Farshid Moussavi and ACTAR have released the first follow-up to 2006's hugely popular The Function of OrnamentBuy astelin without prescription, ,
Farshid Moussavi [now formerly of FOA], Harvard's GSD, and Actar have responded to the widespread success of 2006's The Function of Ornament - a self-described " graphic guide to ornaments in the twentieth century" - with a second volume entitled The Function of Form. Buy astelin lowest price, Over two and a half times the size of The Function of Ornament, in FOF Moussavi sets out to investigate the complex relationship established between form and function in modern / contemporary design - using the book's introduction to both discuss various perceived historical relationships between form and function, cheap astelin, Price of astelin, and then to [essentially] argue that the actual relationship between form and function in architecture is in conflict with the dualistic view of modernism in the 20th century.
[Take that, online astelin, Discount astelin without prescription, Mies.]
The vast majority of the book is then organized into chapters by material/structural system - with each chapter investigating the variations possible within each system. This is achieved by first identifying the 'base units' of the system to be explored, order discount astelin, Buy astelin online australia, and then tessellating those base units in the horizontal, vertical, astelin buy drug, Find astelin on internet, and curved directions. For instance, canadian astelin, Order astelin cheap online, the first chapter looks at grids and frames - establishing the base unit of one-way frames as 'composed of a rectangular grid of columns supporting a pair of primary, parallel beams along the column lines which in turn support secondary beams that span between them at much closer intervals than the centers of the columns', cheap astelin in usa. This 'base unit' is then tessellated in the 3 directions, creating various permutations of the one-way frame - which are further organized by spatial affect, buy astelin without prescription. Fda approved astelin, S.R. Crown Hall at IIT by Mies is the first example given in the book, astelin buy, Online pharmacy astelin, representing a one-way frame tessellated horizontally - and having the spatial affects of 'openness, lightness, buy astelin online cheap, No prescription astelin, freedom, horizontality, astelin prices, Buy astelin no rx, and specularity'.
The book goes on to investigate hundreds of variations of systems and their base units - providing a unique view of the relationship of form and spatial sensations and affects, astelin medicine. FOF takes an in-depth look at the physical and atmospheric affects of each system, investigating the sometimes subtle differences in affects produced. The forms produced by each tessellated base unit are given a 2-page spread, with a simple 3d image meant to convey the spatial affects of the particular system on the left page - and a detailed description of the various components, including plan and axonometric drawings, on the right page.
A must-have for any designer, The Function of Form makes for a tremendous resource as a reference when investigating possible forms/structural systems for a given project - allowing readers to quickly compare spatial quality and affects of various systems, while also providing reasonably in-depth explanations as to how these qualities are achieved by the different systems.

Buy vermox without prescription, The architecture is covered with a wall in which holes are cut. The shape of the holes resembles a trunk, no prescription vermox, Vermox sale, leaves, a root and bulbs, find vermox. Vermox malaysia, It also can be seen as clouds floating over the trees. The concrete shape which is based on nature turns into a hollow cave: light, order vermox in canada, Buy vermox on internet, and sunbeams filtered through trees.
It's been a minute now since our last post on our current featured 'Ninjas of the Month' - EASERNdesign. Keeping the series alive, buy discount vermox, Canada vermox, here is their Villa Saitan project - an 11 unit studio-apartment complex in Kyoto, Japan, vermox information.
One of the major factors driving the project was EASTERNdesign's desire to create a structure that was different from the repetitive, impersonal nature of a 'typical' apartment building, buy vermox without prescription. Vermox bangkok, The goal was to wrap the units with a continuous facade that would give the appearance of one unified home. This was achieved by cutting through the concrete walls in a nature-inspired root/trunk/leaf pattern, cheapest generic vermox online. Buy vermox low price, Behind this think wall the units are enclosed by simple glass walls on the exterior - with the concrete walls serving as sun-shading and privacy device.
This concrete shell is then covered in some kind of OSB or fiberboard, vermox medicine, Vermox generic, softening the forms by giving them an almost fabric-like aesthetic.
Buy vermox without prescription, Another noteworthy aspect of the project's layout is the public open space carved out of the ground floor of the building - linking the two sides of the site with a covered/protected external passageway. This inner pathway also connects to the owner's yard, no rx vermox, Compare vermox prices, allowing him direct access to the apartment building's facilities [which he manages himself].
What does the name Saitan mean, buy vermox from india. Order cheap vermox online, Tan is the color of the shrine gates, vermilion, cheap vermox overnight delivery. Vermox online cheap, It is also the color of pale red granite stone. Vermilion will not be weathered, buy vermox without prescription. It is said that vermillion is a sacred color and it used to be applied on serving dishes and bow and arrow to make them holy ones. Sai means variety of beautiful colors that make something more attractive.
What I really don't understand is what exactly is going on with the facade shown above. I kind of like it for whatever reason, so it isn't that - I just don't see how it ties in to the curvy, nature-inspired front. It makes for an odd dichotomy that seems to give the building a kind of multiple personality disorder.
EASTERN gives additional reason for the plant-like design of the concrete facade:
Buy vermox without prescription, This land was once the site of NIshihachijo-palace, which was the residence of a hero of the Japanese classical tragedy, 'Tale of Heike'. It was a stage of rise and fall of a clan in the 12th century. Such an old and sad memory is cherished and still told among the people of this neighborhood.
The collective housing that is built on such a historical place should not be seen as an average apartment house. Such notion occurred to us, which might have led us to the idea of an 'immortal tree.'
We, therefore, designed a building which does not take vaguely a shape of a tree, but rather an intense and massive form with a tint of movement.

