romantic ruins of a Moshe Safdie project I m tickled to find out that Canada has made Habitat 67 into a historic monument How appropriate What a collision of architectural proclivities Puerto Rico should hurry and give historic status to its Safdie piece as well On the one hand with Habitat 67 Safdie showed the world what is often said to be an alternative model for mass low cost prefab dwellings Save us from ourselves will ya I ve heard that Habitat 67 far from housing the masses of displaced peoples is actually packed with who else architects For ages many in the development and architecture professions have upheld Habitat as a solution for out of control cities But oh the irony At the end of the day the ruin as I suggested in the past post might prove to be architecture s higher calling And Dov Charney seems to agree See also Safdie s wikipedia entry Propagate Click to email Opens in new window Click to print Opens in new window Click to share on Twitter Opens in new

Posted in architects architecture Tagged habitat housing ruins safdie Leave a comment Garden of Reverse Destinies Lost Safdie project a paradoxical inspiration to green architects everywhere According to a stubby entry in Archiplanet org on Moshe Safdie Initially his ideas proved expensive and difficult to construct but Safdie introduced the cellular scheme in several areas including New York and Puerto Rico where his ideas were successfully initiated Nonetheless a chance encounter with a 2008 blog entry reveals something slightly less successful but perhaps all the more thought provoking evidence of Safdie s Puerto Rican project lost and abandoned amidst a jungle located at the misnamed Berwin Farm Or was that the success that was always envisioned Is this a bit of accidental proof of how some architecture just so happens to be a fantasy about a deserted earth And I wonder Did Minsuk Cho and Jeffrey Inaba go there with fatigues and nightvision for an inspirational visit as they planned this project Or perhaps in this current era of overfertilized green architecture all sorts of past forms of failed architectures get recast as disembodied lesson plans for the future The new grand tour takes you to places like this one Safdie s module lost amidst Puerto Rico s vegetation Photo by Desayuno Calle 2008 See full entry with two more photos at Futriaca To find out more about

javier Posted in architects architecture design geography landscape 1 Comment Architecture imagined as ecological To coincide with the Ecological Urbanism Conference at the Harvard GSD Not so long ago I heard from a former student She was anguished and deciding between applying to one out of two master s programs offered by a famous architectural institution that only let her apply to one Her choice was between a program specialized in housing and another one in sustainability What a choice How symbolic I thought of the quagmire we ve gotten ourselves into To dwell Or to survive Let s have a look The all encompassing discourse of sustainability is tangled up with global geopolitics at every turn but that discourse hides its tail What s worse is that sustainable architecture can be the proverbial greenwash as I think has become more than evident We would only have to pass a roll call of all the eco resorts done in years of economic fluidity Thinking about a sustainable practice is still supposed to arouse in us a moral instinct of how to satisfy our needs without compromising the needs of future generations The small house movement serves as a good example of an architecture informed by notions of what is said to be basic Our needs however are a mirage We know that they are essentially malleable They re subject to crass marketing manipulation They evolve through the sieves of culture and desire They re hard to pin down and it s no accident that capitalism pulls the rug from underneath us as soon as we try Besides unless the global economic crisis ends up destroying capitalism we satisfy our so called needs through an increasingly global economy despite the localist and nationalist fantasies some may have Even if we didn t have capitalism we d still have trade and subscribers to notions of Malthusian natural limits fail to adequately take this into account Sometimes the sustainability talk sounds to me even xenophobic in its suggestions that a certain number of citizens will have a right to the city blurring further the notion of what is natural Numerical limits Naturalization as in citizenship The ideologues of sustainability might deny that it is an issue of power and not morals but it is It has to do with who determines how much is a reasonable need for some and not others both at a local and global level By the way I m sorry for even using these terms like local and global because they pertain to imprecise scales especially when ecological processes are involved But none of this has slowed down the field of architecture As often times is clear in the works of architects like Michael Sorkin and other adherents to the ecological footprint design is an index of how much nature is judged to be fair and balanced according to some metric of consumption For one thing this implicitly privileges the first world consumer Architecture seems to always want to rectify say energy consumption but is usually passive or silent about the overabundant