A Multi-Layered House Becomes a Landscape of its Own in Dense Osaka

2 days 20 hours ago
[ By SA Rogers in Architecture & Houses & Residential. ]

When cities are so dense and plots of land so small it seems like you don’t have room for a yard, maybe it’s time to reconsider what a yard can look like. Presented with the challenge of designing a sunny and spacious residence in a cramped Osaka neighborhood, Japanese firm Tomohiro Hata Architect and Associates went back in time for a solution, imagining what the area looked like before it was developed and aiming to reinvent it for this new purpose.

The architects looked to the nearby mountains and imagined the lush vegetation that once would have flowed down from them into the valleys, using this image as the genesis of their “micro-topography” concept. A series of stacked concrete slabs echoes the stratification of the Earth while providing airy open platforms that support a range of ordinary domestic functions and interplay with nature.

Top 10 Cities To Invest In Real Estate

2 days 20 hours ago

Real estate is one of the most practical investments you’ll make in your life. A venture into the housing economy is a prosperous one because its products increase in value over time, unlike other goods. In order to reap these benefits, however, it’s also important to be practical about where you put your hard-earned money.

These are the top 10 cities where you should invest in real estate:

  1. Detroit, MI

While recent news showed a 10.5% dip in commercial real estate sales last year, bestrealestatedirectory.com noted that realtors and investment firms are calling Detroit a “Phoenix.” This is because of the massive land space that’s ripe for investment. You just need a solid property investor lead generation strategy to connect with homeowners of undervalued properties.

  1. Chicago, IL

Experts forecast that the Windy City will have a strong year in 2019. There will be challenges but, ultimately, there will be multiple interest-rate increases for commercial real estate. The city also has “Opportunity Zones” with special tax rates to encourage investors to place money in economically-challenged communities.

Flexicover | 5-1/4 x 9-1/2 inches | 216 pages | 290 color illustrations | English | ISBN: 978-1864707915 | $30.00

Publisher Description:
Architecture Can! is an intriguing journey through the works and projects of the groundbreaking architecture firm Hollwich Kushner, based in New York. Partners Matthias Hollwich and Marc Kushner design projects at every scale: intimate, awe-inspiring, and everything in between; from residences to universities, museums, and urban plans.

As two founders of leading architecture social media network Architizer, Hollwich and Kushner frankly admit the power of social media in contemporary architecture practice. Images of new and advanced buildings and concepts travel the globe at high speed, influencing a new generation of projects before the previous generation has broken ground. To stand out, they believe, architecture must "empower people to engage with others, to produce memorable experiences, and to live with a sense of wonder."

Congreso de Historia de la Arquitectura Moderna Española: Los edificios de la Industria

3 days 3 hours ago

El XII Congreso Internacional Historia de la Arquitectura Moderna Española organizado por la Universidad de Navarra ha abierto la fase de recepción de propuestas para la edición de 2019. El tema propuesto es: “Los edificios de la Industria: icono y espacio de progreso para la arquitectura en el arranque de la modernidad”.

Alejandro de la Sota. Edificio CLESA, Madrid, 1963.

Las formas de las construcciones para la industria (en todos sus frentes, desde los embalses, los almacenes y los silos, a los talleres y molinos), en su búsqueda eminente de la eficacia económica y espacial, fueron referencias formales muy atractivas para los arquitectos en el arranque del movimiento moderno, e inspiraron muchas veces los diseños de la edificación urbana ordinaria.

Las cuestiones principales a considerar durante el Congreso:

-El sitio que les correspondió a las imágenes de los edificios de la industria -y sus fotografías- como referencias formales para la arquitectura.

-El papel desempeñado por los propios proyectos de edificios para la industria como espacio para el progreso arquitectónico.

-La consideración de la industria como espacio destacado de globalización de la arquitectura.

La fecha límite de recepción de propuestas es el 10 de mayo de 2019, y la celebración del congreso está prevista para los días 25-27 de marzo de 2020.
