Architecture News


I always saw works of architecture as cultural and political symbols of the local area, as well as works of art. Historical civilizations (either still existing or not) are often identified and recognized by their surviving architectural achievements, in both structures and detailing. To me, architecture shows how buildings and structures are able to express powerful social forces of any era. Each building type, style, and movement embody the attitudes of our relationship with nature, our social relation with other people, the importance of the individual person or group, the value of the advances in science and technology, and the role of politics in our world. This interest led me to pursue a Bachelor of Environmental Design from Texas A&M (as well as a minor in Art/Architectural History) and a Master of Architecture from UT-San Antonio. I’ve been fortunate to have interned and worked with architecture firms in San Antonio and Chicago (the mecca of American architecture; in my opinion), and be able to teach architecture classes while in the process of completing my academic studies.

  • Chekhov APi / Askar Ramazanov + Archiproba Studios December 14, 2017 2:00 AM
    The Chekhov APi is hidden in a forest and is not easy to find without having geo-location coordinates. An information pavilion with a terrace is situated at the entrance to the residence and provides shelter from the rain for newly arrived residents and acts as a bus stop between the past and the present, man-made and natural. Next to the pavilion lies the entrance courtyard turned into a Robotic Sculpture Garden by using multiple digital art-objects and installations. The entrance area immerses guests and residents into a special environment of this countryside place.

    IntroductionReclining within an exclusive node in western Singapore, FABER-HOUSE looks perfectly suited to its lavish milieu - at home amongst the quaint bungalows in this cosy enclave. This bespoke residence was designed to fulfil the specific needs of the client, where their two foremost considerations were family and friends. Working with a sizeable plot of land, the design team opted to realign the new house to one side of the site. This decision optimized space usage, with the new layout allowing the inclusion of a garden and a lap pool.

  • Jolla 39 House / Gonzalez Moix Arquitectura + Alejandro Esposito December 13, 2017 3:00 PM
    We understand that all architectural experience is multi-sensorial and embraces qualities of matter and not matter, of the closed and open space, of accurate or ambiguous space, of textures, reflections, of the human scale among others. We were interested in exploring processes where mass and light became the raw material for building a timeless container, which embraces a specific program and enters into direct communion with the site.

  • Shore House / LSS December 13, 2017 11:00 AM
    Located at the juncture where a forest opens onto the bay, the Shore House was designed to capture both the intimacy of the wooded site and the expansiveness of the open water. Upon approach, a cedar facade and planted roof obscure the house while the minimal fenestration curates glimpses of the ocean beyond. A cut in the earth offers entry to the house followed by a sequence of interior and exterior spaces that slowly open to sweeping views of the bay.

  • Zinc House / OB Architecture December 13, 2017 5:00 AM
    We were given the kind of brief most young aspiring practices dream of: to design a contemporary house in a wonderful location overlooking the sea. The twist here was that the house had to be highly accessible whilst avoiding the ‘institutionalised’ feel that many homes for people with impaired mobility occasionally suffer from.

The perimeter walls of the rear courtyard support a plywood roof, curved in plan and section to allow maximum light into a patio garden.
