With fourc3 Carl redesigned and developed Square 134 Architects’ new web site, square134.com. Carl and Lisa have a long history with Square and Ron Schneck, the firm’s principal architect. In 2006 Lisa became their first employee. Now, more than five years later their presence on the web is leaner and bolder.

Guastavino websites

Carl re-designed the site of MIT-based Guastavino project, led by John Ochsendorf and built a blog to organize activity surrounding the publication of Professor Ochsendorf’s new book, Guastavino Vaulting: The Art of Structural Tile. Part of this project entailed moving an excel spreadsheet with statistics about thousands of Guastavino online in a web-friendly format. Guastavino vaults are everywhere–probably even near you. New examples are still being added to the database though, and we have out sights on a wiki-interface for preservationists, explorers and connoisseurs to contribute to the already huge collection of photos and stats.

Websites for teaching

When we teach we often design a website along with the design of the course. (Computing Drawing Space at The BAC Fall ’11,computer applications in architecture at UMD Fall ’09, computer applications in architecture at UMD Spring ’10, and digital graphics and the Corcoran) Carl has also worked with Jonathan Healey, who teaches at the Corcoran and University of Maryland, to develop websites for some of his courses (advanced digital graphics at the Corcoran, and of special interest: the famous favicon exercise). We see teaching as a creative act, so it’s important for us to frame the collective effort of the students in the class.  Of course websites are pedagogical too–regular, public critique and presentation are foundational in a healthy, substantive and progressive design culture.

Carl partnered with Brian Tomaino to make his website.  We adapted wordpress to work as a portfolio and used the content itself to define the space of the site.

Postcards and posters for multiple functions work together to deepen Square134′s brand. Consistent but flexible typographic and graphic systems allow each item a unique character despite being part of a family of material. Versioning and an iterative design process allow the client to be a collaborator.

Energy + Light + Control

Lee Odess envisioned an expanding platform for commentary, advocacy, education and services to support his young but fast-growing company. This site frames a variety of content types–video, images, links, and articles. Existing web technologies (vimeo, twitter, and wordpress) are adapted to create a “back-stage” for the website. The Energy + Light + Control team interact with those technologies to update video, news and content anytime from anywhere without touching any databases or code. Content on energylightcontrol.com is tagged and categorized so everything is cross-referenced and searchable. The site format allows the Energy + Light + Control team to use the interface as a presentation tool on a laptop or iPad. Carl Lostritto worked with Jonathan Healey on this project.
