Live Lecture:  New Normal//Smart City

Join in tomorrow, Nov. 14, at 12 PM ET for a Live Lecture by Penn faculty regarding a New Normal in future urbanism! To register, click HERE. From the Alumni Association and Weitzman School of Design:

"... New platforms, a New Normal…. is to be found in the post-digital, the non-human and the extra-social. Intelligence is found in a highly subjective platform where digital design and robotic production is the norm, and digital craft and integral design are the future ... This talk answers that question and provides innovative architectural examples from Manhattan and Hangzhou, China, among others."

Winka was invited to present her newest lecture "Protocities, Protobuilding, Prototypes" at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, on April 15th, in addition to displaying some panels from her exhibition "Downtown Bogota // My Ideal City" previously on display at the Aedes Architecture Forum in Berlin. The lecture spoke to A-T's studies into the scalability of architectural prototypes, not only working models, but finished products that become the template by which other forms are developed.

In one such Protocity: Downtown Bogota, A-T investigated Bottom-Up scenarios by which all people in Bogota may crowd-fund their own initiatives via an online platform. This allows for the people to dictate the pace and method by which their cities grow, and if successful, could be implemented around the world.

13.12.18 Un-Cramming- A New Shared Economy
Un-Cramming- A New Shared Economy

In this time of ever-growing income inequality, Sharing has gained a new urgency. Originally an idea that emerged during the sixties, as a political and ethical principle in the quest for sexual liberation and freedom from tradition, gained through mind-expanding experiments and communal living, it has now re-emerged in a new, pragmatic form. The notion of Sharing had long been discarded as an outdated and politically biased phenomenon of hippie culture, while individualism and personal growth became the new paradigm. So how did it become relevant again? To mark the one-hundredth anniversary of the New York City’s zoning code, we propose the next dimension of Urban zoning, a 4-dimensional Hypercube that un-crams [unpacks] Manhattan’s 2nd and 3rd dimensional congestion into a four-dimensional model of Sharing [space]. By projecting the grid’s coordinates into a large Hypercube [the 4th dimension in mathematics], we developed a typology that falls between the scale of a neighborhood and a building. A city in a city. Located at the East river’s waterfront, this becomes a new terminal, a domestic /commercial hybrid that takes the notion of Sharing to a new level.

Two stadiums, a shopping mall and a massive landscaping strategy are designed as a backdrop for the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games, but also act as a neighborhood park for the adjacent urban development. The park proves to bring much potential, a 34,000 sq m Table Tennis Stadium and an 18,000 sq m Field Hockey Stadium serve the Asian Games, but all features of the design have legacy considerations: concerts can be held in either stadium, certain infrastructure disappears and turn into playgrounds, skate parks, etc. Look forward to seeing the result of this collaboration with !Melk, Thornton Tomasetti Engineering, Mobility in Chain, and Ryan Soames Engineering.

We think that the future of the city lies in a BOTTOM-UP approach where development is initiated by “acupuncture”. By acupuncture, we mean a strategic local approach of optimized infills within the urban fabric which are more adaptive and considerate to local economic and social pressures. For Jingzhou, we have developed FOUR Acupuncture techniques: Connect to the old city, Ribbon City as integrated work/live/play zone, Edge City as live/play zone, and the Venice Model as the recreation/play zone.

For years, Piers Fawkes has been helping companies like Apple, Facebook, Google, and Nike with cutting-edge research. Now he's turned his eye to architecture and city-living, citing our 512 GW Townhouse as a prime example of "Parasitic Living" for the future of architecture. Full article link below.

We're very excited to announce that construction is officially underway in China! Earth has been moved and foundations poured for the mile long park and two stadiums!

PennDesign Women in Architecture (PWIA) recently hosted a public conversation with Miller Professor and Chair of Architecture Winka Dubbeldam and Julia Gamolina, creator of online publication Madame Architect.

In front of an audience of students and faculty, Winka shared stories about how her interest in architecture developed, thoughts about studying and living in the Netherlands and New York, working for Peter Eisenman, and inspirational advice regarding design, practice, and theory.

Their conversation was live streamed in collaboration with Madame Architect and video will soon be available.