economic resources of its patrons except to sometimes mildly chastise their bad taste For another thing the implicit focus on consumers of energy of resources of food validates the continual restoration of a global project of resource and space distribution Architecture and planning help with the order and design of this distribution but practitioners can t face it Sustainable architecture has circumscribed itself to an environmental crisis but not a geopolitical one probably so as to not offend any clients The economic crisis has hit architects very hard and it partially evinces how interlaced the bubble economy and ecological principles were We can t even look at now historic images of green buildings in Dubai without a painful grimace The mythical rupture with the past rears its head again But what is the global idea of self proclaimed green architecture How do we see nature and our uses of it through the representations made by these forms of architecture I think we can identify two general responses to the questions Both treat the environmental crisis as a problem whose solution lies in addressing consumption As David Gissen points out pdf both responses also treat the natural and the social as two separate spheres To this we should also add that both responses reassert an age old divorce between city and country at the expense of the country and the gain of the city By the way let me stop here and address what might be a big protest in the mind of the reader I suspect that even when flashing images of production in the form of vertical farms and windmills the real anxiety beneath the image is about how we might sustain our first world consumption not create say a more bearable life for the actual human laborers that will compose the new rurban peasant class in these future cities let alone even think about what the future countryside will be like hint it ll be more brutal not less In addition the mode of thinking of green or ecological urbanism ultimately defends a hazy abstract idea of cities at all costs as inherently good for the planet And defends a notion of the world in which first world cities do not yield their place as the governators of finance power truth migrations ideas But let s continue The first of these responses in the architecture world is abstention This architecture imagines a world without humans Architecture therefore is our UFO for visiting a planet that we can only damage and we should not touch No surprise either that architects are so obsessed with documenting the design of post apocalyptic bunkers temporary military structures inflatables of all sorts and polar research stations no worry I love em too The second trend which seems to dominate architects imaginations nowadays even more is a strategy that attempts a metabolic relation with the planet supposing that idealized science as if science wasn t ideological can reveal the correct balance I admit my own enthusiastic participation in this trend too As much as anyone I still demand and expect a response to our modernity s crass relation to the environment Nevertheless the current architectural operations proposing this kind of benevolent cycling base their idea of nature on a nice Eden Have you ever seen any green architects show renderings of their green cities in the fall or winter or on a cloudy day or in any inclement weather for that matter This is no mere coincidence These ideas of nature are so rooted in the historic first world domestication of the rudeness of nature that their authors confuse socialized nature with primeval nature itself If we only let nature work it would give us everything we need to consume Did everyone think that so much lushness and farming envisioned in the city aren t going to open up new Pandora s boxes of infectious diseases and sanitation problems as we come into contact with more manure more bacteria and more wild animals that we urbanites are not at all naturalized to Of course that s all fine and dandy our powerful scientific establishment will hopefully take care of it but if you thought that inoculations would be fairly distributed to the urban world population think again This message brought to you by Pfizer Both of these architectural trends idealize nature as divorced from the economy society and politics Both think of nature as a self regenerating realm They distort history because they forget that nature has always been social starting with how as Donna Haraway among others has articulated the body itself inside and out has evolved through survival mechanisms necessitated by a larger totality Worse of all as Gissen also points out see Anxious Climate pdf architects in these camps seem to isolate in their minds the knowledge necessary for their design enterprise from what they know about the nature they conceptualize We have to ask ourselves how do we even know about the environmental crisis in the first place if not through the tools satellites computers genetic tests that reveal it These tools of course are part and parcel of the industrial revolution that brought on the crisis itself while at the same time strains of green architecture use them to measure flows of energy quantify wastes produce renderings and wire buildings throughout with the high tech communications that we demand As Gissen says In attempting to maintain an imagined