Taiwan Skyscraper's Facade Covered in Thousands of Wind Turbines

Taiwan Skyscraper's Facade Covered in Thousands of Wind Turbines | retail and design | Scoop.it

Beijing-based Decode Urbanism Office has designed a 1,150 foot (350m) skyscraper located in Taichung City, Taiwan, to house the city’s Department of Urban Development, commercial concerns, museums, retail areas and exhibitions spaces. 


The building’s design was inspired by the plum blossom, the national flower of China and Taiwan. The building’s twisting and turning structure is intended to evoke the experience of plum blossoms bursting into bloom.

To do so, the facade has thousands of small diamond shaped wind turbines, which produce enough energy to power the building. These wind generators are set into the facade grid, oscillating as wind skirts the building.

Quid de la vue sur l'extérieur et du bruit à l'intérieur, avec toutes ses turbines en façade.

JMS1kiddz's curator insight, October 15, 2013 10:42 AM

new and innovative way to produce power for an entire building. The source of energy is embedded in the architecture. - Madi Chaput

JMS1kiddz's curator insight, October 16, 2013 7:17 AM

Yet again another environmentally friendly design. This building has been designed to generate its own energy and power LED lighting throughout the building. This is done through the power of wind turbines which the building is completely surrounded by. It is becoming the newest trend in design to create buildings and structures that are helpful to the environment.

-Heather Leigh Arends

Young French practice WINS Guggenheim Helsinki contest

Young French practice WINS Guggenheim Helsinki contest | retail and design | Scoop.it
Parisian newcomer Moreau Kusunoki Architects has seen off five other finalists, including emerging UK star Asif Khan, to win the competition to design Helsinki’s new Guggenheim museum

Via association concert urbain
Lola Ripollés's insight:

The victorious scheme, dubbed Art in the City, features nine ‘low-lying’ pavilions and a lighthouse-like tower clad in charred timber. The jury hailed its concept for the museum’s new £100 million Finnish outpost as ‘deeply respectful of the site’ and a ‘fragmented, non-hierarchical, horizontal campus of linked pavilions where art and society could meet and inter-mingle’.

The husband-and-wife firm, which was set up in 2011 by former Shigeru Ban talent Hiroko Kusunoki and ex-Kengo Kuma architect Nicolas Moreau, takes home the €100,000 first prize.

Tomorrow's cities: Just how smart is Songdo? - BBC News | retail and design | Scoop.it
Songdo, built from scratch on reclaimed land near Seoul, is often described as the world's first smart city but has it been a success?

Via massimo facchinetti
Lola Ripollés's insight:

The city has been planned around a central park, and designed so that every resident can walk to work in the business district. Mrs Kwon moved here from Seoul three years ago and says her daily commute is a 15-minute walk across the park to her job as a translator.

"After lunch I walk with my co-workers in the park - it's an important element in my life now," she told me. "When I lived in Seoul, I had to drive to see my friends, or my son's friends; living here in Songdo, my son can ride his bike to his friends' houses and I can walk to hang out with mine. It's brought me closer to my neighbours."

RIBA selects Britain's best new buildings

RIBA selects Britain's best new buildings | retail and design | Scoop.it
The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has revealed the winners of its 2015 National Awards. This year is marked by an increase in housing projects, which make up a quarter of the overall winners.

Via Mark Warren
Lola Ripollés's insight:

In my opinion, this change is quite positive. 

The structure of the awards has been tinkered with this year, and RIBA has dropped the European component to focus purely on UK-based projects. This results in 37 winners from around the UK (down from last year's total of 56 from the UK and EU), from which one winner will be chosen to receive the Stirling Prize on October 15. London fares best, with a full 14 winners located in the capital, but Scotland is well represented too, with five winners, and it's arguably a more geographically balanced selection than one might expect.

RIBA selects Britain's best new buildings. 

 

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has revealed the winners of its 2015 National Awards. While last year was dominated by massive projects like the Shard and the Library of Birmingham, this year is marked by an increase in housing projects, which make up a quarter of the overall winners.
