Text description provided by the architects. The house was designed for a young couple, newly married, who loves to host. She is an architect and her husband own a restaurant. The parti was to fully integrate the environments to increase amplitude, bringing an airy and well-lit space, since the old house was very small and segmented. An open kitchen and a garden were also designed, creating space to spend time with their friends.

En la próxima edición de BBConstrumat, que tendrá lugar en Barcelona entre el 14 y el 17 de mayo de 2019, se estrena un espacio dedicado a la oferta de servicios de los profesionales de arquitectura, ingeniería e interiorismo: The Professional Spot, iniciativa que ha recibido el apoyo de todos los colegios nacionales.

El objetivo es favorecer el encuentro y el conocimiento mutuo entre las empresas expositoras de productos y materiales con los arquitectos, ingenieros o interioristas, del que pueden surgir nuevas oportunidades de colaboración.

El área tendrá un impacto especial porque en esta edición todas las zonas comunes se han encargado al arquitecto Josep Ferrando que, en línea con su continuado análisis sobre las exigencias de los materiales, ya ha anunciado que los utilizados para esta instalación efímera van a intentar ser didácticos respecto a la manera de entender la construcción y van a tener un ciclo de vida mayor que los días que dura la feria.

A historic hotbed of architectural styles and a current architectural capital of the world, cities in the United Kingdom are awash with iconic buildings from the Georgian, Neoclassical, and contemporary era. Such buildings, from the Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol to the Southbank in London, have come to define the cities in which they stand, drawing the eyes of tourists and designers alike from around the world.

It is therefore an interesting exercise to examine what these cities would look like if such structures didn’t exist. To this end, Neomam Studios has partnered with QuickQuid to produce a series of images demonstrating what six British cities could have looked like, resurrecting some of Britain’s most surprising unbuilt structures.

This extract was originally published on Common Edge as "The Legacy of Christopher Alexander: Criteria for an Intelligent Architecture."

In his monumental four-volume book, The Nature of Order, Christopher Alexander talks about an intelligent architecture, responsive to human needs and sensibilities through adaptation to existing buildings and nature. This is a new way of viewing the world—a way of connecting to it, and to ourselves—yet it is very much the same as the most ancient ways of connecting.

Peter Barber's Adventurously Eccentric London Architecture

6 days 3 hours ago

London architecture today, for all the big-hitters that dominate the headlines (Foster, Rogers, Heatherwick), finds its richness in small studios. Peter Barber leads one such studio, where for the past 30 years he has led the development of some of the city’s most sensitive housing and housing developments.

Among these are McGrath Road, a small development in Stratford, East London that reworks the traditional back-to-back housing model for a local council. The typology, prominent in the 19th century but unpopular in later years due to its lack of a garden, is a perfect fit for senior housing. In Barber’s scheme, the tightly packed homes are gathered around a shared courtyard, allowing residents to move smoothly between public and private space in the development.

The International VELUX Award 2018 sought to highlight the work of architecture students around the globe who challenge the use of daylight in built environments. The award, titled “Light of Tomorrow,” was launched in 2004 and is awarded biennially for creative interpretation, exploration, and investigation of daylight in built environments. This year, the winners were selected from over 600 submissions.

The project winner in the category of “Daylight in Buildings” studied the traditional construction of contemporary buildings, their geometries, and their window placement to isolate the limitations of these contractions and propose new methods of building that maximize the natural light penetration and shadow play. The submission, titled “Light Forms Juggler,” is by Anastasia Maslova from Kazan State University of Architecture and Engineering in Russia.
