562 17:07 Melancholy & Dwelling - Contemporary Houses in Denmark

Architect Lise Juel expresses how “Melancholy as a concept has been a useful perspective in understanding artists and artworks, but it remains underexposed in the field of architecture.” And yet, she continues, this is “not melancholic in its negative sense, but in the sense of a thoughtful and pensive approach to life.” Seventeen houses in Denmark are featured in this issue, along with more than a dozen architectural offices that in turn reflect this melancholic perspective through their work, key to understanding Danish architectural practice, both traditionally and in the present. With work by Jeppe Utzon, LETH & GORI, Primus Architects, Atelier Lise Juel, and more.

556 17:01 Go Hasegawa

This edition features Japanese architect Go Hasegawa, introducing nineteen works, from his first project, House in a Forest (2006), to his most recent completed works, Yoshino Cedar House and Chapel in Guastalla. Our perception of spatial dimensions, gravity, and time has been key to Hasegawa’s approach since the outset of his career, and he challenges preconceived notions involving these concepts. Through the thoughtful presentation of detailed section drawings and new photographs, the issue reveals the structural diversity and relative spatial weight of his architecture. With an essay by Hasegawa entitled “Amplitude in the Experience of Space”.

542 15:11 - RCR Arquitectes

According to the essay by Enric Batlle i Durany, “the landscape plays a very active role in all of RCR’s works. The location is not just an additional aspect in their conception process. It is the physical and metaphysical basis of their work.” In this marvellous special issue, full of extraordinary images and stories, a portrait emerges of architects Rafael Aranda, Carme Pigem, and Ramón Vilalta that is both intimate and enlightening. It tells about their early years, how they learned from Japan, and gives an overview of recent work. Included are numerous drawings, ink washes, exfoliations, and models made by the office, reflecting both their shared creativity and ongoing dialogues.

537 15:06 - James Stirling – The Meanings of Form

A special feature on British architect James Stirling weaves an in-depth and appreciative portrait of a man many consider to be one of the most important architects of the 20th century’s second half. Tom Heneghan collaborated in this presentation of three university projects from Stirling’s early career (Leicester, Cambridge, Oxford) and three later museums (Stuttgart State Gallery, Clore Gallery, Nordrhein-Westfalen Museum). Perhaps difficult to grasp at first, with some knowledge of architectural history and culture the architect’s work opens up its rich context and humour. Besides many photos and drawings, it features essays by Heneghan and Peter Cook.

Guest-edited by Alastair Townsend, this issue dives into the complex topicality of the deluge of data driving urbanism and our lives today. It is often stressed how human agency (designers or users) must be the driving force behind technologies conceived to meet cities’ rapidly evolving needs. A series of themes is investigated (mapping, media facades, mobility, computational tools, open-source urbanism), shedding new light on the subjects underlying this contentious discussion. Filled with special features and interviews, plus contributions by Dan Hill, Eric Fischer, Carlo Ratti and Matthew Claudel, Thomas Schielke, John Frazer, Usman Haque, Geeta Mehta and more.

526 14:07 - Retreat – Primal Concept and Experimental Design

This edition focuses on those places where people tend to spend their free time, showcasing the primal concept of the retreat through experimental design. Locations of the 20 featured projects range from natural environments to dense urban situations. In these places of seclusion, functional necessity is generally of lesser priority than portraying the essential lifestyle that their users or residents desire when spending time away from their everyday lives. To match these requirements, architects are often encouraged to put their experimental concepts into practice. An essay by Juhani Pallasmaa precedes works by Cecilia Puga, Studio Mumbai, David Kohn, Casey Brown and more.

523 14:04 - Juliaan Lampens

Belgian architect Juliaan Lampens takes centre stage in this issue, which sheds light on his quiet yet remarkable career designing private homes from the post-war years through to the 21st century. The emergence of modernist architecture and his own inquisitive attitude quickly coloured Lampens’ initial traditional approach, and this comprehensive introduction to his architecture places him among the essential names of 20th century architectural history. Jo Van Den Berghe writes about the characteristic style of Lampens, while Christophe Van Gerrewey and Fredie Floré describe his undercurrent of influence in current Belgian practice and rediscovery by a wider audience.

This issue’s focus is the Bangkok-based office of A49, established 30 years ago by architect Nithi Sthapitanonda. Seeking an identity in the architectural traditions of his country, he has striven to instil new life in indigenous Thai practice by imbuing it with the principles of modernism. Initially through residential design projects, the firm has since developed a contemporary, international outlook and expertise that engages nearly any type of project, including large-scale urban planning. Featured are thirteen notable projects, such as the Phuket Renaissance Resort & Spa and the Royal Archive Centre in Nakhon Pathom, plus essays by Pussadee Tiptus and Piyalada Thaveeprungsriporn on the evolution of architecture and identity in Thailand.

