Urban Omnibus New York City’s coastal communities and maritime environments are the subject of a lot of renewed attention in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. Practical urban strategy debates of whether to retreat or rebuild do not deal with speculative questions about how the new normal of stronger storms and seasonal inundation might actually suggest new forms of city life. This past semester, in a landscape architecture studio at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design, Chris Reed (working with David Mah, Leire Asensio Villoria, Silvia Benedito, Zaneta Hong, Eduardo Rico, and Enriquetta Llabras) charged his students with exactly this kind of speculation, introducing questions of urbanism and citymaking into the core sequence of studio work for landscape architects.

ArchitectureWeek - 2009.0603 Brooklyn is a hub of innovative architecture and design, with dozens of young professionals commissioning or undertaking their own eco-sensitive renovations to existing brownstones and low-rise attached buildings throughout the borough. Tighthouse, a Passive House brownstone retrofit, sits at the end of a string of two-story buildings constructed in 1899 that share a tree-lined block with larger brownstones built around the same time, centrally located off Fifth Avenue in the neighborhood of Park Slope. It is the first certified Passive House in New York City and meets the standards for new construction, surpassing the EnerPHit certification.

LowLine: An Underground Park on NYC's Lower East Side by Dan Barasch What is the LowLine?We want to transform an abandoned trolley terminal on the Lower East Side of Manhattan into the world’s first underground park. It will be a new kind of public space, using solar technology for natural illumination, and cutting edge design to capture and highlight a very special industrial space. Buoyant Ecologies Float Lab The Buoyant Ecologies Float Lab is a prototype for a new kind of resilient coastal architecture. It merges expertise from design, advanced composites manufacturing, and marine ecology to imagine a floating architecture of the future that can exist productively with its surrounding environment. The project has developed through a multi-year partnership between academia and industry that serves as a model for expanding architectural agency beyond architecture’s traditional disciplinary limits.

LeveridgeDesign It has been one of those serendipitous weeks where one product has come at me from all different angles, in this instance the ubiquitous guitar. First I made contact on Facebook with an old college friend and read about his new guitar design and build venture in the UK: Then I was contacted by a young entrepreneur from NYU, Rafael Atijas, with a really unique and very creative idea, His creative web campaign to generate seed funding to strike the first major chord into the chorus of mass producing the idea is brilliant.In the designers own words: Hello there!

Gradually her focus shifted to the use of textiles, light and finishes in interior space and, at the same time, to the design of gardens and landscapes. In 1991, she founded Inside Outside.

Hong Kong’s ozone pollution levels nearly doubled over two decades, report from local air-quality watchdog shows Levels of ozone, a major air pollutant and greenhouse gas, have nearly doubled in the past 21 years in Hong Kong, though certain other pollutants dipped in the same period, a study by a local air-quality watchdog revealed on Monday. The Clean Air Network review, based on data from the Environmental Protection Department, found the yearly average concentration of ozone reached 54.29 micrograms per cubic metre in 2019, up from 29.56 in 1998. Ozone pollution was particularly bad on the western side of Hong Kong, which included Tuen Mun, Yuen Long and Tai Po, although the highest level of ozone pollution was in Tseung Kwan O. “The districts to the west of Hong Kong are particularly susceptible to regional air pollution and it is likely this is the reason for the high levels of ozone pollution there,” said Loong Tsz-wai, Clean Air Network’s senior community relations manager.
