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.

    The whitewashed boxy architecture stands out conspicuously along a street of nondescript houses, differentiating itself from the neighbors with its clean white façade with precise edges. Home to a floriculture enthusiast and her family, this house sets out to fulfill the brief of amalgamating both quality living spaces and ample outdoor areas all around the house.

  • Examining Archigram's Ideas and Their Pursuit of Style March 28, 2020 6:00 AM
    Europe in the 1960’s was the incubator for the emergence of young, provocative, and avant-garde architecture radicals including Archizoom, Superstudio, Ant Farm, and UFO. These groups rebelled against traditional architecture dogma in favor of exalting tropes that celebrated counterculture ideals, and an interest in designs that could extend both time and space. Archigram, the London-based faction of this movement, didn’t try to reinvent modernist principles, but instead tried to accelerate them and push the conservative climate to become more future-proof. Rightfully so, they felt that art and architecture was falling behind with their inability to keep up with products and technological advancements that were already a part of daily life. While Archigram’s ideas and drawings were often criticized as being frivolous, the group’s prophecies about the future have been realized in many ways, and still largely influence architectural discourse in the present day.

  • IBG School / HIBINOSEKKEI + Youji no Shiro + Kids Design Labo March 27, 2020 9:00 PM
    This is an interior design project of transforming a three-storey existing building to IBG Kindergarten in Beijing, China. The acronym in ibg stands for Inspiring, Bi-cultural and Green. While many emphasize on ease of maintenance and ease of use among adults as their requirement of design, but we prioritized children’s use and learning as our criteria. Supporting the educational philosophy of the school, the structure was filled with nature so as to educate the children amidst the enjoyable green which is a rare sight in this urban neighborhood. The roof was transformed to a ‘Garden of Movement’, that is a simple terrace garden to boost movement and exercise.

    The site is distinguished by its location on a plateau, with remarkable views of the Pyrenean chain. This plateau is dominated by agricultural fields, woodlands and a few suburban dwellings. Its very natural character leads us to think of a stadium in close relation with its environment. Our party soaks up the rural fabric to delicately blend into the Ger countryside.
