Logements Sociaux « Verts » : Une construction en CHANVRE au cœur de Paris

Logements Sociaux « Verts » : Une construction en CHANVRE au cœur de Paris | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

 

 

L’agence d’architecture durable « Atelier D » a entrepris la construction de logements sociaux « verts ». Leur particularité ? Ces logements sont éco-conçus, avec du béton de chanvre. Habituellement réservée aux habitations individuelles, cette technique de construction en chanvre est une première en France.

Le chanvre est une plante renouvelable qui pousse très vite, ne demande pas de traitement particulier et n’est pas gourmande en eau. En outre, le chanvre est un matériau sain, sans émanation toxique. Si on l’utilise régulièrement pour fabriquer du papier et du textile, le chanvre a gagné le secteur de la construction depuis plusieurs années. Le béton de chanvre est un mélange de chaux et de tiges de chanvre.Excellent isolant naturel, aux performances thermiques et acoustiques exceptionnelles, il est un matériau idéal pour limiter l’empreinte écologique des bâtiments.

[Santa Monica, California] Gehry Designs Mixed-Use Tower for Downtown

[Santa Monica, California] Gehry Designs Mixed-Use Tower for Downtown | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Developers M. David Paul Associates and the Worthe Real Estate Group have commissioned Frank Gehry to design a mixed-use hotel and residential tower in his hometown of Santa Monica, California. The 22-story “Ocean Avenue Project” aims to stimulate the coastal city’s economy with street-level restaurant and retail space below a 125-room hotel and 22-unit condominium tower topped with a rooftop observation deck. As for accommodating the car-centric lifestyle of the West Coast, resident and visitor parking will be available in a three-story subterranean garage beneath the tower. In addition, the developers plan to integrate a 36,000 square foot museum campus that will add a cultural perk to the development just North of its two-acre site.

 

Although this project looks promising, the 244-foot, Gehry-esque tower is currently pending approval from the City. A vote by the end of March will decide its fate.

Le couvent de la Tourette situé dans le Rhône offre ses murs de béton aux néons de l'artiste Eric Michel. Chaque année les frères dominicains du couvent signé Le Corbusier à Eveux, invitent un artiste d'aujourd'hui à dialoguer avec l'architecture."

"Les murs de bétons à l'architecture austère et dépouillée, où la lumière doit faire un effort pour s'immiscer par les quelques interstices du bâtiment."

MARSEILLE : Vieux Port Pavilion / Foster + Partners | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Saturday in Marseille, France, pedestrians and city officials joined Foster + Partners to celebrate the completion of the Vieux Port Pavilion at the mouth of Marseille’s World Heritage-listed harbor. Minimal, yet effective, this “discreet” intervention provides a new sheltered events space on the eastern edge of the port. With six slender pillars supporting its razor-thin profile, the polished 46 by 22 meter stainless steel canopy amplifies and reflects the surrounding movement of the harbor, creating a spectacle that encourages pedestrians to linger.

[VIDEO] The future will pose tremendous challenges to how architecture and cities are conceived

[VIDEO] The future will pose tremendous challenges to how architecture and cities are conceived | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

The future will pose tremendous challenges to how architecture and cities are conceived, requiring comprehensive and scalable solutions, often found outside of what we traditionally call “architecture”. So after hundreds of interviews with architects that we’ve conducted, we realized that in order to confront these challenges we needed to expand our focus. For the first time, we invited to our office an “architect” of life, Andrew Hessel, co-chair of theBiotechnology and Bioinformatics Program at Singularity University and leader in the field of synthetic biology (the design of life through the use of information technology).
