Ecorium of the National Ecological Institute, South Korea

Ecorium of the National Ecological Institute, South Korea | Art, Architecture and Design | Scoop.it

The Ecorium of the National Ecological Institute in Seocheon-gun, South Korea promotes a design concept by SAMOO Architects and Engineers that reflects three key concepts:

"From the Nature," "Be the Nature," & "With the Nature." 

 

The first is expressed by the dynamic, organic lines of the Institute and its grounds.  The second uses cutting-edge technology to recreate ecological environments by aligning greenhouses with the optimal amount of sunlight for each one.  The third includes visitors who immerse themselves in the complex ecological experience.  The Ecorium is poised to become a landmark in green research, education, and exhibitions.

Wow!

Mae Hughes/Lauryn Macias's curator insight, October 27, 2014 7:04 PM

We chose this article to be in the Intellectual/Arts category because it is about improvement of education. This article is about the National Ecological Institute in Seocheon-gun, South Korea which is an institute of ecology that focuses on 3 main concepts: "With the Nature," "From the Nature," and "Be the Nature" Its main goal is to become a "landmark in green research, education, and exhibitions." It looks like this landmark will help South Korea improve its knowledge in Ecological studies.

Cemetery complex by Andrea Dragoni contains plazas and artworks

Cemetery complex by Andrea Dragoni contains plazas and artworks | Art, Architecture and Design | Scoop.it

Architect Andrea Dragoni has extended a cemetery in an Italian town by adding monumental stone walls with public plazas and artworks slotted in between.

Four equally sized courtyards are positioned at intervals between the walls. Italian artists Sauro Cardinali and Nicola Renzi created large site-specific artworks to occupy each one, plus large square skylights were added to frame views up to the sky.

These spaces were inspired by James Turrell's Skyspaces and are designed to be enjoyable public areas, independently from the cemetery, offering an opportunity to pause and reflect. These are cubic "squares of silence" having open ceilings that evoke windows open to the sky...

Reinventing Pedestrian Street Walkways: Artistic Crosswalks in Baltimore

Reinventing Pedestrian Street Walkways: Artistic Crosswalks in Baltimore | Art, Architecture and Design | Scoop.it

These artistic crosswalks in Baltimore are two projects implemented as part of a city program aiming at encouraging the increase of artworks in public spaces. Various intersections around the city will soon be looking different, but so far only two have been completed. The first was envisioned by artist Paul Bertholet and depicts a giant zipper, opening towards one end of the crosswalk.

The second installation is an image of a giant hopscotch, developed by artist Graham Coreil-Allen.

Both are unconventional and playful, adding a creative element to urban life in Baltimore...

Integrating Art into a city is what makes places like Chicago great.

'Moving Typography' in Amsterdam: Exploring New Ways of Representing and Interacting with Data

'Moving Typography' in Amsterdam:  Exploring New Ways of Representing and Interacting with Data | Art, Architecture and Design | Scoop.it

Type/Dynamics at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam lets you experience data in fantastic news ways.

Type/Dynamics at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam was created by Dutch design studio LUST, and the installation (as a sentient piece of art) searches for real-time locations in the news, including "Ground Zero", "Reichstag”, or "Tiananmen Square”, from there locating images from Google Street View and turning them into grids filled with new information. Instead of a typical photo representation, the location is presented in purely typographically form. Visitors are then 'transported’ to that location by wrapping themselves in all the news of the area.
"A visitor does not need to grasp all possible readings of a work at once," continues LUST. "Instead multiple story lines unfold over multiple readings. All aspects from content to movement, interaction, data collection and collaboration contribute to this new literature."

Tea Houses by Swatt Miers Architects

Tea Houses by Swatt Miers Architects | Art, Architecture and Design | Scoop.it

The Tea Houses are places where one could retreat into nature- there are three, each with its own purpose: meditation, sleeping and ‘visioning’ or creative thinking.


Each tea house is designed as a transparent steel and glass pavilion, hovering like a lantern over the natural landscape. Cast-in-place concrete core elements anchor the pavilions, supporting steel channel rim joists which cantilever beyond the cores to support the floor and roof planes. With its minimal footprint, the design treads lightly on the land, minimizing grading and preserving the delicate root systems of the native oaks.

Beautiful! I'm a big fan

My humble glass and wood greenhouse is my go to Tea House. Everyone needs a personal place to quietly be. And tea is always recommended.

The natural sculptures of Olga Ziemska

The natural sculptures of Olga Ziemska | Art, Architecture and Design | Scoop.it

The work of artist Olga Ziemska has a special relationship with the natural world.  Natural materials such as wood, sand, and stone comprise much of her work.  However, it is in synthesizing aspects of humanity with the natural world that Ziemska’s work is especially effective.

Maximizing Views with Minimal Environmental Impact: House Ufogel in Austria

Maximizing Views with Minimal Environmental Impact: House Ufogel in Austria | Art, Architecture and Design | Scoop.it

This Austrian house Ufogel is a functional home set on a hillside overlooking some of the best mountain views in the area, blending the comforts of a traditional house with the futurism of contemporary design. It is set on stilts to maximize spectacular views while minimizing the environmental impact of its construction. Windows, both small and large, provide light to every part of the building without sacrificing personal privacy, a consideration that’s often missed in the design of compact houses. The interior of the house is fairly minimal in style, dominated by a single wood finish and accented by clever little details in each room.
