Lleida-Alguaire Airport in Spain by b720 Fermín Vázquez Arquitectos

Friday, June 3rd, 2011

Article source: b720 Fermín Vázquez Arquitectos

The programme of requirements includes a terminal building, a control tower, and two spaces for storages. Given their size, none of these elements were obvious candidates to represent a new airport. The strategy pursued therefore seeked to link the three programmes by means of a common visual element that avoids the impression that a strange object has landed in the fields of Lleida while also defining a recognisable landmark.

The Solar Tower in Chicago, Illinois by Zoka Zola architecture + urban design

Friday, June 3rd, 2011

Article source: Zoka Zola architecture + urban design

A concept for a tower that captures maximum amount of solar power

The Towers Of The Future

Majority of the towers designed these days are extravagant formal propositions. Towers are in vogue but most of them are unconcerned with the issues of today or the future. In this way, the flood of towers designed these days is outdated. Architects must seize this time of the greatest responsibility and develop sustainable strategies for towers to use all the physical and social energies of their sites; especially, because towers sustain the environment maybe better than any other building type.
