  • Quite unbelievable that the developers got a permit to not only demolish and rebuild this facade, but rebuild it 1.3m to the south so they could squeeze in a fire exit. Originally built in 1936, designed by #HarryNorris (like most #ColesStores) it was on the site of the very first store that #GJColes opened with ‘nothing over a #shilling’ in  1914 (clearly based on the US Woolworths nothing over a dime model). Judging from the old photo though it was maybe a bit to the south of the 1930s store...update it wasn’t here at all it was a couple of blocks up at 288 Smith St, there goes that ‘fact’ ! The second photo is a similar one somewhere else. Anyway,  by the 2000s it was pretty decrepit which was probably how they got permission, and it was dem maybe by 2010. At least the rebuild is very well done, complete with shopfront. By #JamArchitecture, part of the huge Banco development now called #SmithAndCo, completed in 2015. And it actually has a Coles supermarket!

  • Nu går det att besöka ombyggnaden av Artilleristallarna som Kaka ritat! Både @damatteo orangeri och @artillerietstore har slagit upp dörrarna.

  • The iconic San Francisco cable car system is the world's last manually operated cable car system.

In 1869, Andrew Smith Hallidie witnessed an accident that inspired the idea for a cable car system in San Francisco. Sadly a streetcar drawn by horses over wet cobblestones slid backwards, killing the horses. He got to work immediately & in 1892 the first cable car system in San Francisco began operation. 
The cable cars are pulled by a cable running within a track below the street. Hallidie's successful patents were enforced on other cable car promoters but the fire resulting from the 1906 San Francisco earthquake destroyed the power houses & car barns. A majority of the cable car lines were replaced by city owned overhead electric traction cars.  By 1912, only 8 cable car lines remained & were soon matched by the much improved buses of the era that could now climb steeper hills. Only 3 cable cars remained by 1944.

The cable car system fell through many hardships but people did not want the beloved system to be shut down & fought to keep it running. After two attempts from the city to close the lines, company bankruptcy, repurchase from the city, and 2 full rebuilds by June 21, 1984, the system fully reopened. Of the 23 lines established between 1873-90, only three remain; two routes from downtown near Union Square to Fisherman's Wharf, and a third route along California Street. 
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the cable cars are among the most significant tourist attractions in the city as the vast majority of it’s 7 million annual passengers are tourists. ‌

  • I don’t hate the #SmithAndCo redevelopment in #SmithStreetCollingwood; the #streetscape is appropriately varied rather than monolithic, though it is a bit of a mess really, with taller bits justified by the long lost  #FoyAndGibson frontage, made up of a variety of buildings. The reconstructed Victorian facade is ok too, though should never have been demolish and rebuilt - I found the 2012 #VCAT decision which noted Council didn’t strongly oppose the demolition, or rather couldn’t counter the ‘its falling down’ argument. I’ve head some say the details are too thin, but hey look alright to me - what I don’t like is that the facade only has balconies behind it, with holes in the sides too! I did agree with the dismay at the thought of such a large thing plonked in raffish Smith St back when it was first proposed in 2005 (and approved by then Minister Rob Hulls), not built until 2012-14, and by then Smith St was hipster central, and lots of developments clustering in the streets behind it. I found someone’s essay from 2010 reviewing inner melbs councils failure to reign in developments in the face of various State Governments since Kennett pushing density, without any guidelines like height limits, leading to a zillion VCAT challenges which of course the developers won.

  • Most people come to Arizona for the nature, but there is some incredible architecture and design here too, like the urban experiment @arcosantiarizona. It’s worth a stop on the drive from Phoenix to Sedona. 😎 #millennialmeetsworld

  • How cool is this? On the last night of the CNU conference, the organization held a social event for the members in a upcoming and innovative development site. A dilapidated building has been torn down with plans to rebuild it to today's standards. By preserving the original facade, they will maintain constancy in streetscape and of course heritage & historic relevance. By rebuilding the structure, they will intensify the site, and maximize space efficiency, energy efficiency, and building & fire safety. #smartgrowth #urbandevelopment #realestate #cnu27 @congressforthenewurbanism @teammazzolino

  • Quite unbelievable that the developers got a permit to not only demolish and rebuild this facade, but rebuild it 1.3m to the south so they could squeeze in a fire exit. Originally built in 1936, designed by #HarryNorris (like most #ColesStores) it was on the site of the very first store that #GJColes opened with ‘nothing over a #shilling’ in  1914 (clearly based on the US Woolworths nothing over a dime model). Judging from the old photo though it was maybe a bit to the south of the 1930s store...update it wasn’t here at all it was a couple of blocks up at 288 Smith St, there goes that ‘fact’ ! The second photo is a similar one somewhere else. Anyway,  by the 2000s it was pretty decrepit which was probably how they got permission, and it was dem maybe by 2010. At least the rebuild is very well done, complete with shopfront. By #JamArchitecture, part of the huge Banco development now called #SmithAndCo, completed in 2015. And it actually has a Coles supermarket!

  • haus h4 in #heilbronn . architects: joa. this building is part of a project that showcases the future of urban development and city planning. the new city district #neckarbogen is a crucial part of the #bugaheilbronn exhibitions. i didn't have a chance to have a closer look at all the buildings though, that part alone would mean a whole day of exploring and learning and the grounds of the garden show were huuuuuge. i pinned heilbronn to my 'must re-visit' part of brain, maybe when all of the buga shenanigans are over and done with in autumn/winter or next year.

  • * A more meaningful and comprehensive approach to the design of our cities is biomorphic urbanism — an approach that will protect ecological systems and regenerate the environment. Cities comprise of 2 systems : Ecological and anthropogenic. Hence, architects and designers should always design  around these systems without neglecting the other for a balanced community. ⁣

SOM’s master plan for Jigna Eco-community addresses the challenges presented by rapid urban growth in Abuja, Nigeria's capital. Situated on 757 hectares bordering Abuja's Outer Northern Expressway, a short commute from the city center, Jigna creates a sustainable community that will provide a tranquil urban lifestyle in a visually stunning and ecologically rich location. ⁣

The design seeks to protect and enhance the site’s unique natural terrain, situated in the lush green hillsides between the existing city and the Usuma reservoir. The variety of topographic conditions informs the character of each of Jigna’s neighborhoods. Sensitive to the environment, the project provides a model for future urban communities in Africa as well as the Caribbean countries.⁣
