The UK’s Most ‘Outstanding’ Green Building

The UK’s Most ‘Outstanding’ Green Building | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

BREEAM is the world’s foremost environmental assessment method and rating system for buildings, with 200,000 buildings certified and around a million registered for assessment since it was first launched in 1990.

 

The largest commercial office in Manchester has now become the highest scoring BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ building in the UK with a score of 95.32%.

Designed by 3DReid, The Co-operative Group’s new £115 million low-energy, highly sustainable headquarters brings their 3,500 staff under one roof in a spectacular 500,000 square foot building.  

The building, known as 1 Angel Square, has been designed to deliver a 50 per cent reduction in energy consumption compared to The Co-operative’s current Manchester complex and an 80 per cent reduction in carbon. This will lead to operating costs being lowered by up to 30 per cent...

Foster’s Design for the New York Public Library Unveiled

Foster’s Design for the New York Public Library Unveiled | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

 

The New York Public Library (NYPL) has unveiled the details of their controversial plan to renovate the 20th century, Carrère and Hastings “masterpiece” on 5th Avenue. DesignedFoster + Partners, the $300 million dollar proposal is a response to the cultural shift from traditional stacks to online resources, as the library has experienced a 41% decrease in the use of collections over the last 15 years.

 

Sensitive to concerned critics, the renovation promises to preserve the building’s legacy as it integrates a new, state-of-the-art Circulating Library into its flagship Stephen A. Schwarzman Building on 42nd Street. Foster’s “library within a library” will transform seven floors of stacks, currently occupying the back of the building, into an aesthetically, technologically and environmentally advanced public space that meets the needs of our 21st century society.

Arquitectamos LOCOS?: ¿Zahas Hadides para qué? | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Asisto aburrido, cansado, hastiado, a otra nueva "genialidad" de Zaha Hadid, y me pregunto: "¿Por qué?" "Para qué?".
Zaha Hadid, como todos los arquitectos divinos, arquitectos-marca, arquitectos-estrella, ya no es una arquitecta. Ni siquiera es una persona. No es hombre ni mujer. Es un ente, una corporación. Su estudio se llama Zaha Hadid Architects. Son muchos arquitectos Zahas Hadides. O ninguno. Allí ya no hay arquitecto. No hay arquitectura.

The idea and initiative for a new technology center, Düzce TEKNOPARK has its origin at Düzce University represented by Rector Prof. Funda Sivrikaya-Serifoglu and assoc.Prof.

Le béton mis au point par les chercheurs de l’université de Catalogne absorbe une partie de l’eau de pluie pour se recouvrir de mousses et de lichen. Cette couche végétale améliore à la fois l’efficacité énergétique et les qualités esthétiques des bâtiments, tout en favorisant la capture de CO2.
