The Solar Energetic Pavilion by jantzen studio

 
June 21st, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: jantzen studio

The Solar Energetic Pavilion is a proposal for a large public art sculpture made of steel tubes, and fifteen large solar cell arrays in the shape of four-foot diameter disks. The eight foot three and a half inch diameter steel tubes are all bent into six-foot radius curves, and connected together to form the main body of the sculpture. Each of the curved sections of tubing are placed together end to end and rotated to various degrees relative to one another, before they are fixed into longer curved sections. These long sections are then attached with bolts at their intersections, in order to form the abstract curvaceous shape of the pavilion. Fifteen of the long curved sections of tubes are terminated into a vertical position above the rest of the structure, where the solar arrays are mounted. Each of the fifteen solar arrays are also connected at their bases to sun tracking motors so the disk shaped solar cells can follow the sun throughout the day. The electricity generated from the sun through the solar cell arrays is used to light the pavilion at night, with the excess electricity used by the community in which the structure is installed. The conceptual design of the Solar Energetic Pavilion originates from a symbolic visualization of energy patterns associated with the conversion of light energy into electrical energy. It also refers to a large plant with leaves that convert sunlight for use by the plant through the process of photosynthesis.

The Crossing in Auckland, New Zealand by Studio2 Architects

 
June 21st, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Studio2 Architects

The Crossing is a private home built on the original cattle tablelands overlooking Pakiri Beach.

The house fuses together a limited material palette of concrete, blue steel, and oiled cedar into a bold and incredibly dynamic space, allowing the owner (a professional writer) genuine flexibility to entertain, while acknowledging the need for the relative solitude of a working studio space.

Sainte-Anne Academy, the school of tomorrow in Dorval, Canada by Taktik design

Designing an elementary school of tomorrow in a 120,000 square-foot heritage building built in 1896—that’s the challenge that Sainte-Anne Academy gave Taktik Design. From room layout to furniture design to communications, this innovative project was undertaken by Taktik Design’s industrial, interior and graphic designers. After the team proposed the initial solutions, they were given carte blanche to create an efficient environment that accommodates the latest teaching standards. The fun-filled environment at the Academy was designed with kids in mind; the space is less of an interpretation of their imaginations and more of a blank canvas for their creativity.

The architect’s inspiration came from the reclaimed eucalyptus wood of the “bateas”. These are the mussel production platforms that you see in the estuary and that constitute one of the most important local industry in “Ria da Arousa”, Spain. Eucalyptus wood is used in these platforms, and there are great extensions of this tree in the region.

The project presents the renovation of an apartment located in a building on the ‘Eixample’ neighbourhood, Barcelona.

Originally, the apartment presented a decayed and dark image due to the excessive subdivided rooms. The patio is very narrow and it scarcely receives light. Except for the two rooms next to the main facade, the apartment was barely illuminated by natural light.
