5 Stunning Examples of Sustainable Wooden Architecture | Architecture and Interior Design | Scoop.it

Wood is one of architecture’s more magnanimous materials which allows architects to develop structures which are complex and yet retain the features of minimal designs.


It is a versatile enough material that it can be used to demonstrate traditional craftsmanship while presenting a modern, corporate image and a whole host of sustainable benefits, which are covered in the article link.

Bioclimatic Design: ARPT Headquarters by Mario Cucinella Architects

Bioclimatic Design: ARPT Headquarters by Mario Cucinella Architects | Architecture and Interior Design | Scoop.it

Mario Cucinella Architects have designed the ARPT headquarters in Algeria with a fin-like form referencing sand dunes and Mediterranean architecture.

 

The project is inspired by the Algerian desert landscape, where the dunes are manufactured by wind and sand. An institutional building as the new ARPT headquarters serves as the reference point within a neighborhood and a city where tradition and modernity merge each other to create new symbolic and cultural scenarios.

The desire to create a building that would work according to the principles of bioclimatic architecture and, in particular, by the natural cooling techniques of the past, suggested an aerodynamic shape, convex on the North side to divert the hot winds, and concave on the South side to capture the cool breezes during the night, and thus to promote the natural ventilation of the building.

Form, energy and tradition are transformed then into a new building that will become a symbol of the development of Algeria.
