For starters, rather than only booking acts that have a big draw, the festival runners make a point of introducing their audience to new acts like Israeli pop star group A-WA or soul icon Charles Bradley. In addition, all artists at the festival play at least twice so audiences have multiple chances to see their acts. The festival has largely foregone corporate sponsorship with exceptions for companies like Continue reading "Pickathon Festival stage, designed by PSU students, will be turned into transitional housing when the music stops"

Held in the woods nearby <a href="http://archinect.com/news/tag/3435/portland" rel="nofollow" >Portland, Oregon</a>, the now annual summer event has grown into a sellout affair with lineups including Beach House, Angel Olsen, and Mac DeMarco. Though the festival has grown, the three-day event nicknamed "Portland's littlest big festival" has maintained its grassroots nature and continues to set itself apart from its festival competitors.

[Tours at DredgeFest Great Lakes, summer 2015.] Sediment is critical to the present and future health of California’s estuarine Bay-Delta. It is the physical infrastructure that underlies its many ecologies and economies. As the 2015 State of the Estuary report notes, “Like fresh water, sediment is a precious resource that is essential for keeping the Estuary healthy”. But the Bay-Delta currently has a shortage of this land making resource. Upriver dams have trapped sediment, while levees, bank armoring, and river straightening have cut off wetlands and floodplains while accelerating the movement of the remaining sediment, preventing it from building substrate. The
[Photo by BUILD LLC] This post continues our two-part analysis of the development strategies we gleaned from the Park Modern building, which was completed in 2007. Part One was aimed at the planning and programming of the Park Modern and similar multi-family, mixed-use projects, while today’s will focus on the specifics of building design and regulatory agency systems. 6. Be a building code whisperer.
Building codes can be nebulous and complicated. At the same time, how the specifics of the code are interpreted have wide ranging impacts on the design, the construction, and the pricing of a project. Designing a multi-family, mixed-use building requires much more than a basic review and application of the building code. Standard prescriptions and template solutions not only overlook design opportunities, but they can be costly to the bottom line. An effective use of the building code involves scrutinizing key provisions, questioning the code when

Christian Kerez – House with one wall, Zurich 2007. The central dividing wall separates the project to a two family home, and is the only solid wall in the building. It is never punctured or penetrated, and contorts on each level to adjust for structural considerations and the program on either side of the house (as seen in the model).
