Lola Ripollés's curator insight, January 19, 1:20 AM

 

China is now the land for imagination.

The helix structure was conceived as a new landmark for Chansgha, affording visitors a unique vantage point of the city’s busy Central Business District and the surrounding lake. In total, the public spiral is 88 meters in diameter and runs one kilometer in length, hosting a range of different programs from hospitality facilities to extensive public gardens, sun decks to children play areas.

[ARCHITECTURE-FICTION] Twilt Tower For Rome - eVolo | Architecture Magazine

[ARCHITECTURE-FICTION] Twilt Tower For Rome - eVolo | Architecture Magazine | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

The Twilt Tower – twisted and tilted, is a design proposal by Paolo Venturella. The site for the tower is “E.U.R.” (Esposizione Universale Roma, in 1942) and is provoked by the “Eurosky tower” by Franco Purini, in author’s opinion a strange, box-like residential tower with photovoltaic panels on top, not integrated in overall design at all. That creates a design where the shape does not come out from its function, they state at Paolo Venturella Architects, and this further generates deep idiosyncrasy against this architecture. What they propose is to make it fall down and replace with a similar in the function but radically different in the shape tower.

Sneaking into Bulgaria’s ABANDONED Communist party headquarters

Sneaking into Bulgaria’s ABANDONED Communist party headquarters | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

“GOOD NEWS! We’ve reached the sixth floor!” Apart from our motley crew of lamps that included an old Nokia cellphone screen, it was absolute darkness. It wasn’t really a staircase. That’s far too generous a term. More a collection of rusty steel ladders. Later, on our way back down, we timed the descent to the basement. It took 20 minutes, and it probably takes about double that to reach the roof of the tower component of perhaps the world’s most spectacular abandoned building: the former Bulgarian Communist Party Headquarters known as Buzludzha.

New Harvard GSD Class Asks: Are Competitions WORTH It?

New Harvard GSD Class Asks: Are Competitions WORTH It? | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

For small firms, design competitions can often feel like a Catch22 - enter and lose precious time and resources (usually for nothing) or avoid them – at the risk of losing out on the “big break.” Now a new class at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design takes on just this quandary, as well as the many other practical, theoretical, and moral implications of architectural competitions for the profession. Learn more at this article at the Harvard Gazette.

Rem Koolhaas’ “Elements”: UNCOVERING Architecture’s Origins, Assuring Its Future

Rem Koolhaas’ “Elements”: UNCOVERING Architecture’s Origins, Assuring Its Future | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

ArchDaily has been asking architects ”What is Architecture?” for over 6 years. It’s a question that few interviewees answer without hesitation or bristling. But after asking over 200 architects, we’ve noticed a pattern: even though many people start very similarly, the answers soon diverge in a way that demonstrates the promise of the profession. And no matter how architecture is defined, the strong majority of architects hold an underlying belief in its ability to influence.


When the ArchDaily team visited the Venice Biennale and entered the Central Pavilion of the Giardini, home to the Elements exhibition, we saw it as a dynamic, immersive, exhaustive response to the question “What is Architecture?” Visitors to the Biennale are introduced to architecture through its elements–the pieces, parts and fundamentals that comprise built structures around the globe.

When Koolhaas chose to focus on Elements, he produced a text (in both book and exhibition format) that gives us the tools to understand what architecture is and how is it has evolved (or stagnated). Even though he didn’t invite people to show projects in the traditional sense, the AD editors saw a hopeful undertone to Elements — it is a resource that can be revisited over and over again, one that will arm the current and future designers of our built world with the knowledge they’ll need to address the issues they have yet to even confront.

[Pinup 2014] DEATH by Architecture

[Pinup 2014] DEATH by Architecture | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

About Death By Architecture

Death By Architecture (DBA) began in 1995 as the personal web page of Mario Cipresso, an undergraduate architecture student at the University of Illinois at Chicago. By 1997 Death By Architecture had become the preeminent site for architecture competition information on the internet. Joining with several other like-minded sites in Europe, DBA was a founding partner of the International Competition Network in 1998.


Enjoying a solid presence on the net since those early days, Death By Architecture needed to grow beyond just one individual to truly realize its potential, to serve its loyal users and to pursue a more meaningful goal. After securing an all too critical grant from the LEF Foundation in northern California, the Los Angeles based interactive media design firm of Garden Digital was approached to begin this first of two phases.


The forthcoming second phase intends to produce an unparalleled catalog of competition information and entries as well as expand Death By Architecture's content and feature set.


Considering sponsoring a design competition? Death By Architecture has over 12 years of experience with the participation, management and promotion of design competitions. We bring valuable and unique insight and resources to the competition process, ensuring your event is a success. For more information on how Death By Architecture can manage your organization's design competition, please contact Mario Cipresso mario@deathbyarchitecture.com.


