[Lima-Peru] University Campus UTEC Lima - Grafton Architects

[Lima-Peru] University Campus UTEC Lima  - Grafton Architects | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Man-Made Cliff
The unique condition of Lima and its relationship to the Pacific, with cliffs defining the boundary between the city and the sea, was a starting point in the conception of this project.

A green valley connecte the site with the sea. The UTEC campus project is conceived as a ‘new cliff’, continuing the sea edge, clearly stating and defining the University on its new ground.
The northern boundary of the site contains a busy road network. We see this northern boundary as the main façade of the project, visible from passing traffic and it is the register of the new campus in the public mind. We have positioned the special rooms of the University: the auditorium, the conference rooms, the theatre / movie venue, at the base of the ‘cliff ’ face, marking the northern boundary to the highway, encouraging cultural interaction with the wider public.

A Japanese Constellation: Toyo Ito, SANAA, and Beyond, at MoMA | Metalocus

A Japanese Constellation: Toyo Ito, SANAA, and Beyond, at MoMA | Metalocus | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
The Museum of Modern Art announces A Japanese Constellation: Toyo Ito, SANAA, and Beyond, an exhibition focused on the work of architects and designers orbiting Pritzker Prize winners Toyo Ito and SANAA, on view from March 13 to July 4, 2016.
Providing an overview of Ito's career and his influence as a mentor to a new generation of Japanese architects, the exhibition offers a retrospective of recent works by three generations of internationally acclaimed designers, including Kazuyo Sejima, Ryue Nishizawa, Sou Fujimoto, Akihisa Hirata, and Junya Ishigami. Displaying models, drawings, and images of more than 40 architectural designs, the exhibition highlights the renewed prominence and innovation of contemporary architecture from Japan since the 1990s.

A Japanese Constellation presents a survey of architectural production since 2000, and reveals a network of influence and cross-pollination that has become particularly relevant at the start of the 21st century. Departing from one of Ito's pivotal works, the Sendai Mediatheque, completed in 2001 (and part of MoMA's collection), as well as SANAA's 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, the exhibition is organized through intersecting spaces separated by translucent curtains on which multimedia presentations are projected. This layout echoes the different connections and levels of influence among the selected architects.

With its idea of a network of luminaries at work, A Japanese Constellation is intended as a reflection on the transmission of an architectural sensibility, and suggests an alternative model to w...

Santiago Calatrava's World Trade Center transit terminal: converting tourists into consumers.

Santiago Calatrava's World Trade Center transit terminal: converting tourists into consumers. | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

On a recent Sunday afternoon children sprawled on the gleaming white marble floor beneath the oculus in Santiago Calatrava's new transit and retail hub at the World Trade Center site. Young couples Instagrammed the white ribbed ceiling with light streaming through a strip of skylights. People hung out and marvelled at the space, a photo-worthy hall that at this moment serves no purpose at all. It was a rare moment in an un-programmed, un-planned, free space in a relentlessly commercial city increasingly defined by exclusion and surveillance.

 

Though on that day the hall resembled a public space, few will mistake it for one in the future. Referred to as the transit hub, Calatrava's largely underground building is, in fact, a vast shopping mall that happens to connect to a few commuter rail and subway lines. The signature oculus is actually an atrium that brings natural light — dramatically, even beautifully – into a two-storey shopping arcade that rings the space.

 

Early on, Calatrava hoped this space would bring light down to the train platforms running under the site. In the reality, the oculus serves as a magnet to pull in throngs of tourists from the plaza level below ground.

 

The all-white structure is dwarfed by the towers that surround it

Above ground, the all-white structure is dwarfed by the towers that surround it, including SOM's One World Trade, Rogers Stirk Harbour's Three World Trade, currently under construction, and Fumihiko Maki's tower Four. BIG's (or possibly Foster's) tower Two, for now, exists only on the boards. Calatrava gave his small peaked building greater presence with asymmetrical tines that crisscross over the skylights.

 

The relatively small number of riders exiting the platforms half a city block underground from the oculus/shopping atrium, which the Port Authority claims to be about 50,000 per day, are not enough to support all the retail space eventually planned for the site: 34,800 square metres. Revealingly, the Port Authority, the bi-state agency that built the complex, refers to the oculus at the Transportation & Retail Hub on its website for potential tenants.

