Dan Phillips builds homes out of recycled and reclaimed materials in Huntsville, Texas.

Why you should listen to him:

Dan Phillips is a designer and builder in Huntsville, Texas. In 1998, he and his wife, Marsha, started The Phoenix Commotion, a construction company that builds affordable houses from reclaimed and recycled materials. Their mission is to divert landfill waste while creating sustainable housing for single mothers, artists, and families with low incomes. The Phoenix Commotion keeps labor costs low while reclaiming human potential. They use an apprentice program to teach sustainable building skills to individuals that volunteer or intern on the Phoenix Commotion Crew.

The houses are energy-efficient, cheap and satisfying to build -- and wildly, effervescently creative. To the Phillipses, any material used in enough multiples creates a beautiful pattern -- so Phoenix Commotion homes are covered and decorated with salvaged materials of many stripes. Homes are built in concert with their eventual owner, who contributes sweat equity and their own artistic flair.

"Mr. Phillips said his biggest reward was giving less-fortunate people the opportunity to own a home and watching them develop a sense of satisfaction and self-determination in the course of building it."
New York Times
Dan Phillips on the Web

The Phoenix Commotion is a local building initiative created to prove that constructing homes with recycled and salvaged materials has a viable place in the building industry. This process uses only apprentice labor and teaches marketable skills to anyone with a work ethic who is willing to swing a hammer. By keeping labor costs low and using donated or found materials, the homes created are truly affordable. No two are alike due to the myriad of materials used, so there is an artistic element that makes Phoenix Commotion homes unique. We target single parents, artists, and families with low incomes. We require the homeowner to be involved with the planning and construction of his or her own home. The result is a person who is empowered, not only by the useful knowledge of building skills, but by the opportunity to become part of a community as a vested participant.

WAF delegates gain free entry to sister event

INSIDE: World Festival of Interiors CCIB, Barcelona 2-3 November 2011

The World Architecture Festival (WAF) Awards 2011 Interiors and Fit Out category has evolved into an innovative new festival in its own right that will celebrate the most inspired and accomplished interiors around the world.

Named Inside, the brand-new sister event to WAF will run from the 2-3 November 2011 at the CCIB across two days of WAF. All delegates who purchase a visitor pass for WAF will be able to visit Inside free of charge, and vice versa.

INSIDE is launching during Milan Design Week with an exclusive dinner at Tom Dixon’s pop-up restaurant Parlement.

With the fabulous city of Barcelona as a backdrop, Inside is set to become one of the most important fixtures on the international design calendar, with new and established designers, clients and leading industry figures rubbing shoulders over two exciting days in November.

The core of Inside is an innovative awards scheme judged by some of the best names in the business, including Ilse Crawford, Andre Fu, Ross Lovegrove and Paul Priestman. Rather than schemes being judged behind closed doors, leading design names will pitch against each other in live presentations to win the accolade World Interior of the Year.

Inside will be a striking showpiece in itself – courtesy of rising graphic design stars, Multistorey and Frank (collaborators with Established and Sons) who will create a dynamic exhibition space with a dramatic, central bar/café serving fabulous Spanish food.

Inside will also feature an inspiring talks programme curated by Programme Director Claire Barrett including topics such as: Can interior design make food taste better? Heal You? Make you work better? Spend better? Help you escape? Other unmissable highlights include product showcases and installations exploring the culture of interior design across the world, as well as parties and fringe events throughout the city. 

Judge Paul Priestman, co-director at Priestmangoode, said:

‘The nature of our industry is changing and we now operate in an increasingly global market. With its inclusion of interiors projects from around the world, INSIDE gives great insight into interior design practice today, and is a unique opportunity to look at developments in interior design across a wide range of industries, like health, hospitality and transport.’

Inside will be a buzzing hub for exchanging ideas and seeing the very latest in design from around the world – giving visitors an instant snapshot of the international interiors scene. Entries are now open at www.insidefestival.com.