Opening with the introductory essay from the 2013 MoMA exhibit, ‘Henry Labrouste: Structure Brought to Light’, it goes on to scrutinise ten works, including Warsaw’s Museum of Modern Art by Christian Kerez, Mpaungubwe Interpretation Centre by Peter Rich, Lanternen by Atelier Oslo and AWP, and the Aldar Central Market by Foster and Partners.

Dedicated to the practice of Chilean architects Mauricio Pezo and Sofia von Ellrichshausen, this edition examines ten works, from the early Poli House, which brought them international recognition, to their latest realisations and ongoing projects, and is replete with captivating photographs and drawings. Composed of bold and rigid geometry, the seemingly simplistic structures the pair designs maintain a close relation with the surroundings and, surprisingly, liberate space through its strict regulation. Essays by David Leatherbarrow and Rodrigo Pérez de Arce delve into the nature of their approach and address potentiality through their roles as artists, curators and researchers.

500th Issue Word and Image

With this issue, a+u reaches a landmark 500 issues since its foundation. That we have come this far is due solely to the support of our readers and others involved in the field of architecture. We are very grateful.
In todays global information society, the world seems to have become smaller. As the view changes, it seems that creativity and the thirst for knowledge are being lost.
Around 1971, when this magazine was founded, it must have been incomparably harder to gather information about international architecture than it is today, when information of every kind is overflowing on the Web. In those times, one of the pleasures of reading must have been the exercise of imagination touched off by a photo (often a grainy one) or a phrase in a essay.
For issue 500, three editorial advisors have selected the best from among the many brilliant essays contributed to a+u by authors from around the world.
The selected essays are remarkable for their insight into architectural trends of the time and for the inspiration they offer for the architecture of the future. Drawings are presented along with the essays.
We hope that the essays republished here will be read by readers from the generation born after a+u was founded, and that they will find hints to inspire their thinking about architecture to come. This fall, we intend to publish another commemorative issue devoted to visual material from the first 500 issues.Regardless of the 40 years of architectural history introduced in these pages, and regardless of region, we have always tried to introduce the architecture that readers of the time demanded. Without chasing after fads and fashions, a+u will continue its conversation with the best that architecture has to offer. Please look forward to it.

Small and Sustainability
It seems safe to say that the relationship between architecture and society is something that we have never stopped discussing. Recently, however, there has been a remarkable intensification in the way that architects are rethinking what they themselves can do as individuals, and how they can contribute to society.
This issue features simple and small examples of how architecture can contribute to realizing the sustainable society of the future. The featured works include a house with thick cobwork walls made of a mixture of clay and straw (Switzerland); a mountain hut of in-situ concrete built with formwork from old exterior paneling (Switzerland); a reconstructed boathouse with interior walls and window frames of discarded lumber (Norway); a weekend house originally built in the 15th century and converted several times for different uses (Italy); an extension to a 200-year-old wine cellar (Austria); a house renovated by the clients themselves for four years (Belgium); bamboo sleeping units for orphans (Thailand), and so on.
The issue also features five energy-efficient houses, including two experimental university research projects.
Rotor, a collective of young Belgian researchers who investigate design, material resources, and waste, contributed an essay for this issue. It introduces the concept of C2C popularized by the book Cradle to Cradle by William McDonough and Michael Braungart, which holds that waste can be eliminated by proper design. It examines the case of standard plasterboard, which was recently certified as a C2C product. (a+u)

498 12:03 Lacaton & Vassal

Lacaton & Vassal

This issue is devoted to the work of French architects Lacaton & Vassal (Anne Lacaton and Jean-Philippe Vassal). In order to fully capture their architectural and urban concerns in one volume, the issue documents their work from 1992-2011 in approximate order.

The unifying theme of their work is in maximizing effect through minimal costs. Special emphasis is placed on the existing environment and available structures, and strategies that supplement and compliment what is already present are preferred over those that start from scratch. Additive elements, like greenhouse modules and precast concrete frames, are directly incorporated into design. The motivation is economic as well as ecological always conceiving space through the poetic integration of nature, people, buildings, and landscapes.

I paid a visit to the office of Lacaton & Vassal in the autumn of 2011. While looking through their photographs, I notice that there were hardly any that showed their work immediately after completion. Instead, I find photographs of two distinct phases; of those being built and of those being lived in. The latter is full of life, filled with furniture and personal objects, openly revealing the daily lives of the inhabitants.

