[Sao Paulo, BRASIL] hiperstudio + estudio arkiz: aliah hotel in sao paulo

[Sao Paulo, BRASIL] hiperstudio + estudio arkiz: aliah hotel in sao paulo | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

In preparation for the 2014 world cup hosted in several cities throughout brasil, sao paulo will be exhibiting their recent architectural development
in all fields of design, not excluding hospitality. the 'aliah hotel' by local firms hiperstudio and estudio arkiz will greet and host international visitors
in one of the most ecologically sensitive structures built in the country, scheduled to open in 2014. located at the top of a hill in bragança paulista,
the lobby structure enjoys optimum daylight and ventilation. two volumes constructed of inhabitable steel box trusses are supported on large
exposed round concrete pylons that hoist the programmatic spaces above the ground and create a porosity on grade where circulation and air are
free to flow through the building. a wing of the main building appears to have broken off and juts out at an angle, creating a green interstitial space
and an exterior courtyard in the resultant wedge. the formal split allows unique views, lighting and ventilation, as well as outside access by each
individual room. excess direct sunlight and solar gain are controlled by a living green screen that simultaneously improves air quality, and the
green roof provides optimum insulation and a sophisticated grey water catchment and recycling system to be used throughout the building.

Newly Opened Archigram-esque Research Station “Walks” Across The Antarctic

Newly Opened Archigram-esque Research Station “Walks” Across The Antarctic | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Call it this generation’s “Walking City.” Halley VI, the latest iteration of Britain’s Halley Antarctic research stations, is now fully operational—and it walks, sort of. Halley VI opened today on the centennial commemoration of the first British Antarctic expeditions on the Brunt Ice Shelf,  which launched an entirely new and incredibly fertile avenue of scientific research exploring the Earth’s near-space atmosphere. Designed by Hugh Broughton Architects, the new “re-locatable”—i.e. “movable”—facility is the first of its kind in the world

[Sweden ] Henning Larsen architects: Umea Art Museum

[Sweden ] Henning Larsen architects: Umea Art Museum | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

located in a university town in sweden, the umea art museum is part of a greater complex of artistic institutes and exhibition facilities. the collaboration 
between danish firm henning larsen architects and white arkitekter is an endeavor of ambition; the building seeks to put into dialogue art, design and 
architecture so as to secure umea as a site of critical creative discourse. the museum is unique in its tower-like form, creating a protruding silhouette by 
the umeälven river. large, square exhibition spaces are free of structural elements and plentiful in glazing so as to allow ample natural light to filter 
through the space. while the interiors provide a tabula rasa to accomodate the ever-changing programs of both contemporary and historically significant art, 
the exterior maintains an aesthetic character that is at once warm and replete with material dynamism. the arts campus buildings, comprised of the 
academy of fine arts, the institute of design and the new school of architecture, are clad in vertical louvres of siberian larch with a multiplicity of directional grain. 
the verticality of the facade is broken only by the rhythm of large windows and a glass middle floor. the museum is a publicly accessible and forges a landmark 
for interdisciplinary study to proliferate.

AD Classics: Maison du Bresil / Le Corbusier | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Created as a microcosm of Brazilian life and culture, Maison du Bresil is a significant example of Le Corbusier’s high-density residential design. Inaugurated in 1959, it is one of twenty-three international residences at the Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris, located in the heart of Paris. As the “House of Brazil”, the building acts as both a residence hall for Brazilian academics, students, teachers, and artists, and as a hub for Brazilian culture, by providing exhibition spaces and archival resources. Notably, the building has provided residence to famous Brazilians, such as the renowned journalist Barroso Zózimo do Amaral.

Hotel Reykjavik / OOIIO Arquitectura | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

El concurso propone la creación de un nuevo hotel de 130 habitaciones. Un hotel de tales características se convertiría inmediatamente en el mayor edificio del entorno, superando en escala a todas las edificaciones previas, destacando demasiado y convirtiéndose en una discontinuidad evidente dentro del tejido urbano de Kvosin. El área propuesta para el concurso en Kvosin es extraordinariamente sensible. Se trata del corazón mismo de Islandia. Cualquier actuación arquitectónica en la zona debe ser consciente de esto y comprender muy bien el entorno.

Para avanzar en la promoción de la educación artística, la Academia Central de Bellas Artes de Beijing y la Academia China de Arte en Xiangshan han anunciado planes para construir una nueva universidad en las afueras de Hangzhou para la primavera de 2014. Diseñado por Kengo Kuma & Associates, el Museo de la Academia China de Arte armonizará con la topografía exuberante y se resiste a modificar las pendientes existentes para dar cabida a las instalaciones de 4.936 m2. En su lugar, la configuración del museo imitará el patrón en forma de rombo que se descubrió dentro de las curvas de nivel, generando un espacio de exposición fluido con plantas en distintos niveles y galerías parcialmente exteriores.

[New York] BIG’s West 57th “Pyramid” Wins Final Approval

[New York] BIG’s West 57th “Pyramid” Wins Final Approval | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

After an “arduous” public review and a heated debate over affordable housing, New York’s City Council has unanimously awarded final approval to BIG’s tetrahedral-shaped West 57th apartment building in Manhattan. As reported by Crain’s New York Business, a compromise has been made to include 173 affordable housing units within the 32-story, 750-unit residential building and the neighboring industrial building that will be converted into 100 additional rental apartments. As you may recall, the community board and Councilwoman Gail Brewer initially threatened to “torpedo the project” if the apartments were only made affordable for a 35 year period. However, Durst apparently won them over by contributing one million dollars into an affordable housing fund.
