[Encore un TRIANGLE !] Daniel Libeskind to Build "Pyramid Tower" in Jerusalem

[Encore un TRIANGLE !] Daniel Libeskind to Build "Pyramid Tower" in Jerusalem | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

The Jerusalem Municipality has approved plans for mixed-use "Pyramid Tower" designed by Studio Libeskind. A collaboration with local architect Yigal Levi, the tapered tower will rise 105-meters in the heart of the city, adjacent to Mahane Yehuda market - commonly known as "The Shuk". Its form, said to reference "Jerusalem’s existing architectural language," is designed to allow maximum light to the public plaza below. A geometric pattern of Jerusalem stone and glass will adorn the facade, while its arched colonnade connects the tower's ground floor shopping arcade to the surrounding open space. 



“The Pyramid mediates between ancient traditions and myths, while providing a 21st century reinterpretation of that great form,” said Daniel Libeskind. “The design complements the context and gives the neighborhood a vibrant public space in the heart of the ancient city.”

You may think you've outgrown your favorite toy, but we have the perfect book to turn your childhood LEGO® collection into a legitimate (and seriously fun) adult pastime. The LEGO® Architect by Tom Alphin brings the best of playtime to the forefront of design through a visual story of the history of building, infused by models made entirely of LEGO®. 



Find out to build your own neoclassical dome, or Frank Lloyd Wright's trademark Prairie House, or even the iconic Lever House by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill using the simplest of LEGO® components! Enter the world of The LEGO® Architect, where little white bricks can do anything with a little ingenuity and some architectural know-how.

It's Nice That : Istanbul’s impossibly colourful MINIMALIST architecture, shot by Yener Torun

It's Nice That : Istanbul’s impossibly colourful MINIMALIST architecture, shot by Yener Torun | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Yener Torun is a 32 year-old architect who has turned Istanbul into the geographical equivalent of Aladdin’s cave of wonders. Tucked away among the beautiful Ottoman and Byzantine architecture and the blue Bosphorus are a wealth of impossibly bright buildings dominated by geometric patterns, rainbow hues and funny architectural idiosyncrasies. And through his Instagram account, Yener has been slowly but steadily documenting it all.


His photographs are more impressive than any we’ve ever seen taken for Instagram so we spoke to Yener about what drives him to unearth these gems, the difficulty of looking for the bright and the brash in a city which is largely subtle and traditional in its landscapes and the developing art and design scene in the Turkish city.

ParadigmGallery's curator insight, March 9, 1:58 PM

This is not how I imagined Istanbul, what about you? Yener Torun takes us on a fantastic  journey through his images of the architecture you might not expect around this city.

 

"I started to combine street photography with minimalism, and I started looking for buildings with colourful façades and patterned walls."

 

I" believe that the vibrant colours I find have positive effect on people who see them. These oases I find in the desert of grey buildings help me think more positively about the future too. And at least I can say this provides a personal antidote."

Daiwa UBIQUITOUS Computing Research Building

Daiwa UBIQUITOUS Computing Research Building | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

The building was constructed for the university’s new field of research on ubiquitous computing. Our aim was to break away from conventional image of campuses that consist of hard materials such as concrete, metal or stone, and to instead design a soft building made with wood and earth. Here, scalelike panels of natural materials (wood and earth) gently undulate to form a smooth and organic façade.
At the center of the building comes an organ-like aperture covered with soft membrane. It joins the lane in the front and the Japanese garden (part of the university president’s guest house) at the back. The opening also generates a gentle and organic flow of light and wind in the campus, which is otherwise dominated by the strict grid arrangement.

Le nom d'Henri Ciriani s'invite, plus ou moins, dans bien des conversations en France. Plus qu'aucun autre, l'architecte y a fait école. Cependant, il est un ailleurs où Enrique Ciriani s'est fait aussi chantre de la modernité : le Pérou. Ceci étant écrit, l'architecture blanche de Lima, du moins la plus récente, n'est plus celle que l'on admire. Il faut désormais de la couleur et de la matérialité. Vive le 'péruvianisme' tardif !

Toasting Pierre Jeanneret, the LE CORBUSIER Sidekick Who Made a Name for Himself in India

Toasting Pierre Jeanneret, the LE CORBUSIER Sidekick Who Made a Name for Himself in India | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

A hundred-and-nine years ago today was the birth ofPierre Jeanneret, the late Swiss architect and furniture designer whose career is, for the most part, recognized in association with his more famous cousin, Le Corbusier. In the early 1920s, the cousins partnered up and soon devised "Five Points Towards a New Architecture," the manifesto that directly led to Villa Savoye, the famous modernist structure they designed together in 1928. As art encyclopedia Oxford Art Online puts it, Jeanneret "often stimulated and provoked his cousin's imagination or moderated it with his own realism." He played a big part in pinning down all the technical aspects of their designs as well. Working with French designer Charlotte Perriand, Jeanneret and Le Corb also crafted a series of modern furniture, including the iconic Chaise Longue.

A Virtual Look Into MIES van der ROHE's  one of the most paradoxical houses of the 20th century. | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Farnsworth House, the temple of domestic modernism designed by Mies van der Rohe as a weekend retreat for a Chicago doctor, is one of the most paradoxical houses of the 20th century. A perfectionist mirage, it floats like a pavilion in a park, but its history has been beset by plagues, floods and feuds. As the second installment of a series of three modernist classics presented by Archilogic, we’ve modeled the Farnsworth house so that you can see if—in spite of its austere reputation—it can be lived in after all. In this model you can explore the spatial arrangement of the house, and refurnish it with Eames chairs, deck it out with your IKEA favorites, or booby-trap it with children’s toys.

Virtual reality will allow architects to "change the world LIKE a GOD"

Virtual reality will allow architects to "change the world LIKE a GOD" | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Architects will soon be walking clients through 3D models of their designs using virtual reality devices like Oculus Rift, says visualiser Olivier Demangel


"Virtual reality will become an essential tool for architects," Demangel says in the movie.

"This technology is going to be so precise, you're going to be like a magician. You'll be able to change the world around you like a god."


Demangel, who works for London 3D imaging company IVR NATION, wanted to get architects excited about the possibilities of virtual reality technology. To do this, he created a digital walkthrough of Ty Hedfan, a house in Wales designed by architects Featherstone Young, which was featured on Dezeen in 2011.

"I saw the photographs and plans on the Dezeen website and decided to create a replica of this house for a virtual reality experience," he explains.

To highlight some of the key figures in architecture over the past 150 years, Complex Media has created a list of “25 Architects You Should Know,” covering a range of icons including Zaha HadidIeoh Ming PeiPhilip JohnsonOscar NeimeyerSOMDaniel Libeskind, and more.
