Vincent Athias's curator insight, March 1, 2013 3:28 AM

"Si tu es en manque d'inspiration, demande conseil à la matière". Voici ce que disait Louis Kahn à ses étudiants. Le Guardian nous offre un article tout en nuances sur le rapport quasi religieux de l'architecte à ses matériaux de construction, à la géométrie et aux choses sensibles. Et pour une fois, je vous laisse le titre d'origine, car en français ça ne donne vraiment rien :).

[Sydney Opera House] Mathematical Excursions To Architecture

[Sydney Opera House] Mathematical Excursions To Architecture | Loving_architecture | Scoop.it
The world's greatest buildings provide a window on great math and great design.

 

One of the world’s great buildings, the Sydney Opera House, provides an illuminating example. In January 1957, the young Danish architect Jørn Utzon won a competition to design an opera and concert hall complex on a dramatic piece of land that juts into Sydney Harbor. Utzon’s design featured an arrangement of soaring vaulted roofs that looked like a cluster of sailboats under full sail. However, the path from Utzon’s imaginative design of the vaults to their realization would prove to be a formidable challenge. It would take from 1957 to 1963 — years of exploration, analysis, disagreements, and hard work — to determine a workable combination of geometry, materials, and methods of construction.

La oficina NLÉ Architects, dirigida por el arquitecto nigeriano Kunlé Adeyemi, está construyendo una nueva escuela multinivel en Makoko, una de las regiones más pobladas de Lagos, Nigeria. Aunque esto no suena muy raro, la diferencia es que, en un esfuerzo por resolver los problemas de la escasez de tierras y la gestión deficiente de los desechos en un área propensa a las inundaciones, esta escuela se levanta sobre plataformas flotantes.
