In this special installment of The Modern List, our very own Carey Moran brings us up to speed on the modernism to be explored in one of the epicenters of the design world. Not only is this her second tour as a BUILD intern, she’s also no stranger to Denmark, as a fellow alumna of the DIS program. During this most recent stint abroad, Carey had the unique experience of living and working in Copenhagen the first half of the year with Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter, where interns worked on various competitions ranging from housing to cultural buildings.

ARCHITECTURE
Danes are known for their incredible ability to weave fresh, modernism into the rich, historic fabric of their cities and towns. Their mastery extending beyond the built object, into their beloved public spaces. Even their failures are interesting, like Ørestad. Curating the list was a tough task, but these are spaces and spots that made the cut for architecture and design picks.

MUSEUMS
Denmark has a wide range of museums with several of them combining thoughtful, site-responsive architecture with a memorable interior experience.

FOOD
While the Danes love the inexpensive and ubiquitous pølsevogn, the food scene has been significantly  elevated in recent years. A resurgence in Nordic Cuisine has modernized the traditional menu, focusing heavily on local ingredients. The food is fresh and interesting. Where else can you find birch bark ice cream?

DRINK
Denmark has consistently been voted Happiest Country in the World, and their drinking habits may be the reason why (that, and their modest expectations). From pilsners at a cafe to the latest crazy concoction from Mikkeller (former high-school science teacher, Mikkel Borg Bjergso), Denmark has some of the best watering holes. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that you can drink almost anywhere you want.

RETAIL
Danish design has become synonymous with timeless modernism, so it isn’t a surprise that their retail options are fantastic. Even if you can’t afford the goods, the design eye-candy is enough to whet your architectural appetite.

A couple weeks ago, we reached a small milestone in BUILD history. As with every summer in recent memory, we gathered a group of cyclists to participate in our annual Seattle to Vancouver Invitational Charity Ride (S2V). Last month marked our fifth year, and the crew has a momentum that makes this feel like we’ll continue for many years to come. Our sights are already looking into the distance to the training regimen for 2015. For a look back on previous rides, check our S2V archives: 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013.

Since its start in 2010, BUILD has coordinated and hosted the two-day, 185 mile charity ride which begins on the stoop of the BUILD office in Seattle and culminates in Vancouver, B.C. (unless that’s not enough and you choose to ride the Whistler extension on day three). And S2V 2014 was a big success: we had a tremendous crew with a mix of familiar and fresh faces, the jersey designs continue to evolve (and dare we say improve over previous years), and (no small feat) we finally had a 100% success rate in the “No Passport Left Behind” program. Not to mention, the logging of hundreds of collective training hours to support fitness, camaraderie, and goodwill.

In years past, we’ve raised dollars to support Shelterbox, Washington C.A.S.H., The Hope Center, and this year, we are honored to join up with the Seattle non-profit, Bike Works, to support with our pedaling. A big thanks goes out to our generous donors and supporters who helped us raise a our current total just north of $ 20,000. And it’s never too late to do good, so feel free to click over to the online donation page and continue the goodwill by adding to our running total (just note “S2V” on your donation).

Bike Works is a fantastic Seattle-based non-profit bike shop complete with classes, a repair shop, and cycling resources supporting their immediate community (and cultivating future generations of riders). We want to give a shout out and a big thanks to Marcus (pictured above) for giving us the grand tour of their operations. Check out more about Bike Works and their programs here.

An S2V recap would not be complete without recognizing our jersey designer and jersey vendor. For the third year straight, our very own Charles Caldwell whipped up the smart and stylish jersey design. This year, we tried out a new jersey vendor, Castelli, who provided us with top-notch jerseys (that looked good and felt good). Major props to them for hitting our budget and working within a tight deadline.

