villa maria, fahlander arkitekter
Justin in materialicious
Villa Maria, somewhere in Sweden [Note: See first comment] Not too long ago, I ran across a quirky little blog called Below the Clouds (written in Swedish), and recently up popped this lovely project which I’m drooling over. I’m mad for wood houses, especially Scandinavian wood houses…. Hit their site to blow up the photos, look closely, and you’ll be able to see the green showing through in the paint job - specifically, it is Falu Verde (green linseed oil paint). I’ve written on Swedish Linseed Oil Paint before.

What Ever Happened to Burnside Bridgehead?
Brian Libby in Portland Architecture Remember a few years ago when there was a big to-do over which developer would win the Portland Development Commission's RFP contract for the Burnside Bridgehead? You can be forgiven if it's a foggy memory by now. In fact, it was a full four years ago that PDC first floated the idea of having a big-box retail outlet there, before withdrawing the plan amidst widespread community uproar against it.

Korean Robots to Construct High-Rises By 2010
admin in mirage.studio.7
We’ve been sending humans to do a robot’s job for quite sometime now, and in a few short years the Korean are going to flood the market with cheap construction robots that promise to cut labor costs by a third, construction time by 15% and the number of construction related accidents. The catch? Our great civilization stands to benefit greatly from cheaper houses, until the robot builders decided to turn us into human fuel cells, that is a big IF. Fear not, the robot does not comes in the shape of a human, it is a simple nuts-and-bots robot arm found mainly in a car assembly line, the Korean Robot will create a construction process almost totally automated, taking advantage of 12 high-tech patents including so-called “intelligent” cranes and the world’s first bolt-tightening robots. The bad news is, countries that supply cheap construction labor such as India, Pakistan and Indonesia could find an increase in unemployment rate due to the preference for construction robots.

casa cachagua, f3 arquitectos
Justin in materialicious
Casa Cachagua, Cachagua, Chile. Built: 2006-2007. This house just knocks my socks off… Black-stained pine on a stone foundation, and extra care was taken to build around the trees, rather than cutting them down. Always a good thing. See some more lovely photos and drawings at Plataforma Arquitectura. Another project the firm did that I’m madly in love with and posted a while ago is House and Chapel in Rupanco, Chile.

hotel elquidomos, f3 arquitectos
Justin in materialicious
Hotel ElquiDomos, Pisco Elqui, Coquimbo, Chile. This astronomy-themed hotel is comprised of large dome-tents (with loft beds!) set on platforms, located high up in the Andes, which are renowned for clear views of the night skies. The domes were designed by Nicolás Fones of the Chilean architectural firm Ftres Arquitectos for Eco Domos, which supplies domes for the deluxe camping and residential markets in South America. Similar to this hotel is Whitepod, located high up in the Swiss Alps. Here in the U.S. we have Pacific Domes, which is an awesome company that’s been around for a while - visit that site for lots of eye candy and inspiration. Pretty cool, huh?

EMBT Housing, Barcelona
Catriona Potts in CONTINUITY IN ARCHITECTURE
Yesterday, 12:03 PM
The slightly warped orthogonal form of the housing next to the Santa Caterina market contrasts strongly with the flowing roof canopy of the market building. The contextual deformations of the housing appear responsive and natural in the tight urban landscape. The walls are sheer and pale with an...

Biking for Development in Cambodia
Mara Hvistendahl in WorldChanging: Tools, Models and Ideas for Building a Bright Green Future
It started simply enough. In early 2005, Daniela Papi was finishing up a three-year stint as a English teacher in Japan and looking for a meaningful next step. She'd visited Cambodia a few years back and wanted to return. Her friend Greta Arnquist had volunteered there the summer before. The two decided they would bike across the country – and make a contribution along the way. Papi had experience with other “voluntourism” trips and knew it would be difficult to find a project that benefited locals as much as it did her and Arnquist.

Jetson Green: High Street, Philly
architecture.MNP
Previously we wrote about High Street Philadelphia, which is a super-green, mixed use community being developed by home(scale). They sent me some new renderings pictured above and below, and the hope is that they’ll be able to see this project to a reality. High Street is aiming for LEED Platinum certification, the highest designation bestowed by the USGBC, and will feature 51 carbon-neutral residential units, 3 commercial units, a cafe and organic grocery, and underground parking.

Prefab and Fabulous Housing Hits MoMA
The gothamist.com
Prefab housing isn't just for the..."thrifty" anymore! Yesterday Wired featured a selection of twelve modular, prefab housing units -- from lofts to place atop city skylines to 60 square-foot cabins with "cathedral ceilings". Today The NY Times reports that the idea has "become fashionable at architecture schools and among an upscale segment of the housing market." As such, MoMA has commissioned five architects to set up their prefab-ulous designs in their vacant lot on West 53rd St

Kuala Lumpur Flood Control System
admin in mirage.studio.7
While I was in Kuala Lumpur for the weekend prior to the wedding, I stumble upon a row of shop houses and their flood control system, probably they’ve given up on the local authorities and decided to take things their own way. Walking down the walkway is really annoying and dangerous, that could probably be the highest riser in the world and surprisingly senior citizens living there appear to be climbing up and down the stairs...

