‪#‎tbt‬ to 1992, when Peter Rose's master plan for the +Old Port of Montreal / le Vieux-Port de Montréal won a Citation from the Progressive Architecture Awards.

Peter Rose + Partners's reimagining of the Montréal waterfront at Old Port resurrected the site’s urban history as a bustling industrial port while creating a new promenade and flexible space for programming. In keeping with this ethos, you can now visit Old Port to see two scenes from Cité Mémoire, a public art project that presents stories based on Montréal’s rich history.

What do you do when you want to convert a historic building steps away from the Louvre into a modern, industrial cultural center, featuring galleries, cafe, and gathering spaces?

You turn to +Peter Rose + Partners.
 
Two blocks from the Louvre museum in Paris, Le Laboratoire required the transformation of the historic Parisian urban fabric into a modern industrial loft to house an art and science cultural science center. Accommodating existing construction dating from the past several centuries, the project carved, from stone and cast iron, spaces for the exhibition and creation of works about the intersection of science and art.

The project uncovers an existing glass block floor to bring atrium light into gallery and gathering space. The existing atrium at entry level is reclaimed as a circulation node, allowing access to office space, newly created street level retail, and the cultural center entry. Moving into Le Laboratoire, a stair is cut through three levels, creating and connecting display, meeting, and entertainment spaces.

Thoughtful, sustainable design + absurd ROI = very good architecture, indeed.

"I think that this building will not look modern at first glance. In fact, it is intentionally set up in such a way that it will recede a little. The building will create opportunities in the landscape for movement and for vistas. In some ways it will knit things together. but if you look carefully, you will recognize that it is contemporary in its detail and its materials. How the building is made will reveal its time and its respect for craft."

So happy to work for a firm wherein 50% of the architects are women. I see you, +Peter Rose + Partners.

Women architects, in their own words:

“African-American women make up less than 0.3 percent of the architecture industry. There are approximately 300 licensed African-American women architects in the whole of the United States. I am a rarity in the field. It’s overwhelming being in an industry that doesn’t see your demographic enough to correlate it with the occupation you love.”

“My eagerness to learn is perceived as ignorance. My strong voice and firm stance are perceived as ‘bitchiness.’ It’s unlikely and uncommon for women to get commissions, gain corporate clients and to be given high-level responsibility.”

“I did what most successful female architects did before Zaha: I partnered with my husband. Saying that sounds horrible, but I never thought it could be different. I simply chose not to swim against the tide. Yes, he knows I use him sometimes to open the road for me, and he is fine with that.”

One of the cooler -- and honestly, less innovative -- interventions in this master plan: reorienting the street grid and adjusting its slope to maximize both sun exposure and views of water on the horizon.
 
In 2012, following a brief from Sitra, the Finnish Innovation Fund, @Peter Rose + Partners and +Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates developed a low-carbon, high-urban master plan for #Jätkäsaari, #Helsinki, Finland.

Anchored by a highly sustainable and adaptable headquarters for Sitra, the Low2No Master Plan embraces the future-oriented Finnish capital of Helsinki, and charts a new course for the sustainable development of European urban landscapes.

"Looking at the larger picture I would say that I play with and against type; I critique and at the same time I am attracted to typological pieces. I don't make object-buildings. For me everything starts with a connection to type and place. I have only lately understood this. And I can see following this path more consciously in the future - stretching my sense of how far I can go and still hold to a frame of reference. My way of dealing with history, perhaps?"

I can't adequately describe what it's like to encounter East House. It's one of the most subtle, sensory experiences of the built and unbuilt environment possible.
 
#‎tbt‬ to 2014, when Peter Rose + Partners's East House won a +Boston Society of Architects Housing Design Award.

From the jury:

"Located on a coastal bluff, this remarkable island house is divided into separate concrete blocks that can be hoisted up and lifted away from the site should erosion occur. Each box has a rugged concrete exterior and is finished on the interior with stone floors... It’s concrete, but this house feels light. It celebrates materiality with the contrast between its rough exterior and softly detailed interior. A mature architect is at work here. The result is gorgeous."

"Kripalu’s new dorm is a daring and serious building. It’s an experiment in the best sense of that word. This is the kind of architecture we need more of, in a culture that’s become too often wedded to whatever is banal and familiar."
 
#tbt to 2010, when the +Boston Globe celebrated the grand opening of the Housing Tower at the +Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health.

From the Globe:

"Kripalu’s new dorm is a daring and serious building. It’s an experiment in the best sense of that word. This is the kind of architecture we need more of, in a culture that’s become too often wedded to whatever is banal and familiar."

#architecture #sustainabledesign
A remarkable tower of dorm rooms at Kripalu, the yoga and health retreat in the Berkshires, is a precursor of the kind of architecture we'll probably — and hopefully — be seeing more of.

The Old Port of Montréal "does not erase the industrial functions of the place. Instead, it retains the rail line that separates the promenade from the city and the working piers along the water’s edge, while providing ample open space where grain elevators and industrial sheds used to stand. Opposite the historic Bonsecours Market, an artificial island offers a range of recreational opportunities, with a pavilion and bridges that echo the area’s industrial character, and with the foundations of a former pier providing traces of the past."

#urbandesign #masterplanning +Montreal Quebec
 
#tbt to 1992, when Peter Rose's Master Plan for the Old Port of +Montreal Quebec won the Progressive Architecture Awards' Urban Design Citation.

From ARCHITECT Magazine:

"Unlike the faux festival quality of so many North American waterfront redevelopments, the three-mile-long, 131-acre promenade along the old port of Montreal...has a directness and honesty about its past that make it one of the very best of its kind."
Peter Rose’s urban design for the port of Montreal mixes public access with a working waterfront.

When it comes to gyms, I have just a few basic requirements: working treadmills; enough free weights (and enough room to use them); and a not-oppressive atmosphere. To that end, this gym fulfills my needs. But with a pleasant and friendly staff, long hours (which allows for late nights at the office without sacrificing time at the gym), and a ridiculously low price, this one's worthy of my five stars. Full disclosure: it's no Equinox. If you're into being pampered at the gym, this one's not for you.
