Wind Tower in UAE by Peter Stasek Architects

Friday, April 29th, 2016

Article source: Peter Stasek Architects

The global climate change leaves visible traces in the environment which sometimes emerge in the form of scars or devastation or simply represent the disappearance of something that has always been present. Humans struggle against this largely selfinflicted new world order and continuously try to slow this process down. The evershrinking glaciers in the high mountains are covered with awnings during summer and the regions which are endangered by sea flooding are equipped with new ramparts and sluices in order to protect the coast. Just as the tsunamis, the hurricanes transform the man-made environment in large stretches of land into a mishmash at one go, which makes it hard to guess what kind of function its components had to fulfill in the past. A new kind of aesthetics defined by chaos.

  • Architects: Peter Stasek Architects
  • Project: Wind Tower
  • Location: UAE
  • Software used: ArchiCAD, 3ds Max, Photoshop
  • Inspiration: The concept “Wind Tower 2016″ represents a kind of skyscraper which is shaped by tsunami and hurricane masses. A trapped cloud in its free form, pending in the air and only fixed by the core, still demonstrating its homogeneity (resonance) to the floating streams of air.
  • Production/Realization Technology: 3D-sand printed facade patterns with integrated glass fronts, Carbon fiber reinforced polyamide for Down Wind Turbine casing. Wind Tower is situated on an artificial sand island with a road access from the mainland
  • Specifications/ Technical Properties: 250m height
  • TeamMembers (1): Peter Stasek Architect and Simon Wagner – 3D Visualization
  • Tags: Peter Stasek, Wind Tower, Wind Tower 2016, matrixX architectures, matrixX architectrues by Peter Stasek,Simon Wagner,3D-square Wagner
  • Research Abstract: How to create a building, which is shaped by tsunami and hurricane masses. A new kind of aesthetics generated by chaos.
  • Challenge: A new order generated from chaos. As a new challenge, one could try to develop new urban structures and architectural forms which are not in contrast to but in conformity with the forces of nature which are able to further develop their potential of strength as a result of the global climate change.

Article source: Paolo Venturella Architecture

Our planet is going through the irreversible process of global warming, and even if various strategies have been planned to solve the problem, none of them provided a solution.

This is causing natural disasters all over the planet. The temperature all around the planet is increasing making the ice in the pole melt.

ORGANIC SKYSCRAPERS in London, England by CHARTIER-CORBASSON

Friday, July 11th, 2014

Article source: CHARTIER-CORBASSON

To conceive a skyscraper growing vertically is a very pertinent idea, particularly natural and adapted to London. The considerable financial investment required by such a building justifies this approach allowing to modulate its surface according to the interested investors. For this reason amongst others, we have chosen to develop a most realistic possible approach of the project that could be realised under the present advanced technologies.

Wooden Skyscraper in Stockholm, Sweden by C.F. MØlLLER Architects

Sunday, December 15th, 2013

Article source: C.F. MØlLLER Architects

For the Västerbroplan plot in the Marieberg district, Berg | C.F. Møller has drawn up plans for a 34-floor wooden apartment building. The building is designed around a wooden structure with stabilising concrete cores.

Pillars and beams will be constructed using solid and cross-laminated timber and inside the apartments floors, ceilings and window frames will be made from wood, allowing the material to also be visible from the outside through the large windows. Wood is the natural choice when it comes to materials for innovative residential development: It is an environmentally friendly and durable material which creates a comfortable and healthy indoor climate and, surprisingly enough, also constitutes a very efficient protection against fire.

Pilingscraper in New York City by Andrea Vattovani Architecture

Friday, November 22nd, 2013

Article source: Andrea Vattovani Architecture 

Through this competition we start to relate us for the very first time with a really high building trying also to understand what we think was right in the last 150 years of skyscrapers history.

The first stage of our process was to find a spot for our concept since Delirious New York was clear that the Skyscraper city is New York so the first decision was taken. After that obviously we needed a ground and we found one next to the United Nation Headquarters who seemed to us perfect close to the river.