Greg Lynn habla del cálculo en la arquitectura

65218_254x191

Greg Lynn habla de las bases matemáticas de la arquitectura y de cómo el cálculo y las herramientas digitales permiten a los diseñadores modernos ir más allá de las formas tradicionales de construcción. Una gloriosa iglesia en Queens (y un juego de té de titanio) ilustran su teoría.

Greg Lynn is the head of Greg Lynn FORM, an architecture firm known for its boundary-breaking, biomorphic shapes and its embrace of digital tools for design and fabrication.

Why you should listen to him:

Who says great architecture must be proportional and symmetrical? Not Greg Lynn. He and his firm, Greg Lynn FORM, have been pushing the edges of building design, by stripping away the traditional dictates of line and proportion and looking into the heart of what a building needs to be.

A series of revelations about building practice -- "Vertical structure is overrated"; "Symmetry is bankrupt" -- helped Lynn and his studio conceptualize a new approach, which uses calculus, sophisticated modeling tools, and an embrace of new manufacturing techniques to make buildings that, at their core, enclose space in the best possible way. The New York Presbyterian church that Lynn designed with Douglas Garofalo and Michael McInturf, collaborating remotely, is a glorious example of this -- as a quiet industrial building is transformed into a space for worship and contemplation with soaring, uniquely shaped and tuned elements.

In a sort of midcareer retrospective, the book Greg Lynn Form (watch the video) was released in October 2008; recently, Lynn has collaborated with the video team Imaginary Forces on the New City installation as part of the MOMA exhibit "Design and the Elastic Mind." In November 2008, FORM won a Golden Lion at the Venice Bienniale for its exhibition Recycled Toy Furniture.

El manantial (The Fountainhead)

manantial

El manantial (The Fountainhead) es una película basada en la novela El manantial, de Ayn Rand. Sigue fielmente la trama argumental básica de la novela, aunque, como es lógico, dejando fuera muchas subtramas del libro.

Fue realizada en 1949, dirigida por King Vidor y está protagonizada por Gary Cooper (Howard Roark), Patricia Neal (Dominique Francon), Raymond Massey (Gail Wynand) y Kent Smith (Peter Keating).

El guión fue escrito por Ayn Rand, y controlado minuciosamente por ella misma de una forma completamente desacostumbrada en Hollywood, donde los estudios se toman todo tipo de libertades con los guiones originales. En varias ocasiones durante el rodaje, Ayn amenazó con suspender todo el proyecto si el guión sufría la más leve modificación.

Ayn Rand quería que los diseños arquitectónicos que aparecen en la película fuesen hechos por Frank Lloyd Wright, el arquitecto real que inspira parcialmente al arquitecto de ficción, Howard Roark. Lloyd Wright pedía tanto dinero por sus diseños que los estudios vetaron esta posibilidad.

Tanto Gary Cooper como Ayn Rand no quedaron satisfechos con la película. Gary Cooper, quizás ya demasiado mayor para un papel que en libro corresponde a un hombre joven, pronunció el famoso discurso final sin entenderlo realmente, cosa que se nota en la entonación y el énfasis. Incluso se disculpó ante Ayn Rand y le ofreció volver a rodar la escena, oferta que Ayn rechazó. Ayn Rand tuvo que luchar mucho para mantener la integridad del guión, y aún así tampoco quedó satisfecha con la película, llegando a afirmar que lo único bueno que tenía era que conseguiría nuevos lectores para la novela.

No obstante, la película es muy apreciada hoy en día en círculos objetivistas. En las redes P2P los seguidores de Ayn Rand distribuyen fragmentos de audio o vídeo de la película.

Parte del éxito de la película vino del hecho de que la novela se convirtió en una lectura popular entre los soldados norteamericanos durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial.

