Juried Competition to Be Sponsored by Pamphlet Architecture Print E-mail
Friday, 06 March 2009 03:00

pamphlet.jpg Founded in 1977 as an alternative to mainstream architectural publishing, Pamphlet Architecture provides a forum for architects and writers to present their ideas, theories and designs in modest, affordable booklets.  Pamphlet Architecture helped launch the careers of architects from Steven Holl and Lebbeus Woods to Zaha Hadid, and has had influence far exceeding the ad-hoc nature of these humble books.

Competition Theme: Investigations in Infrastructure


At a time of new government leadership committed to investing in the United States' infrastructure, architects, engineers, and artists should propose new directions for transportation, energy, and agriculture at a continental scale. In this spirit, no visionary dimension is too large, no inventive proposal too ambitious to consider. Projects designed for countries other than the United States should be generalized enough to be applicable.

The winner will receive a prize of $2,500 and the opportunity to have their manuscript published by Princeton Architectural Press as Pamphlet Architecture 30. The registration fee is $25 for students and $50 for professionals.

The global call for entries saw over 180 proposals from 39 countries with a wide approach to the suggested general theme: how architecture can better meet the needs of communities undergoing social and environmental stress. The successful teams include researchers from Mexico, Australia, Colombia, France, China and the USA. They explore architecture from both standpoints of designer and user, in locations as diverse as Bogotá and Shanghai, the slums of Mexico City and the tsunami-torn villages of Aceh, Indonesia.

Two previous rounds of research grants focused on environmental and scientific themes, including green roofs and the performance of carbon-fiber composites. This year's grants represent a shift towards themes of architecture in society, as well as a significant expansion of the program.

3XN - Randers Museum of Art Print E-mail
Friday, 20 February 2009 04:34

The new Randers Museum of Art in Denmark will be a building both extrovert and introvert in nature; with reinterpreted classic Danish roots.3XN_randers_museum_of_art_01.jpg

In itself a sculpture sitting in a sculpture garden, the new Randers Museum of Art will be a transition point between town and landscape, art and nature. Opening up at one end towards the town – and at the other towards the landscape; the Museum will merge these two concepts through the experience of the works of art within it.
