Afin d’alerter sur la hausse des loyers et le manque de logements en Allemagne, un architecte militant élabore des maisons de 4 mètres carrés.
Arth' de Fingal's insight:

When the need of housing, living in center town and spare money bring to surprising (foolish?) innovations. For the non-french speaker the article explain that in Berlin they achieve to create a 4sqm mobile house where you should be able to decently live. (Still better than nothing)

TENDANCE • Rebondir dans la forêt | Architecture, home of innovation | Scoop.it
La quinzième édition du festival international Archstoyanie, dédié à l’architecture et l’espace, a donné lieu à une installation pleine de ressort.
Arth' de Fingal's insight:

Because architecture is not always about building and stuff but about a way to think the environment. This estonians wanted to mix fun and discovery of the nature and get a surprising result.

Of course we can doubt to see it on a lot of place, security matters and noise will probably bring a lot of barrers.

Arth' de Fingal's insight:

An archive document; conclusion from a rapport of the French government in 2007. They set up the first lines of the new orientations in terms of architecture and housing. Time for a look backward ?

(NB: We can also see that in 2007 French gvt was unable to justify his texts)

A-lab is working on a design proposal for an eco-cube for the UNION group. The cube will be a pilot project for A-lab’s eco-BIM technology.
Arth' de Fingal's insight:

Optimize space and insert green space inside a building is one of the big trend in architecture, here is a new shot. I like the idea of creating a social place ahead from several living places whithout any kind of interaction.

ARCHITECTURE • La noblesse retrouvée du bambou

ARCHITECTURE • La noblesse retrouvée du bambou | Architecture, home of innovation | Scoop.it
Une exposition indonésienne célèbre les mérites de cette graminée. Son intérêt n’est plus à démontrer pour de nombreux architectes.
Arth' de Fingal's insight:

Here it's about bamboo walls inspired by old construction techniques. Those are cheaper than brick and cement walls and will resist better to time and earthquakes.
