Tom Kundig 2

I little while ago I posted links to work by Tom Kundig of Olson Kundig.

Amber of Constructive Dialogue has pointed on that there is a website about a house by Kundig (the Maxon House) and a series of films about it's procurement.

Dwell magazine also has a blog about the house.

House & Atelier Bow-Wow

Through the link to the Hiroo Apartments video below, I came across a website with construction photos of the House & Atelier Bow-Wow.

Drawings and photos also at Archdaily.

Hiroo Apartments by Kumiko Inui 2

Linseen has found a link to a short video of these apartments.

Marcio Kogan

Plataforma Arquitectura has just published a few images of a project by Marcio Kogan. This doesn't relate to your project, I just like his work.

Lecture tonight - Paisajes Emergentes

People, Colombian Architects Paisajes Emergentes are delivering a lecture at Sydney University tonight (Monday 18 April). Their work is very good and I think this lecture would be worthwhile. In addition to their website, photos of their work can be seen at their Flickr page.

Rolex Centre, Lausanne

Pedro Kok has loaded a nice video of SANAA's Rolex Centre in Lausanne onto his site.

Hiroo Apartment by Kumiko Inui

I've been trying to find you images of the Hiroo Apartments by Kumiko Inui as this project deals with many of the problems with your site. Essentially, vertical circulation occupies a very large percentage of the available floor plate. I cannot find the photos of the interior, but have found plans and sections through Architectural Record.

Maison de Verre

A few images of the Maison de Verre (mentioned last week) by Pierre Chareau & Bernard Bijvoet from the New York Times

Martí Guixé's Food Facility

Amsterdam, 2005

Text from Martí Guixé's website:
Food Facility Amsterdam

Food Facility is a prototype for a Business model.
It comes from a commission of Mediamatic, on the idea to create a food-related project in the context of new media.
Food Facility is then a Platform, which mainly mixes Outsourcing, search engines and networking to improve as much as possible the infrastructure of any conventional restaurant in economical terms, and reflecting the way we perceive reality and all-day in the new media and internet era.

Food Facility is a restaurant with more than 9 Kitchens and lots of drinks.
Also see Mediamatic for more photos, signage etc

atelier d'architecture autogéréé (aaa)

atelier d'architecture autogéréé (aaa) gave a very good lecture at the Rights to the City symposium. They are giving another lecture on Wednesday evening at Sydney Uni. Sadly, this is at the same time as the regular lectures at UTS (though I don't know what is on this week).

The Right to the City 2

You all missed a very good lecture and symposium. There was a lot of discussion that would have assisted you with this studio. The exhibition is still on and the publication is available for $10 (student/unwaged) or $15 (waged) at the exhibition or online.

David Harvey's essay The Right to the City is re-printed in the publication or can be viewed at the New Left Weekly website.

Margaret Crawford's essay on Harvey's essay (in the publication) is also worth a look.
