Today’s archidose #1008

Here's a photo of the Amager Resource Center (2017) in Copenhagen, Denmark, by BIG – Bjarke Ingels Group. The photo, by Jeff Reuben, is looking toward the waste-to-energy plant from Christiania. Although the plant is obviously functioning, the ski slope – Copenhill – that sits atop it won't be complete until later this year.

Today’s archidose #1002: ‘100 Years, 100 Landscape Designs’

Although it's been more than a few months since my last book, 100 Years, 100 Landscape Designs, came out last fall, I'd yet to put together a "Today's archidose" on the book as I did with 100 Years, 100 Buildings in a more timely manner the year before. Like its predecessor, the book highlights 100 projects, in this case parks, gardens, and other landscape designs built over the last 100 years, with the gimmick that there is only one building per year based on completion or some other important milestone (a trickier thing to nail down with landscapes than buildings). Here are photos of 25 landscapes culled from the archidose Flickr pool (and some of my own that I just uploaded to Flickr) to give a taste of what's in the book. For more information on 100 Years, 100 Landscape Designs, which is published by Prestel, check out

Yesterday, Balkrishna Doshi was named the 2018 laureate of the Pritzker Architecture Prize. So today I'm posting photos of a few of his projects, all located in Ahmedabad, India, and all photographed by Nicholas Iyadurai.

Today’s archidose #989

Here are some photos of the Vauxhall Cross (2005) bus station and transport interchange in Lambeth, London by Arup Associates. (Photos: Artur Salisz.)

Although barely twelve years old, last month the Lambeth Council approved plans to demolish the station in favor of "new transport interchange and public realm improvements" designed by 5th Studio. The Architects' Journal (subscription) has more information on the proposed development plans and the demolition of the distinctive building.
