[LIMA] Notas Arquitectónicas: Arq. Juan Gunther | El fiel amante de una ciudad

[LIMA] Notas Arquitectónicas: Arq. Juan Gunther | El fiel amante de una ciudad | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Han pasado 55 años desde que Juan Gunther empezó a coleccionar fotos, planos y libros sobre la historia de la capital. Ese afán constante por la Ciudad de los Reyes lo llevó a integrar el Patronato de Lima y ser uno de los promotores del Centro Histórico como Patrimonio de la Humanidad. Aquí el testimonio de un hombre fascinado con la metrópoli limeña.

 

Solo una vez Juan Gunther Doering perdió la oportunidad de comprar un plano de Lima. “Lo había hecho el ejército chileno antes de la guerra. Estaban marcados todos los sitios donde se podía atacar. No tenía la plata en el bolsillo y el hombre que me lo ofrecía estaba en el Centro. Me fui a mi casa en Miraflores a sacar efectivo y cuando regresé ya lo había vendido. Casi me muero”. Para entender su desgracia deberíamos saber que este arquitecto de 84 años ha dedicado más de la mitad de su vida a la defensa y admiración de Lima, al punto de poseer la biblioteca más completa sobre ella.

Villa Asserbo: A Sustainable, PRINTED HOUSE That Snaps Together ...

Villa Asserbo: A Sustainable, PRINTED HOUSE That Snaps Together ... | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

We’ve covered 3D Printing a lot here at ArchDaily, but most of our coverage has been speculative and, frankly, futuristic – could we, one day, print out Gaudi-esque stone structures? Or even print a biologically-inspired, living house?

 

But today we heard a story about an alternative to 3D Printing‘s capabilities in the here and now - and its implications are pretty exciting.In a small town outside of Copenhagen, Danish architects Eentileen joined forces with London-based digital fabrication and architecture specialists, Facit Homes, to create Villa Asserbo: a 1,250 square foot, sustainable home made from Nordic plywood fabricated via CNC miller and easily “snapped” together.No heavy machinery, no cranes, no large labor force. Just a couple of guys, a few easily printed pieces, and six weeks.

The architects are looking to make the houses open to the public soon. If their easy, sustainable, well-designed model is the immediate future of alternative to 3D Printing (and considering it’s such a “snap,” it very well might be), then we’re all aboard...

Un architecte hollandais, Jord den Hollander, a conçu le BiebBus. Il s'agit d'une bibliothèque mobile compacte de deux étages fabriquée avec des containers inutiles. Le premier étage renferme les livres et le second, une salle de lecture dont le plancher est transparent afin de favoriser la dispersion de la lumière.

A Daily Dose of Architecture: Holding Pattern

A Daily Dose of Architecture: Holding Pattern | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

"Holding Pattern" is the product of a sustained dialog with MoMA PS1's courtyard and its neighbors. Instead of telling it what it should be, we patiently listened to what it and its neighbors had to say, then responded in kind. The result of this dialog is a scheme doesn't so much redesign the courtyard as reveal it.

 

Thanks to its neighbor, 2201 Jackson Avenue, which managed to muscle its way into MoMA PS1's courtyard, and to Jackson Avenue itself, which chopped off the block's southwestern corner, Warm Up has had to make do with a very odd, idiosyncratic space. [...] But as the best baseball stadiums demonstrate, having to make do with less-than-ideal conditions can yield positive outcomes.

 

"Holding Pattern" reveals this situation by stringing ropes from holes in MoMA PS1's concrete wall to the parapet across the courtyard. In the same way that Hugh Ferris reveals the potential of New York City's 1916 zoning code by drawing the theoretical building envelope, we reveal the very odd, idiosyncratic space of the courtyard and simultaneously create an inexpensive and column-free space for the activity below. From the ground, the experience is of a soaring hyperboloid surface.

Indoor/outdoor connectivity defines this modern home... | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Using building materials like steel, glass and metal cladding, Australian studio TT Architecture constructed a complex set of architectural details gathered under a simple name: Carey House. This modern family home was designed to include an extensive system of indoor-outdoor connectivity elements, admired by the owners and considered one of the best features of the house, as described by its inhabitants: “The flow of the internal spaces and visual connection between the inside and outside spaces is outstanding.”

This floating aspect is inherent in the cantilevered decks and bay windows and the substantial roof overhangs.” Materializing into a dream home, this joining of textures, surfaces and voids were intended to become a bespoke set of spaces cradling the owner’s lifestyle with extreme attention to details. Resulting in a perfectly adapted cluster of family rooms, the Carey House displays a necessary visual connection to the surrounding landscape...

L’aménagement de l’espace académique : Un nouvel enjeu de communication | Le blog de Brigitte Fournier

L’aménagement de l’espace académique : Un nouvel enjeu de communication | Le blog de Brigitte Fournier | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

L’aménagement de l’espace académique, ou du campus, se situe de plus en plus au centre des préoccupations des établissements d’enseignement. (...)

Une attention particulière portée aux bibliothèques :

Pour survivre à Google qui veut numériser tous les livres, les bibliothèques n’ont d’autre choix que de se moderniser radicalement en délivrant une réelle expérience de lecture et d’apprentissage. A l’heure de la dématérialisation des savoirs, c’est aussi un moyen pour les universités auxquelles elles sont rattachées d’affirmer leur raison d’être, en tant que “temples du savoir et de la connaissance”.
