Toward Cycle Cities: How Architects Must Make Bikes Their Guiding Inspiration Toward Cycle Cities: How Architects Must Make Bikes Their Guiding Inspiration If Henry Ford were reincarnated as a bike maker, Le Corbusier as an architect of buildings and cities for bikes, and Robert Moses as their bike-loving ally in government, today’s bike plans would be far more ambitious in scope. Ford would be aiming to sell billions of bikes, Corb would be wanting to save the whole world, and, even if it took him a lifetime, Moses would be aiming to leave a permanent mark. They would want to give bicycle transport a leg-up, like the leg-up the motorcar received from farmlands being opened for suburban development. So who are our modern-day, bicycle-loving Le Corbusiers? And what, exactly, is their task? In any era, the preoccupations architects share with planners stem from whatever mode of transportation is on everyone’s minds.

UNStudio launches open source knowledge sharing - UNStudio UNSTUDIO LAUNCHES OPEN SOURCE KNOWLEDGE SHARING Unique knowledge developed through building practice is the new core value of architecture BEYOND COLLABORATION TOWARDS CO-CREATION In June this year UNStudio will launch the new organisation of its practice as an open-source knowledge-based practice operating projects around four specialised Knowledge Platforms. As part of the reorganisation of the studio a new interactive online knowledge platform will be launched, aimed at facilitating the open exchange of knowledge, with the ultimate goal of introducing and encouraging the expansion from a collaborative to a co-creative working model for architecture.

Architectures - La maison Vitra de Herzog et de Meuron, 2009
And guess what!? It actually works! We've complained often about how badly designed architect's websites often are, and we're not the only ones. Too many options, too much flash, too many pop-ups, and way, way too much helvetica. Architects tend to be good at designing things other than architecture, but they also tend to forget that websites are not "think pieces." Herzog & de Meuron, though, have gotten it right.

– 26 October 2010 This is not going to be the most objective review of Jane Burry and Mark Burry‘s latest book, The New Mathematics of Architecture (Amazon) , because I produced over 50 of the book’s illustrations, but hopefully this also allows me to offer some insight into the production. Story Hall in Melbourne – Aperiodic tiling The book itself has been under production for almost seven years. It was conceived during the 2003 ‘Non-standard Architectures Exhibition’ at the Pompidou Center where Mark Burry exhibited, and gestated while many of the projects inside the book were built.

Defining #parametric #design and #architecture :: complexitys image: Wikipedia Recently we have been often asked “What is Parametric Design and Architecture?” Even if we are daily working with this notions, the answer is not so easy. Defining #parametric #design and #architecture :: complexitys
Mister Gaga Tout le monde a eu sa période Libeskind, en particuliers ceux d’entre nous qui sont passés sur les ban(c)s de l’école d’archi entre, disons, 1995 et 2005. Le projet hallucinant du musée juif (extension au musée historique de Berlin), par son geste très explosif, soufflait autour de lui un grand nombre d’idées reçues sur l’architecture muséo-touristique, concrétisant un certain nombre de positions militantes contre la culture neutralisante de la muséographie , le basculement de l’architecture « contenante » devenant elle même le contenu inremplissable du musée (le musée juif est tellement plus beau « vide »). Le signifié devenu, à ses risques et périls, signifiant. En en payant les conséquences. dailyCharrette | Architecture & Culture Urbaine dailyCharrette | Architecture & Culture Urbaine

Parametricist Manifesto / Patrik Schumacher We have seen a growing interest in parametric design as it offers a new approach to architecture based on advanced computational design techniques. As parametricism becomes a tool more designers are turning toward, is this method beginning to define the style of our time? In an effort to identify our architectural style to allow it to be recognized, Patrik Schumacher, a partner at Zaha Hadid, has communicated his beliefs in his Parametricist Manifesto. “As a style, parametricism is marked by its aims, ambitions, methodological principles, and evaluative criteria, as well as by its characteristic formal repertoire.” More about the manifesto after the break.
