Dwell web resource

Here’s another link that may be of interest for those of you interested in Architecture: Dwell.com

In one of my architecture class, I’ve had my students use the magazine to get ideas on how to present projects and visually communicate their design. I just recently found out about their website. There’s a link to the magazine on the website, but there is also a wealth of information regarding design. The link on Places lets you travel the world via architectural/art images.

There’s also a Green section found under Ideas, for those interested in sustainable architecture. Here’s the link to one of many wonderful articles (with images). It’s titled Harvest Boon. The caption reads, “In the eastern Netherlands, resourceful recyclers 2012Architects have built a house almost entirely out of locally sourced scrap, from old billboards to broken umbrellas.”

Happy Anniversary Lounge!

Sustainability Alliance (It’s a Committee)

Just in case you didn’t see it, Jen Asimow is looking for some committed people for the Sustainability Alliance.

She wrote:

If anyone is reading this out there, I am trying my darnedest to convene a group of committed people sometime in the near future. I have had limited interest (13 people are interested in serving on this committee, including 2 staff and 2 administrators). Please let me know if you would like to participate, even on a part-time, little-time, only via emails, as an observer, basis.

You can reach her at jasimow@ccc.edu if you are interested in participating in any way shape or form with them.
