Creative and crooked

This Friday we’re highlighting compelling work in the built environment, from Arup and beyond.

1. Nigel Sussman offers his artistic interpretation of our San Francisco office’s 30-year legacy with a time-lapse video of his project-based mural coming to life.

2. Atlas Obscura discards the idea of symmetrical beauty, arguing that crookedness has more to say about fortitude and enduring architecture.

3. Building Design + Construction Magazine highlights the capabilities and deficiencies of virtual reality technologies, as well as the companies who are using them for unique design projects.

4. Science of Us delves into the psychology of “meh” as recent studies show that boring architecture, contrary to what one might think, actually generates more feelings of stress than hectic, varied building design.

5. Arup’s Janine Witko writes in Facility Executive about how recent water conservation crises have illustrated the need for increasingly efficient water usage technologies.
