Party Wall – CODA – MOMA PS1


Today we are stepping away from the realm for academic architecture, to take a look at an up and coming young architecture design studio, CODA, who recently was selected the annual MOMA PS1 winner.  Young Architects Program at MoMA and MoMA PS1 is committed to offering emerging architectural talent the opportunity to design and present innovative projects, challenging each year’s winners to develop creative designs for a temporary, outdoor installation at MoMA PS1.  CODA’s “Party Wall” sustainable and recycling approach re-uses skateboard bi products to create large shading screen within the PS1 site.  F+ is looking forward to checking it out this summer, but you can check out more after the jump!

Whalers Cove- Patrick Beseda, UC Denver


Check out this project from Patrick, at UC Denver.  A final project from last semester, the building acts as a research and residence space for the Marina Research Academy.  Although not heavy on text (it’s Friday, we’re takin’ it easy), we are really digging the graphic representation of the project.  A couple clear exploded axos, and boldly colored boards definitely help this project stand out among the normally dark, and monotone boards of architecture reviews.

Material Matters – Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne

Continuing to follow up on the upcoming  Advances in Architectural Geometry symposium at the Pompidou Center in Paris, we are checking out Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) submission.  The video showcases a year’s worth of study, research, and construction between students and professors through the understanding of materials limitations and the proper pairing of digital fabrication techniques.  The video is amazing inside look in how other colleges around the world are defining and pushing architectures role in digital design.

srpLAB – Santiago R. Perez

Today we are coming at you with another fabrication studio that has allowed students and professors to delve into the trending world or architectural fabrication.  Over past couple years using and understanding the dynamics that tools and the modeling programs can bring to the world of architecture is increasingly important.  Digital Fabrication actually in itself has become a craft, as professor Santiago Perez and his students at University of Arkansas, Fay Jones School of Architecture know all too well.  Check it out after the JUMP!
