Young Architects In Competitions

Now available in open access:

A well-documented statement in support of the re-inclusion of younger firms of designers in architecture competitions.

When Competitions and a New Generation of Ideas Elevate Architectural Quality

by Jean-Pierre Chupin and G. Stanley Collyer
published by Potential Architecture Books, Montreal, Canada, 2020. ISBN 9781988962047

Young Architects In Competitions Book

This comprehensive new book written by Jean-Pierre Chupin (Canadian Competitions Catalogue) and Stanley Collyer (COMPETITIONS) highlights for the crucial role competitions have played in fostering the careers of young architects, and makes an argument against the trend of invited competitions and RFQs. The authors take an in-depth look at past competitions won by young architects and planners, and survey the state of competitions through the world on a region by region basis. The end result is a compelling argument for an inclusive approach to conducting international design competitions.

Automatic for the City: Designing for the Age of the Driverless Car

Are our cities ready for the age of the driverless car? New RIBA title Automatic for the City sets the course

How will automated vehicles change our lives? What opportunities and challenges will they offer? How can we make our cities safe and coherent for this new technology?

As we approach a new stage in our urban transformation, Automatic for the City: Designing for the Age of the Driverless Car prepares urban designers and city planners for the introduction of connected autonomous vehicles (CAVs), to our streets.

Driverless cars are set to become a common feature in the wealthiest urban environments as early as within the next 10 years, authors Riccardo Bobisse and Andrea Pavia predict.

“With the revolution that was the private automobile after World War One, for example, our cites underwent an unprecedented transformation,” says urban designer Riccardo Bobisse. “We are now approaching a similar revolution, for which we must be prepared.”

As a result of this prognosis, practical guidance on transformative city-wide design principles are illustrated in the book via two in-depth case studies focusing on two sprawling metropolises: London and Los Angeles.

Andrea Pavia explains more about the choice of case studies: “The two exemplified cities were chosen as emblematic urban examples within Western society, but, while the effect of cars on urban form is radical, each displays a very different outcome when faced with the car paradigm.”

Using the analogy of the city as a human body, with its mutation and revolution throughout time and history, this timely book envisions ways in which cars and CAVs can coexist, providing an imaginative and engaging insight into the future of our urban environments. It is a reflection on the relationship between new technologies and urbanism, as well as an agile urban design manual, highly illustrated with images and masterplans of spatial arrangements enabled by new technologies.

Essential reading for architects, urban designers, city planners, transport planners and policy makers who are looking to the future, Automatic for the city informs, inspires and encourages industry professionals to design for what could be just around the corner.

Automatic for the city is available now from RIBA

Riccardo Bobisse and Andrea Pavia are urban designers based in London and Frankfurt respectively.

While both working with Steer, their research focuses on Connected Autonomous Vehicles (CAV).

They now specialise in master-planning, as well as urban and public realm design projects, with a specific focus on mixed urban schemes and town centre revitalisation strategies.

Projects and Their Consequences book by Reiser + Umemoto Jesse Reiser and Nanako Umemoto

Autobiographical, technical, prophetic, and meditative, Reiser + Umemoto’s Projects and Their Consequences (May 2019, $60) is a genre-blending monograph presenting 30 years of work by their firm, RUR Architecture, offering a unique view of the intersections of the visionary, the speculative, and the practical work of architecture and its relationship to art and culture. The book presents 15 of the firm’s key projects, tracing innovative, multidisciplinary investigations of form, structure, technique, and planning.

Projects and Their Consequences balances incisive interviews and essays with more than 400 original drawings, collages, and paintings. Multiple, overlapping perspectives describe projects that vary widely in scope and approach: large-scale studies of infrastructure for the East River corridor and Hudson Yards areas in Manhattan and the Alishan Railway in Taiwan, as well as schemes for cultural institutions, including New York’s New Museum, the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh, and the University of Applied Arts Vienna.

Carefully conceived small-scale projects are documented as well, such as an imaginative water garden and the Sagaponack House; and thought-provoking “textual projects,” narrative works that blur the boundaries of art and architecture, such as a meditation on language in the context of the Globe Theater.

