Wilderness and concrete

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

1. Curbed NY’s Camera Obscura provides a last glimpse of the accidental wilderness in Hunter’s Point South, the site that will soon be home to apartments and waterfront parkland.

2. The Los Angeles Times imagines its city’s potential for more parkland and public housing through the closure of specific stretches of highway.

3. New York Magazine questions why many architects don’t listen, literally, as building noise levels can both quietly unnerve and loudly disorient their occupants.

4. Wired presents a photo gallery of 2015’s captivating designs, from mountain museums to iceberg architecture.

5. Artspace profiles Mariko Mori’s upcoming project for the 2016 Rio Olympics, a pearlescent acrylic ring positioned above the Treze Waterfall.
