3 innovative companies in architecture
on Wednesday,March 16,2011 20:03
Those who are contemplating getting their design degree in architecture may not know where to head after that, but may be relieved to know that there are some companies that are still breaking boundaries with their innovative designs. FastCompany.com recently listed some of the most ground-breaking businesses.
First up is Snohetta, which has followed a new trend of blending buildings into landscapes. This can make for an organic and natural setting that is especially pertinent in 2011, when many are thinking about how they can go green. The news source also highlights the social experience that is offered by the unique design.
Big is another firm which has accomplished a number of impressive projects with a relatively small pool of experienced architects. From a pyramidal residence tower in Manhattan to attempting to turn a waste treatment facility into an urban ski slope, this company is redefining the limits and creativity of the industry.
In the field of education, Foreign Office Architects is a notable forerunner. It has created the digital media education at Ravensbourne College, a building which includes social media in its very design.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics states that the field of architecture will grow faster than the national average. Around 21 percent of the architects in this industry are self-employed, offering a degree of freedom that is unavailable in many other positions.
