Architecture's Call To Action | AW-ARCH

In a time when public monuments are being challenged in the Unites States and across the world, it is incumbent on architects, artists, and designers to create works that are able to inform, enlighten and provoke as well as delight. Public space has become an amplified realm for polarized social expression and action, and at the same time is being further stretched by public health concerns...(Follow the link below to read more about mazen's thoughts on Architecture's call to action...)

Welcome to AW-ARCHIVES! With the launch of this new visual platform, we are excited to take deep dives into our past, and to rediscover or uncover previously unseen themes in our work and research. By focusing our eyes on a single sliver of visual content that cuts across our discipline and collection of work throughout the years, what provocations will be revealed?

Perforated bronze screen @brownu Friedman Hall new north entry establishes a contemporary counterpart to the original entrance. The perforations reflect its elaborate stone carvings, and are visible differently by day, as sun filters into the building, and by night, as the piece becomes an illuminated beacon to campus.

Gemma Observatory, social distancing since 2015.
Portrayed here is access to exterior deck with red lighting which is used when telescopes are in observation mode. Red lights, similar to dark rooms, allow for light-sensitive equipment in telescopes to process far away images without light pollution but give the viewer accessibility to the rest of the structure.

AW Archives: North Avenue Botanical Bridge winning entry a few years back for @cityofboston

Our winning competition entry preserves the Northern Avenue Bridge and transforms it from an abandoned relic into a functional artifact. The new Northern Avenue Botanical Bridge (NABB) serves as an armature for pedestrian travel and a greenhouse where botanical gardens flourish year round. Further, NABB renews connections between downtown Boston and the South Boston Waterfront by extending the Rose Kennedy Greenway into the Seaport District.

INSIDE OUT / OUTSIDE IN Option Studio I Images from the virtual final review. Taught by Andrew Scott and Alex Anmahian @alexanmahian , and TA’d by Steven Kosovac @limp_wrist @mitarchitecture

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’ ?

Introducing our newest member of the AW family: Emily Whitbeck @emilywhitbeck .
Emily joins us fulltime after recently completing her M.Arch’20 from Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s School of Architecture and Planning. Emily has a B.Des. Arch. summa cm laude from the University of Florida. Emily spent a few summers as an intern in our office; she displayed exceptional drawing and rendering skills and rigorous attention to detail. She has brought these talents to bear on such AW projects as Harvard University’s Knafel Center at the Radcliffe Institute, Toscanini’s in Cambridge, MA, and both the Emigrant Lake Boathouse and the Hart Perry Boathouse. On behalf of all of us at AW, welcome onboard!
