The Present Situation, David Buege, Marlon Blackwell Jan 2015

The Present Situation, David Buege, Marlon Blackwell

Oz

The best-known building in northwest Arkansas and the most highly and widely acclaimed is a modest chapel in the pleasant if somewhat prosaic setting of a scruffy, even more modest Ozark forest near Eureka Springs.


Then And Now: The Context Of Continuity, Joseph Biondo, Dan Silberman Jan 2015

Then And Now: The Context Of Continuity, Joseph Biondo, Dan Silberman

Oz

An admiration of a mundane material reality can develop from the recognition that things just are as they are. There is nothing metaphysical beyond the bricks and stones and, as Peter Zumthor suggests, we can admire a tree for its just being there.


Drawing In Space, Anne Lindberg Jan 2015

Drawing In Space, Anne Lindberg

Recently, I began studying the piano again after some 35–40 years. I have found that I am drawn to minor tones, modal form, and dissonant chords—sounds that cause you to pause and wonder where it originates culturally.


Within And Among, Brad Cloepfil Jan 2015

Within And Among, Brad Cloepfil

Oz

The existing forces embodied by a site are what we commonly refer to as context. An awareness of context implies a relative positioning of the self. I am here, among these buildings, or within this field, at this place in the history of ideas and technology. In acknowledging surroundings as specific, as forged or affected by particular physical or cultural forces, experiences or qualities, you have begun a conversation of context.


Context As Continuum, Adam Yarinsky Jan 2015

Context As Continuum, Adam Yarinsky

Design, including architecture, is situated in a complex web of relationships that encompasses the full physical and social context for life on the planet. Acknowledging context as an ecology, it is also important to recognize that the boundaries between places, activities, and experiences have become blurred by the expanding virtual world and the shrinking planet.


Local Code: Real Estates, Nicholas De Monchaux Jan 2015

Popular images of entropy—a breaking glass, the lowering heap of compost, even our own descent into dust, provide a familiar, but subtly inaccurate thermodynamic picture. Viewed through an informational as well as physical lens, entropy is not a consistent movement towards flatness and uniformity, but something else as well.


The Deep Section: Karst Urbanism In Town Branch Commons, Kate Orff, Geni Wirth, Anne Weber Jan 2015

Nothing is without context. Every lawn, parking lot, skyscraper, or national park has been shaped by a myriad of factors natural and humanmade. As a research-driven practice, our work at SCAPE is empowered by the complex layers of systems that act upon a site: rates of urban development, economic shifts, ecological flows of plants and animals, hydrological systems, and circulation systems, to name just a few.

York Mountain Winery, established in 1882, is the oldest winery in the California Central Coast region. Epoch Wines acquired the property in 2010—with ambitions to serve as patrons of the property and its iconic wine history, while adding their own layer to its ongoing use as a functioning winery.


Sugar Hill Project: Harlem, New York, David Adjaye Jan 2015

Sugar Hill Project: Harlem, New York, David Adjaye

Oz

Sugar Hill is a new mixed-use development in Harlem’s historic Sugar Hill district that features affordable housing, a children’s museum, preschool, non-profit offices, and underground parking. Initiated by non-profit developer of supportive housing, Broadway Housing Communities (BHC), and generated by a tight budget as well as the exacting parameters of the site, the concept challenges the traditional typology of low cost housing and reflects Adjaye Associates’ commitment to a wider urban and cultural responsibility.
