Maine Cottage, Local + Quality = Green
Sarah Roe in JETSONGREEN.COM
Maine Cottage is a Maine-based furniture company specializing in colorful, fun furniture.  The company, which did not start out as an environment focused company, is actually quite green.  90% of their products are made by artisans in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and North Carolina.  Of course, local production means less travel and fewer harmful emissions. The majority of their furniture is delivered to you home by vans, which means they aren't using a bunch of packing materials that will land right in a dump. They primarily use maple and birch hardwoods, which are naturally regenerative species harvested from Northern temperate forests.  Their "Maine Barn Tables" are made of reclaimed barn lumber.  They chose to use water-borne paints 15 years ago because it was more healthy for the earth and their workers.

photo du jour 24.03.208
ArchitectureMNP
I received these photos of Holl’s Linked Hybrid, currently under construction, as part of the AIA NY Awards 2008 press release email and couldn’t help but toss them on the page. I can’t say how they’ll turn out in the end - but they’d sure as hell make for a great movie set, some kind of near-future post-apocalyptic thriller maybe…

Sneak Peak Inside Libeskind's New Jewish Museum
jimmy in Life Without Buildings
Over at Curbed SF this week, a sneak peek into the recently finished Contemporary Jewish Museum. Designed by Daniel Libeskind, the museum doesn't officially open until this summer so there were no crowds or installations to detract from the space. Whether or not that's a good thing is subjective, but this CJM is thankfully one of the more...shall we say "retrained" Libeskind designs. For more info, check out the Plans, Photos, and earlier construction shots. [image courtesy of the Contemporary...

Revolutionary Super-Insulating Vacuum Glass!
Mike Chino in Inhabitat
Researchers at Guardian Industries have recently unveiled a new breed of vacuum-glazed super glass with an incredible R12-R13 insulation rating. For those of you who know nothing about R-value (the standard construction measurement of how insulating a material is), this is an incredible insulation value for glass. Typical insulation brick and plaster walls usually have an R12 rating, and glass usually gets a R1 or R2. That means this new vacuum glass is as insulative as a thick insulated wall. Using the same principle as a vacuum thermos bottle, these glass panels essentially negate two principal modes of heat transfer, paving the way towards windows that actually supply thermal energy instead of leaking it.

Norman Foster’s Almaty Twin Towers in Kazakhstan
Karim Yergaliyev in Inhabitat
World-renowned architect Sir Norman Foster seems to be making a lot of friends in the former Soviet Union, with news of new Foster design proposals in Russia and Central Asia being approved almost every month. Kazakhstan’s capital city Astana already features two Foster designed marvels: a stunning Palace of Peace and Reconciliation pyramid structure and another tent-like development called Khan Shatyry Entertainment Centre soon to be completed late next year. Now, if plans are approved, Kazakhstan will soon see the development of two gigantic twin towers in Almaty, thanks to the iconic British architect.

Sitting Chairs
sabine7 in MoCo Loco
Sitting Chairs by Lucas Maassen is part of the Design and the Elastic Mind Exhibition at MoMA that explores the huge changes in technology, science and social mores and the design world’s ability to adapt and use these changes within new designs. Maassen’s “tableau vivant” of chairs that interact with each other and their setting stands as an example of how designers are choosing to work on groups of objects rather than stand alone pieces. The exhibition runs through May 12, but there is also a detailed on-line exhibition of a wide variety of designs as well.

Paint on Solar Power!
Jorge Chapa in Inhabitat
Installing solar panels on the roof of every new building in the world would go a long way towards solving our energy needs, but as we all know, solar panels are costly and often difficult to install. But what if the solar panel was an integral part of every building? What if solar cells could be painted on building products? Well, according to a team from Swansea University this type of technology will soon be coming to a hardware store near you.

