Design for manufacturing

Katerra strives to become a leading design-build firm with an integrated approach to production, architectural services, and construction.

For the past decade, San Antonio-based design firm Lake|Flato has been refining its Porch House concept, a system of modules with floor-to-ceiling windows and connecting porches that link the single-family structure to the outdoors.

 

'Athleticscapes' give colleges a recruiting edge

These sports and recreation facilities go beyond glitzy buildings to tell a school’s story and reinforce the student-athlete’s self-perception.

It has long been apparent that colleges and universities are engaged in an arms race to attract top student-athletes, with ammunition that includes extravagant training centers and stadiums.

 

The great indoors

Bringing nature inside to improve the well-being of occupants has become a design imperative.

There has been much discussion lately about architecture and biophilia, defined as the inclination of humans to connect with nature.
