Autodesk lanza AutoCAD 2015 para Mac | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Esta semana Autodesk lanzó la última versión de AutoCAD para Mac (2015), que ofrece una serie de cambios que buscan aportar nuevas mejorías en la interfase y el software de diseño, sin sacrificar la funcionalidad, clave para la comodidad del trabajo cotidiano de las personas. Según Amy Bunszel, vicepresidenta de AutoCAD, "esta versión tiene algunas características nuevas y enriquecidas, pero en el fondo, se trata de eliminar los callejones sin salida que impiden que las personas sean todo lo eficaces que pueden ser al trabajar juntos en proyectos de diseño". Por ejemplo, los usuarios pueden compartir también  su trabajo con colegas que utilizan versiones Windows del software en colaboración ininterrumpida.

Why China’s President Says “NO MORE Weird Buildings”

Why China’s President Says “NO MORE Weird Buildings” | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

The President of the People’s Republic of China, Xi Jinping, has reportedly called for a end to the “weird buildings” being built in China, and particularly in the nation’s capital, Beijing. In a two hour speech at a literary symposium in Beijing last week, Mr Xi expressed his views that art should serve the people and be morally inspiring, identifying architectural projects such as OMA’s CCTV Headquarters as the kind of building that should no longer be constructed in Beijing.


With China’s construction boom being one of the most talked about features of today’s architecture scene – and many a Western practice relying on their extravagant projects to prop up their studios – the Chinese leader’s comments have the potential to affect the landscape of architectural practice worldwide. But what is behind these sentiments? Read on after the break to find out.

[Geometric architecture] Alexander Hahn: 199 Visible Oranges

[Geometric architecture] Alexander Hahn: 199 Visible Oranges | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Let’s start with a piece of fiction. The setting is the crowded Mercat de la Boqueira in Barcelona, by reputation one of the best fresh food markets in Europe. Scores of fruit vendors display varieties of apples, pears, peaches, plums, apricots, cherries and oranges in but the few square meters of area that each has available. In competition with each other, they vie for the attention of housewives and tourists who press ahead from stall to stall. One of the merchants has arranged his Valencia oranges...


The story of the oranges provides a sense of what Mathematical Excursions to the World’s Great Buildings is all about. Of course, the setting of its narrative is not a fruit market and the subject is not a pyramid of oranges. Rather, it is a carefully selected flow of some of the great buildings of the world and the subject is the analysis of their most prominent features: their beams, arches, vaults and domes. By analogy with the example of the pyramid, the numerical, geometric and analytic information that the mathematics adds is essential to the understanding of the architecture of these structures. It provides insights that verbal descriptions or even sets of images cannot convey. The Mathematical Excursions discusses the pyramids of Egypt, the Parthenon in Athens, the Colosseum and Pantheon in Rome, the Hagia Sophia, historic mosques, great Romanesque, Gothic, and Renaissance cathedrals, some of Palladio’s villas, the US Capitol, and three icons of the 20th century: the Sydney Opera House, Gateway Arch in St. Louis and the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao.

A great LITERARY architecture project by Katherine Treppendahl based on J. Joyce's Ulysses

A great LITERARY architecture project by Katherine Treppendahl based on J. Joyce's Ulysses | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

This model represents my interpretation of the structural relationships within James Joyce’s Ulysses. While the novel occurs over the course of just one day, the text is lengthy, rich and exhaustive. The central story is that of salesman wandering Dublin. But revolving around and within that story are thousands of others– both internal stories developed within the novel and allusions to stories external to the text. The primary external text is, of course, Homer’s Odyssey, and the chapters  and characters in Joyce’s novel reflect scenes and characters from Homer’s story. I developed an architectural language for translating multiple aspects of the structure of the novel. This language takes into account the progression from realism to abstraction in the text, the shifting roles of and intersections between key characters, the passage of time, the interior stylistic parallels, and the reader’s journey through the text.