Holl’s Hat Trick
ArchitectureMNP
Steven Holl has won three awards at the AIA NY 2008 Awards. Holl was awarded he Architecture Honor Award for his Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, and two Building Type Awards [one for education, one for sustainability] for his NYU Department of Philosophy project, and Linked Hybrid.
We are delighted to see that two of the themes that are most important to our designs of the past decades, sustainability and inspirational architecture for education, have been recognized by the AIA New York Chapter for their quality and creativity [Steven Holl].

Popular Architecture's Mile High Eco Tower [S2]
Preston D K in JETSONGREEN.COM
This is a concept tower by Popular Architecture envisioned for Tower Hamlets in East London.  The design is a reaction, at least in part, to sprawl issues.  London is expected to need housing for 100,000 new people per year until 2016, and currently, most of housing that's being built is low-density projects in commuter towns.  Popular Architecture's Super Tower could house up to about 100,000 people with a seriously low site requirement (considering the number of people within the structure).  The 1,500 meter tall tower would have about 500 floors.  You'd find floors or sections for needs such as a university, farmer's market, pubs, a town hall, sky gardens, etc.  Anything and everything would be in the building.  There's even a fire station on the 419th floor!  Which raises the question: what do you do if there is a fire above or below the 419th floor?

Brooklyn Modern
Harry in MoCo Loco
Spotted this one over at Cool Hunting where reviewer Doug Black says it best, "There hasn't been a period of such a fervent excitement about Brooklyn homes since the advent of the brownstone more than 150 years ago.". Brooklyn Modern looks at 18 recent renovations and all-new homes in this NYC borough increasingly well known for it's thriving art and design community. Of note, essays by Brooklyn design bloggers Grace Bonney of design*sponge and Jonathan Butler of Brownstoner, who "give perspective on new ways of living as aesthetics and landscape change". Hardcover, 226 pages, well illustrated, due in April, $29.70 at Amazon.

Rozelle House, a Contemporary Design Practice by Tom Ferguson
Mohammad Fahmi Tri Wahyudi,ST in Best House Design
This type of residential project "Rozelle House" that was designed by Tom Ferguson who lived in Australia and gives their best services in Residential Architecture. This "Rozelle House" project contributes to contemporary design practice by exhibiting both an awareness of contemporary interior design trends and a willingness to reject those trends if an alternate material, form or object

CS House, Cami Ral de Barcelona By AH Asociados
Mohammad Fahmi Tri Wahyudi,ST in Best House Design
This CS House that was designed by AH Asociados is located in an area dotted with residential buildings, Cami Ral de Barcelona, 36 - Sentmenat (Barcelona). The house has 613m2 build up area and cost 266,256 € for its construction. Building a house that creates an isolated world for its inhabitants requires a simple but determined execution. It has been necessary to make the most of the views.

Book Review: Renzo Piano Museums
John in A Daily Dose of Architecture
Renzo Piano Museums (2007) by Renzo Piano, with an essay by Victoria Newhouse Monacelli Press Hardcover, 214 pages
In a piece in Bloomberg News last month, critic James S. Russell laments Italian architect Renzo Piano's dominance of museum commissions in the United States. Citing timid museum trustees and an embrace of "architecture serving art" as reasons for this phenomenon, over the quality of Piano's output, which he sees as lacking in recent projects like the Morgan Library and LACMA, Piano nevertheless has a number of museum designs for the US either on the boards or underway. While I would agree that some of his recent designs do lack the clarity or quality of the Menil Collection or the Nasher Sculpture Center, they are still highly-skilled buildings that are better than the majority of what passes for architecture these days. While Russell's argument is pretty weak (are Piano's projects really so repetitive that one loses track of one's locale, be it Bonn or Boston?), his call for variety in museum architecture is warranted as is his plea for "museums [to] undertake a deep inquiry that combines an insightful designer with [the] museum."....

CO2 Architecture - Transport.
Christoph, anArchitecture in anArchitecture
Sustainable design is not only about energy efficient buildings: Designer should also think about whether they can change people's behavior towards the environment. Can architecture do that?Instead of driving to the office, consider cycling? Reducing the amount of business air travel? The emissions of one passenger on the outward flight from Vienna to Amsterdam creates the climate impact of about 270 kg CO 2( 540 kg CO 2including the return trip) (source: www.atmosfair.de). That’s almost a quarter of one year car driving (12000 km, middle class model). But who is willing to give up air travel? We definitely need to find acceptable and comfortable alternatives to our wastefulness!

