Why office designers must view workers as consumers
Building Design
With this in mind we need to re-think office design, putting employees, or perhaps more accurately, consumers, at the heart of the workplace.

Tyrolean Festival Hall Reflects the Dramatic Landscape of the Austrian Alps

Tyrolean Festival Hall Reflects the Dramatic Landscape of the Austrian Alps | Sustainable Office and Public Spaces | Scoop.it

A concert hall carves its own niche in the Austrian Alps while bowing to the neighboring midcentury playhouse and the breathtaking landscape.

In the picturesque Austrian village of Erl, where the rugged Alps descend to meet the undulating valley below, a striking, angular structure, the Tyrolean Festspielhaus, or Festival Hall, pierces the landscape that inspired it. “We conceived of the building as tectonic plates shifting over one another,” says Sebastian Brunke, a project architect from the Viennese firm Delugan Meissl Associated Architects. “The opening between the two plates forms the foyer, which glows at night and through which the Alpine landscape flows like a carpet.” Reflecting the mountains above, the upper volume's sharply pointed cantilever juts out almost 100 feet.

Me gustaría asistir a algún concierto allí.

Como gesto arquitectónico, me parece de una fuerza increíble. Además encaja perfectamente posándose en el paisaje e integrándose en él. Arquitectura o escultura?

Second Life: Using Recycled Materials For Architecture

Second Life: Using Recycled Materials For Architecture | Sustainable Office and Public Spaces | Scoop.it
Using salvaged stuff not only has a positive environmental impact by reducing waste, it also offers architects materials typically unavailable.

According to the National Association of Homebuilders, “If all the lumber used to build the 1.2 million new homes constructed in the U.S. each year were laid end to end, it would extend 2 million miles—a sobering statistic.

Dutifully sorting waste, separating the metal and plastic from the paper for different recycling streams is part of modern life. Some areas even have food waste collection for community compost.

Architects and designers are taking notice of the opportunities offered by recycling and reuse. Using salvaged materials not only has a positive environmental impact by reducing waste, it also offers architects materials typically unavailable, such as old growth lumber.

Visit the link for some prescient products and projects using recycled materials for architectural purposes.

I love this look of this building! It looks so organic and natural

Catherine Devin's curator insight, September 27, 2013 5:41 AM

La démarche requiert une structuration des filières de tri, collecte et recyclage sur les matériaux clefs, à une échelle industrielle et régionale si l'on veut généraliser l'emploi des matériaux recyclés et avoir un impact positif significatif sur plusieurs critères de développement durable qu'on pourrait associer au projet.

Daniel LaLiberte's curator insight, September 28, 2013 4:07 PM

We need to find uses for 100% of our "waste" and resources that end up in architectural structures will tend to stick around longer before being recycled yet again.

... two worlds need to come together: the world of design, in which architects, planners and their colleagues create places; and the world of health, in which doctors, public-health officials and their colleagues fight injury, illness and disability. Together, these two groups can create great habitats in which people of all ages thrive.
