Enter THE !!!!!!!!!!!!! Competition…!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Enter THE !!!!!!!!!!!!! Competition…!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Reality Cues, the firm that brought you the Le Cor(nudie)r Competition, is back with a new collage challenge: create provocative architectural images that make us shout, “OMG!!!!!!!!!”

 

The competition is based around eight provided images whose architectural content entrants are asked to redefine or even insert new architecture of their own. According to the brief, “Within the culture of reposting, reblogging, and retweeting is the opportunity to modify and subvert prevailing tendencies. Combine this with the ease with which anyone can alter images to create virtual worlds, and you are left with an increasingly fuzzy area between the so-called virtual and real.” Judging by the examples, The Architecture of OMG has more to do the absurd manipulation of images and architecture than with the representation of buildings. Fuzzy indeed.


The jury will be comprised of Juergen Mayer H. of J. Mayer H. Architecture, Shelly Johnson of Graffiti Lab, Kelsey Keith of Dwell Magazine, Kelsey Camplbell Dollaghan of Fast Company, Sammy Medina of Architizer, and Chris Barley the Future Predictor. The top collages will take home some very unique prizes. Please email your submissions to the Reality Cues Librarian in JPEG or GIF formats, maintain the pixel and resolution of the original. Include a title and your name to be posted along with the image on Reality Cues and Graffiti Lab. All submission are due by May 31st, 2012. Need some inspiration? See some more of Reality Cues’ examples below.

El dibujo como herramienta para estudiar la ciudad II

El dibujo como herramienta para estudiar la ciudad II | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

En un post reciente, hablamos de la importancia del dibujo como herramienta para estudiar, conocer y comprender las ciudades. Manuel Arenas y Guillem Carabí comparten aquí nuevamente algunos dibujos de Barcelona, que forman parte de la asignatura Visions Urbanes de la ESARQ UIC.

 

Por eso consideramos el dibujo como una importante herramienta para nuestro máster Barcelona Relacional, ya que a través de él, establecemos una relación directa con la ciudad, al intentar entenderla e interpretarla, para luego reflejarla por medio del dibujo.

Purpose of the study is to design two summer homes with guest houses, overlooking the sea and neighboring island of Antiparos. The residences located on the highest point of the lot. The courtyards constitute the conjunctive element of residences. Wide stairs lead to landings in the large viewing “plateaus”, traversing indoors and outdoors spaces. Planting is enhanced on roofs and intermediate yards.

At the Lina Bo Bardi-designed Teatro Oficina, we met with the company's animator-in-chief — a Tropicalist convinced that all architecture could become a space for performance, if it allowed itself to be cannibalised by theatre.

Celles-ci imposent notamment aux « compaillons » de se former à la construction paille ou d’obtenir un VAE, à accompagner d’un suivi d'expérience sur deux années.

Le Courrier de l'Architecte | Ville 3.0 - Vers une nouvelle citoyenneté | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Une nouvelle citoyenneté est en train de naitre, celle de la révolution numérique, de l’économie cognitive, de l’hyperUrbain... J'ai choisit d'illustrer ce que pourrait être la ville si les hommes décidaient, dans un futur indéfini, d'aller vivre ailleurs, pour fonder une ville s'appuyant sur ces nouvelles relations que propose internet.

El nuevo Manhattan en el Desierto de Arabia

El nuevo Manhattan en el Desierto de Arabia | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

rcilla, Agua, Barro y Arena son los cuatro ingredientes que se usaron para construír los primeros rascacielos en todo el mundo.

 

La primera ciudad de rascacielos y llamada así desde el siglo XVI: Shibam (Yemen), es uno de los ejemplos más antiguos y mejores de planificación urbana basada en el principio de la construcción vertical. Hoy vuelve a elevarse esta antigüedad a 30 metros de altura, para crear la ciudad de las grandes estructuras, que tiene el apodo de “Manhattan del Desierto”.

Sunset Triangle Plaza: Los Angeles' First Street-to-Plaza Conversion - Core77

Sunset Triangle Plaza: Los Angeles' First Street-to-Plaza Conversion - Core77 | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
What does it take to change the mind of a city? Concerted effort and pilot projects that prove the concept, says Streets for People's Margot Ocanas and Anna Peccianti, and Frank Clementi of Rios Clementi Hale Studios.

 

The Sunset Triangle Plaza is Los Angeles' first street-to-plaza project. It was created by Streets for People (S4P), an initiative of the City of Los Angeles City Planning Commission in partnership with the County Department of Public Health.

 

Designed by Clementi, this one-year demonstration project closed down a redundant street where Sunset and Griffith Park Boulevards meet and opened it up for pedestrian use. The plaza opened two months ago to much excitement.

#Barcelona - Poblenou : MIZIEN Architects | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Poblenou, a former industrial district of Barcelona, has been transformed in the 22 @ technology district during the last decade: a new model of compact city, where innovative companies co-exist with research, training and tech transfer centers, as well as housing, facilities, green areas and industrial heritage. Gaes, a hearing aid company in the 22 @, represents the case of an old Catalan industry in Poblenou that has become during the same period a multinational corporation with an industrial integrated model of research, clean production and marketing.

Después de lo andado, ni guetos urbanos, ni
periféricos urbanos, ni urbanismos de la desesperación. Ni urbanismo formal, ni urbanismo informal.

Partimos de la eliminación conceptual de los “ellos” y los “nosotros” y de cualquier tipo de confrontación ideológica para pensar y hacer desde el “todos”.

Masterplan for the Honghe Project / AECOM | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Commissioned by the Golden Harbor Group, the design for the masterplan for the Honghe project by AECOM is aimed to help Longgang, an emerging area of Shenzhen, to function positively on the city’s renovation and upgrading. Located in a new rising area, the project covers the south area of the main venue for last year’s University Games. Their design will not only become the complex of services in east Shenzhen, but will lead the development of sports and mice industries, which will also be important for Shenzhen to become the base radiation to the development of east Guangdong Province.

Vis[LE] : architecture, urbanisme, paysage, patrimoine...: VIS[LE] VOYAGE | LA PISCINE JOSEPHINE BAKER | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Depuis les quais de la Seine, cette péniche de 90 m de long ne nous échappe pas des yeux. Au niveau de la bibliothèque Nationale François Mitterrand, vous pouvez découvrir cette drôle de péniche qui abrite une piscine ! Suite à la création de Paris Plage, cette piscine est imaginée, mais elle a connu quelques malchances : un incendie fin 2006 et une mauvaise manœuvre technique qui a failli la faire couler... Cependant, elle offre un cadre exceptionnel pour nager. Et l'été, sa toiture se rétracte pour laisser apparaître le soleil.
