Missed Opportunities: Berlin's Architectural Wasteland - SPIEGEL ONLINE

Missed Opportunities: Berlin's Architectural Wasteland - SPIEGEL ONLINE | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Klaus Wowereit, Berlin's mayor since 2001, has watched his city become one of world's coolest artistic meccas. But under his guidance, the city has devolved into a backward-looking architectural wasteland in which urban planning only favors the rich.

 

In an era when other cities have been zapping themselves awake with shock architecture, Berlin has been dreaming of rebuilding the old Baroque city palace and embracing a retro architecture vaguely evocative of the imperial era under the Kaiser. This anti-modern, indifferent view of aesthetics has ruled the day. Nevertheless, the city has become a mecca for several generations of artists, nightlife revelers and optimists from around the world.

 

Indeed, it's a paradox: Berlin, which is internationally recognized as one of the hottest cities of the 21st century, remains intellectually and architecturally waist-deep in the 19th century.

This contradiction has given rise to a new era that is the direct result of Wowereit's policies during his nearly 12 years at the helm of the city -- an era that has been dominated by key questions about the future of the city, yet without any concrete answers from the mayor's office.

The Anti-tuberculosis Dispensary by Ignazio Gardella (1934-38)

The Anti-tuberculosis Dispensary by Ignazio Gardella (1934-38) | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

The “Dispensatorio antitubercolare” (Anti-tuberculosis Dispensary) in Alessandria, Italy is one of the early works of Ignazio Gardella,  and was designed and built between 1934 and 1938. The architect, in collaboration with Martini, had already built the nearby “Antitubercular Sanatory” and was now charged to provide a new structure which would integrate the areas for the information and prevention about the disease and the areas for outpatient cures.


The building would not have to look like a hospital, but appear comfortable and opened toward the public: Gardella was asked to interpret a type, the dispensary, which was current in Italy among the two wars, a place where patients would not have to be treated, but rather diagnosed for treatment in a more suitable setting. The dispensaries, along with the the Case del Fascio, the Opera Nazionale Maternità e Infanzia (ONMI), the local branches of the Gioventù Italiana del Littorio (GIL), were among the new building types that the fascist government intended to propose as innovative design representing the regime and its system of services spread across the Italian territory.

Exhibition 3D paperArt: Packed pavilion - YouTube

Packed pavilion takes CAAD drawing to its limits at the exhibition 3D paperArt, part of the final leg of the Shanghai World Expo.

A number of students (Min Chieh Chen, Dominik Zausinger and Michele Leidi) from the Computer Aided Architectural Design Master's course at the ETH in Switzerland have devised a cardboard pavilion with the help of computer technology. The pavilion is situated outside the Shanghai Museum of Arts and Crafts as part of the exhibition 3D paperArt at the World Expo.

The structure features a number of variable truncated cones made from corrugated cardboard, which were glued together and fastened with tie wraps. The 409 cones that make up the pavilion each have a different size, fitting together like a puzzle to form a network of circles.

The overall goal of the pavilion is to demonstrate how architects can use CAAD to customize the design process. Here, each step was optimized by selfmade computers, from design to production, packing and shipping.

Prisons and Human Rights Violations: What Can Architects Do?

Prisons and Human Rights Violations: What Can Architects Do? | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Originally published by the Architectural Review as “Discipline and Punish: the Architecture of Human Rights“, this article by the founder of Architects Designers and Planners for Social Responsibility Raphael Sperry outlines how prison design in the US and elsewhere is violating fundamental human rights, and how some architects have come to be complicit in these designs.


We think of architectural regulations as being there to ensure that buildings are safe for the public. But what if a building’s harm is not caused by unexpected structural failure but by the building performing exactly as intended? Can a building designed to facilitate human rights violations amount to a violation in itself? And what is the responsibility of the architects involved? These are the questions at the centre of the current debate in America around the architectural profession’s involvement in prison design.

Arquitectos(as) y nuestro derecho al FRACASO | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Con o sin crisis, la pregunta es inevitable para los arquitectos: “Y después del título, ¿ahora qué?”. Dominado por esa duda existencial, hace dos años el recién titulado arquitecto español Pedro Hernández resumió el futuro de sus colegas en tres posibilidades: becarse, emigrar a otras burbujas inmobiliarias o reinventarse. Y a miles de kilómetros en el hemisferio sur, la polifacética arquitecta chilena, Valentina Rozas, confesaba en una entrevista que “hay cosas que me interesan, voy a ellas y no funcionan. Es parte de las oportunidades que tengo ahora de poder fracasar. Creo que hay que darse espacio para poder fracasar o renunciar”.