Mensaje político

La película contiene un mensaje político que coincide con la filosofía objetivista randiana. Describe parte de dicha filosofía, aunque según la propia Ayn Rand no quedó del todo conforme con el resultado. Howard Roark es el prototipo de hombre dentro de esta filosofía y Ellsworth Toohey, columnista del periódico, es su antítesis, un hombre cuyo pensamiento podríamos definir en el siguiente extracto del libro en que se basa esta película:

El problema básico del mundo moderno, es la falacia intelectual de considerar que la libertad y la coerción son opuestos. Para resolver los gigantescos problemas que agitan el mundo de hoy, debemos esclarecer nuestra confusión mental. Debemos adquirir una perspectiva filosófica. En esencia, libertad y coerción son la misma cosa. Les daré un ejemplo: los semáforos restringen su libertad de cruzar la calle cuando lo desean. Pero esa restricción les da la libertad de no ser atropellados por un camión. Si se les diera un trabajo y se les prohibiera abandonarlo, se restringiría la libertad de sus carreras, pero se les daría la libertad de no temer al desempleo. Siempre que se impone una nueva coerción sobre nosotros, automáticamente ganamos una nueva libertad. Las dos son inseparables. Sólo aceptando la coerción total podemos conseguir nuestra libertad total.

El filósofo marxista Slavoj Žižek ha dicho que El manantial es "la mejor película estadounidense de todos los tiempos".[1]

Michael Pawlyn: usando el genio de la Naturaleza en la arquitectura

7577a2a741534b0d09bf18e38a131781daa9dacd_254x191

¿Cómo pueden construir los arquitectos un mundo nuevo de belleza sostenible? Aprendiendo de la Naturaleza. En el TEDSalon de Londres Michael Pawlyn describe tres hábitos de la Naturaleza que podrían transformar la arquitectura y la sociedad: la eficiencia radical en el uso de recursos, los circuitos cerrados y la energía solar.

Michael Pawlyn takes cues from nature to make new, sustainable architectural environments.

Why you should listen to him:

Michael Pawlyn established the architecture firm Exploration in 2007 to focus on environmentally sustainable projects that take their inspiration from nature.
Prior to setting up the company, Pawlyn worked with the firm Grimshaw for ten years and was central to the team that radically re-invented horticultural architecture for the Eden Project. He was responsible for leading the design of the Warm Temperate and Humid Tropics Biomes and the subsequent phases that included proposals for a third Biome for plants from dry tropical regions. In 1999 he was one of five winners in A Car-free London, an ideas competition for strategic solutions to the capital’s future transport needs and new possibilities for urban spaces. In September 2003 he joined an intensive course in nature-inspired design at Schumacher College, run by Amory Lovins and Janine Benyus. He has lectured widely on the subject of sustainable design in the UK and abroad.

His Sahara Forest Project, covered in this TEDTalk, recently won major funding >>

Arquitectura romántica y moderna por Reed Kroloff

49844_254x191

Reed Kroloff nos da una nueva mirada para juzgar la nueva arquitectura: ¿es moderna o romántica? Busca imágenes magníficas de dos prácticas principales -- y una crítica feroz del proceso de planificación posterior al 11-S.

Translated into Spanish by Nathali Robledo

With an outspoken approach to the problems of rebuilding cites and a fearless eye for design, Reed Kroloff is helping to change the urban landscape of cities from New York to New Orleans.

Why you should listen to him:

Already known throughout the architecture community for his award-winning tenure as editor-in-chief of Architecture magazine, Reed Kroloff came to the attention of the country at large after Hurricane Katrina. As Dean of Architecture at Tulane University, he was responsible for bringing back 97% of the school's student body and 100% of its faculty after the disaster. In 2005, New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin appointed Kroloff to the Bring New Orleans Back Commission to assist in the reconstruction of the city, and to help avoid creating, in Kroloff's words, "a bad cartoon version of what New Orleans actually is."

His searing 2006 essay "Black Like Me" lays out the frustrations of a citizen of post-Katrina New Orleans -- "the slow-burning frustration of being at the table but not invited to sit down." It's typical of his desire to look past simple aesthetics to the emotional heart of any building project.

