The Maggie’s Centre Barts, designed by Steven Holl Architects in partnership with @jmarchitects, celebrates its opening today. Maggie’s Barts, sited in central London, will provide free practical and emotional support for people living with cancer and their family and friends.

A three-story “urban townhouse,” the new Centre has been designed to be full of open space and light. The exterior works in harmony with the interior, allowing natural light to wash over the floors and walls, ever changing through the natural daylight pattern of the seasons. The building is envisioned as a “vessel within a vessel within a vessel.” The structure is a branching concrete frame, the inner layer is bamboo and the outer layer is matte white glass. The exterior glass with colored glass fragments is organized in horizontal bands like a musical staff, recalling “neume notation” of Medieval music of the 13th century (the word neume originates from the Greek pnevma, which means “vital force.” It suggests a “breath of life” that fills oneself with inspiration like a stream of air, the blowing of the wind). The new type of polychrome insulating glass was developed especially for the Centre in close collaboration with @okaluxna | @maggiescentres @st_bartholomews_hospital @nhsbartshealth #maggiescentrebarts #maggiescentres #okalux #insulatingglass #stbartholomews #westsmithfield #londonarchitecture #iwanbaan #jmarchitects #stevenholl #stevenhollarchitects

London population density infographic; part of the urban data research presented at the ‘Walkable London’ exhibition at the @NLALondon Galleries until 29 Jan 2018. “Walkable London” proposes a network of pedestrian routes creating corridors across the capital that will significantly reduce congestion and pollution, while also enhancing safety and public health. 
To make walking part of our daily routine, London needs a pedestrian network as an integral part of the city’s transport infrastructure. The UK capital has seen some great examples of pedestrianisation that has revitalised the individual districts. "Walkable London" initiates and presents a tangible strategy to connect these disparate pedestrianised zones. 
Working with @HBD_chronotope, ZHA is applying urban data across the urban planning, design and architecture fields. Walkable London highlights the potential for new methods to explore and interpret the effects of design decisions on all aspects of urban life. 
Urban data produced via digital devices presents an opportunity to discover new insights through intelligent processing and intuitive visualization of unstructured records. 
Pedestrianising the city is not only about walkability; it is also about the local and city-wide socio-economic structure. Walkable London includes the first stage of the analysis — a city-wide study of the interconnections between pedestrianisation and socio-economic trends. 
Walkable London presents aggregate open data on pedestrianisation rates, commercial development and human activity.

100 Buildings; 1900–2000 (Rizzoli, 2017), a new book with text by architecture's Associate Professor Val Warke, profiles the top 100 buildings of the 20th century as identified by leading architects and teachers of the discipline. "What I found most fascinating," says Warke, "and what drew me to the project — besides Thom's enthusiasm — is the surprising degree of consensus among these quite dissimilar architects regarding the buildings in their lists. So, the problem in writing short texts on each of the buildings was to balance basic descriptions with speculation as to why these buildings may have been so broadly considered important. The individual lists, along with a matrix illustrating the common choices, form the second part of the text."

  • IT’S AN ULTRA-VIOLET WORLD
🐝🔮💥 “Complex” doesn’t begin to describe it. We’re wrestling with an administration that wants to reverse decades of progress in civil rights, economic justice, environmentalism, and more. We’re confronting the ugly truths about gender inequality and abuse. But just as fast as some forces are yanking us into the past, we’re careening even more rapidly into the future thanks to powerful innovations in biotechnology, artificial intelligence, and blockchain technology.

Purple, of all the colors in the spectrum, embodies this situation best, as Pantone explains. “[Ultra Violet] is a very provocative shade, but it’s also a thoughtful color–it sounds like a bit of an oxymoron,” Eiseman says. “This is the kind of color attached, historically, to originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking. These are the elements we need to create a meaningful future. Inventiveness and imagination is something we seek in our personal lives and business worlds. People are looking for that ‘magic bullet,’ and this shade is the perfect shade to lead right into it . . . It’s intriguing, fascinating, and magical.” Text courtesy @fastcodesign

Mapping Production : : ARCHITECTEM Summer Program

Architecture engages a culture’s deepest social values and expresses them in material, aesthetic form.

PROGRAM ::

Mapping Production is a week long Program being held from 10th – 18th June 2017 at Alserkal Avenue. ARCHITECTEM is invested in delivering academically driven Programs to the architecture and design community with the aim of enriching the Architectural fabric of Dubai.

Drawing inspiration from Al Quoz, the Mapping Production Program is composed of two parts:

a.Dialogues Series, and

b. Mapping Workshop.

Mapping Production will be a ground for research, learning, networking and mentoring between academics and students from different architecture programs, and professionally practicing architects in the UAE. We are especially interested in the observations and dialogue that will arise within and from the workshop.

Dialogue : : Sunil Bald : : iHouse Dormitory \ Studio SUMO

Studio SUMO is a New York based practice, focused on innovative design involving extensive research, formal exploration, and material invention. Embracing physical, social, and cultural contexts, as forces that shape design, both partners Sunil Bald and Yolande Daniels are directly involved with each project.

ARCHITECTEM held a conversation with Sunil Bald, about his studio, a recent project – the iHouse Dormitory complex for Josai International University, and the sesitivity of designing in Japan. Sunil Bald divides his time working between New York and Tokyo, and is Associate Professor at the Yale School of Architecture.
