Towards south the view to the sea and islands, towards north the characteristic triangular mountain, towards east the glacier and towards west the river and canyon.

A New Norris House by University of Tennessee

Sunday, September 18th, 2011

Article source: University of Tennessee

In 1933 the Tennessee Valley Authority constructed a model community, Norris, Tennessee, as part of the Norris Dam construction project. A key feature of this New Deal village was the Norris House, a series of homes built as models for modern and efficient living. In light of the 75th anniversary of the Norris Project, an evolving interdisciplinary team of UT students and faculty are reinterpreting the Norris paradigm and creating a New Norris House – a sustainable home designed for the 21st century. In 2009 the New Norris House was one of six winners nationally of the Environmental Protection Agency’s People Prosperity and the Planet (P3) Competition. It offers a replicable model for contemporary sustainable living that holds the promise of significant benefit across East Tennessee.

Tornado Proof House by 10 Design

Sunday, September 18th, 2011

Article source: 10 Design

Isn’t the Wizard of Oz a clear example of the awesome force that a tornado can muster? How can Jaws drive people out of the ocean screaming when a house blown through the sky brings back nostalgic memories? Please stay out of the water… but feel free to build your home below flood level and out of cards in the wind. There is an urgent need to shift from an outmoded logic, ignorant of the forces of nature, to a point where the unabashed rush for profit and development can be balanced against the basic goal of providing shelter. Humanity is inexplicably driven to build in places where it should not-accepting the unavoidability of this folly is the first step to breathing in a new vision. We sought a way of turning the seemingly destructive acts of nature into creative blooms.

ARTIC Mass-Painting in Anaheim, California by Emergent Tom Wiscombe

Sunday, September 18th, 2011

Article source: Tom Wiscombe

This proposal is based on creating a complex visual oscillation between two and three dimensional realms. Somewhere between the disciplines of sculpture and painting, the piece registers as a mass but also as a graphic. Loopy, spotted patterns flow over manifold surfaces, simultaneously dissolving the mass and re-establishing it. Transparent zones allow people to view deep inside the object, their gaze pulled into involutions in interior surfaces. They can see the inside of the mass-painting.

Jøssingfjord Museum in Norway by Superunion Architects + Powerhouse Company

Sunday, September 18th, 2011

Article source: Superunion Architects

Architecture begins where the pure necessity of the need for a shelter ends. The ability of man to command nature and use it as a protection against itself is the very beginning of civilization. The caves of Jøssingfjordas well as it’s hydro power station are in that sense two monuments for Norwegian innovation and civilization: to shelter within the mass, to reap from natures power.

The Technical Faculty in SDU, Odense, Denmark by C. F. Møller Architects

Sunday, September 18th, 2011

Article source: C. F. Møller Architects


The Technical Faculty is part of the University of Southern Denmark in Odense, and constitutes a shared research and education environment for four different institutes. The building is designed as one big envelope consisting of 5 houses connected by bridges at multiple levels crossing the heart of the house, a “piece of furniture” containing common functions and meeting-rooms, and giving access to a roof garden/café/lounge area. The many connections allow for more fluid boundaries, and more community and knowledge sharing.

Kaminoge House in Tokyo, Japan by Naoya Kawabe Architect & Associates

Sunday, September 18th, 2011

Article source: Naoya Kawabe Architect & Associates

A moderate distance is kept outside by assuming the tenement house form. I thought that an independent approach to each unit is connected at the outside environment with planting and the chance to touch. In addition, the tenement house was not made overbearing an one volume. We were made in the south-north through by using “Division” and “Gap”. It is tried to take the outside environment indoors by apply the daylight and ventilation from the window opened to the best position.
