Architype Review was created as a means through which to advance the discussion of design within specific building typologies and explore the influence that type has on the design process. The primary goal of Architype Review is to honor those projects that are challenging the limits and redefining the norms of certain building types.
Architype Review was created in 2006 by a group of architects, academics and designers seeking a forum through which to promote discussion and evaluate architectural projects that are responding to a similar set of challenging issues. They strive to find work that represents a wide range of voices within the profession. In addition, Architype Review seeks to become a design resource for architects, students, clients and educators promoting innovation in the field.
Currently featured on Architype Review is an overview of the Shanghai World Expo, featuring the Danish Pavilion by BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group. Bjarke Ingels will be presenting a lecture at the BAC on Tuesday, October 26th, 2010 as part of the BAC’s Fall 2010 Student Lecture Series.
