Have you ever found yourself staring at town 'skyglow' or light pollution? This is typically experienced when viewing a town from a remote location.
Jakub Galczynski, member of LoveSchack Architecture, has been collaborating with sculptur Natalie Clark on a Dark Sky Pavilion that will raise public awareness to light pollution issues. Jakub has been concerned about local development and public understanding of light pollution's affect on the ecosystem, wildlife, human health, stargazing and being an energy waste.
' Lighting that emits too much light or shines when and where it’s not needed is wasteful. Wasting energy has huge economic and environmental consequences.
Plants and animals depend on Earth’s daily cycle of light and dark rhythm to govern life-sustaining behaviors such as reproduction, nourishment, sleep and protection from predators. ' - International Dark Sky Association
His collaboration with Natalie Clark allows the design to be artistically engaging. After numerous conversation about natural geometry and stargazing needs, together they designed a sculptural shelter usable as a marker and offering protection from harsh winter winds. Natalie and Jakub spent many months conceptualizing the pavilion to strike public's curiosity.
Reaching 20ft in height, the Dark Sky Pavilion includes a 10ft diameter interior dome for astronomy projections. The overall form takes the shape of an organic ovid slightly askew with two openings; an entry and one sky window. An inflatable assembly will allow access to remote dark sky locations and avoid development in wild places.
The Dark Sky Pavilion will be unveiled just days before the Solar Eclipse, August 21st 2017. Afterwards, the pavilion will join Wyoming Stargazing's free public events held at Rendezvous Park and Center of Arts. One of Jakub's interests was to extend winter stargazing attendance, by creating a warming shelter. The Dark Sky Pavilion has been designed to close its sky window and provide heated space within .
' I've spoke to numerous stargazing attendees, in the past, and they simply can't handle the cold. Many of my friends do not even consider the idea of stargazing, during Wyoming winters. ' - Jakub

This is one of LSA's favorite magazines and if you are interested in building with natural materials, there is great information in here about the latest and greatest. We are republishing with the intention of promoting the Last Straw (http://thelaststraw.org/) , and take absolutely zero credit for any of the content. Also, the article is about/by Wayne Bingham, a local Architect in both SLC and Teton Valley who has designed/built with straw bales for many years (http://www.wjbingham.com/). He became one of Lindsey Love's mentors through a roundabout turn of events.
We had a lot of fun talking with Devon Tilly and Kevin Keefe of Mountain View Window and Door in Denver Colorado on their podcast, The Art of Construction. We touched on the process we went through to start our firm, our partnership with Charette Venture Group, and most especially our commitment to building sustainable, high performance, natural buildings.

“I invite friends.” -Katrin Klingenburg on how she heats her Passive House
What can a gathering of friends and curious minds inspire? Add to that several cups of coffee (and that’s just me alone) and a supportive creative community. Love Schack Architecture will soon find out.
One Million Cups Bozeman is hosting their monthly gathering that is focused on “creating conversation around Bozeman startups, business development, and economic growth in the most entrepreneurial state in the nation (plus, coffee & snacks).” The event will be held at Red Tractor Pizza at 7:30AM and is free and open to all.
That’s right, folks, you can start your day with a shot of motivation and fresh thinking served up by two designers with the same first name. We are preparing to speak about our remote design firm that focuses on high performance buildings and natural materials. We hope to raise awareness about the latest building science for our mountain climate and how design can impact value.
Love Schack Architecture was selected by a local panel to present a concept for a Nature Pavilion along the Elk Refuge. Hosted by Jackson Hole Public Art the project received entries from a list of national artists and architects. Th intent of the pavilion was to develop a functional and sculptural installation marking the location of a gateway between the town of Jackson and two major National Parks.
The Love Schack Architecture team presented the concept of collaborating with local environmental initiatives and nature clubs, to develop an observation pavilion that could be used all-year around. We did extensive research on birding, bird hides, and nature public pavilions in an effort to better understand how a pavilion would be utilized by a variety of user groups.
