Adaptive Scaffolding This definition creates a thickened ground geometry from two sloping curves. Scaffolding grows out of the thickened ground, and its dimensions are derived from the ribs in the ground. This scaffolding can then be trimmed by a curve and a cylinder as if it were growing around walls and buildings. Beach and Howe St. by BIG Danish architects BIG have unveiled proposals for a 150-metre-high skyscraper in downtown Vancouver. The architects are working alongside a team that includes developer Westbank, consultants Dialog, Cobalt, PFS, Buro Happold and Glotman Simpson, as well as local architect James Cheng. The 49-storey residential building will have a twisted form that is set back from the adjacent motorway flyover to prevent any windows or balconies from overlooking it. Nine floors at the base of the tower will accomodate offices, shops and restaurants, which will spill out onto a series of public plazas that stretch underneath the elevated highway.

Gean Moreno, Farewell to Function: Tactical Interiors / Journal Gean Moreno Disorientation: We Are Almost There Many of the more prominent artworks produced in the last decade or so are characterized by a recasting of what were once called installations as something closer to interiors, relegating the installation to a supportive role that places meaning in the service of activity. From an artwork spread out everywhere we turn to one that is located very precisely in the features that can be said to make up the space—the walls, the furnishings, the floor coverings, the display structures, the shelves.

Fortress Of Solitude: Is Apple’s New iHub True To The Brand's Vision? Last week, tech giant Apple’s new corporate "spaceship" received initial approval by Cupertino’s planning commission—final city council votes will happen in May. The colossal building, designed by renowned UK firm Foster + Partners, is already (in)famous for its monolithic O shape, garnering attention at the level of any other Apple product in the last decade. Indeed, the iHub looks to be just that: the quintessential example of architecture as product and a potent symbol for the power of shrewd branding. Apple is under heightened scrutiny following the death of its founder and marketing figurehead, Steve Jobs. The unprecedented success story of the technology firm was attributed to him alone, and as a result, each "post-Jobs" product is ruthlessly examined for cracks, despite the fact that the company is as famous for its unblemished image as for the quality of its products.

Grasshopper to Catia Progress Update We’re continuing progress with Dassault Systèmes on implementing Catia into architectural process. Our first course of study aims at the Grasshopper/Catia workflow, and since our previous post, we’ve delved into Knowledgeware, the scripting platform for Catia. Our conclusion: Knowledgeware is awesome. In our previous post, we were using Power Copy to create a generative model. While this process worked, there were a lot of manual steps involved, and updating geometry involved deleting all previous geometry and then reimporting. We’ve had similar issues with importing geometry to other applications, but Knowledgeware fixes these issues in Catia.

Ghost architecture « CUPtopia A map is a representation of reality, not reality itself. Sometimes it is a projection of reality, a potential reality that has not happened yet. In this case, let’s call it a utopia. Lesson / Koan : Pablo Valbuena combines the best of both worlds. Just like a cartographer, Pablo Valbuena bases himself on existing spaces.
