Doris Kim Sung: Metal that breathes

Modern buildings with floor-to-ceiling windows give spectacular views, but they require a lot of energy to cool. Doris Kim Sung works with thermo-bimetals, smart materials that act more like human skin, dynamically and responsively, and can shade a room from sun and self-ventilate.

Transit-City : Urban think tank.

 

Et si l'architecture ne s'inventait plus dans les pays riches ?

Et si l'urbanisme s'inventait dans les villes du sud ?

Et si les réponses occidentales n'étaient plus efficaces ?

Et si la frugalité était la seule solution ?

Bref, et s'il fallait repenser totalement nos façons de concevoir l'architecture ?

¿Arquitectura sin arquitectos?

¿Arquitectura sin arquitectos? | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Los borradores de una nueva ley avisan de que se permitiría proyectar sin la formación adecuada

 

Hace muchos años un arquitecto mayor me contaba que cuando, lleno de entusiasmo, le mostró a su cliente la fachada de su primer proyecto, este le dijo: “Enséñesela usted al vecino de enfrente que es el que la va a ver durante lo que le queda de vida” (era cuando las casas se hacían para alguien y no para vender).

 

En esta frase se encierra uno de los argumentos, y no precisamente el único, para una serie de disposiciones legales. La primera, de 1787, reinando Carlos III, y la última, de momento, la Ley 38/1999 de 5 de noviembre, de Ordenación de la Edificación, LOE, que establecen algo tan obvio como que:

 

“Las casas las hacen los arquitectos que son los que han estudiado Arquitectura” (nadie pone en duda que a los enfermos los tratan los médicos, que son los que han estudiado medicina, y aunque algunos abogados de aseguradoras sepan bastante de medicina, a nadie se le ocurre que vean enfermos y les receten).

[HLM] Projection du film Habitations Légèrement Modifiées le 27 juin 2013 film documentaire de Guillaume Meigneux | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Film documentaire, 2013 Produit par CelluloProd, INterland Films, avec le soutien de la bourse "Brouillon d'un rêve"

 

"Ils vont mettre un ascenseur dans ma cuisine, vous imaginez ? Ils sont fous !" s’inquiète à quelques semaines du début des travaux Mme C., 95 ans. Salué depuis par la critique internationale, la rénovation de la tour Bois-le-Prêtre des architectes Druot, Lacaton et Vassal témoigne d’une métamorphose inédite en milieu habité. Le film part à la rencontre des habitants de la tour et les suit tout au long des deux années de chantier. A travers la lente mutation de ces lieux de vie chargés d’histoires, c’est l’attachement que nous entretenons tous avec nos intérieurs qui est rendu visible.

Developer Plans for New York’s Next Iconic Building

Developer Plans for New York’s Next Iconic Building | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Boxy replicas of high-end offices dominate New York’s Park Avenue skyline, with only two modernist exceptions breaking the mold – Mies van der Rohe’s Seagram Building andSkidmore, Owings & Merrill’s Lever House. As the static skyline has remained largely untouched for nearly four decades, New York City developer L&L Holding Co. has announced plans to replace the aging tower of 425 Park Avenue with a new state-of-the-art, LEED-certified skyscraper. Norman Foster, Jean Nouvel, Zaha Hadid and Richard Meierare just a few of the eleven distinguished architects that L&L has invited to join in a competition for the redevelopment of the 65 year-old tower.

 

Here is the complete star-studded list of prospective architects for the 425 Park Avenue competition:

 

Atelier Christian de Portzamparc

Ateliers Jean Nouvel

Foster + Partners

Herzog & de Meuron

Kohn Pederson Fox Associates

Maki and Associates

OMA / Rem Koolhas

Renzo Piano Building Workshop

Richard Meier and Partners Architects

Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners

Zaha Hadid Architects

Retrospective: The Incredible Inflatable Architecture Of The 1960s

Retrospective: The Incredible Inflatable Architecture Of The 1960s | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

One does not often think of balloons, zeppelins, and moon bounces as architecture. Yet in the counterculture of the late ’60s and early ’70s, young architects and architecture students increasingly turned to inflatables as a way to critique the hardness and uncompromising forms of modernism. While many of these were drawings and conceptual ideas never realized, others were deployed at music festivals and as temporary performances. Ant Farm, a radical architecture collective based in Berkeley, California, even went so far as to issue the Inflatocookbook, a guide to the construction and realization of inflatable architecture.

The title “INTERN” should be BANISHED from the profession of architecture. | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

The title “intern” should be banished from the profession of architecture. It’s about time. It has run its course. It’s outmoded and contributes to a culture of exploitation in the guise of opportunity. Frankly, it makes us look so nineteenth century.