Kroloff left New Orleans in 2007 to become the director of the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. He continues to promote excellence in urban design through his writing and his consulting firm Jones | Kroloff. He is also an active organizer and adviser for dozens of New Public Works competitions designed to choose architects for high-profile projects, including the Motown Center in Detroit, and a signature building for the University of Connecticut campus (the contract for which was awarded to Frank Gehry).

"Mr. Kroloff can afford to be cheeky."

Arquitectura hecha de materiales inertes, Rachel Amstrong

126219_254x191

Venecia, en Italia, se está hundiendo. Para salvarla, Rachel Amstrong dice que necesitamos superar la arquitectura hecha de materiales inertes y hacer arquitectura que crezca por sí misma. Ella propone un material "no del todo vivo" que hace sus propias reparaciones y, además, captura el carbono.

TED Fellow Rachel Armstrong researches "metabolic materials" -- construction materials that possess some of the properties of living systems, and can be manipulated to "grow" architecture.

Why you should listen to her:

Rachel Armstrong is a medical doctor, multi-media producer, science fiction author and arts collaborator. Her current research explores architectural design and mythologies about new technology. She is working with scientists and architects to explore cutting-edge, sustainable technologies.

Armstrong's hope is that, in the future, cities will be able to replace the energy they draw from the environment, respond to the needs of their populations and eventually become regarded as "alive" -- in the same way we think about parks or gardens. Since "metabolic materials" are made from terrestrial chemistry, they would not be exclusive to the developed world, and would have the potential to transform urban environments worldwide.

"Scientists need to work outside their own areas of expertise to make new technologies that are pertinent to the 21st century and to collaborate, both with other scientific disciplines and the arts and humanities."

Described as "cutting edge science based on experimental evidence", tomorrow I'll be down at SciFi, London at a uniquely stimulating talk before disappearing on a bank hols Monday into my own research.
I'd strongly request you come down to Sci Fi London if you've any interest at peering at the future of the creation of life through artificial and synthetic life forms.
I'm chairing the debate - a fancy way of saying I'll stay the heck away from any dense debate and let them continue uninterrupted. I got a degree in Applied chemistry, not a PHD
So it features some of the most respected figures in their field, two of whom I have come to know as cohorts on my research programme.

Personal Profile

Dr Rachel Armstrong is a writer, multimedia producer, television presenter, arts collaborator and general medical practitioner specializing in non-Darwinian techniques of evolution and the challenges of the extra-terrestrial environment. She regards the discipline of architecture as holding a unique place in the cultural imagination being simultaneously iconic and personal, and which offers an ideal forum to engage with and reimagine our experience of the world so that we can reinvent our role within it. She is a Teaching Fellow at the Bartlett and member of Professor Neil Spiller’s AVATAR Research Group, developing a new architectural methodology called Systems Architecture, which is which is the study of complexity within the discipline of the built environment that enables the convergence of the nano-bio-info-cogno technologies and extends from the macroscale flow of information to the micro scale organization of building materials. She has worked as a technical tutor at the Bartlett School of Architecture with students exploring the connections between biology, medicine and architecture. She was technical advisor to international performance artists such as Orlan and Stelarc on projects that explored the possibilities and implications of extreme anatomical and biotechnical modification and is the author and producer of a large range of multimedia projects and digital medical programmes ranging from printed literature to virtual reality and the Internet. Her first Science-Fiction novel ‘The Gray’s Anatomy’ was published in 2001 by Serpent’s Tail. She was also an editor of an Art & Design Issue entitled ‘Sci-Fi Aesthetics’, released in 1997 by Wiley-Academy, and ‘Space Architecture’ for Architectural Design in 2001. She has published extensively on post-human evolution and alien phenomena, working at the intersection of art, science and technology.

