  • Call for Entries: Pamphlet Architecture 35

    Dates: 17 Jun – 01 Sep, 2014

    Following the success of the inaugural call for entries, which produced the Pamphlets 23–30, Pamphlet Architecture, with renewed support from the National Endowment for the Arts, announces the 2014 competition.

    To promote and foster the development and circulation of architectural ideas, Pamphlet Architecture is again offering an opportunity for architects, designers, theorists, urbanists, and landscape architects to publish their projects, manifestos, ideas, theories, ruminations, insights, and hopes for the future of the designed and built world. With far-ranging topics including the alphabet, algorithms, machines, and music, each Pamphlet is unique to the individual or group who authors it. This call for ideas seeks projects that possess the rigor and excitement found throughout the rich history of Pamphlet Architecture.

    The deadline for submissions is September 1, 2014. The winning entry will engage important issues facing architecture, landscape architecture, and/or urban design today in a way that is as visually provocative as it is intellectually compelling. The winner will be given a grant of $2,500 to develop the proposal into an 80-page, black and white, 7-by-8½-inch book, which will be published by Pamphlet Architecture, Ltd. / Princeton Architectural Press as Pamphlet Architecture 35. The outcome of the competition will be announced here on September 12, 2014, and entrants will be notified by email.

  • Green Jobs, Green Justice, and Building Capacity in Urban Communities

    St. Louis | Dates: 17 Jun, 2014

    In many U.S. cities, efforts at stimulating green economic development strategies are yielding promising results. In historically distressed communities, however, extreme economic distress and environmental injustice bring additional challenges to any sort of capacity building. Sarah Coffin, Ph.D., Saint Louis University urban planning professor, explores how urban planning and policy researchers uncover the barriers to green economic development and identify the missing community capacity elements that can help promote green jobs and green justice.

  • NY14 Passive House Conference & Expo

    New York | Dates: 17 Jun, 2014

    Passive House, the leading international building standard for high-performance and low-energy construction, is undergoing a transformational focus toward the big buildings we use and occupy every day.   No longer the exclusive bastion of single home “first adopter” pioneers, Passive House is now focusing on our apartment buildings, our schools, shops and office buildings.

    NY14 Passive House Conference & Expo is an exploration of these bigger, universal building types, with presentations showcasing concrete examples by leading practitioners from around the world.  It is also an Expo of leading component and service providers that cater specifically to the Passive House market.   Both the conference and expo are focused on delivering information to professionals.

    So if you design, build or own big buildings, this expo will give you the practical context to go Passive.  See you Tuesday, June 17th in New York City.

    About Passive House: Passive House is an international building standard developed by the Passive House Institute (PHI), located in Darmstadt, Germany.  Building to the Passive House Standard reduces our buildings’ operational energy demand to an optimized extent through passive measures and components such as insulation, airtightness, heat recovery, solar heat gains, solar shading and incidental internal heat gains.   Passive House reliably delivers up to approximately a 90% reduction in heating and cooling demand and up to a 75% reduction in overall primary energy demand when compared to our existing building stock.   Passive House buildings affordably and predictably provide the most resilient, comfortable and healthy interior environments.  For more information on its meaning read NYPH blog posts:
