Joints

Joint (0)

Joint (I think ) is an installation that was done by MIT architecture students during the summer. It uses the latest software and fabrication techniques. Just when you can’t think of new ways to use tradition wood joints for contemporary architectural forms there’s joint. Interesting how it has aged over the last 2 months.

三里屯 SANLITUN – Beijing – Kengo Kuma Associate Architects

BeiJing-6432

While Kuma San never really talk about his urban design projects, I find them fairly interesting. They are not the most innovative designs, but he is convincing. For some reason, he was able to create a mall that’s not indoors. And this is difficult because its fairly hot in the summer in Beijing, and many contemporary malls in China are indoors, and lacks any relationships with its site. Additionally, there’s enough program and circulation on the site such that it is very friendly to a street audience. Its relatively active all hours of the day, and in a way, I think its successful in a city that doesn’t have a lot of enjoyable public spaces.

Craig Boney’ made this sweet statue. He had it in his head for a while and said one day he just felt like making it. Well, here it is. Sadly, it has to come down in a few day. The Details in this thing is amazingly simple but the effect is so dramatic. I’m surprised “ONE MAN” made this.

Mies Van der Rohe’s Barcelona Pavilion

<From Wiki>

Mies was offered the commission of this building in 1928 after his successful administration of the 1927 Werkbund exhibition in Stuttgart. The German Republic entrusted Mies with the artistic management and erection of not only the Barcelona Pavilion, but for the buildings for all the German sections at the 1929 Universal Exhibition. However, Mies had severe time constraints—he had to design the Barcelona Pavilion in less than a year—and was also dealing with uncertain economic conditions.
