España perderá población en 2013 por primera vez desde 1981

España perderá población en 2013 por primera vez desde 1981 | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

El número de población en España descenderá en 2013 por primera vez desde 1981, al pasar de los 46.196.278 millones de este año a los 46.094.454 proyectados por el Instituto Nacional de Estadística (INE) para el próximo año. Esta cifra alcanzaría en 2052 los 41,5 millones de habitantes, un 10,2 por ciento menos que en este 2012.

 

Así, el estudio 'Proyecciones de Población a corto plazo (2012-2022) y a largo plazo (2012-2052)', señala que, de mantenerse la tendencia demográfica actual, España contaría en 2022 con 45,0 millones de habitantes, un 2,5 por ciento menos que este año.

Snøhetta's Powerhouse at Brattorkaia is the World's Northernmost Energy-Positive Office Building

Snøhetta's Powerhouse at Brattorkaia is the World's Northernmost Energy-Positive Office Building | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

Powerhouse at Brattorkaia will make use of solar cells, heat pumps, and sea water to become the world's most Northernmost energy-positive building. Located in downtown Trondheim, this office building was designed by Snøhetta, and received the environmental classification "Outstanding" from BREEAM NOR. It's yet another example of why Norway is such a sustainability role model and demonstrates that renewables make sense even in cold northern climes.

A Sustainable Water Treatment Facility for Portland by Skylab Architecture

A Sustainable Water Treatment Facility for Portland by Skylab Architecture | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

Seven concrete fins provide a green roof that collects rainwater at this new engineering facility for a wastewater treatment plant in Portland, Oregon.

The new single-storey building was oriented along the path of the sun featuring seven folded cast-in-place concrete roof forms that channel storm water sustainably through the eco-roof. The storm water then drains along the berms into a visible storm water collection system leading back to the Columbia Slough.

As an intentional demonstration, the building and its immediate landscape employ signage and educational elements to celebrate the Columbia Slough ecosystem where the project is located as well as share information about the regional watershed. Inspired by the native landscape and its industrial past, the building is an elegant combination of landform, indigenous planting, formal geometry, and durable construction systems that support staff and the public interface.

What if we could rebuild New York City?

What if we could rebuild New York City? | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it
New York has become one of the world’s most populous, densely packed cities. What if you could redraw the city’s map – and build it from scratch?

 

If we were designing New York today, how different would it look?

The new New York City would balance the relationship between the information networks that the metropolis depends on and Earth’s finite resources.

All vital components of life would be monitored and attuned to the needs of every organism, not just humans. Supplies of food and water, our energy and waste and even our air would be sensibly scrutinised. Thanks to masses of miniaturised low-cost electronic components deployed across the city, communication becomes far easier. New York will grow and adapt to millions of new minds entering it everyday.

The city would make sure every need is provided for within its borders. How we provide nutrients, transports, and shelter would be updated. Dilapidated buildings would be replaced with vertical agriculture and new kinds of housing would join cleaner, greener ways to get around the city. What were once streets become snaking arteries of livable spaces, embedded with renewable energy sources, low-tech, green vehicles for mobility and productive nutrient zones. The former street grid could provide the foundation for new flexible networks. By reengineering the obsolete streets, we can create robust and ecologically active pathways.

While all this may sound optimistic, some of this city of tomorrow is already taking shape...

Norm Miller's curator insight, April 18, 2:36 PM

What a great academic exercise!  The question is really applicable to all new cities and city undergoing renovation.  More mixed use, greener, better transport systems, more shared everything and more self-sufficient describe the plan.

[Video] URBANSCREEN | Projection Mapping The Interior Of A Massive Gas Tank

[Video] URBANSCREEN | Projection Mapping The Interior Of A Massive Gas Tank | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

What do you do with an empty, 112-meter high, former gas tank?


