Why Do BAD GUYS Always Get The Best Houses?

Why Do BAD GUYS Always Get The Best Houses? | retail and design | Scoop.it

In this interesting article for the Financial Times, Edwin Heathcote dissects two Hollywoodhomes that are infamous as the homes of slick movie bad guys. The Lovell Health Housedesigned by Richard Neutra appeared in LA Confidential as the home of pornographer and pimp Pierce Patchett; the Sheats Goldstein Residence appeared in The Big Lebowski – again as the home of a pornographer – and was designed by none other than “Hollywood’s favourite architect” John Lautner. Heathcote probes the two architects’ design influences and ideas, and of course offers an explanation as to why “”bad guys always seem to get the best houses“.

Moscow’s Mercury City Overtakes The Shard as Europe’s Tallest Skyscraper | Extreme Architecture | News, E-learning, Architecture of the future at news.arcilook.com

Moscow’s Mercury City Overtakes The Shard as Europe’s Tallest Skyscraper | Extreme Architecture | News, E-learning, Architecture of the future at news.arcilook.com | retail and design | Scoop.it
According to buildings analyst Emporis, the tower surpassed the 310-metre-height of Piano’s London tower in September and it now stands at 339 metres tall. The tower is one of five Russian skyscrapers in the list of ten tallest buildings in Europe, while Moscow is also the city with the most high-rise buildings on the continent. As an expert in large-scale construction projects, Emporis reports that the property boom there can be credited to a number of factors. “Many Russian and foreign investors focus on prestigious building projects,” said analyst Matthew Keutenius. “Furthermore, there are less building regulations in Moscow than in other European metropolises.”

Fun Little Street Art Where the Surroundings Become the Artwork’s Setting [PHOTOS] | retail and design | Scoop.it
Dubbing himself as “more than your average street artist” by his Facebook page biography, UK artist and designer JPS may be right. His street art, though often involving pop culture characters like heroes and villains along with some frighteningly realistic horror movie characters, JPS also creates some fun little pieces of street art.

Urbanismo luz y nuevas estrategias - Plataforma Arquitectura

Urbanismo luz y nuevas estrategias - Plataforma Arquitectura | retail and design | Scoop.it
Urbanismo luz y nuevas estrategias Plataforma Arquitectura El urbanismo luz es una disciplina reciente que inicié en Francia hacía fines de los años 80.
Lola Ripollés's insight:
Iluminar bien ciudades, centros comerciales y resaltar monumentos o zonas históricas. Llega el urbanismo luz. El urbanismo luz, inicialmente desarrollado por diseñadores de iluminación franceses y más tarde por ingleses, se adoptó progresivamente en todos los países europeos. A partir de 1992 se extendió a los países asiáticos y a ciudades de América del Norte, y más recientemente en algunas ciudades de América del Sur (pudimos estudiar el plan maestro de iluminación de São Paulo en 2012 en Brasil).

Hexagonal Shaped Facade of DUO Skyscrapers by Buro Ole Scheeren | Extreme Architecture | News, E-learning, Architecture of the future at news.arcilook.com | retail and design | Scoop.it
Buro Ole Scheeren has unveiled a pair of skyscrapers with concave walls for Singapore’s historic Kampong Glam district. Buro Ole Scheeren has designed the twin DUO towers to have heights of 186 and 170 metres, with the former to contain over 600 apartments, while the latter will accommodate offices and a hotel. The building will sit between the city’s commercial district and the Kampong Glam area, which was once home to the Malaysian aristocracy and today contains a mix of Malay and Muslim communities. A hexagonal pattern of windows will cover the facades of the towers and floors will step back and forth using a system of cantilevers.

A New University Building Design Promotes Sustainable Development In Vietnam

A New University Building Design Promotes Sustainable Development In Vietnam | retail and design | Scoop.it
Vietnam-based architect firm Vo Trong Nghia Architects designed an environmentally-friendly structure for FPT University that is located about 34 km away from Hanoi.The façade of the seven-story building is designed to look like a checkerboard, with huge floor trees placed in the openings. The openings also let in lots of natural sunlight, saving on energy.Measuring at 11,065-square-meters, the structure will also feature a green roof to protect the whole building from too much sunlight.According to the architects, “the structure is intended to promote sustainable development in Vietnam,” and “instill sustainable practices in the future generations”.
