Solar-powered boat completes its trip around the world

Solar-powered boat completes its trip around the world | ARCHIresource | Scoop.it

First around the world with solar energy! On September 27th of 2010, the TURANOR PlanetSolar, the world’slargest solar-powered boat, set out from Monaco on a quest to become the first boat to circumnavigate the planet using the power of the Sun. After 18 months, on May 4, the boat successfully completed that quest, arriving back in Monaco.

Wetropolis | S+PBA - Arch2O.com | ARCHIresource | Scoop.it

According to the head of Thailand’s National Disaster Warning Center, Meteorologist Smith Dharmasaroja, by 2030 much of Bangkok will lie under 1.5 meters (5 feet) of seawater. With the city sinking 10 cm below sea level, the latter rising by 40 cm annually, the safest place to create architecture is above water. Thus, a Bangkok-based architecture firm S+PBA recently unveiled drawings for a self-sustaining community that can thrive with the ebb and flow of rising tides. Dubbed “A Post Diluvian Future”, the “wetropolis” allows Bangkok to live with natural flooding instead of resisting it while creating a homeostasis that detoxifies the region’s polluted waters.

Saint Petersburg Zoological Park | TN Plus & Beckmann N’Thépé | ARCHIresource | Scoop.it

Thousands and thousands of years ago the surface of the earth was but one supercontinent known as Pangea. Ecosystems once linked with others are today kept apart by oceans and seas after being broken into splinters. From this separation we have developed different cultures and unique environments that have defined the way we live. Yet in our search for knowledge and entertainment one of the few things that unite these worlds can be found within zoos were we can interact and observe animals that are not indigenous to where we live.

3D-DREAMING "Architecture from a digital point of view": Subaquatic Archeological Park

3D-DREAMING "Architecture from a digital point of view": Subaquatic Archeological Park | ARCHIresource | Scoop.it
This project designed by Juan Jose Sanchez Martinez from the European University of Madrid is a proposition for a subaquatic archeological park of Yenikapi, Istanbul. The grounds of a forgotten harbor for more than 16 centuries restructured into a subaquatic museum transited through a hammam. We face the preservation by the evolution of a new cultural tourism where history and body create an emphatic bond. The project folds with the exterior, it flows towards the landscape, not imitating its forms but its evolutionary process.The historical curved line-up of Instanbulian’s domes compaction is sophisticated into a net of funicular catenary curves, assuming the cultural landscape like a genome-formula that solves the structure.The fold in the inside contains the atmosphere, it is the management of a thermodynamic dérive. The essential is to receive our bodies as in an ecological relation to the space, namely to dip into the mechanism of the corporal thermo-regulation in order to lower the global enthalpy of the project. It’s about generating a multiple system of passive strategies and interlink them to the net of thermal sensations of the body. For instance, the difference of temperature of a dry bulb in the interior of the building would be about 10°C-11°C between summer and winter, but by modifying all the thermodynamic variables of the space (such as relative humidity, speed of air, conduction of the soil, rate of renovation of the air, etc.) we would be able to level out a thermal sensation of 24°C-25°C in the course of one year. This thermodynamic adaptability implies energy savings up to 35%, not because of its mechanism but simply because of its concept.

AA Landscape Urbanism "Social Waterscapes" 2011-12

"The Social Waterscapes Project investigates the role of water infrastructures within the city as a medium to improve social life. In the context of Chinese rapid urbanisation, we explore the potential of water as an instrument of modernisation. [...] The Masterplan aims to integrate the existing  urban pattern of the villages, recognizing and establishing them as cores of the cultural identity of the new city. [...] The relationship between water and people becomes the crucial driver for all the decisions in designing the city."

 

Social waterscapes is the design thesis of Jaime Traspaderne, Ana Abram and Costanza Madricardo at the Architectural Association within the Landscape Urbanism Programme 2011/2012.

Flowing Marine Research Center in Bali

Flowing Marine Research Center in Bali | ARCHIresource | Scoop.it

An international design competition for a marine research center in Bali, Indonesia gave firm solus4 an opportunity to study and architecturally interpret the structure of tsunami waves.

Designed for a site 150 meters off the shore of Kuta beach, their Marine Research Center is a fluid structure that minimizes its impact upon its natural aquatic environment. The 2500 square-meter facility is designed to be extremely energy efficient while providing visitors and scientists with a direct connection to the the ocean

New St. Petersburg Pier | Mesh Architecture & BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group) - Arch2O.com

New St. Petersburg Pier | Mesh Architecture & BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group) - Arch2O.com | ARCHIresource | Scoop.it

It is amazing how something so everyday and recognizable as a loop-dee-loop can amaze and inspire us. Just a subtle change makes all the difference, no longer is it the straw wrapping that we play with rather than discard, not is is become something. Now it’s heavy duty, and it’s more real to us- understandable, straw wrappings get thrown out, we usually only throw out buildings that were built in the ’70s.


The firm Mesh Architecture collaborated with BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group) for this competition entry, titled Wave Pier, to design the new St. Petersburg Pier in St. Petersburg, Florida. Below is the description given of the project by Mesh Architecture. Enjoy!

Seen as an extension of the urban ground rather than a pier, the terminal becomes an uninterrupted and multi-directional urban space. Not to mention the fact that this layout is perfect for coping with the seismic problems Japan often faces.
