ArchDaily | Broadcasting Architecture Worldwide Géographie du juste et de l’injuste Comme un écho aux mobilisations des gilets jaunes, qui replacent la problématique au cœur du débat public, le dernier ouvrage de Jacques Lévy, Théorie de la justice spatiale, référence assumée à la célèbre Théorie de la justice de John Rawls, propose une analyse spatiale des inégalités sociales. Le géographe, titulaire depuis peu du prix Vautrin-Lud considéré par certains comme le Nobel de la discipline, s’est associé pour l’occasion à Jean-Nicolas Fauchille et Ana Povóas, deux chercheurs-urbanistes avec qui il a l’habitude de collaborer [1] Sur la base d’enquêtes menées auprès de citoyens européens et d’une lecture attentive des grands théoriciens de la justice, d’Aristote à Amartya Sen en passant par John Rawls ou Robert Nozick, le livre explore les dimensions spatiales de la justice. La thèse des auteurs peut se résumer ainsi : l’essor des mobilités donne aux individus le choix du territoire dans lequel ils souhaitent habiter. Mais ce choix implique des responsabilités.

BEAUTIFUL BUILDING REUSE: The Barn House in Belgium | Inhabitat photographs by Danica Kus Building reuse is often overshadowed by the long green shadow of new high performance architecture. But the intrinsic nature of repurposing and bringing second life to an otherwise discarded structure is a sustainable idea we can’t ignore, especially when it’s done as gracefully as this old barn redux in Belgium. Architect Rita Huys of Buro2 skillfully transformed this agricultural icon into a beautiful, modern dwelling known simply as The Barn House. photographs by Danica Kus The Barn House beams with clean, updated lines that emphasize the structure’s surrounding natural setting. With it’s fantastic fusion of old and modern ideas, The Barn House stands out among sustainable reuse building projects. + Buro2 Via Wallpaper

un didi Bruce Bégout - « L’écologie radicale et le capitalisme font des ruines des objets honteux, désuets, impossibles » (Usbek & Rica, 17/04/2022) Avec cette accumulation de citations, je voulais produire d’emblée un effet surprenant et formaliste pour le lecteur, en hommage au projet de Walter Benjamin d’écrire un livre composé uniquement de citations. Par ailleurs, je travaille sur ce livre depuis sept ou huit ans et j’avais accumulé nombre de textes et de fragments sur le sujet qui me semblaient éclairants. Avec le recul, effectivement, on se rend compte que de nombreuses personnes ont eu très tôt l’impression que ce que la modernité architecturale produisait était d’une fragilité, non accidentelle, mais essentielle. Bref, je voulais que le prologue reflète toutes ces interrogations, ce trouble dans la culture matérielle abandonnant la consistance et la persistance au profit de la vitesse, du passage, de l’évanescence. Mais, au même moment, cet esprit moderne et bourgeois valorise également la circulation de la valeur, de la mode, du choc, du flux : ce que Zygmunt Bauman appelle cent ans plus tard la « société liquide ».

2009 January « Noumena Matt Culbreth is a splendid sponge. He is constantly listening to music and soaking the sound waves into his memory bank to invest into future remixology, currently under the moniker ‘Cave Manners‘. Groups like MSTRKRFT, Bloody Beetroots, Crookers, Justice, Fake Blood, Kissy Sellout, Para One, DLake, Boys Noize, Le Castlevania, Bag raiders, Chew Fu, and friend and mentor Blanche DuBoi$ influence his dance beats on both subconscious and more purposeful levels. One can imagine the synthetic sounds that invisibly tickle the bloodstream, a pulsating sensation which reveals itself through a bopping head and eventually a bouncing body. It took him 3 months to complete his first EP using mostly Propellerheads’ Reason program and Audacity to cut vocal samples (Reason doesn’t have a sampler, which “is a huge detriment to remix production“. Culbreth recommends Logic Sampler which offers both parts). Continue reading

Vatnsmýri While urban planning is always an exciting and enjoyable task, developing plans for capitals and key areas inside them is more than just exciting and enjoyable – it is an exceptionally demanding challenge for any ambitious society. Reykjavík is certainly an ambitious city comprised of an equally ambitious society, striving to ensure that its built environment be organised so as to provide the inhabitants with a high quality of life. In addition, residents are characterised by a strong general interest in urban and regional development. Most everyone living in Reykjavík would no doubt agree that Vatnsmýri is one of our dear city’s key areas. Whether we are of the opinion that this area should continue serving as an airport or not, we can all agree that this important tract of land, situated so centrally, ought to be shown special consideration and must be planned as a whole that can contribute even further to the community.
