After a strong finish to 2011 and slow start 2012 (slow only in terms of blogging), I would like to share this really cool project with you.
For those interested in becoming Architects, Architecture Education is offered in an increasing amount of ways. From night school to accredited online degree programs, it is possible to participate in the evolution of structure and design. Design and community inspire learning and technological advancements expand the possibilities for what will stand and what will not. The movement toward a environmentally friendly society also creates a need for students who have fresh ideas and a green thumb, so to speak. In the coming decades, the need for students with the knowledge necessary to convert old buildings into efficient ones will give many a chance at a career that makes an impact on the beauty and function of the world around them.
Designed by Mima Architects, the Mima House has a modular structure and can be divided into rooms with a grid of removable partitions.
This prefabricated house in Portugal costs about the same price to manufacture as a family car (all photographs by José Campos).
Plywood panels transform the windows into walls to create privacy where necessary.
