  • Log 29: In Pursuit of Architecture.
    new york NEW YORK

    Given the social, economic, environmental, and even media demands on architecture today, how are architectural ideas sustained beyond conception to become buildings? In a special, tenth anniversary issue, Log 29: In Pursuit of Architecture presents ten outstanding architectural projects from the past decade—some well-known, others completely new—in a full-color portfolio format that illustrates the concepts and processes of each building. Selected from an open call for work built since 2003, these buildings illustrate a range of architectural ideas, and together open a conversation about the production and significance of architecture today. To situate the ten-project portfolio, Log 29 includes essays by four critics who reflect on recent and emerging themes in architecture and directions the discipline may develop.

    “The profession of architecture has expanded and now finds itself in a position to engage with a broader series of cultural references. The architect can now refer to film, fashion, literature, philosophy, music, art etc. and as such greatly enrich the cultural side of the profession. However with such an exclusive focus, the functionality of architecture—the rational and scientific side of the profession—is sometimes forgotten. As there is still much to discover in these more pragmatic areas of the practice, I believe that in the future the profession will become increasingly oriented towards knowledge and expertise . . .”

    The Haus am Weinberg is located in a setting that is at one time rural, yet suburban. The location of the villa affords pastoral views of the stepped terraces of an ancient hillside vineyard on one side and cityscape vistas on the other.

    The inner circulation, organisation of the views and the programme distribution of the house are determined by a single gesture, “the twist.” In the Haus am Weinberg the central twist element supports the main staircase as it guides and organises the main flows through the house. The direction of each curve is determined by a set of diagonal movements. Whilst the programme distribution follows the path of the sun, each evolution in the twist leads to moments in which views to the outside become an integral experience of the interior.
