Verdure à tous les étages... Stockholm Municipal Building by Selgascano and Urban Design

Verdure à tous les étages... Stockholm Municipal Building by Selgascano and Urban Design | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Selgascano and Urban Design conceived the winning competition proposal for Tekniska Nämndhuset, a new Municipal Building in Stockholm, Sweden. The Madrid-based practice gently lifts the structure above the ground to offer a partially covered pedestrian plaza. Behind the building's soft, rounded edges are perimeter greenhouses filled with lush vegetation on every level which are visible through a translucent façade. The resulting impression is a contained bubble of green plants gently hovering along Sweden’s highway during all four seasons.Greenhouse terraces wrap each level to become activated social spaces for gardening and lounging. Enveloped with an interior glass wall, offices border the greenhouses to give employees a connection with living trees and shrubs no matter the season.Images Selgascano and Urban Design

BAMBOO architecture for dystopian times – Architecture Lab

BAMBOO architecture for dystopian times – Architecture Lab | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Conceptual artist Arne Quinze

designed a 15-story structure

named “Uchronia” at the Burning Man festival

in Black Rock City, Nev., in 2006.

The structure, which was quickly dubbed

“The Belgian Waffle,” was burned during the closing hours of the annual event.

A 60-foot-tall piece of scaffolding wouldn’t ordinarily draw much attention, but in the summer of 2010, more than a half-million people went to marvel at just such a thing: Doug and Mike Starn’s “Big Bambú: You Can’t, You Don’t, and You Won’t Stop.” Consisting of 7,000 bamboo poles continually hand-tethered by a crew of climbers into a humongous wave form, the temporary structure on the roof of New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art offered visitors a spectacular view overlooking Central Park. In a matter of weeks at the 2011 Venice Biennale, another version of Big Bambú spiraled up out of the water over the Grand Canal. At Rome’s MACRO in 2012, a third installation by the Starns spiraled to a vertiginous height of 130 feet and featured a double-helix staircase leading up to an auditorium that could accommodate 50 guests—suspending them high above the eternal city using nothing but sticks and rope.

A Concept Twin-Tower Skyscraper In Hong Kong

A Concept Twin-Tower Skyscraper In Hong Kong | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Mexican design firm Studio Cachoua Torres Camilletti has designed and developed an ambitious concept that reimagines skyscrapers. 

The concept skyscraper, which is meant to be located in Hong Kong, is 92-stories-high and consists of two parts—for housing and for commerce that are linked by bridges for vehicles to transport commuters around the building itself. 

Aside from its fascinating structure, the architects also have an unusual plan to install rice paddies on the roof of the commercial side of the skyscraper. Additionally, they also proposed to use nuclear energy to power the building. 

Office space, retail shops and lifestyle amenities will occupy most of the commerce area, making it extremely convenient for residents. 

One of the architects, Adrian Cachoua Oropeza explained that “the farming on the top of the building is an important symbolic gesture as well as an environmental one,” as rice is a staple in Asian countries. 

This idea was submitted for the 2014 World Architecture Festival

First JOB Hunt: Architecture students are constantly beset by questions concerning where they want to work | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Architecture students are constantly beset by questions concerning where they want to work, and for what type of firm – and these two questions often boil down to a decision concerning the size of the firm they want to work for. This article, originally posted on Arch Shortcuts thankfully makes this difficult choice a little easier.

[Indianapolis, USA] Parking Structure ART Facade / Urbana

[Indianapolis, USA] Parking Structure ART Facade / Urbana | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Architects: Urbana
Location: Sidney & Lois Eskenazi Hospital, 720 Eskenazi Avenue, Indianapolis, IN 46202, USA
Year: 2014
Photographs: Serge Hoeltschi


