Baubotanik: The Botanically Inspired Design System that Creates Living Buildings

Baubotanik: The Botanically Inspired Design System that Creates Living Buildings | Architecture | Scoop.it

Timber buildings are regularly praised for their sustainability, as carbon dioxide removed from the atmosphere by the trees remains locked in the structure of the building. But what if you could go one better, to design buildings that not only lock in carbon, but actively absorb carbon dioxide to strengthen their structure?

MVRDV's Reflective 'Wunderkammer' in Rotterdam is Given the Green Light

MVRDV's Reflective 'Wunderkammer' in Rotterdam is Given the Green Light | Architecture | Scoop.it

Rotterdam will soon have a new cabinet of curiosities to add to its collection of architectural icons.

For many years the city's Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, originally established in 1849, has required a safer space to house its world-class collection of painting, sculpture and prints. Last week the Municipality of Rotterdam voted in favor of the building’s construction and, with zoning approved, "the world’s first fully accessible art storage facility" is now slated to open its doors in 2018.

The building’s design, architect MVRDV claims, is in harmony with the arrangement of the existing public space. In their words, it is "a compact round volume with a small footprint [...] in order to spare the park." Its reflective glass façade, seen by many critics as the most overpowering and technically dubious aspect of the building's appearance will, in the designers' minds, actually "make the building less visible."
