architecture graduate program.

My journey will be inspired by explorations within my surroundings, which will include but not limited to road trips, festivals, exhibition, etc. I will questions and provoke thought within architectural discourse, education, profession, and design.

Globally, more people live in cities than do not. The 'Future Cities', those bucolic heterotopias we were promised, are not here. Instead, we are growing into a world where shelter, environmental justice, clean drinking water, &amp; other basic human rights are negotiated for. How do we, as architects, plan to address those needs? This blog will explore answers to those questions.</p>
