Hoto Fudo | Takeshi Hosaka Architects | Project | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
This is a building like inside and outside. The project was planned on the site with Mt. Fuji rising closely in the south and the two sides facing the trunk roads. This building seems to belong to such nature objects as mountains and clouds.

 

 

Ma prochaine visite sera pour Takeshi fin novembre 2012.

Enchantée d'être reçue par ce jeune  Architecte  qui construit comme on écrit un poème.

City Hall Várzea Paulista Competition Entry / Brazilian Architects

City Hall Várzea Paulista Competition Entry / Brazilian Architects | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

 

Designed by Ana Cecília Tourinho, Analu Brandão, Gabriel Kozlowski, and Beni Barzellai, their competition entry for the City Hall Várzea Paulista creates a unity among all the planned projects for the downtown of Várzea Paulista. By proposing an infrastructural ring, the project functions as a public connector to embrace the existing green space and north and south. Connected to the public transportation system, it distributes and negotiates the confluence and flow of pedestrians while building a coherent image of the city’s entry. More images and architects’ description after the break.

Paris en 2037

Paris en 2037 | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Ils sont jeunes, inventifs, curieux et sans doute un peu «fous» aussi. Ne résistant pas au plaisir de voir toujours plus loin - soit un quart de siècle en avant -, le Figaroscope a demandé aux architectes les plus prometteurs du moment de plancher sur le Paris de 2037. Sans se brider, huit agences ont imaginé leur quartier rêvé, la métamorphose d'un monument ou l'irruption de quasi-ovnis dans la capitale. Attention les yeux !

Berlin - Habitats autogérés et immeubles coopératifs, un remède à la crise immobilière

Berlin - Habitats autogérés et immeubles coopératifs, un remède à la crise immobilière | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Et si pour échapper au marché spéculatif de l’immobilier, les habitants se regroupaient en coopérative ? C’est le pari que font une partie des Berlinois face à l’envolée des prix des loyers. Parce qu’il est de moins en moins facile de se loger dans la capitale allemande, des coopératives investissent dans des constructions communautaires accessibles aux habitants qui ne disposent pas d’apport financier. Des projets qui proposent une alternative à la propriété individuelle.

CO2ngress Gateway Towers will Scrub your Carbon Emissions

CO2ngress Gateway Towers will Scrub your Carbon Emissions | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

 

On any given day around 77,000 carbon emitting vehicles pass through Congress Parkway Interchange in Chicago, Illinois. This can be deemed as surprisingly high if you consider that a European motorway will typically take 20-180,000 cars per day compared to one inner-city road. The parkway now stands as a monument to unnecessary urban car reliance and vehicle-driven air pollution which is both an eyesore and a reputational blemish for the planners in the Windy City. The problem is international, but congestion hotbeds such as this need to be alleviated to manageable levels in the short term and tackled strongly over time.

Fear not as there are now plans (from the architects Danny Mui and Benjamin Sahagun) to embellish the junction with the striking CO2ngress Gateway Towers but how are they solving the problem and not just an interesting distract from it?

Exclusivement consacrée à la production des maisons et ateliers conçus par Paul Chemetov en cinquante ans, de 1962 à aujourd’hui, l’exposition parisienne « Chacun sa maison » apporte un nouvel éclairage sur un architecte que l’on connait davantage à travers ses gros projets.

 

En plus, on me souffle à l'oreille que Paul Chemetov sera en conférence à l'Ecole Supérieure d'Architecture de Lyon le  9 octobre à 18h. Courez-y.

La casa sottoterra a impatto zero di Gary Neville

La casa sottoterra a impatto zero di Gary Neville | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Un recente progetto in Inghilterra prevede la realizzazione di un’abitazione che non sarà solo ecologica ma anche perfettamente in armonia con il paesaggio.L’eco progetto è quello di una casa green e a zero emissioni di carbonio. Con un tetto che si adagia all’altezza dei prati, la “eco-home” sorgerà tra i pendii e le colline inglesi vicine alla città di Bolton. La struttura, che richiama la sagoma di un fiore ed è stata ironicamente paragonata alla casa dei Teletubbies, sarà quasi totalmente realizzata sottoterra, seguendo, con gli elementi di copertura, i declivi delle brughiere del West Pennine Moors.

The Rise of Design/Build Architecture Inspires “All Hale” Love Story

The Rise of Design/Build Architecture Inspires “All Hale” Love Story | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

 

 

All Hale, a new film written by Anita Banerji, follows the story of college student Alice Walker who finds herself in a small town in Hale County, Alabama building a home for a family that is going through personal and financial hardship. The movie is filmed on location, with a variety of unique Hale County architecture serving as the backdrop for a story that rekindles a love for “home-grown architecture”. At a time when so much emphasis is focused on “starchitects” and the “Bilbao effect”, the story of this movie has a social agenda that highlights the backlash to this phenomena: the rising trend of design/build architecture.
