Residence Addition in Provincetown, MA by Hammer Architects

Tuesday, November 5th, 2013

Article source: Hammer Architects

Located at the end of a shell-paved lane near Provincetown’s center, this comprehensive reconstruction of an 1820’s Colonial house with later additions, created a three-bedroom residence with a landscaped courtyard in a previously unused back yard. Great care was taken to blend the new construction with the scale and historic character of the surrounding homes.

MCDhouse in Texas by Adia

Tuesday, November 5th, 2013

Article source: Adia

Story: How a 22-year-old architecture student turned scraps into a sustainable paradise for a family in need.

The MCDhouse was built in cooperation with the Sustainable Builders’ Guild of Huntsville (Texas) as part of a local initiative to increase earth consciousness while providing homes for low-income families. Built to the minimum square footage allowed by law (for three residents), the house challenges the “hermetically-sealed box” mentality and sets out to prove that large enclosed homes are not necessary for comfort, functionality, and dignity.

WCU’s Health & Human Science Building is the first facility constructed as a part of the University’s Millennial Initiative, setting both aesthetic and planning directions for the new 344-acre campus. The facility provides state-of-the-art learning environments for five departments and nine disciplines within the College. Nested into the mountainside, without immediate built context or relationship to the existing campus, the design is a direct response to both site and program.

AIDS MEMORIAL PARK in NYC by Walzworkinc and d’arc.studio

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013

Article source: Walzworkinc and d’arc.studio

The scars left from the devastation of AIDS on New York City are not visible. No buildings were downed from the attack of AIDS. Instead there are thousands of small holes where people’s lives were cut short. In fact there are over a hundred thousand of them throughout the city of New York. Also there are the millions of holes in the hearts and memories of those that survived them, the family members, friends, neighbors, and communities, those that nursed them, and the courageous activists who refused to allow the suffering and loss to be swept under a rug, who demanded attention, gave support and initiated action.