[Panama City, Panama ] Biomuseo | Gehry Partners |  Building Types Study | Architectural Record | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Panamania: A museum becomes an instant icon for a developing nation while upping the ante for design excellence
Years before Frank Gehry’s dazzling Biomuseo completed construction in Panama City, its memorable form—a collision of riotously colored folded metal canopies—became a hopeful emblem of the developing country’s arrival on the world stage. Ubiquitous in travel promotions and even emblazoned on the side of some of Copa Airlines’ fleet, the building was pegged to become a symbol of national pride. But as construction of the 44,000-square-foot project dragged on over a decade—while countless slapdash commercial towers sprouted up, changing the urban landscape with shocking speed—many locals have looked on with detached bemusement. “They call it the museum that never ends [que nunca termina],” a cabdriver said, laughing on a recent ride out to the building, located dramatically along the Amador Causeway at the Pacific entry to the Canal.

[Fucking A] Frank Gehry Claims Today’s Architecture is (Mostly) “Pure Shit”

[Fucking A] Frank Gehry Claims Today’s Architecture is (Mostly) “Pure Shit” | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

“Let me tell you one thing. In this world we are living in, 98 percent of everything that is built and designed today is pure shit. There’s no sense of design, no respect for humanity or for anything else. They are damn buildings and that’s it. 

“Once in a while, however, there’s a small group of people who does something special. Very few. But good god, leave us alone! We are dedicated to our work. I don’t ask for work. I don’t have a publicist. I’m not waiting for anyone to call me. I work with clients who respect the art of architecture. Therefore, please don’t ask questions as stupid as that one.”

London's Newest Building Seems to Be Floating Away

London's Newest Building Seems to Be Floating Away | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
This architectural magic trick would make David Copperfield proud.


Imagine removing what you think is the losing block in a Jenga game, only to have the top of the tower remain hovering in the air. That's the illusion artistAlex Chinneck has accomplished with this London building, whose upper half seems to have broken from its mooring bricks to float away into the sky.


The gravity-defying structure, which went up last week in Covent Garden, is the latest architectural oddity from the 30-year-old Chinneck; he's also made anupside-down townhouse and a facade that's sliding onto the street. For the levitating building, titled "Take My Lightning But Don’t Steal My Thunder," the artist's team toiled to re-create the area's 184-year-old stone edifices with lightweight foam blocks. They then spent four days assembling the installation, at one point slipping in a hidden mechanism that achieves the semblance of weightlessness. (See if you can spot it in the below time-lapse video.)

How ‘Vandalizing’ a Classic Exposes the HYPOCRISY of Today’s Modernists

How ‘Vandalizing’ a Classic Exposes the HYPOCRISY of Today’s Modernists | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

These images from artist Xavier Delory show Le Corbusier’s celebrated Villa Sovoye in a shocking state of disrepair. With stones and spray paint, vandals have tragically defaced its pristine walls and windows. Don’t panic: the images shown here are photoshopped. But what if they weren’t? In this article originally published by Metropolis Magazine as “Modernism in Ruins: Artist “Vandalizes” a Le Corbusier Masterpiece,” AJ Artemel explores how our shock and dismay at such images exposes an underlying hypocrisy in our reverence for famous modernist works, and proposes that perhaps Modernism and vandalism are more closely related than we thought.

[Seoul, South Korea] Songpa Micro Housing | SsD | Building Types Study | Architectural Record | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Living Small In The Big City: Adapting to a changing program, an inventive project in Seoul mixes micro and small apartments with arts-focused functions.

Although they used repetitive units and simple construction in their Songpa Micro Housing in Seoul, Jinhee Park and John Hong of Single Speed Design (SsD) brought variety and style to the 5,500-square-foot project by animating the spaces in between and around the tiny apartments. Wrapped within a striking container of stainless-steel louvers and enhanced with outdoor and shared spaces, the eight residences subvert the monotonous forms of most micro housing. By design—and ultimately by the client's changes to that design—the project shows that this building type can play a flexible role in a city's mix of housing.
