The broken connections

What is a urban planning strategy that in essence creates an introverted and inaccessible town, where the natural foundations are at taken for granted, in practice ignored; connections lost, architecture randomised and most of the ideal locations for development regulated to industrial sites and/or parking lots?

When growing up, I had some favorite games – board games, of course, and the video games later on – but among my favorites were simple, creative games and puzzle solving. I read somewhere that puzzle solving is a common trait among architects – certainly not exclusive to us, however – but problem solving never gets old, no matter the level, and some times even the tiniest of games can satisfy the restless mind.

Construction design – Steps and stairs

Designing steps and stairs is no joke!

The more I use this tool, the more I enjoy it – and for tasks such as these, there are simply no reason what so ever to use more technical tools such as AutoCAD.

Construction design, part 3

Google SketchUp mock-up model with some custom elements included. 

We have started our first excersise in the construction design course: pavings. On a given part of the project site we are to test out different materials and patterns, while facing issues such as surface runoff, pressure loads, dimensions and aesthetics.

  • We need to talk about water
    They say that the future wars and conflicts will be about water. Battles will be fought over a valuable and vital resource due to the decreasing levels of it. Despite our dependency of it, we seem to take it for granted. Is the ubiquity of water causing us to manage it so callously?
