Framebench: The Online Tool Making INSTANT “Visual Collaboration” Seamless | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Framebench, an online tool for visual collaboration, seeks to alleviate the digital sharing problems architects and designers commonly face in practice. Aiming to do away with file storage systems, FTP clients and other kinds of complex software, this web application allows for teams and individuals to share, discuss and annotate drawings in real time. Framebench suggest that “this could be the online space where you can organize all your drafts and finals, get feedback and approve the work that’s finished” – in realtime.

TRYING to answer the question of why architecture schools remain such mentally and physically draining places to study

TRYING to answer the question of why architecture schools remain such mentally and physically draining places to study | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

When trying to answer the question of why architecture schools remain such mentally and physically draining places to study, this apathetic attitude towards faculty is an important factor to consider. When students feel disconnected from the communities they are supposed to be a part of, they may be even more hesitant to speak up.


Moreover, in order to keep up with the stressful and demanding workload, survey respondents confessed to having developed many bad habits. The majority of students admitted to regularly pulling all-nighters, skipping meals, forgoing extracurricular social activities, and rarely exercising in order to finish projects on time. Bad habits are formed when a specific behavior results in a favorable outcome, leading to the conditioned repetition of these actions. In these cases, the positive reinforcement comes in the form of producing a better project on time, which evidently outweighs the adverse affects on mental and physical health these behaviors also produce for respondents.


While the study does not suggest a reason for why students would choose the positive over the negative, the choice could be a product of the environment. When we see our peers acting a certain way and perceive it as the norm, we feel justified perpetuating the behavior. This is especially magnified in architecture school as students tend to do most of their work in the infamous studio, constantly surrounded by their peers.

Imagine if changes were implemented to remedy all of the issues regarding infrastructure, amenities, and communication. Would students continue to raise the bar, maintaining their bad habits to produce even better work? Or would they finally have the time to lead more balanced and healthy lifestyles? Even if the tangible problems were completely resolved, is it simply impossible to change today’s architecture school culture?

Richard Serra has been awarded the President's Medal from the Architectural League of New York, the first time the prize has been given to an artist.


The medal recognizes a body of work in architecture, urbanism, art or design. Mr. Serra’s art “engages the senses in terms of scale, space, volume, and materiality in a way that is inevitably fascinating for every architect,” said the architect Annabelle Selldorf, the league president, in a statement.

The allure of writing in solitude gets a lift in Blank Studio's new House of Writing, a suspended cabin offered to the lucky scribe who snags a Jan Michalski Foundation residency at the Swiss Maison de l'Echiture. Alpine ranges make a swell view from the hanging structure, which dangles delicately below a concrete canopy and preexisting sea of columns. Basic domestic spaces occupy the "ground"-level entry (we envision many coffee breaks in the darkened-birch and oak-clad kitchen and dining room). From there, a central stair leads to a bedroom and the main attraction: a writing office.

[ARCHITECTURE porte à FAUX] Shenzhen 4 Tower in 1 Competition, Architect, CBD district, Shenzhen 4 in 1 Towers | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Many recent Central Business’ Districts (CBD) consist of series of more or less straightforward office towers without much coherence, each of them celebrating individuality over the collective. These developments are leading to very similar CBD’s. Is this desirable? Or can we find a way to combine individuality with more collective urban qualities? Can there be a more distinguishing character, with a stronger appearance, attracting people from far, to become outstanding over other competitors? Can the momentum of the coincidental simultaneous development of four new towers in the CBD district of Shenzhen help to develop a more coherent and specific high quality environment?

Heatherwick Tapped to Design “Sunken Oasis” in Abu Dhabi

Heatherwick Tapped to Design “Sunken Oasis” in Abu Dhabi | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Thomas Heatherwick has been commissioned to transform a 125,000 square meter park in the heart of Abu Dhabi into a multifunctional “sunken oasis.” Inspired by “fractured desert crust,” the park is designed as a series of fragmented canopies that rise to form a three-dimensional landscape across the site. Beneath the cracked surface will be a series of interconnected public spaces cooled by lush vegetation that provide organic produce to local restaurants and space for community gardens.


Once complete in 2017, the “Al Fayah Park” will host a plethora of activities. The twenty meter high shaded garden is envisioned as “a place for families to gather and picnic, as well as a place for learning and festivals.” Visitors will find cafés, play spaces, a library, mosque, pools and streams, as well as indoor and outdoor arenas for live performances and local festivities.

When an eminent jurist asks, “What does a copyright of an architectural work truly protect?” you may be certain the question is not rhetorical. The U.S. Copyright Act does provide protection from infringement for architectural works, but it does so in terms so ambiguous that a judge might wonder, as did federal district court judge James Lawrence King in a case he decided earlier this year, whether broadly applicable standards for determining infringement even exist. Finding “the usual analysis … too vague and the language misleading,” King blazed a trail of his own in Sieger Suarez Architectural Partnership v. Arquitectonica International Inc., 2014 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 19140, proposing detailed guideposts for future courts to follow.


Sieger Suarez involved two Miami architectural firms and a 43-story condominium tower nearing completion in suburban Sunny Isles. The Sieger Suarez firm was engaged in 2000 by the project’s first owner. When the project, now known as Regalia, changed hands, the new owners dropped Sieger Suarez and engaged Arquitectonica in 2006. This is a scenario made familiar in scores of disputes involving allegations of infringement of architectural works.
