POLLUTION-guzzling, Air-cleaning Buildings

POLLUTION-guzzling, Air-cleaning Buildings | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Seven million premature deaths in a single year were the result of air pollution exposure, the World Health Organization reported recently. That’s one in eight of total global deaths in 2012. This new finding doubles previous estimates, confirming that air pollution is now the world’s single largest environmental health risk. Cities around the world are increasingly turning to technology for solutions, and here are some of the most innovative designs...

100 Architects From 6 [six] Continents Discuss “Time Space Existence” at the 2014 Venice Biennale

100 Architects From 6 [six] Continents Discuss “Time Space Existence” at the 2014 Venice Biennale | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

The much anticipated Time Space Existence collateral event at Palazzo Bembo andPalazzo Mora for the 2014 Venice Architecture Biennale brought together a diverse group of 100 architects from six continents in an “extraordinary combination.” Summoned by the Dutch non-profit Global Arts Affairs Foundation, the exhibitions the architects were asked to produce documents current developments and thoughts in architecture, highlighting fundamental questions by discussing the philosophical concepts of Time, Space and Existence. Featuring well established architects next to lesser known practices, they all share a “dedication to architecture in the broadest sense of their profession.”

MEXICO PAVILION EXPO 2015 BY FRANCISCO LÓPEZ GUERRA ALMADA

MEXICO PAVILION EXPO 2015 BY FRANCISCO LÓPEZ GUERRA ALMADA | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Since its first participation in a Universal Exhibition (Philadelphia in 1876), Mexico has always delivered an impressive pavilion that captures the imagination. The fundamental theme of Expo Milano 2015 is sustainability, being as much a driving principle for feeding the world’s population, as a criteria for architectural design, in terms of eco-friendly materials, ease of construction and dismantling, and fulfilling proposed programs.


The architect Francisco López Guerra Almada, together with Jorge Vallejo and consulting biologist Juan Guzzy, designed the winning proposal of the international competition based on the most typical Mexican food: corn. The designers   were inspired a typical food of the Mexican culinary tradition : the corn.

[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

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.

Architectural fantasy stimulates the architect’s activity, it arouses creative thought not only for the artist but it also educates and arouses all those who come in contact with him; it produces new directions, new quests, and opens new horizons

— Iakov Chernikhov, 192


Chernikhov is a pioneer, a trail-blazer of new themes in graphic art, and also, in part, of new modes of graphic design

Which Architect Is WINNING The 3D Printing Rat Race? | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Architects and builders all over the world seem to be participating in a fictional rat race to build the very first 3D-printed house. In the past five years we've seen quite some drawings and models of 3D-printed architecture, but only few architects have the printers running until now. In this article we'll compare five of the most prominent 3D-printing initiatives in the world to find out what 3D-printed architecture has in store for the coming years.

Les Promenades Urbaines: Cycle « Le LOGEMENT SOCIAL à Paris, construire et habiter la ville »

Les Promenades Urbaines:  Cycle « Le LOGEMENT SOCIAL à Paris, construire et habiter la ville » | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Depuis plus de cent ans, le logement Hlm à Paris contribue à la fabrique de la ville dans ses dimensions urbaines et sociales. La capitale compte aujourd’hui près de 187 000 logements sociaux, dont la moitié environ est gérée par Paris Habitat-OPH.


Depuis le logement de masse de la ceinture rouge, jusqu’aux opérations d’insertion urbaine fi ne pratiquées aujourd’hui, les réalisations de Paris Habitat-OPH témoignent de l’histoire du logement social, et des innovations sociales et architecturales dont celui-ci est porteur. Elles participent aussi de l’histoire du développement de la capitale et de ses mutations.


Aujourd’hui, un quart de la population parisienne vit dans le logement social, qui répond à une mission d’intérêt général et s’inscrit dans une volonté de maintien de la mixité sociale dans la capitale.

[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.

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.
