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.

Thursday, March 3rd, 2016

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.

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.

Envisioning Tatlin’s Tower in JAKARTA, Indonesia by PHL Architects

Friday, February 5th, 2016

Article source: PHL Architects 

Most cities around the world are facing environmental problems as a result of rapid population growth.
Industrial urbanization has also worsened the effect of an increasing population. To fulfill the need for more space, many forest and farmlands have been cleared for housing; hotel and resorts; high rise buildings and commercial areas, resulting in a poorer environment in cities and at large. With lesser farmlands comes a lack of steady food production to support the needs of highly populated cities. The loss of forests also increases global air temperatures and pollutants, deteriorating living conditions.
