Manufacturing Gangnam Style - Manufacturing Innovation Blog | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it

Rethink Robotics, the firm that designed and manufactured Baxter the famous industrial robot, has met its match. Robotis’ Bioloid, an educational DIY robotics set, has developed a new, hipper cousin to Baxter that dances – Gangnam Style.  And no wonder. Baxter is a “serious robot” who has a job at Vanguard Plastics, a Connecticut manufacturer. He doesn’t have time to goof off.

University of Applied Sciences by BDG Architecten

University of Applied Sciences by BDG Architecten | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it

This building challenges the preconception of an exclusively formal climate for institutions of higher learning. Designed by BDG Architecten, the CAH University of Applied Sciences in Dronten (a school for agricultural studies) symbolizes a new educational vernacular.

In line with BDG’s programmatic doctrine, the overall design of the building is driven by a strong sustainable concept with the efficient use of sunlight, rainwater and clean air flow.
The solution was a 16-m-high greenhouse, inside which two buildings provide space for both people and plants. The greenhouse functions as a huge air duct, regulating ventilation through an integrated smart climate system. Passive cooling in the form of solar blinds and etched-glass panels prevents overheating in the summer. Rainwater is collected and reused to flush toilets and to clean the building.

The architects’ inside-outside juxtaposition of volumes. Composed of a skeleton of white steel trusses and modular glass panels, the outermost structure encompasses a pair of timber-clad buildings whose solidity cuts through the otherwise light-filled structure. The incorporation of vegetation at various places increases the flow of fresh air and further diminishes the sense of enclosure...

Montreal’s Biosphere Environmental Museum Resides Inside Massive Buckminster Fuller Geodesic Dome

Montreal’s Biosphere Environmental Museum Resides Inside Massive Buckminster Fuller Geodesic Dome | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it
Looking like Epcot Center in Disney World, Montreal’s Biosphere is a museum dedicated to the environment. Originally built as the United States pavilion for the 1967 World Fair Expo, the dome was repurposed into the museum in 1990.

The interactive museum initially showcased the water ecosystem of the Great Lakes region, but has since expanded to encompasses environmental issues such as climate change, air, eco-technologies and sustainable development.

The Phipps Conservatory & Center for Sustainable Landscapes

The Phipps Conservatory & Center for Sustainable Landscapes | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it
A Pittsburgh plant conservatory aims to be a pioneer in green building -- both inside and out.

The conservatory built a LEED silver-certified visitors center and a new tropical forest conservatory tricked out with "earth tubes" and "energy blankets" that help maintain equatorial temperatures through the depths of Steel City winters. Phipps, remembered fondly for its jungle-like interior by generations of school kids, also hosts all manner of conservation-oriented classes and conferences.

Phipps' latest project - the Center for Sustainable Landscapes, an educational center that should be finished in spring of 2012 - goes even further...

‘Mud Manifesto’ Offers Example of Sustainable Building | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it

Designed by students enrolled in Professor Syd Carpenter’s “The Container in Architecture” class at Swarthmore, the wall is an exploration into the uses of clay, sustainable design, and collaboration. Taking the properties of clay from a smaller object, like a mug or a vase, and trying to replicate those same properties in designing a larger structure was one of the core objectives for the six students studying under Carpenter.

Budapest Students Design Sustainable House for Indoor and Outdoor Living

Budapest Students Design Sustainable House for Indoor and Outdoor Living | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it

It may look unassuming, but this sleek black box is the culmination of a two-year long collaboration of more than 50 students from 7 different faculties of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics.


Initially envisioned by two architecture students and built for the European Solar Decathlon 2012 in Madrid, the goal of Odooproject was to encourage a new sustainable life by designing a house where as much time as possible can be spent outdoors.

Odoo’s square plan has two primary elements: the north half enclosure and the south half outdoor terrace, bordered by the ‘summer wall’ to the south. The design allows comfortable living inside or outside throughout the year as the seasons allow.

To provide a comfortable environment, as efficiently as possible, the house uses both active and passive systems. The compact form of Odoo reduces heat loss, while its organization means it has two south-facing facades. The glass façade exploits solar gain, to heat the interior during the winter, and the solar panels on the ‘summer wall’ generate power from the summer sun...

Crystal clear: the case for green building

Crystal clear: the case for green building | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it

Part office, part exhibition space, a new London landmark aims to challenge our assumptions about green design.

 

A new building in east London’s Royal Victoria Docks aims to change public perceptions of green architecture – while trialling some new sustainable technologies and approaches at scale. There’s not a green roof or thick insulated wall in sight. In fact, the structure, which is called the Crystal, is everything we’ve come to believe a sustainable building shouldn’t be: lightweight, angular, glazed from top to bottom and with a roof made out of steel.

Part office space, part interactive exhibition about the future of cities, the building is intended as a living experiment in sustainability that business leaders, politicians and the general public alike can learn from. “The building is a great demonstration of the ‘art of the possible’”, says Martin Hunt, Head of Networks and Partnerships at Forum for the Future. “It’s refreshing to see an interactive exhibition that visualises what our cities could be like – based on high quality research and thoughtful benchmarking. It brings the big issues of urban living – such as water and energy consumption, public health and safety – to life in a way that engages people and inspires them.”

Duane Craig's curator insight, January 7, 2013 7:13 AM

It's quite enlightening, as pointed out here, that a lot of glass used correctly can actually yield a zero energy building. But I agree that assessing the true sustainability of the building would have to factor in all the embodied fossil fuel and other energy used to make its components. And when you're talking about glass, that could be huge.

As they settle into their semester routines, University of Pennsylvania students may notice flora unexpectedly sprouting from the roof of longtime campus building Steinberg Hall–Dietrich Hall. This Wharton School of Business facility was the last commission of McKim, Mead & White, and the green roof belongs to a 1,300-square-foot rear entry pavilion just completed by Voith & Mactavish as part of a second major renovation. Although the Philadelphia-based architects’ limestone and mullion detailing caringly respects the original 1952 design, the green roof also represents a sustainable 21st-century perspective.
