The joint venture KOOP and INNOCAD from Graz emerged as winners in the 2010 Architecture competition for Microsoft’s headquarter in Vienna, Austria.

On the basis of Microsoft’s Work Place Advantage Concept (WPA), the project team was able to work in close collaboration with the Microsoft project team during the subsequent project realization phase, the team of architects assumed responsibility for the overall design of the new Microsoft working environment as construction supervisors and project managers. This allowed the total project-schedule to be as quick as 14 months (from tender to finalization).

NEW YORK:  An intensive 4-year design/construction program by the Walters-Storyk Design Group has produced sixteen professional audio education studios for The Art Institutes’ educational institutions across the U.S.  Developed to train students for jobs in the rapidly expanding sphere of high tech audio-related occupations, the studios provide cutting edge instruction in both theory and hands-on production techniques.  The Art Institute of Michigan (Detroit) complex is currently under construction.

WSDG Partner/Senior Project Manager Romina Larregina has spearheaded the program since its inception. Working closely with company principal/architect/acoustician John Storyk she has supervised each construction project to insure the highest level of pro audio educational professionalism.  “John Storyk’s commitment to education was a primary catalyst behind The Art Institutes decision to retain WSDG for this major assignment,” Larregina says.  “His extensive lecturing background, coupled with our 40-year + history of creating world-class studios for artists ranging from Jimi Hendrix to Alicia Keys and Bruce Springsteen, made us an obvious choice for this expansive, on-going project.”

VoltaDom by Skylar Tibbits

Article source: Skylar Tibbits

VoltaDom is an installation for MIT’s 150th Anniversary Celebration & FAST Arts Festival (Festival of Arts, Science and Technology),  that populates the corridor spanning building 56 & 66 on MIT’s campus.  This installation lines the concrete and glass hallway with hundreds of vaults, reminiscent of the great vaulted ceilings of historic cathedrals.  The vaults provide a thickened surface articulation and a spectrum of oculi that penetrate the hallway and surrounding area with views and light.  VoltaDom attempts to expand the notion of the architectural “surface panel,” by intensifying the depth of a doubly-curved vaulted surface, while maintaining relative ease in assembly and fabrication.  This is made possible by transforming complex curved vaults to developable strips, one that likens the assembly to that of simply rolling a strip of material.

MOSQUITO in Desio, Italy by Gianluca Milesi Architecture

Article source: Gianluca Milesi Architecture

We propose a contemporary design and architecture for our proposals for the temporary architectures at the Kernel Festival, in the park of Villa Tittoni in Desio.  Our approach is inspired by the shapes, the imagination and the way of thinking of a digital environment and paradigm, through a non standard attitude, parametric geometry and lighting.  This according to the temporary nature of the projects (existing just from the 1st of July to the 3rd of July 2011), a specific attention in the simplicity of the assemblage of the parts, the use of the given construction materials, the photovoltaic panels and the plastic profiles.

MOSQUITO

  • Architects: Gianluca Milesi Architecture
  • Project: Temporary Architecture at Kernel Festival “MOSQUITO”
  • Location: Desio, Milan, Italy
  • Software used: The projects are redacted using mostly 3dstudio max with the eventual contribution of autocad, with different renderings engines, in particular we have used mental ray.

Sunscraper: 15.277 solar panels tower in Gianluca Milesi Architecture

We like sustainability, we think is probably on of the most important issue in contemporary architecture.. but we are still architects.. and we like forms and space too… that why we invented the SUNSCRAPER:

This is a project for a tower wrapped by solar panels.  15.277 swinging solar panels have been assembled to create a continuous skin around the building.  The form of our tower wants to be organic and fluid, the perception would be of an architecture quality work and a functioning engine at the same time. We want to re interpret technique adding a formal input to it.  Our effort is to maximize sustainability and energy production creating at the same time a pleasant and contemporary expression of architecture.

Gymnasium, Palais des Sports in Loudéac, France by Agence Bohuon Bertic Architectes

At first, the establishment site of the sports hall has an open character.  We are in the presence of a simple space, a vast grassland which spreads throughout the south side of a hill. Located on the upper part, it is a maximum space which has conserved the beauty of agricultural spaces, contained in planted trees limits.  The choice of establishing the sports hall on the plot comes from a clear relationship and complementarity with the close existing sportive area.  This space has clearly the distant and the horizon for limits but also long and high tree lines which contain the hill and emphasize the slopes of the scenery.

Meeting Hall Gosdorf in Styria, Austria by HOFRICHTER-RITTER Architects

 
June 19th, 2012 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: HOFRICHTER-RITTER Architects

In comparison to the local surroundings, the distinctive architecture of the hall marks the attempt to provide a new highlight in a highly heterogeneous and, in terms of scale, non-homogeneous structure of a rural settlement. The hall has been deliberately designed as a venue for everyone; it stands apart from its neighbouring buildings and almost looks like a UFO that has just landed.

“DO IT BEFORE NOT AFTER” – floating structures operation – A new way to think at disaster The worlds is becoming more and more sensitive to the climate changing, that, according to the most reputed studies, will have heavy and often dramatic effects on the earth and on us. Recently very well known dramatic events pushed the citizens, the governments and the organizations to think new and more appropriate strategies in order to provide relief to the population’s victims of these catastrophic natural events. This is the aim of this competition too. In medicine there are mostly two ways to try to reduce the impact of diseases on people; one is to cure and the other one is to prevent. We all know that to prevent is better than to cure.
