Réunion d'architecte, constructeur et industriel : Une maison bois en forme de cube

Réunion d'architecte, constructeur et industriel : Une maison bois en forme de cube | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

DIAPORAMA. Cube 45, une maison qui porte bien son nom. Avec sa forme carré, cette demeure de 4-5 pièces est issue du concept So'Bois qui consiste à réunir architecte, constructeur et industriel dans une même offre de maison bois basse consommation. Résultat : un habitat performant moderne aux lignes épurées. Visite.

(...)

 

Et si l'environnement est important dans le projet, la partie architecturale et plus particulièrement l'évolution des modes de vie n'a pas été oubliée : "La modularité fait partie des nouvelles formes d'habitat avec l'apparition du télétravail, les maisons éloignées des grandes villes etc.", précise Stéphane Béranger. Ainsi, une pièce à l'étage a été imaginée pour aussi bien servir de bureau que de chambre. Sur les 115 m2, un grand séjour de 30 m2 distribue l'espace et profite d'une hauteur de plafond de 5,5 mètres : "On se rend compte que la surface mesurée est inférieure à l'espace ressenti", confie l'architecte. Un esprit loft souligné par l'usage de grands volumes mais également par l'absence de couloirs. En rez-de-chaussée, on trouve aussi une chambre avec salle de bains. A l'étage, sont situées trois chambres et une salle de bains.

 

Quid du coût ? Le montant s'élève à 300.000 euros. Actuellement, trois maisons cube 45 ont déjà séduit des propriétaires. Mais ce n'est pas tout, So'Bois compte bien faire feu de tout bois et pourrait prochainement s'attaquer à l'habitat groupé. A suivre…

Unbuilt Washington: The Architect of the Capitol surveys the city of Washington that almost was, in an exhibit at the National Building Museum.

Unbuilt Washington: The Architect of the Capitol surveys the city of Washington that almost was, in an exhibit at the National Building Museum. | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

It’s hard to imagine a different Capitol sitting atop Jenkins Hill, an elevated site selected by Pierre-Charles L’Enfant, who described it to President George Washington in June 1791 as “a pedestal waiting for a monument.” Washington had directed the three-man board of commissioners brought on to manage the development of the new capital city to hire L’Enfant to design the city and its public buildings. But settling on a design for the Capitol Building wasn’t the most difficult decision of the time. For not only could the Capitol have looked much different than it does today, it might not have been located in the new city named for the father of our country in the first place.

Architecture In The Exam Room: An Exhibition Exploring Design And Medicine

Architecture In The Exam Room: An Exhibition Exploring Design And Medicine | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

We observe — and suffer daily from — the unforeseen consequences of our actions on the environment. We are anxious about ground pollution, food safety, pollen allergies, smog, asthma, cancer, obesity, epidemics, and ultimately, aging. Now that everything is perceived as a possible source of disease, the health, defense and fortification of our own bodies have become obsessive pursuits. We have begun to think of all aspects of our lives in medical terms.

 

Architecture, urban design, and landscape design are addressing these fears, incorporating medical issues and related concerns in their projects. Their new ideas and solutions are based on the optimistic premise that design has the capacity to deliver individual and collective well-being. Projects propose allergy-free gardens, more trees, cleaner air, soil remediation, and new quarantine spaces to prevent epidemic outbreaks. On the other hand, in addressing health issues, design also introduces new levels of complexity in projects that test industrial methods for food production, stairs that re-educate the obese and infirm, and the segregation of communities by age.

 

Imperfect Health is not a comprehensive survey of the relationships between health, architecture, cities and the environment. On the contrary, these projects for buildings, interiors, and open spaces are meant to highlight uncertainties and contradictions present in the ideas of health that are emerging in Western countries today, particularly in Europe and North America.

[Chengdu, China] Sliced Porosity Block / Steven Holl Architects, by Hufton + Crow

[Chengdu, China] Sliced Porosity Block / Steven Holl Architects, by Hufton + Crow | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

With much awaited anticipation, Steven Holl‘s Sliced Porosity Block in Chengdu, China has just been completed. Forming giant public plazas with a mix of various functions, the group of five towers is intended to be seen as more of a public area despite its towering design as already witnessed in the site. Its sun sliced geometry results from required minimum daylight exposures to the surrounding urban fabric prescribed by code and calculated by the precise geometry of sun angles. The large public space framed by the block is formed into three valleys inspired by a poem of Du Fu (713-770). In some of the porous openings chunks of different buildings are inserted.

