A Vertical Manifesto for Mumbai 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. 1.1.1 Built Areas: The elementary unit constitutes of a lot, instead of a built up fixed layout apartment, where depending upon the ownership, an individual, a cooperative or a developer can construct houses/offices/shops/institutes as per the regulatory zoning planned.

Mecanoo . Cooper Cromar . Ian White Landscape Architects Aberdeen, the Granite City, deserves a green heart that is designed not only for the 21st century but for all time. The Aberdeen City Gardens are blessed with a truly rich and diverse context which can provide the setting for a spectacular piece of urban theatre. With one strong move we will double the size of the garden, tie tog et hera crucial piece of city fabricand createa sun-filled natural auditorium and international arts centre. A decorated grass arena, shaped by the natural topography, will play host to a multitude of events and uses; from private picnics to giant public performances, from frisbee games to art biennales. This single concentric space has the capacity to bring all the surrounding elements in to harmony and provide an iconic setting of world class status.
Parametric Modeling in AutoCAD: AECbytes Viewpoint #32 AECbytes Viewpoint #32 (May 16, 2007) Neil C. Katz Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, LLP Many people are surprised by some of the work that I do at SOM. But while we have created a number of sophisticated tools for building modeling and analysis, it is not the work itself that provokes this reaction. allthebuildingsinnewyork Washington Square Arch, New York, NY April 4, 2014 | In Manhattan | No Comments 1-5 Bond Street, New York, NY Digital Origami Background An ancient Japanese proverb says: "If you meet a person that is able to make many items of different shape by folding up simple sheets of paper, don't think it is trivial, but try to learn.” The “first wave” of digital architecture hit the world in the mid nineties.
FUNAMBULIST PAMPHLETS I am happy to announce that the twelve first volumes of The Funambulist Pamphlets, a series of small books collecting articles written for the blog, will be published by Punctum Books as part of the CTM Documents Initiative series all along this summer. Such an opportunity was made possible by Eileen Joy, director of Punctum Books and Ed Keller, associate dean at Parsons The New School of Design and director of the Center for Transformative Media; I am very grateful for the trust they put in me. This series of Pamphlets has twelve volumes for now but will be able to expand in the future, it will allows a collection of article by themes as well as a reading of them in a correct(ed) English (thanks to Anna Kłosowska and Eileen Joy). Following Punctum’s manifesto for an open-access to knowledge that I could not approve more, they will be downloadable for free as PDF and purchasable in printed version on demand.
New Fabrications for Architecture The Euclid robot and Ron 2.0 make their first 3D printed object. This was just a simple test print on the Euclid robot now that it is fully up and running, but it came out better than I was expecting. This whole layer based printing business is pretty easy. The details: It is printed with ABS plastic,size is 12 inches tall and 5x5 inches in plan. Because Ron 2.0 is such a huge plastic extruder the ‘line weight’ is very wide; that coupled with the speed that the robot was moving makes for a very thick walled structure.
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.
Junos House Juno’s House, Row house in Barcelona Our clients purchased a row house with the intention of doing a modest refurbishment: to renovate the kitchen, opening it to the living room, adding a new bathroom and give the whole a fresher look. When the works began, however, we detected that the quality of construction was extremely poor and that each level was a patchwork of humble materials.
Levitate Architecture and Design Studio : Loose House, Richmond 2,3 Although historically erectile dysfunction was a problem identified and treated by urologists, today primary care physicians and other specialists write 80% of the prescriptions for sildenafil, the most popular drug used to treat the condition. cialis online . Inhibition of PDE-5 increases cGMP activity, which increases vasodilatory effects of NO. One possibility is that high levels of cGMP induced by PDE5 blockade reduce the cytosolic Ca2+ concentration (46), leading to a reduction of the calcium-dependent protein kinase C activity (47) that in turn prevents up-regulation of IL-4R (48). " Q. "Because the herpes virus persists in the nerve cell for as long as it is alive and nerve cells typically do not reproduce, this represents the first-ever demonstration of a long-term treatment for ED that does not rely on the chronic administration of drugs that can have potentially harmful side effects," study co-leader Joseph C.
