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.

Au centre de Jakarta, ce bâtiment sera le symbole de l'engagement de l'Indonésie pour le développement durable.

Programme ambitieux dans le design comme dans les technologies.

Tracy Galvin's curator insight, April 24, 2014 11:32 AM

Hopefully, this will be the wave of the future. The building is designed specifically for the place it is going to sit and how it can gain the most energy from the natural resources available. They are taking advantage of the sunlight and geothermal sources of energy that do not pollute the environment and never run out.

A Tech-Savvy, LEED-Certified Residential Tower Complex for San Francisco

A Tech-Savvy, LEED-Certified Residential Tower Complex for San Francisco | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it
Designed by SF-based Handel Architects, the complex holds 754 units in four towers, and is located in the newly up-and-coming mid-Market neighborhood, nestled between tech giants like Twitter and Spotify.

 

Although NEMA has a lot going for it in the LEED-Certified design department (polished concrete or wood floors, quartz countertops, soaking tubs and Hansgrophe faucets in every unit, a forthcoming outdoor Public Art Plaza, and Club Solarium inspired for NorCal wineries) it's the tech innovations offered by NEMA that really demand attention. With an eye on the next generation of renters, NEMA has positioned itself wisely to appeal to both those who are able to fork over a little more for sleek, modern design and urban techies who will be wowed by the impressive digital amenities - to say this place is "fully wired" would be a vast understatement...

Site-Specific Innovation: Çanakkale Antenna Tower by IND and Powerhouse Company

Site-Specific Innovation: Çanakkale Antenna Tower by IND and Powerhouse Company | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

The close collaboration of Rotterdam-based practices IND and Powerhouse Company for the design of a new 100-m-tall observation and telecommunications tower in Çanakkale, a Turkish city and seaport located on the southern Asian coast of the Hellespont,  articulates far-reaching technological and programmatic ambitions.

The tower is planned to operate as a broadcast antenna as well as to engage visitors- taking them on a contemplative journey, allowing them time to ponder as they walk along a raised, looping path that runs through the forest before returning to a hilltop observation deck offering panoramic vistas.
Besides its distinctive and aesthetic significance, the tower was conceived with the intention becoming a dynamic public destination, fostering social interactions. The project is all the more interesting as it integrates technologies to a scrupulously context-specific design, respectful of all of the site’s attributes. The architects also harness technological mediums so as to create a heightened architectural experience, appealing the visual and tactile senses.

SOM unveils Indonesian skyscraper that will harness wind power | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

Skidmore Owings & Merrill (SOM) has revealed designs for a 530-metre skyscraper in Jakarta that will harvest wind energy through an opening at its peak.

Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) has revealed designs for a skyscraper in Jakarta that will be over 500 metres high and will harvest wind energy through an opening at its peak. With a proposed height of approximately 530 metres, the Pertamina Energy Tower will be twice as high as Wisma 46, currently the tallest building in Indonesia, and will feature an integrated "wind funnel" that generates energy from prevailing air currents.
