    TOKYO SWATCH BY SHIGERU BAN

    The new Swatch flagship store in Tokyo's Ginza district immediately stands out from the surrounding high-end fashion boutiques on this densely packed street. There is no doorway, no visible sign, and no glass storefront. Instead, a towering four-story void in the streetscape seems to signify a civic-scale entry. — Published 2009.0218

    EDAR IN LA

    The EDAR, a four-wheeled combination cart and sleeping unit created for use by people experiencing homelessness, is beginning to make its presence known in the greater Los Angeles area.

    Designed by Eric Lindeman and Jason Zasa while still in school at Pasadena Art Center College of Design, this modified shopping cart was their solution to a problem posed by local philanthropist Peter Samuelson: improve upon the cardboard box by designing a mobile, single-person shelter. — Published 2009.0211

    GREENBUILD IN BOSTON

    Attendees of the 2008 Greenbuild International Conference and Expo had good reason to be excited. Since the conference's debut in 2002 in Austin, Texas, when just over 4,000 people gathered to discuss the importance of sustainable design, Greenbuild has expanded dramatically. — Published 2009.0204

    YALE ART AND ARCHITECTURE BUILDING

    The Yale Art and Architecture building in New Haven, Connecticut, designed by legendary architect Paul Rudolph and completed in 1963, is now close to how its architect intended it to be, after a 45-year journey through celebration, fire, indifference, and abuse.

    One of the most iconic architecture school buildings in the world, the object of a love-hate relationship with those who have known it, has found new repose amid a complex mixture of adoration, restoration, and exhilaration. — Published 2009.0204

    BUILD BOSTON 2008

    The 2008 Build Boston convention and trade show seemed, on the surface, to be its usual hustling, bustling, active marketplace of hundreds of educational workshops, dozens of receptions and affiliated conferences, and a convention floor full of product booths centered around the design and construction industry. — Published 2009.0128

    VERTICAL GARDENS

    About 15 years ago, I met an uncommon and fascinating man. His solid reputation as a scientist and researcher preceded him, a living encyclopedia on plants worldwide — growing in severe and difficult conditions, deprived of light in the shadows of tall trees (where, in contrast to the old saying, there is always something growing), or deprived of nutrients among rocks... Here was a man who was familiar with strolling the Amazon forests and riding under the canopy on a raft. — Published 2009.0121

    AUTODESK UNIVERSITY #16

    In his keynote speech for Autodesk University 2008, Tom Kelley noted that the more time you spend in an industry, the more expertise you develop; but at the same time, you begin to screen out information. He suggested that in these times of economic downturn, companies should take a more anthropological view and look beyond what they already know. Kelley quoted Marcel Proust: "The real act of discovery consists not in finding new lands, but in seeing with new eyes." — Published 2009.0121

    DELFT MEDIA LIBRARY

    Durability through transformation. That was the architects' vision for the DOK Library Concept Center in Delft, the Netherlands.

    The multimedia library occupies part of the overhauled Hoogovenpand, a 1970s mixed-use building facing a public square. Architects Liesbeth van der Pol of Dok architects (no relation) and Aat Vos of Aequo BV revitalized the gloomy building, creating the library space among existing commercial and residential functions. — Published 2009.0128
