To architecture students and professionals: What are your favourite websites for news/inspiration/etc etc?

metropolismag.com has some interesting articles every once and a while, so does archinect.com

 

but if i just want a flood of images i usually just search "architecture" on tumblr  (lol)

If I just need images or precedents and I more or less know what I'm looking for it's all of the usual ones: archdaily, dezeen, etc.

 

when i'm just browsing around: what we do is secret, a daily dose of architecture, bldgblog, and a bunch of other personal blogs and tumblrs that occasionally post interesting things... usually though I'd rather go to the library and read a magazine or book - infinitely better than a blog.  also infinitely better: finding good lectures/debates/etc on youtube/vimeo.  the GSD has a great channel, as do a few other schools and groups.  I tend to find listening to smart people talk about their work way more "inspirational"/helpful that just looking at images.

Work of Neil Denari. 

 

He's designing the new high rise campus for my old high school. Would've been fun to go to school in a Denari building. Alas...

 

Some pictures I've taken of overlooked, interesting buildings in Los Angeles.

This Schindler building is student housing for UCLA.

^ that schindler situation is depressing.

 

Actually, it was built specifically for student housing. Some wealthy lady in the 40s thought that student housing architecture should be elevated, so she did just that.

Kevin Low of Small Projects is the guest critic at my school's final crits this semester. 

 

I honestly think I gained more from hearing him talk to our projects than I have from any teacher in my arch. education.

That concrete roof deck supported by glass and tiny steel columns is blowing my mind! Wondering if the slab is actually thinner, curling up at the edges to give the illusion that it's that thick. Either way that's some tough glass.

Edit: it does thin out near the ends. But it's still a massive cantilever.

That glass isn't taking any load from the conc.; can't tell from the section drawings, but there's probably a ton of post-tensioned steel in that cantilevered slab.

Yeah, jesus. Whimsical formalism = $$$$$$ roof deck. The marble detailing (shutters espc.) is impressive, but the parti, not so much so. Reads like one of those 'let's throw money at an imagined problem, because' instances.

You're probably right.  I assumed the steel frames were taking some of the load, didn't even consider post-tensioned steel.  I still have a lot to learn about structures of this type / scale, I mostly deal with wood frame residential projects.

Found this beautiful tower hidden away in UNH's campus a month or so ago and did some research on it, it was originally a part of the New England Center designed by William Pereira. They converted the tower into student housing and one of the main buildings into offices for administration. (Sorry for the iPhone quality)
