La Braderie de l’architecture, ce pont jeté vers le grand public samedi à Lille | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

L’architecture déballe ses petits trésors. Samedi, place Mitterrand à Lille, une quarantaine de stands de professionnels, d’associations, d’étudiants et de particuliers se déploieront pour la toute première Braderie de l’architecture. Manière originale et bon enfant de promouvoir un métier de l’ombre. Explications avec Odile Werner, directrice de la Maison de l’architecture et de la ville (MAV).

Chicago revising cultural and economic development strategy.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel has long been a vocal supporter of the arts. Now City Hall is coordinating an extensive outreach effort to check Chicago’s creative pulse, seeking comment on the city’s first new cultural plan in more than 25 years.

After his election in February 2011, Emanuel directed the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) to revamp the Chicago Cultural Plan, which was created in 1986 under Mayor Harold Washington. DCASE launched a website in January to coordinate its efforts. They are expected to produce a draft plan by early summer.

[Norway] Sustainable Technology at the National Museum of Art, Architecture & Design in Oslo, Norway

[Norway] Sustainable Technology at the National Museum of Art, Architecture & Design in Oslo, Norway | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

 

The new Museum of Modern Art needed to address the role and function of art in Oslo's city center, as a place for the interpretation of both the historical and contemporary reality. The museum uses twisted geometry standing on a massive footing to introduce series of event spaces, from landscape to interior exhibition to roofscape.

 

Facing the water front the massing rises and pedestrians are invited into the area through multiple accesses on the landscape, leading to the radial center of the museum lobby. The volume creates a protected plaza, or canopy for temporary outside exhibitions.

 

Sustainability: The technology came in the form of self-compacting concrete in which chemical additives are introduced into the concrete mix, significantly increasing its workability without any resultant loss in strength. The project is conceived like a bridge. Sustainable design integrates environmental, economic, and social issues of sustainability together with users’ goals and needs. The NMAAD Museum employs sustainable design to reduce energy consumption, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, encourage water conservation, and provide high indoor environmental quality.
