The Challenges of Mid-Rise Construction
BY ROLAND ROM COLTHOFF
@ VOL 26
ON SEP 27, 2013
Roland Rom Colthoff of RAW design explains the opportunities and challeges of new mid-rise construction in Toronto. Mid-rise construction is an investment by purchasers in not only a condo, but also a neighborhood. This affirmation of the importance of the street and urban environment as a place to live, shop, and work has led to the design of unusually shaped and unique interior environments and exceptionally generous outdoor spaces.
Prior to Construction

Kunstenaar Leonard van Munster maakt onverwachte kunst op onverwachte plaatsen. Een boomhut op het dak van een museum of een oase in een troosteloze tunnel. Als het beweegt is het helemaal mooi. Hij is begonnen met pluche beesten en hij maakt nu een bewegend kunstwerk van zichzelf. Meestal hebben ze een korte bezichtigingsduur, waarna enkel de herinnering blijft.

Juho Viitasalo shares Construction 2000, a unique geometric steel sculpture in Helsinki, Finland. Its most eye catching feature is a 600 kg pyramid that seems to float in air without any support. This 10 meter tall physics defying structure has stood since 1982 and is truly unique in the world. However it is still somewhat unknown. Construction 2000 was designed by Markku Viitasalo and now his son wants to take the design to the world out of the confines of the office block where it stands in Helsinki.

Greenspan Construction - Building Benton Harbor's First Container Home
BY VICKI FRANKS
@ VOL 6
ON SEP 16, 2016
Vicki Franks, with her husband Shane, built Benton Harbor's first container home in 2015, a beautiful space that will make us rethink what's possible in real estate. The inspiration to do this hit at the crossroads of a trip she took and the time the couple snagged an outrageously affordable lot in Benton Harbor. Vicki's PK is eye candy for design lover's!

The inspiration of my work came as I went full circle with my "textile heritage", watching my yemenite grandmother wearing her authentic clothing pieces in modern day Israel.
These yemenite clothing pieces inspired by the local architecture have a strong sense of time and place. In my creation and research I am trying to express a sense of roots in a world with no boundaries. UNDER/CONSTRUCTION is a fashion brand inspired by the mix between urban and tribal elements.

She has had the great fortune to have had many years working in the field of heritage identification and management, in both public and private sector roles. In New Zealand she has held senior heritage positions at the Department of Conservation and Opus International Consultants, and currently works for Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga as a heritage advisor covering Canterbury and the West Coast.

She studied history, art history and philosophy the University of Canterbury, museum studies at Massey University and, as a mid-career professional, has had the joy of hands-on heritage conservation training in Italy and China.
In this PechaKucha Robyn will enlighten us about a former ‘top secret’ World War Two construction effort in the Selwyn District.
NetZero houses: How we can adopt forward thinking building construction
BY LUSINE GHUSHCHYAN
@ VOL 32
ON JUL 10, 2019
Lusine Ghushchyan will present under the title“NetZero houses: How we can adopt forward-thinking building construction”.
The growing concerns about rising energy prices, energy independence and the impact of climate change show buildings to be as the primary energy consumer in Armenia. This fact emphasizes the importance of targeting building use as key to decreasing the nation’s energy consumption. Currently, there are a small number of NetZero buildings in the world and Armenia has a huge potential to adopt these strategies to decrease energy use and reduce dependence on fossil fuel.
