What if the cities we are designing today are not actually the futuristic utopias for the modern word, but rather the fragile materialistic fridges of our future dystopias? Today we are showcasing Eli Keller’s graphically stunning architectural exploration through collage into the creation of a Dystopia. Eli Keller sees Tel Aviv as the perfect storm where this lively urban culture is slowly losing its own identity; a victim of the modern world. You can see this in modern throughout the world, where the buildings and cities we live in have lost their sense of place. The glass screens on our phones and the glitter of modern buildings have forced us into a blasé attitude towards the world, blinding us to the loss of our cultural identities.

Hey its summer break and time to submit your work from the last year! F+ is here to help you find your design inspiration while you are working, in school, relaxing, traveling over the summer!

Although we tossed this up on as a post on our Facebook wall today, we thought we should highlight it a bit more. The UCL puts on annual showcase of the students works, and the event has grown with each year. When most students are tossing their models out and clearing out their desks, the Bartlett School of Architecture is in full on design and construction phase. The projects are not simply hung on the wall, but each space is designed and tailored to each studio. The presentations themselves become an architectural exploration, beyond the projects. The students collaborate and design the installation locations. If only F+ was located in England we would be checking it out ourselves, but maybe you are and you should! Get inspired by seeing what other student designers are doing! 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!
STUDENT: Ione Braddick SCHOOL: Bartlett School of Architecture PROFESSORS: Johan Berglund and Josep Mias YEAR: 5th Year
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!
