Scott Porter. Scott’s thesis explores the concept of utilising the natural resources found on the Moon and Mars to construct buildings that could protect inhabitants from the harshest environments, as well as designing structures that are impossible on Earth.

Architecture in Toronto
BY SHAWN MICALLEF
@ VOL 11
ON NOV 03, 2011
Shawn Micallef analyses the often derided architecture of Toronto, and its mixture of modern and antique buildings, usually adjacent or actually encroaching on one another. He makes the argument that, while traditionally beautiful cities like Paris or Prague may retain a romanticized image, Toronto's lack of boundaries when it comes to maintaining a determined style allows it to experiment and create much livelier streets and sprawls.

ON OCT 03, 2012
Urban planner Tay Pruecksamars attempts to summarize the research and work he has done in the past year. In particular he focuses on shop houses, which are generally despised by architects and urban designers, but which can serve multiple purposes, and use their space much more efficiently than many other types of buildings. In his book he proposes solutions to problems facing modern urban designers, and takes a closer look at the shop house problem.

University of Tennessee Governor's Chair for Energy and Urbanism
BY JAMES ROSE
@ VOL 19
ON MAY 12, 2016
What can we do together that we can't do individually? This is the
question that serves to unite the efforts of UT College of Architecture
and Design, Skidmore Owings and Merrill, and ORNL as partners in
the Governor's Chair for Energy and Urbanism. Based in the
downtown FabLab and taught in conjunction with Phil Enquist and
others from SOM and ORNL, the Governor's Chair studios challenge
students to tackle tough design problems. One such challenge is the
architectural application of additive manufacturing or 3D printing. In
the spring of 2015 a graduate architecture studio was tasked with
developing an understanding of the opportunities and limitations of
this new technology. These findings foregrounded the design and
construction of the AMIE prototype. More akin to natural processes
like seashell growth than familiar construction, the process of
designing and building AMIE has created a platform for global
leadership in this emerging field for UT, SOM, and ORNL.
Pop Up Urbanism – Black Rock City
BY THOM WHITE
@ VOL 16
ON NOV 12, 2016
What happens when some friends start having a Summer solstice bonfire on the beach? Well, if you keep it up long enough you end up building the 3rd largest city in Nevada for 70,000 radical self-expressionists for one week a year, and then erasing all trace of it until the next solstice. Thom White has been participating for a number of years and shares his insider knowledge of Black Rock City and the Burning Man Festival.
Urban Vernacular in the 21st Century
BY ELAINE YOLAM KWONG
@ VOL 150
ON SEP 27, 2017
"My thesis is to rethink how to plan cities in the future and reveal that these vernacular settlements are not frozen in time."
In "Urban Vernacular in the 21st Century" from PechaKucha Tokyo Vol. 150, Architect Elaine Kwong, backed by success stories of today’s fastest-growing urban collectives in China, shares with us fresh perspectives of the term ‘vernacular’.
Elaine spent the last couple of years at Harvard University researching alternate ways of urban development that can enable people to be agents of their environments rather than passive beneficiaries or victims.
建築家のElaine Kwongさんは、ハーバード大学で数年過ごした後、社会に対し積極的に環境について伝えるため、都市開発の代替方法を研究しました。 今日の中国で急成長している都市集団の成功事例研究に裏打ちされ、Elaineさんは私たちと共に「vernacular」という言葉の新しい視点を共有したいと考えています。
