Twitter et l'architecture : le début d'une histoire... | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Profitant d’une accalmie tant météorologique que professionnelle, je souhaitais vous faire part de mon avis et des mes modestes conseils sur le réseau social Twitter que de nombreux architectes, qu’ils soient maîtres d’oeuvre, journalistes, étudiants, critiques, blogueurs…, s’approprient de plus en plus. Néanmoins, la plupart d’entre eux n’en comprenne ni le sens, ni la portée et encore moins l’intérêt, comme le soulignait très justement ce tweet. Dommage car beaucoup de chose s’y passe et la communication des agences d’architecture y gagnerait beaucoup. Charrette les architectes ?

New NASA Base Shapes the Future of Green Building Technology

New NASA Base Shapes the Future of Green Building Technology | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

NASA's new Sustainability Base was designed by William McDonough + Partners to embody the spirit of NASA while fostering collaboration, supporting health and well-being, and exceeding the requirements of LEED® Platinum.

An exoskeleton approach provides for structural stability during seismic events, facilitates glare-free daylighting and shading, natural ventilation and connection to the outdoors, and flexibility of the workspace with its column-free interior.

Atop the two-story 50,000-square-foot building is a solid-oxide fuel cell and rooftop solar arrays, supplying the building with more energy than it requires and sending surplus back to the grid at Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California. Currently running on natural gas, the fuel cell is ready to be converted to landfill gas when a source is available...

Un nouvel exemple de batiment "green".

Sumaiya Banu's curator insight, August 23, 2013 1:34 AM

Software as a Service (SaaS) is the next generation technology that is being embraced widely by businesses today as it is cost efficient, maintenance free, flexible, and adaptable. PeopleWorks’ SaaS based application and software solutions with its cloud based platform offers mobility and ease of use, and can be accessed by employees anywhere and at any time. This helps businesses reduce turnaround time and save costs.

Alastair Parvin: Architecture for the people by the people | Video on TED.com

Architect Alastair Parvin presents a simple but provocative idea: what if, instead of architects creating buildings for those who can afford to commission them, regular citizens could design and build their own houses? The concept is at the heart of Wikihouse, an open source construction kit that means just about anyone can build a house, anywhere.

Alastair Parvin believes in making architecture accessible to 100 percent of the population.

TEDx: Why does everyone hate modern architecture? / David Chipperfield | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

In this Tedx talk, David Chipperfield of David Chipperfield Architects was invited to discuss the distrust that people feel about architecture, from a practitioners point of view, with the seductively titled talk: Why does everyone hate modern architecture?  Chipperfield asks us to consider architecture of the everyday – buildings that are being built on a daily basis, not the notable and expensive projects that are the exception.  In looking at today’s architecture, he laments over what he perceives to be, an unsuccessful way in which the majority of buildings are designed.

Will Mumbai's Tallest Skyscraper Be Its Greenest Too?

Will Mumbai's Tallest Skyscraper Be Its Greenest Too? | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

The proposed 116-story Imperial Tower will offer a slew of sustainable options.

Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture‘s latest proposal for Mumbai’s tallest building—the slender 116-story, 400-meter residential Imperial Tower is designed to "confuse the wind."

This simply means that the extremely tall and thin tower will stand up to the forces of wind. Enhanced by sky gardens, designed to dampen wind eddying about the tower, the futuristic pencil-like structure will stand strong against a sudden gale.

 

AS+GG also designed the skyscraper to minimize its effects on climate change. Environmentally friendly features include rainwater harvesting, gray water recycling, and exterior cladding to limit solar heat gain...

Taiwanese Wind Tower is Covered with Thousands of Wind Turbines and LED Lights

Taiwanese Wind Tower is Covered with Thousands of Wind Turbines and LED Lights | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Beijing-based Decode Urbanism Office has designed a tower with a façade composed of multiple wind-driven generators.

 

Thousands of wind turbines will produce enough energy to power the entire building. At night, the diamond-shaped generators are lit with thousands of LED lights incorporated into the building envelope.

The 350-meter (1,150-foot) structure, in Taichung City, China, will house the city’s Department of Urban Development, as well as commercial activities.

The tower’s façade, inspired by the plum blossom — China and Taiwan's  national flower – reacts to changes in direction and intensity of the wind, creating a truly dynamic visual effect. Similarly, mechanical wind power generators have LEDs, illuminating the façade and producing a pulsating flow of light, whose intensity and color adjust to correspond to changes in temperature and season.

 

The wind harnessing capability, along with the lighting that responds to local atmospheric conditions, makes this conceptual tower a true “decoder of nature.”

Taiwanese Tower, mini turbine eoliche in facciata

Taiwanese Tower, mini turbine eoliche in facciata | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Il grattacielo di 350 metri trarrà la propria energia dai generatori eolici che rivestono l'involucro

Sorgerà a Taichung, città in piena espansione localizzata nell'isola di Taiwan, il nuovo grattacielo dinamico firmato dallo studio DUO (Decode Urbanism Office).
DINAMICA. Alta 350 metri, la torre – ad uso misto – sarà completamente ricoperta da un manto di migliaia mini turbine eoliche e si distinguerà per la silhouette ondulata, in grado di mutare a seconda della direzione del vento. Proprio così: come spiegano i progettisti cinesi di DUO “è terminata l'epoca degli edifici statici e immobili”. Oggi, le strutture sono in grado di reagire, come fossero dei veri e propri organismi autonomi. Nel caso della Taiwanese Tower, al mutare del vento le turbine eoliche si sposteranno di conseguenza, come una banderuola, modificando leggermente l'involucro, anche in funzione della quantità di luce e delle temperature.

[ Sofia, Bulgaria] In Progress: Red Apple Apartment Building / Aedes Studio

[ Sofia, Bulgaria] In Progress: Red Apple Apartment Building / Aedes Studio | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

The surrounding neighborhood consists mostly of apartment blocks that date back from the 70’s. The buildings are large with enough space in-between and plenty of greenery. Because the whole area is built in relatively short period of time and not very long ago, it lacks the typical historic layers of the city center. Here the connection to nature is direct enough, the access to all city-conveniences – fast enough and easy, what makes the area nice to dwell. In spite of that it still lacks history, (memories of) the past and atmosphere.

Free of clutter but filled with light, shadow and sculptural forms, filmmaker Matthew Donaldson takes you inside the minimalist masterpiece that Italian architect Claudio Silvestrin calls home. As part of NOWNESS’ In Residence series, this video sheds light  Silvestrin’s “reductive, contemplative, near-ecclesiastical spaces” that can be found across the globe – from Moscow to Majorca, and soon-to-be in Miami, where Silvestrin is currently designing a home from Kanye West that will undoubtedly exhibit many of his signature components.