Launched in May 2018, Madame Architect is a digital platform for women to share their experiences working in architecture.

Claus Käpplinger of de Architect writes of our approach to hybridity, use of new technologies, daring attitude, and "passion for precision, prototyping, and prefabrication" in our Hangzhou Asian Games Park, Soho Tower, 512 GW Townhouse, Inscape Meditation Studio, Unknot Tower, and more.

Winka was invited to present her newest lecture "Protocities, Protobuilding, Prototypes" at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, on April 15th, in addition to displaying some panels from her exhibition "Downtown Bogota // My Ideal City" previously on display at the Aedes Architecture Forum in Berlin. The lecture spoke to A-T's studies into the scalability of architectural prototypes, not only working models, but finished products that become the template by which other forms are developed.

In one such Protocity: Downtown Bogota, A-T investigated Bottom-Up scenarios by which all people in Bogota may crowd-fund their own initiatives via an online platform. This allows for the people to dictate the pace and method by which their cities grow, and if successful, could be implemented around the world.

Daniella on Design: Winka was interviewed by Daniella in her Spring dialogues series on March 25th. She states: “Winka Dubbeldam, the leading and influential force in Architectural research and sustainability and founder of the international architecture firm Archi-Tectonics, is the subject of a new exhibition at Aedes Architecture Forum in Berlin. Here are some great moment in the process of filming this series. Stay tuned.”

Flat Lands and Massive Things – From NL to NYC & Beyond” opened March 15th at Aedes Berlin. The exhibit was hosted by Kristin Feireiss and Hans-Jurgen Commerell from Aedes, and generously sponsored by Abet Laminati, ArchiGlaze, Rieder Austria, Zumtobel, the Consulate of the Netherlands, and Plan Magazine. Before the opening the gallery hosted

In this time of ever-growing income inequality, Sharing has gained a new urgency. Originally an idea that emerged during the sixties, as a political and ethical principle in the quest for sexual liberation and freedom from tradition, gained through mind-expanding experiments and communal living, it has now re-emerged in a new, pragmatic form. The notion of Sharing had long been discarded as an outdated and politically biased phenomenon of hippie culture, while individualism and personal growth became the new paradigm. So how did it become relevant again? To mark the one-hundredth anniversary of the New York City’s zoning code, we propose the next dimension of Urban zoning, a 4-dimensional Hypercube that un-crams [unpacks] Manhattan’s 2nd and 3rd dimensional congestion into a four-dimensional model of Sharing [space]. By projecting the grid’s coordinates into a large Hypercube [the 4th dimension in mathematics], we developed a typology that falls between the scale of a neighborhood and a building. A city in a city. Located at the East river’s waterfront, this becomes a new terminal, a domestic /commercial hybrid that takes the notion of Sharing to a new level.

Arch2o has recently published an interview they had with Winka on their website. As shown in the article, many things were discussed
in this interview such as Winka's methods to running Archi-Tectonics, her role as Chair of the Department of Architecture at the University of Pennsylvania School of Design, and questions about some of Archi-Tectonics's recent projects such as the Q Tower. This was only a portion of what was discussed as you can check out the full interview by clicking the link below!

Archi-Tectonics was invited to be included for an Exhibit and lecture in SpazioFMG per l’Architettura in Milan, as well as in the third chapter of The Architect Series, an exclusive video format presented by The Plan Magazine. Winka was present at the lecture discussing the methods and design strategies of Archi-Tectonics while focusing on the latest concept of “New Solids”.

The opening took place on June 14th in SpazioFMG per l’Architettura via Bergognone 27, Milano.

Plan magazine also launched a special edition Architects Series book for the occasion to be included in their magazine.

Archi-Tectonics was invited to participate in Collapse: Climate, Cities, and Cultures, an exhibition at New York University that showcases environmentally orientated design practices from organizations in different parts of the world. The exhibition was open from June 12th to June 29th at the Gallatin Galleries and showcased the Q Tower, one of Archi-Tectonics’ projects located in Philadelphia. The Q Tower was developed with MIT Media Lab to be a fully off the grid, robotic tower. With its 24 units and an elevated ground floor world-class restaurant, this building accommodates the public aesthetically and functionally, by participating as an integral part of a new type of technology-user connectivity. This robotic tower also efficiently uses geothermal energy, smart lighting, and cooling controls on sensors, and employs a solar-smart facade.

