What will Glasgow be like in 150 years?

Glasgow – a multi-layered city with a unique character. Throughout the past centuries, Glasgow has passed through various phases and styles, maintaining a very ingenious dialogue through its architecture. Much like any other post-industrial city, Glasgow has both maintained its amalgam presence, as well as left a number of issues that can be creatively resolved by the aspiring architectural society. Buildings such as the tenements have proved their durability and have served Glasgow’s community for the past centuries, with their bay windows becoming much like the eyes of a Glaswegian.

Competition Brief

The United States is a country of immigrants with a long history of receiving new arrivals. In 1886, the statue of “Liberty Enlightening the World” was officially unveiled, and between 1892 and 1954 the Ellis Island Immigration Station processed 12 million immigrants in New York City alone.

Angel Island, in the San Francisco Bay, was home to the West Coast Immigration Station, which was built in 1905. Unlike Ellis Island, new arrivals were housed in barracks on the island under very difficult conditions, some for extended periods of time. Until the station’s closure in 1940, the island was seen as

The Architects' Journal’s 2018 student survey has revealed troublesome, though perhaps not surprising, trends within the profession. The results of the survey, drawn from nearly 500 students in the UK, suggest that the economically fortunate are more likely to succeed within a culture that promotes unsociable and unhealthy working hours.

The numbers paint a bleak picture of the architecture student lifestyle in the UK, where, including tuition fees, students are now forking out an average of £24,000 per year. 44% of respondents identified this as the largest problem for them and their peers.

So as the traditional route into the profession becomes “increasingly out of reach for many,” is it time for schools and offices to reevaluate their methods in order to maintain a diverse, accessible architecture?

BAMB’s Reversible Design Competition

The BAMB - Building As Material Banks – project has been working on developing and integrating tools including reversible design and materials passports in order to enable a systemic shift in the building sector, where dynamically and flexibly designed buildings can be incorporated into a circular economy. Through design and circular value chains, materials, products and components used in renovations and new buildings can sustain their value over time. Instead of being to-be waste, buildings will function as banks of valuable materials – slowing down the usage of resources to a rate that meets the capacity of the planet. Different

2018/19 Fentress Global Challenge: Re-Envisioning the Airport Terminal Building for the Year 2075

Global commerce and the unprecedented demand for travel and have resulted in the proliferation of airports around the world. In their short history, terminal buildings have been criticized for employing generic architectural forms that are unapologetically disconnected from their context and cultural identity. Technical complexity and functional design have often taken precedence over quality and comfort for users.

The “Home-for-All” is a project that is built upon the premise of “thinking together and creating together” with the community. It is an architectural manner that goes further than simply supporting the people affected by the disaster to question the most fundamental meaning of the future of public architecture. I would like students to present proposals that build from and go beyond the concept of “Home-for-All” from a perspective that takes into consideration of people living in our society today. - Toyo Ito
