These DRONE Photographs Reveal the Hidden Geometries of Late Soviet Modernism

These DRONE Photographs Reveal the Hidden Geometries of Late Soviet Modernism | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Though the ahistorical dogma of modernism would seem a perfect fit for the Soviet Union’s mandated break with traditions, the architectural history of the USSR was somewhat more complex. Stalin’s neoclassically-inflected socialist realism superseded the constructivist heyday of the early Soviet Union, only to be replaced by a return to modernism under Khrushchev, facilitated by an opening to the West. Architectural photographers Denis Esakov and Dmitry Vasilenko recently used a drone to capture photographs of several landmark structures of the Khrushchev-era return to modernism, focusing on how these aerial views reinforce their rational geometries and regimented forms. Until the recent advent of satellite imagery and commercially available drones, these were views that were only ever seen by the architects, and the officials who reviewed the plans. Even so, the photographer notes that these methodical forms must have been very attractive to the state officers tasked with implementing Khrushchev’s mandated aesthetic.

HILLSIDE RETREAT 405 hotel rooms built entirely in bamboo and stone

HILLSIDE RETREAT 405 hotel rooms built entirely in bamboo and stone | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Designed on a steeply contoured irregular shaped site overlooking a valley and hills beyond, Hillside Retreat 405 merges its 400 hotel rooms into the existing landscape of its site. Proposed to be built entirely in bamboo and stone the rooms are arranged in groups of 8 to 12 in individual structures interspersed with landscaped spaces along the prevailing site contours without any land cutting. The stilted buildings leave the natural landscape almost untouched allowing each room a clear view of the valley and hills towards the northern side of the plot. Located in Coorg district of southern India with average temperatures of 35°C the orientation of the rooms minimizes heat gain into them. Locally available bamboo and stone form sustainable building materials for the project. The layout is created in an organic manner that allows for variation in the way its spaces are perceived. Each of the room blocks in further fragmented by variation in its internal spaces. The entire resort is perceived as minimal intervention in the existing landscape by the layout and the material palette of the built forms that homogenously integrate themselves with the site. Vehicular movement is restricted to one part of the site from which electric golf carts would be made available for movement within the resort and its facilities. Hillside Retreat 405 is a sustainable design solution that is a cohesive result of its layout, its materials and its contextually to its site and location. The design explores relationships between built spaces and open spaces connecting them and integrating them in a homogenous manner.

Drawings and Visions by (Other) Italian FUTURIST Architects – – SOCKS

Drawings and Visions by (Other) Italian FUTURIST Architects – – SOCKS | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
In 1914 Antonio Sant’Elia signed the “Manifesto per un’architettura futurista“, a text coming a few years later the more known “Manifesto del Futurismo” (1909) and “Manifesto dei pittori futuristi” (1910). Whereas the basic concepts of Futurist Architecture follow the general lines given by previous Futurist Manifestos (refuse of the past, magnification of dynamism, opposition to academism), there are several points which refer to the specificity of architectural language and express interesting views.

One is about the idea of an architecture which is not meant to last: “Houses will endure less than us. Every generation must build its own city”: even if this sentence seems to collide with Sant’Elia’s drawing for indeed massive and complex buildings, it’s an original concept in the panorama of Western architecture.

Another point is the claim for an architecture which might be defined “ugly”, (“The house of concrete, glass and steel, stripped of paintings and sculpture, rich only in the innate beauty of its lines and relief, extraordinarily “ugly” in its mechanical simplicity“): the refuse of the aestethization of the built environment, where aestetization for Sant’Elia mostly meant “decoration”.


Antonio Sant’Elia is of course the most known Italian architect embodying the term “Futurist”, but he has not been the only one and his visionary drawings inspired several disciples.

These visions have all in common the research for a new language suitable to new typologies: factories, power plants, train and airplanes stations, infrastructures, and whole metropolis; a language which, in Futurist thinking, should have refused to find its roots into the monuments of the past and be autonomous from any previous cultural reference.

Signe des temps ! Un collectif d'archis remporte le Turner Prize... | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Le collectif d'architectes londonien Assemble a remporté lundi le prestigieux prix Turner pour ses projets en collaboration avec les habitants du quartier de Granby Four Streets à Liverpool, qui visent à redonner vie à cette zone défavorisée.