I was struck by their response when I asked about this:
Architecture is not defined by specific moments because it is not simply an object to be looked at. Rather, its existence depends on its occupation.

Within an economic context where budgetary constraints are making it more difficult for architects to realize public projects to their standards, Lacaton & Vassal continues to build for the enrichment our society and daily lives. No matter how difficult, their work is proof that it is possible to improve peoples livesthrough the practice of architecture. (a+u)

496 12:01 Architecture in the Netherlands 2000–2011

Architecture in the Netherlands 2000–2011

This issue features architecture mainly completed in the Netherlands from 2000 to 2011 and trends in the architecture of the Netherlands over the past 10 years. The works in this issue were selected by guest editor Ole Bouman, Director of the Netherlands Architecture Institute (NAi), and the NAi editorial team (Bouman, Chris Luth and Marten Kuijpers). In addition to the 30 featured works, 100 works are listed and indicated on the maps at the front of the issue.
Architecture designed by Dutch firms such as OMA and MVRDV has appeared frequently in the architectural media since the 1980s. Phrases like ‘programmatic’ and ‘SuperDutch’ have dominated the discussion and served as watchwords for new design methods. At that time, there was probably no other movement that exerted such a strong influence on architectural students and young architects.
So what is the state of Dutch architecture recently? We visited NAi in Rotterdam in the summer of 2011. From the meeting space in the NAi building, located in the museum park, a few high-rise buildings under construction and a couple of cranes could be seen. Ole Bouman said, ‘Once these buildings have been completed, we will probably not be seeing new cranes for a while,’ explaining the effect of the global financial crisis on architecture in the Netherlands. But, he continued, ‘That is why something interesting has happened.
The works in this issue were classified into three categories: architecture aiming at an emotional or intellectual response; architecture focusing on craftsmanship and precision; and performative architecture. The editorial team calls the third ‘architecture of consequence’ and portrays its practitioners as urban activists. Henk WJ Ovink explains in his essay that alliances with politics, development, investment, and education are essential. It seems that architects in the Netherlands have started something new again, expanding the role of architects and opening up new possibilities.
We would like to express our special thanks to the NAi editorial team, the authors of the articles, and all of the architects who contributed to this issue.(a+u)

495 11:12 Recent sacred space

Often one is surprised by a feeling of peacefulness when visiting a church, shrine, or temple. Is this because these buildings receive all equally, whether those who come hoping for comfort or those who come there accidentally?
This issue features ‘Recent Sacred Space’. It is a collection of 15 built works ranging from chapels to synagogues and a memorial for the victims of witch trials. Geographically it ranges from Nordic countries such as Norway and Finland to South American countries such as Brazil and Chile. The materials used in these works include wood, reinforced concrete, tiles, and PTFE.
Karla Britton notes in her essay that there was a historical trajectory in the history of modern architecture which emphasized forms that gave expression to the spirit. She also explains how the religious building type has often been a locus for advancement and innovation in modern architectural design. On the other hand, today one also sees designs which, while remaining consciously sacred buildings, seek to avoid any form of representation or specific religious symbolic system. How do people experience sacred space in the twenty-first century? (a+u)

494 11:11 Andrea Palladio in Vicenza

Palladio – a stoneworker whose architecture came to embody his city and the spirit of the nobility of his time. His so-called “Palladian style” has for centuries been a model and source of inspiration far beyond the borders of his native land. Andrea Palladio flourished in Vicenza in the Republic of Venice in the 16th century. The 500th anniversary of his birth was celebrated in 2008. Due to the fame of his La Rotunda, with its perfect symmetry in both plan and elevation, and of his book The Four Books of Architecture, the general impression of Palladio might be that of an architectural theorist who pursued uncompromising perfection in proportion and geometry. But his own writings contain numerous references to compromises with the desire of his clients for comfort and expression of their status. The combination of convenience, stability, and beauty that Palladio sought will last forever.
Over the last 450 years, not a few works by Palladio fell into a state of almost ruinous disrepair. Although most of them are registered in the UNESCO world heritage list and many are under government management, many others have been restored and managed by private enterprises and private owners. Without their affection, knowledge, and financial support, Palladio’s palazzos and villas would not exist today and would have no future. This special issue introduces the architecture of Palladio, featuring mainly works in and around Vicenza, with new photos. We thank Dr. Guido Beltramini, director of the Centro Internazionale di Studi di Architettura Andrea Palladio, and the staff of the center for their generous help. We also thank the owners for their understanding and cooperation during the photo sessions.

