Estudio Teddy Cruz - La Jolla - Architects In the context of a post 9-11 political equator that divides the world and the city between enclaves of mega-wealth and sectors of poverty, urbanities of labor and surveillance, the formal and informal, our institutions of architecture representation and display have lost their socio-political relevance and advocacy. estudio teddy cruz : from the global border to the border neighborhood The perennial alliance between militarization and urbanization is reenacted at the San Diego / Tijuana border and later reproduced in many US neighborhoods, as the expansion of a social legislation of fear is transforming the 11 million illegal laborers who mostly live there into criminal suspects. What are the implications of these forces of control on one hand and of non-conformity on the other in the reshaping of the American City? Our projects primarily engage the micro scale of the neighborhood, transforming it into the urban laboratory of the 21st century.

Permanent Camping / Casey Brown Architecture Architects: Casey Brown Architecture Location: Mudgee NSW Design Architect: Rob Brown Project Architect: Hernan Alvarez Area: 18.0 sqm Year: 2007 Photographs: Rob Brown, Penny Clay Builder: Jeffrey Broadfield Structural Consultant: Ken Murtagh Mechanical Consultant: Jonathan Temple Located on a remote pristine mountain on a sheep station in central western NSW, this structure was the realisation of a dream for the client. Sited at the edge of a ridge surrounded by large granite boulders and ancient dead trees, the tower has panoramic views for hundreds of miles to the horizon. Conceived as a retreat for one or two people, the building has a minimal 3x3m footprint providing shelter. The structure is a two storey copper clad tower; the sides open up on the ground level to provide wide verandahs to the north, east and western elevations.
This Nazi Beach Holiday Resort Stands Completely Empty Alongside a wide, sandy beach on the German island of Rügen in the Baltic Sea stands the world’s biggest hotel. A hotel so huge it stretches over a staggering three miles and has 10,000 bedrooms all facing the sea. Surprisingly even though this beach resort was built more than 70 years ago, not a single guest has ever stayed there. That is because this beach resort named Prora was build by the Nazis between 1936 and 1939 on Hitler’s orders. During that same period, Hitler was making preparations for war which ultimately took priority, and the massive building project was never finished.

Deskontalia Store / VAUMM Architects: VAUMM Location: Donostia, San Sebastian, Spain Design Team: Javier Ubillos Pernaut, Marta Alvarez Pastor, Iñigo garcía Odiaga, Jon Muniategiandikoetxea Markiegi, Tomás Valenciano Tamayo Year: 2012 Photography: Aitor Ortiz When somebody thinks about a shop, he can hardly avoid thinking about the products sold inside, and therefore those products are those which give sense of the need for a space. What would it happen if that object of desire was any? What if no one? For Deskontalia store, located in a urban downtown street, the sale has occurred even before one reaches the local. The space should be a pick up point for any product that one could imagine buying over the Internet, but even something else. Namhae Cheo-ma House / JOHO Architecture Architects: JOHO Architecture Location: Gyeongsangnam-do, Korea Architect In Charge: Jeonghoon Lee Area: 576 sqm Photographs: Sun Namgoong, Jeonghoon Lee Rural houses, or farmhouses are easily seen around countryside. However, these artificial forms are being placed here and there thoughtlessly in Mother Nature. A common stereotyped rural houses around Namhae, Jindo, and Pyeongchang have set a scenery of 20th century’s Korean farm village. One might say, the system of a local constructor also being a designer also being a constructor is extremely economical in terms of building rural houses. However, mother nature we have is too nice to only covered with identically produced rural houses.
1960s Utopian Groups The 1960s saw a second wave of utopian architecture in Europe following the social utopias imagined in the 1920s. Some of the approaches focused on emerging cultural conditions, such as mobility and flexibility, whilst others, such as those of Constant Nieuwenhuys and Yona Friedman, saw their utopias as instruments of societal change. What often related these approaches architecturally were mega-structures that could be 'plugged-into' or 'clipped-onto', providing a framework which could be modified, adapted and extended.

Open E Land Open E Land is part of a worldwide movement working to transition to a sustainable, just, resilient social-economic model. Our name reflects our beliefs: Knowledge should be shared openly and not encumbered by patents or trade secrets. Our economic, environmental, and energy problems are all linked and cannot be solved in isolation. We need to profoundly change our agricultural systems and our relationship with the land. Inspired by the free software, Open Source Ecology and maker movements we’re developing our site in Extremadura, western Spain, to be a space for learning about and developing open source projects; in the vein of energy and food production, water use, communications, structural building, or anything else which could prove of value to the world.
