Parcours d'architecture : un autre regard sur le patrimoine parisien - Paris.fr

Parcours d'architecture : un autre regard sur le patrimoine parisien - Paris.fr | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Les parcours d’architecture vous invitent à la découverte d’édifices remarquables et éléments d'architecture situés à l’écart des circuits traditionnels du patrimoine monumental. Centrés sur l’histoire d’un quartier ou d’un paysage singulier, ils proposent la vision d’architectures plus familières et parfois plus contemporaines que celles habituellement protégées au titre des monuments historiques.
Pour une très large part, ces parcours s’appuient sur la concertation et le travail réalisés en 2003 à l’occasion de la révision du Plan local d’urbanisme (P.L.U.) avec les Parisiennes et les Parisiens.
La mise en lumière de ce “nouveau patrimoine”, la prise de conscience de son importance à l’échelle du quartier ou de la Ville et de l’attachement que lui portent ses habitants doivent permettre de mieux le protéger et de mieux le faire connaître.

Vessel => 13th Venice Architecture Biennale O’DONNELL + TUOMEY ARCHITECTS

Vessel => 13th Venice Architecture Biennale O’DONNELL + TUOMEY ARCHITECTS | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

The word vessel is suggestive of embodiment, enshrinement and containment. It carries associations with craft and circulation. Airship, boat, blood vessel, utensil.

Vessel is a site-specific response to the theme of Common Ground, a plank-stacked structure in conversation with the layered brick construction of the Corderie. Vessel is a contemplative space hollowed out of solid matter, a light funnel, a lantern chamber, and a passage leading towards our common ground.

Sustainable Architecture: The International Style of the 21st Century

Sustainable Architecture: The International Style of the 21st Century | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

For more than a century what we know of as Modern Architecture has spread and flourished in every corner of the globe. Though the term International Style was not popularized until the 1930s architects the world over had been discovering the ways in which modern technologies and materials made possible by the industrial age could be put to use in the art of building since well before the turn of the last century. Starting with such great architects as Frank Lloyd Wright, Louis Sullivan, Philip Johnson, Walter Gropius, Le Corbusier, and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, the Modern movement in architecture was, and is still, an expression of man’s conquest over his environment; his ability to place the exact same building in any city on any continent anywhere in the world and have it function, look, and feel the exact same. It was the homogenization of architecture, and it was a great fault in human history.

Sustainable Architecture: The International Style of the 21st Century
Jemma Tanner's curator insight, October 28, 2013 11:32 PM

This article gave me an idea for a design task activity consisting of making your own sustainable building. If I were to ever create this activity I'd probably find an old building in the city that was going to be knocked down and create a story that the students had to design the replacement. I'd give criteria based around sustainable practices as well as what functions the building must have. The main focus I'd give them would be that the building needs to meet the needs of the residents without compromising future generations. From this resource I would take the three Ps mention - Purpose (does it fulfill the purpose for which it was designed), Physical (does it achieve the physical requirements given) and Pleasing (does it look good). If I really wanted to extend this task I could create a budget for the building in which the students would have to manage during its creation. I'd definitely do this as a group task because collaboration between students always generates more ideas.

4 équipes internationales pour Paris Rive Gauche

4 équipes internationales pour Paris Rive Gauche | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Paris Rive Gauche
Paris Rive Gauche est une opération d’aménagement urbain importante engagée il y a près de vingt ans, à partir de grandes friches ferroviaires ou industrielles, pour la plupart publiques, situées dans le 13ème arrondissement en bord de Seine. Le site, occupé depuis la première moitié du XIXème s iècle par les voies ferrées qui s’y sont ensuite développées jusqu’au milieu du XXème, était en quasi- totalité voué à l’activité ferroviaire. La coupure générée par cette présence a conduit à isoler les bords de Seine du reste de l’arrondissement, arrondissement dont la rue du Chevaleret constitue encore une frontière pour de nombreux habitants.

 

Les projets
La forte attractivité de Paris s’est concrétisée par la très grande qualité de la consultation qui a duré une année avec un intérêt avéré des 4 équipes internationales qui y ont répondu, constituée d’investisseurs et promoteurs solides associés à des architectes de grand renom réunissant des compétences françaises, européennes et nord américaines. Bertrand Delanoë, maire de Paris a tenu à ce qu’une exposition puisse se tenir au Pavillon de l’Arsenal présentant le travail des 4 équipes en lice : o Buelens avec Neutelings Riedijk Architects, o Ivanhoé Cambridge et Hines avec Ateliers Jean Nouvel, o Tishman Speyer avec Arquitectonica o Bouygues Immobilier et The Carlyle Group avec Atelier Elisabeth et Christian de Portzamparc.

Climate-Proofing Urban Areas with Floating Housing

Climate-Proofing Urban Areas with Floating Housing | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

The wave of floods that hit Britain in April focused attention, once again, on the vulnerability of homes in low-lying areas...

 

But what if a house could simply rise and fall with the waters? That’s the vision of Baca Architects, designers of the UK’s first ‘amphibious house’, which has just received planning permission for a site near Marlow, in Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Thames.

The lightweight, timber-framed structure sits on a floating concrete base that is built within a fixed ‘wet dock’ foundation. In the event of a flood, the concrete base rises up as the dock fills with water, ensuring the house floats safely above the waves. The base effectively acts as a free-floating pontoon, and should have a lifetime of around 100 years before needing renewal or replacement.

 

Climate proofing’ urban areas is a growing area of focus for architects and planners. Amphibious architecture looks set to join rain gardens, green roofs and permeable paving in the array of techniques available...

Official SketchUp Blog: Modeling SketchUp roofs on a click with Build Edge PLAN

Official SketchUp Blog: Modeling SketchUp roofs on a click with Build Edge PLAN | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

 

If you’ve ever taught someone to use SketchUp, you’ve probably drawn the basic SketchUp house and then breezed over the details when it comes to detailing the roof. The truth is that designing roofs is not always a straightforward task, even for experienced modelers.

 

We’ve explored some solutions for boosting roof design productivity on this blog, and today we’re happy to share a new plugin, Build Edge PLAN, that employs a bit of BIM for quickly creating dynamic walls and roofs. Here’s a quick look at how it works, courtesy of Aaron from Build Edge...

Happy Birthday Renzo Piano!

Happy Birthday Renzo Piano! | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

 

 

“Architecture is art, but art vastly contaminated by many other things. Contaminated in the best sense of the word – fed, fertilised by many things.” - Renzo Piano

 

 

Renzo Piano, the Pritzker-Prize Laureate born in Genoa, Italy, turns 75 today. While Piano was originally expected to follow the family tradition of building, Renzo rebelled to study architecture in Milan. Even so, to this day, Piano maintains a healthy skepticism of academia; indeed, craftsmanship and experimentation are both pillars at the Renzo Piano Building Workshop.
