  • Naturally inspired - Innovative landscaping and biophillic design
    By Jemma: This blog covers the most energising and restorative landscaping, biophillic architecture and perma-culture projects taking place across the world!

    I'm interested in how we incorporate nature into our environments, particularly urban environments. As we progress into the twenty-first century, we appear to be moving ever-further from the futuristic aesthetic that our predecessors imagined back in the mid-century.

    This blog looks at the methods and psychology of natural influence.

  • NYC Architecture in Decay - Progressive Architectural Decay
    By jfbautista: Since the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, 2010s and beyond, urban decay has been associated with Western cities, especially in North America, South America and some parts of Europe. Since then, major structural changes in global economies, transportation, and government policies created the economic and then the social conditions resulting in Progressive Urban Decay.

  • DISRUPT/VE - AN AD-HOC APPROACH TO DIGITAL COMPUTATION
    By Austin Samson: 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.

  • Ecopicality - The evaluated truth of the psycho with the eco:::
    By Monte John Latham: Biocities - might be our only hope. Correction, surely; it is our only hope – improved by the cultural sensitivities of simple ecopicality and supporting ecopical ecological principles.

    There is a psyche thing with this. You are very likely to have a plastic switch in a wall near you at the moment; to make an electricity flow. The flick of a switch is a reminder of industry, invention - capacities generally beyond the individual or small community. It is also a bread and butter thing - a r

  • 'Architecture' as a 'Thinking'
    By Pranav Varshney: Architecture is all about thinking. The more you think about the solutions of any architectural problem, the more architectural feelings you will get to design .Thinking depends upon the perception & perception gradually increases with experiences. Just because of acquiring some personal opinion, we architects generally thought some quotes to define the architecture. Here my perspective & my personal quote is " architecture is a shadow ".
    I like to create my blog to spread my thinking to world.
