A Parisian Restaurant Design with a Pixelated Green Facade

A Parisian Restaurant Design with a Pixelated Green Facade | Commercial Real Estate | Scoop.it

Architect Stephane Malka’s striking facade proposal for a Parisian restaurant creates an unusual site, sure to stand out in the urban setting of the city. Amidst a city of man-made concrete and glass structures could rise a building essentially comprised of an organically growing “forest.

Malka, who has experience in urban landscaping, created a green facade that wraps around a glass enclosure and is composed of raw wooden blocks arranged in a patchy, pixelating pattern. The uneven surface creates spaces for plant life to grow, spilling flourishing green plants and foliage down the building.

The textured wooden facade, which seems to actively move inward to completely engulf the glass skin, stops to reveal an expansive view of the restaurant’s interior.

Malka’s work presents passersby and restaurant customer with with the interesting paradox of nature abundantly flourishing in an urban environment...

Finland's Wuxi Theater: An Iconic Design that Harvests Rainwater

Finland's Wuxi Theater: An Iconic Design that Harvests Rainwater | Commercial Real Estate | Scoop.it

Like the iconic waterfront Sydney Opera House, the Wuxi Grand Theatre, built by Finland’s PES-Architects, benefits from its location.

 

Located on a manmade peninsula, the theater is highly visible from all directions- a prime spot that provided the opportunity to construct an eye-catching roof that places the building in a direct dialogue with the city’s weather. Eight massive steel wings stretch out from the roof 50 meters high, adding a distinct sculptural element while reflecting direct sunlight, sheltering interior spaces from excessive heat. The slanted roof also works to harvest rainwater, taking advantage of the local climate and reducing the building’s impact on the environment.

Thousands of LED lights illuminate the aluminum wings; inside, the Main Auditorium is covered by over 15,000 bamboo blocks, capturing the local character while infusing a distinctly Finnish element in its forms and materials.

 

One year after its opening, the theater has seamlessly integrated its green terraces and lakeside landscape into the urban context and local culture...

ParadigmGallery's curator insight, April 29, 2013 10:35 AM

A breathtaking setting and an award winning design.

 

"Evoking the character of a butterfly, eight massive steel wings stretch out from the roof 50 meters from the ground. While the wings add a distinct sculptural element to the crown of the theater, they reflect direct sunlight, sheltering interior spaces from excessive heat. The slanting of the roof wings also work to harvest rainwater, taking advantage of the local climate and reducing the building’s impact on the environment"


bravo....beautiful...PES Architects

Natalie Curtis's curator insight, May 1, 2013 11:03 AM

I love the idea of Finnish architecture meeting in this locale to design this magnificent theater. Not only does the purpose of the architecture and the sustainability and environmental friendly aspects of this building speak for itself but the design of the life-like butterfly wings blends in gorgeously to it's surrounding landscape. The design and overall appearance can be appreciated at home and abroad and is a sight to behold, I'm sure. The inside is as equally as impressive as the outside- which has an interesting job of harvesting rainwater and regulating the amount of heat that may need to be reflected off of the building... which cuts down on energy usage. 

Impressive, PES Architects.