The large black cylinder known as the Gasometer Oberhausen looms over the Rhine. Once the pressure valve between early 20th Century oil industries, this industrial petroleum holder, now an exhibition space, stands today a giant, tar-coated question mark to all artists with the scale and scope to fill its astounding volume.   

Before Bremen-based, site-specific projection mapping collective URBANSCREEN got their hands on it, they first had questions of their own: "Who is the storyteller in projection mapping?" asks creative director Thorsten Bauer in our documentary, viewable above. The answer led to 320° Licht, a projection-mapping installation in which the colossal tank is the canvas for large-scale visual virtuosity, part of the exhibition "The Appearance of Beauty" at Gasometer Oberhausen.

La recuperación de la economía española llevará al menos una década, según BBVA Research

La recuperación de la economía española llevará al menos una década, según BBVA Research | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

El Servicio de Estudios de BBVA cree que la recuperación de la economía española llevará al menos una década y advierte de que la evolución posterior dependerá de cómo se gestione la salida de la crisis. Por ello, considera que la actual "encrucijada" y el tiempo que queda por delante debe servir para sentar las bases de un crecimiento a largo plazo "equilibrado, sólido e inclusivo".

 

Así lo señala la entidad en un reciente estudio titulado 'Los retos a largo plazo de la economía española', en el que plantea como objetivo a converger con EE.UU. y los principales países de la UE en renta per cápita.

 

Según apunta el informe, el 'gap' que arrastra España en renta per cápita con estos países de referencia oscila entre el 20% y el 40%, y se explica, entre otras cosas, por el elevado desempleo, derivado de un "mercado de trabajo que funciona sustancialmente peor que en otros países", una población activa con menor capital humano y también por un menor capital tecnológico, herencia de un gasto en I+D sobre PIB que se sitúa alrededor del 70% por debajo del de EE.UU. o los países de la UE.

The world's first net-zero energy skyscraper rises in Indonesia

The world's first net-zero energy skyscraper rises in Indonesia | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it
The Pertamina Energy Tower's curved façade is precisely calibrated for Jakarta's proximity to the equator to mitigate solar heat gain year-round.

 

The world's first net-zero energy skyscraper soon will grace the center of Jakarta, Indonesia — the Pertamina Energy Tower. When it's finished in 2019, it will be 99 stories high and serve as the headquarters of the national energy company. In addition to the 20,000 people who will work there, it will be the centerpiece of a campus that has a mosque, a sports center and a 2,000-seat auditorium for the performing arts.

Shaped like a funnel, the top of the tower opens at the top, capturing wind and sucking it inside to run a series of vertical wind turbines that provide 25 percent of the building's electricity.

The building is designed to be a symbol of Indonesia's commitment to sustainable development. Find more details at the link.

Efficient light in Geneva

Efficient light in Geneva | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

The new WTO extension building for some 300 staff members offers a compelling view out over Lake Geneva with a sense of lightness and elegance. The idea was to create an extension that was a transparent as possible and did not seem at all solid in order to blend in best with the surrounding park; the proposal used a reduced formal vocabulary to create a long, glass cube on a set-back plinth boasting glazed frontage.

Nevertheless, the project set out to achieve high energy efficiency levels and obtain Swiss Minergie-P certification. Thanks to ingenious facilities technology, a heat recovery system and the use of Nimbus LED luminaires, this ambitious target was achieved even with the entire glass frontage chosen.

Rainforest Guardian: A Lotus-Shaped Concept Skyscraper

Rainforest Guardian: A Lotus-Shaped Concept Skyscraper | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

When you add one part skyscraper, one part forest-saving reservoir, and one part eco-laboratory, you get the all-parts-awesome behemoth known as the Rainforest Guardian, a conceptual design that looks like a giant metal lotus flower sticking out of the expansive Amazon rainforest.

