Healthy Urbanism Proposal / Interface Studio Architects

Courtesy of ISA –

The proposal for Healthy Urbanism is a collaboration between a visionary client, a health scientist and ISA – Interface Studio Architects to investigate the potential for health outcomes to influence large-scale neighborhood and building design. The consulting team developed a conceptual tool in order to bring spatial design and health outcomes into communication with one another. “The Matrix” is a key proposal of the work which creates a bridge between health-related research and literature, factors, health impacts, program, and design parameters. More images and architects’ description after the break.

Architecture City Guide: Philadelphia

This week our Architecture City Guide is headed to . The list of influential architects that have either worked, studied, or taught in is perhaps the only list that challenges the numbers of Founding Fathers that descended on this city of “Brotherly Love.” A brief list includes Sullivan, Kahn, Wright, Pei, Rudolf, Corbusier, Latrobe, Gropius, Mumford, and Furness. That being said, our list of 12 barely scratches the surface of buildings worth seeing in this great city. We would like to hear about your must not miss buildings in the comment section below.
