[UTOPIES] L'architecte Vincent Callebaut travaille le biomimétisme pour "fantasmer la ville"

[UTOPIES] L'architecte Vincent Callebaut travaille le biomimétisme pour "fantasmer la ville" | Le BONHEUR comme indice d'épanouissement social et économique. | Scoop.it

Vincent Callebaut, architecte propose depuis près de 15 ans des projets que l'on pourrait qualifier d'utopiques ou d'avant-gardistes. Leurs points communs : ils prennent en compte les contraintes locales pour mieux répondre aux besoins des populations, notamment celles frappées par des catastrophes naturelles, et s'inspirent des formes et des matières observées dans la nature. Ses projets transgressent les frontières de l'architecture pour y mêler le biomimétisme.

'NEO-ANDEAN' architecture sprouts in Bolivia

'NEO-ANDEAN' architecture sprouts in Bolivia | Le BONHEUR comme indice d'épanouissement social et économique. | Scoop.it

"Brash, baroque and steeped in native Andean symbols, the mini-mansions are a striking sight on the caked-dirt streets of El Alto, the inexorably expanding sister city of Bolivia's capital."

Jason Wilhelm's curator insight, May 27, 2014 12:34 PM

The resurgence of old-style architecture in developed places is shown in this article. The New-Andean style of architecture showcases bright colors and traditional patterns of the natives in South America is gaining popularity once again. Old styles of living and architecture had been fading for many years, but are now coming back into popularity after many Native groups have revived their traditional cultures and ways of life.

As indigenous Bolivians moved from rural areas to the larger cities, they were able to establish themselves and become successful and eventually wealthy. They are now using their wealth to build opulent mansions that reflect their cultural heritage. Their new manors are blend of modern with traditional Aymara culture, symbolizing the Aymara's economic and political rise. 

Bob Beaven's curator insight, February 12, 2:48 PM

Indigenous peoples across the world are beginning to take pride in their heritage once again, after being told by the forces of the imperialism in their countries, that it was not as good as European culture.  This article shows how in Bolivia, the Aymara people, a native group of the country, are rising to political, economic, and social prominence in the country.  Even the country's leader is from this group.  The architecture of this new rich class reflects native heritage but has elements of globalization.  The "castle" mentioned in the article has indoor soccer pitches (originally a European Sport) but it has so much popularity in South America, that the region is known for it today (look no further than Argentina's Lionel Messi or Brazil's Neymar).  The ballrooms also have European chandeliers, but so strong is the native influenced expressed in the houses, that they take these global factors and make them their own.  I believe this is a beneficial fact, the indigenous people across the world should be proud of their heritage and diverse backgrounds.
