Moving away from architecture's traditional focus on the look and making of buildings, Spatial Agency proposes a much more expansive field of opportunities in which architects and non-architects can operate. It suggests other ways of doing architecture. In the spirit of Cedric Price the project started with the belief that a building is not necessarily the best solution to a spatial problem. The project attempts to uncover a second history of architecture, one that moves sharply away from the figure of the architect as individual hero, and replaces it with a much more collaborative approach in which agents act with, and on behalf of, others.

Flavorwire You can finally stop chugging the dreamwine — HBO’s Game of Thrones is officially back for its second season, and you’ll want to be as clearheaded as possible for what’s about to go down in the Seven Kingdoms. But before we get into that, how about a quick refresher on where things currently stand? Warning: Possible spoilers ahead! The long summer is finally drawing to a close. Ned Stark’s head is still on a spike in the King’s Landing, where the only other Stark left is poor, dutiful Sansa, who has been taken hostage by King Joffrey and his mother the Queen Regent; her sister Arya, now posing as a boy and going by Arry, left town with a ragtag group headed up by Yoren, a recruiter for the Night’s Watch.

Go Inside 16 Top Designers' Homes “When you have light-filled rooms, subtle textures and color shifts are illuminated. The walls and moldings, as well as the larger pieces, are all painted a matte, soft pale grey to act as a neutral backdrop for the pops of color that come from smaller gestures like the blue lining of the draperies, the accessories and the art,” Barbara Barry says of her Beverly Hills living room. The seating pieces, cocktail table, pillow fabrics, carpet and floor lamp were all designed by Barry. Photo by David Meredith.

InBetween House House Karuizawa, Japan Koji Tsutsui & Associates, Tokyo, Japan 2011 World Architecture Festival 2011 - Category Winner South Elevation: Cottages & Thin Folding RoofIwan Baan The client chose a sloped site surrounded by Japanese larch trees in a mountainous region of Karuizawa, Japan, (an hour commute away from Tokyo on a bullet train) as the ideal location for their home. This 178sqm house sits on an artificially leveled area of the site created thirty years ago and left unused. Since the client wanted a house that seamlessly blends into the natural surrounding, topography and local culture, we designed this house as a cluster of small mountain cottages. It consists of five single pitched roof cottages that are clad in the local larch wood siding.
