Mercat De La Salut Square in Badalona, Spain by vora arquitectura

Wednesday, February 16th, 2011

The project for the “La Salut” Market Square emerged from a study of the context: the topography, the architecture… but also from the memory, the collective imagery… a process of observation and analysis, which generates some abstract ideas that make a form, a distribution, some spatial relationships, a way of living and working… and bring us to the materiality of this intervention, materiality understood as the superimposition of identities, underlying realities and permanent memory.

Catamount house in Colorado Springs by Indie Architecture

Wednesday, February 16th, 2011

This house is a contemporary version of an Earthship, an ecologically benign house type popularized in the 1970s by Mike Reynolds, founder of Earthship Biotecture. The original Earthships were bermed into the ground to take advantage of the soil’s thermal mass, had relatively thin plans with extensive glazing on the south facing facade, walls made of old tires filled with dirt, PVs, and food gardens just inside the windows. They were intended to be self-sustaining living units, free of cities and their heavy infrastructure.
