Moshe Safdie Creates Spectacular Bio Dome for Singapore Airport

Moshe Safdie Creates Spectacular Bio Dome for Singapore Airport | Architecture-Engineering-Urban Planning | 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.

Ribbon Chapel / NAP Architects

Ribbon Chapel / NAP Architects | Architecture-Engineering-Urban Planning | Scoop.it

This wedding chapel stands in a garden of a resort hotel, “Bella Vista Sakaigahama,” in Onomichi, Hiroshima. The site is midway on a hill enjoying a panoramic view of the Inland Sea of Japan. By entwining two spiral stairways, we realized a free-standing building of unprecedented composition and architecturally embodied the act of marriage in a pure form. A single spiral stairway would be unsteady in a horizontal direction and is prone to vibration in a vertical direction, hence, very unstable.

The building’s exterior is finished in upright wood panels, painted white so as to deepen in beauty as time passes, and titanium zinc alloy, a material resistant to damage from the sea breeze and pliable enough to be applied to curvature. Employing the zinc alloy on the coping, walls, ceiling, and window sashes enabled a simple design unified by means of a single material.

School for Biodiversity: Landscape as Living Space

School for Biodiversity: Landscape as Living Space | Architecture-Engineering-Urban Planning | Scoop.it

The project developed by Chartier Dalix involves two structures: a school with eighteen classrooms and a gymnasium which will be open to local residents. The two structures are united in a single volume, bounded by a same skin: the mineral wall, that represents a clear and definite gesture for the ZAC. This building is the “green heart” of the island. The school thus serves as a unifying element in a landscape where which flora and fauna play a vital part in guiding re-development for the rest of the area.

This project is a “landscape as living space“ rather than a simple building. There are two distinct parts to the building: a mineral section – the facades – and a section made of plants – the roof. This envelope wraps itself around the school, a general volume with smooth contours and supple lines, revealing fluid interior spaces and elastic exterior ones, avoiding ruptures between volumes. The highly compact building opens onto the neighbourhood, offering a multitude of perspectives.

Good design should consider the context within which the building is set. Great to see green space being added to a dense urban environment bringing benefits to the children at the school, wildlife and providing a little urban cooling and SUDs.

A New University Building Design Promotes Sustainable Development In Vietnam

A New University Building Design Promotes Sustainable Development In Vietnam | Architecture-Engineering-Urban Planning | Scoop.it
Vietnam-based architect firm Vo Trong Nghia Architects designed an environmentally-friendly structure for FPT University that is located about 34 km away from Hanoi.The façade of the seven-story building is designed to look like a checkerboard, with huge floor trees placed in the openings. The openings also let in lots of natural sunlight, saving on energy.Measuring at 11,065-square-meters, the structure will also feature a green roof to protect the whole building from too much sunlight.According to the architects, “the structure is intended to promote sustainable development in Vietnam,” and “instill sustainable practices in the future generations”.

Construction starts on Smith and Gill's ice-inspired China skyscraper

Construction starts on Smith and Gill's ice-inspired China skyscraper | Architecture-Engineering-Urban Planning | Scoop.it

Construction has started in Chengdu, China, on a 468-metre-high crystalline skyscraper by the architects behind the current and future tallest buildings in the world.

The Greenland Tower Chengdu was designed by Adrian Smith and Gordon Gill – the former SOM architects responsible for both the Burj Khalifa and the forthcoming Kingdom Tower – and is set to become the tallest building in south-western China. According to the architects, the faceted-glass form of the office and hotel tower was "inspired by the unique ice mountain topography around Chengdu".

"Like the mountain ridges reflecting the light of the sky and the valleys reflecting light from the earth, the iconic tower will perform as a light sculpture to diffuse light from 360 degrees, creating a connection between sky and earth," said the studio in a statement.