Serero Architects Win Eiffel Tower Anniversary Competition
admin in mirage.studio.7
This is last week’s news and I find it rather interesting, Paris-based Serero Architects won an open competition for the redesign of Eiffel Tower’s public reception. The deck would be temporary bolted to the slab without any new support structure, thus expanding the usable floor area from 280m square to 580m square. According to the official announcement: Since its creation the amount of visitors coming to reach its top has increased to reach its limit capacity. 6.5 millions People wait between 35 minutes to 1H10 to reach the elevators. The floor area of each level decreases with the height because of the tower geometry resulting in very long waiting lines and crowd management problems.

First LEED Certified MLB Stadium [Nationals]
Preston D K in JETSONGREEN.COM
HOK and Devrouax +Purnell teamed up to design what could be the first LEED certified Major League Baseball stadium around.*  As the new home of the Washington Nationals, the stadium has a slew of green features such as high-efficiency field lighting, a 6300 sf green roof, a state-of-the-art wastewater system that uses sand filters, and an in-house recycling center.  Originally, architects estimated an extra cost of $10-20 million for certification, but it ended up being only $2 million.  Plus, the up-front costs are expected to be returned in lower operating costs.  For a frame of reference, thought, the owners agreed to spend $611 million for the stadium.

Kamin Blogs; Casts Aqua a Valentine
Lynn Becker in ArchitectureChicago PLUS
"Everybody wants to get into the act!", Jimmy Durante used to fume, and now you can add Chicago Tribune architecture critic Blair Kamin to that number. He has a new blog, The Skyline, (not to be confused with Philadelphia Inquirer's Inga Saffron's Changing Skyline). He's been posting items since Mid-March. A lot of the content is simply a republication of his own print columns and references to the work of other Trib writers on architecture and development issues, but there's a great call out to a crackerjack profile, complete with audio, from the Yale Alumni Magazine (Kamin's alma mater, as he's wont to remind you) ...

Designer Eco-Reserve in the Cotswolds, England
Cate Trotter in Inhabitat
The English Cotswolds are well-known around the world for being a place of picturesque natural beauty, and now this tourist-favorite is about to become home to stunning architectural beauty as well, with the development of Lower Mill Estate, a collection of modern eco-homes. Lower Mill Estate in Gloucestershire, England is a development of luxury waterside eco-homes featuring Britain’s biggest collection of architect-designed modern homes. Custom designs by over 22 architects, including Richard Reid, Will Alsop and Sarah Featherstone, 48 houses combine with a beautiful natural setting to create a unique living experience that is connected to nature.

werner sobek’s r128 house
Justin in materialicious
From ArchitectureWeek: The glass-and-steel R128 House is located on a steeply sloped site with panoramic views of Stuttgart, Germany. Although this house seems sterile and completely transparent, it is a home where comfort and privacy issues for the inhabitants have been met. It is a completely recyclable, emission-free, energy self-sufficient building.
The house has no interior doors, switches, or interior walls. All appliances and environmental systems are controlled by motion sensors and voice commands, while aluminum ceiling panels hide the lighting fixtures and air vents. Electric power comes from the solar photovoltaic panels on the roof.

THE FARM PROJECT by Mike Meiré for Dornbracht
Kate Andrews in Inhabitat
The sleek industrial contemporary kitchen is challenged in Mike Meiré’s The Farm Project - a brand imaging campaign for the German fixture manufacturer Dornbracht. This barn-like, “real-life” stage is charged with aromas, animals, plants and objects housed with an archetypal rural building with an outer cover made of patchwork materials. A beautiful exploration of design and living, The Farm Project shuns the “hidden” kitchen, enclosed in steel and stone, to connect people to that which sustains them.
