Vincent Callebaut. Kiosque L'édition du soir Reader. Safdie Architects Design Glass “Air Hub” for Singapore Changi Airport. Today, Safdie Architects revealed plans for an all-glass, spherical “air hub” that will be built at the center of the Singapore’s Changi Airport, the world’s sixth busiest airport.
The “jeweled” biodome was presented as a “new paradigm” for international airports that will boost Singapore’s stopover appeal and become a “lifestyle destination” for both travelers and local residents. Learn more about the design and a word from Moshe Safdie, after the break. “This project redefines and reinvents what airports are all about,” said architect Moshe Safdie.

Amazon Science Centre by Marks Barfield Architects. British architects Marks Barfield have designed a research centre for the Amazon Jungle with a bulging bamboo observation tower and over six miles of treetop bridges.
The centre would allow both researchers and tourists to survey the rainforest canopy from above. Local bamboo would be used to construct the tower, which is designed as a series of off-centre circular decks that are linked by a spiralling central staircase. Single-storey bamboo pavilions on the forest floor would house computer workstations. This isn't the first treetop walkway the architects have designed - see their elevated walkway in London's Kew Gardens here. Here's a description of the project from Marks Barfield Architects: Pioneering science centre in the heart of the Amazon A pioneering science centre in the heart of the Amazon with more than six miles of walkways and an observation tower above the rainforest canopy is being planned by the Amazon Charitable Trust, a British charity.

While this sprawling metropolis has its charms, residents must deal with clogged streets, crowded neighborhoods, and steamy weather. A new 400-meter (1312-foot) tower, Peruri 88, designed by MVRDV, promises to deliver relief, combining high density with green roofs. Add To Collection Save this image to a collection MVRDV is known for its ability to understand the peculiarities of a locale and create architecture that aesthetically responds to its milieu. Housing Units in Nantes Winning Proposal / Hamonic + Masson. Designed by Hamonic + Masson, their winning proposal for the housing units in Nantes opens a dialogues with the surrounding space by introducing a new way of living together, mainly based on the generosity of the exterior private and community spaces.
The architecture of the building and public spaces will be composed of a play in the accumulation and stacking of floors. The ensemble of curves highlights the building’s radiance and dialogue with the near and far environment. More images and architects’ description after the break. Architectural Membrane for New York when Sea Level Rises. To confront with the sea level rising of New York, Tingwei Xu and Xie Zhang from the University of Pennsylvania designed an idea for protecting certain areas against water by wearing a “membrane’.
Deriving from the intelligent components, we created a surface system that can reveal a continually changing expression. The transforming surface can combine the multiple functions such as waterproof, lighting and agricultural planting. Rather than a traditional hierarchy design thinking, each component on the surface has equal essentiality. It is a irreducible integrity. As the surface serves as a waterproof for the buildings, in turn, the building provides structure support to the surface.

Applying Highest Good thinking to infrastructure, we are researching, developing, and open source and free-sharing our idea of Highest Good Food, Energy, and Housing so they can be duplicated modularly or as complete self-sufficient and self-propagating teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities to be built all over the world.
The primary goal of the One Community eco-building strategy is open source project-launch blueprinting, building, and demonstrating seven sustainable village models that will be the foundation for what we believe most people will consider a significantly more holistic and fulfilling living experience.

A Man-Made, Net-Zero Energy Island Off the Coast of Istanbul - Design.
This year Istanbul Design Week goes back to the future with a very ambitious project: HavvAda, a cutting-edge net-positive-energy residential island conceptualized by New York-based Studio Dror. Turkish developer Serdar Inan has commissioned the project, which will be unveiled in Istanbul on September 29. HavvAda will be built off Istanbul’s shore, using excavated soil from a new massive canal planned between the Black Sea and the Sea of Marmara. Inan has asked that the project be completed in time for the Turkish Republic’s Centennial in 2023.
For the design, Dror has drawn on its fascination with spatial geometry, as well as Buckminster Fuller’s legacy in structural engineering and Ebenezer Howard’s Garden City. The island is envisioned as a landscape of six residential hills, surrounding a circular valley dedicated to parks and recreation. Le compost de l'intelligence collective.

Finalist 2011 Skyscraper Competition Ankita Dahiya, Dhruv Bahl, Mayank Ojha India 1 The following key concepts, taking off from a conventional habitat, form the core of our design, along with justifying the manifestation of the adjective – vertical. 1.1 Multiplication of Urban Space: The vertical habitat is conceived, not as a sub-division of the Urban Floor with stacked plans of identical units, but instead as an extension of, or multiplication of the Urban Floor along its normal.
This reifies the conventional ideology of a ‘core + lobby + unit + facade’ typology and incites us to design for ‘built areas’ and ‘open spaces’ within a vertically rising structure.

FLO Home - National Association for Olmsted Parks. Environment. Un blog utilisant WordPress. The City as an Ecosystem. Currently our urban design and development practices work within the framing of modernism, which positions humans at the centre of existence that prioritises the status of objects and operates through the technology of machines. The processes engaged by modernism involve the simplification of systems to command their obedience, without any ideological commitment to return something in exchange for their servitude.
In modern cities we have delegated their development to planners, architects and engineers, assigning roles to people, as one would identify parts of a machine. Consequently architecture is productised and exported as ready to inhabit buildings, or pre-packaged modular units that are exported all over the world. Modern architecture has become a kind of giant gadget – perhaps, in the not too distant future, every city will even have it’s own ‘app’. In my view, this kind of proposal is the embodiment of modernism at its most absurd. THINK TANK architecture paysage urbanisme Marine de La Guerrande Adrien Pineau.
