Shipwreck & Fractal Cult – Burning Man

img_8685

Shipwreck and Fractal Cult have made the journey from the drawing boards of studio, a kickstarter for funding, and finally all the way across the pond to construction at Burning Man.  Watching this studio has been a amazing to watch from the outside, a rare glimpse into the studio life and culture of another architecture school.  Not only that the dedication from their teachers from design to realization is rather impressive. Check out the work after the jump and make sure to check out WeWantToLearn for this years studio!

Lead Flow – Alexander Liew

553011_10200370827947620_498734562_n

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!

Rio Olympic Kit – Ione Braddick

IMG_5463 ALTERED

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!

Futures + Design – Your Student Architectural Journal!

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!
