Gage/clemenceau studio. This is an architectural office in New York. Architects works and teach at the Columbia University. This studio partecipated to the competition of Tsunami memorial museum. Visit their site.
Elegant Embellishments is developing a decorative, three-dimensional architectural tile that can be installed quickly to reduce air pollution in urban environments. The tiles provide councils, developers, and designers with the ability to rapidly improve urban environments in terms of air quality and visual appeal. We are developing this tile with Millenium Chemicals TiO2.
Designed by architect Frank Gehry, Walt Disney Concert Hall, new home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, is designed to be one of the most acoustically sophisticated concert halls in the world, providing both visual and aural intimacy for an unparalleled musical experience.
Through the vision and generosity of Lillian Disney, the Disney family, and many other individual and corporate donors, the city will enjoy one of the finest concert halls in the world, as well as an internationally recognized architectural landmark.
From the stainless steel curves of its striking exterior to the state-of-the-art acoustics of the hardwood-paneled main auditorium, the 3.6-acre complex embodies the unique energy and creative spirit of the city of Los Angeles and its orchestra.
While the rest of the biennale pavilions are showing images and concepts, creators of the French pavilion are living in the given space. They have a kitchen, a sleeping place, a bar, an office, a party space, a watch tower, storage space, and a sauna. Plus wireless internet and wine for everybody. This place, Metavilla, is constructed out of scaffolding, the temporary framework used for construction. This modular system of metal pipes creates a raw aesthetic blended into the honest atmosphere and we experience a great architectural statement. They arethe real in the reality of architecture.

"Non c'e' niente di particolarmente complicato, almeno al nostro livello di utilizzatori di Rhino che vogliono farsi qualche strumento personalizzato. Ma non e' nemmeno una cosa cosi' immediata e banale. Non e' come prendere l'autobus. E' come guidare un'auto o una moto: bisogna prima imparare e poi vai dove vuoi, mentre per l'autobus non devi imparare niente, ma l'autobus ti porta sempre nello stesso posto. E la cosa va benissimo per chi non deve cambiare destinazione, mentre invece puo' dare qualche problema a chi dovesse andare in un altro posto. Se ci si appassiona, come per tutte le cose, lo studio non pesa, anzi diventa divertente. Se invece ci si annoia, forse e' meglio passare ad altro, altrimenti rischia di diventare una bella rottura di scatole ... ;)" _Enrico Morello
Are you tired for your daily spam mail? Don't worry, this is your solution. Now you can utilize spam for realize art! The images from the Spam Architecture series are generated by a computer program that accepts as input, junk email. Various patterns, keywords and rhythms found in the text are translated into three-dimensional modeling gestures.
Thom Mayne of Morphosis and Begoña Diaz-Urgorri of B + DU Estudio de Arquitectura have designed a low-rise village bounded by a slender tower on one side and a mid-rise building on another and incorporated "elements of traditonal detached villas - loggias, green spaces, and domestic scale - into a large-scale project. According to the catalogue, the scheme "radically transforms the anonymous character of the conventional low-income housing block" and "a precast concrete grid forms the lattisceowrk of the folded facade," adding that "large communal gardens, shared courtyards, and smaller private patios are interspersed throughout."
This discovery will create a new kind of architectural reserch, i'm sure. The MIT is just studying the application of the visualization of genome in some Master degrees. Here there are a perfect diagram built by Ben Fry.
In this video we can see scripting using as a tool of initial geometries studies for the roof of a building in Turin. The title is"Create double complex curvature using standard aluminum panels". In this resarch there is an italian architect: Caterina Tiazzoldi, Awesome!
