Structures of Coastal Resilience Exhibition Opening

16:09 - 25 January, 2016

Please join us for the opening of Structures of Coastal Resilience: Designing for Climate Change!

The devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy in October of 2012 has highlighted the vulnerability of urban coastal areas to the effects of catastrophic storms and climate change. Coastal communities must adapt planning strategies to mitigate the risk posed by these natural hazards.

Structures of Coastal Resilience (SCR) matches the latest science with urban and landscape design to propose actionable solutions for buffering against storms. Structures of Coastal Resilience (SCR) is a Rockefeller Foundation-supported project dedicated to studying and proposing resilient designs for urban coastal

The University of Oregon John Yeon Center for Architecture and the Landscape and Design Week Portland invite proposals to define, design, and bring to life Portland’s proposed “green loop”—a six-mile pedestrian/bike urban promenade linking the city’s east and west sides.

The winner(s) will receive up to $20,000 to further develop and implement schemes.

Proposed by the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability in the Central City 2035 Plan, the loop offers a potentially powerful new means of thinking about and traveling through the city. Connecting the two sides of the Willamette River at the Broadway Bridges and Tilikum Crossing, the loop will link

Towards a Hip-Hop Architecture: NYC Edition

Architecture and Hip-Hop are both social, cultural practices that have remained at polar ends of a societal spectrum for most of their existence. Hip-Hop, which historically was born from communities of under-privileged youth, is often at odds with Architecture, a profession that has until recently, existed to almost solely service the top of society. With the affluence of certain hip hop artists – Pharrell Williams, Kanye West and Jay-Z, to name a few – hip hop has begun to encroach the realm of design, and ever so slightly, the dimension of architecture. A new “hip hop architecture” is being born.

Two major tenants, 21st Century Fox and News Corp have pulled plans to relocate to the BIG-designed 2 World Trade Center - the final building planned for the 16 acre site. 2 WTC was unveiled last summer after news broke that BIG would be replacing Foster + Partners as the building's architect. According to a report on The Wall Street Journal, the two media companies based their decision on the high cost of relocating; they plan to stay in their current Midtown site until at least 2025.

The project will be placed on hold until a new tenant is found.
