Solhuset Climate-Friendly Nursery by Christensen & Co. Architects

Solhuset Climate-Friendly Nursery by Christensen & Co. Architects | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it
Designed by Christensen & Co. Architects for kindergarten age and younger, this solar-powered, net-positive energy building is sited on a triangular lot in Copenhagen's bedroom community of Hoersholm.

The roof's design was ideal for mounting the photovoltaic and solar thermal panels, which are positioned to capture the most light possible. With 2,691 square feet of PV panels, "the building produces 0.75 kWh per square foot more than it consumes each year," according to Treldal, exporting energy during the eight months of the year with the most sunlight, and importing it during the four months of shorter days. A green roof of sedum is interspersed among the panels, cooling the building, the panels, and controlling storm-water runoff. High-performance wood, compressed to ensure hardness, clads the exterior...

Casey Key Guest House by TOTeMS Architecture

Casey Key Guest House by TOTeMS Architecture | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it

The guest residence, located on a barrier island, is set within a mature oak hammock along Sarasota Bay. The structure is inspired by the character of the live oaks, which have been shaped by the prevailing coastal winds from the west.

The Owner requested a design that was a “house in the trees”. A small program, including one bedroom, bath, living area with kitchenette, and a loft is organized to provide privacy between a neighboring property to the north, while offering broad views of the oak hammock to the south and west, and the intercoastal waterway to the east.

Curved glulam pine beams, which are anchored to the elevated concrete slab at their base, curve up and over the entire space, reflect the arching quality of the live oak limbs. Ship lap cypress siding is used to clad the exterior walls and the interior walls between the glulam beams.

The design is intended to evoke an organic architecture that is influenced by, and reflective of its site...

Why Open BIM?

Open BIM is a universal approach to the collaborative design, realization and operation of buildings based on open standards and workflows. Open BIM is an initiative of buildingSMART and several leading software vendors using the open buildingSMART Data Model.

Why is it important?

Open BIM supports a transparent, open workflow, allowing project members to participate regardless of the software tools they use.

Open BIM creates a common language for widely referenced processes, allowing industry and government to procure projects with transparent commercial engagement, comparable service evaluation and assured data quality.

Open BIM provides enduring project data for use throughout the asset life--cycle, avoiding multiple input of the same data and consequential errors.

Small and large (platform) software vendors can participate and compete on system independent, 'best of breed' solutions.

Open BIM energizes the online product supply side with more exact user demand searches and delivers the product data directly into the BIM.

DARPA Robot Masters Stairs

This video shows versions of DARPA and Boston Dynamics robots climbing stairs, walking on a treadmill and doing pushups.

A modified platform resembling these robots is expected to be used as government-funded equipment (GFE) for performers in Tracks B and C of the DARPA Robotics Challenge (http://www.darpa.mil/NewsEvents/Releases/2012/04/10.aspx). The GFE Platform is expected to have two arms, two legs, a torso and a head, and will be physically capable of performing all of the tasks required for the disaster response scenarios scheduled in the Challenge. However, despite the appearance of the robots in the video, the Challenge is decidedly not exclusive to humanoid robot solutions. Any designs are welcome provided they are compatible with shared human-robot environments, compatible with human tools, and compatible with human operators so that a human without expertise in robotics can give commands and confidently anticipate the response.

It is DARPA's position that achieving true innovation in robotics, and thus success in the Robotics Challenge, will require contributions from communities beyond traditional robotics developers. Hardware, software, modeling and gaming developers are sought to link with emergency response and various science communities to devise novel solutions that enable robots to respond to disasters according to the tasks laid out in DARPA's announcement (http://go.usa.gov/mVj) for the Challenge.
