    An oasis of beauty and calm has been carved out from the bustling metropolis of Mexico City. Revolution Architects designed the Black Cabin, a compact green-roofed dwelling surrounded by nature at Desierto de los Leones woods in the city’s western region. Sustainability and cost-effective construction were the driving features of the modular cabin design, which is constructed from recyclable materials and elevated off the ground to protect the interior from the cold and humidity.

    #1 Hi @CityVP Manjit & @Gert Scholtz 🐝 - this is aimed at the South African market, but I am sure that most of the principles outlined in the article apply to other parts of the world as well.

    @CityVP Manjit @Claire Cardwell It does indeed appear to scale wider as per the South African market. As this is not my direct line of work I think Claire may have a more informed view. Thank you for tagging me Manjit.

    I am assuming that this manual is principally geared for the South African realty and regulatory market but it looks like it contains principles that scale to wider aspects of home ownership. cc @Gert Scholtz 🐝

    Seattle teens build mobile tiny homes for local homeless community.

    Last year, with guidance from the non-profit organization Sawhorse Revolution and various architecture, construction, and engineering professionals, a group of teens designed seven tiny homes for the Nickelsville homeless community network in Seattle. With construction, made possible by a successful crowdfunding campaign, nearing completion, the team is back with plans to build four more moveable eco-friendly structures, including a tiny house duplex that’s ideal for families.

    The Starchitecture phenomenon is very interesting. It is natural to think big, bold, challenging, showy for public spaces, but really what matters to most of us is livability and that is in short supply when it comes to a thriving career for a great architect.

    I would love for beBee to be the sort of place where we could have these kinds of discussions and have some folks from Malmo could chime in about their experiences living in one of his buildings or as part of the community affected by a tourist-quality residence.

    In my point of view, he cares more about the beauty of its buildings, rather than its functionality and usability, and most of arquitects priorize the second. Just let's see what happened with some of his buildings in Valencia or Canarias, some doors are impossible to be oppened or closed and everytime that rains, are collapsed by water.

    ufffff, I don´t know really, I have to see the relationship between this two big buildings in the middle of New York. I liked Calatrava´s first jobs but now I think if you see one of them you`ve already seen all. Too big, too much money and very bad ageing of the buildings.

    You know, people like to talk badly about this facility. But I have to say it is stunning, functional and an amazing addition to Lower Manhattan. It's a fitting way to give the middle finger to the terrorists who took down the WTC on that spot. In America we are builders and I am thrilled to hear it was a Spanish Architect who did it! The design is brilliant. I shall tour you around next visit since much has changed since you were last here. The problem with the facility is the government / union control of the construction which went billions over budget.. They should have let Trump build it. He builds on time and under budget; HAHAHA

    Planchonella House by Jesse Bennett­ Architect, Queensland, Austraila, Planchonella House was designed with a simple idea in mind- to create a series of joyful spaces to inspire and enrich daily life. Set in tropical north Queensland, the house embraces the heritage rainforest surrounds and utilises experimental passive design methods. The simplistic approach and use of Lo-Fi technologies results in a raw and honest dwelling. Contours of the site ridgeline have formed basis for the playful lines utilised in concrete profiles. As not to protrude out with the ridge, the profile is mirrored and cuts back in to the ridge.
