association concert urbain's insight:


The presented research project aims to investigate both the possibilities and the impact of integrating material behaviour and robotic fabrication in architectural design, using the example of lightweight plywood timber construction, as well as the possibilities of computational and biomimetic design methods for integrated and context oriented design strategies incorporating self organising material effects of form finding and the production logic of robotic fabrication.

100 anys de La Pedrera...

 

La Pedrera celebrates hundred years of the signature of the document certifying its works’ completion (on 31 October 1912) and the Fundació CatalunyaCaixa wants to celebrate it with all the residents of the city and visitors.
To commemorate the centenary, a programme of activities has been put together that is a blend of the essentially festive occasions typical of any celebration together with various cultural and artistic events related to the singular nature of a monumental building such as La Pedrera, designed by the architect Antoni Gaudí.

Muere Oscar Niemeyer

Muere Oscar Niemeyer | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

 

Hoy la Arquitectura está de luto. El Arquitecto brasilero Oscar Niemeyer que ya se encontraba desde hace unas semanas en el Hospital Samaritano de Río de Janeiro ha fallecido a raíz de un problema respiratorio que no pudo resistir.

 

Oscar Ribeiro de Almeida de Niemeyer Soares vivió 104 años en los cuales nos dejó mucho más que una vida ejemplar y llena de intensidad. Fue el único arquitecto brasilero, y probablemente uno de los pocos en el mundo, conocido por todas las personas provenientes de todas las clases sociales de un país tan inmenso y poblado como Brasil.

 

Niemeyer fue sin lugar a dudas un ciudadano brasilero que a través de su arquitectura se proyecto a todo el mundo.

 

Como dijmos al principio, la arquitectura latinoamericana y la arquitectura mundial está de luto el día de hoy.

Paul Rudolph’s Brutalism, reworked, at UMass Dartmouth

Paul Rudolph’s Brutalism, reworked, at UMass Dartmouth | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

 

Designed in the late 1960s by one of the most inventive architects in American history, Paul Rudolph — no, he wasn’t a Satanist, at least as far as I know — the campus is a powerful, muscular pile of raw concrete. It’s an example of an architectural style that’s known, for better or worse, as Brutalism.

polis: A Scopitone, New York and Two Frenchmen... ;-) | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

 

In the foreword to his 1929 book, "The City of To-Morrow and its Planning," architect Le Corbusier recalls a conversation with the editor of New York Magazine, in which the latter declared: "In two hundred years Americans will be coming over to Europe to admire the logical productions of modern France, while the French will be standing in astonishment before the romantic sky-scrapers of New York."

Oscar Niemeyer obituary

Oscar Niemeyer obituary | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

 

Eminent modern architect renowned as 'the man who built Brasilia' has died at the age of 104...

 

There was a story told by the mayor of the town of Niterói, across the bay from Rio de Janeiro, that expresses perfectly the epic stature of the Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer, who has died aged 104. In the spring of 1992, after Niemeyer's first visit to the seafront site chosen for the town's new museum of contemporary art, Mayor Jorge Roberto Silveira took Niemeyer and his colleagues to a restaurant for lunch. During the meal, Niemeyer described his vision of the museum "rising upward, like a flower, or a bird".