493 11:10 Manhattan Grid

This issue commemorates the 200th anniversary of the Manhattan Grid by looking at it from a number of perspectives. Speaking of the grid, David M. Childs, Chairman of the Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) says, “The Manhattan street grid is the single most important characteristic that defines New York and makes it unique. While its rigid geometry is often first thought to be restrictive, the anonymity of the grid actually encourages flexibility.” The richness of the city fabric is evident in the photographs by Toru Hasegawa (pp 48-53), who documented images along Broadway from the World Trade Center to Columbia University. Perhaps the grid is not only a tool by which to grasp the scale of the city, but also a platform on which multiculturalism could thrive.
The first part presents visualizations of census and zoning data made available by the city, as well as photographs and axonometric drawings to illustrate the changes and realities of Manhattan over the past two centuries. The preface collects commentaries on the grid from 11 architects whose practices are based in the city. Traversing from past, present to future, their perspectives shed light on the relationship of the grid to the city, its architecture, and its society today. The latter part of this issue catalogues 100 notable buildings in Manhattan. This architectural guide could also be viewed online (p 146).
At the dawn of the 21st century, cities around the world are competing to produce sustainable and ecological societies. Having declared its vision for 2020 (p 30), New York’s ongoing transformation and renewal may provide a glimpse of its projected future.   (a+u)

For most people, Sri Lanka (formerly know as Ceylon) brings to mind a mysterious country rich in ancient heritage sites and spectacular natural landscapes. It is within such a captivating context that the architect Geoffrey Bawa (1919-2003) practiced his craft. Considered the foremost contemporary architect in Sri Lanka, his work continues to have a lasting influence on several generations of Asian architects, particularly in the tropical regions. Working mainly in Sri Lanka and parts of tropical Asia, he adapted vernacular elements, materials, construction methodologies and thinking during a time when the current notions of sustainability and climate-responsiveness did not yet exist.

Architects’ offices are environments where new architecture is born. Especially now, many architects are trying new approaches in response to developments like environmental requirements, improved construction technology, and the acceleration and diversification of communication and design technology, all of which have led to a search for new design styles. An architect’s office, where these trends can be seen in concentrated form, is an expression of an attitude taken toward architecture. Offices include Studio Mumbai in Alibag, Peter Märkli Architects in Zurich, Atelier Bow-Wow in Tokyo, WOHA Architects in Singapore, SeARCH in Amsterdam, Import.

475 10:04 Architecture in Belgium and Netherlands

Formerly it was said in Belgium that good architecture was built mainly in suburbs. Now, due to rapid urbanization, the focus is moving towards city centres. While retaining traditional elements, current architecture employs new materials and new construction methods to create distinctive buildings. In the Netherlands, the global recession has brought an end to the erstwhile surge in development projects. But new currents are emerging, as innovative ideas and an uncompromising pursuit of quality are applied to extensions and renovations. Includes projects by Xaveer de Geyter, Stéphane Beel, Wim Goes Architectuur, Office Kersten Geers David van Severen, Robbrecht en Daem Architecten, MVRDV, Karres en Brands, Zecc Architecten, René van Zuuk, Atelier Kempe Thill, OTH, Tangram.

After repeated repairs and additions, Louis I.Kahn’s Yale University Art Gallery (1953) (by Polshek Partnership Architects) and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s Crown Hall IIT (1956) (by Krueck + Sexton) are now both restored to its original design. Further projects include the Conservation of the Bauhaus Building in Dessau, the Conservation of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and the Nestlé WellNes Center. Essays by Paul Needham and Ulf Meyer.

Through new treatments and interpretations, these ordinary materials can be transformed by technology resulting in new architectural effects. The projects in this issue are marked by this characteristic that could lead us into new expectation for the future of building and construction. Among the projects in this issue are John Lewis Department store by Foreign Office Architects, Museum Brandhorst by sauerbruch hutton, The Yas Hotel by Asymptote, Nottingham Contemporary by Caruso St John Architect, Artfarm by HHF Architects and Ai Weiwei.

The second part presents a collection of interior design projects that encourage interactive relations between people, their senses and space. Highlights include: Nouvel’s Les Bains des Docks; Pawson’s Monastery of Our Lady of Novy Dvur; Hadid’s acoustic design for the JS Bach Music Hall and Zecc Architecten’s Church of Living. Also featured are projects by Maison Martin Margiela, Philippe Rahm and Karim Rashid along with an additional set of works that provide inspired and creative solutions to what would otherwise be everyday spaces. Illustrated throughout with colour and black and white photographs and accompanied by technical drawings and explanatory texts.