Designed by Jie Huang, Jin Wei, Qiaowan Tang, Yiwei Yu, and Zhe Hao from China, the architectural beast is not like your average skyscraper. In contrast to the normally spearhead-like structure of your typical cloud-kissing building, the top of the Guardian has the most surface area. This allows it to catch and store hundreds of gallons of rainwater to save for the dry season. It also gives the building an organic, futuristic aesthetic that seems more at home in a galaxy far, far away than on our own world. Not to mention, the building is driping with dozens of long, wet vines—making it some fusion of nature and artificial design. No wonder it was an honorable mention at this year's eVolvo Skyscraper Competition...

Has the time come for floating cities? | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it
Could our cities be seaworthy – or are remarkable new proposals for floating urban communities merely utopian sci-fi?

 

A floating village at London's Royal Docks has the official nod, and Rotterdam has a Rijnhaven waterfront development experiment well under way. Eventually, whole neighbourhoods of water-threatened land could be given over to the seas. After decades of speculation and small-scale applications, the floating solution is finally enjoying political momentum – and serious investment...

Two-Sided Railway Station in Rotterdam's Fabric

Two-Sided Railway Station in Rotterdam's Fabric | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

Rotterdam Centraal Station’s relationship to the existing urban fabric called for different treatments of its north and south facades.


The commission for a new central railway station in Rotterdam had multiple clients, and complex program, encompassing the north and south station halls, train platforms, concourse, commercial space, offices, outdoor public space, and more. Finally, there was the station’s relationship to Rotterdam itself: while city leaders envisioned the south entrance as a monumental gateway to the city, the proximity of an historic neighborhood to the north necessitated a more temperate approach.

Team CS, a collaboration among Benthem Crouwel Architekten, MVSA Meyer en Van Schooten Architecten, and West 8, achieved a balancing act with a multipart facade conceived over the project’s decade-long gestation. On the south, Rotterdam Centraal Station trumpets its presence with a swooping triangular stainless steel and glass entryway, while to the north a delicate glass-house exterior defers to the surrounding urban fabric.

Partly Hidden Beach House with Unobstructed Sea Views in Norway

Partly Hidden Beach House with Unobstructed Sea Views in Norway | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it
Split House is a peculiar beach house partly hidden under ground. The house's two levels are made of natural materials. Each level enables lovely sea views.

The Oslo-based architectural studio JVA designed a beach house that folds into the landscape. Located near the sea, the residence is partly hidden under ground, allowing unobstructed sea views for the neighbours. Capturing the best panoramic views, the house offers a unique living experience.

The roof is covered with grass and can be also used as a terrace whilst large expanses of glass enable panoramic views to relax and inspire. The interior feels light and airy, opening up to the landscape, with transparency playing a key role in this project, providing an incredibly warm and bright environment.

Kengo Kuma's Modern Tea House

Kengo Kuma's Modern Tea House | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

In the garden of the Museum für Angewandte Kunst Frankfurt, Kengo Kuma’ s modern teahouse was built. In the design, traditional teahouse architecture is developed while Kengo ventures into unexplored territory in search of flexible buildings.

He has arrived at a truly ephemeral structure with this project; the teahouse does not rise up from the ground as a fixed wooden construction, but unfolds as an airborne form. When a ventilation system is activated, the teahouse swells into shape like a white high-tech textile blossom. In its interior, comprising a surface of approximately twenty square metres, are nine tatami mats, an electric stove for the water kettle, a tokonoma niche and a preparation room. Integrated LED technology allows the use of the teahouse at night; the interior can be heated by way of the membrane.

TZG, in association with landscape architects Taylor Cullity Lethlean, won an Australia wide competition for the National Arboretum, on a 290ha. site of bushfire-damaged land north of Canberra's Lake Burley Griffin. The Arboretum is a collection of 100 forests, each home to a single internationally-endangered species. The species are chosen from the many thousands that are threatened world-wide, and curated according to colour of foliage, pattern of bark/leaf, filigree of branches, scent and texture, and suitability to local growth conditions.