L'artiste Kim Gordon a remis au collectif ce prix doté de 25.000 livres (34.700 euros) à la galerie Tramway de Glasgow, en Écosse, où sont exposées depuis début octobre les oeuvres des quatre artistes finalistes.

Décerné depuis 1984, le prix, qui porte le nom du peintre William Turner, récompense chaque année un artiste de moins de cinquante ans né, vivant ou travaillant en Grande-Bretagne. C'est la première fois qu'un groupe aussi large (Assemble compte 18 membres, tous dans leur vingtaine) le remporte.

Le jury a considéré qu'Assemble se plaçait dans la lignée d'une "longue tradition d'initiatives artistiques et collectives qui expérimentent dans les domaines de l'art, du design et de l'architecture".

Leur projet porte sur la rénovation de dix maisons victoriennes à Granby, un quartier de Liverpool longtemps abandonné par les pouvoirs publics et dont les derniers habitants se sont battus pour le faire revivre.

Selon le jury, les membres d'Assemble offrent ainsi des "modèles alternatifs de fonctionnement des sociétés".

Polish festival identity references Le Corbusier's MODULOR Man | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Polish design studio UVMW has created a visual identity for Warsaw's Beton Film Festival based on Le Corbusier's Modulor system of proportions.

The film festival is run by the Beton Foundation: a Polish organisation that celebrates the Modernist legacy in all its forms, including films and computer games.

This prompted UVMW to base the shapes of the visual identity on Modernist architect Le Corbusier's Modulor drawings – a concept that combines the proportions of a six-foot-tall human figure with the mathematics of the golden ratio.

De la réalité de l'architecture VERTE : Rencontre avec l'architecte Patrick Arotcharen

De la réalité de l'architecture VERTE : Rencontre avec l'architecte Patrick Arotcharen | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
« Pour tous les hommes, dans les villes et dans les fermes : Le soleil dans le logis ; Le ciel au travers des vitrages du logis ; Les arbres sous les yeux, depuis le logis. Je dis : les matériaux de l’urbanisme sont : le soleil, le ciel, les arbres, l’acier, le ciment dans cet ordre et dans cette hiérarchie.»
Le Corbusier, La Ville Radieuse, 1933.
 
Ces « joies essentielles » qu’énumère l’architecte suisse fondent un principe d’aménagement du territoire veillant au rapprochement maximum de l’homme et de la nature. Si l’association de la nature et de l’architecture a pu, par le passé, être le leitmotiv des thèses désurbanistes, elle est aujourd’hui l’aspiration nouvelle de la ville dense avec le risque, comme on a pu le voir (cf. L’imposture de la ville verte), de frayer avec l’absurde ou l’irréel.
 
L’exigence écologique ne dispense pas de s’interroger sur le sens de l’architecture, ses rapports à l’homme et au lieu. Depuis plusieurs années, l’architecte Patrick Arotcharen travaille à la fusion de la nature et de l’architecture, interroge la responsabilité de l’architecte et l’impact de sa production sur l’environnement.
 
Qu’il s’agisse d’équipements tertiaires, scolaires, culturels ou de logements, la démarche de l’agence associe la conscience environnementale à une réflexion sur la densité, les franges urbaines et la tradition architecturale. Ses réalisations démontrent ainsi que les rapports entre l’architecture, l’homme et la nature sont de l’ordre de la réciprocité, de l’interaction et de l’appropriation.

Paris: Mairie du 13e - Le Corbusier dans le 13e | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Le Corbusier et les Trente Glorieuses
Il y a cinquante ans disparaissait l’architecte français qui a peut être le plus profondément marqué le XXe siècle : Charles-Edouard Jeanneret dit Le Corbusier. Il fait partie de ces grands bâtisseurs qui ont initié une réflexion sur les standards de l’habitat, du vivre ensemble et la vie de la cité à l’époque des Trente Glorieuses et de la croissance. Le Corbusier a incarné cette période historique.

Il a constitué un véritable courant et aujourd’hui encore ; il y a les disciples du Corbusier et ses réfractaires. Les architectes en devenir se positionnent souvent par rapport à son oeuvre pour former leur identité professionnelle.

