Text description provided by the architects. This 100 m2 Loft with structure and apparent installations is located in the noble neighborhood of Morumbi, in São Paulo. Although the aesthetic appeal of New York sheds converted into housing in the 1970s is the main justification for the male audience in explaining their desire for this style of property, Diego Revollo, who is knowledgeable about this repertoire and with some other lofts in his portfolio, knows that this profile prioritizes good materials and functionality.

ASLA releases statement on the IPCC Climate Change Report

2 days 12 hours ago

ASLA has recently released a statement from Nancy Somerville, Hon. ASLA, executive vice president and CEO of the American Society of Landscape Architects, in the wake of the report, released October 8 by the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change:

“Already, the dire effects of climate change are visible in every corner of the globe. But the startling new report of the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change makes clear that if significant actions aren’t taken immediately, the world could see a rise in atmospheric temperatures of 1.5 degrees Celsius by 2040, triggering catastrophic effects worldwide. Landscape architects work at the intersection of the built and natural environments and have embraced their responsibility to design and plan healthy, climate-smart and resilient communities. The ominous U.N. report further reinforces the need for all those responsible for shaping human environments to urgently redouble their efforts to both mitigate climate effects and to ensure the resilience of communities already being threatened by the consequences of inaction.”

American Society of Landscape Architects also released a report earlier in 2018 entitled Smart Policies for a Changing Climate [pdf], spells out design and planning solutions, as well as public policies, that can help engender resilient and climate-smart communities and can be downloaded here [pdf].

The post ASLA releases statement on the IPCC Climate Change Report appeared first on World Landscape Architecture.

Book Review | Codify: Parametric and Computational Design in Landscape Architecture

2 days 12 hours ago

Codify: Parametric and Computational Design in Landscape Architecture edited by Bradley Cantrell and Adam Mekies provides a series of essays that explore what it means to use, modify and create computational tools in a contemporary design environment.

Cantrell and Mekies in their first chapter,  Coding landscape provide a brief history of the landscape architecture professions relationship with technology including the early adaptation by Design Workshop and the following decades of the profession engaging with GIS, geo-design, mobile data, then moving into the current era of Sidewalk Labs and developing a future vision for urban planning. From the outset, the discussion of analog (hand) and the digital representation is seen as been unproductive as “..neither methodology, analog or digital defines the discipline of landscape architecture.” Cantrel and Mekies continue by stating that computation provides more opportunities and new modes of thinking to expand the design tools, workflows and methodologies of landscape architecture.
