Morphosis’s Emerson College Los Angeles Building set to open in March

Morphosis’s Emerson College Los Angeles Building set to open in March | architecture design | Scoop.it
The project gives the Boston-based communications and arts school a permanent home on the west coast.

The 10-story, $85 million project will accommodate 217 students in suite-style housing located in the two vertical towers. These living spaces flank the academic and administrative core, which include classrooms, a state-of-the-art digital screening room, a lecture hall with distance-learning capabilities, performance spaces, editing suites, and more. 

Designed by architect Thom Mayne of Morphosis, the dynamic, aluminum-clad structure—really a self-contained campus—stands poised to become a symbol of its rapidly changing neighborhood.

Technological innovations echo the school’s own zeitgeist. Among the building’s energy-saving systems are exterior louvers that open or close automatically in response to the weather and the sun’s intensity. And two intriguing metal scrims, made from 17 different aluminum shapes that were digitally generated and manufactured, shade the interior faces of the residential towers.

Sustainability will progress  if  embedded  in universities and school programs... as mentioned earlier in the article on Business Schools ( Sce : Guardian)

What a great experience to be able to live a few years in a sustainable building, if  occupants promote simultaneously  green behaviours.

I found this project really amazing!

The Floating House by MOS Architects

The Floating House by MOS Architects | architecture design | Scoop.it

The Floating House is the intersection of a vernacular house typology with the shifting site-specific conditions of this unique place: an island on Lake Huron. The location on the Great Lakes imposed complexities to the house’s fabrication and construction, as well as its relationship to site.

Annual cyclical change related to the change of seasons, compounded with escalating global environmental trends , cause Lake Huron’s water levels to vary drastically from month-to-month, year-to-year. To adapt to this constant, dynamic change, the house floats atop a structure of steel pontoons, allowing it to fluctuate along with the lake.

Starks designs are always so simple and elegant, but the character of these desks is so engaging. I can see why kids would want to do homework there.

Vielleicht ein paar hilfreiche Übungen für die nächtlichen Stunden. In der Regel ist es aber deutlich besser, einem versierten Fachmann/Fachfrau die gestalterischen Aufgaben zu überlassen. Allein das Wissen um die Bedienung eines Tools macht noch keinen Fachmann ;-).

Adobe Illustrator will be quite useful for every progressive teacher. Spend some time now to feel confident and free in expressing your own ideas in the future

Bruno Latour: Compositionism as a replacement of critique.

Bruno Latour: Compositionism as a replacement of critique. | architecture design | Scoop.it

‘I have chosen to give this manifesto a worthy banner, the word compositionism. Yes, I would like to be able to write “The Compositionist Manifesto” by reverting to an outmoded genre in the grand style of old, beginning with something like: “A specter haunts not only Europe but the world: that of compositionism. All the Powers of the Modernist World have entered into a holy alliance to exorcise this specter!”

scarlettarch's insight:

Interesting conclusion..."It has long been realized by science studies, by feminist theory, and, in a much wider way, by all sorts of environmental movements, that this era’s character was precisely not the long-awaited taking into account of nature, but rather the total dissolution of the various notions of nature. In brief, ecology seals the end of nature.”
