Precipitous escalation in real estate and construction costs over the past decade has rendered housing in many of the wealthiest cities in the US nearly, if not completely, unaffordable to an increasing cross-section of the population. In conjunction with the affordability crisis, transformations in social structures have pressured municipal agencies to gradually redefine regulatory definitions of ‘family’. This economic scenario has catalyzed several developer-driven responses of seemingly novel types: micro-units, co-housing, co-living, pocket communities, etc.. Ironically, they are conceived of and executed as conventionally formed conglomerations of a particular set of ‘units’ with an attendant infrastructure that is hyper-efficient for a specific layout. Even if constructed of sustainable materials and assemblies, these emerging types are wanting in resilience of configurative logic at the scale of the unit and the building.

Beyond technical considerations, what are the preconditions for architecture to possess the capacity to be repeatedly subjected to adaptation and remain culturally relevant? Through research and analysis of housing precedents, the studio identified exigencies of resilience as an opportunity to radically reconceptualize multi-family housing from the ‘inside out’. At the same time, the studio studied specific patterns of urban geography and assessed the socio-spatial context of a complex and diverse neighborhood. If specificity is essential to inspire the imagination for future adaptation, how deeply can the larger context inform the particulars of the architecture from the ‘outside in’ ?

Veggies, Not Art: The ICA's Watershed Becomes A Fresh Food Hub For East Boston

Big shoutout to The Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston, East Boston Neighborhood Health Center, and The Catered Affair for their collaboration to bring fresh food to East Boston residents! Together, they’ve transformed the Watershed “into a temporary, fresh produce distribution hub."

Struggling families in East Boston lack access to fresh food, and the Institute of Contemporary Art, which has a satellite location there, is trying to help.

Happy to be in such good company, and Happy New Year to everyone!

Ankara Office Tower, the outstanding turkish building designed by Anmahian Winton Architects has been awarded with the prestigious 2018 BSA Honor Awards for Design Excellence.
