Growing Cities: Documentary on Urban Agriculture

(8 years ago)
Filmmakers Dan Susman and Andrew Monbouquette set out this summer to learn about urban agriculture and how it is affecting the urban-rural divide in America. Urban agriculture is just what it sounds like: utilizing urban space in order to cultivate food. The movement has met with sporadic success, but has been picking up steam in the last few years. There are even some extremes, such as the urban forager, who uses existing urban plant life as sources for food.Here's the trailer for the in-progress film (the duo is currently making their way out of Atlanta):(more...)

ACADIA 2011 Digital Design Winners

(8 years ago)
ACADIA (Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture) announced the winners of this year's Design and Fabrication competition. Hosted in conjunction with Brooklyn-based fabricators FLATCUT_, the challenge seeked out innovative geometric forms that push the limits of design through the exploration of integrative material strategies for digitally fabricated assemblies. Awarded across three categories, Furniture, Lighting and Partitions, this year's winning projects displayed an interesting array of innovation including unique joinery solutions, expandable design options and the use of complimentary materials.FURNITURERECIP is a modular furniture system comprised of mutually reinforcing sets of interlocking rubber panels laminated to heavyweight felt batting. The project draws on the inherent material properties of both rubber and felt to produce a structural system that is capable of both moments of rigidity and moments of flexibility in the same assembly. Thanks to its inherent adaptability, RECIP can be reconfigured to function as a chair, a table, a bookcase, a spatial divider, and any number of other applications.The project relies on digitally enabled means of fabrication in order to minimize waste and maximize structural integrity. Machining patterns of v-grooves and cuts in the rubber produces a surface that easily folds into the peaks and valleys of the teeth that comprise the locking mechanism for the assembly. At the end of the lifecycle the project can be[..]

An Award Worthy of an Award: Greg Durrell designs the Terry Fox Award

(8 years ago)
While we recently unveiled the Core77 Design Awards Trophy in anticipation of our live jury announcements, I came across another award design by Greg Durrell. He's designed everything from poster campaigns to workers' uniforms for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, not to mention this beautiful award for Canadian athletes (in conjunction with James Lee and Ben Hulse). Clearly reminiscent of that year's medals in form, the Terry Fox award is given to athletes whom possess "determination and humility in the face of adversity." Durrell best describes the materials behind the award himself:The award was made out of a combination of Western Yew wood and nickle. The Yew tree was specially chosen because a chemical found in its bark is currently undergoing research for cancer fighting properties. The choice to use a combination of natural and artificial materials was a reference to how Terry ran on an artificial leg. The undulating form of the design is inspired by Canada's landscapes and shares a similar style to the medals, trays and podium.(more...)

If You Could Bend the Hands of Time

(8 years ago)
You could argue there's nothing sillier than setting the clock forward to game yourself into punctuality, but people do it all the time. The "On Time" clock by Italy's Diamantini & Domeniconi addresses this by throwing a kink in the minute hand. Ironically, Diamantini & Domeniconi don't seem to have a very good sense of time themselves, or they're defunct; their website hasn't been updated since 2009.(more...)
