Ten Books For Architects - #10 The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell


I don't think there' exists a more challenging pursuit than to learn how to be a good designer. One of the frustrations that I had starting out in the profession was that it didn't seem that anyone could talk about architecture directly, my professors and mentors always had to use some kind of metaphor to explain the design process. I remember many late nights in…

Situated on the former location of Aldgate in London, the challenge of this garden was to create a secluded green space while still allowing unhindered pedestrian movement through the site. Haptic's solution was to create a "floating" garden elevated above the busy… Continue

The Miami Pier Museum of Latin American Immigrants has, beyond its massive formal drama, the effect of focusing ones attention to where the immigrants came from, which causes reflection on a long and arduous journey.

Prefabricated Nature

I have become more and more interested in prefabricated architecture over the years.

This house by MYCC was built in three months, but assembled on site in three days. On a practical level, you consider the cost and headache saved in having such a controlled…
