Data Wall: IBM Think Exhibit

Located on Jaffe Drive at Lincoln Center in New York, the THINK exhibit combined three unique experiences to engage visitors in a conversation about how we can improve the way we live and work. 

The IBM data wall was the introduction to the Think Exhibit at the Lincoln Center. This exhibit celebrated its centennial year, and 100 years of human progress.

The wall aimed to educate the public about five areas of interest to the New York community. These included air quality, water waste, potential solar energy, fraud detection, and traffic sensing.

Green Space + Pedestrian-Oriented Development: Futian District masterplan in Shenzhen by SWA Group

Green Space + Pedestrian-Oriented Development: Futian District masterplan in Shenzhen by SWA Group | Interactive Architecture | Scoop.it
SWA Group has been selected to redesign Futian District in Shenzhen, China.

The landscape architecture and urban planning firm hopes to transform the congested and car-dominated district of central Shenzhen into a calmer, greener space where pedestrians are welcome.

As part of SWA’s masterplan, titled Garden City of Tomorrow, residential streets will be made over with exercise areas for all age groups as well as quieter green spaces. Office streets will incorporate gardens with seating areas, while retail streets will encourage pedestrian traffic with public art and better lighting. A botanical garden in the shape of a circuit board, representing the Chinese city’s electronics industry, has been proposed for a space alongside the Civic Center.

“Our landscape and urban design strategies will rebalance Futian from a car-dominated city with a challenging street system to offer a more beautiful, more functional environment, from landscaped boulevards and greenspaces to plazas and large gathering spaces,” said Sean O’Malley, the principal leading the masterplan from SWA Group...

Gensler's Sustainable Shanghai Tower: Asia’s Tallest Skyscraper

Gensler's Sustainable Shanghai Tower: Asia’s Tallest Skyscraper | Interactive Architecture | Scoop.it
Inhabitat interviews Gensler's Design Director, Chris Chan, on the design and construction of the Shanghai Tower - Asia's tallest skyscraper.

Gensler broke ground on the sustainable Shanghai Tower in the Pudong district of Shanghai, China in 2008. The tower is currently in construction and it’s one of three supertall buildings in Pudong. The elegant structure spirals up to the sky, and once it is completed in 2014, it will become one of the tallest towers in the world — only second to the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. The 632 meter structure is a testament to both modern architecture and the potential of engineering, and it also sets a precedent for sustainable super structures.
The tower takes the form of nine cylindrical buildings stacked atop each other, enclosed by layers of glass, and hosting public space for visitors including atriums, gardens, cafes, restaurants, retail space, a hotel, and 360-degree views of the city. The building will also include a rainwater recycling system and a series of wind turbines able to generate up to 350,000 kWh of electricity per year. Most notably, the tower’s glass façade was designed specifically to reduce wind loads on the building by 24%, which means that fewer construction materials are needed (including 25% less structural steel)...

Exploring Interactive Visualization

Exploring Interactive Visualization | Interactive Architecture | Scoop.it
We often spend time talking to organizations that initially believe developing one or more static infographics is the best approach. Many times, we discover that their objectives, narrative, existing content, and the profile of their target audience suggest we should be considering developing an interactive work product instead.
As infographics become a more prevalent form of communication, we look ahead to other meaningful ways to impart information. This article serves as an introduction to interactive visualizations, with more detailed articles on the topic still to come.

Feed Your City: How Architecture and Farming Work Together

Feed Your City: How Architecture and Farming Work Together | Interactive Architecture | Scoop.it

It’s easy to argue that architecture plays a part in the world of food; most restaurants are uniquely designed to better the dining experience after all. However, the architect’s ties to the industry go much deeper, and designers are beginning to revolutionize the way we see & manage food production.


As these cities grow, it is important that we continue to find new and innovative ways to provide for the populace. Vertical farming and urban agriculture offer relief in metropolitan environments, helping to reduce the pressure of public food supply while also changing our traditional approach to food production.

Culture Forest: Community-oriented ecological design by Unsangdong Architects

Culture Forest: Community-oriented ecological design by Unsangdong Architects | Interactive Architecture | Scoop.it

Unsangdong Architects have designed “Culture Forest”, a multi-use building and art center located in SeongDong-gu, Republic of Korea. The project is expected to be completed next year.


From the architects:

'The scenery looking at Seongdong will be as open as possible, providing a landscape of intensive and storytelling experience... Each program consists of an eco friendly and creative cultural space and green area. The skin of will unify architecture and nature through green walls and generates energy by solar powered panel skin.'


Visit the link to read the complete architect's description of the winning proposal for this new cultural development that integrates technology, ecology, and community...