Much of our success in crossing that finish line involved the right kind of sustenance to keep our bodies strong and our motivation going. Our friends at Picnic continued their support this year with a generous and delicious spread that covered lunch over the two days. As well, Ciao Thyme hosted a fantastic backyard dinner in Bellingham. All this good eating was a welcome departure from sport bars and still-undetermined-biking-gel-food-goo. As you can see, we really weren’t “roughing it” out there — seriously, how often does a boutique deli cater a 185 mile bike ride? It’s one of the many perks that keeps the ride one of our annual highlights.

And we can’t go without giving a standing ovation to the steadfast leadership and organization of BUILD’s own Kevin Eckert. And as well to our fearless leader on the road, Aaron Pambianco, whose navigation skills can only be compared to that of a Canadian Goose. And we’d truly be lost without the team manager and the steady SAGwagon hand that our man Gary Plaunt provides.

Among our generous donors, many wonderful folks in the BUILD community stepped up to support us by giving generously to Bike Works. We’d like to extend special thanks to all who gave, particularly to our very generous leaders, Greg & Margo Plaunt, as well as vendor and friend, Blake Howell (Olde English Hardwoods) who offered a late-breaking and unexpected donation that helped push us over the $ 20K mark. Other donation leaders can be seen on the back of those sharp ride jerseys.

We’ve got a healthy collection of photos on our Facebook page. For the riders who haven’t emailed their photos in, feel free to add a link in the comments below. Search #S2V2014 for many more behind-the-scenes S2V moments captured by Team BUILD and friends.

From our humble 2010 inaugural ride consisting of nine determined riders, we’ve grown the last couple of years to over 20 strong. Kudos to all who participated this year, and remember: it’s never too early to start training for S2V 2015!

bridgeport 6 Modular Minimizes Impact of Healthcare Construction on PatientsFrom hospital expansions to standalone urgent care facilities, modular construction is quickly becoming the building method of choice for healthcare providers in need of new or additional space. According to Healthcare Design, 49 percent of the industry’s new construction is modular. The trend was confirmed in the McGraw-Hill Construction SmartMarket Report on prefabrication and modularization which named healthcare as the industry best suited to take full advantage of the benefits of modular construction.

Greater flexibility, repeatability and significantly reduced time to occupancy aren’t the only reasons modular construction is so appealing to healthcare facilities. Minimal disruption to patients and hospital operations is another compelling reason why so many are choosing modular.

While construction is underway in the factory, comparatively less foundation work is completed onsite. Once the building modules are complete, they are delivered to the site and installed in a fraction of the time of similar traditionally built structures. As a result, hospital operations commonly go unaffected, patients can get needed rest and buildings are completed in as little as half the time. This allows healthcare providers to offer new and better services to more patients, sooner.

In the event that construction does shut down a medical facility, temporary medical buildings can be brought in to allow doctors to continue to provide care. With this in mind, we’re certain modular will continue to be a popular option for new healthcare construction.

9-12-14 Scott and TeacherThis week, these pictures came to me from one of our leads, Scott Priestley. He’s working with a teacher to put finishing touches on a Heart of America READesign library makeover at West Manor Elementary in Atlanta. It’s the 10th one we’ve completed, and they just keep getting better.

ArtOur folks have been involved with this initiative for several years, working with Target on school libraries from New Orleans through Birmingham to Charlotte. A particularly fun one we did was with KIPP Believe College Prep, a charter school in New Orleans. The library makeover was featured on the Oprah Winfrey farewell show.

DeskThe idea is to partner with the teachers of each school to turn libraries into warm, friendly places that engage children to learn. (Good readers make good students, having a higher aptitude for learning.) The makeover involves new structures in some cases, new paint and lighting along with new furniture and carpet. The final addition is up to 2,000 new, high-quality library books. Our latest at West Manor included demolition, new lighting, news walls, painting and carpet along with shelves, furniture and wall murals.

The program alone may not transform communities, but it’s a start. Who knows? Maybe the early love of reading these children find in their new library is just the spark needed to be successful in the classroom and in the future. Our folks are proud to be a part.
