Disney Research has demonstrated a new method for wireless power transmission that induces electrical currents in an enclosed metallic structure and could charge your devices automatically the moment you walk into a room, making electrical cords and charging cradles a thing of the past.
Located in the center of the enclosed site, the roofs are lightly positioned in various angles, opening towards all possible directions to allow physical and visual approach from anywhere. Gentle curvature of the roofs creates a sequence of scenery, dividing garden, lounge, lunchroom, nursing room and office, while the spaces are still kept connected as one.Architects : Takashige Yamashita OfficeLocation : Yamanashi Prefecture, JapanArchitect in Charge : Takashige YamashitaArea : 177.24 m2Project Year : 2016Photographs : Kenichi SuzukiManufacturers : Central Glass, Aica

Le Cube vert, accueillant le siège mondial d’Euronews, chaîne d’information européenne, est conçu comme un immense parallélépipède transpercé par deux atriums coniques introduisant la lumière et l’air, et offrant des vues sur le paysage environnant et des accès aux berges de la Saône. Ces atriums s’apparentent à deux yeux gigantesques fixant le fleuve et son environnement. Le geste spectaculaire d’évidement du volume par deux atriums ouvre la façade et favorise la ventilation naturelle diurne et nocturne à l’intérieur de la construction. Ces espaces à ciel ouvert offrent des lieux de détente accessibles depuis les bureaux. Si le volume architectural se découvre d’abord comme un bloc monolithe, ses extrusions et sa résille enrichissent sa matérialité – graphique, coloré, poreux et aérien.
Posted on the OMA website with the description, "Presentation on how S, M, L, XL intends to both undermine and simultaneously reinforce architecture," this lecture delivered by a then-51-year-old Rem Koolhaas delves into the "intentions" behind the 1400-page behemoth monograph. The Dutch architect laments that he must spoil the experience of the book's nuanced relationships and surprises, stating "I'm exposing connections now that I would have preferred to remain hidden for you to discover or ignore."

It’s been a pretty special year for architects when it comes to technology. We’ve seen architectural apps become increasingly ubiquitous, hardware from the likes of Microsoft and HP that is more than a match for Apple, not to mention an exponential growth in our fascination with virtual and augmented reality. Innovative technology in the realm of architecture has begun to be rolled out with such regularity that we even created a dedicated new blog page for it.
The question is: Which of the many tech developments unveiled throughout the last 12 months are merely gimmicks that will disappear as fast as they arrived, and which are here to stay, becoming permanent fixtures within professional practice? We’ve compiled a list of 10 technologies that will proliferate during 2017, including hardware and software that architects should embrace both in the studio and on the construction site.

Una visión realmente moderna : El programa Case Study House fijaba que “las viviendas deberían poder ser producidas en serie y concebidas de acuerdo al espíritu de nuestra época, utilizando, en la medida de lo posible, materiales y técnicas extraídas de la industria militar y adaptadas a la expresión de la vida moderna”.
