How to Complete Society's Complementary Function

PRESENTED ON JUL 11, 2015
IN TAIPEI @ VOL 25

From Taipei Vol. 25 - The Imagination of Social Housing

Bo-Ting Zeng
, Architect, has worked on how to make the social housing design become more interesting. From the point of considering the family member's needs basing on different resident age, to have a good quality of life. For example, allowing the retired elders to take care of the young children so that the young people would have no worries at their work. It will complete people's complementary function in society. Shifting the public space from the lower floors to a higher one and so on would also play alternative imagination of social housing.

曾柏庭 建築師 思考如何讓社會住宅設計得更有趣,從家人不同年齡的居住需求做為考量點,如何有良好的生活品質,例如讓退休的高齡者照顧幼兒,讓青壯年人安心工作,達成人們在社會中的互補功能,也可把公共空間從低樓層移到高樓層等,發揮社會住宅的另類想像。

Complete Streets

BY STEPHEN O'MALLEY
@ DESIGN FRINGE POWERED BY PECHAKUCHA ON MAR 03, 2015

Stephen O'Malley of Civic Engineers is exploring the dynamics of streets since the 1950's  and how that may contribute to the lifestyle we are interested in. Now that we are all confronted with the street traffic, its domination and its perceived "freedom", we need more harmony and balance between creativity, science, imagination and nature.

Let's Build a City

BY VIRGIL IERUBINO
@ VOL 6 ON SEP 13, 2016

Virgil Ierubino asks if you could build a city from the ground up, how would you do it? I don't just mean the buildings. By 'city' I mean the collection of humans and facilities and services and systems that collectively form a functioning society. Would you make different decisions than those which are made for us, all around us, every day? Or, realising that this question assumes you are in a position of considerable power, maybe you'd just go nuts?

This was "Presentation of the Day" on June 11th, 2017.

Rethinking Resettlement

BY ERKIN ÖZAY
@ VOL 18 ON SEP 24, 2016

"How can we make our endeavors clear and approachable enough that we can actually contribute to the public debate at a very high level?"

In Rethinking Resettlement from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 18, Assistant Professor of Architecture at the University at Buffalo, Erkin Özay, reviews some of the social and design issues involved in rehousing and supporting Buffalo, New York's new Americans. Özay's Spring 2016 UB graduate studio explored the potential for temporary and long-term housing for newly arrived refugees and immigrants, as well as the role of supporting institutions, community assets, and reimagining the existing housing stock. Özay's project investigates "compassionate urbanism." He is interested in how groups of limited means--new and existing residents--support each other through careful intersections.
