An Hybrid City for London. 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.

An Hybrid City for London

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. # 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.

# MILITARIZED ARCHITECTURES /// Heathrow Fortress Airplot. Weightless by Paisajes Emergentes

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.

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'.

Roger Anger's house

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.

Architect Kyu Sung Woo designed this house in Vermont for him and his family.

Putney Mountain Residence by Kyu Sung Woo Architects

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.

Ants of the Prairie › 10. Bat Tower

BAT TOWER is the first built prototype in a series of bat habitation projects which explore strategies for increasing public awareness of bats as a critical component of our ecosystem. Bats are effective as natural pesticides, pollinators, and mosquito abatement. Yet they are often considered as a kind of urban pest, and are frequently exterminated by human-run ‘pest control’ services. Their very survival is also being challenged by White Nose Syndrome, a disease which has inexplicably been wiping out large bat populations in northeastern United States.

BAT TOWER is sited and designed to attract and facilitate bat inhabitation. Malpica Harbour / CREUSeCARRASCO Arquitectos.

The harbour was analysed as a place for interrelations and shelter, with the appeal of its fishing industry and its views; a unique location that makes its presence felt in the town with ramps, stairs and balconies.
