8X Tower in Vancouver, Canada by GBL Architects

Friday, March 25th, 2016

Article source: GBL Architects

The site is located at the western corner of Richards and Helmcken Street in downtown Vancouver’s Yaletown neighborhood – positioned at the convergence of three surrounding contextual zones. EMERY BARNES PARK flanks the western edge of the site, providing a large public green space. The URBAN GRID of Helmcken and Richards streets front the southern and eastern edges of the site, distinguished by the neighboring eight storey heritage Brookland Court. On a larger scale, the surrounding YALETOWN SKYLINE provides a variety of architectural styles and residential tower expressions. Establishing a building form and character that appropriately responds to all three of these unique contexts is the foundation of the proposed tower’s conceptual design.

Airport Traffic Control Tower in Turkey by RMJM Group

Tuesday, March 15th, 2016

Article source: RMJM Group

Bird – Spirit of the Tower

An air traffic control tower is the absolute symbol of aviation industry, of traveling, of welcoming and of wishing good bye. The highest building in the airport is as important as a first impression as any. It signals arrival or departure, safety and a watch over the complicated and definitely not earthly experience of flying. In other words although not a gate in shape it is undoubtedly the metaphor of one.

Shenyang Aquatic Residential Tower in China by Spatial practice

Wednesday, March 9th, 2016

Article source: Spatial practice 

“How can we create an alternate living environment for a harsh cold climate? Is it possible to create a residential tower that is closed for warmth but open for views and sunlight?”

The project is located in front of Zhongshan Park in Shenyang, China; where the temperature drops to -11°C in winters. The design catches the maximum amount of natural sunlight while providing a large thermal mass for insulation. The result is a living zigzag facade with winter gardens acting as a buffer zone for cold winters and creating an internalized view.

City sand Tower in Maroc, Africa by OXO architects

Article source: OXO architects 

In this flat expanse, it is difficult to understand the tower at the first glance, At this distance, it seems to be a rock.

Approaching the landscape widens, the climate softened through the shadows projected on the ground.

One enters a maze of streets that recall the eastern souks.

Article source: VINCENT CALLEBAUT ARCHITECTURES

Stop the Ecocide:Onwards to the agroecological revolution

My name is Amlankusum. I’m a 45-year old Hindu agroecologist. For the past five years, I’ve lived with my family in the heart of a plus-energy, vertical eco-neighborhood called “Hyperions” producing more energy than it consumes. In collaboration with architects, agricultural engineers, agronomistsand farmers,I eco-conceived this garden towersproject rooted in JaypeeGreens Sports City, with the double objective of energy decentralization and food deindustrialization. My approach is holistic, combining the best of low-tech and high-tech instead ofsystematically opposing them. Our aim is to reconcile urban renaturationand small-scale farming with environment protection and biodiversity.
