A Twisting Observation Tower at an Italian Forest

A Twisting Observation Tower at an Italian Forest | Communication design | Scoop.it

Architects Anton Pramstrahler and Alex Niederkofler have unveiled their proposal for a wooden viewing tower near Bruneck, northern Italy, with a twisted body shaped like a tree trunk .

The structure's spiralling form is intended to look like a tree that spreads out at its base and canopy – the result of a hexagonal section that rotates gradually as the tower ascends.

The proposed location is a forest nearby, and the architects want to build 90 per cent of the tower's structure from wood to evoke its natural context.

World's Tallest LEGO Tower Built by Delaware High School Students | Communication design | Scoop.it

Students across schools at red clay consolidated school district in Delaware, USA have participated in the completed the world's tallest LEGO tower. 

Specifically, a team of students from John Dickinson High School in Wilmington, sacrificed their entire summer to build the 112 foot tower-- but their work paid off. at a recent ceremony and community-wide 'towerfest,' Guinness Book of World Records has certified the structure as the officially the world's tallest freestanding LEGO tower, edging out the previous 106 foot tower from Prague. The 11 storey creation is made up of over 500,000 interlocking plastic bricks and weighs nearly a ton.

It’s Time to Start Building Wooden Skyscrapers

It’s Time to Start Building Wooden Skyscrapers | Communication design | Scoop.it
'Plyscrapers,' created out of material similar to Ikea's wooden furniture, may be the future of high-rise buildings.

In 2023, Swedish architecture firm C.F. Møller will transform the Stockholm skyline—and perhaps the very notion of skyscrapers. Last December, the designers won a competition organized by HSB Stockholm to honor the local real estate titan’s upcoming centenary with an ostentatious new high-rise. Møller submitted three designs, but the public latched onto one in particular: a thirty-four story tower made almost entirely out of wood, save for a spindly concrete core and a few steel poles on the ground floor. If constructed, the tower will be the largest mostly-wooden structure in the world. But rather than a one-off, it could be the clarion call needed to rouse the public around a new architectural trend.

I had already seen some images of this idea, but the more information we get about it, the more atractive it seems!
