Is 3D Printing Taking the Artistry out of Architecture?

Is 3D Printing Taking the Artistry out of Architecture? | environment-architecture | Scoop.it
When we posed the question ‘is technology creating lazy architecture’, we had no idea it would spark such profound responses or such highly intelligent debate, leading us to come to the realisation that CAD and BIM are only one tool under archi ...
Kate Hartley's insight:

If you are an artist, an architect or designer, it is your concept that you are trying to physically realise, this is another form of model making in architecture and I personally like the freedom to be able to create more sculputural forms.

Modernism + Nature: the Tower Studio in Shoal Bay, Newfoundland

Modernism + Nature: the Tower Studio in Shoal Bay, Newfoundland | environment-architecture | Scoop.it

The ‘Tower Studio’ is dramatically situated on a stretch of rocky coastline in Shoal Bay, Newfoundland, where no roads guide your way and which is only reached by hiking.

Part of an architectural series by Saunders Architecture the Fogo Island Arts Corporation, the studio’s sculptural silhouette leans both forward and backward as it twists upward.

The studio is comprised of three levels with an overall height of thirty-two feet. Its entry area is equipped with a kitchenette, a compost toilet and wood- burning fireplace. Its second level is a studio, day lit by generous skylight.

At times, the stark abstract forms of the studios all painted black seem to disappear into the foggy weather, typical on Fogo Island. Inside everything is painted in a shiny white and as one passes up the white ladder through the horizontal opening one will stand on the roof- top deck with the view of the ocean and the rocky wind-swept terrain around you...

The Rock House in Norway Adjusts to the Terrain... | environment-architecture | Scoop.it

The Rock House replaces an older building at the site and had to be well adjusted to the terrain, both in terms of shape, scale, material and color. The house and terraces are partly built upon existing stone walls, the parts of the walls which are new are made of stones from the blasting at the site. The low elongated volume is cut into to allow for wind shielded outdoor areas, embraced by the house itself. These cuts also bring down the scale of the building, and together with the local variations of the section, make the building relate to the surrounding cliff formations.

On the outer perimeter of terraces and pool, a glass fence also protects against wind, but allows for maximum view. The house is clad with Kebony wood, a sustainable process of treating the wood to allow for good durability towards the exposure to salt water...
