Stan Allen: Four Projects (Source Books in Architecture)

06:00 - 20 April, 2017
Stan Allen: Four Projects (Source Books in Architecture)

The Source Books in Architecture series documents the work of the Herbert Baumer Distinguished Visiting Professors at the Austin E. Knowlton School of Architecture. While previous books have addressed a single project of the Baumer Professor, this one has a slightly different focus. Stan Allen was the Baumer Professor at the school in 2012–13, and this book documents projects that were discussed during Allen’s seminar as well as the theoretical position that Allen began to articulate with Field Conditions in 1996.

Friedman House: SALA Modern Houses Series

05:00 - 20 April, 2017
Friedman House: SALA Modern Houses Series

Built in 1955, and fully restored in 2014, House Friedman was designed by internationally-trained architect Frederic Lasserre, founder of the UBC School of Architecture. Situated near the university, just outside the city of Vancouver limits, the house combines a modernist aesthetic with a distinctly West Coast Modern ethos. Distinguished by its spatial complexity, and by its seamless relationship to the landscape design of Cornelia Oberlander, the house asserts at once its adherence to global modernism while asserting a local aesthetic that has come to be identified as West Coast Modernism.

UrbanLab: Bowling

04:00 - 20 April, 2017
UrbanLab: Bowling

As populations steadily increase in cities, the world’s natural resources are consumed at ever-faster rates. The majority of the world’s populations live in countries where clean water supplies are dwindling, and these water shortages are also quickly translating into food shortages. What can designers do to avert looming water-related realities?

Architecture Matters

03:00 - 20 April, 2017
Architecture Matters

Architecture matters. It matters to cities, the planet, and human lives. How architects design and what they build has an impact that usually lasts for generations. The more we understand architecture―the deeper we probe the decisions and designs that go into making a building―the better our world becomes.

The Flexible City: Sustainable Solutions for a Europe in Transition

04:00 - 19 April, 2017
The Flexible City: Sustainable Solutions for a Europe in Transition

In Europe, the period of great economic and demographic growth is largely over. Unlike in Latin America, Asia or Africa, the boundaries of European cities are no longer expanding, but have essentially come to a halt. The physical growth of European cities has come to an end. Instead of building new spaces outside city lines, now the more urgent task is making what already exists sustainable.

Open Call: School Without Classrooms (Berlin)

03:00 - 19 April, 2017
Open Call: School Without Classrooms (Berlin)

The competition seeks the creation of a middle school (age group 5-12) that completely negates the present day 'bench-table-chalkboard' idea of a classroom and a regularized building typology of a school. The competition seeks to radicalize the school system through architecture not only in terms of improving the quality of study environment but revamping the system and breaking all the physical and metaphorical class divisions into an entirely new school system. The competition seeks ideas from participants to create a fun built environment for a middle school that understands the individual needs of each child yet being very collaborative in nature. The school should strive to create a new pedagogical space that emphasizes on people-oriented design in behavioral terms as they interact and use spaces.

Symposium: Mass Customization and Design Democratization

11:14 - 18 April, 2017
Symposium: Mass Customization and Design Democratization

Thanks to parametric design and digital fabrication it is now possible to massproduce non-standard, highly differentiated products, from shoes and tableware to furniture and now even houses. Variety no longer compromises the efficiency and economy of production. Furthermore, parametric definitions of products’ geometry are made accessible via interactive websites to anyone, who could then design their own, unique versions of the product. Such “democratization” of design – through mass-customization – raises many interesting questions such as the authorship of design and the functional and esthetic quality of products (shoes, tableware, furniture, houses…) designed by non-designers. This symposium explores social, cultural and design implications of this emerging “design democracy”, including its technological origins.

Enter the Construction Container Facelift ‪‎architecture‬ ‪competition‬ now! US $6,000 in prize money! Closing date for registration: OCTOBER 6, 2017

As cities expand and construction continues, citizens have grown to accept the eyesore that accompanies it. Construction containers are often sighted blocking city views and crowding construction locations. We don’t think that the inhabitants of cities need to compromise their cityscapes with construction containers just in the name of progress.

The monograph artfully showcases three decades of the firm’s work with commentary about its overarching philosophy and approach to each project from the voices of its leadership.