separate natural world we have proliferated a messy network of links between nature and society Or in other words it s harder to isolate society from nature than what we want to think or shall we go on this voyage without navigation tools Of course some architects still latch onto that sort of radical back to nature primitivism As countless theorists have revealed we re dealing with a natural world that for some might seem implausible because of how artificial it actually is Another aside we have to remind ourselves that most of the ideas of nature we transact with are the product of a highly urbanized and male realm of thought written by many men that have constantly liberated themselves from many direct encounters with nature thanks to the unjust division of work and the sexes starting with child rearing itself But let s keep going What we need then is a more fine tuned approach In other words if these architectural options simulate nature as something we can consume in balanced ways or in some sort of moderation or absurdly not consume it at all the alternative must be an awareness that the current crisis is not one of environmental destruction but of environmental production Where we have failed is at producing livable natures for oursleves Of course you might protest that many landscape architects and theorists have been discussing the production of nature for some time now especially following the work of James Corner or his writings but that s not what I m talking about So far discussions on the production of nature in architecture have seemed to remain stuck implying an ideal first nature somewhere out there beyond the second nature that we produce as well as suggesting that second nature can be somehow shorn from its market relations We have so far failed to understand and work into architectural production a key insight from Neil Smith following Marx i e that under capitalism second nature produces and comes to substitute first nature Obviously this point opens up a much larger series of questions but in the interest of time those won t be addressed at this moment To finish then let s take a look at a few examples that seem to start to open a new fork in the road Though there is much work to be done let s take a look at some work that seems to internalize the complexity of a world where the organic and the industrial have been mixed for a very long time or were never even separate things One example continues the line of provocative investigations coming from R Sie n Lost in Paris is the name of it Maybe on purpose or by accident they evoke a short film by Julio Cortázar that has the same name where Cortázar s character plays hide and seek with Carole Dunlop Maybe the metaphor of the film works well to understand in a very useful shorthand the very behavior of nature in the capitalist world This Lost house resembles at first the usual rotation of green houses with their planted walls There is a fantastic post by the way on Living Facades by Owen Hatherly In this case the living facade seems almost cartoonish These architects do seem to revel in sticking their tongue out at the establishment once in a while The living wall goes a bit extreme hiding hard architecture with soft architecture But nothing here is quite what it seems This natural seeming fern wall relies on a hydroponic system that feeds off of stored rain water and a mixture of minerals that the inhabitants have to adjust during the course of the seasons according to a manual of instructions that came with the house What I find interesting about this project is the hydrosocial relation between photovoltaic beings architectural systems and humans all seen through a hallucinatory ensemble The ferns find their nutrition within a series of hanging vases that are nothing short of amazing See also ArchDaily s post of it The system itself is a hybrid made by natural processes mixed in with manual labor which includes the stunning human labor that went into making the vases and the inhabitant s operations themselves I suspect though I haven t asked them that the architects wanted the house to be both a visual delight and an organic fright There is something to it that s also perverse perhaps a sophisticated joke How is it that these humans now find themselves sustaining a plant that produces just about nothing except for maybe some clean oxygen and not say some yummy tomatoes But then again isn t that what s peculiar about all sorts of bourgeois social creations like private conservation easements Isn t that what modern living within nature without having to actually labor it is all about Surely it s a refined work Somehow it also alienates us from our accustomed relationships with second nature From what I can tell the interior yields the sensation that someone drew a curtain and showed us an organism that we didn t even want to see an odious organic machine as Richard White has termed it although our lives depend on it Unfortunately this system also has something nostalgic encoded into it something like a reaffirmation of an old modernity in the vein of the Frankfurt School as if there was no alternative but to socialize nature by domesticating it What is another avenue I m not sure I know what it looks like I think we can see the contours of it in some of the work of artist duo Allora y Calzadilla or
