014: Being an Architect is Hell

10 December, 2018 - 02:00

As an architect, every space I walk in to, I look at … intensely. I scrutinize, evaluate, process, and redesign. Every. Single. Space. There are times when I wish this didn’t happen … most of the time actually. Being blissfully unaware of unresolved plan geometries – particularly when I am not “on the clock” sounds pretty good but I know it won’t be that way for me any longer. I have completely crossed over to the architect side.

Molly Bourne sees landscape architecture as an agency of change

10 December, 2018 - 00:00

WLA recently had the chance to interview Molly Bourne, a Principal at MNLA, a New York City-based landscape architecture firm.  A Maryland native, Molly brings over 26 years of design experience to each of her projects in which she consistently leverages a combination of award-winning design talent and creative collaboration. She personally navigates each of her projects from concept through construction and directs numerous multidisciplinary consultant teams on high-profile initiatives for waterfront parks, cultural institutions, and urban revitalization.

A graduate of the University of Florida, Molly holds a Bachelor of Arts in Landscape Architecture. She actively fosters the future of design through her work with the ACE Mentor Program for New York City high school students and as a guest critic at the University of Pennsylvania. Most recently, she has been leading MNLA’s efforts for Waterline Square. This nearly decade-long effort creates an unprecedented approach to urban living that connects park front beauty from Central Park to Hudson River Park along the central corridor of West 60th Street.

Studio Fink & Matthew Childs Design collaborated on temporary landscape play installation in Moscow

9 December, 2018 - 23:00

Studio Fink and Matthew Childs Design collaborated on a temporary 850 meters long landscape play installation in Moscow. During its two-week existence in September 2018 the installation was enjoyed by 70000 people.

The project was part of the 2018 Moscow International Landscape Festival. Only in its second year is putting itself on the global map of garden festivals with over 1500 realised professional projects selected through international and national competitions. In addition, 1100 small amateur gardens were constructed throughout the city.

The large-scale temporary transformation of Tverskoy Boulevard , one of the main historical thoroughfares in central Moscow presented many formidable challenges both in design and logistics. The 850 meter section forms a central part of the Boulevard Ring and is one of the busiest places in Moscow. It provides both a magnificent mature green linear space as well as cultural associations with many Russian writers, for example Leo Tolstoy, Anton Chekhov, Ivan Bunin, Alexander Pushkin and Mikhail Bulgakov.

In Plane Sight: The Fort Worth Alliance Airport ATC Tower

9 December, 2018 - 20:00
[ By Steve in Architecture & Offices & Commercial. ]

The Fort Worth Alliance Airport air traffic control tower is an FAA-certified Level 5 facility whose design showcases the best features of Modernism.

Designed by architectural firm Albert Halff Associates, the control tower opened in 1992 and is the crowning glory of Fort Worth Alliance Airport. It was also one of the final pieces of the puzzle to be put in place at AFW, which officially opened on December 14th of 1989. We’re not sure how pilots managed to fly into and out of AFW in the interim… maybe they just winged it.

via V8 Architects via V8 Architects

The Dutch pavilion for Dubai EXPO 2020 has been unveiled, designed by a consortium, made up of Expomobilia, Kossmann.dejong, V8 Architects and Witteveen+Bos. The scheme has been designed “as a closed-loop climate system in which private and business visitors will enjoy an intense sensorial experience.”

Based on the Netherland’s chosen theme of “uniting water, energy, and food” the pavilion will be built using a construction method prioritizing closed-loop circularity, local materials, and a post-use recyclable agenda.
