Kuwait Motor Sports Museum - eVolo | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Located next to a new race track and a dragster speedway, the museum designed by MARC ANTON DAHMEN / STUDIO DMTW is another component of the projected “Motor Sports Complex“ in Kuwait City. Its main function is to be a public showroom for the King‘s private collection of vintage racing cars. Besides the main exhibition hall with approximately 50 cars, it also houses a pitbuilding including a garage for restauration, a driving school for kids, a little conference centre, a cinema and some private VIP spaces.

Lebbeus Woods (1940-2012): Building Landscapes

Lebbeus Woods (1940-2012): Building Landscapes | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

"A few architects have explored the possibilities of fusing buildings and landscapes [...] While such are not in themselves inherently ecological, this approach indicates a sensibility that could lead in that direction. At the very least, it manifests a different attitude toward architecture, one that plays down a heroic conquest of nature and looks for modes of coexistence with it. As in all cases of coexistence, neither presence is sacrificed at the expense of the other; rather, each impacts the other in creating—hopefully—a balance, even a new form of harmony." Lebbeus Woods (1940-2012)

[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.

The 8 Most [CRAZY] Interesting Ideas to Revolutionize Urban Farms

The 8 Most [CRAZY] Interesting Ideas to Revolutionize Urban Farms | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
These vertical spaces could change how we grow.

 

As the vertical farming trend has taken off in recent years, many architects and designers have begun tackling the question of how to marry agriculture with architecture. Here’s a look at some of our favorite concepts (most of them un-built) for fanciful food-producing pyramids, geodesic domes, flower pods, and insects

 

Visit the link for a list of conceptual projects ranging from Belgian architect Vincent Callebaut‘s design for the 132-story Dragonfly, a solar- and wind-powered vertical-garden concept for New York City’s Roosevelt Island— to Plantagon’s now-iconic design for a geodesic greenhouse...

["starchitectes" à Montpellier] Architecture : écrin scolaire

["starchitectes" à Montpellier] Architecture : écrin scolaire | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it
Imaginé par le "starchitecte" Massimiliano Fuksas, le tout nouveau lycée hôtelier de Montpellier abrite trois restaurants et un hôtel gérés par les élèves. Doublement expérimental.

 

Lors des dernières Journées du patrimoine, les Montpelliérains ont pu s'offrir une jolie tournée d'architectes : Jean Nouvel, Zaha Hadid et Massimiliano Fuksas ont respectivement signé la mairie, la Cité des savoirs et du sport pour tous et le lycée hôtelier Georges-Frêche. Rudy Ricciotti, Foster & Partners, Christian de Portzamparc, d'autres "starchitectes" travaillent également sur des projets dans la région Languedoc-Roussillon. "L'exigence du geste architectural, c'est un héritage de Georges Frêche", confiait Josianne Collerais, vice-présidente du conseil régional de Languedoc-Roussillon et présidente de la commission culture et patrimoine, lors de l'inauguration du lycée hôtelier. Rien de surprenant, donc, à ce que le bâtiment ait été baptisé du nom de cette figure politique, indissociable de la région.

3rd Grand Central Terminal proposal includes a 'podium park' and skyscraper

3rd Grand Central Terminal proposal includes a 'podium park' and skyscraper | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

WXY Architecture have suggested a skyscraper and a network of elevated cycling paths for the future of New York's Grand Central Terminal.

 

Alongside other firms Foster + Parters and SOM, the architects were invited by the Municipal Art Society of New York to look at the public spaces in and around the 100-year-old station then come up with a strategy for the future.

Like Foster + Partners, WXY Architecture proposes the pedestrian station of Vanderbilt Avenue, above which an elevated deck would surround the base of the 250-metre-high MetLife Building. The architects refer to this deck as a “podium park”, which would feature transparent glass paving and seasonal plants, plus routes for cyclists and pedestrians and spaces to pause for reflection.

 

“The plan for Midtown’s near future needs to make the Grand Central neighbourhood a place people enjoy being in not just running through,” said WXY’s Claire Weisz.

New green design methods to revolutionize the building industry...

New green design methods to revolutionize the building industry... | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it


If you want a preview of the downtown Vancouver streetscape in 2035, start with a walk down Granville or Georgia Street today.


Most of the buildings will still be standing. There will be additions and replacements, but most of the changes that will transform downtown's living, work and retail space will be undetectable from the sidewalk. That includes upgrades to water and energy systems in buildings that in 2012 are models of inefficiency by contemporary standards, let alone future ones.

"If you are thinking 2035, realistically 80% of the buildings that will be in existence at that time have already been constructed," said Innes Hood, a professional engineer and senior associate with Stantec Consulting, a consulting firm with 12,000 planners, architects, engineers, project managers and experts, working in teams to break down the boundaries between designers, contractors and investors, while using advanced computer modelling programs.

 

Retrofits are crucial.

One of Hood's main assignments is overseeing the redevelopment of existing buildings. More often than not, that means uncovering, through energy audits, glaring examples of waste - air leaks, inadequate insulation, inefficient heating and ventilation systems.

"We are involved in residential projects where we can achieve 80-per-cent reduction in energy use and become essentially greenhouse gas neutral through the implementation of cost-effective technologies," Hood said. "We're not having to strive to the leading edge. These are tried and true technologies around good building enclosures and high-performance mechanical systems such as heat pump technology...

Circuits - MaM - Paris.fr |Bertille Bak,"consigner les traditions, les histoires, les identités des groupes avant leur dispersion ou leur disparition." | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Le Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris présente une exposition consacrée à Bertille Bak, jeune artiste française née en 1983. Circuits développe un parcours dont Paris est le point d’ancrage des deux derniers projets de l’artiste : Ô quatrième portant sur le questionnement existentiel de religieuses retirées dans un couvent et Transports à dos d’hommes, projet inédit réalisé avec les habitants d’un campement tsigane.

Films courts, sculptures mécanisées, objets bricolés, dessins et archives témoignent avec humour, poésie et engagement, des conditions d’existence et de moments de vie éprouvants. Ces récits imaginaires puisent leur inspiration dans la mémoire de familles ou de communautés souvent unies dans l’adversité, se trouvant au seuil d’un départ, en situation d’exil ou de migration. Le travail de Bertille Bak ne se limite pas à l’observation et au témoignage. Elle s’attache à recréer des liens, à consigner les traditions, les histoires, les identités des groupes avant leur dispersion ou leur disparition.

Lors de ses précédents travaux, son intérêt s’est porté sur la révolte d’une cité minière du Nord-Pas de Calais et celle des habitants d’un quartier de Bangkok menacés d’expulsion, sur la survivance de la culture polonaise perpétrée à New York par ses représentants émigrés. Les digressions narratives de Bertille Bak associent des anonymes qui n’ont pas habituellement le droit de parole. Elles témoignent de son engagement et participent à la fabrication de nouvelles mythologies.
