Parametric Space | Zaha Hadid Architects, Kollision, CAVI, Wahlberg | | Architecture, Design, Art, Technology | Scoop.it
© Kollision At first glance, ‘Parametric Space’ is a dark rectangular volume – four walls, floor and ceiling. However, in the presence of a visitor, what appears to be a normal flat ceiling reveals itself as a glowing and flexible membrane that physically moves down into a funnel that protrudes out towards the floor. The closer a visitor gets to the funnel, the further it moves down; by stepping back the membrane will retract back into the ceiling. © Kollision In addition to changing its shape, the membrane is also brought to life by thousands of dynamic light particles that inhabit the surface and react to the membrane’s movements. This creates an almost dreamy, yet tangible experience related to the architectural language that Zaha Hadid is known for. © Kollision The installation is brought to life by two laser scanner sensors that continuously gather information about visitors’ positions in the space. The positions are used for calculating the heights of the four actuators pushing

Carapace Masks | Filippo NASSETTI & Alessandro ZOMPARELLI | Italy | Architecture, Design, Art, Technology | Scoop.it
© MHOX Design Vidiam is a CARAPACE PROJECT product. Contemporary scientific and technological research are changing the way man relates to his body. Synthetic biology, advanced prosthetics, biohacking let imagine future scenarios of physical transformation and redefinition, aesthetic and performative. In this direction, Carapace is a possible evolution of the human body in which rigid elements similar to crustaceans' and insects' exoscheletons integrate and transform sensory districts: eyes, ears, nose, mouth. The masks collection Carapace is inspired by this vision: fossiles of a possible future, once worn these objects blur the limit between natural extension and artificial prosthesis. © MHOX Design Audiam mask is the fossile of a hearing's area evolution. The brain's occipital lobe, seat of the sight sense, expands itself transforming its relationship with the ear and the hearing sense, defining a new condition of hyperconnectivity.

9,5° chair by Rasmus B. Fex

9,5° chair by Rasmus B. Fex | Architecture, Design, Art, Technology | Scoop.it
Rasmus B. Fex The wonky look of this chair by Danish designer Rasmus B. Fex actually makes it stronger. By tilting the legs and back by 9.5 degrees but keeping the seat straight, Fex removed the need for a stabilising rod underneath. The chair was selected for use in the Knut Hamsun museum in Hamarøy, Norway, designed by Steven Holl. The chair is tilted at 9,5 degrees. By tilting the chair and then elevating one end of the seat back to a straight angle, a triangle was created. This actually made the construction stronger and reduced the need for a stabilising cross rod. In conclusion, it’s not always wrong to be wrong. The deconstruction of the original design served a higher purpose. Rasmus B. Fex In 2009, the interior architects behind the Knut Hamsun museum in Hamarøy, designed by Steven Holl, saw the chair in the “Nyttrom” interior magazine and decided to acquire 9,5° as the museum chair. 9,5° is part of Art with Function – Design Without.

Hydrogenate, Algae Farm to Recycle C2O Bio-hydrogen Airship | Vincent Callebaut Architectures | Shanghai, South China Sea | Architecture, Design, Art, Technology | Scoop.it
© Vincent Callebaut We have not reached the second decade of the new millennium but Belgian architect Vincent Callebaut is already imagining the cities of tomorrow. The “Hydrogenase” was conceived as a flying city powered by bio-fuels, wind turbines, and solar panels. © Vincent Callebaut Callebaut is proposing a new way of travelling, one that is slower than airplanes but faster than automobiles and ships. It flies at 2000 meters high and could carry up to 200 tons at 175 km/h. The semi-rigid and not pressurized airship consists of a vertical spine that twists along its 400 meter-high structure. PROGRAM : Algae Farm and Bio-Hydrogen Airship, Emergency Housings, Scientific Laboritories, Freight LOCATION : Shanghai, South China Sea FREIGHT : 200 Tons SPEED : 175 km/h ACTION FIELD : 5 - 10 000km HEIGHT : 480m DIAMETER : 180m SURFACE AREA : 350.000 m⊃2; INHABITED FLOOR COUNT : 67 AGRICULTURAL FIELDS : 8 WIND TURBINES : 20 HYDRO PROPELLERS : 32 MODEL & PERSPECTIVES : Vincent Callebaut

