Anna Liu and Mike Tonki Shell Lace Structure

Anna Liu and Mike Tonki  Shell Lace Structure | Architectural & Design Solutions | Scoop.it
Jessica Thyssen's insight:

Through 10 projects of different scales and typologies architects Tonkin Liu, with engineers from Arup, have pioneered Shell Lace Structure, a technique that generates ultra-light, single-surface structures. Structural principles learned from Seashells: curvature, corrugation, and distortion, all lock in strength and stiffness, allowing for incredibly thin structures. Advanced digital design, analysis, and fabrication tools, together with tailoring techniques, are used in the Shell Lace Structure’s iterative design process, to construct complex three-dimensional form using the minimum amount of thin flat sheet materials.

This Shape-Shifting, Zero-Energy House Transforms In Tune With The Weather

This Shape-Shifting, Zero-Energy House Transforms In Tune With The Weather | Architectural & Design Solutions | Scoop.it

On a hot day, instead of cranking up the air conditioning, this house transforms: A screen and shell move out to wrap around the entire home, shading everything so it cools down.

"It provides this flexible control over heat gain from sunlight," says architect Todd Fix, who compares the screen and shell to extra layers of clothes you can put on or take off. "So if it's a cold day, the sensor will sense that, and it will close both to keep the heat inside. If you want more light in the space, you can open up the screen or open up the shell."

It's a way to create a passive, zero-energy home without the typical passive house design. "The living area is all glass, from the walls and ceiling to the floors," Fix says. "This opens up a house. Instead of having really thick, insulated walls that are opaque, so you can't see out or see in, it kind of opens you up to the environment."

Boston's EpiCenter: Plans for the Largest Energy Positive Commercial Building on the East Coast

Boston's EpiCenter: Plans for the Largest Energy Positive Commercial Building on the East Coast | Architectural & Design Solutions | Scoop.it

Behnisch Architekten has big, green aspirations for its latest project, the EpiCenter, fittingly located in Boston’s Innovation District, the burgeoning neighborhood designed for such far-reaching goals. The firm just unveiled plans for a new expanded headquarters for the non-profit, Artists for Humanity (AFH), an organization dedicated to helping underserved youth through paid employment opportunities in the arts.

According to Behnisch, the addition will make the existing LEED Platinum certified building—the city’s first—designed by local firm Arrrowstreet, even greener, with the hope of becoming the largest energy positive commercial building on the East Coast. The building already was an AIA COTE Top Ten winner.

360-Degree Photos Transform Abandoned Buildings into Beautiful and Dizzying Kaleidoscopic Images

360-Degree Photos Transform Abandoned Buildings into Beautiful and Dizzying Kaleidoscopic Images | Architectural & Design Solutions | Scoop.it
German photographer Sven Fennema has created his own kind of kaleidoscopes. Usually, Fennema chooses to photograph abandoned places in Europe like churches and cemeteries, places with architecture that bends and curves. In most of the photos, Fennema then angles the camera upward to capture the view looking up at the ceiling or sky. Next, Fennema takes numerous photographs, circling 360 degrees around his subject. Finally, he uses an aggregator to assemble the images together, creating the kaleidoscopic photos you see.

Moshe Safdie Creates Spectacular Bio Dome for Singapore Airport

Moshe Safdie Creates Spectacular Bio Dome for Singapore Airport | Architectural & Design Solutions | Scoop.it

Moshe Safdie is famous for his iconic Montreal housing complex Habitat ’67, and he is still creating innovative large-scale urban projects around the world. The latest project his firm, Safdie Architects, has debuted is the design for development at Singapore's Changi Airport. The scheme aims to create a public gathering space with gardens, retail stores, hotel, restaurants, and entertainment that will lure travelers, airport employees, and local residents.

The glass dome will encompass a space of 134,000 square meters and houses a 130-foot-high waterfall. The dome's curved shape, recalling the tradition of glass conservatories, provides inherent structural strength to the glass and steel structure. Tree-like structural columns in a ring support the dome while a suspended roof covers the adjacent atrium space.

The space also showcases natural elements: walking trails travel through an indoor topography of trees, palms, and ferns called "Forest Valley". The different elements — dining, accommodations, and retail — are spread throughout the structure so as to give each of them impressive views of the natural features.

Massive Green-Roofed StreetDome Skate Park Pops Up in Denmark | Architectural & Design Solutions | Scoop.it

Danish architecture firm CEBRA teamed up with Glifberg+Lykke to design a multi-use park that boasts a 4,500-square-meter area for skating, parkour, boulder climbing, canoe polo and other recreational activities.

The project is part of an initiative to create a new urban space for recreation. The 1,500-square-meter dome is based on CEBRA’s igloo hall concept. Spanning over 40 meters, the design uses similar technology of previous projects, including low-cost and lightweight sports halls. It uses cheaper, off-the-shelf components often used in industrial buildings and warehouses.

Elegant Eco-friendly Ranch in California Reshaping Rural Family Life

Elegant Eco-friendly Ranch in California Reshaping Rural Family Life | Architectural & Design Solutions | Scoop.it

Updated to become an eco-friendly ranch, this original 160-acre homestead in California’s Chileno Valley was designed by Turnbull Griffin Haesloop Architects for a young family with three children who love nature, tranquility and dreamy panoramic landscapes. Just three miles west of downtown Petaluma, California, this new barn house spreading over 2.498 square feet – the Hupomone Ranch – compliments the rural landscape and extends views towards the coastal range in the distance. Focusing on sustainable farming, the family needed a home that would not only mirror their choice, but also help maintain and improve the surroundings.
