Interior Design in Florence

BY JURI FAVILLI
@ VOL 1 ON MAR 02, 2012

In this presentation, Juri Favilli covers an architectural renovation project for a flat in the middle of Florence's old town. The concept was to have new living areas in which most of the home's functions were placed in the walls. You end up with a living space with almost no furniture, which answered the client's request of wanting an "ordered home." (in Italian)

Shop Houses

BY TAY PRUECKSAMARS
@ VOL 6 ON OCT 03, 2012

Urban planner Tay Pruecksamars attempts to summarize the research and work he has done in the past year. In particular he focuses on shop houses, which are generally despised by architects and urban designers, but which can serve multiple purposes, and use their space much more efficiently than many other types of buildings. In his book he proposes solutions to problems facing modern urban designers, and takes a closer look at the shop house problem.