469 09:10 Utzon, Fehn and Now – Architecture in Denmark and Norway

Two master architects of the 20th century passed away in 2008 and 2009, respectively, Jørn Utzon and Sverre Fehn. Both are considered as legitimate successors of the Scandinavian modernists. This issue features their last works, documented through colour photographs and accompanying technical drawings. Alongside, Kim Utzon talks about his collaboration with his father on the Utzon Centre and Thomas McQuillan writes about the legacy of Fehn’s influence on a younger generation of architects. The issue also includes nine recent architectural projects undertaken in Denmark and Norway which are introduced by two essays which together examine how the tradition of Scandinavian architecture has evolved in the footsteps of Utzon and Fehn. Projects featured include: Jensen & Skodvin’s Landscape Hotel, Sverre Fehn’s National Museum – Architecture, Oslo, and Henning Larsen Architects’ Opera in Copenhagen located on a key site in the city’s harbour area.

467 09:08 Collective Housing

Collective Housing

In this issue’s essay, Ramias Steinmann argues that collective housing has always responded architecturally to the changes of society, economy and culture. At the same time, he pointed out that, after 1980s’, collective housing has failed to find themes which are shared and pursued by architects. Now, as the first decade of the new milenium is closing, it is time for us to begin to think about what the themes of contemporay collective housing could be.
This issue includes 15 collective housing projects from Europe, America, and Asia, completed in recent years. The locations of the projects varies from metropolis like Paris and New York to the midst of a Chinese forest. Each site has unique characters, they are financed differently (government or private) and have varied demographics, all these factors affect each project differently in their form, volume and site plannning. In other words, they exhibit a unique composition in their own contexts. At the same time, from the design of details such as the exterior cladding or the openings, one can recognize the presence of the architects’ intention to control the immediate surrounding of the project architecturally. Although it might be difficult to identify a common theme shared by architects as Steinmann argues, there is a possibility that an emerging theme will arise from the individuality of works which stand between the scale of the dwelling and that of the urban.(a+u)

463 09:04 Green architecture

Amid various ecological and sustainable approaches in architectural design, the recent trend to literally cover roofs and walls with greenery – so-called ‘living’ roofs and walls has gained widespread application. This issue examines the advantages of this type of green architecture by introducing examples that range from simple roof gardens and temporary pavilions, to green houses, interior designs and public architecture. Among the projects featured here are Renzo Piano’s celebrated ‘green’ design for the California Academy of Sciences; CHANG Architects’ Elok House, Singapore; Triptyque’s Harmonia 57 project in Sao Paulo, the Bad Gleichenberg Thermal Baths, Austria, by Jensen & Skodvin and R&Sie(n)’s playful ‘i’mlostinParis project.

462 09:03 Architecture in Croatia and Slovenia

This issue of A+U introduces the work of nine offices in Croatia and Slovenia. In contrast to regions where the news is dominated by spectacular commissions, the architectural scene in these countries is characterised by skillful reinterpretations from architects whose work is firmly rooted in the climate, landscape, traditions and lifestyles of their homelands. Accompanied throughout by short essays, colour photographs, plans and elevations, this number features such works as; Sadar Vuga Arhitekti's  Apartment House Gradaška, Ljubljana; The Hotel Sotelia and the Termalija, both in Podčetrtek, by Enota; Ofis Arhitekti's apartment complex in Izola; and, STUDIO UP's Gymnasium 46,09'N/16,50'E, Koprivnica.

449 08:02 Global Strategies in Architecture

Current architectural practice has no boundaries and business opportunities can arise in both developing or mature cities. An architectural practice has to be agile, ubiquitous and networked, along with being capable of solving problems in specific cultures and environments. In order to do this new paradigms have to be constantly evolved. Practices that are approaching these challenges in diverse ways, including: GRAFT, Steven Holl Architects, OMA/AMO, Shanghai Xian Dai Architectural Design (Group) and EDAW, are featured in this volume of A+U.

With a modest but growing list of projects to his name it is not hard to understand why people get excited about this little known Swiss architect. Often understated, with a good feeling for materials, particularly concrete, his buildings are not only sympathetic to their surroundings but also demonstrate a tacit sensitivity to historical architectural practices and proportions. A total of 13 projects are examined through photographs, plans and details, including private houses built in Switzerland, the Novartis Campus Visitor Center and the School Complex Im Birch.

445 07:10 India - Glocal Architecture

India's rapidly transforming cities are accompanied by a boom for architects in all areas of building from high-rise buildings to more modest local projects.

Balkrishna Doshi, Raj Rewal, Spasm Design Architects, and Matharoo Associates, are some of the pioneering practices featured.
