Newly Opened Archigram-esque Research Station “Walks” Across The Antarctic

Newly Opened Archigram-esque Research Station “Walks” Across The Antarctic | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Call it this generation’s “Walking City.” Halley VI, the latest iteration of Britain’s Halley Antarctic research stations, is now fully operational—and it walks, sort of. Halley VI opened today on the centennial commemoration of the first British Antarctic expeditions on the Brunt Ice Shelf,  which launched an entirely new and incredibly fertile avenue of scientific research exploring the Earth’s near-space atmosphere. Designed by Hugh Broughton Architects, the new “re-locatable”—i.e. “movable”—facility is the first of its kind in the world

[Sweden ] Henning Larsen architects: Umea Art Museum

[Sweden ] Henning Larsen architects: Umea Art Museum | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

located in a university town in sweden, the umea art museum is part of a greater complex of artistic institutes and exhibition facilities. the collaboration 
between danish firm henning larsen architects and white arkitekter is an endeavor of ambition; the building seeks to put into dialogue art, design and 
architecture so as to secure umea as a site of critical creative discourse. the museum is unique in its tower-like form, creating a protruding silhouette by 
the umeälven river. large, square exhibition spaces are free of structural elements and plentiful in glazing so as to allow ample natural light to filter 
through the space. while the interiors provide a tabula rasa to accomodate the ever-changing programs of both contemporary and historically significant art, 
the exterior maintains an aesthetic character that is at once warm and replete with material dynamism. the arts campus buildings, comprised of the 
academy of fine arts, the institute of design and the new school of architecture, are clad in vertical louvres of siberian larch with a multiplicity of directional grain. 
the verticality of the facade is broken only by the rhythm of large windows and a glass middle floor. the museum is a publicly accessible and forges a landmark 
for interdisciplinary study to proliferate.

AD Classics: Maison du Bresil / Le Corbusier | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Created as a microcosm of Brazilian life and culture, Maison du Bresil is a significant example of Le Corbusier’s high-density residential design. Inaugurated in 1959, it is one of twenty-three international residences at the Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris, located in the heart of Paris. As the “House of Brazil”, the building acts as both a residence hall for Brazilian academics, students, teachers, and artists, and as a hub for Brazilian culture, by providing exhibition spaces and archival resources. Notably, the building has provided residence to famous Brazilians, such as the renowned journalist Barroso Zózimo do Amaral.

‘The City That Never Was’ Symposium

‘The City That Never Was’ Symposium | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Organized by Christopher Marcinkoski and Javier Arpa, in cooperation with theArchitectural League of New York, ‘The City That Never Was’ symposium will be taking place Friday, February 22, from 9:00am-5:30pm EST at the Scholastic Building in New York. The one day event will use the current economic and housing crisis in Spain as a lens to reconsider how planners, designers, politicians, and financiers conceive of and realize large-scale contemporary urbanization and settlement. It will be organized through four primary themes — infrastructure, waste, landscape, and instant urbanism – in order to explore new possibilities for how future patterns of urbanization can be conceived, financed, planned, deployed, and inhabited.

[CHINA] Kengo Kuma Diseña Museo de la Academia de Arte en Xiangshan

[CHINA] Kengo Kuma Diseña Museo de la Academia de Arte en Xiangshan | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Para avanzar en la promoción de la educación artística, la Academia Central de Bellas Artes de Beijing y la Academia China de Arte en Xiangshan han anunciado planes para construir una nueva universidad en las afueras de Hangzhou para la primavera de 2014. Diseñado por Kengo Kuma & Associates, el Museo de la Academia China de Arte armonizará con la topografía exuberante y se resiste a modificar las pendientes existentes para dar cabida a las instalaciones de 4.936 m2. En su lugar, la configuración del museo imitará el patrón en forma de rombo que se descubrió dentro de las curvas de nivel, generando un espacio de exposición fluido con plantas en distintos niveles y galerías parcialmente exteriores.

[New York] BIG’s West 57th “Pyramid” Wins Final Approval

[New York] BIG’s West 57th “Pyramid” Wins Final Approval | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

After an “arduous” public review and a heated debate over affordable housing, New York’s City Council has unanimously awarded final approval to BIG’s tetrahedral-shaped West 57th apartment building in Manhattan. As reported by Crain’s New York Business, a compromise has been made to include 173 affordable housing units within the 32-story, 750-unit residential building and the neighboring industrial building that will be converted into 100 additional rental apartments. As you may recall, the community board and Councilwoman Gail Brewer initially threatened to “torpedo the project” if the apartments were only made affordable for a 35 year period. However, Durst apparently won them over by contributing one million dollars into an affordable housing fund.
