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. Designers were fascinated by cars for at least forty years, beginning with Le Corbusier’s 1925 plan to rebuild much of Paris, with towers in a park and sunken freeways. Consider the similarities between Corbu and Bjarke. Dr.

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.

Defining #parametric #design and #architecture. 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. We’ll now start thinking about how we designers and architecture could give a comprehensive defintion of such concepts. image: Theverymany In the meanwhile we’ll just try to find links between parametric design and other notions that could help us to have a general idea of the territory we are moving through. For example, we could start with the notion of “growth” and evolution. Image: source He explains that “an organism is so complex a thing, and growth so complex a phenomenon, that for growth to be so uniform and constant in all the parts as to keep the whole shape unchanged would indeed be an unlikely and an unusual circumstance.

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. While some disagree with the notion of categorizing work to fit into a style, Schumacher calls for a conceptual reconstruction, meaning that we must disregard style as a matter of appearance, and move to understand style as “a design research program conceived in the way that paradigms frame scientific research programs.”
