AD Round Up: TYIN tegnestue

© Pasi Aalto

TYIN was established in 2008 and has built projects in poor and underdeveloped areas of Thailand, Uganda, Sumatra and Norway. Solutions to fundamental challenges call for an architecture where everything serves a purpose, an architecture that follows necessity.
For today’s Round Up we have five great projects previously featured of this Norwegian architects. The main image belongs to Soe Ker Tie House, 6 sleeping units as a solution to shelter 24 children of an orphanage in Noh Bo. You can’t miss one of the winners of 2009 AD Building of the Year, the Safe Haven Library or the Bath House also in Safe Haven, both with a budget under the 5000(USD). Check out Old Market Library, TYIN’s proposal after the market fire. Finally, revisit the amazing Boathouse in More og Romsdal, Norway.

Villa Asserbo: A Sustainable, Printed House That Snaps Together

Villa Asserbo, a house whose printed pieces “snap” together, by Danish architects Eentileen. Photo via Fast Company.

UPDATE: This post originally stated that Villa Asserbo was 3D Printed, when in fact its pieces were printed using rapid prototyping technology (a subtractive, rather than additive process).

We’ve covered a lot here at ArchDaily, but most of our coverage has been speculative and, frankly, futuristic – could we, one day, print out Gaudi-esque stone structures? Or even print a biologically-inspired, living house? 

But today we heard a story about an alternative to 3D Printing‘s capabilities in the here and now - and its implications are pretty exciting.

In a small town outside of Copenhagen, Danish architects Eentileen joined forces with London-based digital fabrication and architecture specialists, Facit Homes, to create Villa Asserbo: a 1,250 square foot, sustainable home made from Nordic plywood fabricated via CNC miller and easily “snapped” together.  

No heavy machinery, no cranes, no large labor force. Just a couple of guys, a few easily printed pieces, and six weeks.

Get more details about this sustainable, printed House, after the break…

Venice Biennale 2012: “Álvaro Siza. Viagem sem Programa”

Recent award recipient of the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement and Portuguese master architect, Álvaro Siza, will be honored with an exhibition exclusively dedicated to his most personal aspects as one of the leading players in the international design scene at the 2012 Venice Biennale. The collateral event, “Álvaro Siza. Viagem sem Programa”, will feature an exclusive collection of 53 works, personally selected by the architect himself for this event, that were developed from travel notes and sketches. The exhibit will be organized in sequential order as a narration of Siza’s work in architecture and concept of life. It will be seen as “a succession of prospects, dreams, memories and the faces of unknown persons and friends encounters in that extraordinary “Journey without a plan”, which is life itself.”

AD Architecture School Guide: University of Kentucky College of Design

“Manhattan Redux” Paducah, KY, image via

Early in August, we introduced Sherin Wing’s latest exciting series she’s writing for ArchDaily: The AD Architecture School Guide. In case you missed it, you can check Sherin’s review of the University of Utah here. And don’t forget to follow her on Twitter if you want to provide any feedback.

At the University of Kentucky College of Design or UK/CoD, the School of Architecture has taken the goals of engagement, service, and education as an opportunity to transform not just the physical landscape but the economy and social structure of the Commonwealth as well. It is, frankly, an exciting program. And as exemplified by the The River Cities Project, practical skills are combined with pedagogy to enrich and improve the lives of all people: students, faculty and the Commonwealth of Kentucky. If that seems like a tall order, read on because this is definitely a program that succeeds.

West 18th Street / ODA


Recently, we shared ODA’s honorable mention proposal for the National Library of Israel which fosters an open haven for learning and activity.  The New-York based firm is also working on projects a bit closer to home in Manhattan that approach zoning restrictions with an air of optimism.  ODA explained, “We embrace those parameters (zoning ordinances) and use them as the DNA of our buildings. If carefully studied, NYC’s zoning allows for many interpretations that follows logical principals.”