Large in format and beautifully designed, Projects and Their Consequences is a necessary volume for architects and those interested in the intersection of architecture, art, and culture.

About the Authors Jesse Reiser and Nanako Umemoto are the founders and principals of RUR Architecture. Reiser is a professor of architecture at Princeton University, and Umemoto has taught at numerous institutions, including Columbia University, the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Virginia, and Washington University in St. Louis. They are the authors of Atlas of Novel Tectonics (2006), also published by Princeton Architectural Press.

Design yourself happy this Blue Monday, says architect and author Ben Channon

As the festive period officially comes to an end, and Blue Monday rolls around, Ben Channon, architect and author of ‘Happy by Design: A Guide to Architecture and Mental Wellbeing’, gives his easy-to-follow interior design tips to stave off the January blues.

Blue Monday, which falls on the third Monday of January, is widely hailed as the most melancholy day of the year when a ruthless combination of gloomy weather and return back to work gets the better of the Great British public.

As sadness levels peak, Ben Channon, an associate and wellbeing ambassador at award-winning practice Assael Architecture, believes there are a variety of easy design tips we can follow to create happier homes, offices and outlooks.

Channon’s book ‘Happy by Design’, which was inspired by his own experience with mental health, explores how architecture affects our mental wellbeing and how better design can improve it. The design tips and tricks outlined in the book are applicable to anyone interested in optimising spaces to maximise happiness, whether they are a renter, homeowner or property developer.

In order to shake off the January blues, Channon recommends the following design tips for home and office:

Brighten up your spaces: “January is usually dark, wet and gloomy, with limited hours of sunlight, which can cause havoc on our mental health. At the same time, the harsh white luminescent glow of office strip lighting can have a negative impact on how we feel. In order to find a happy medium and squeeze in as much vitamin D as possible, be sure to open your blinds and curtains every morning to maximise the light getting into a space and see if you can alter the artificial lighting in your home and office to softer, more ambient shades. A light box can also work wonders!”

Bring the outside in: “Not only do plants give us oxygen to breathe, they are also proven to make us happier by reducing concentrations of the stress hormone cortisol in our brains. January is the perfect time to up your plant game, both at home and in the office. Caring and nurturing for a plant is shown to boost our moods, speed up the recovery times of illnesses and their presence improves the surrounding air quality.”

Get creative with your spaces: “When January rolls around and we return to work, the realities and stresses of the year ahead can seem almost overwhelming.” said Channon. “One possible remedy to this is to take back control of decorating a space, be it through rearranging your bedroom furniture or completely redecorating a room. By doing this you are controlling and personalising your immediate environment, which can help lower stress levels and remind us that we do in fact have the power to make positive changes in our lives.”

Remove the opportunity for excuses: “New year, new me, right? But this time, you’re actually going to start exercising! While you may not have the time or energy to put that new gym membership to use, it’s important to curate your personal spaces to remove any opportunity to not exercise. You can create little nudges in your home, like ensuring your bike is by the front door and easily accessible, or you can dedicate a corner of your space specifically to exercise.”

Maximise storage to reduce most clutter: “Your mum was right: a clean and tidy space can reduce stress and make us happier. In order to start the year in a state of zen, invest in extra storage to help declutter your spaces at home and at work. A tidy space can promote a sense of calm and, in an office environment, can help boost your productivity by removing unnecessary distractions. I’d recommend Netflix’s new ‘Tidying Up With Marie Kondo’ if you’re looking for inspiration!”

In ‘Happy by Design’, each of the seven chapters covers a specific aspect of design that needs to be considered to create happier spaces, such as light, comfort, control, nature, aesthetics, activity and psychology.

Featured Reviews of Happy by Design:

Shawn Achor, NYTimes bestselling author of The Happiness Advantage and Big Potential

‘Colorful, inventive and forward-looking, Channon takes happiness research into an important new domain with Happy by Design to help us rethink and design environments that help make the choice of happiness an easier and more sustainable one.’

Kevin McCloud, HAB

‘Anyone building a house should read this first. As should every single developer.’

