Can 3D Printing Reshape Residential Architecture as We Know It?

Can 3D Printing Reshape Residential Architecture as We Know It?

By 2025, Dubai plans for a fourth of its buildings to be printed in 3D construction methods, demonstrating the potential of a fast-growing technology capable of redefining and pushing the limits of traditional architecture. As the technique emerges as a viable solution in the construction, engineering, and architecture areas, its popularity is quickly increasing. In fact, just between 2021 and 2028, the global 3D construction market is expected to grow by 91%, according to a July 2021 report

Period house renovation nods to monolithic architecture

Monolithic architecture defines period house renovation in New Zealand

Franklin Road House in Auckland, designed by Jack McKinney Architects and Katie Lockhart Studio, is a monolithic marvel infused with tropical modernism

An Edwardian house in the Ponsonby neighbourhood of Auckland, New Zealand, has been given a 21st-century facelift with a thorough redesign and a touch of minimalism – through an extension’s monolithic architecture. The residence, a family home on Franklin Road, was designed by Jack McKinney Architects and interiors specialist Katie Lockhart Studio, who drew on principles of modernist architecture, and in particular tropical modernism, for the project’s warm

A German Architectural Firm Embraces Sustainable Building Practices

This article is part of a special report on Climate Solutions, which looks at efforts around the world to make a difference.


There was a time, including when Martin Henn’s grandfather and father were at the peak of their careers, when many architects lived by a simple creed: bigger was better. But with a growing awareness of how that thinking contributes to the greenhouse gas emissions that are linked to climate change, a new vocabulary has sprouted in many firms: sustainability, circular economy, organic design.

That is the kind of language that Martin Henn, 41, said he brought into the

Orientalism and Architecture

We are twenty-one years into the twenty-first century. The world has never been more connected with the advent of new technologies, yet historical inequalities still run rampant. These inequalities manifest themselves in different ways. Global travel, for example – despite the ubiquity of aeroplanes nowadays – is still only widely accessible to citizens of “developed” countries due to prohibitive visa restrictions. In architectural education, many institutions still prioritise

The Architecture of Prisons Is Everywhere We Look

There is a federal prison in downtown Chicago, the Metropolitan Correctional Center, that is celebrated by architects because it “doesn’t look like a prison.” That fact hardly matters to the people inside, of course — the building is still a prison. But the Harry Weese–designed edifice is undeniably more thoughtfully devised and strikingly detailed than most publicly funded buildings today.

MCC Chicago’s distinguishing features, in addition to its rooftop exercise yard, are its triangular footprint and the shape of its windows. The triangular configuration is a straightforward move that accomplishes a lot — it sets the building back from Van

A General Agreement for the Practice of Contemporary Architecture

A General Agreement for the Practice of Contemporary Architecture

This article was originally published on Common Edge.

In this week’s reprint, author Andrés Duany presents a series of statements from today’s architectural world. He considers that these understandings are the product of our times, a direct reaction and a consequence of the observed patterns.

In response to an age of social stress, of nature undermined by patterns of human dwelling, refusing contamination

Architecture and Engineering Side by Side: the Case of Urban Bridges

Architecture and Engineering Side by Side: the Case of Urban Bridges

Courtesy of Javier Haddad

The technical needs of the construction of bridges many times guide the development of the design itself. However, architecture is never put aside, rather the opposite. The aesthetics of bridges that we collect in this article are the result of an intense, demanding, and stimulating dialogue between architecture and engineering, where the search for solutions only ends when both disciplines are fully satisfied.
