To promote and foster the development and circulation of architectural ideas, Pamphlet Architecture is again offering an opportunity for architects, designers, theorists, urbanists, and landscape architects to publish their projects, manifestos, ideas, theories, ruminations, insights, and hopes for the future of the designed and built world. With far-ranging topics including the alphabet, algorithms, machines, and music, each Pamphlet is unique to the individual or group who authors it. This call for ideas seeks projects that possess the rigor and excitement found throughout the rich history of Pamphlet Architecture.

How a Brooklyn brownstone became a low-energy passive house

"It’s a ‘machine for living’. The air within the house changes once every three hours with the ventilation system".

Nice article in The Financial Times where Julie Torres Moskovitz, designer of the passive house in Park Slope, Brooklyn, discusses her energy-efficient home. Torres Moskovitz is also the author of The Greenest Home: Superinsulated and Passive House Design, available now.
