Mardi 30 juin, les élus parisiens ont validé le projet de la Tour Triangle. Une décision qui n’empêche pas les crispations autour d’un projet ardemment défendu par la Maire de Paris, Anne Hidalgo. Pour dépolitiser le débat, nous avons demandé à Pierre-Arnaud Descotes et Lucie Olivier, deux architectes indépendants, ce qu’ils pensent de cette tour censée culminer à 180 mètres de hauteur.

Japan scraps Zaha Hadid's Tokyo 2020 Olympic Stadium

Japan scraps Zaha Hadid's Tokyo 2020 Olympic Stadium | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Zaha Hadid's controversial plans for the 2020 Olympic Stadium in Tokyo have been scrapped


Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe has announced that the design of the stadium will be started again from scratch due to spiralling costs, according to the Guardian.


"We have decided to go back to the start on the Tokyo Olympics-Paralympics stadium plan, and start over from zero," Abe told reporters. "I have been listening to the voices of the people for about a month now, thinking about the possibility of a review."


Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA) also released a statement confirming the news that the plans are being reviewed:


"Our teams in Japan and the UK have been working hard with the Japan Sports Council to design a new National Stadium that would be ready to host the Rugby World Cup in 2019, the Tokyo 2020 Games and meet the need for a new home for Japanese sport for the next 50 to 100 years."

L’espace « Nouvelle GÉNÉRATION » de la BPI (BBF) | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Conception de l'espace Nouvelle génération prévu pour réunir une offre commune à la BPI et au musée d'art moderne du Centre PompidouContexte et projet

Dans le cadre de son projet de réaménagement, la BPI (Bibliothèque Publique d'Information) souhaite reconsidérer sa connexion avec le Centre Pompidou. Le département Nouvelle Génération situé sur la mezzanine Nord du centre est repensé, les escalators sont supprimés, l'ensemble de l'espace est dédié à une offre de médiation d'un nouveau type.

La BPI, en accord avec le Centre Pompidou, repense cet espace pour y créer une offre dédiée à l'ensemble des visiteurs du centre, montrant les connexions possibles entre un musée et une bibliothèque contemporaine.

Abcd imagine une offre de médiation singulière où bibliothèque et musée se conjugue. L'espace est conçu pour être régulièrement approprié par des intervenants invités par la bibliothèque et pour recevoir des offres événementielles.

"BABY Rems" and the Small World of Architecture INTERSHIPS

"BABY Rems" and the Small World of Architecture INTERSHIPS | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

The world of architecture is small. So small in fact, that Rem Koolhaas has been credited with the creation of over forty practices worldwide, led by the likes of Zaha Hadid and Bjarke Ingels. Dubbed “Baby Rems” by Metropolis Magazine, this Koolhaas effect is hardly an isolated pattern, with manifestations far beyond the walls of OMA. The phenomenon has dominated the world of architecture, assisted by the prevalence and increasing necessity of internships for burgeoning architects.

No heels! And better no mini-skirts! Be sporty and casual. Only this way you can best enjoy one of the Milan Expo’s top experiences: the Brazilian Pavilion. 

Conceived as light and open structure that supports nothing else but a huge trampoline net, the Brazilian Pavilion welcomes everybody into its unique playground. Such a chance in fact to become a joyful and carefree child and to forget (at least for a moment) to be a grown-up.

The Al Bahr Towers' Sustainable Geometric Façades React To Solar Rays

The Al Bahr Towers' Sustainable Geometric Façades React To Solar Rays | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

With year-round sunny skies and an average temperature of 100+ degrees Fahrenheit from June through September, Abu Dhabi presents quite a challenge to architects who want to keep their buildings cool. So, when designing the 25-story twin Al Bahr TowersAedas Architects developed a state-of-the-art façade that not only draws inspiration from the region's heritage, but reacts to the path of the sun.


Based on the concept of adaptive flowers and the "mashrabiya" (the wooden lattice shading screen used in traditional Arabic architecture), the towers are covered in gigantic screens composed of a geometric pattern containing more than 2,098 dynamic units that can expand and contract with the sun—essentially creating the world's largest mechanized solar parasol. Not to mention, the bio-inspired façades look particularly striking as they soar into the sky.

Rogers Stirk Harbour to design conservation facility for LOUVRE | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
A team headed up by British firm Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners has been selected to design a new conservation and storage centre for the Musée du Louvre


Located 200 kilometres north of Paris in Liévin, the 20,000-square-metre facility will be located a short distance away from the French art museum's recently completed outpost, the Louvre-Lens.
