A study section model done by juniors Will Allen and Pedro Mendez, led by professor J.P. Allen. These models explore the possibility of a flexible structure to accommodate for the changing needs of the residents in response to an ever changing urban environment. A flexible structure along the Fort Point Channel will allow for residents to modify the built environment in order to create spaces that they can continue to utilize despite the threat of flooding. The structure and piping create a permanent frame to allow shipping containers to be plugged in and modified according to the needs of the resident. . . . #architecture #architecturelovers #next_top_architects #design #architectureschool #witarch #archifreaks #critday #archiarchive #architecturedesign #archdaily #imadethat #superarchitects #archisource #architecturedrawling #art #architecturemodel #architecturephotography #designschool #igart #student #drawing #architecturefactor #sketch #wisearchitecture
Juniors Steve Lotter and Noah Sheburne explore Growth from the Dudley Square site that arises from Boston’s insatiable quest to advance along with the rapidly changing technological landscape. While the Roxbury area may have been left behind in these advancements, the addition of this mixed-use residential building aims to jump start the process while catering to the community needs and vibrant culture in the area. The building welcomes this change by cultivating both public and private green spaces. The union of the site and its buildings become both dynamic and didactic as the space welcomes the community into classrooms and retail spaces to educate on how to maintain and spread the knowledge for a healthier urban fabric. . . . #architecture #architecturelovers #next_top_architects #design #architectureschool #witarch #archifreaks #critday #archiarchive #architecturedesign #archdaily #imadethat #superarchitects #archisource #architecturedrawling #art #architecturemodel #architecturephotography #designschool #igart #student #drawing #architecturefactor #sketch #wisearchitecture

The last four days in Mexico were spent on the Yucatan Peninsula, staying in Merida and traveling out to different cities each day to study how various communities use surface treatment as a method to engage with architecture. Izamal, known as the Yellow City is a city full of character and great people! . . #architecture #architecturelovers #next_top_architects #design #architectureschool #witarch #archifreaks #critday #archiarchive #architecturedesign #archdaily #imadethat #superarchitects #archisource #architecturedrawling #art #architecturemodel #architecturephotography #designschool #igart #student #drawing #architecturefactor #sketch #wisearchitecture
Explorations: Creating memorable experiences is sometimes just plain fun! When students weren’t experiencing architecture, they were experiencing the culture, the city, and everything that Mexico had to offer, including our personal favorite: The Cenotes. . . #architecture #architecturelovers #next_top_architects #design #architectureschool #witarch #archifreaks #critday #archiarchive #architecturedesign #archdaily #imadethat #superarchitects #archisource #architecturedrawling #art #architecturemodel #architecturephotography #designschool #igart #student #drawing #architecturefactor #sketch #wisearchitecture
One can’t go to Mexico without also seeing and experiencing the amazing work of Luis Barragán. While some locations we weren’t allowed to take photographs or sketches, his work at Casa Prieto Lopez and Casa Gilardi are featured in this post! Barragáns’ intense use of color and playing with light are the most defining qualities of his spaces; and getting to see them in person offers a feeling unparalleled to the images. . . . #architecture #architecturelovers #next_top_architects #design #architectureschool #witarch #archifreaks #critday #archiarchive #architecturedesign #archdaily #imadethat #superarchitects #archisource #architecturedrawling #art #architecturemodel #architecturephotography #designschool #igart #student #drawing #architecturefactor #sketch #wisearchitecture
Our travels to Benin were truly life-changing, and what impacted each of us the most were the people. Every person we walked by said “Bonjour!” to us with a smile and a wave, kids would come from all over to dance and play, and we were instantly welcomed and felt like part of the community. We have created such a strong bond with these people in only ten days time, and are excited about the opportunity to develop this relationship throughout the semester! ALSO. SWIPE to see our traditional clothes created from our fabrics that we chose. . . . #architecture #architecturelovers #next_top_architects #design #architectureschool #witarch #archifreaks #critday #archiarchive #architecturedesign #archdaily #imadethat #superarchitects #archisource #architecturedrawling #art #architecturemodel #architecturephotography #designschool #igart #student #drawing #architecturefactor #sketch #wisearchitecture
The village of Akpakpa Dodomey is the focus of the Benin Studio. Our group worked to analyze this site – taking measurements, photographs, and conducting interviews with the community members. It was so valuable to hear the perspectives of the people in the village, and they were more than willing to help us with our investigations . . #architecture #architecturelovers #next_top_architects #design #architectureschool #witarch #archifreaks #critday #archiarchive #architecturedesign #archdaily #imadethat #superarchitects #archisource #architecturedrawling #art #architecturemodel #architecturephotography #designschool #igart #student #drawing #architecturefactor #sketch #wisearchitecture
We had a blast on a boat ride touring Ganvié, a village entirely built in a lake. Everyone travels via boats, with the village being nicknamed “The Venice of Africa!” The most unique part of our day was watching kids make “sails” for their little boats with sheets of cloth. . . . . #architecture #architecturelovers #next_top_architects #design #architectureschool #witarch #archifreaks #critday #archiarchive #architecturedesign #archdaily #imadethat #superarchitects #archisource #architecturedrawling #art #architecturemodel #architecturephotography #designschool #igart #student #drawing #architecturefactor #sketch #wisearchitecture
Benin, Africa - Lead by Professor John Ellis . The Benin Studio visited the Songhai Center, an agricultural training center where people go to work and learn more about ecological systems. We also went to the Zinsou Foundation, a museum highlighting the tradition of wax print cloth and the stories behind the patterns. It was so fun to go buy our own cloth and design what we wanted our traditional outfits to look like! . . #architecture #architecturelovers #next_top_architects #design #architectureschool #witarch #archifreaks #critday #archiarchive #architecturedesign #archdaily #imadethat #superarchitects #archisource #architecturedrawling #art #architecturemodel #architecturephotography #designschool #igart #student #drawing #architecturefactor #sketch #wisearchitecture
Interactions: Over our time in Spain we spent 3 days in Girona. During this time we were able to connect with students studying architecture at Girona university. We are currently working with them to share site analysis for a Boston site that they will be working with this semester. Barcelona, Spain - Travel studio lead by Professor Manuel Delgado . . . . .

Reposted from @wentwortharchitecture - This kinetic façade was designed under the instruction of Prof. Troy Peters by seniors: Casey Clement, Jake Pirulli, and Bobby Dortona. This multi-layered system uses a series of electromagnets to shift the perforated aluminum panels along tracks to shade the interior spaces throughout the work day. The animation is part of a conceptual mid-review that was shown to reviewers before moving forward with a more detailed design. . . . . #architecture #architecturelovers #next_top_architects #design #architectureschool #witarch #archifreaks #critday #archiarchive #architecturedesign #archdaily #imadethat #superarchitects #archisource #architecturedrawling #art #architecturemodel #architecturephotography #designschool #igart #student #drawing #architecturefactor #sketch #wisearchitecture - #regrann
