Located in Copenhagen, Denmark, the Green Lighthouse is the first CO2 neutral public building in the country.
Designed by Christensen & Co Architects, the project features a circular shape and adjustable louvers mirroring the course of the sun, which is the main source of energy.
The project is based on a new experiment with the energy which consists of a supply combination of district heating, photovoltaic solar heating and cooling and seasonal storage. The building’s design led to a 70% reduction of the energy consumption due to its round shape which features adjustable louvers that follow the sun’s course.
H&P Architects from Vietnam provide an effective solution to emergency housing with this simple self-assembly home that can be mass produced at a minimal cost in a span of 25 days. BB (Blooming Bamboo) home is one solution to housing for millions of people in calamity-hit locations.
The prototype has just been completed last month in Cau Dien Town, Tu Liem District, Ha Noi, Vietnam. From a bamboo module, each house is simply assembled with bolting, binding, hanging, placing. The structure is strong enough to withstand 1.5m-high floods.

The new design for a telecommunication tower in Istanbul by RTA office is conceptually based on the way the designers understand the site and geography. Therefore their proposal comes as a response to this very specific and strategically important point which bridges the gap between Europe and Asia, merging cultures and continents.
The shape to the tower is given by the sum of flexible threads that adapt to the body. As the shape varies so does the floor plan which allows different functions. Regarding the energy sources, the tower uses wind power, while it also resembles an element that had been shaped by the wind. The texture of the tower changes in perception as the visitor is approaching the object –from solid it transforms into a mesh.
Sustainable. Local. Natural. Green. Architects talk about these words all the time but what do they really mean?
'To present the concept of Urban Farming, I’ve collected images of existing urban farms that are already “digging into” (on/over/through) the built environment – doing amazing things for food, people, cities, communities, and sustainability – as well as conceptual urban farming architecture – projects which begin to rethink the word “farm,” especially in the urban environment, and offer a very bold response to the question, “What is Green Architecture?” Some of these ideas may seem pretty far-fetched, but I’ll bet not many people thought we’d be farming all over rooftops in NYC either! And they’re not only doing it, they’re doing it sustainably + successfully. Architecture could stand to learn a thing or 2 from these urban farms…'
