The housing lessons that London can learn from Paris | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Does bad city planning and ugly architecture help cultivate terrorism? In his 1995 film La Haine (Hate), director Mathieu Kassovitz brilliantly captured the despair endemic to the Modernist suburbs of Paris, the grim banlieues beyond the orbital Boulevard Périphérique on whose sink estates unemployment is sky high and hope is in the basement.

This 3D Printer Can Build 10 Houses a Day for $5,000 Each

This 3D Printer Can Build 10 Houses a Day for $5,000 Each | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The days of lengthy, inefficient, and costly construction projects could be coming to an end. Private inventor Ma Yihe designed a 3D printer that built ten houses in a single day! The china based company building and research center are all constructed of 3D printed walls. The building walls are energy efficient and made of recycled construction waste and mortar. The roofs still have to be applied by hand because the printers aren’t yet versatile enough to manage the complete task.

Occupy Architecture: Scapegoat's Activist Vision of Design as Political Endeavor

Occupy Architecture: Scapegoat's Activist Vision of Design as Political Endeavor | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Scapegoat is an independent journal focusing on the relationship between architecture, landscape architecture, and political economy. A group of eight practicing architects, landscape architects, and graphic designers developed the idea for the publication in 2009, driven by a dissatisfaction with the politics — or lack thereof — in their design fields. In order to reconcile their practice and political beliefs, they created Scapegoat to serve as a venue for affirmative critique, seeking, as they explain, to “avoid a false dichotomy of completely negative criticism, on the one hand, and completely positive boosterism, on the other, to search for and create alternatives to capitalist design practice.”

Re-thinking architecture - MIT News | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Goulthorpe says that the result would be resilient, durable, and high performance buildings, essentially pre-fabricated and customizable due to the CAD-CAM protocols. Everything could be assembled by semi-skilled labor with little heavy machinery, yet perform as primary structure without additional framing. “Our aim is to introduce a viable new building technology that might take hold and have a broad influence in updating the building industry into the digital age,” he says. “It would be a revolution in material and fabrication logic: thin-skin structural envelopes cut accurately and effortlessly by agile robots or CNC machines.”
