Shigeru Ban Architects shared with us their timelapse video for their latest construction, the IE Paper Pavilion. Made up of 173 paper tubes, this temporary structure is located in the grounds of IE’s campus and will be used to host executive education events and other activities. The structural design is eminently efficient. It took only two weeks to build, is based on sustainability objectives, and there was a requirement that it be a temporary construction. For more information on the project, please visit here.

IE Master in Architectural Design presents the Online Master Classes series: Stan Allen

Traditional histories of Urbanism have seen the city as something separate from nature, organized according to its own rules and conventions. Given the current emphasis on environment and sustainability, and recent experiments in the sustainable urbanism, it makes sense to revisit the history of the city from a new perspective. This seminar will look briefly at the history of the city from the 19th century to the present through the lens of landscape and nature. Beginning with Haussmann and Cerda, we will look at Fredrick Law Olmsted and the City Beautiful Movement, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Broadacre City proposal and post-war suburban development in the US, ending with the emergence of Landscape Urbanism in the late 1990’s.

Date: June 19, 2013. 17:00 Madrid time.
Title: “Architecture, Cities and Nature”
Speaker: Stan Allen, SAA Prinicipal. Academic Advisor at IE Master in Architectural Design.

Initially envisioned by two architecture students and built for the European Solar Decathlon 2012 in , the goal of Odooproject was to encourage a new sustainable life by designing a house where as much time as possible can be spent outdoors.
