Crawford and Gray Architects are based in West London and I am impressed with their creativity and their ability to add just the right amount of architectural interest to a space. Whether classic, or modern and funky, they are spot on.

World’s FIRST 3D Printed Architectural Structure: Entirely composed of 3D printed plant based bio-plastic

World’s FIRST 3D Printed Architectural Structure: Entirely composed of 3D printed plant based bio-plastic | the switch corner | Scoop.it

Gualala, CA. Smith|Allen participated in the Project 387 Residency, located in Mendocino Country from August 4-18, 2013. In the heart of a 150-acre redwood forest, the collaborative duo created a site responsive, 3D printed architectural installation: Echoviren.

 

The project merges architecture, art and technology to explore the dialectic between man, machine and nature.

 

Spanning 10 x 10 x 8 feet, Echoviren is a translucent white enclosure, stark and artificial against the natural palette of reds and greens of the forest.
Walking around and within the structure, the viewer is immediately consumed by the juxtaposition, as well as uncanny similarity, of natural and unnatural: the large oculus, open floor, and porous surface framing the surrounding coastal landscape.

 

Echoviren is being fabricated, printed, and assembled on site by the designers. Through the use of architectural technologies and a battery of consumer grade Type A Machines desktop 3D printers, the duo will construct the world’s first 3D printed, full-scale architectural installation.

 

Entirely composed of 3D printed plant based bio-plastic, the constructed space will decompose naturally back into the forest in 30 to 50 years. A graft within the space of the forest, Echoviren is a space for contemplation of the landscape, of the natural, and our relationship with these constructs. It focuses on the essence of the forest not as a natural system, but as a palimpsest. The hybridized experience within the piece highlights the accumulated iterations of a site, hidden within contemporary landscapes. Echoviren exposes an ecosystem of dynamic natural and unnatural interventions: the interplay of man and nature moderated by technology over the centuries.

Fabrica

 

This unit is focused on the dual concepts of pre-fab and in-situ. It is our hope that through on-site construction, the architect's work will find resonance in this area and with citizens, so such interaction may enrich each other in a constant, dynamic process of mutual inspiration. The architects are Yong Ho Chang, Wang Shu, Michael Bell, URBANUS, Atelier Bow-Bow, Open Architecture, Atelier Deshaus, Johnston Marklee, Ensamble, Zeng Qun and Wang Fangji.

 

Mapping China: An Architecture Retrospective Since 2000
Curated by LI Xiangning

From the collectivism of the past to the "Chinese Speed" that caught the world's attention after post-Mao reforms, what lessons are to be learned from the explosive growth of China's cities and construction industry? Thought and practice in modern construction over the more than ten years since the new millennium dawned will be conveyed through evaluations of the past, documents and small-scale design, with an emphasis on academic presentation. The evaluations of Chinese contemporary construction and architects for the years from 2000 to 2013 will be led by construction pundits, including Li Xiangning, Shi Jian, Zhu Tao and Tang Keyang.

The Inspiring Artwork of Paper Engineer Matt Shlian

The Inspiring Artwork of Paper Engineer Matt Shlian | the switch corner | Scoop.it

Matt Shlian started school as a ceramicist… but it was only when he realized that he was “interested in everything” that his work really took off. 

 

He creates sculptural artworks from flat pieces of paper that show the incredible diversity of the medium while creating beautifully inspiring forms. They are also doing something rather surprising: inspiring scientists.

Along with a team at the University of Michigan he won the NSF (National Science Foundation) award on a nano-origami project that combines both art and engineering...

House D by HHF architekten

House D by HHF architekten | the switch corner | Scoop.it

Located in Nulgar, Switzerland, House D by HHF Architects has an oriention parallel to the landscape, making the view a matter of prime importance- aross more than 180 degrees, vistas include verdant land with mature fruit trees.


The design accentuates the site with a few simple moves: The main level is an open space – with the kitchen as well as dining and living areas – and alongside a concrete core, the stair to the upper and lower floors. The space is entirely glazed and blends seamlessly with the space outdoors. The outdoor space itself is an oversized terrace overlooking a pool. Because the terrain slopes downward slightly, the wood deck is elevated, which protects the main living space from the curious glances of passers-by.

Made in China: The Green FUTURISM of Architect Ma Yansong

Made in China: The Green FUTURISM of Architect Ma Yansong | the switch corner | Scoop.it

Chinese architect Ma Yansong has taken the West by storm with his organic, futuristic creations. With proposals to cover Tianenmen Square in thick forest and build a floating city over Ground Zero, no one can accuse him of playing it safe.

 

Over the last decade, avant-garde European architects have helped reshape Beijing's skyline. Rem Koolhaas and Ole Scheeren's surreal CCTV tower and the futuristic, glowing Olympic Stadium conceived by the Swiss studio Herzog and de Meuron are just two of these new iconic Western imports. But now, a Chinese architect is reversing the trend. Rising star Ma Yansong has won a string of European architectural contests that will bring his experimental designs, which meld cutting-edge technology with an animist's awe of nature, to capitals on the Continent.

 

In a contest staged by the city of Paris to design a housing complex on the right bank of the River Seine, Ma and his firm, MAD architects, faced off against 95 architects from around the world to seize one of the coveted positions. In Rome, he took first place in a competition to redesign a residence near the gardens and galleries of the Villa Borghese. With both projects set to be launched in 2014, Ma was then invited to outline a master plan for a massive 200,000-square-meter commercial and retail project in Amsterdam's Zuidas business district.