[Jeongok-ri, South Korea ]Jeongok Prehistory Museum - Hackenbroich Architekten

[Jeongok-ri, South Korea ]Jeongok Prehistory Museum - Hackenbroich Architekten | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

The Jeongok Prehistory Museum is located in the Hantan River Park. With the discovery of the Aecheulian Hand Axe, the neighbored excavation site is considered as one of the most important Palaeolithic sites in world archaeology. Besides the presentation of artefacts the museum should give an insight to the excavation work and be an entrance to the landscape of the river Hantan. The site is located on a slope and connects the park at the river with the excavation site. The idea is to extrapolate the existing landscape with a building that intensifies the landscape instead of reshaping it.


By the manipulation of the gentle slope a path through the museum is created. It connects all public areas such as ticket of fice, exhibition, museum shop, lecture hall, café and restaurant. The actual exhibition space is at the level of the entrance and continues into the hill to descend the visitors into the historic layers of the excavation hill. The exhibition space embedded in the ground, provides the spatial experience of the excavation pits. The most visible and iconographic element of the museum is the roof. Its volumetric structure of sections spans over all museum areas. The roof is shaped by the lateral forces which determine the dif ferent heights of the sections. The sections itself are interconnected with a system of steel beams and cables, so the roof structure appears massive and very light at the same time.

Mies, the Modernist Man of Letters

Mies, the Modernist Man of Letters | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Mies van der Rohe with smoke, 1957; photographed for Life magazine. Image Courtesy of Frank Scherschel/Time & Life Pictures/Getty Images This review


This review of Detlef Mertins’ book “Mies” – by Thomas de Monchaux - originally appeared in Metropolis Magazine as “Mies Reconsidered“. According to de Monchaux, Mertins reveals the modernist master as a voracious reader who interpreted a wide variety of influences to arrive at his stripped-down style.

The quintessential page of the 528 that make up Detlef Mertins’s monumental new monograph on Ludwig Mies van der Rohe—entitled simply Mies (Phaidon, 2014)—is 155. There, you will find a reproduction, a page within a page, of page 64 of Romano Guardini’s 1927 book Letters from Lake Como—a book about modernity and human subjectivity—with Mies’s own annotations penciled in the margins, in a surprisingly ornate and delicate hand. 

And there, you will find Mertins’s notes on Mies’s notes on Guardini: “Of all the books in Mies’s library, Guardini’s Letters is the most heavily marked. Mies highlighted passage after passage with bold and rapid margin strokes and wrote key words diagonally and in large script across the first pages of many of the chapters: Haltung (stance), Erkenntnis (knowledge), Macht (power).” Mertins’s vivid marginality, his attention to the divine details along edges, recalls the experience of reading the Talmud, that commentary on Jewish law and scripture in which, by marking and emending earlier readers’ marks and emendations, generations of rabbis enacted an intimate conversation across time and space.

The DEPRECIATING Value of Form in the Age of Digital Fabrication

The DEPRECIATING Value of Form in the Age of Digital Fabrication | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

In this article, originally appearing on the Australian Design Review as “Tolerance and Customisation: a Question of Value“, Michael Parsons argues that the complex forms made possible by digital fabrication may soon be victims of their own popularity, losing their intrinsic value as they become more common and the skill required to make them decreases.


The idea of tolerance in architecture has become a popular point of discussion due to the recent mainstreaming of digital fabrication. The improvements in digital fabrication methods are allowing for two major advancements: firstly, the idea of reducing the tolerance required in construction to a minimum (and ultimately zero) and secondly, mass customisation as a physical reality. Digital fabrication has made the broad-brushstroke approach to fabrication tolerance obsolete and now allows for unique elements and tolerance specific to each element. The accuracy that digital fabrication affords the designer, allows for the creation of more complex forms with greater ease and control. So far, this has had great and far reaching implications for design.

The world's FIRST net-zero energy skyscraper rises in Indonesia

The world's FIRST net-zero energy skyscraper rises in Indonesia | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
The Pertamina Energy Tower's curved façade is precisely calibrated for Jakarta's proximity to the equator to mitigate solar heat gain year-round.


The world's first net-zero energy skyscraper soon will grace the center of Jakarta, Indonesia — the Pertamina Energy Tower. When it's finished in 2019, it will be 99 stories high and serve as the headquarters of the national energy company. In addition to the 20,000 people who will work there, it will be the centerpiece of a campus that has a mosque, a sports center and a 2,000-seat auditorium for the performing arts.

Shaped like a funnel, the top of the tower opens at the top, capturing wind and sucking it inside to run a series of vertical wind turbines that provide 25 percent of the building's electricity.

The building is designed to be a symbol of Indonesia's commitment to sustainable development. Find more details at the link.

Lola Ripollés's curator insight, April 12, 12:50 AM

The volume consists of two bodies joined by a bridge-library that spans a height difference of 85 cm, joining the public areas with the private spaces and generating a mezzanine 3.75 m high in the back space of the gallery. Since the site is elongated, the public spaces are laid out towards the main facade, articulating random terraces on the front volume, generating corners that reinforce the relationship with the landscape.
