Gable Again House in Champaign, Illinois by Jeffery S. Poss, Architect

Saturday, February 15th, 2014

Article source: Jeffery S. Poss, Architect

A well-proportioned 1957 gabled house was constructed on the north edge of a small park.  While the southern view of maturing park trees visible through the glazed gable end is delightful, an owner of dubious taste in the 1970s constructed a curiously awful Mansard carbuncle-of-an-addition to its west.

ORCHID CIRCUS in MIAMI by LUIS PONS DESIGN LAB

Friday, February 14th, 2014

Article source: LUIS PONS DESIGN LAB

The design and creation of a whimsical and sophisticated environmental installation at the site of the entertainment venue Orchid.

PROGRAM

The installation is an extension of the performance. A “Garden of Pleasure” starts at the initial view of the gateway location and continues to the peripheral fence. It culminates in the areas surrounding the “spiegeltent” and welcomes spectators before and after each performance. Several factors are considered in the design of the environmental installation of the Orchid venue. The aesthetics of the traditional “spiegeltent”, the iconic fences of nomadic circuses, and the essence of the venue, located in the celebrated Miami Design District, all contribute to the elegant and innovative installation.

Food and Agriculture Pavilion in California by Michael Jantzen

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

Article source: Michael Jantzen

This pavilion proposal was created as a tourist attraction for the California Department of Food and Agriculture. Its design is intended to sustainably celebrate the great diversity, and the future of food production in the state of California.

The shape of the large concrete structure was based on a contour map of a California hill. Various food crops are planted in raised troughs that follow the contours of the perimeter of the hill. These plants are continually changed out in order to display the wide variety of crops actually grown on farms in California.