Archi-Tectonics has recently been mentioned on FloorNature.com regarding our inclusion in the third volume of The Architect Series, the new cultural format at SpazioFMG per l' Architettura. Floornature.com also went on to talk about our investigation into "New Solids", further highlighted in our Inscape, Hangzhou, Gipsy Trail, 33 Vestry Street, and Soho Tower projects. To read more about our recent involvement, click the link below.

Winka Dubbeldam was featured in the world premiere of "Unknown New York: The City that Women Built", a new documentary by Beverly Willis that aired on June 6 at the SVA Theatre, 333 West 23rd Street between 8th and 9th Avenues. The film "...reveals the secrets of the once-anonymous city, introducing us to the women of Gotham whose legacy envelops us today."

As part of the Venice Biennale 2018, a session was organized on May 26th at the Sale d’Armi, titled Super City. Attendants included Winka Dubbeldam, Patrick Schumacher, Hernan Diaz Alonso, and Alisa Andrek, among others. Initiated by Tom Kovac for Malaysia’s Iskandar Puteri 100YC, architects and academics were asked to submit urban strategies; Winka spoke on her plan for Downtown Bogota, where bottom-up innovation is employed to reactivate Bogota's downtown.

Archi-Tectonics won the Asian Games Sports Park Competition 2018! Two stadiums, a shopping mall and a massive landscaping strategy are designed as a backdrop for the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games, but also act as a neighborhood park for the adjacent urban development. The park proves to bring much potential, a 34,000 sq m Table Tennis Stadium and an 18,000 sq m Field Hockey Stadium serve the Asian Games, but all features of the design have legacy considerations: concerts can be held in either stadium, certain infrastructure disappears and turn into playgrounds, skate parks, etc. Look forward to seeing the result of this collaboration with !Melk, Thornton Tomasetti Engineering, Mobility in Chain, and Ryan Soames Engineering.

Winka Dubbeldam was invited to be a juror for the Plan 2018 Award in Venice on May 23rd, which aims to disseminate knowledge of and improve the quality of the work done by designers and students in the architecture and city planning fields.

The Bartlett School of Architecture invited Winka Dubbeldam to speak at The Christopher Ingold Auditorium at the Bartlett in London, as part of the School’s International Lecture Series for 2018. On March 7th, Winka spoke to students about the importance of "New Solids" and how they have are to become an integral part of architectural innovation by integration of industrial design in architecture, and creating character and identity.

The government of Jingzhou invited Archi-tectonics to participate in a development strategy for the Jinan New District Overall City Planning Optimization and Design. We think that the future of the city lies in a BOTTOM-UP approach where development is initiated by “acupuncture”. By acupuncture, we mean a strategic local approach of optimized infills within the urban fabric which are more adaptive and considerate to local economic and social pressures. For Jingzhou, we have developed FOUR Acupuncture techniques: Connect to the old city, Ribbon City as integrated work/live/play zone, Edge City as live/play zone, and the Venice Model as the recreation/play zone.

Co-curated by Greg Goldin and Sam Lubell, the exhibition featured minimalist illuminated 3D Printed models as well as plans and drawings designed to animate “never built” buildings as if they were coming to life on the streets of New York. The exhibition was intended to offer a virtual reality of what the Metropolis that is New York City, could have been. Archi-Tectonics was honored to be a part of this exhibition, which was scheduled to take place at the Queens Museum in NYC, from September 17, 2017 to February 18, 2018.

Winka was recently selected to speak at an event hosted by ABC Home & Whitewall Magazine on May 2nd, 2017 in NYC. The panel discussion
consisted of a wide range of topics including how to design with intention as well as how to use color and light as tools to create wellness
spaces. Winka was joined on the panel by Katy Donoghue, "Whitewall Magazine" editor in chief, Elian Zach-Sheshman, "WOOM Center"
co-founder, Paulette Cole, "abc carpet & home" CEO and creative director, and Amy Illias "abc carpet & home" EVP of art.
