Silicon Valley visual-computing pioneer Nvidia has joined the expanding list of tech moguls seeking to transform their work environment into the physical manifestation of their innovative business model. Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang has released the first schematic renderings – designed by Gensler - that depict a pair of 250,000 square foot triangular motherships centered around collaboration – a complete contrast to the typical, dated office building commonly found throughout Silicon Valley’s “oddly banal” landscape.

Study Finds 25% of UK Architecture Students Have Sought Treatment for MENTAL HEALTH Issues

Study Finds 25% of UK Architecture Students Have Sought Treatment for MENTAL HEALTH  Issues | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Are the rigors and tribulations of architecture school causing serious impacts on students' mental health? A new student survey conducted by Architect’s Journal has found that more than a quarter of architecture students in the UK are currently seeking or have sought medical help for mental health issues related to architecture school, and another 25% anticipate seeking help in the future.

The results have prompted Anthony Seldon, vice-chancellor at the University of Buckingham and a mental-health campaigner, to describe the situation as “a near epidemic of mental-health problems.”

In addition to mental health concerns, the report also brings to light growing problems with student debt, excess work hours and worry that education is not properly preparing students for the real world. Read the study in its entirety at Architect’s Journal here.

Interview: Smout Allen, senior lecturers at the Bartlett School of Architecture

Interview: Smout Allen, senior lecturers at the Bartlett School of Architecture | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Exploring the hidden meanings of landscapes by holding ‘a seance for a place’, Mark Smout and Laura Allen’s architectural speculations create a poetic ambiguity that subverts the conventions of drawing and modelling. Interview by Peter Cook and Will Hunter

Mark Smout and Laura Allen are senior lecturers at the Bartlett School of Architecture, where they run a diploma studio which frequently collaborates with BLDGBLOG’s Geoff Manaugh. The pair both studied and taught at the school while it was under the directorship of Peter Cook, who ushered in a new era at the Bartlett between 1990 and 2006. In many ways this continued the architectural speculation that Archigram − of which Cook was a founder member − popularised in the 1960s. Alongside Smout Allen, the culture of the school developed with units led by Nat Chard (who emigrated to Canada) and CJ Lim (still in residence), among many others. AR Deputy Editor Will Hunter also studied at the Bartlett while Peter Cook was head.

MVRDV introduces its new office in Rotterdam representing the company’s DNA and social focus

MVRDV introduces its new office in Rotterdam representing the company’s DNA and social focus | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
MVRDV has moved into the MVRDV House, their new offices in central Rotterdam, marking a new chapter for the expanding architectural practice. The new location, in the iconic post-war monument Het Industriegebouw, is situated in the heart of Rotterdam’s city centre and is moments away from the firm’s Markthal. The new office houses MVRDV’s now 140 Rotterdam-based staff members and offer new facilities which represent their DNA and social focus.

MVRDV’s 2400 m2 interior renovation for their new offices, with 150 work spaces, had at its core the idea to capture and enhance their DNA in what is now called the MVRDV House. The new space builds on the progress made in previous offices, learns from how the team inhabited and worked in the previous building and translated these into new, more accommodating and productive spaces.

UNESCO adds 17 Le Corbusier projects to World Heritage List

UNESCO adds 17 Le Corbusier projects to World Heritage List | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Heritage body UNESCO has added 17 projects by 20th-century French architect Le Corbusier to its list of internationally significant architecture sites, including the Unité d'Habitation housing in Marseille – arguably the most influential Brutalist building of all time (+ slideshow).

The 17 architectural sites that have been added to the World Heritage List are spread across seven countries. They were built over 50 years by the Swiss-born French architect, who has become one of the Modernist movement's most admired and controversial figures.

They include the Complexe du Capitole in Chandigarh, India, where Le Corbusier collaborated with his cousin and fellow architect and designer Pierre Jeanerret to build and furnish an entire government city.

Schumacher met Hadid in 1988 at a symposium at the Tate gallery in London to coincide with the New York Museum of Modern Art's Deconstructivist Architecture exhibition.

With no built projects, Hadid was building a reputation as a radical architect through her artwork. The huge paintings of her competition entry for The Peak Leisure Club in Hong Kong were included in the show, alongside projects by the likes of Frank Gehry, Rem Koolhaas, Daniel Libeskind and Bernard Tschumi.

BIG and Heatherwick's Futuristic Google HQ Back on the Table After Massive Land Deal with LinkedIn

BIG and Heatherwick's Futuristic Google HQ Back on the Table After Massive Land Deal with LinkedIn | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
The “Googleplex” is back on. After the Mountain View City Council announced last year that they would be awarding the majority of the land needed to construct the futurist masterplan designed for Google by BIG and Thomas Heatherwick to fellow tech giant LinkedIn, the future of the ambitious glass-canopied corporate campus seemed to be dead in the water, with the architects even releasing images of a pared down design that would occupy a much smaller footprint. But all of that has now changed thanks to a surprising property swap between the two companies that will see over three million square feet of real estate switch hands.

[INTERIORS] Mr. Robot: Interiors is an ONLINE film and architecture publication,

[INTERIORS] Mr. Robot: Interiors is an ONLINE film and architecture publication, | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Interiors is an online film and architecture publication, published by Mehruss Jon Ahi and Armen Karaoghlanian. Interiors runs an exclusive column for ArchDaily that analyzes and diagrams films in terms of space. Their Official Store will carry exclusive prints from these posts.

The visual medium of film has meant that style has always played a significant role in cinema. It’s one of the reasons why film and architecture have gone hand in hand for the past hundred years. In some sense, both mediums display complementary qualities; film as photography captures the structural aspects of architecture, while architectural design dictates cinematic space.

