Contemporary Architect, Modern

From quaint towns to bustling cities, today’s architectural landscape features a stunning mix of both old and new. From homes designed and built over a century ago to those being created today, the many faces of residential architecture represented in almost any given neighborhood enhance and contribute to the unique and diverse characteristics that define the places these homes reside in. Traditional homes from the early years of the last century, 1940s era bungalows, post WW-II mid-century moderns, large Tuscan style mansions, small early American…

List of different studies

Our first distinction is whether the study is analytic or non-analytic. A non-analytic or descriptive study does not try to quantify the relationship but tries to give us a picture of what is happening in a population, e.g., the prevalence, incidence, or experience of a group. Descriptive studies include case reports, case-series, qualitative studies and surveys (cross-sectional) studies, which measure the frequency of several factors, and hence the size of the problem. They may sometimes also include analytic work (comparing factors “” see below)…

Architectural Firms

Every year, we approach the ARCHITECT 50 with the same premise. It may be impossible to capture every way in which a firm can excel, have a significant impact on its community, mentor a younger generation of designers, and help save the planet with its energy-efficient buildings. But we nevertheless strive to compile a list that recognizes firms small and large, who are making their mark beyond just their ability to run a financially lucrative business. This year, we added a few new data points, capturing information on how firms are helping their…

Best UK Architects

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, it is often said, and never more so than when it comes to buildings. Thirty buildings have been nominated by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) for its inaugural RIBA International Prize but some people will consider them ugly. They range from a kindergarten in Vietnam to a mosque in Turkey and more than 20 countries are represented on the list. Every year RIBA presents the Stirling Prize for the best building in the UK and last year it was awarded to Burntwood School in Wandsworth, south London…

Park Hill Flats

A bridge too far: Jason, next to the neon version of his original message. Photograph: Murdo Macleod for the Observer One spring day in 2001 a tall man walked into Sheffield’s Park Hill flats and along a street in the sky. He strode past the brutalist flanks, out on to the footbridge. He thought: this’ll do. Jason didn’t look down; he gets vertigo and he was 13 storeys up. He leaned over in his yellow Puffa jacket and sprayed her name. “Clare” came out haphazardly and “Middleton” hit the ledge. He planned to take her to the Roxy on the facing hill…

London style House

London plays home to an incredible and eclectic range of architectural styles, formed as the city grew up – its diverse social and cultural evolution reflected in the architectural patterns and designs you can see today. London developed over the years in a much more ad hoc style than many other major cities, both in the UK and the World, creating a sort of mishmash of building styles, materials and shapes. Many of these styles are reflections of monarchic periods, and demonstrate the fashions, technological trends, and social organisation of the…

Traditional Irish House

The Washington Square Harp and Shamrock Orchestra at New York University is led by Professor Mick Moloney. The Orchestra plays traditional Irish music with a focus on older tunes, tunes with New York City history, and tunes with fun stories attached. Members learn by ear from Prof. Mick Moloney, as well as NYU Ethnomusicology PhD candidates and other experienced musicians. The orchestra name is reminiscent of Irish-American dance bands of the early 1900s, such as Dan Sullivan s Shamrock Band, or Pat Roche s Harp and Shamrock Orchestra, or even Erin…
