” Charles Darwin ” 1840. Chalk and water-colour drawing by George Richmond (1809-96). Today, February 12 2009, is the bi-centenary of Charles Darwin’s birth, a fact that cannot have escaped any educated reader. We’re glad to see there are no shortage of celebrations and we’ve already paid a visit to our monument in our local Charles Darwin Park. Darwin is important not only …

As their greatest and most heroic project is about to bite the dust after decades of slow demolition by neglect, Alison and Peter Smithson’s remaining body of work increasingly looks like the Cheshire cat’s grin - exactly at the point when they seem to be vanishing they are also achieving a prominence they haven’t enjoyed in decades. Irony just isn’t a strong …

It can take a heroic effort to bring an ailing city district back to life but often all it takes to spark it off is one person or one small group. Marcus Westbury’s efforts to revive Hunter Street, the ailing main street of the Australian industrial city of Newcastle (think rustbelt if you are not in Australia) have certainly been heroic. …

Why does the humble wardrobe have so much appeal as a refuge, an escape to a different world even. From children’s stories like The Chronicles of Narnia or The Indian in the Cupboard, to farces and cartoons where everything from lovers to dead mothers are hidden in them, somehow wardrobes seem to be hotbeds of activity. And it’s not all fictional. There …

If we are to save the world it is necessary for the principles of sustainability and adaptive reuse to penetrate be adopted by all strata of society. The MotoArt Mile High Bed … what more can we say? Personally, we prefer the ejector seats.

It’s the 150th anniversary of the first public exposition, to the Linnean Society, of Charles Darwin’s theory of the evolution of species by natural selection, or at least it was on July 1 and we are just running late as usual (we’ve been working on a couple of large projects that we’ll talk about later). It’s an important anniversary for us because …

The 8522 National Boulevard Complex in Culver City, California is an early (1990) work by architect Eric Owen Moss. Five adjoining 1920s and 40s warehouses have been adapted into a single building united by a new entrance and a public corridor creating varied and light filled working spaces.
