“Beam Drop”, an Anti-architecture Performance by Chris Burden (1985-2008) : socks-studio

“Beam Drop”, an Anti-architecture Performance by Chris Burden (1985-2008) : socks-studio | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
“Beam Drop Inhotim” is the recreation of an original work that artist Chris Burden displayed at Art Park (New York) in 1985 and that was destroyed three years later.

 

For twelve hours a crane dropped 71 junkyard beams from an height of 45 meters onto a fresh cement pit. The random fall of the beams echoes abstract expressionism gestural acts as Jackson Pollocks’ paintings and is equally the result of both the control of the artist and the chance.

 

The violence inherent in the beam’s falling recalls past extreme works of the seminal artist, namely: “Shoot”, a 1971 performance in which he asked a friend to shoot him in the arm inside a gallery, or the “anti-architecture” work Samson (1985), (read “Art against architecture: Chris Burden 1985′s Samson“, on Socks), a sculpture meant to millimetrically destroy the gallery it was installed in, each time a visitor entered. In the case of “Beam Drop”, the beams are like the artist’s body falling and crashing against Earth.

Architectural “iphoneography” / Lynette Jackson | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

According to Spillman Farmer Architects‘ blog “Speaking of Architecture“, Lynette Jackson aka Flickr user Page67_Lynette Jackson uses her iphone to document, design and publish images of the built environment around her through Instagram. Taking a series of images that zoom deeper and deeper into the nuances of architectural form and space, Jackson’s use of pop-art imagery and graphic tools bring out details that otherwise go unnoticed and creates a narrative about each individual work of architecture that she documents.

Nature-Embedded Retreats: Tea Houses by Swatt Miers Architects

Nature-Embedded Retreats: Tea Houses by Swatt Miers Architects | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

The idea for these minimalist Tea Houses was triggered by the need of a nature retreat, located not far from a family home in Silicon Valley, California. The creative team at Swatt Miers Architects was in charge with transforming a vision into reality, designing the three tea houses as perfect observation spots.

According to the official description provided by the project developers, each new tea house was created as a “transparent steel and glass pavilion, hovering like a lantern over the natural landscape. Cast-in-place concrete core elements anchor the pavilions, supporting steel channel rim joists, which cantilever beyond the cores to support the floor and roof planes. With its minimal footprint, the design treads lightly on the land, minimizing grading and preserving the delicate root systems of the native oaks“.

BLDGBLOG: Secret Soviet Cities

BLDGBLOG: Secret Soviet Cities | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

[T]he cities themselves were never shown on official maps produced by the Soviet regime. Implicated in the Cold War posture of producing weapons for the Soviet military-industrial complex, these cities were some of the most deeply secret and omitted places in Soviet geography. Those who worked in these places had special passes to live and leave, and were themselves occluded from public view. Most of the scientists and engineers who worked in the ZATOs were not allowed to reveal their place or purpose of employment.

Brute Force Architecture and its Discontents - etc | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

“Globalization destabilizes and redefines both the way architecture is produced and that which architecture produces. Architecture is no longer a patient transaction between known quantities that share cultures, no longer the manipulation of established possibilities, no longer a possible judgement in rational terms of investment and return”

Skandinavia’s largest architecture prize, Nykredit’s Architecture Prize of DKK 500,000, is this year awarded to the architectural practice COBE based in Copenhagen represented by architect, Dan Stubbergaard. In its choice the jury emphasised the fact that COBE spans the full professional spectrum from minor construction and urban space design to strategic planning and research.

 

Currently, COBE is most renowned for the design and realisation of the new Nørreport Train Station and is currently detailing the development of the Nordhavn harbour area – one of Scandinavia’s largest and most ambitious metropolitan development projects, says the chairman of the prize jury, Mette Kynne Frandsen, Architect and CEO.

25 Incredible Concert Halls Around the World

25 Incredible Concert Halls Around the World | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Wikipedia has an enormous list of Concert Halls around the world. Last night I went through all of them and selected 25 distinctive buildings that caught my eye.

 

This list is not exhaustive and was not compiled for a concert hall’s cultural, historical or architectural significance.

 

It is simply a visual tour around the world through the lens of concert halls; which are often considered important cultural landmarks of a city. Enjoy! And please feel free to share your favourite concert halls in the comments below.

Mizuta Museum of Art

Mizuta Museum of Art | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

The Mizuta Museum of Art is a 7,000sf building on a university campus in Japan designed to show works from a valuable collection of Ukiyo-e (Japanese woodcuts), while also being able to accommodate contemporary works and artistic production from the school and community.

 

The fragile nature of these prints requires a highly controlled and insulated environment. As the building closest to the campus entry, it also acts as a gateway building, providing information and displays about campus life.

 

Finally, its compressed but exposed site with seventeen existing tress and nine meter height limit could only yield a two story building with a dual programmatic role, museum and orientation center, each requiring direct access to the main campus walk.

Surface plancher et recours obligatoire à l’architecte : nouveau décret

Surface plancher et recours obligatoire à l’architecte : nouveau décret | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Le décret n°2012-677 du 7 mai 2012 apporte un correctif au seuil de surface au-delà duquel le recours à un architecte est obligatoire. Il fait une distinction entre emprise au sol et surface de plancher. La nouvelle règle de calcul a été intégrée à l’article R. 431-2 (V) du Code de l’urbanisme et est immédiatement applicable. Cette loi n’est cependant pas sans inquiéter les architectes.

A Miniature City Built with Metal Typography | Colossal

A Miniature City Built with Metal Typography | Colossal | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Type City is a recent artwork by artist Hong Seon Jang that uses pieces of movable type from a printing press to create an elaborate cityscape. It’s fascinating to watch as the need for printed books and typography wanes, the unused objects themselves are more frequently used as an actual medium. Jang also completed a much larger Type City in 2009. Also, if you liked this, make sure you watch the creation of Ephemicropolis by Peter Root, a city built from 100,000 staples.
