Tuesday, July 30th, 2013

This design is in response to the growing need to repair and upgrade aging infrastructure that is vital to the United States.  America’s Hi-Speed Rail network, originally built during the 20th century, has become physically outdated and technologically obsolete.  Therefore, our approach is to not only bring these elements up to modern standards, but to look forward to the promise of future possibilities, and communicate this architecturally.

Saturday, July 27th, 2013

Article source: GrizForm Design Architects

Farmers Fishers Bakers, a 9,700­ square­-foot restaurant in Washington, DC, is an original and creative restaurant venue that seamlessly combines form, function, and creativity. The space formerly housed Farmers & Fishers, a restaurant ruined after the Potomac River in Washington, DC flooded the space. The owners called on a local DC­based architecture and interior design firm to re-imagine the restaurant as one with a farm theme full of folk­like touches and unusual materials with an emphasis on custom design.

Bordered by the track on three sides, the 27-acre Grand Plaza lies at the heart of the Circuit of the Americas and defines the public experience for most visitors to the new motorsports and entertainment venue. The 3.4-mile racetrack coils around the Grand Plaza and springs out to the east and west, making it the perfect location not only to watch the action of the race unfold, but also to enjoy the amenities contained within. Ideally situated to capture the energy and atmosphere of the Circuit of the Americas, the Grand Plaza will serve as Central Texas’ new home for outdoor entertainment.

“Yona on the Beach” in Rockaway, New York by Stephen Yablon Architect

Saturday, July 20th, 2013

Article source: Stephen Yablon Architect

In response to the MoMA PS1 Rockaway Call for Ideas, Stephen Yablon Architect’s “Yona on the Beach,” which was one of the selected entries, accepts the inherent and increasingly dynamic weather conditions of barrier islands. SYA’s idea is a new model for barrier island settlements; entire beach neighborhoods are raised high above the 100 year flood plain so that the barrier island below can naturally shift and change during storms with minimal impact to human habitation.
