Sustainable School in Paris which Facade Changes its Color | Design | News, E-learning, Architecture of the future at news.arcilook.com | Architecture e-learning | Scoop.it

Eva Samuel Architects and Associates designed this school in Paris, France and it is called École Maternelle. The building’s envelope is a response to several environmental aims: visual protection, increased natural light to counteract the surrounding solar screens, no thermal bridges, natural ventilation and double flux in winter. This school is the first to comply with the City of Paris’s climate plan. The result is a thick façade with varied reliefs – bay, alcove, and concave windows – which are used horizontally on the roof as skylights and to house air treatment machinery and ventilation chimneys. These multi-form strawberry-coloured elements enliven and dematerialise the façades. Their anodized aluminium cladding changes from pink to golden grey to green depending on one’s movements, point de view, the colour of the sky and reflections of nearby buildings.

Brave Reconstruction of an Ancient Ash Tree Harvested from the Forests Near Stavanger | Green Architecture | News, E-learning, Architecture of the future at news.arcilook.com | Architecture e-learning | Scoop.it

This video shows an interview with Reinhard Kropf, an architect from Helen & Hard architectural practice. He is a graduate of the Technical University in Graz where he studied under Günter Domenig. He also studied under Sverre Fehn at the Oslo School of Architecture, which is where he met Siv Helene Stangeland. Stangeland and Kropf set up their practice, Helen & Hard, in Stavanger in 1995. This practice occupies a special position in Norwegian architecture, both in terms of their projects and of their location in the western oil-town of Stavanger. They are still a young practice, yet they have many built works to their name, including surprising conversions of old structures and innovative housing projects. Lately, they have won several competitions for public buildings. Reuse of existing elements from local industry and use of local human resources are common to many projects, as are inventive analysis and working methods. What emerges is quite different from the regional modernism that has dominated the Norwegian architectural scene for almost a century. During the interview, Helen and Hard founder speaks about the practice’s philosophy and working methods. This film includes the architects combing the Norwegian woods for a suitable ash tree for the project as Helen and Hard reconstruct an ancient ash tree harvested from the forests near Stavanger. Their concept is to recreate the childhood pleasure we all take from playing in dens in the forest.

Imposing Sycamore Tree Captured Inside The Master Bedroom | Design | News, E-learning, Architecture of the future at news.arcilook.com | Architecture e-learning | Scoop.it

Creating a modern frame for an old 1950’s post & beam house that also includes a tree running through the interior spaces was a challenge for the design team working on this project – California-based Aaron Neubert Architects. Their work on re-designing this single family residence brought forth some contemporary design details. Along with a 800 square foot bedroom addition, the interior and exterior appearance of this timber-framed house was upgraded to suit a modern lifestyle, but also needed to keep the original “peninsular shape of the property” and respect the slope of the land. Known as the Sycamore House, this residential property in Los Angeles, California, has seen its rebirth revolving around a beloved sycamore tree that became part of the bedroom’s charm. The architects describe the incorporation of the imposing tree in the project: “By perpendicularly positioning the addition between the existing house and the street setback, the relationship between the interior of the house and the landscape are reinforced. The cantilever of the addition extends over the hillside, projecting the interior into the tree canopy. Conversely, the sycamore tree is incorporated into the house, literally penetrating the space of the bedroom.” What do you think about this project?
