  • 'a coherent approach that works equally well at micro and macro scale'

    Designed for rural locations, Sybarite's prefabricated houses offer views above the treetops and can be installed within two weeks. The underside accommodates undulating kinetic baffles, which are used to generate electricity.
  • 'a radical reinterpretation of a much-neglected building type'

    Buschow Henley's design for a 400-inmate prison is a theoretical proposal developed with the Do Tank and Demos. The prison takes the form of 11 autonomous live-learn houses, each accommodating 36 people, with communal facilities below. The chequerboard arrangement allows secure gardens for each house. This limits the need for the managed movement of inmates, so giving staff more time to conduct the new regime of learning initiatives.
  • 'a witty and stylish approach to social architecture'

    Piercy Conner's proposal for the regeneration of Brooks Road Estate in east London is based on the idea of adding 'overcoats' to existing dwellings. These operate as environmental buffers, harnessing solar energy, collecting rainwater and reusing clean warm air, as well as providing additional usable space. Living rooms are reoriented to face the street.

    Mueller Kneer Associates has obtained planning permission for this new church on a site occupied by a modest chapel owned by the Glad Tidings religious community in east London. The church and its ancillary spaces are contained within a single form, enveloped by a skin of large brass shingles in a reddish gold.

    The design and development of the Ernsting Service Centre at Coesfeld-Lette, Germany, was overseen by Martin Ebert of David Chipperfield Architects.
  • 'tackling complex education issues with maturity'

    The Centre for Lifelong Learning is one of two projects for London's City and Islington College carried out under the guidance of Stafford Critchlow at Wilkinson Eyre. A radical reworking of a Victorian board school, the college has a strong new identity in the form of a new entrance and atrium, with the much-loved Victorian building at its heart. The scheme was shortlisted for the Prime Minister's Better Public Building Award in 2004.

    One of the problems with designing housing is that we all have experience of one sort of provision or another. I have yet to meet the architect who spent their youth in a yurt.

    If someone offered you pre-rotted timber for your building, they would be given short shrift.

    Moving buildings are considered a bad thing. Modes of failure are expressed by 'movement', and the average homebuyer has been imbued with a pathological terror of the word 'subsidence'. But if the aforementioned movement is intentional and benign, we look upon it as an entirely different attribute.

    The first time I got on an aeroplane, I made sure I sat next to the window. We took off from a wet Gatwick. But this did not prevent me seeing a rooftop, onto which someone had painted the word 'Teas'. As if, upon landing, one might seek out the place or even defenestrate in mid-flight for the allure of tea. The point was that somebody had constructed the following (flawed) syllogism; aircraft fly over our roof, therefore you can see the roof from the aircraft, therefore the roof makes ...
