The Campbell Sports Center at Columbia University ::: Steven Holl Architects

The Campbell Sports Center at Columbia University ::: Steven Holl Architects | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Steven Holl Architects in collaboration with Spirit of Space has created two short films on the Campbell Sports Center at Columbia University, completed in March 2013 in New York.

 

The building shapes an urban corner on Broadway and 218th street, then lifts up to form a portal, connecting the playing field with the streetscape. Extending over a stepped landscape, blue soffits heighten the openness of the urban scale portico to the Baker Athletics Complex. Terraces and external stairs, which serve as “lines in space,” draw the field play onto and into the building and give views from the upper levels over the field and Manhattan.

 

The Campbell Sports Center films are the third collaboration of Steven Holl Architects with Spirit of Space.

Fabrica


This unit is focused on the dual concepts of pre-fab and in-situ. It is our hope that through on-site construction, the architect's work will find resonance in this area and with citizens, so such interaction may enrich each other in a constant, dynamic process of mutual inspiration. The architects are Yong Ho Chang, Wang Shu, Michael Bell, URBANUS, Atelier Bow-Bow, Open Architecture, Atelier Deshaus, Johnston Marklee, Ensamble, Zeng Qun and Wang Fangji.

 

Mapping China: An Architecture Retrospective Since 2000
Curated by LI Xiangning

From the collectivism of the past to the "Chinese Speed" that caught the world's attention after post-Mao reforms, what lessons are to be learned from the explosive growth of China's cities and construction industry? Thought and practice in modern construction over the more than ten years since the new millennium dawned will be conveyed through evaluations of the past, documents and small-scale design, with an emphasis on academic presentation. The evaluations of Chinese contemporary construction and architects for the years from 2000 to 2013 will be led by construction pundits, including Li Xiangning, Shi Jian, Zhu Tao and Tang Keyang.

Post world’s END architecture: Spain - DesignCurial

Post world’s END architecture: Spain - DesignCurial | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Gonzalo Herrero Delicado, cofounder with Maria Jose Marcos of the consultancy dot agency for architectural affairs, examines the recession’s effect on architecture in Spain, where small-scale interventions, community action and ‘disobedience’ are giving the discipline a political edge

 

In 2011 the Occupy movement catalysed unrest and the will for change in locations from Seattle to South East Asia while across the sea from Spain, northern African countries experienced the upheaval and resulting political and social changes commonly labelled the Arab Spring. Despite their intricate and contested narratives, the Arab Spring and Occupy can be crudely categorised as collective movements of large-scale social protest. The primary goal of Occupy seems to have been one of flattening hierarchies, and building towards a more evenly distributed social culture. Its first expression on any real scale in Europe was in Spain, when the so-called Indignados took over some of the most iconic public spaces in the country and created loci in which to vocalize collective dissent.

Nuevos PARADIGMAS en educación, ciudad y arquitectura « La Ciudad Viva

Nuevos PARADIGMAS en educación, ciudad y arquitectura « La Ciudad Viva | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

La arquitectura ha dado un vuelco en sus objetivos en esta última década y lo ha hecho de un modo irreversible. El panorama del siglo XXI ha cambiado muchas de las cuestiones que creíamos asentadas en el siglo pasado.

La figura del arquitecto, lo que éste ha sido capaz de construir, el modo en que se ha producido su enseñanza y como los ciudadanos han revolucionado lo que para ellos era su derecho a decidir sobre su habitat y su uso, parece un camino sin retorno en las relaciones de la arquitectura y la ciudad.

Want to Get Into 3D Printing? Follow These Tips… Autodesk (Inventor, AutoCAD, Revit, Fusion 360, and 123D), Solidworks, and Bentley Microstation

Want to Get Into 3D Printing? Follow These Tips… Autodesk (Inventor, AutoCAD, Revit, Fusion 360, and 123D), Solidworks, and Bentley Microstation | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Even if you're a 3D printing whiz (if so, consider entering our exciting 3D Printing Challenge), to many people it remains something of a mystery: how does it work, what can it do and how much does it cost?

 

Software packages from a wide variety of manufacturers—including Autodesk (Inventor, AutoCAD, Revit, Fusion 360, and 123D), Solidworks, and Bentley Microstation—can all be easily converted into STL files. Autodesk has made a free STL exporter for its Revit BIM platform available.
