AD Classics: Villa Tugendhat / Mies van der Rohe

AD Classics: Villa Tugendhat / Mies van der Rohe | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

 

The Villa Tugendhat was commissioned by the wealthy newlyweds Grete & Fritz Tugendhat, a Jewish couple with family money from textile manufacturing companies in Brno. The couple met Mies van der Rohe in Berlin in 1927, and was already impressed by his design for the Zehlendorf house of Edward Fuchs. As fans of spacious homes with simple forms, Mies’ free plan method was perfect for the Tugendhats’ taste; however, he was not their only interest in an architect for their own home. They originally confronted Brno’s foremost modern architect at the time, Arnost Wiesner, but after visiting various projects by each architect, the Tugendhats ultimately went with Mies.

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 !

DÉLIRE architectural sur le tramway de Dijon, par le collectif Fakir

DÉLIRE architectural sur le tramway de Dijon, par le collectif Fakir | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Sans foi ni loi, le collectif Fakir, s'évertue depuis quatre ans à déverser sur l'agglomération de Dijon des tombereaux d'architectures fictives pleines de mauvais esprit et de sous-entendus douteux. Tellement que j'aurais presque honte de dire que j'en suis, de ce collectif. D'autant que cette semaine, "Le Moniteur" a fait un article sur nos conneries. Je vous le dis, la Presse va mal et la Grandeur de l'Architecture, pas mieux.

Architect, sculptor, painter, brilliant thinker of his time, the creator of an architecture based on social needs, one of the fathers of modern town planning and a master of the Modern Movement: Charles-Edouard Jeanneret-Gris, better known as Le Corbusier.

MAXXI Architettura, directed by Margherita Guccione, is focusing on this figure with Le Corbusier e l'Italia, curated by Marida Talamona and realised in partnership with the Fondation Le Corbusier, Paris.

With 320 original documents and 300 photographs in an exhibition that, adopting a chronological and thematic format, presents the influence of Italy on the training and work of the master; from the first trips early in the 20th century to the unbuilt projects for the Olivetti Electronic Calculation centre at Rho, and the hospital in Venice from the 1960s.

AD Classics: Chandigarh Secretariat / Le Corbusier

AD Classics: Chandigarh Secretariat / Le Corbusier | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
This AD Classic was done in collaboration with John Rizor.

 

Taking over from Albert Mayer, Le Corbusier produced a plan for Chandigarh on the foothills of the Himalayas that conformed to the modern city planning principles of Congrès International d’Architecture Moderne (CIAM), in terms of division of urban function, an anthropomorphic plan form, and a hierarchy of road and pedestrian networks, Inherently, the Secretariat building is the largest edifice in the Capitol Complex and is the headquarters of both the Punjab and Haryana governments.

 

Le Corbusier’s plan for the capitol consisted of four buildings (or “edifices”) and six monuments arranged on a single site, loosely conceptualized as three interlocking squares. Only three of these four buildings were ever realized (the High Court, the Legislative Assembly, and the Secretariat) and were designed to represent the major functions of democracy — the fourth building, the Governor’s Palace, was never built.

[ Vancouver ] Jameson House | Foster + Partners

[ Vancouver ] Jameson House | Foster + Partners | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Jameson House is a new 35-story mixed-use tower in the heart of Vancouver, and completed just at the end of last year, already the building is almost fully occupied. The project combines the restoration of heritage buildings with new construction: the lower level offices and shops tie into the existing streetscape to reinvigorate the downtown neighborhood, while the apartments above face dramatic views of the bay and create a new landmark on the skyline.

Fusing old and new, the site connects the city’s financial centre with its emerging creative hub, and the scheme integrates two 1920s Beaux Arts structures: the entire internal double-height volume of the A-listed Ceperley Rounsfell Building has been returned to its original configuration and the facade of the B-listed Royal Financial Building has been retained....

 

Sir Norman Foster said: “Vancouver has a spectacular location, surrounded by mountains and the sea. The design makes the most of the city’s fantastic natural setting, with balconies and deep bay windows looking out towards the landscape. Jameson House further develops a number of key themes that have been integral to our work for many years. The project combines restoration with new construction; it is high-density and mixed-use, offering a sustainable model for urban living; and it demonstrates innovation, both in its evolution of the high-rise building and its progressive environmental agenda.”

Architectes de l'URGENCE - Mastère de spécialisation

Architectes de l'URGENCE - Mastère de spécialisation | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Reconnue d'utilité publique, la Fondation Architectes de l'Urgence apporte aux populations touchées par une catastrophe une aide et une assistance technique, notamment dans les domaines de l'évaluation, de l'aide aux réfugiés, de la reconstruction,...

 

Les organismes amenés à intervenir suite à des catastrophes humanitaires dans le domaine de la construction sont confrontés à une pénurie de spécialistes. Au-delà de leur formation traditionnelle, en effet, les architectes, ingénieurs, chefs de projets, constructeurs de programmes de relogements, coordinateurs, doivent faire face à des situations chaotiques : routes et réseaux détruits, communication difficile ou impossible, administration inexistante, foncier non établi, sécurité aléatoire. Dans ce climat, ils doivent mettre les populations en sécurité, faire réintégrer certains bâtiments publics, en sécuriser d’autres et, le plus vite possible, reconstruire.
Pour répondre à ce besoin en ressources humaines, la fondation Architectes de l’urgence, particulièrement concernée, et l’Ecole Spéciale des Travaux Publics, ont mis sur pied un mastère spécialisé « Urgentiste Bâtiment et Infrastructures ». L’enseignement sera dispensé sur une année, par l’ESTP Paris.
Les grands thèmes de cette formation seront : L’autonomie et la survie, la géographie, comprenant notamment la climatologie, la vulcanologie, la sismologie, l’hydrologie…, le management et la gestion de programmes, la conception et les matériaux, le contexte international et la sécurité.

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.