From the architect. This project began with an interest in challenging the typical notion of the parking structure as an unappreciated infrastructural typology by transforming the new Eskenazi Hospital parking structure into a binary, synthetic terrain. During the design process, an interest in camouflage evolved into an approach that would create a very large dynamic, interactive element for the City.  Rather than an actively kinetic approach, with all of the inevitable maintenance and longevity concerns that accompany those types of project, we were instead working towards an approach that capitalizes on the fact that most viewers would, themselves, be moving on bicycles or in automobiles.  Thus, the design ultimately became something that offers a degree a variability of color and form as one passes by the project.  The awareness of this, interestingly enough, occurs whether someone is directly watching or even just seeing it out of their periphery of vision

Singapour : Des architectes imaginent un projet "INCROYABLE" de tours flottantes d’agriculture | Lumières de la Ville

Singapour : Des architectes imaginent un projet "INCROYABLE" de tours flottantes d’agriculture | Lumières de la Ville | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Le laboratoire de JAPA, vient d’élaborer un concept révolutionnaire de tour urbaine. 


Celle-ci serait en réalité entièrement dédiée à l’agriculture mais serait surtout flottante, dans le but de contrecarrer le manque de terres cultivables dans certains pays. 


Contrer la hausse prévue de la demande alimentaire parallèlement à la croissance inexorable de la population totale de la planète, voici l’un des objectifs du projet extraordinaire mis au point par cette agence d’architectes au Singapour. L’idée étant à terme de développer une réelle autosuffisance des villes.


La disponibilité limitée des terres, la population en croissance rapide, les prix élevés du logement et le fait que les importations représentent 90% de l’approvisionnement alimentaire de Singapour sont autant de questions qui ont amené les architectes à proposer ce pays comme un lieu d’expérimentation de leur concept.


Les structures de ces tours en forme de boucles permettront de laisser passer un maximum de lumière afin de donner une réelle possibilité de croissance des cultures.

This Skyscraper Infographic Reveals the INSANE AMOUNT of Unoccupied Space in the World's Tallest Buildings | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Skyscrapers have long been a contest of sorts. Owners are secretive about the actual height of their buildings, so that others do not eclipse them before their time as tallest has come. The tricks that designers use to inflate tall buildings' heights are impressive, too. Spires and decorative elements are often used to get those last few precious feet.

12 Classic [Remment Lucas] Koolhaas QUOTES

12 Classic [Remment Lucas] Koolhaas QUOTES | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Pritzker-Prize Laureate Remment Lucas Koolhaas (you probably know him as ”Rem”) turns 68 today. The co-founder of one of the world’s most renowned architecture firms, OMA, and an urban-planner/philosopher whose theories have provoked admiration (and ire) for over thirty years, Koolhaas is undeniably one of a kind.


In honor of the occasion, today we’ll be bringing you all things Koolhaas: a fabulous article by former New York Times critic, Nicolai Ouroussoff, a Round-Up of all of OMA’s latest works, an original ArchDaily editorial, and this list of quotes from the architect himself – some poignant, all provocative (this is Koolhaas, after all). Such as this gem: “People can inhabit anything. And they can be miserable in anything and ecstatic in anything. More and more I think that architecture has nothing to do with it. Of course, that’s both liberating and alarming…”

["Ils sont fous ces Suédois"] Can Architect-Designed Insect Farms Solve World Hunger? | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

By 2050, it is estimated that the world’s population could reach up to 9 billion people. It’s already become increasingly difficult to sustain our food systems, as we outgrow our supply and continue to deplete farmland. So what is the answer to this frightening dilemma?

Belatchew Arkitekter came up with a shudder-worthy solution: bug farms.


The Swedish firm has designed an alternative to Stockholm’s protein production problem by developing a way to farm large quantities of edible protein within the city’s fabric. “Buzz Buildings,” named in part because of the insects that will call the donut-shaped structures home, are also inspired by the beautiful soundscape created by the thousands of crickets farmed there. In total, there will be nine round structures, skinned in a perforated steel exoskeleton, and located at nine different major intersections in the city. The buildings, 10,350 square meters of farmland, will ultimately be able to provide the projected 940,700 inhabitants of Stockholm by the year 2018, with plenty of bugs to sustain them.
