Oser la modernité rurale, par Philippe Madec. «L'architecture est un art borné, dit-on ; oui, dans l'esprit des architectes ; mais en lui-même, je n'en connais point de plus étendu. Qu'on fasse entrer dans son projet la considération du temps, du lieu, des peuples, de la destination, et l'on verra varier à l'infini les proportions des pleins, des vides, des formes, des ornements et de tout ce qui tient de l'art»*. Denis Diderot. La doxa contemporaine assigne à l'aménagement du territoire national un horizon urbain métropolitain. Entre les grandes agglomérations et les infrastructures qui les relient, la messe territoriale serait dite. Et cela serait bien normal puisque, dit-on, la population française serait urbaine à plus de 70% ! Voilà pourtant un mensonge statistique car, selon l'INSEE, pour qu'une commune fasse ville, il suffit que sa part agglomérée abrite 2.000 habitants.

On rêve. Résultat de cette hérésie statistique, un modèle de développement territorial inéquitable à l'excès s'impose alors. Philippe Madec.

Pat Flynn best articles & podcasts. I’ve been writing articles and publishing podcasts online since 2008. I’ve also been featured on other sites a fair bit during that time.

It wasn't long before I realized that while short on physical height he was long on design talent. In contrast to his mild manner, he could be uncommonly forceful in thought and action, we became friendly, with Mickey indulging my enthusiasm for Alfred North Whitehead. We also had young children about the same age.

Mickey had studied architectural engineering at Georgia Tech and did much of the engineering for his early work, including the landmark Foulke house near Joplin, Missouri where Mickey had lived before college. I believe we next met in the late sixties at Big Sur, on the California coast where Mickey and his young family seemed influenced by the Hippie movement. I was under the impression that they where sharing quarters with the Gile, an older, very charming man had discovered original Mayan murals at Bonampak. BUILT WORK - HERB GREENE. People | Steve Bishop. Steve Bishop About Steve Bishop believes that sustainability is an essential aspect of any “good” design. As Global Lead of Environmental Impact at IDEO, he helps companies build brands, develop new offerings, and shape their innovation processes by repositioning environmental challenges as platforms for growth. He also works with IDEO colleagues to incorporate a green dimension into the design-thinking approach.

Steve applies his expertise across industries: he’s worked with the US General Services Administration to devise a high-performance green building strategy, helped utilities bring energy efficiency into their smart grids, and designed instrument panels for Ford’s 2010 Fusion Hybrid (for which he holds patents). His portfolio also includes award-winning office furniture and medical injection devices. After earning a graduate degree in product design from Stanford University, Steve returned as guest lecturer and adjunct professor. Speaking Highlights Speaking Topics Published Work.

If we fully accepted the implications of failing to stem global warming, Architecture 2030’s 2030 Challenge wouldn’t be a challenge at all.

We currently have proven antidotes to our energy-guzzling, heavy-carbon footprint ailments, and we have the knowledge and capability to apply the solutions on a broad scale. What is holding us back are belief and conviction. We have a wide gap between our capabilities and our actions, and our home building industry is strangely bipolar: We are both Dr. Jekyll and Mr. The industry doesn’t have high-performance home building as a priority because it has never had its hand forced by consumers.

Therefore, while the industry–consumer relationship should be symbiotic, here it is often mutually destructive instead. But our mistakes can also lead us forward.


Magnesium Oxide-Based Cements: Answer to Climate Change? | Underground New York. “There is a way to make our city streets as green as the Amazon forest. Almost every aspect of the built environment – from bridges to factories to tower blocks, from roads to seawalls – could be turned into structures that soak up carbon dioxide, the main greenhouse gas behind global warming. All we need to do is change the way we make cement.” — John Harrison of TecEco in article “Green Foundations” by Fred Pearce, New Scientist magazine (July 2002) I’ve been researching sustainable building materials for some repair-work in my family’s basement, & being a life-long asthmatic, I already knew about the toxic effects of Portland cement & sheetrock.

Happily I stumbled on a whole “underground network”, an eclectic & colorful assortment of builders, scientists, academics, inventors & designers who are doing their utmost to revolutionize some core building practices around the globe, namely to do with cement production.