Vital Risk
Brendan in Where
The Ansari X Prize offered $10 million to whoever could pull off the first non-NASA manned space flight in the US. It worked, and Virgin (of Megastore fame) will soon be offering commercial space flights as a result. The X Prize's founder, Peter Diamandis, had this to say about his inspirational award in a recent post in GOOD Magazine's Big Ideas series: "The Ansari X Prize experiment worked, just like when Charles Lindbergh won the Orteig Prize for his transatlantic flight 80 years ago. We are genetically programmed to compete, and we do our best work, and take the highest risks when we go head-to-head for fame, fortune, or honor...X Prizes are one way to combat the risk-averse society that has developed over the last 40 years.

Parasol Progress?
John in A Daily Dose of Architecture
Back in April last year I posted progress photos of J. Mayer H.'s Metropol Parasol, a project I'd previously featured as a half dose in early 2006. The progress in a few short months was impressive, with poured concrete columns receiving a steel-strucutured slab raised from ground level apparently assembled on site. But six months after raising the slab into place, the progress seems, well, almost imperceptible. Sure, the cranes have been removed, and some bracing is in place, but that hardly seems like six months work. At this rate, the project will be many years before completion.

Marina City Curdles; Landmarks Commission Piddles
Lynn Becker in ArchitectureChicago PLUS
Nothing says Marina City better than rows of garage doors and bricked up facades. No? Well, that's exactly what LaSalle Hotel Properties had in mind for its newest Marina City tenant, Dick's Last Resort. Read about the trashing of architect Bertrand Goldberg's masterpiece, the exchange of letters between the condo association and the developer, and the silence of a Chicago Landmarks Commission that seems more comfortable making lists of nice neighborhood firehouses than protecting the iconic buildings that have made Chicago architecture known and admired throughout the world

Building a new market in Vieux-Longueuil
Christopher DeWolf in Spacing Montreal
Most real estate developments don’t have their own blogs. The Marché du Vieux-Longueuil is different. Louis Voizard, its developer, is tracking its planning and eventual construction with frequent and unusually frank posts. Here’s his description of the project, which which would be built on the site of a former car dealership on St. Charles Street, the main drag in Longueuil’s old downtown...

Why Scale and Adaptability Matter, Even for Starchitects
Alex Steffen in WorldChanging: Tools, Models and Ideas for Building a Bright Green Future
The blogosphere is all atwitter with news of Norman Foster's latest project, Moscow's Crystal Island. Why? It's big. Really frickin' big, with a floor area of 2.5million square meters and a height of 450 meters. If completed, it may be the largest structure in the world. It's also a monstrosity. Not because it's ugly, though I think it is, but because it's ego ossified into structure. "Conceived as a self-contained city within a city," it not only denies its urban context completely, functioning as a sort of vertical suburb, it also completely precludes the kind intelligent adaptation and evolution that small-scale buildings in a complex urban fabric excel. Though it's touted as green, it's essentially the world's largest monument to obsolescence -- this monolith almost seems designed to preclude the possibility of intelligent re-use in later times.

Lawyer Makes Case For Interstate Neon
Brian Libby in Portland Architecture
In Sunday's Oregonian, an op-edby land use attorney Sandra Duffy makes a personal plea to save the threatened Crown Motel sign on Interstate and others like it. She also walks us through some successful and unsuccessful past efforts in Portland to save such neon gems. Growing up two blocks from Interstate in the Overlook neighborhood during the late 1950s, Duffy remembers how the neon Palm Motor Hotel sign, "complete with monkey and coconuts, was the landmark guiding Dad's turn in the neighborhood. Classmates with a summer birthday and whose parents had money to spare (mine did not) would rent a room for a birthday pool party there."

Alastair Heseltine: …a sculptor working with mixed media relating to the environment. Imagery is guided by the inherent nature of material and by construction systems evolved through mindful observation and play. I also draw from the full spectrum of routines and activities that support my practice: Design, craft production, farming and rural life.

 Human Body Heat to Heat Green Building in Sweden
Jorge in Inhabitat
What is the next frontier in renewable energy? People! And no, we don’t mean them being used as in soylent green, but rather, to use the energy generated from the movement of large numbers of pedestrians through an occupied space. We’ve already highlighted the use of pressure pads to generate electricity, but plans are now afoot to take the heat energy generated by a human being and use it to heat a building in Sweden.

Foster Goes BIG
architecture.MNP
I don’t really know what else to say, other than MY NINJAS, PLEASE! Lord Foster has been all over the place lately [especially our ‘ninja arithmetic‘ feature] - and while he has shown a skill for attracting high profile master planning projects, this one takes it. Welcome to the Crystal Island - a city within a city. Here’s some of the project description, from Foster + Partners: One of the world’s most ambitious building projects, Crystal Island has been granted preliminary planning permission in Moscow. Enclosed within a vast mega structure covering a total floor area of 2.5million square metres – the project’s scale is unprecedented. At 450m the scheme in one of the tallest structures on the planet, creating a spectacular new emblem on the Moscow skyline. Conceived as a self-contained city within a city, it contains a rich mix of buildings including museums, theatres and cinemas, to ensure that it is a major new destination for the whole of Moscow.