David Byers, assistant property editor, The Times

‘In this book, Channon attempts to revolutionise the places we live, calling for radical new approaches to lighting, ventilation, noise-proofing and outside space.’

Piers Taylor, architect

‘Ben’s book shows us how deeply affected by our environments we are and describes the important steps and considerations needed to design effectively for wellbeing. This book demonstrates comprehensively the value added by architects to buildings through good design. Ignore these lessons at your peril.’

The Estate House Re-Designed

‘The Estate House Re-Designed’ to be published by Springer in the Spring.

Sully, Anthony, SullyDesigns, Ely, UK

The Estate House Redesigned Details a vision for how new housing developments can be both more environmentally sustainable and responsive to human needs Demonstrates how new ‘green’ technologies and prefabrication techniques can revolutionize house building Provides technical guidance, which is already being put into practice in the design of a prototype house by a builder/manufacturer The book demonstrates how new houses can be designed to be more sustainable and ergonomic.

Specifically, it describes a prototype building that could be constructed in the near future. Responding to some of the poor standards of mass estate housing in the UK and its out-of-date space standards, it contributes towards improving the current status quo by describing a house design, including drawings, that can compete with today’s mass housing.

The author examines the traditional geometrical reliance on the square in the design of houses and the planning of housing estates and promotes instead the adoption of polygonal forms. This is explained using geometric analysis, diagrams and references to existing housing.

These concepts have been developed with reference to technical literature from various companies with one company interested in taking it further. Providing a novel and up-to-date design concept, this book is of value to practitioners and researchers looking to improve the standard of mass housing in the UK. It is also of interest to anyone wishing to build their own house and to manufacturers wanting to move into modern housing technology.

20/20 Visions Book

New RIBA book looks to the future of urban planning by looking back- Introducing 20/20 Visions

20/20 Visions: Collaborative Planning and Placemaking debates participatory democracy at a time when most of the world’s population live in cities.

It discusses how best to create sustainable places that support healthy, enterprising communities, against a backdrop of a new urgency being felt in the midst of a housing crisis.

This is the latest book from national architecture authority RIBA Publishing and the first from JTP partner, architect Charles Campion, in which the future of placemaking and the important role of communities are discussed.

2020 Visions Book - Architecture Books

Campion critically examines twenty case studies from the last two decades, all of which use the ‘charrette’ process as a unique solution to community placemaking. This ‘tried and tested’ process involves local people working with multidisciplinary professionals to collaboratively create their own thriving, sustainable communities.

The concept originated in 1960s America, through ideas advocated by the Regional/ Urban Design Assistance Team (R/UDAT). This organisation developed the participatory charrette practices that have flourished today, in the United States, the UK and around the world.

20/20 Visions demonstrates the objectives of Campion and JTP, and offers an informed, timely commentary on the development of towns and cities, and the government’s role in making healthy environments for the local community. Busy practitioners and those who value people-centric design will see it as a comprehensive guide and indispensable companion.

Campion brings to light: “Cities, towns and villages were historically the product of many local hands as places evolved to suit needs of the community they served. However, the past few decades have seen planning theory and practice move away from creating locally distinctive and responsive places, in favour of an agenda often imposed from outside the community.

“Planning has become dominated by professionals and politicians… communities feel alienated, believing they have no real power to influence outcomes.

“The collective intuition and intelligence of communities bring social, economic and environmental value to designing cities and neighbourhoods. Just as the act of voting is a right, it is inherently democratic to bring people genuinely to the heart of planning and placemaking.”

The book positions the creativity of communities as a huge but largely untapped resource.

Looking to the future, the proposition of 20/20 Visions for the government is that discussion about architecture and design should be steered toward the idea of collaborative planning, for the good of the communities that will make them their homes in decades to come.

In the book, Campion affirms: “It is time to change the way things are done and to bring communities genuinely to the heart of planning and placemaking.”

The book is available to order on the RIBA Bookshops website for £32.00. Order your copy here:

By Ákos Moravánszky

The complex biological process involving the exchange of chemical substances within an organism can also be applied to architecture: what is known as ‘Stoffwechsel’ (‘material metamorphosis’) was the brainchild of the architect and art critic Gottfried Semper.