The same can’t be said for television – because even though television has undergone an aesthetic transformation in the past few years, with shows like The Sopranos, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, True Detective, and The Knick, it’s still very much a character-based medium. The format itself allows for the close examination of characters over the course of many hours.

10 CONTROVERSIAL NYC Historical Buildings That Were Demolished or Redeveloped

10 CONTROVERSIAL NYC Historical Buildings That Were Demolished or Redeveloped | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
A key catalyst to the formation of the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission was the demolition of the original Pennsylvania Station in 1963. The new body made it its mission to protect New York City’s architecturally, historically, and culturally significant buildings and sites by granting them landmark or historic district status, and regulating them once they were designated.

The past year has been a controversial one for landmarking, coincidentally on the 50th anniversary of the passing of the landmarks law, from a move to de-calendar landmarks to a bill that would have removed landmarks from consideration without being heard.

Looking back in history, here are ten controversial redeveloped landmark or historical buildings in New York City, as a reminder of the constant push and pull between landmarking and development.

These Are The 21 Architects You Will Meet in the Office

These Are The 21 Architects You Will Meet in the Office | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Architecture is a broad field of practice, an industry where individual personalities are embraced as intrinsically part of the job. We’re all architects and we all live for design but we’re quite a varied bunch. Here we’ve cheekily compiled a list of the 21 different architects you’ll meet at some point in your career.

The Stealth Fighter

This architect manages to fly under the radar, seemingly just zooming in and out of Revit all day. You wonder how he keeps his job…until one day he sweeps in from underneath you and gets the promotion.

The Entrepreneur

Architects often have to wear many hats in the office and this one is particularly good at wearing the accountant hat and would probably find this article useful. Thanks for keeping the numbers out of the red!

The Project Manager

There has to be someone keeping all the silly little designers on their toes and that is the Project Manager. Awesome at management, but many of these types seemingly can’t manage to design.

The Silent Struggler

Most architects probably fit into this category: you try to keep your cool in the office as you work at your desk but inside you’re cursing the 300 pieces that still need to be glued onto the presentation model for tomorrow’s meeting.

The Groundhog

The difference between the Silent Struggler and the Groundhog is that the latter is happy to be doing the work, never seeing the light of day. This architect lives to work and is probably the first to arrive in the office and the last to leave…does this guy live here or something

7 Ways to Use ANIMATED GIFs to Improve Your Project Presentation

7 Ways to Use ANIMATED GIFs to Improve Your Project Presentation | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Introducing movement to drawings and diagrams is an excellent way to show the development and progress of ideas fundamental to a project. Animated GIFs can therefore be a useful tool to improve your project presentation, explaining in a lean way a large amount of complex information.

When it comes to architectural drawings, it's fundamental to understand what information needs to be highlighted and what is the best way to show it, getting rid of all the extra data to focus attention on the main asset. With that in mind, here is a list of 7 different types of animated GIF that really show off the best of every project.

Museo de Pachacamac por Llosa Cortegana Arquitectos. Finalista de los MCHAP 2014/2015 | METALOCUS | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Tomando como protagonista el Santuario de Pachacamac, surge un proyecto que tanto tiene de arquitectura como de paisajismo. Resultado de un profundo estudio sobre el proceso de conformación tanto arquitectónico como espiritual de la preexistencia, Patricia Llosa y Rodolfo Cortegana nos proponen un edificio actual pero respetuoso con el entorno y la preexistencia.
El Museo de Pachacamac nace del territorio, de su topografía, ensalzando como máximo protagonista a las edificaciones prehispánicas con las que convive. Un espacio que, inspirado en la idea del peregrinaje permite al visitante fluir en ese todo conformado por la preexistencia, la nueva pieza y el paisaje. Es evidente en esta propuesta que Llosa Cortegana Arquitectos entienden al visitante como algo más que un mero observador, interactuando ya con la arquitectura en la construcción de una realidad que lo prepara para la experiencia del Santuario Pachacamac.

Shigeru Ban designs WOODEN tower for Vancouver

Shigeru Ban designs WOODEN tower for Vancouver | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Japanese architect Shigeru Ban has been commissioned to design a residential tower for Vancouver that its developers claim will be the tallest hybrid timber structure in the world.

Called Terrace House, the apartment tower is slated to rise near the waterfront in central Vancouver, where a curved apartment tower by architect Kengo Kuma is also being built.

Although information about the Ban-designed structure's height has not yet been disclosed, a rendering of the building shows a glass-clad tower with a sloped roof. Its upper portion will be formed by a timber frame supported by a concrete and steel core.

"The project will set the benchmark for the tallest hybrid timber structure in the world, in addition to being Shigeru Ban's tallest project to date and first-ever project in Canada," said the developer, PortLiving, which is due to release more details about the project later this year.

From Productivism to Scenography: The Relighting of Norman Foster's Hongkong and Shanghai Bank

From Productivism to Scenography: The Relighting of Norman Foster's Hongkong and Shanghai Bank | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Three decades ago the Hongkong and Shanghai Bank (HSBC) Headquarters by Norman Foster emerged onto the architectural seen as an exemplary product of industrial design. The open layout with its exposed steel structure generated a powerful corporate identity for the bank. But the restrained atmosphere of white architectural lighting and the lack of distinctive façade lighting has lost its attractiveness after sunset. Now the colorful and dynamic relighting presents a remarkable example of how an architectural icon has shifted from a productivist ideology towards a scenographic image. To the western observer the multicolored light language may give off a playful impression, but to the local culture the transformation evokes grandiosity.
