23.10.7
Wow. We have a big round of news for you.
...........> We were quite excited to see the house we designed for the
Elysium development in Issue 10 of Mark Magazine's Notice Board. MARK is our favourite architecture mag at the moment and we all fight over who gets to read it when a fresh one appears in the office- so it's a real honour to be noticed on the notice board.
...........> The same Elysium house was also featured in a recent blog entry on The Age newspapers site about turf roofs, which you can check out
here
...........> Speaking of which,
here are some amusing shots of the sitework on the Napier St house, which is currently under construction. A rather large hole in the ground on a tight inner-city site is all well and good, but how do you get the equipment out once you've dug it in... ?
...........> And once it's filled back up again, some of that impressive hole be glowing with a red-tiled spa, to match an earlier renovation we did to the same house-
here are some shots of the very red bathroom.
...........> While we are on the topic of that delicious colour, AMA was recently profiled in 'Red' magazine, which you may have seen floating around cafes and the like in Melbourne- essentially real estate listings dressed up with an eye-catching cover. Click
here to see the article and a pic of us all on the roof of our office squinting at the Melbourne skyline.
...........> ... and from the home of the skyline, we were recently profiled as "Architect of the Week" on Chicago-based website
New City Skyline - wedged straight after Steven Holl which isn't such a bad place to be.
...........> The wedgy love continues: Detail '08 has been released, and we're thrilled to see our teeny little Essex St House included in the line up alongside buildings by Zaha Hadid, Frank Gehry, Bernard Tschumi and Thomas Heatherwick. Check out the rest of the roll-call
here.
...........> More Essex St?! Okay, there are some new photos of the interior by the very talented Dan Mahon up - check them out
here
..........> And more new photos- this time of a spanking new building! We're pleased to announce that
Tattoo House in North FItzroy has been completed. A double-storey extension to a traditional brick home, with a deft response to council overlooking rules and a customised AMA tattoo.
Check out our messy, lived in shots
here, and stay tuned for the shiny professional ones ...
.........> Even MORE new pics?! Yes! Check out some new shots of Skene Place by the multi-talented Kevin Hui up
here
.........> ... which are different than the pics featured in
this article on Skene Place recently published in the September/October issue of Vogue Living
.........> ... which also ran a shot of the bathroom of the Sproule House, the very first AMA commission from way back when. Which is reassuring, to see it's not yet deemed dated by the style police. More Vogue Living September/October
here
...........> ... and from there we complete the circle, back to the very edge of NOW, with a little
video of one of our latest houses, an addition to an impressive 19th-century home in urban Melbourne. 28.09.7
...........> In the Financial Review today there are a couple of wonderful big images of the Essex Street house in Stephen Crafti's great article about the use of recycled materials in housing. Get down to the newsagent and grab a copy.
20.08.7
...........> The wonderful folks at
Pol Oxygen have written an extremely flattering article about Andrew. They have created a monster though. In the article they call Andrew ROCKET MAN, and like a true geek he now wants everyone in the office to address him by that name [he may even get a t-shirt made]. So we may soon be called Rocket Man Architects or Buck Rogers Architects if Andrew gets his way. You can get your hands on the latest Pol Oxygen mag in Newsagents now and you can download "Rocket Man's" article here. Geek.
...........> We have given birth to triplets. We were recently commissioned to submit a proposal to design 3 x 40 storey towers at the Kuala Lumpur City Centre on a site facing the Petronas towers. After many weeks [and weekends] of toil we sent the design to KL for assessment. We are quite stoked by the design. We will have images available soon.
...........> Well the Ctrl Shift conference was fantastic. Andrew gave a lecture, a tute and ran a workshop during the week long event. There are now heaps of photos of the conference floating around the web such as
here and here. Enjoy.

here to download the PDF.