This is where Calatrava's architectural theatrics do their real work. The thousands of New Jersey commuters are easily matched by the throngs of visitors milling around above ground who are there to see the 9/11 memorial and the country's tallest building, One World Trade. So Calatrava's task is to draw as many of those people down to the shopping concourses below as possible, converting tourists into consumers.

This 3D Model Shows the DAMAGE Caused by ISIS to Palmyra's Temple of Bel

This 3D Model Shows the DAMAGE Caused by ISIS to Palmyra's Temple of Bel | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
In August of last year, many of the most precious landmarks of the ancient city of Palmyra were damaged or destroyed by the forces of ISIS in a violent, iconoclastic attempt to send a message to the rest of the world. Since the UNESCO World Heritage Site was recaptured in March, the question in the architectural preservation community has been how to rebuild and preserve the buildings. That process will begin, of course, with a thorough assessment of the damage.

Shortly after Palmyra was recaptured Iconem, a French company which specializes in the digitization of archeological sites, arrived in Palmyra to lead the survey. In partnership with the Syrian DGAM (Direction Générale des Antiquités et des Musées), Iconem was granted access to the city to survey the damage to the temples of Bel and Baalshamin, the Monumental Arch, the Valley of Tombs, and the museum—all sites which are of the most cultural value and therefore were the greatest targets of ISIS's violence.

A Selection of Paul Rudolph’s Perspective Sections – – SOCKS

A Selection of Paul Rudolph’s Perspective Sections – – SOCKS | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
As stated in Adrian Forty‘s “Concrete and Culture” (a very recommended read), architect Paul Rudolph‘s reliance on pen-and-ink rendering came from his avoidance of models during the development of his design, because, he wrote: “the model cannot readily indicate details or materials“. On the contrary, the renderings better conveyed the substance of his buildings.

A virtuose in draughtsmanship, Rudolph was particularly notable for his perspective section renderings, way before Japanese Atelier Bow Wow came back to such a dated-pre-computer representation technique for its practice.

A fascinating, albeit romantic insight on Rudolph’s design process is given in a paper by Laurence Scarpa (“Paul Rudolph: Metaphors, Paradoxes, Contradictions and Abstractions“, Yale 2009):

Everything he did was an obsessive open-ended exploration. Rudolph explained this process: “Before making any sketches I will really think about it a great, great, deal and, finally, I will resolve that into essentially three or maybe four—it depends on the project—schemes.” Rudolph had the ability to work with multiple ideas simultaneously. These explorations resulted in extraordinary discoveries. This insight allowed him both the freedom to explore and to problem solve without being encumbered by either. Rudolph would say to me, “Buildings do not happen, they must be made to happen.” While working at his desk, he would move his hand over his drawing in such a way that he could better understand the actual scale and what it might be like to occupy the drawing, as if it were an actual building. He seemed as though he was actually inside the drawing. He would touch with his eyes and see with his hands. He always included human figures in his drawing, particularly in section and elevation drawings, to further understand how the scale of the space related to an actual person. For Rudolph the drawing was a building at full scale. This concept was the origin of his creative process.

 

For further insight on Rudolph’s design process, teaching, and the relationship between drawing and building materiality, read “Rendering the Surface: Paul Rudolph’s Art and Architecture Building at Yale” (2000) by  Timothy M. Rohan, probably the most important living Rudolph’s scholar and advocate (author of “The Architecture of Paul Rudolph” Yale University Press, 2014)

[CAD Drinks, of course] The ARCHITECTURE of Happy Hour: Plotted, Not Stirred | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Frank Gehry, Daniel Libeskind, and Rem Koolhaas walk into a bar. What do they order? CAD Drinks, of course. It's a Singapore Sling like you have never seen before: drawn to scale, in elevation, and divided meticulously by content - ice cubes and orange slice included. Alcoholic drinks are colour coded, inventoried, organized and rendered in this downloadable DWG for Autocad. Architects rejoice: happy hour is that much closer to lunch hour.

Created by Autodesk Technologist Shaan Hurley, CAD Drinks are a playful twist on typical Autocad drawing tools. Row upon row of drinks are translated into drawings suited to the architect's brain, complete with instructions for preparation and consumption. The project has been immensely popular: Hurley has since released Whisky Drinks for Autocad and CAD Drinks for Engineers. According to Hurley, "this is a classic to enjoy plotted, not stirred."

