New robotically furnished apartments being tested for space efficiency

Yes. The answer, of course, is robots. 
Inside a model studio apartment at the Eugene, an 844-unit building on Manhattan’s West Side, sits a blocky, Swiss Army-knife-like unit that looks a little like two-sided armoire with lots of compartments. It’s called Ori. Ori runs on a track and can be activated by voice command...



Companies like Ori and Bumblebee Spaces are testing out robotic furniture in major cities where living space is limited. The Ori system, currently testing robotically-furnished apartments in Manhattan, operates through voice command or your smartphone app moving the modular unit along a floor track. Bumblebee Spaces, testing spaces in Seattle and San Francisco, takes interior robotics to the ceiling by moving furniture vertically from the floor to being stored above your head.

Climate of Dissent competition winners announced by Studio Bleak

            <img src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/qo/qo2k9fcy2jzlqd8l.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=1200" border="0" />Studio Bleak has announced the winners of their&nbsp;<a href="http://bustler.net/competitions/5982/climate-of-dissent-protest-design-challenge" >Climate of Dissent - Protest Design Challenge</a>, which asked architects to design like activists. The competition began as a result of our growing global warming crisis with a charge that architecture should do more to respond to this encompassing issue.&nbsp;Drawing inspiration from political and cultural dissent erupting over around the world, the challenge aimed to bring architectural design into an act of protest to address these climate problems. The brief gave no site, budget, or timeline parameters to participants.&nbsp;
The jury, consisting of creative activists, architects, and educators, chose three speculative prizes and one practical prize which will be developed and implemented as a realized project. Take a look at the winning projects below:  1st Prize - Frozen Relic: Arctic Dissent

Brad Pitt’s Make It Right Foundation sues architect for flawed designs

            <img src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/ca/ca8a9cafffeb5d782639a7802e5354bc.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=1200" border="0" /><em>Actor Brad Pitt&rsquo;s Make It Right Foundation has sued the architect of scores of homes the nonprofit sold to Lower 9th Ward residents who lost everything to Hurricane Katrina.
Make it Right itself was recently sued over the homes’ shoddy construction. The new lawsuit against local architect John C. Williams was filed Tuesday in Orleans Parish Civil District Court.



Brad Pitt's Make It Right Foundation, recently facing a lawsuit of their own on delivering poorly constructed homes, is now suing John C. Williams, the architect responsible for many of the homes sold to New Orleans residents. Repairs to the water damaged homes caused by flawed designs could cost over $20 million. 

Researchers propose concrete mixed with plastic for India’s rapid construction

            <img src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/31/31d10429b72fc1663dfc8549bbceb82a.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=1200" border="0" /><em><p>Researchers say India could alleviate its growing shortage of sand, which is needed for concrete, by partially replacing it with waste plastic.
Research carried out by the University of Bath in the UK, and India’s Goa Engineering College, has found that concrete made with an admixture of ground-up plastic bottles is almost as strong as traditional concrete mixtures.



With India's rapid urbanization, concrete construction has dramatically increased causing a shortage in the country's sand used to make the building material. Mixing in plastic bottles focuses on solving both the issue of a sand shortage and the accumulation plastic waste on the streets. While the plastic added material is not as strong as concrete, it could still be used for lower tech functions such as paving slabs.

Brutalist collection of vintage postcards highlight iconic Eastern Bloc architecture

Showcasing brutalist hotels, futurist TV towers, and bold concrete tower blocks, each image is a snapshot of the transformative decades between 1960 and 1990: from the endless optimism of Khrushchev's Thaw, to the closing years of the Cold War.

These Soviet Union postcards have been collected as part of a book project, Brutal Bloc Postcards, featuring some of the most iconic brutalist landmarks within the Eastern Bloc. Many of these structures are now abandoned, derelict, or completely gone. Take a look at this unique glimpse into the past:

Olafur Eliasson links his breakdancing years to spatial thinking in art and architecture

            <img src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/4f/4ffadc746e2ad8cc761c8af6418e23ab.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=1200" border="0" /><em>&ldquo;As a teenager I became very interested in street-dance culture and was active on the Scandinavian breakdance scene,&rdquo; the artist Olafur Eliasson tells his friend and collaborator Anna Engberg-Pedersen in our new book, Olafur Eliasson Experience.
This admission is a slight understatement. In 1984, the nascent artist’s three-man troupe, Harlem Gun Crew, actually won the Scandinavian breakdancing championships.



Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson discusses his teenage breakdancing years in relation to how he thinks of architecture and space. Eliasson links the body awareness of moving through an urban landscape in dance to his development in spatial thinking as an artistic practice in design and architecture.
