Most of us rarely think about it, but when we turn on our smartphones and PCs, we’re giving ourselves over to machines that reduce every single task to a series of 1s and 0s. That’s what digital means.

A Twisting LEED Platinum Telus Sky Tower for Calgary by BIG

A Twisting LEED Platinum Telus Sky Tower for Calgary by BIG | Contemporary Art, Design and Technology | Scoop.it
BIG releases plans for the Telus Sky Tower, a new eco residential and office project in the heart of downtown Calgary.

 

BIG is making headway in Canada with a brand new LEED Platinum residential and office tower for downtown Calgary. Located in the heart of the city right next to a light rail station and the Foster + Partners-designed Bow Skyscraper, the Telus Sky Tower provides office space on the lower floors, then tapers and twists to accommodate private residences and a sky garden up top. The new eco tower will help create a more vibrant and walkable city center.

Forget aluminum. In the not-too-distant future you could be carrying around an iPhone made of Liquidmetal. A recently discovered patent suggests that Apple could be experimenting with ways to manufacture a smartphone made entirely of this material, which is twice the strength of titanium!

Nanying University Learning Hub by Thomas Heatherwick

Nanying University Learning Hub by Thomas Heatherwick | Contemporary Art, Design and Technology | Scoop.it

Thomas Heatherwick's Learning Hub for Nanyang Technological University democratizes the learning experience with cylindrical towers.

 

The design resists the idea that university buildings need be compositions of artificially lit, endless corridors with a distinct cylindrical shapes that maximize daylight and encourages the incidental meeting of fellow entrepreneurs, scientists or colleagues. 55 tutorial rooms are devoid of traditional hallways and organized around a central space that links the towers together.


Students can enter the corner-free spaces from 360 degrees and engage with colleagues and professors on rooftop gardens. The upper floors and green rooftops enjoy views of picturesque synthetic and natural landscapes. Award-winning green measures include the use of hydrophilic polymers, a material process that eliminates the need for irrigation, vertical greenery and recycled concrete aggregate as a material. The design will be completed in 2014.

Wow... Now that is some futuristic design right there. It would be great to get a look at this when it is done.

Contemporary Green Design: Merricks House by Robson Rak Architects

Contemporary Green Design: Merricks House by Robson Rak Architects | Contemporary Art, Design and Technology | Scoop.it

Robson Rak Architects have designed a house on a 10-acre farm located in Merricks North near Melbourne, Australia. The property was bought as a weekender with the intention of building a new house with enough room for their family to grow and enjoy through the generations.


From the architects: 

In accordance to the client’s desire for simplicity and material honesty, the house has been reduced to a modest palette of earth, glass and timber. The majority of the internal walls are rammed earth, creating a beautiful, warm, textural look and feel.

The walls are 400mm thick with an internal strip of 100mm thick foam insulation, assisting the natural qualities of the rammed earth in maintaining a consistent internal temperature. The R-value of the walls up to a very high level, and the double-glazing of all windows and doors assists the building in being extremely environmentally efficient as attested by our clients. The high thermal mass of these walls has made the house thermally efficient. Openable windows on the east, west, north and south allows cross ventilation.
