Ami, entends-tu le bruit sourd de l'architecte qu'on enchaîne... argh !

Ami, entends-tu le bruit sourd de l'architecte qu'on enchaîne... argh ! | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Ayant un long passé de militant politique, je compte parmi les élus et responsables politiques beaucoup de proches et d’amis. Sur les réseaux sociaux (Facebook ou Twitter), je les vois se féliciter à longueur de temps de constructions dont ils sont les instigateurs, les maîtres d’ouvrage, les partenaires ou un peu moins de tout ça. A chaque fois ou presque, je me sens obligé de leur rappeler de citer l’équipe de maîtrise d’oeuvre et plus précisément le nom de l’architecte de l’opération. Peu d’entre eux me répondent car peu d’entre eux connaissent le nom du ou des concepteurs. Cette situation peu flatteuse ne fait que souligner un manque d’amour et de reconnaissance que la France a pour ses architectes.

'Towering inferno' fears for Gulf: 70% of the high-rise buildings have panel facade combustible thermoplastic ... | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Fears of a 'towering inferno' disaster in the Gulf are growing after fires left residential buildings gutted in the United Arab Emirates cities of Sharjah and Dubai, reports the BBC's Bill Law.

 

One expert in the UAE has estimated that 70% of the high-rise buildings there have panel facade cladding made of a combustible thermoplastic core held between two sheets of aluminium.

Rudy Ricciotti à la Cité de l’Architecture et du Patrimoine

Rudy Ricciotti à la Cité de l’Architecture et du Patrimoine | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Le cinéma resurgit justement dans le documentaire de Laetitia Masson qui accompagne l’exposition, intitulé L’Orchidoclaste (synonyme de casse-pieds mais la traduction littérale est plus fleurie). La réalisatrice avoue au début ne pas savoir exactement quel portrait elle veut tourner et cela suscite une certaine inquiétude chez Rudy Ricciotti....


... 


Ce documentaire renforce surtout l’impression que Ricciotti cherche à éviter qu’on le définisse, comme s’il se situait toujours sur un autre plan. L’exposition sans chronologie couplée au documentaire délimiterait l’espace de la fiction comme le lieu où Ricciotti existe pleinement aux côtés de ses réalisations : il parle fréquemment de « narration » pour les décrire. On sort de l’exposition convaincu qu’il évolue dans les interstices d’une fiction qu’il construit lui-même.

[Jerusalem, Israel] SANAA Unveils Plans for New Downtown Arts & Design Campus in Jerusalem

[Jerusalem, Israel] SANAA Unveils Plans for New Downtown Arts & Design Campus in Jerusalem | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Today, SANAA (Sejima & Nishizawa and Associates) unveiled plans for a 400,000 square-foot building in Jerusalem that will form a new, interdisciplinary downtown campus for the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design. The competition-winning proposal, designed by the 2010 Pritzker laureates in collaboration with Israel’s Nir -Kutz Architects, features an array of stacked horizontal slabs that react to the area’s topography and surrounding context in order to create a series of outdoor terraced viewing platforms and multi-level interior spaces where students and teachers can meet, study and display their work.

Can Architecture Make Us More Creative? Part III: Academic Environments | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

The main question is: «What do MIT’s Building 20, the Ancient Greek Agora, 18th Century British teahouses, and early 20th century Parisian cafés have in common?» Jonathan C. Molloy published this post on © ArchDaily, thinking about the architectural implications of the most creative spaces in the world.

[Bucharest, Romania] Craiova Football Stadium Proposal / Proiect Bucuresti

[Bucharest, Romania] Craiova Football Stadium Proposal / Proiect Bucuresti | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Dedicated to football and designed by Proiect Bucuresti, the new 40,000-seat Craiova stadium will replace the existing “Ion Oblemenco” stadium on the site in Romania. As a tribute to the Romanian sculptor Constantin Brancusi, the form of the main roof lines were inspired by his work entitled “Miss Pogany”. The external volume obtained is expressive in daylight and the enhancement of architectural lighting at night will emphasize the building when viewed from the center of the town. The building will be iconic in the city and will be, along with other components of the sports complex, a modern insertion that will boost the development of the local area.

What Does San Francisco’s New Apple Store Say About Commercial Architecture?

What Does San Francisco’s New Apple Store Say About Commercial Architecture? | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

This past May, Apple filed plans to close its existing flagship retail store at 1 Stockton Street in San Francisco and move it three blocks north to one of the city’s most popular spots: Union Square. This plan was met with enthusiasm from city officials until they realized that Apple, and the store’s architects at Foster + Partners, were disregarding a beloved bronze folk art fountain by San Francisco sculptor Ruth Asawa that currently occupies the site. Many have also criticized the store’s design for being a characterless box of metal and glass that contributes nothing unique to the local landscape, raising awareness of a commercial architecture defined more by trademark and less by its surroundings.

Faut-il pendre Rudy Ricciotti ?

Faut-il pendre Rudy Ricciotti ? | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

La collection " Faut-il pendre ? " est heureuse d’introduire son nouveau membre: Rudy Ricciotti. Introduire est un bien grand mot car comme tu aimes à le rappeler: "J’ai toujours refusé d’avoir la circonférence de la bouche au format exact de la bite du pouvoir." (ici)  Quel poète, tu es. Quel rebelle, tu fais. Quel punk, oserais-je dire. Mais plus sérieusement, Rudy quand tu tapines pour LAFARGE (voir vidéo ci-dessous) , c’est avec ou sans préliminaire ? Tu sais que le pouvoir politique ayant cédé la main au pouvoir économique et financier, le courage (le vrai) aurait été de dire quel était le pouvoir auquel tu réservais ta gorge profonde. Vraisemblablement, au pouvoir du BTP bien plus puissant et dangereux que le pouvoir politique, n’est-ce pas ? Si tu en doutes encore, tu peux regarder le désastre que tes petits copains de LAFARGE (et d’autres) font dans le monde dans ce documentaire sur le sable diffusé récemment sur ARTE. Mais trêve de plaisantristes, passons aux choses sérieuses.
