  • The Familiar Typology - The Suburbs of London, Tokyo and Buenos Aires
    By nugent_denise_: As part of the Cavin Family Traveling Scholarship, this blog aims to research the suburban condition as they exist in different contexts: London, England; Tokyo, Japan; and Buenos Aires, Argentina. The prolificacy of suburbia, internationally, serves as a physical archive of domestic norms, political ambitions and topographical responses. This research seeks to decipher how cultural and historical standards have formalized themselves within the familiar context of the suburban home.

  • Thirty-five & 5 - A continuing journey
    By TAB1006: This is an account of my journey towards licensure, the good, the bad, the ugly and the beautiful. At 35, many people, including myself at times, doubt that completion of the journey I started nearly a decade ago can be obtained. But here I am, with 2 years of school and all of my internship ahead of me, finally working in a firm after escaping the world of retail. May these thoughts serve as inspiration for those in doubt, encourage supportive wisdom, and of course, an outlet for frustration!

  • Radio Architect
    By Farzam Kharvari: As the world is developing its way of communication, we, the architects need to be more curious on stuff around us!
    Rise of different philosophies around the globe, rapid growth in our awareness, transformation of communication types and many more items around are leading the ARCHITECTURE to an absolute new brand of its roots!
    It is time to ask: are we, the TRANSFORMERS or are we the results of TRANSFORMATIONS of GENIUS LOCUS (the protective spirit of a place)?

  • Elemental Urbanism
    By James Pereira: I often wonder if all cities should be shaped like Rome; a city that is enourmous yet walkable with all paths leading to monumental icons. Many major cities now look as merely a cemetery of parts; buildings, gridded streets, and parks creating a cityscape of cluster. Even an individual apartment building can be looked at similarly to a microscopic level. This is due to evolution, program, and constraints which alltogether create elements that limit possibility.

  • 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.

  • Idea and Image - It's One in the Same
    By Saba Salekfard, Parker Ammann, Kyat Chin: Someone once asked me, "Don't you want to see it built? Don't you want to be an architect?" For me, architecture always held a greater story. I was more interested in it's narrative and representation, and its ability to reach a broader culture. Heres to exploring its possibilities.

  • Project Costing Systems - Which ones are used and why?
    By Joe Emanuele: This blog is to engage with the profession as to which systems staff actually use, what are the challenges and what should we want from a system. 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?
