The Black Hole Research Center by Michael Jantzen

Thursday, March 6th, 2014

Article source: Michael Jantzen

The Black Hole Research Center is a conceptual design proposal for a large, solar powered building designed to be located in a hot dry climate. It would be dedicated to the science of, and the research into black holes. The structure’s design is symbolically based on the image of a large black hole located in the center of a large spiral galaxy.

Right to Energy in Rome, Italy by OBR – Open Building Research

Friday, March 22nd, 2013

Article source: OBR – Open Building Research

In a time when it is our duty to investigate alternative non-oil based energy sources, Smart Grid represents the most sustainable model in environmental, energetic and economic terms. The nodes in the energy grid will be the power stations of the future: intermodal and social centers, in which we will be able to exchange energy and data, and interact socially as if we were in a market, or rather in an energy mall. In these energy malls we will switch from “volumetric” vehicles for long-distance travel short-distance movements (electro assisted and automated individual devices that are an extension to one’s body).

The camel, polar bear and the blade: the project aims to link to the content of the program: biomedical research through the application of biomimicry (adaptation of biological systems and procedures in human artefacts) in the process generation architecture. They take these three bio-types as reference for similar adaptive systems. The camel as a paradigm of functional section.

Arctic Research Facility in ice cap of the Arctic Ocean by Polar Ants

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

Article source: Polar Ants

Architecture defines, articulates and mediates the relationship between a physical environment and in-habitation. The primary investigation of this project is to balance this relationship through a dynamic study of material behavior. This project therefore proposes a living architecture, and challenges the classical modernist notions of permanence and stability. The theme of this proposal necessitates an equally responsive environment. As such, the project is located on the ice cap of the Arctic Ocean; an environment which exhibits harsh climatic conditions for human survival as well as constantly fluctuating physical surroundings. As ice makes up the entire physical environment of the Arctic cap, different times of the year present vastly different ground conditions; namely various ice thicknesses, hardness and layering of the ice, topographical features and overall ice coverage. As these factors change over the course of the year so do all architectural and formal qualities associated with them.