Please note: Although we do make every effort to ensure our competition information is reasonably accurate and complete, it is the responsibility of the competitor to verify all conditions and requirements.

5 Reasons Why Architects Should Volunteer to Build ABROAD

5 Reasons Why Architects Should Volunteer to Build ABROAD | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Patrick McLoughlin is one of the two founders of Build Abroad, a volunteer organization that offers architectural and construction services to developing nations. In this article, originally published on Archi-Ninja, McLoughlin shares five reasons why architects should get involved with organizations like his own. 


Many architecture firms collaborate with non-government organisations to help in developing nations. A.gor.a Architects for example, are currently designing and building a new health clinic to provide free healthcare to Burmese refugees and migrants. Auburn University Rural Studio works with architects and students to build homes in rural communities while instigating community-action, collaboration, and sustainability.


A number of organisations also facilitate construction volunteeringArchitecture for Humanity provides architecture, planning and project management services for disaster reconstruction. Architects without Borders is a global operation to provide ecologically sensitive and culturally appropriate design assistance to communities in need.

If Mad Max Were a BRILLIANT Architect, Here’s What He’d Build | Design | WIRED | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

It’s hard to know what’s real and what’s fake inside the worlds Justin Plunkett creates. That rusted merry-go-round-like structure in the above photo? That’s a real-life playground in the Cape Town neighborhood of Lavender Hill. The monolithic roller coaster behind it? A product of Plunkett’s 3-D animation skills.


In his recent Con/struct series, Plunkett, a Cape Town designer and creative director, has created a Mad Max fantasy world, filled with tottering skyscrapers made of refuse from a bygone era. Each of his images is the result of multiple photographs layered together with computer-generated illustrations. Plunkett had been amassing a collection of photographs taken in some of the most down-and-out neighborhoods of Cape Town. “I had been photographing places and environments for a while with no particular agenda or plan for them,” he says. He’ll take a tire from one, a metal container from another, the sky from a different photograph and then construct an illustrated architectural structure in the middle of it.

[Jean-Louis Cohen] Les ARCHITECTES au front: exposition "L’architecture en uniforme" | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Guernica - Hiroshima. 1937-1945. Deux villes martyres, deux bombardements. Le premier annonce les ravages de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, le second marque sa fin. Ainsi s’ouvre l’exposition "L’architecture en uniforme", réalisée par l’historien Jean-Louis Cohen, auteur en 2011 d’un ouvrage éponyme. Dessins, plans, affiches et films de propagande à l’appui, elle dépeint les avancées et les ambigüités du premier des arts en pleine guerre, qui, comme d’autres disciplines, eut ses dévoyés et ses justes. Elle rappelle, aussi, l’impact de la guerre sur les techniques et l’esthétique.

Du Bauhaus au nazisme

Le Bauhaus, écrin moderniste jusqu’à sa liquidation par les nazis, résume ces extrêmes. Exilé aux Etats-Unis, dans la School of Design qu’il a fondée à Chicago, László Moholy-Nagy enseigne l’art du camouflage. Otto Brandenberger conçoit les baraques métalliques en demi-tonneaux Quonset, qui hébergeront les GI’s, puis deviendront les premiers "bidonvilles" pour sans-abri dans les ruines de l’après-guerre.

Project HELIX: Reviving Venezuela’s Unfinished Modernist Utopia | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Although construction was never completed, “The Helix” in Caracas is one of the most important relics of the Modern movement in Venezuela. The 73,000 square meter project – designed in 1955 by Jorge Romero Gutiérrez, Peter Neuberger and Dirk Bornhorst – takes the form of a double spiral topped by a large geodesic dome designed byBuckminster Fuller. It was characterized by a series of ascending and descending ramps meant to carry visitors to its variety of programmatic spaces - including 320 shops, a 5 star hotel, offices, a playground, a television studio and a space for events and conventions.

Today, Project Helix seeks to rescue the urban history and memory of the building through a series of exhibitions, publications and educational activities

Inspirado en el crecimiento vegetativo y el andamiaje de bambú de Asia, Thomas Corbasson y VS-A han propuesto un proyecto conceptual de un rascacielos orgánico paraLondres, que incorporará los residuos producidos por sus ocupantes. El edificio se elevará verticalmente a medida que el vidrio y el papel necesario para la construcción sea desechado por los residentes del edificio. Se estima que el material reciclado sea suficiente para que la fachada del edificio se pueda producir en un año. El proyecto obtuvo una mención especial en una reciente Competencia de Rascacielos y Super rascacielos.
