Ford Motor Company and the Chicago Architecture Foundation have joined forces to bring you yet another amazing live webcast, following up on their successful Design with a Conscience discussion seen here just last month. We’re extending a special e-vitation to Inhabitat readers to join us for ‘Big Ideas in Small Spaces: Proportion in Design‘, a panel discussion where leading Chicago architects Diane Atwood of the Atwood Foundation, John Gately of Jahn, Gensler‘s Carlos Martinez, and legendary car designer and Ford’s group vice president of design and chief creative officer J Mays will be discussing how architects and automotive designers can maximize aesthetics and functionality to create innovative designs that are comfortable, efficient, and beautiful. We’ll be live streaming this discussion on Inhabitat.com, and our esteemed panel will be discussing similarities between their creative processes that have led to some of Chicago’s most famous buildings and the design of super comfortable compact cars like the new Ford Fiesta and the elegant Ford Fusion. Join us live on June 6th to participate in this design discussion. We also encourage you to take part in the conversation by submitting your questions for the speakers below in the comments! We’ll be sending Inhabitat t-shirts to selected question submitters, so join in!

We narrowed all the entries we received down to just 30 finalists, and then left it up to Inhabitat readers to decide which two designs were most deserving of $1000 prizes from Elemental LED.

VIDEO: Mitchell Joachim on How to Grow a Treehouse with TeReForm

March 5th, 2013 No comments

We love treehouses here at Inhabitat, and are enamored with eco-architect Mitchell Joachim’s visionary ideas about how to grow living treehouses from ficus molded around frame structures. We’ve covered these brilliantly playful architectural ideas before on Inhabitat, but now we have a video from Mitchell Joachim explaining the details of how they work. Joachim does much better justice to his future-forward ecological designs than we are able to do in a mere post, so if you have any interest in living treehouses (and we know you do), check out this fascinating video above.

INHABITAT INTERVIEW: Water Architect Koen Olthuis on Floating Buildings & Hydro-Cities

February 21st, 2013 No comments

Architect Koen Olthuis of Waterstudio.nl has been fascinating the Inhabitat editors for years with his innovative floating buildings and aqua-tecture. Far from being confined by convention — or by the boundaries of dry land — Olthuis has made a name for himself as an architect who pushes the boundaries of possibility when it comes to the built environment. With a studio focused on designing floating buildings for a future water world, Waterstudio.nl has designed everything from floating apartment complexes in the Netherlands to a floating mosque in the UAE to even an entire floating community of islands for the Maldives. While we’ve spoken in depth with Koen before about flood-resistant architecture, floating buildings and what he calls ‘sustainaquality’ — in the light of the latest tragedies that have hit Japan, we have to ask: how and relevant and sound is water architecture for today’s concerns? Read our exclusive interview where Olthuis explains the sustainability of building on water, as well as how he uses 3D modeling technology to help both clients and skeptics visualize how building on water could change the world.

This interview is brought to you by Autodesk – Accelerating Better Design.