Philippe Blot Lefevre's curator insight, November 22, 2014 11:07 AM

Le seul moyen de s'approcher de la perfection de la Nature, est de l'imiter. Les formes et polyèdres platoniciens sont incontournables. L'effet n'est pas que visuel puisque notre corps est lui-même constitué de cellules apparentées à ces formes. Ainsi s'opère l'harmonie entre l'objet qui nous habite et ceux que nous côtoyons.

Off the Grid: Snøhetta's Norwegian Eco-home

Off the Grid: Snøhetta's Norwegian Eco-home | Architecture-Engineering-Urban Planning | Scoop.it
A Norwegian eco home incorporates a heated pool and a sauna, but still produces three times more electricity than it uses.

Researchers designed the house with a solar-powered roof in collaboration with architects firm Snøhetta. Heat exchangers use excess energy to heat the outside swimming pool and the house even has its own sauna.
Insulation is so good that each floor has just one radiator, and each room has sensors to ensure that light and heat is directed efficiently. It produces 23,200kWh of energy a year but requires just 7,272kW to run.
It may look like a Portacabin that has been involved in a nasty accident, but this slanting roofed building is actually the ultimate ecohome...

Projet probablement coûteux, tout comme les chalets avec piscine chauffée en plein air dans les Alpes finalement, conçus sans approche de performance énergétique.

Dans la recherche de durabilité, il s'agit moins de renoncer au confort et aux plaisirs de la vie que de réévaluer ceux-ci  et aborder ses projets avec une posture ouverte,  un zeste d'ambition et une envie de mobiliser de nouveaux savoir-faire.

Concrete + Context: Winery Pavilion at Leura Park by Centrum Architects

Concrete + Context: Winery Pavilion at Leura Park by Centrum Architects | Architecture-Engineering-Urban Planning | Scoop.it

This winery pavilion near the southern tip of Australia was conceived by Melbourne's Centrum Architects as a massive lantern to draw curious visitors.

A unique form was a priority from the beginning. For inspiration, the architects turned to the estate’s name – “leura” is derived from the Aboriginal word for lava – and from the unusual wrinkled rock formations found in pahoehoe lava flows. In their interpretation, the design team imagined the roof and western wall as a shell composed from four sections of curving high-performance concrete that rise from the ground before folding over, propped up with angled steel columns. Although initially conceived for off-site prefabrication, it ultimately proved faster and more economical to cast the sections in situ.

Inside, the thickness of the exposed concrete walls provides excellent thermal massing, which allowed Centrum to rely on passive cooling and ventilation, forgoing the need for mechanical and water systems.

A New Culture Hub in the Netherlands Exemplifies Dutch Architecture

A New Culture Hub in the Netherlands Exemplifies Dutch Architecture | Architecture-Engineering-Urban Planning | Scoop.it

Crowned with three cantilevered structures, this hub unites the city library, regional archives, and arts spaces in a stellar example of Dutch architecture.

The Eemhuis, designed by Neutelings Riedijk Architects of Rotterdam, never quite sits still. There is a movement of people, a play of lines and an interweaving of functions. This lively energy, combined with a strong urban presence, befits the building’s role as the new cultural heart of Amersfoort.

The layered exterior reveals the 16,000-square-metre centre’s stacked program, organized organically by purpose. The library resides on the open lower floors, while the arts school is perched on top, with each department – theatre and dance, visual arts and music – housed in one of the cantilevered metal structures. Anchoring the new community hub are the archives at the building’s core.

Stunning "Earth House" Appears to Be Built into the Ground

Stunning "Earth House" Appears to Be Built into the Ground | Architecture-Engineering-Urban Planning | Scoop.it

The Earth House Project is a visualized single family home that appears as if it’s built into the ground. Proposed by the Kosovan firm Molos Group, images show a modern space that’s surrounded by lush, green space that intermingles with the building. 

Molos Group explains, “The position of the house is in the midst of nature, far away the busy streets of Tirana. The house was projected that way, to be by all means in touch with nature.”

Depending on the vantage point, the ground reveals and obscures the structure from different angles. The large glazed surfaces deliver ample sunlight to the living areas, and it brings even more natural beauty into the home...
