Last week was crazy in Boston and we know it wasn’t easy to focus on studio work, especially all you archy’s in Boston. Our hearts go out to you as we know the long nights and countless days in studio are growing close to an end. F+ is right here to help you find that last minute inspiration. Once your reviews are done, and you get some shut eye, let us showcase your work, or even suggest a college that we should check out!
The long nights and countless days in studio are coming close to an end as most of you are reaching the end of the year. Futures+ wants to wish you luck as you begin to pour countless hours and endless nights into your designs. But hey once you get a chance to catch up on your sleep, send Futures+ your design to be showcased!
Alexander Liew model alone is what really drew us to checking out this project. The model is rough and yet at the same time extremely playful in its architectural elements. We often lose ourselves in the world and precision of 3D modeling and laser cutting, to the point of forgetting material integrity in design. Models are not to be a perfect representation of your 3D model, but a continuation of your design language and material use. Alexander’s model impressed us by the material exploration of tying the old Canterbury Cathedral into his regeneration design. Check it out after the jump!

Every two years we hear and see a city being consumed with new construction for either the winter or summer Olympic Games. In Beijing China we heard about the massive evictions and destruction in order to make way for Olympic buildings. In London we got to see the same developments in London’s East side, and in Russia we are hearing how the Sochi mayor is promising snow. What if the necessary Olympic buildings were only temporary,where the impact wouldn’t be permanent? We came across Ione Braddick take on the Rio Summer Games on Instagram. The project explores creating a new legacy for the Olympic Games through creating temporary structures for the Olympic Games. Truly an exciting and fun project to check out after the jump!

Spring break is over for most, and instead of putting hours into studio it is days, as all you push your designs to the limits for final studio critiques. From first years to thesis grads we know what it takes, we have been asleep under our desk, in the same clothes for days, and had piles of coffee cups on our desk. That is why we started F+ so that when it is all said and done, you can showcase all that hard work to the world!
Futures+ is heading into NYC for the weekend, and as always running through the streets like crazy. While were doing that you should checkout the site and submit your design work!
Get a hold of a quarter of a million zip ties, 19 architecture students, and an empty room and you are going to get an explosive canvas across the space. The 5th year students kicked off the semester with a design pavilion to showcase their first semester research as they jump into the final push of their thesis. The installation, with limited supplies, plays with the simple understanding of the connection of a zip tie, and building from that connection into a canvas. The variations of the connection create a playful field condition within the space as people move around and throughout the surface. Check it out after the jump!

Last month we gave we were given an introduction to PIN architecture, a new competition forum slash architectural design conversation from a friend. We thought we would showcase the results from the 1st month of competition. Within this simple 4 inch space the spark of a much larger architectural, design, and social conversation can be had. We are really intrigued as to how long it will take for this to truly take off, as professionals and students alike can challenge their own architectural ideas in a quick and easy format. We encourage you to check out this month’s winners and this month’s new brief after the jump!
COMPETITION: PIN architecture

Today we are taking a look at the 5 young architecture studios in Italy vying for the winning design of the 2013 YAP MAXXI competition. Much like NYC’s MOMA PS1 competition the trend is being carried to the courtyard of Zaha’s MAXXI to showcase new and upcoming studios out of Italy. The five selected studios have presented their pavilion designs to the judges and are awaiting the winning proposal. As we await the winner to be revealed we get a sneak peek into the proposed designs through several images of their models. Bam! Studio has been on our radar for the past year, as we have seen several of their recent designs win other competitions. Check it out after the jump!
