Valencia sues opera house architect as WHITE ELEPHANTS rot

Valencia sues opera house architect as WHITE ELEPHANTS rot | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

He is one of a breed of "starchitects" whose spectacular bridges, airports and museums have brought him fame around the world but now Santiago Calatrava is facing legal action from his native city of Valencia.

 

The dazzling City of Arts and Sciences, a sprawling space-age complex that transformed the centre of the city of Valencia when it was inaugurated eight years ago, is already falling apart and regional authorities have said they will sue the architect responsible.

 

Last week chunks of the mosaic façade of the centerpiece opera house fell off in high winds and authorities were forced cancel scheduled Christmas performances and to close the building to the public until further notice.

 

Authorities are laying the blame of the rapid deterioration of buildings within the complex at the foot of Mr Calatrava, who was paid close to 100 million euros for a project that came in at four times over budget with a final price tag of over 1 billion euros.

$100,000 Traveling fellowship open to talented early-carrer ARCHITECTS worldwide | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Harvard GSD’S $100,000 Wheelwright Prize, 2014 Edition Launches in January

Harvard GSD is pleased to announce the second edition of the Wheelwright Prize, a $100,000 traveling fellowship open to talented early-career architects worldwide proposing exceptional itineraries for research and discovery. Available to architects practicing anywhere in the world, the Wheelwright Prize recognizes the importance of field research to professional development, and reinforces Harvard GSD’s dedication to fostering investigative approaches to contemporary design.

“It is clear that today's fluid movement of people and ideas necessitates new approaches towards the understanding of architecture and urbanization. I am excited that in the coming years the Wheelwright Fellowship will be able to have a significant impact on the intellectual projects of young architects and, in turn, on the future of architecture and the built environment.”

[Seoul, South Korea] Samsung Model Home Gallery

[Seoul, South Korea] Samsung Model Home Gallery | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Seoul, South Korea / NADAAA. Award.

 

In Seoul, buying a home is a little bit like shopping at Ikea: Instead of touring individual houses with a broker, a prospective buyer visits a model home gallery (usually run by one of the country’s five major development corporations), and bases his or her purchase off of an apartment showroom. But these galleries not only showcase the apartments available in the dozens of towers under construction, they also serve as community gathering spaces.

For the Samsung Model Home Gallery, Boston-based firm NADAAA created a 105,000-square-foot, high-design shell, with an aluminum-fin-clad volume to house the model apartments rising from a glazed base. “To me, the base is what’s successful because of what it does,” juror David Jameson said. “It’s a supergraphic for a house.”

However, this rapid development has not been consistent nor coordinated throughout the urban environment. Indeed, this narrative is a familiar one for architects working in the developed world:the rapid economic growth and the accompanying urbanization has created a world of radical juxtapositions, where glistening contemporary architecture coexists with the poverty, non-existent infrastructure, and inhospitable physical environment.

5 arqui-DESEOS para el 2014 | stepienybarno | veredes

5 arqui-DESEOS para el 2014 | stepienybarno | veredes | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Nuevo año a la vuelta de la esquina y no podíamos dejar pasar la oportunidad para lanzar a la esfera digital unos cuantos deseos para el 2014.

 

1. La profesión sufre momentos muy complicados; así que, pedimos un poco de justicia y que Luis de Guindos entre en razón y todo el tema de la LSP se disuelva en el aire, como si nunca hubiera pasado nada. ¡Soñar es gratis!

 

2. Que nuestros representantes se olviden de sus tejemanejes particulares y que lo poco o mucho que hagan sea únicamente pensando en el bien de todos sus colegiados.


3. Nuestras Escuelas de Arquitectura, salvo excepciones, quedaron ancladas en los años ochenta del siglo pasado; así que, pedimos:-  que cojan mayor conciencia de la crisis actual y, en consecuencia, el plan de estudios cambie.- que, de una vez por todas, entiendan que el mundo a cambiado e Internet abre un sinfín de posibilidades.- que incorporen,  aunque sea como marías, asignaturas que faciliten el desembarco profesional de sus alumnos en elmundo real.


4. Aunque alguno diga que eso de los falsos autónomos es práctica de otro siglo; la realidad es que sigue siendo algo habitual; así, mejor desear que desaparezca en estudios de arquitectura.

 

5. Pedimos un poco de mentalidad empresarial para el colectivo. Los estudios, en general, somos empresas y como tales conviene plantearnos nuestra actividad. Y está claro que podríamos seguir pidiendo; pero ¡mejor os animamos a vosotros a completar nuestra lista!

[...]

Stepienybarno _ Agnieszka Stepien y Lorenzo Barnó