EDUCATE: support the implementation of environmental sustainability as an integral part of architectural design education

EDUCATE partners are engaging with the implementation of a Pilot Study aimed at testing the pedagogical developments described within the ‘Framework for Curriculum Development’, available for download from http://www.educate-sustainability.eu/educate-framework.php
In order to support the implementation of environmental sustainability as an integral part of architectural design education, such developments have included the setting up of new module syllabuses and the utilisation of innovative educational methodologies and tools, such as those offered by the EDUCATE Portal.
The EDUCATE Portal has been designed as an interactive e-learning system centred around a comprehensive Knowledge Base, where the cognitive domains of Issues & Principles, Applications & Case Studies and Tools are extensively presented. Significant work is currently undergoing to develop and test the effectiveness of the facilities provided by the Portal in supporting teaching and learning in pre- and post-professional education. Given the novelty of the EDUCATE Portal, its structure has been developed so to incorporate considerable flexibility, allowing the system configuration to be adapted according to the pedagogical requirements of each participating institution.
Students enrolled in modules taking part to the Pilot Study are able to perform a number of functions on the Portal, including the possibility to interact with their peers and tutors. Students are primarily given access to the Knowledge Base, freely searching for contents or being directed via customised Reading Lists arranged by their tutors. A Discussion forum can be set up so that each group of users can share comments, posts, information, data, links, etc., with their fellow colleagues. If during the development of a project, students are unable to find a solution to a particular design problem, they can be given the possibility of browsing through a list of Frequently Asked Question or may decide to directly ask a question to a tutor, tagging their query with topics from the Knowledge Base chosen from drop-down menus. Questions can be accompanied by an annotated sketch to facilitate the answer by their tutor. The Portal also offers the possibility of managing design studios online. Students are in fact given the possibility to upload work for interim or final assessment during the course of a project and require feedback from a tutor or from their peers. The reviews of other students’ work may form part of a student’s final assessment. Finally, students may have an option to create an e-Portfolio of their finalized work, which can be available for public access.
EDUCATE partners are also collaborating with participating Chambers of Architects to set up customised Professional spaces, where practitioners can be given access to the Knowledge Base and eventually to CPD areas consisting of guided Reading Lists and dedicated Discussion forums. If agreed with professional bodies, during the Pilot Study practitioners may also be provided with a list of Frequently Asked Questions relevant to a specific topic, and engage with experts at participating institutions. Further information on the development and preliminary results of the Pilot Study will be given in following issues of EDUCATE News!

Cambiando Paradigmas En La Educación - Ken Robinson (Subtitulada)

Parte de una muy interesante conferencia dada por Ken Robinson en RSA (Royal Society for the Encouragement of the Arts, Manufactures and Commerce) de Londres, presentada en formato de Animación Scribing (animación de un dibujo en sincronía con una charla).
Algunas ideas expresadas en el video son:
No tenemos idea cómo será la economía en el futuro pero la educación actual se esfuerza en preparar a los niños para que se adapten a ella.
El sistema educativo fue diseñado y concebido en un contexto histórico diferente al actual, sin embargo las instituciones educativas utilizan los mismos métodos.
Hoy en día tener un título universitario no garantiza que se conseguirá un trabajo, nuestros niños lo saben muy bien.
El concepto más dañino es que existen dos tipos de personas: las académicas (inteligentes) y las no académicas (no inteligentes).
El trastorno por déficit de atención NO ES UNA EPIDEMIA, es normal que los niños presten menos atención a los contenidos y modos de transmisión que les resultan aburridos.
El sistema actual desvaloriza las experiencias estéticas que estimulan los sentidos, priorizando las "anestésicas" que terminan convirtiéndonos en zombies.
Las escuelas todavía están organizadas como líneas de pruducción de fábricas, los niños son clasificados por edad.
Creatividad es el proceso de tener ideas originales que tienen valor.
La capacidad de pensar de forma creativa es natural en los niños, pero se pierde con el tiempo.
