A video on parametric design to optimize views.

Wassim Jabi's curator insight, February 1, 2014 6:14 PM

A really simple method with great effect. Shoot rays from your building out and see if they reach a desired view. The grasshopper definition looks way too complicated. I still believe an actual script can be far more compact (I actually have written a very similar script to evaluate daylight availability: How much of the sky does a location on a building see? Same concept, different problem).

Materials Of The Future: 7 Amazing Trends For 2014 And Beyond

Materials Of The Future: 7 Amazing Trends For 2014 And Beyond | Architecture + Design News | Scoop.it

The history of architecture is deeply engrained in technological developments of the time. Skyscrapers would have never reached such heights without developments in steel, for example, and facades would have never slimmed down without thin-shell concrete.


In a time that is so buzzing with technological development, we cannot help but salivate a little at the material prospects for architecture that are just on the horizon. With 2014 just beginning, we want to take a moment to see what drastic innovations may be leaking into the world of architecture in the near future.

London's future skyline captured in new visualiations

London's future skyline captured in new visualiations | Architecture + Design News | Scoop.it

This series of images by architectural rendering studio Hayes Davidson envisages how London's skyline might look in 20 years time.

Over 200 towers with a height of 20 storeys or greater are planned in the UK capital over the next two decades and Hayes Davidson has visualised how these new buildings will appear alongside existing skyscrapers such as Renzo Piano's The Shard and Norman Foster's The Gherkin.

 

The images were created for an exhibition opening later this year at New London Architecture (NLA) entitled London's Growing... Up! which will chart the growth of tall building construction in London since the 1960s and look at the impact skyscrapers will have on the city in the near future.

"As London's population gets bigger and bigger, and new development for London takes place within the constraints of the green belt, we have to increase the density of the city," said Peter Murray, who is chairman of NLA and the exhibition curator.

Google Wants You To Build More Lego Models

Google Wants You To Build More Lego Models | Architecture + Design News | Scoop.it
If you find yourself in a creative block, mindlessly spinning around your 3D model, there is now another type of … creative block that can save you. Google has brought all the fun you once had (or are still having) toying with Legos into the digital realm with "Build With Chrome." Similar to Sketchup, “Build With Chrome” allows you to place 3D models into Google Maps as geo-specific projects. With all the functionality of a Google+ account, the models can then be shared, discussed, and added-to by your peers and circles. The experiment also includes a version for your touch screen, which offers a more “hands-on” Lego play. We can already foresee its impact on the future of presentation boards at architecture school. On, and the best par...

The symbolic element of the plan is the internal and external double “skin” honeycomb motif that wraps up the structure. Through its double-layering, the “skin” allows natural light in, thus creating light effects within the internal spaces. The cladding is made of alveolus-shaped metal and glass panels of different size that can be partially opened.

Yale School of Management by Foster + Partners | Architecture + Design News | Scoop.it

The new Yale School of Management (SOM) Campus will unite the SOM’s faculty departments together at a single location for the first time. The building has been designed in response to an integrated curriculum that has the potential to reinvent business school education.

The ground floor contains the public space, cafes and auditorium, with the classrooms and study areas on the upper floors. The classrooms are contained within eight double-height oval drums, visible through the glazed façade. These curved spaces facilitate the integrated teaching methods of the curriculum – more than one lecturer can address the class at once, while still allowing every student a clear view and encouraging free interaction. - See more at: http://architype.org/project/yale-school-of-management/#sthash.6Csdu21M.dpuf

The Hotel at the end of the Earth by Saunders Architecture

The Hotel at the end of the Earth by Saunders Architecture | Architecture + Design News | Scoop.it

The Fogo Island Inn and art gallery designed by Saunders Architecture is situated on the rugged coast of Newfoundland, Canada. The 29 guest rooms all face the ocean and look onto the fishing grounds that originally attracted people to Fogo Island centuries ago.


From the architect:

Ecological and self-sustaining systems were subtly integrated from the beginning of the project, incorporating technologies to reduce and conserve energy and water usage. The inn is a highly insulated steel frame building and the windows have the equivalent rating of triple pane glazing. Rainwater from the roof is collected into two cisterns in the basement, filtered, and used for the toilet and laundry water and also to be used as a heat sink for all of the kitchen appliances. Solar thermal panels supply hot water to the in-floor radiant heating as well as the laundry and kitchen equipment. The sound transmission classification of 69 between guest rooms ensures that guests hear only the sound of the nearby waves. The outbuilding houses wood fired boilers and solar thermal panels on the roof. The required number and orientation of the solar panels dictated the form of the outbuilding.

KSP Designs Floating ‘Urban Helix’ for Changsha

KSP Designs Floating ‘Urban Helix’ for Changsha | Architecture + Design News | Scoop.it

KSP Jürgen Engel Architekten International has been awarded first prize for their proposal of a new “urban helix” in Changsha, China, that extends public space from the city center into Lake Meixi. The concept serves as a catalyst, marking a termination point on a new street axis that culminates into a pedestrian ramp symbolically spiraling 30 meters above a 20,000 square meter artificial island.

Considered as a “city built from scratch,” Changsha has been host to a slew of architectural and urbanist projects in recent years. From Zaha Hadid’s ambitious Culture and Arts Centre to KPF’s 120 million square foot master plan, the city has been an experimental hot bed, expecting to grow to 180,000 inhabitants within the coming years...

ParadigmGallery's curator insight, October 10, 2013 4:45 PM

Since I was gifted an amazing mid century modern architect's home, I can't get enough of these types of posts. Here are a couple + of the main points...read this well written article for more.

 

"The more mid-century modern homes we see and work on, the more surprised we are that so many good design ideas have been disregarded or forgotten over the last 60 years. These ideas aren’t just “features” or fashionable details; they’re significant concepts that allow people more opportunity in their lives and an extraordinary quality of life."

 

One of the subtlest, albeit most pleasing, design moves in MCM design is the intentional move to extend the material of a wall from inside to outside (or vice versa).

 

Let nature do the work. MCM design is very clever about using the inherent characteristics of materials as finishes within the home. The MCM design philosophy is all about authenticity and once you put on your authenticity thinking cap......read more.....

 

Fantastic reminder of why MCM is so important today....
