Guadalajara, México: un edificio comunitario de muros de bahareque y celosía de carrizo

Las nuevas instalaciones -que fueron levantadas en tan sólo dos jornadas de trabajo y más de 100 voluntarios-, se construyen a partir de una estructura base de hormigón, muros de bahareque (cañas entretejidas y barro) y una celosía de carrizo entretejido (de la familia del bambú), que recorre gran parte de su perímetro. Más detalles del proceso constructivo, después del salto. Descripción por los arquitectos.

El proyecto se desarrolla en demanda por instalaciones para la recepción y alojamiento de participantes de talleres y convenciones convocados por IMDEC y cuya sede, CEDE, se acomodaba en un salón de usos múltiples y en los jardines del complejo.

By means of simply piled up square timbers a kind of “shelf-system” was created. On the one hand it functions as storage area on the other hand it can be used as interactive space.

This proposal for a university sports complex is part of a larger masterplan and architectural design competition for the Chinese University of Hong Kong in Shenzhen.

TOM WISCOMBE ARCHITECTURE - Chinese University of Hong Kong Arena

The project is a ground up, top-tier university campus with a total of 300,000 square meters of construction in Phase One and 150,000 square meters in Phase Two. The program includes classrooms, labs, dorms, faculty housing, administration, amenities, and sports functions. The joint design team, including Mack Scogin, Neil Denari, Brendan Macfarlane, and John Enright was organized and led by Thom Mayne of Morphosis in support of his continuing interest in ‘combinatory urbanism’.

The Sports Complex This building is more than a sports venue; it is an idea about social space and multi-functionality for 21st century university culture. The form of the building is based on peeling surface from volume. The building is made up of two, potentially phased, components which interlock and create a unified architectural whole.

Water Scraper Structure

Today, another designer has created a wonderful architecture design that will help us sustain a living in this constantly changing world. Malaysian design Adre Bin Sarkum has designed the Water-scraper, an underwater architecture that has the ability to grow its own food. The structure collects wave, wind, and solar power to sustain its modern way of farming like aquaculture and hydroponic methods and grow its own food. The water scraper has the ballast system supported by numerous squid-like tentacles generates kinetic energy to keep the structure in place and maintain its upright position.

A Hill On A House / Yuko Nagayama & Associates

This is an urban house surrounded by tall buildings on all sides except for the northeast facing a street. The issue was how to bring light into the interior, to open the enclosed volume and to develop scenery within it while avoiding looks from the neighborhood. There rises a white illuminated “hill” in the house. Its slope tilting to the southwest receives and reflects sun light onto the interior. It is this place that induces another story in our mind beside the everyday life of our own. IwamotoScott. Modern Door Design - Doors by Style. RhinoFabLab - Design + Optimization + Fabrication. Rhino Grasshopper VS Generative Components.

(A canopy design created in Generative Components by Elif Erdine) This is the Second Guest post from Mark Loomis I would like to thank him for taking the time to share with us his findings regarding different generative design platforms,hope it serves to start an interesting conversation with our readers and followers.

Rhino Grasshopper VS Generative Components

I’m Mark Loomis, a landscape architect who is guest posting on this blog. As promised in my previous post, I’m going to compare GenerativeComponents to Grasshopper. I also want to propose a way to explore them both by reading the book, ‘Elements of Parametric Design ’ by Robert Woodbury and using the GC and GH pattern tutorials websites that accompany the book. I’m not going to try to compare these products myself since I’m just now learning how to use them. VaSLab ARCHITECTURE. Celebrating 30 Years of Material Innovation.

When sunlight hits human skin, the epidermis reacts by producing melanin to protect the tissues underneath from radiation. This simple principle comes to mind when viewing the new design for a pair of planned ultra-luxury spas in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, which will employ a kinetic metal skin that can shift depending on the angle and intensity of the sun. Known as the Portal Spas, the two crystalline structures will become the newest crown jewels of the swank King Abdullah Financial District (KAFD) and will contain some of the most lavish spa amenities on the planet. The outer shell, however, may be more interesting to green builders than anything inside.

Project description Young people who grow up in Mathare, a slum district in the north of Nairobi, have little chance of obtaining professional training. To provide them with an opportunity to learn a trade, the German institution Promoting Africa, in collaboration with the Kenyan organization Youth Support Kenya, planned a new craft training school.

Students of the Univer-sity of Technology in Munich drew up architectural schemes in the context of their term work. One of these designs was selected for further development, and working drawings were prepared by six students for the first of three construction stages. The complex consists of four buildings that define various outdoor spaces.

The most wonderful thing about being in this wooden house is the parallel between indoors and out. Designed by architectural firm Sporadical, this contemporary nature-inspired house is nestled amid trees and earth in Czech Republic’s Central Bohemia. The house – a reflection of its environment – is built on a wooden frame and boasts a wood facade, artfully interrupted by large spans of glass that allow for views of the outdoors at every angle. Of the home’s three storeys, each embraces the environment in its own way. An open-concept main floor features soft, honey-toned wood, while the large gallery-style windows invite views of the forest beyond, boasting natural wooden frames that are evocative of trees themselves.

Built of steel unistrut, 8020 aluminum extrusions and a smaller portion of MDF and HDPE parts it has become one of the most robust DIY cnc router projects to hit the web since Gerald’s Mechmate ( The clear difference however (and it is hard to compare the machine to an outstanding design like the Mechmate) is that it is a true bolt together machine.

Often times DIYers are discouraged when they find a perfect machine for their needs but it is out of their abilities and resources. This was the case for Joe; not necessarily that he couldn’t weld the machine together. But he had a desire to design something that had the rigid nature of a machine requiring skills of a metalworker and the ease so that an every day person with enough aspiration could build it.