How Architecture Is Born: 7 Flowing Scribbles by Frank O. Gehry and the Buildings They Inspired

How Architecture Is Born: 7 Flowing Scribbles by Frank O. Gehry and the Buildings They Inspired | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

“Frank still doesn’t know how to use a computer, I mean, except to throw it at somebody.”

 

The above quote — taken from the transcript of Sydney Pollack’s film “The Sketches of Frank Gehry,” released 10 years ago today — encapsulates the dry sense of humor pervading this legendary architect’s studio. Of course, Timothy Paulson’s comment was knowingly facetious — the 87-year-old Pritzker Prize winner has been utilizing computer-based technology for years with the help of a talented engineering team, even starting a spin-off company to advance BIM design software for the whole profession.

 

The desire to further these technologies stems from Gehry’s perpetual experiments with curvaceous, fragmented volumes, now famous around the world for their theatrical fluidity. However, before the digital journey begins for each project, Gehry uses far more traditional mediums to help him visualize the formal possibilities of a building. As well as models — a 3D collage of crumpled card and all manner of inanimate objects — the architect’s sketches have become synonymous with the dramatic aesthetics of his completed structures.

 

“I think of them as scribble,” says Gehry of his freeform line drawings. “I don’t think they mean anything to anybody except to me. At the end of the project we wheel out these little drawings and they’re uncannily like the finished building.” To mark exactly a decade since Pollack’s fascinating movie brought Gehry’s unique approach to a global audience, we take a closer look at seven of the architect’s most fluid scribbles, together with the iconic architectural landmarks they inspired.

Plastically fragmented in several blocks... Peugeot Skyscraper in Buenos Aires, a Project by Maurizio...

Plastically fragmented in several blocks... Peugeot Skyscraper in Buenos Aires, a Project by Maurizio... | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Maurizio Scripanti (1916-1996) was an original figure in Italian post-war architectural panorama. You maybe remember another project of him that we featured here in Socks:  the Teatro Lirico for the City of Cagliari (1965)

His lifelong research was daring in every aspect of the architectural production (from the representation techniques, to the technological and spatial investigations) without ever being utopical.
His proposals tended to always keep a pragmatical approach and focus on feasibility even when they looked extremely visionary.

His entry for the competition for an office building for Peugeot in Buenos Aires (competition: 1961) deals with a double scale: the monumental, embodied by the skyscraper as a whole, and that of the single offices for the different companies which were to occupy the spaces.

The main volume is plastically fragmented in several blocks and the façade is composed by orientable brises-soleil plated with coloured elements and lights.
The brands of the offices could be integrated over this movable façade and changed throught time, merging completely with the architecture of the building. In Sacripanti’s words (our traslation from the Italian text) the Peugeot skyscraper was a “vertical neighborhood warped with lames upon which it is possible to write”

The introduction of a strong graphical component in the project underlines the architect’s awareness of the communicational role a building could play in the consumer society.

En 2001, Doina Petrescu a initié à Paris avec Constantin Petcou l'Atelier d'architecture autogérée (AAA), un réseau interdisciplinaire qui développe des 'stratégies' et des 'tactiques' de recherche et d’intervention dans la ville, au croisement de multiples points de vue, incluant urbanistes, chercheurs, activistes et habitants.
La rencontre a pour objectif d'interroger le montage, le rôle et la place de cette agence qui s'inscrit par sa relation à la commande architecturale en marge des modèles plus communément répandus dans la profession. Elle s'attachera également à discuter la façon dont cette pratique dite alternative suscite aujourd'hui un intérêt croissant dans les centres de pouvoir aussi bien industriels qu'universitaires.
Sandra Parvu est architecte et docteur en études urbaines (EHESS, Paris). Elle est chercheur dans le laboratoire Architecture Anthropologie (LAVUE UMR 7218) et enseigne à l'ENSA Paris Val de Seine.

Journal de bord de quatre chantiers (Mētispresses, 2011).

Le Corbusier’s Ronchamp Chapel Covered by GRAFFITI

Le Corbusier’s Ronchamp Chapel Covered by GRAFFITI | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
After covering digitally the Villa Savoye, built by Le Corbusier, of his virtual graffitis, Brusels-based artist Xavier Delory focused, still with his comptuer, on the Chapel Notre-Dame Du Haut, in the French small city called Ronchamp. Loving a lot the architectural shapes of this architect, Xavier pasted frescos with organic, geometric and colorful patterns on the chapel’s facade.