- lastly, don?t miss myninjaplease.com?s two newest features:A Dozen, and The Industry. Our ninja Kookiecrumbles has been hard at work interviewing artists and featuring their work as well as speaking to industry insider . coming up with some great content that should not be slept on.
Chinese companies have been caught illegally stretching steel re-bar, thus thinning the cross-section to unsafe diameters. Must be great when an earthquake hits. I mean, this is pretty terrible... (not that a US company wouldn't do the same)
Damn near everyone with an architecture blog that has been read by more than 5 people has been plagiarized - probably by another blog or site that is much larger and established. I won't name names of who has ripped off AMNP - but they were the kind of sites that could afford to pay me for my content, no doubt. Arch Record, however, has no qualms calling someone out...
The symbolism of the skyscraper has changed very little - if at all - since 9/11, argues LA Times architecture critic Christopher Hawthorne. I would contend that in terms of the WTC it has changed somewhat, but in no way for the better.
The September issue is Scientific American is devoted to cities - and has one of AMNP's favorite authors, William Gibson! I'm looking forward to the issue, but until then check out the features being released online - like this interview with the author of such novels as Neuromancer and Pattern Language.
Wow, I really hope to one day cool-out in a space hotel of some sort - but I hope that sometime in my lifetime they evolve into something iller / cheaper /need less training than what the Russians are planning. Still, this is pretty awesome - see what I'm talking about after the link.
I basically think that these Ayn Rand followers are a bunch of crazies (and assholes, to a certain extent), but I actually wish Peter Thiel luck and success in his creating man-made, floating independent nation states. Then all these libertarians can go read Atlas Shrugged in their own country and leave us the F alone.
While this article on Gaudi over at the Atlantic starts out with some typical BS about 'trends' in architecture in the 21st century (I don't think Gehry and the like are really 'trending', at least not as built projects), it is a nice little write up on Gaudi that reminds us he was ill.
AIA Consensus Construction Forecast is predicting continued declines in spending for non-residential and commercial projects through the end of the year, with a possible modest recovery in 2012. Super - we might maybe see a little bit of improvement - which will probably actually simply get us back to where we are now - sometime next year. Something to look forward to.
Eh, maybe - there certainly aren't people lining up to save them. My question remains 'should the suburbs be saved'? At least, should they be saved in their current form? They seem like mostly a failed experiment - areas that actually embody what the suburbs are supposedly about are usually considered 'urban' (or at least semi-urban). I'm thinking Dorchester (Boston), for instance, as it's where I'm typing this post...
Adobe is launching a preview of Edge - basically a tool allowing web designers to ditch Flash and move to an HTML 5 future. As much as I hate to agree with Steve Jobs being super evil, Flash is pretty terrible and has to go. Sure, it revolutionized the web in certain ways, but it's time is done - time for us to move on to something faster and less clunky. And something that actually functions properly on touch screens / handheld devices.
These ninjas were arrested for building an awesome monster - thing out of shipping pallets and skateboards on top of a Brooklyn warehouse? My ninjas, please - this is a sad sad world that we live in. And these guys are ninjas.
We've all known for a minute now that the architecture and sculpture of ancient Greece wasn't left as natural stone, but was painted in technicolor - and ultraviolet light is know giving us a better idea of just what these familiar ruins and works of art really looked like. Makes our copies of Ancient Greece's architecture look like they're in need of a paint job, no?

There is already an existing mosque less than a mile from Ground Zero - only 686 feet from the proposed Cordoba Center. Is this existing mosque insulting to the WTC site? Could Cordoba move the 686 feet and be okay? Oh no, wait - I'm trying to understand this from a rational standpoint, which is obviously naive of me...
Anyone else think that Santiago Calatrava's design for the redevelopment of the Denver International Airport's South Terminal is a little ridiculous looking? I mean, definitely not his best work. The interiors look fine, I suppose - very 'Calatrava goes to the airport' with the white trusses. But from what the renderings show the exterior isn't looking so hot...
I've been hating on fancy architectural renderings since before I even started AMNP - now people are asking if the actual buildings can ever live up to the photoshopped hype. For real? That we're so enamored with the imagery that we don't appreciate the final result suggests some pretty serious issues...