15.08.7

...........> Andrew is giving an "open to the public" lecture at the school of architecture at Melbourne Uni on the 23rd at 6pm, ALL WELCOME.
...........> 3x40 storey towers in Malaysia, fingers crossed.
...........> Lots of recent media, (1)ABSTRACT mag from Brussels has a 5 page spread about the Essex Street House [pdf here], (2)Vogue Living has done a spread about the Skene house and the Sproule house, (3)The latest DQ mag has a short rant from Andrew about the "problems" inherent with the emergence of the "design celebrity".
...........> Andrew recently gave his first lecture via Skype. Andrew spoke about the development of AMA from when he was a student through to today. After overcoming some technical difficulties the lecture was a huge success.

Check it out here and here. The following is an extract from the exhibition "Andrew Maynard Architects have carved a niche for themselves in their home country of Australia. The media savvy and technologically aware office is unafraid of mixing big conceptual designs with beautifully conceived small-scale residential works."
...........> We are very chuffed to have received the award for Best Designed Exhibition Stand at this years DesignEx for our design of the Pol Oxygen stand. We will have images of the stand soon.
...........> We recently employed Mark Austin. Mark is nothing short of a ninja. Mark is older and far wiser than Andrew. He is an extremely talented architect and project manager who has subtly different and complementary skill sets to Andrew. Mark adds rigour, efficiency and diligent process to Andrew's often lofty and adventurous ideas. Mark has taken up a senior role in the office. Click here to see Mark's profile.

...........> Two links with deceptive pictures to accompany them: a Yellow Pages story about spaces without walls here (the stock photo isn't one of our works), and a Lifestyle Channel profile of Andrew here illustrated with some ugly bloke from the show- fair enough though as Andrew is uglier.

21.02.7
...........> We have been getting a lot of interesting feedback about our new experimental housing project Corb V2.0. Arguably the most interesting comes from Archinect where John Jourden has pointed out a strong relationship between Corb V2.0 and another design. It appears that in a number of ways, the incredibly clever folk at LOT/EK got there first with their MDU scheme. The ensuring forum entries at Archinect, while making us at AMA look slightly silly, make for interesting reading on the issue of authenticity.

18.02.7
...........> We are very excited to be asked to have the Essex St house appear in next years DETAIL '08 journal. This years DETAIL '07 Journal had wonderful houses and buildings by firms such as OMA, Libeskind, Norman Foster, Kengo Kuma, Klein Dytham and Tado Ando.

...........> From the US, Architecture Week will be featuring an article about us next week called HIGH CONCEPT MEETS INDUSTRIAL REALITY ... " Australian architect Andrew Maynard is bursting with theories. He develops concepts such as "malleable space" into architectural "products" such as a mobile bedroom unit. He acknowledges such conversions are rarely smooth: “Reality is always getting our floaty idealized concepts dirty, and that is half of the fun.” Next week architect and writer Leigh Christy will explain why Essex Street House, Maynard's latest experiment in malleable space, is earning him worldwide attention for both its floaty concepts and its dirty reality."

16.02.7
...........> Check out our new housing development scheme called Corb V2.0. Every apartment changes its location every couple of days. It was recently described on TREEHUGGER as "It is beyond brilliant. Best idea of the Year". Here for more.

It has been featured on the Lifestyle Channel's HOMES SHOW, it has been in a number of newspapers, it has had extensive coverage in HOUSES, TRENDS, VOGUE, Mocoloco, Inhabitat, on the Pol Oxygen website, as well as many many other mags, blogs, websites and even a couple of books. The response to our modest design has been fantastic. We have now been asked by the Essex St client to add a new pavilion to the rear of the same block. So soon we will have another interesting form to engage with the already successful project. more soon.

They even got to meet the then President of Hungary, lucky guys. Check it out here.

17.01.7
...........> We are all stoked that Andrew Maynard Architects has been named in SDQ magazines's list of TOP TEN Forces and Faces in Design. The article will be available in Issue 25 soon.

16.01.7
...........> Andrew recently had his ugly mug in an issue of Melbourne's CITY WEEKLY magazine. The article is about how Generation Y are set to change the face of Melbourne. We found this odd as we all thought that Andrew was part of Generation X or at the very least stuck in purgatory inbetween the trendy labels. And while I have your attention, we should clarify that Andrew is a geek. He likes computers, chess and Star wars. We all giggle whenever we see an article that suggests that he is cool.
