Colors on Water in Venice, Italy by GruppoFonArchitetti (Designed using ArchiCAD)

Tuesday, December 13th, 2011

Article source: GruppoFonArchitetti

Venice is an organic city, where the sea water goes in for six hours and goes out for six hours from the lagoon, which surrounds the city.. The saltwater is mixed with fresh water of the lagoon, creating a unique ecosystem, where, perhaps, against nature, man has built. In these green water, due to the life of the seabeds, everything is reflected, starting from the sky which provides colour variations throughout the day, seasons and weather conditions.

GIS Stations in Denmark by C. F. Møller Architects

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

Article source: C. F. Møller Architects

The Danish energy infrastructure operator Energinet.dk is actively upgrading the visual appearance of the Danish power grid. As a result, the large open-air switchgear stations are gradually being replaced with gas-insulated switchgears – also called GIS stations. The idea is to give the technical enclosure of these stations, typically placed in the open landscape, a distinct architectonic profile, and at the same time maximise their future flexibility.

  • Project: GIS Stations
  • Location: Miscellaneous sites across Denmark
  • Client: Energinet.dk
  • Size: 1,650 m2 (450 m2 workshops and 1,200 m2 GIS building)

ParaSol by Office for Design & Architecture

Sunday, November 20th, 2011

Article source: Office for Design & Architecture

The ParaSol is a rooftop shading structure that produces a constant shadow by tracing the sun’s rays.  Through advanced technology, ODA calculated and predicted the solar exposure for the site while taking into consideration all the contextual parameters of the surrounding buildings.  The ParaSol form emerges through a process of sculptural optimization where 90 models (each one producing an ideal shadow for a different day) were tested to form a hybrid prototype.  This outcome creates a high performance shading structure in a singular, spectacular object, shaping the identity for the rooftop while improving its micro-climate.

Samsø Energiakademi in Samsø, Denmark by Arkitema Architects

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2011

Article source: Arkitema Architects

On Samsø, focus is on sustainability with a range of renewable energy projects. Samsø Energiakademi. Has been built to collect and make available this knowledge. The experience gained from the many renewable energy projects on Samsø, from windmills to straw-based district heating, from rap seed tractors to solar collectors, are presented here. The doublewinged academy is situated in the middle of e green meadow with a view of the sea. Close to the energy of the sea and with the sun beating down on it.

The energy-produced elements of Energiakademiet are integrated in the “staircase elements” of the prefabricated zinc-plated roof. Current is produced in the visible crystalline solar cells incorporated in the zinc elements (Images Courtesy Thomas Mølvig)

Xeliox Energy Lab in Bergamo, Italy by marco acerbis studio

Friday, May 20th, 2011

Xeliox Energy Lab is the new headquarter building for Xeliox srl, an Italian company that produces solar parabolic troughs and that, through a new fully operational building, wants to achieve benchmark status with regards to production and energy consumption in line with the target of being a modern, hence sustainable, industrial environment. XEL is designed to be the first industrial building in Italy with an average energy consumption ≤ 6 kWh/mc: equivalent of Italian Class A.

The access from the parking pavement. The solar skin wraps the building and protrudes further to capture the visitors.

Rosyth Renewable Energy Plant in Rosyth, UK by Gordon Murray Architects

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

The concept design for Rosyth draws inspiration from the existing and former uses around the proposed site, a former Naval Dockyard, in order to reflect the industrial character of the surrounding area and create a strong connection with past feats of marine engineering. It functions at long range as a gateway within the setting of the Forth estuary. At the medium range, careful manipulation of the contrast between solid, void and transparency help define the massing of the Renewable Energy Plant in an appropriate manner, opening it up to the Estuary to allow a clear understanding of the processes undertaken within the Renewable Energy Plant while at close range, the design of the surface texture is considered carefully to create an architectural response which is robust and appropriate for the setting.

Grangemouth Renewable Energy Plant in Dundee, UK by Gordon Murray Architects

Sunday, April 10th, 2011

The design draws inspiration from the uses adjacent to the proposed site, container storage yards, in order to reflect the industrial character of the surrounding area and create a clear visual connection with Scotland’s largest container terminal. The design would function at long range as a distinct element within the setting of the Firth of Forth and within the context of the Helix park project. At the medium range, careful manipulation of the contrast between solid, void and transparency can help define the massing of the Biomass Renewable Energy Plant in an appropriate manner, while at close range, the design of the surface texture should be considered carefully to create an architectural response which is robust and appropriate for the setting.

Dundee Renewable Energy Plant in Dundee, UK by Gordon Murray Architects

Thursday, April 7th, 2011

The design for the Dundee Biomass Renewable Energy Plant aims to create a marker on the Dundee skyline and Firth of Tay beyond, symbolic of a sustainable future, making use of solid, void, light and transparency to define the mass of the plant in an appropriate manner.
