Course teaches students intricacies of curating an exhibition

When it was first built in 1916, Villa Vizcaya-now known as Vizcaya Museum and Gardens-was the grand Italian villa vacation home of affluent businessman James Deering. Today, it draws thousands of visitors a year. It is also one of Vanessa Lopez Trujillo's favorite buildings. Now the fourth-year University of Miami School of Architecture student is taking a deep dive into its history, along with that of the Freedom Tower and the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables.

Computers heat buildings

Architecture - Research Management

Zero heat waste: This is the goal of a dozen European companies and research institutions, including Empa, in the Horizon Europe project HEATWISE. The focus is on buildings with extensive IT loads. All waste heat from these systems is to be integrated and utilized in the buildings.

What can cities do to promote acceptance of densification?

Environment - Architecture

Swiss cities are more likely to accept densification when densification projects provide affordable housing and green spaces compared to densification that is implemented through reduced regulations for housing construction. By prioritizing a socio-ecological densification, extensive planning procedures and delays might be minimized.