Le Corbusier dans Paris et dans le 13e
Le 13e arrondissement abrite 4 de ses constructions : la péniche Louise-Catherine, quai de la gare (1929) ; L’Armée du Salut, Palais du peuple, rue des Cordelières (1926) ; La Cité Refuge, rue de Cantagrel (1929) et la Maison Planeix (1928), boulevard Masséna.

White ceramic tiles with black joints were French sculptor Jean-Pierre Raynaud‘s signature for most of his artistic production. In 1969, the artist started his research on space designing and constructing his own house at La Celle Saint-Cloud, France.

As he considered the first built edifice banal, the artist soon started to call into question the parameters of a living space. Reporting to be unsatisfied with the “conventional” configuration of the house, he started a journey which lasted twenty-four years destined to deeply transform and reinvent his domestic space, entering what would eventually become the central trajectory of his whole artistic career and creating a building that would coincide with his own self: “The goal is not to make works of art, it is to live the artwork as a goal.“.

J’ai voulu construire une maison, mais comme la maison de tout le monde, c’est-à-dire une maison pour habiter avec ma femme. (…) J’ai vécu quelques mois dans cette maison. C’était une expérience nouvelle pour moi, et là, j’ai compris que je ne pourrais jamais m’adapter à un lieu, entre guillemets normal. (…) J’ai senti qu’il fallait que je remette en question tout, une partie de mon existence en tout cas (…) J’ai commencé par divorcer, ça a été la première chose. Je me suis dit : « il faut déjà réapproprier le sens de mon corps, de ce que je suis. Jean-Pierre Reynaud

Need HELP With Basic Sketching Techniques? Let These Videos Teach You | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
We’ve all heard the story of the cocktail napkin sketch that inspired a masterwork. Architecture is all about communicating ideas visually, and there is no better way to quickly express an idea than through sketching. But for many students just starting on the path of architecture, the skills to actually create such sketches don't come naturally, and mentors who will take the time to explain such basics can be hard to find.

Geared towards young and aspiring architecture students, a new youtube channel, Themodmin, provides short, free tutorials on how to get the most out of your sketches in their series Architecture Daily Sketches. Covering topics from lineweight to perspective to adding people to your drawings, the videos follow a simple format that is easy to follow. Watch a few of the videos below and head over to their youtube page here for more tutorials.

How to ISOLATE YOURSELF and Inhabit Everywhere: Absalon’s Living Cells (1991-93)

How to  ISOLATE YOURSELF and Inhabit Everywhere: Absalon’s Living Cells (1991-93) | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
The inhabitation cells (“Cellules d’habitation“) are six living pods for a single person designed by Israeli-born artist Absalon. After leaving his home country in the late 1980s, the artist joined Paris where he started a (sadly) short but intense career as a sculptor. The “cellules” are his last and most famous work: conceived for himself, each one was to be placed in a public space of a different city (Paris, Tokyo, New York, Tel Aviv, Zurich, and Frankfurt). The minimal living units were thought to let the artist embrace a nomadic lifestyle and at the same time an ascetic and isolated existence, protected from an oppressive society.

The Possibility of an IMMATERIAL Architecture: the Collaboration between Yves Klein and Claude Parent – SOCKS

The Possibility of an IMMATERIAL Architecture: the Collaboration between Yves Klein and Claude Parent – SOCKS | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

“I will raze everything at the surface of Earth, until it is flat. I will fill the valleys with mountains, then I would pour concrete all over the continent….”

Yves Klein, “Je raserai tout à la surface de la terre,” unpublished essay, Yves Klein Archives.

 In 1958 in the Iris Clert Gallery in Paris, the artist Yves Klein presented an iconic work, a completely empty room, an installation entitled “The Specialization of Sensibility in the Raw Material State into Stabilized Pictorial Sensibility, The Void” (Further read here). This crucial episode might be considered the starting point of the artist’s research for an architectural space in connection to the notion of immateriality and his paradoxical attempt to materialize it. After 1958, Klein began working on his projects of “Air Architecture”, collaborating at first with the architect Werner Runhau, a member of the Mobile Architecture Group. Later, artist Jean Tinguely invited him to contact Claude Parent, as at that time, the architect  used to work with artists to help them express their thoughts in architectural drawings and forms. The two would start a prolific collaboration which Parent would recall as something that had a deep (“brutal“) impact on his vision and practice. Notably, for his research of an architecture without a specific delimitation in space.

