The Bicentennial House Small Town Design Comp

(7 years ago)
The nice thing about your average international design competition is its sheer reach, but it's also nice to see small, rural communities holding design comps of their own. The Bicentennial House Competition was one such event, sponsored by the tiny town of New Harmony, Indiana, population just 789 people.The historic town of New Harmony has an architectural legacy in the Harmonist house, a type of dwelling named for the religious movement of German immigrants who setlled the area in the early 1800s. A Harmonist house was a simple 20x30 box with an austere look and a central chimney, originally built with old-school techniques:...The Harmonie Society constructed...28 single family dwellings made with half-timbered traditional construction and insulated with wooden boards covered with straw and mud. Painted plaster covered the interior walls, while either hardwood clapboards or bricks sheathed the exteriors. Wood shakes covered the roofs. A footprint of 20 x 30 feet was the norm in each two-story house.(more...)

Soren Petersen on Different Cultures' Design Tastes

(7 years ago)
Design researcher and columnist Soren Petersen's got a great installment in this week's Huffington Post nutshelling design values across different cultures. According to Petersen, American, Japanese and Australian cultures value innovation, the Europeans value function and China "gives little importance to the design process." Drilling further down, he estimates thatFunctionality is communicated in Danish design through minimalism and longevity, German design is communicated by emphasizing efficiency and reliability, French design, by relaying the rethinking of functionality and Italian design calls for enjoyment of the product.The article's great—if far too short; I wanted to read more on the subject. Perhaps Petersen provides more in his recently-released book, Profit from Design - Leveraging Design in Business, written with seven years' worth of research backing it up. I don't see the book on Amazon but it's available here.(more...)

Neri Oxman's Bio-Fab Projects

(7 years ago)
We've covered Neri Oxman before, but we wanted to spotlight her work given her recent addition to the faculty at MIT's Media Lab. The amazing thing about Oxman's work is that its appearance seems so biological and organic, yet every piece is fabricated from machines and man-made technologies. These first two objects, for instance, are 3D-printed acrylic composites using the Connex500, allowing Oxman to print multiple materials at once and recreate "veins."(more...)

Chuck Kraeuter's Immaculate 1/2 Scale model of a 1966 Honda RC166

(7 years ago)
Combining 30 years of Industrial Design and Machining experience and a passion for Vintage Motorcycle Racing, Chuck Kraeuter spent 166 consecutive days (approx. 2-3 hours a day) building this jaw-dropping 1/2-Scale RC166 from scratch. While it was built for his 3 year old daughter Anna to bring to the Portland Vintage Races (a 3 year old is 1/2 the height they will be as an adult), it can be pushed to tech inspection. It doesn't run but does have a 1st gear so that the clutch spins like it would if bump starting.Comprised of over 625 separate parts, not including screws bolt and nuts, the model was first drawn completely in Solidworks. Cast parts were patterned from laser sintered nylon, while silicon molds were used to create rigid and flexible urethane parts. Chuck did all the machining himself, both manually, "a surprising amount of manual lathe time," and with CNC. (more...)
