House PS in Even Yehuda, Israel by TheHeder Partnership

Saturday, February 26th, 2011

House PS is the result of an ongoing investigation of the courtyard house typology with all its Mediterranean connotations of climate, shade and intimacy. In this house, the courtyard is designed in section rather than in plan. Placed above the lower ground floor and below the bedrooms of the upper floor, the courtyard is shaded from the hot summer sun. This central, shaded exterior room is a natural extension of the interior spaces of the house.

Harvest City, Republic of Haiti by Kevin Schopfer

Friday, February 25th, 2011

Since the tragic earthquake of 2010, Haiti has been the subject of worldwide attention.  All would agree, the devastation seems particularly cruel to this struggling country.  Massive relief efforts have been forthcoming and have demonstrated considerable generosity and determination from individuals, organizations and countries.  For Haiti to stabilize, this effort will require a consistent long term commitment.  There is no one solution to solve all of Haiti’s problems.  Rather it will take a thoughtful program of balance and renewal.  In the most simplistic terms, much attention has been focused of establishing basic ingredient for recovery.

  1. Redistribution of population
  2. Establish stable population zones
  3. Restructure agriculture /Fishing growth
  4. Generate new economic growth generators.