Living AROUND Trees: Glass Houses by Lina Bo Bardi and Lacaton & Vassal – SOCKS

Living AROUND Trees: Glass Houses by Lina Bo Bardi and Lacaton & Vassal – SOCKS | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
The poetic theme of the ‘Tree House’ is a topos that architectural modernity never ceased to interpret. The similarities between these two detached houses by Lina Bo Bardi and Lacaton & Vassal stand out as exceptional. Both of them are located within forests, both sit on a hill, both have large glass façades allowing the vegetation to be seen from anywhere in the living space, both are built around on or more large trees.


Lina Bo Bardi designed a house for her and her husband in 1951 in Morumbi, Sao Paulo, Brazil. According to the architect, the building shouldn’t be ‘like a closed house that shies away from the storms and the rain’ (L.B.B. on Habitat Magazine, 1953)

Bolles + Wilson’s Suzuki House (Tokyo, 1990-93) – – SOCKS | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
The house the Australian architecture duo Bolles + Wilson designed and built between 1990 and 1993 for Mr. Suzuki in Tokyo is a playful unicum, yet a perfectly contextualized fragment in the Japanese city.

An asymmetrical concrete construction at the corner of a plot, the house is a classic expression of the architects’s humor, who imagined it as being “glanced by a passing ninja“. Small-scale protuberances, irregular windows and a gantry crane for the delivery of furniture punctuate the façade, and a big black blob surrounds the main window (a ninja sign for the authors, the eye patch of a giant panda, in the adolescent mind of the original client’s daughter). A suspended concrete box was expressely created for the child over the kitchen, an interpretation of the theme of the “house within the house“.

The Architectural Lab: A History Of World Expos | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Another famous architectural remnant from Expo 67 is Moshe Safdie’s Habitat 67. The building was initially intended to provide high-quality housing in dense urban environments using prefabricated modular units. Its configuration attempted to combine elements of suburban homes with the density of an urban high-rise. Although the design did not succeed in prompting a trend in radical prefabricated buildings, a new typology was created that expanded our ideas for what is possible in prefabricated construction. Like several other structures we have seen in world’s fairs, Habitat 67 was not disassembled upon the Fair’s completion and continues to serve as a housing complex today. [6]

When Fame is the KISS of Death

When Fame is the KISS of Death | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Too many architects once heralded as rising stars have seen their work descend into caricature and recycled motifs. In this cautionary tale, Peter Buchanan asks whether early recognition can stunt burgeoning creativity and originality

Our restless, consumerist, neophiliac society is always seeking the new, the next thing, the emergent - as suggestive of an underlying antsy, advertising-inflamed, pervasive dissatisfaction that is intrinsic to our culture’s unsustainability. This search for novelty applies even to architecture. Yet, besides being about innovation and originality, architecture should also be a conservative discipline, promising a satisfying stability and drawing on and preserving past wisdom - something undervalued by modern architects. So, can early acclaim for an emerging architect, particularly for being a herald of the new, be a handicap as much as a boon - even the kiss of death? There are good reasons, explored here, to think so.

Numerous architects displaying early talent have failed to flower into full maturity as designers, in part because of the pressures that inevitably follow premature recognition. Some that immediately come to mind are Richard Meier, Arata Isozaki, Mario Botta, Jean Nouvel, Santiago Calatrava and Enric Miralles. Something similar applies in extreme degree to Frank Gehry - he had been a conventional modern architect before reinventing himself when remodelling his own house, before collapsing into self-caricature (although the Bilbao Guggenheim is successful as site-specific sculpture). Worse still than this failure to fulfil the promise, perhaps, is the search for stimulation through novelty which compounds other more prevalently problematic aspects of today’s architectural scene.

Literally meaning “Calculation Machine” the Jantar Mantar is an astronomical observation site built by Maharaja (King) Jai Singh II between 1727 and 1734 inside his City Palace in Jaipur.

The largest and best preserved of five similar devices built in Delhi and Jaipur, Jantar Mantar includes a set of fourteen main fixed instruments in masonry, designed for the observation of astronomical positions with the naked eye.

The site is still used today by Vedic astrologists and local astronomers in order to predict the weather. Its religious significance testimonies of a time when science hadn’t still completely emancipated from religion, since the ancient astronomers were also Jyotisa masters.
