The problem of a great flood in London has been selected by Ángel Martínez García as the main problem to resolve with his architectural final project for the University of Alicante this year. The history of floods in London has been disastrous and repetitive over the years. The first great flood in London in the 20th Century happened in 1901, as reported by the London Daily Graphic that year, much damage was done in the town and they reported that the lower parts of Coventry were completely submerged, the water in some cases rised to the numbers upon the doors. Steve Orland shared an amazing image of that flood here. UTOPIA 100 | An Hybrid City for London UTOPIA 100 | An Hybrid City for London
# MILITARIZED ARCHITECTURES /// Heathrow Fortress Airplot. Weightless by Paisajes Emergentes # MILITARIZED ARCHITECTURES /// Heathrow Fortress Airplot. Weightless by Paisajes Emergentes Two years ago, Greenpeace UK launched an idea competition (see also the video after the break) to fortify the piece of land they acquired in order to prevent a third runway to be built on London Heathrow Airport. The idea was to build an architecture that would prevent the accomplishment of construction. Most teams designed some sort of bunkers (see here and here) or towers (see here), but the Medellin (Columbia) based architecture office Paisajes Emergentes proposed a very peculiar idea whose sense of spectacular is as important as its fragility.
Children Health Resort, Krvavice, Croatia, 1961; architect: Rikard Marasović (© Wolfgang Thaler) For hardcore Modernists visiting Slovenia between the 10th February and the 22nd March the exhibition Unfinished Modernisations: Between Utopia and Pragmatism at the Maribor Art Gallery looks to be something of a treat. A number of exhibitions, lectures and books have recently spawned that look at the architectural legacy left behind the Iron Curtain. This exhibition concentrates on the former Yugoslavia and looks to understand the role architecture and urban planning played in defining Socialism itself. Modernisation of the country was considered a collective achievement during the Socialist period. This attitude tended to engender megalomaniac projects that fit the perceived scale of the national ego.

Roger Anger's house An amazing combination between sculpture and architecture, the splendid expression of Auroville's chiefarchitect Roger Anger breaks the mould of the conventional code of 'four walls and a roof habitation'. A graduate from the classical 'Beaux Arts' in Paris, Roger came to India in 1956. Home to him and hiscompanion Jacqueline, the house has an incredible timelessness about itself. A product of the 60's movement in architecture, with Roger's background as a sculptor, painter, artist, architect, planner and above all a visionary, this house built in the early seventies even today is as contemporary as contemporary can be. As I approach the gate, beyond, there appears a fantasy arising out of the ground in the characteristic red earth of Auroville. The path winding around, the water body, the landscaping with its sculptures are subtly orchestrated mutually enhancing the interplay of ideas as it culminates into the grand finale….. the abode itself.

Putney Mountain Residence by Kyu Sung Woo Architects Putney Mountain Residence by Kyu Sung Woo Architects Architect Kyu Sung Woo designed this house in Vermont for him and his family. The site on the southwestern slope of Putney Mountain is characterized by heavily wooded terrain, large outcroppings of ledge, and dramatic sweeping views. Three clearings in the woods frame the approach to the house from the east and open up the site to the surrounding landscape. The house consists of three simple volumes arranged around a large outcropping of exposed ledge. A living volume faces the western mountains, sleeping quarters face a southern meadow, and a shed volume houses storage and mechanical equipment.
ÁGORA LIBERTARIA A partir del 15M se han realizado diferentes tipos de construcciones informales en las concentraciones por todo el mundo y estoy seguro de que dentro de un tiempo serán motivo de análisis. Bernard Tschumi comentaba cómo aquella construcción se convirtió en arquitectura porque era ocupada por las personas, porque la gente lo entendía como un lugar donde poder reunirse, un espacio acotado donde la utopía podía hacerse realidad. Massimo Mazzone me manda esta sencilla cúpula cargada con un ideario utópico y libertario de las movilizaciones en Roma. ÁGORA LIBERTARIA

I set out late Saturday morning to do my Luminato Circuit. I had plotted a walking route from my house up to Yorkville Village by way of the Red Ball Project Installation on Queen St. West, then south on Yonge Street to the art installations at the Brookfield Place Galleria and then down to Harbourfront to see Cirque du Soleil.
