Happy Birthday I.M. Pei ...!

Happy Birthday I.M. Pei ...! | retail and design | Scoop.it

Ieoh Ming Pei, the Chinese-American architect who is arguably the greatest living member of the modernist generation of architects, turns 97 today. When he received his Pritzker Prize in 1983, the jury citation stated that he “has given this century some of its most beautiful interior spaces and exterior forms.”

Though known as a modernist, Pei has rejected the implications of globalism inherent in the “International Style,” instead advocating contextual development and variation in style. He has commented that “the important distinction is between a stylistic approach to the design; and an analytical approach giving the process of due consideration to time, place, and purpose.” On a trip to China in 1974 he even urged Chinese architects to look more to their architectural tradition, rather than designing in a Western style.

Pei’s most well known work is likely his crystalline extension to the Louvre in Paris; other highly influential works include the Bank of China Tower in Hong Kong, the East Building of the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC and the JFK Presidential Library in Boston.

La Estación Uruguai se localiza en el barrio Tijuca, Zona Norte de la ciudad de Rio de Janeiro y es parte de la extensión de la línea 1 del Metro, ocupando antiguo aparcamiento de trenes y coches, conocido como “Rabicho da Tijuca”. El espacio, con altura de techo reducida y luces estructurales limitados, no comportaban las necesidades de una estación de metro.

Lola Ripollés's insight:

Para que luego digan que la normativa restrictiva mata la creatividad.

En este proyecto la forma surgió como una consecuencia lógica de las restricciones de zonificación que dictaron la altura y pendiente del techo, así como el área requerida en cada fachada. Estos requisitos luego fueron superpuestos con las necesidades del cliente, incluyendo grandes plantas para dar cabida a los grandes equipos de animación, y levantando el edificio del suelo para dar un poco de privacidad y seguridad al trabajo delicado que se realiza en el interior. La relación entre profundidades máximas de los espacios de oficina y luz natural dio forma de 'V' a las plantas, con vistas al exuberante patio cerrado por debajo.

[Indianapolis, USA] Parking Structure ART Facade / Urbana

[Indianapolis, USA] Parking Structure ART Facade / Urbana | retail and design | Scoop.it
Architects: Urbana Location: Sidney & Lois Eskenazi Hospital, 720 Eskenazi Avenue, Indianapolis, IN 46202, USA Year: 2014 Photographs: Serge HoeltschiFrom the architect. This project began with an interest in challenging the typical notion of the parking structure as an unappreciated infrastructural typology by transforming the new Eskenazi Hospital parking structure into a binary, synthetic terrain. During the design process, an interest in camouflage evolved into an approach that would create a very large dynamic, interactive element for the City. Rather than an actively kinetic approach, with all of the inevitable maintenance and longevity concerns that accompany those types of project, we were instead working towards an approach that capitalizes on the fact that most viewers would, themselves, be moving on bicycles or in automobiles. Thus, the design ultimately became something that offers a degree a variability of color and form as one passes by the project. The awareness of this, interestingly enough, occurs whether someone is directly watching or even just seeing it out of their periphery of vision

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.”

Un paseo por el cielo. Buena idea, no?

La instalación "Air Garden" de Ryo Yamada es un paseo, pero no en el sentido tradicional de la palabra. No es un paseo que conecta un punto a otro, ya que la pasarela no conduce a un destino concreto, pero, más bien un paseo que conecta un jardín cerrado a la inmensidad del cielo abierto. El artista cree que todo el mundo comparte un deseo común para el cielo, que representa la libertad y la igualdad.

Aya Mehra's curator insight, January 19, 12:48 PM

Ok so this seems like the perfect way to escape the city. 
But does this little jungle within a jungle of industrial forms block out the noise? Does it collect insects that we dont want hanging around in my hair? Or is this just the way i am looking at it?
Any how, my primary concern is the noise. This seems like the perfect get away for people of all ages and also a place in which jobs and goals can collaborate to better the world.
 Imagine this playground throughout all four seasons and how in this one spot, people from all over the city can come together and you finally explore what makes this city so diverse and unique

12 Classic [Remment Lucas] Koolhaas QUOTES | retail and design | Scoop.it
Pritzker-Prize Laureate Remment Lucas Koolhaas (you probably know him as ”Rem”) turns 68 today. The co-founder of one of the world’s most renowned architecture firms, OMA, and an urban-planner/philosopher whose theories have provoked admiration (and ire) for over thirty years, Koolhaas is undeniably one of a kind.In honor of the occasion, today we’ll be bringing you all things Koolhaas: a fabulous article by former New York Times critic, Nicolai Ouroussoff, a Round-Up of all of OMA’s latest works, an original ArchDaily editorial, and this list of quotes from the architect himself – some poignant, all provocative (this is Koolhaas, after all). Such as this gem: “People can inhabit anything. And they can be miserable in anything and ecstatic in anything. More and more I think that architecture has nothing to do with it. Of course, that’s both liberating and alarming…”
