The IE Master in Work Space Design presents the Online Master Classes series.
Introducing: “Codesigning Workspace: The future for collaborative environments” with Oliver Marlow from Studio Tilt.
Collaboration is by its very definition about people, and about transforming their relationships with one another. Using space as a way to transform these relationships is at the heart of a collaborative environment: It needs to be open, inspiring, collegiate and creative. Designing workspace is changing too, to keep up. Without the user at the heart of workspace design a space will suffer in its conception. But fostering and harnessing these values as the space evolves is the crucial next step to the environment of the future, remaining adaptable, interactive, and iterative. How do we do this? What is the future of the collaborative environment?
Date: June 25, 2013. 17:00 Madrid.
Speaker: Oliver Marlow, Studio Tilt. Professor at IE Master in Work Space Design.

Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects, in collaboration with Friis & Moltke, just won the competition to design the Ny Anstalt correctional facility in Nuuk, Greenland. The 8,000 square meter facility is the first such facility in Greenland, focusing on the contrast between beauty and roughness as a guiding theme for the project. This concept is also present in the choice of materials: concrete, wood and corten steel, which is rooted in a desire to adapt the complex to the landscape. More images and architects’ description after the break.

Completed in 1994, the Igualada Cemetery was designed by Enric Miralles and Carme Pinos to be a place of reflection and memories. After 10 years of construction, their envision of a new type of cemetery was completed and began to consider those that were laid to rest, as well as the families that still remained.
The Igualada Cemetery is understood by the architects to be a “city of the dead” where the dead and the living are brought closer together in spirit. As much as the project is a place for those to be laid to rest, it is a place for those to come and reflect in the solitude and serenity of the Catalonian landscape of Barcelona, Spain.

At just a little over 50 years old, the University of California San Diego is one of the younger college campuses in the United States, but despite this it is one of the most architecturally fascinating universities around. In the official UCSD campus guide, Dirk Sutro emphasizes that “UCSD does not have a single example of the historical-revival styles prevalent at other University of California campuses… and at San Diego’s two other major universities”. The history of UCSD architecture is one of ambition, which has made the campus a display case of modernism in all of its forms from the last half a century.
Thanks to photographer Darren Bradley, we can now share this history and a selection of the exciting structures it has produced.

On May 18th, we celebrate the 130th birthday of one of the most highly regarded modern architects of the 20th century, Walter Gropius. Gropius’ contribution to architecture is that of an architect, philosopher and educator. He was the founder of the Bauhaus, the German “School of Building” that embraced a “total art” in the arts’ production and influence in the social context. This “laboratory” was an effort to incorporate the elements of art, architecture, graphic design, interior design, industrial design, and typography in its design, development and production.
