Since the Cold War, one of the most challenging and urgent tasks facing governments around the world has been the disposal of transuranic nuclear waste.  As a by-product from nuclear weaponry production, transuranic waste is not only harmful, but also boasts a formidable decay process lasting thousands of years.

One such disposal site  is the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) in New Mexico, United States. To ensure public safety, it is imperative that the site remain undisturbed for the duration of the waste’s decay process. (more…)

Results: Hong Kong Pixel Home Competition

The Hong Kong Pixel Home Competition calls into question the perennial typological challenge of multi-unit housing, prescient in consideration of expanding populations and parallel urban growth. The contemporary urban condition is distressed by housing shortages distinguished by inflationary markets and increased economic disparity. Residents are confronted by an increasingly ballooning compromise between capital and comfort. The Hong Kong Pixel Home Competition seeks solutions that would stem this trend through typological disruption, reconsidering entrenched structures and expectations of contemporary housing, with ambition of innovating or reinventing conventional forms of domesticity through the agency of architecture. Precedented by the ethic of Metabolism and New Brutalism of the last century, the competition invites anticipation of aggregatory formal, technological, and material strategies predicated on modularity and repetition in pursuit of challenging contemporary forms of urbanity. Successful projects explore the consequence of density, amenity, and public and private adjacency, with consideration of novel approaches to domestic propriety, culture, and tradition. (more…)
