1. How does one build a vision for a sustainable city? How can we design for 2050? Can user comfort in streets and plazas be improved? How can the findings be incorporated in the built environment? Here Master of Architecture candidates Greg Knobloch and Hanxiao Liu offer up their proposal for a future urban environment on the former Berlin Tegal Airport site as part of the 704 Integrated Design Studio with Martin Haas, haas.cook.zemmrich, and Jackie Wong, SOM.

  2. Warm-up to Wendy!

    Wendy does not play the typical architecture game of ecological apology - instead she is pro-active. That is why Wendy is composed of fabric treated with a ground breaking titania nanoparticle spray to neutralize airborne pollutants. During the summer of 2012 Wendy will clean the air to an equivalent of taking 260 cars off the road. The courtyard at MoMA PS1 will be activated by tools like shade, wind, rain, music, and visual identity to reach beyond her envelope. Wendy's spiky arms reach out with micro-programs like blasts of cool air, music, water canons and mists to create social zones throughout the courtyard.

    Come visit Wendy in the courtyard of MoMA Ps1 this summer!

  4. In which medium can we best express architectural representation? How do time, notation, and score become integrated to present an architectural project that can be more than compositional – to be processional? In Arch. 521 Visual Studies, led by Assistant Professor Simon Kim, Active Drawing became a space of inquiry or a diagrammatic interface. Shown: Video of Found Objects gone weird, by Alyssa Olson. design.upenn.edu/architecture
