Retrofitting the American Dream

Enjoy few images from this interesting project. The main reason I decided to post it was the physical models made during the process. Its been a long time since we posted actual models made by students. Although they are not really “study” models as entitled by the author they still super cool.!

  • Retrofitting The American Dream
    Student: Artur Nesterenko. Instructor: Berenika Boberska. Woodbury University
  •  “The 2007 market crash forced a relocation of suburban housing into a high-density, pedestrian-friendly neighborhood of the center city and inner suburbs. This created a profound structural shift – a reversal of what took place in the 1950s, when drivable suburbs boomed and flourished as center cities emptied and withered. The fact that the land under the house has no value and the houses are worth less than they would cost to be replaced, creates a big possibility that many fringe suburbs will turn into waste lands, with abandoned houses and a rising crime rate.

    This crash once again gives tremendous opportunity and draws the attention of the architects into the suburbs. It reminds us that we should no longer be worrying about how we are going to design communities in the future, but what we are going to do with the communities that we are left with. Instead of demolishing an abandoned neighborhood, I am proposing to deconstruct and re-purpose the remains of abandoned houses into a new construction tool according to the client’s needs and interests. The idea is to use the fabric of a failed neighborhood as a form work to construct a new type of housing with injected shared spaces and public structures. The rafters of single detached houses, the floor joists, the studs, pipes, details and the house itself with all of the structural elements will be re-used as form work to retrofit the American Dream. 

    I decided to create imaginary clients with different professions that would be interested in buying  abandoned houses to deconstruct and redesign to create new houses according to client needs. “

Stack it UP ^^

Dutch artist Marjan Teeuwen eviscerates the walls of abandoned buildings, conjoining rooms with massive holes, and uses leftover fragments to create densely textured walls and surfaces. In the project entited Destroyed House, Teeuwen removed the walls from a post-war apartment block in Amsterdam and sawed the building’s doors into hundreds of fragments, using them in turn to construct layered partitions. Walls made from doors. In other works she uses countless objects crammed into small rooms, creating claustrophobic spaces that appear on the verge of collapse, putting any contemporary hoarder to shame. If you want to learn more you can catch this 44 minute documentary of the artist at work.

Tree House Vol.#3 // The Hidden Egg

“IT worker-cum-carpenter, Joel Allen, harbored a dream of creating a house that organically meshed with the environment of his much loved woods around Whistler, British Columbia, Canada. His dream became a reality after finding friends in two fresh new architects who set him on his path of a uniquely egg shaped treehouse, now known as the HemLoft Weekend Cabin.”

Yo,

I still get shocked by how many random and interesting projects u can find on the BehanceNetwork

Projektpilot, which realises ambitious design projects, presented its full range of services for the first time at EuroShop ’08. The company focuses on a comprehensive consultancy service, and on co-ordination and realization. Its trade show appearance is conceived as an encounter and communication area. D’art Design’s basic idea is to put cardboard in a new context as a material  to produce something eye-catching that visitors will remember. There is a great deal of expertise behind the simple-looking structure. D’art Design set Projektpilot a challenging task: each of the 8,140 tubes had to have its length calculated individually in order togive the cardboard structure a three-dimensional shape.

London Festival of Architecture 2012 in Fitzrovia

‘The Playful City’ is the theme for this year’s London Festival of Architecture, running from 23 June – 8 July 2012.

From reinterpreting familiar places through new installations and animations, redesigning public spaces to encourage physical fitness in the spirit of the Olympic Games, to testing interactive forms of consultation and planning for future urban development, festival participants will be encouraged to play in, and play with, the city around them.

Fitzrovia is one of the focus areas for the festival with lots of great activities happening on the middle weekend – Saturday 30 June and Sunday 1 July. RIBA London, a regional office of the Royal Institute of British Architects, has been working with local architectural practices and organisations to curate this Fitzrovia hub which will include free events for family audiences.
