CyArk, a non profit organization founded in 2003, has been working to digitally record, archive, and share immersive sites with people online. Through 3D models, Street Views, and <a href="https://archinect.com/news/tag/92794/virtual-reality" rel="nofollow" >VR</a>, viewers can experience these important sites in new and relevant ways. So far, the group has 26 sites that are digitally preserved and downloadable.&nbsp;

“No architect today is capable of buildings like Luis Barragán’s”

The sensual and autobiographical qualities of the house Mexican architect Luis Barragán built for himself are rarely found in today’s buildings, says Aaron Betsky. Read more

NYC’s Classic Car Club Gets a New Home at Pier 76

                                Whether you want to have access to a fleet of classic cars or you just want to hang and be near them, the <a href="https://classiccarclubmanhattan.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Classic Car Club</a> offers that and then some. Founded in London in 1995, the club landed in Manhattan&#8217;s Soho neighborhood in 2005 upon arrival in the States before recently needing a new place to call home. CCC enlisted one of their very own members, architect Marc Thorpe of <a href="https://www.marcthorpedesign.com/"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Marc Thorpe Design</a>, to design the new club, which now takes up residence at Pier 76 by the Hudson River.
The CCC offers classic auto-loving New Yorkers the unique opportunity to drive their lot of cars on top of access to their new car-inspired club. While the 40,000-square-foot club gives nod to car culture, Thorpe does it in a subtle and intriguing way that makes the industrial space feel welcoming and sophisticated. Inside you’ll find an 8,000-square-foot auto

Text description provided by the architects. This collaboration between Jim Jennings Architecture, LINEOFFICE Architecture and Martha Angus utilizes a factory fabricated steel frame to create a simple yet elegant 3,000 SF getaway in the California desert. The frame was pioneered by Blue-Sky Building systems and utilizes factory fabricated steel components to create a bolted moment-resistive frame. The benefit of the frame is twofold: it increases the speed of construction and removes the need for lateral force resisting shear walls. This provides a great deal of design flexibility in the earthquake prone Coachella Valley.