[CHINE] la future bibliothèque hors norme de Dalian | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Dans le cadre d'un projet de construction d'une bibliothèque publique en Chine, à Dalian dans la province du Liaoning, a été organisé un concours destiné aux férus d'architecture : la Dalian Library Design Competition. Le grand gagnant a finalement été désigné, avec un concept aux lignes futuristes qui semblent échappées de l'univers de la science-fiction, rapporte Book Patrol.


La conception gagnante est le fruit des efforts de 10 Design, studio international rassemblant designers et architectes, et possédant des bureaux à Hong Kong, Shanghai, Édimbourg, et Denver.

How Santiago Calatrava blurred the lines between architecture and engineering to make buildings move

How Santiago Calatrava blurred the lines between architecture and engineering to make buildings move | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

We live in the world of a sad separation that began some five hundred years ago when art and science split apart. Scientists and technicians live in their own world, focusing mostly on the “how” of things. Others live in the world of appearances, using these things but not really understanding how they function. Just before this split occurred, it was the ideal of the Renaissance to combine these two forms of knowledge. This is why the work of Leonardo da Vinci continues to fascinate us, and why the Renaissance remains an ideal.

 

So why did Santiago Calatrava, now one of the world’s elite architects, decide to return to school in 1975 for a civil engineering degree after asserting himself as a promising young architect?

A paraître: Architecture et Bibliothèque. 20 ans de constructions

A paraître:  Architecture et  Bibliothèque. 20 ans de constructions | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

L'architecture des bibliothèques, point de départ ou d’aboutissement à l’existence même de celles-ci, cristallise les questionnements professionnels, et cela de manière encore plus aiguë à l’heure des mondes virtuels : quelles spécificités sont attachées à la construction de tels bâtiments culturels et comment envisager, dans l’architecture même, les évolutions du futur ? Quelles sont les attentes des professionnels, mais aussi des publics? Comment peut-on insérer un projet
de bibliothèque dans le maillage urbain et comment travailler avec les élus ?
Pour répondre à ces questions, l’ouvrage Architecture et bibliothèque, 20 ans de constructions a réuni architectes, programmiste, journaliste spécialisée en architecture, conservateurs des bibliothèques, élus, et même dessinateur.
Leurs discours s’entrecroisent, tissent un panorama de l’architecture des
bibliothèques en France depuis plus de vingt ans et proposent quelques
pistes de réflexion pour les évolutions à venir.

Micro-apartments are having a moment, and not just as conceptual exercises. Architectural Record

Micro-apartments are having a moment, and not just as conceptual exercises. Architectural Record | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Micro-apartments are having a moment, and not just as conceptual exercises. In Boston, San Francisco, and other metropolises these tiny units—around 300 square feet—are becoming a reality. A new exhibition at the Museum of the City of New York explores the changing demographic, social, and economic factors that could make micro-living viable and desirable in New York City. Making Room: New Models for Housing New Yorkersruns through September 15. The exhibition includes micro-unit schemes, a full-size model unit, and proposals from New York City’s adAPT competition, which called on developer-architect teams to design a building of micro-units. Mayor Michael Bloomberg will waive zoning regulations at an East 27th Street site so the winning design can be built there. RECORD spoke with Donald Albrecht, the museum’s curator of architecture and design, who organized the show with curatorial fellow Andrea Renner.

Posée sur un tapis de gazon ras, un bâtiment plat et aux volumes heurtés, étonnamment blanc... l'Usine Etoile

Posée sur un tapis de gazon ras, un bâtiment plat et aux volumes heurtés, étonnamment blanc... l'Usine Etoile | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Interlope, la zone s'étire le long de la route départementale, au delà, des champs de céréales. Les activités s'alignent : un transporteur routier, un fabricant de mobilier, une ancienne usine de roulements à bille suédoise aujourd'hui désaffectée, une autre de contreplaqué récemment fermée, un concessionnaire automobile et l'usine étoile. Dans ces confins de la ville apparaît, posée sur un tapis de gazon ras, un bâtiment plat et aux volumes heurtés, étonnamment blanc.

 

L'apparition paraît d'autant plus surprenante que son implantation en fond de parcelle dénote autant que son architecture surannée. Au-delà de la clôture composée de jolis croisillons en béton, le jardin s'enroule en strates successives autour d'un bassin. Surgissant de cette topographie, les sept branches de l'étoile érigent leur façades biaises que couronnent des débords proéminents. C'est ainsi qu'apparaît au passant l'usine étoile, anciennement conçue pour la fabrication de transformateurs électriques et aujourd'hui occupée par une entreprise de gestion du temps.
