“Kazuo Shinohara” by Kenneth FramptonI came to know this Japanese master’s works through this book. There are many monographs published on his works, but this little book with mostly B&W photos is just enough to tell what the architect was thinking and doing. Shinohara is the mentor of Toyo Ito, Sejima Kazuyo, and many other cutting edge architects in Japan. I would say that he is the most influential living architect in Japan. (or at least he was, up until ten years ago.)
“Louis I. Kahn Writings, Lectures, Interviews” by Alessandra Latour (Editor)Doesn’t have to be this book, although it is well edited, but any of Kahn’s own writings are always enlightening.

"AECbytes starts this month with a Viewpoint contribution from Fred Abler, CEO of FormFonts.com, and design instructor and researcher, CAL POLY. He has spent 15 years in the software industry working on research prototypes for professionally developed building components and a multi-platform database for 3D modelers and BIM applications. He describes various emerging technologies such as expressive graphics, object agents, and generative components that will soon benefit 3D building simulation and better enable virtual delivery of AEC professional services."

"...the concrete had already been poured for the huge bowl that will seat 91,000 spectators at the 2008 Olympic Games, and the raising and welding of the steel columns and beams — tasks that require extra training and elbow room — were well under way....
...Knowing that the nickname "bird's nest" has clicked with the Chinese public, I could imagine the enormous cranes as Godzilla-fied birds and the dangling curves of steel as worms being lowered for the chicks. The 24 main columns are gargantuan — 1,000 tons each, far more than the weight of those in a conventional stadium and spaced in what appears to be a random pattern.... "Passage  to find out more...

"Andrea Palladio (1508-80) was an Italian architect, one of the most influential architects of our time. Palladio was born November 8, 1508, in Padua, and trained as a stonemason. Palladio moved to Vicenza in his early twenties. Originally named Andrea di Pietro della Gondola, he was named Palladio (after Pallade the goddess of wisdom daughter of Zeus) by the Italian poet and patron Giangiorgio Trissino, who oversaw Palladio's architectural studies. Trissino took him to Rome, where Palladio studied and measured Roman architectural ruins; he also studied the treatises of Vitruvius, one of the most important of the Roman architects."Passage  to find out more...

1. Roof Expression
2. Plane, Stilts, Form(Box)
3. Box on Stilts
4. Patterned & Textured Surface
5. Graphics/Signage wall
6. Entrance Gesture with Linear Canopy
The conclusion is expression through collaboration of planes, stilts and form, the most feasible and cost effective method. A strong statement, a simple texture, and signage implementation with required colour scheme treatment.

Another interesting project by Andrew Maynard is Bill House. The sketches shows the idea, the 3d presents the idea. The thing I like about this is the wall, roof and floor are all formed by a plane, deconstructing all the elements into a unity. It is very neat, isn't it? I think the difficulty is the scale of this building and the communication with the existing environment. Wondering how the environment looks like.

Rather than reporting on the latest doings of the all-too-familiar big names that crop up in all the architecture journals, A10 casts its net more widely to take in the many other interesting things that are happening in the old continent, devoting equal attention to the architectural production in Western, Central and Eastern Europe.
With clear and informative reporting, A10 presents new buildings and projects by tomorrow’s stars, forgotten masters and as yet unknown talents." to find out more...

The name "VivoCity", which is derived from the word "vivacity", evokes a lifestyle experience that is modern, stimulating and accessible to everyone, a place bubbling with energy and flowing with vitality. It feels alive.
The VivoCity identity is inspired by a sense of natural energy and flow. Its organic and dynamic nature expresses the stimulating experience, reflects the energy in the name and complements the architectural vision." to find out more...