Sheets of Glass Cut into Layered Ocean Waves |Ben Young

Sheets of Glass Cut into Layered Ocean Waves |Ben Young | Architecture, Design, Art, Technology | Scoop.it
© Ben Young Self-taught artist Ben Young is a man of many exceptional talents from surfing and skateboarding to repairing furniture and working full-time as a qualified boat builder. He’s also spent the last decade exploring the art of sculpting with glass, an endeavor that’s become increasingly rewarding as galleries and collectors have started to take notice. © Ben Young Using sheet after sheet of carefully cut glass, Young builds both abstract and realistic interpretations of waves and bodies of water, undoubtedly influenced by growing up near the beautiful Bay of Plenty on the northern coast of New Zealand’s North Island. Many people assume his work is made with the help of machines, or maybe even 3D printing, but instead everything is done completely by hand, from his initial sketches on paper to the manual cutting of each glass pane, a process he aptly describes as “a lot of work.” You can see several more of his glass sculptures over on Tumblr © Ben Young © Ben Young © Ben

Dalian Shide stadium | NBBJ | Dalian, China | Architecture, Design, Art, Technology | Scoop.it
© NBBJ NBBJ‘s proposed design for the new Dalian Shide football stadium in China represents a new direction in sports architecture by moving away from the creation of a building based on pure form. The organic architecture of the building challenges the typical stadium typology to become more than an impressive skin wrapped around an ordinary seating bowl. © NBBJ Designed to emulate a garden, NBBJ’s Garden Stadium has only what is needed to thrive, and those functions are clearly organized and expressed. This simple effectiveness in design leads to a dramatically improved fan experience as well as greater ease of operations. In addition, the building’s carbon footprint is minimized, making Garden Stadium a part of a larger sustainable community. © NBBJ The reclaimed site captures a new place in the city, with spectacular views across the ocean and out to the mountains and center city. Growing from this new coastal park, the design proposes that the land is folded open to create two

© Lin Ho Starhill Gallery is perhaps Kuala Lumpur’s most iconic shopping mall, featuring an extraordinary array of luxury shops and fine dining restaurants. Spark’s design proposal dealt with the reinvention of the existing façade of Starhill Gallery facing Bukit Bintang. This reinvention of Starhill Gallery is designed by Stephen Pimbley, founding director of Spark and the architect behind Singapore’s hugely popular Clarke Quay. Architects: Spark Architects Location: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Photographs: Lin Ho © Lin Ho Stephen says, “Unlike many street-facing malls in Kuala Lumpur, our new façade for Starhill Gallery is firmly engaged with the public realm and generates valuable visual connections along this section of Bukit Bintang via the heavy footfall.

Futuristic Table And Chairs To Hide In It

Futuristic Table And Chairs To Hide In It | Architecture, Design, Art, Technology | Scoop.it
  Minimalist furniture has many advantages – it’s style, first of all, and it’s rather often a great space-saving solution. This furniture is no exclusion. AndViceVersa presents A-Cute, a set of furniture that includes two chairs and a table that join together to form a sculptural, multi-faceted shape when not in use – it’s a perfect idea if you don’t have much space, and the outer geometric shell completely conceals the chairs. The design is somewhat futuristic; those shapes are made of laser cut metal sheets that are hand folded based on digital prototyping. You can also order it with 4, 6, or 8 seats. The lines are amazing, isn’t that a work of futuristic art?

Ocean Deck House | Stelle Lomont Rouhani Architects | New York, USA | Architecture, Design, Art, Technology | Scoop.it
© Matthew Carbone Description From the architect. This ocean front residence captures the sense of indoor-outdoor living by introducing large cantilevered decks and roof decks. Designed for an active family who loves to cook and entertain, the ability to do so on each level is a driving element. As a measure to preserve the integrity of the dune, the house is pulled back from it to create three distinct experiences on each level. The ground level is nestled behind the dune and provides for a mixed wood and concrete paved patio with a pool, outdoor fireplace and covered ping-pong area. © Matthew Carbone Areas on this level intended for storage and lower level entry are enclosed by a combination of glass and concrete walls. The main floor is accessed from an exterior cantilevered stair that leads to the central light filled atrium. This main level houses all the bedrooms and a centrally located family room. © Matthew Carbone This house is designed as an upside down house, giving the

This cutting-edge Haier unit presents the manufacturer's obvious interest in creating good visual design, because people have to look at these cooling units, after all. © Haier © Haier The Haier 3D-printed air conditioning system could eventually be produced quite efficiently, even with varied models. Due to the adaptable nature of this form of fabrication, the appliance can be customized in shape and detail. The current example features some pretty intriguing wavelike patterns that bring great dimension and detail to the temperature-modifying machine. And while the appearance of this AC unit takes on a sculptural look, the tech within it is breakthrough as well.
