The Solar Rain Funneling Pavilion by Michael Jantzen Studio

 
June 12th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Michael Jantzen Studio

The Solar Rain Funneling Pavilion is a proposal for a large public art gathering place installation that would make electricity from the sun, collect rainwater, and clean the air for the community in which it is built. The entire structure would be made of photocatalytic concrete, which can neutralize pollution in the air turning harmful smog into harmless compounds that can be washed away. The upper portion of the pavilion is formed into a gigantic funnel that collects rainwater, and directs it into a large cone shaped storage reservoir at the base.

ENIGMA in Colombo, Sri Lanka by Narein Perera

The form of the house is primarily generated in creating the concept of an “Enigma” in the mind of the person entering. Guided by intermediate open spaces, the entrance court, the pool, subsequently arriving at the main volume of the living room where the climax of the ‘hidden’ garden is fully experienced. The entrance court envisioned as a part of the street on which the 20perch site forms the end block, defined by the continued building lines of the adjoining plots, the random rubble vertical envelope and pergola horizontal plane,  serve to contain, pause, experience the powerful shadows the sun paints, overwhelm, announcing arrival.

Guggenheim Helsinki in Finland by 10AM Architecture

Feather – sense of lightness, gentleness, grace. It characterizes with slightly bend silhouette, symmetry and its structure that thins-away at the periphery, finishing in a virtually invisible line on a semi-transparent border. It separates the inside from the outside (subjective from objective), zero-gravity form gravity (independence versus shared responsibility). Something beautiful, that serves a purpose.

The KM apartment has the distinction of having two levels, in which the program places public spaces downstairs and private spaces upstairs. These two levels communicate through the sculptural staircase, which has an important role in space and connects the first level with an office / library on the upper level which also operates as a family reunion place.

Workhouse de Scheepvaart in Schoten, Belgium by HUB

 
June 12th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: HUB

The workhouse is part of a complex situated alongside the canal which has a very original and distinct character thanks to its special typology and materialisation. Unlike traditional industrial ‘boxes’, the workhouse’s programmatic mix is rather peculiar: it includes a garage, workshops, offices and a caretaker’s residence.

Binario 11 is home to the main train Station with 10 tracks in Milan.

The venue is placed in an old mansion  and it is divided into two different areas: the bakery and the dining room.

The first one features a space adorned with hanging Renaissance reproductions from Agnolo Bronzino where the floor has the best italian Intarsia method. A black back wall with poems from Giovanni Pascoli explaining the process of making bread, combines with the original structural bricks and industrial lighting to create a whole new way of displaying food, celebrating the goodness of Italian bakery. Everything to remember the passion for the beautiful and good things that make every day a special day.

This house was designed to be situated among the mountains of Nara Prefecture located in Midwest of Japan. The south side of the house place is connecting with the gentle slopes, we can see green valleys under us without any concern of people eyes. The client is a married couple having one child. They wanted to house that “living” by physically itself linked directly to the atmosphere, with fostering their kids. So, they planned the house which was pulled out from the mountain, as the solid blocks. The pulled out land exposes the soil surface on the top of the land, it includes the buds of the plants as well as life of the insects in the walls.

Neubau höhere Fachschule für Gesundheit in Luzern, Switzerland by Maier Hess Architekten GmbH

 
June 11th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Maier Hess Architekten GmbH

The project seeks to initiate a pattern clearly identifying the hospital campus on Spitalstrasse. With already two buildings of about 35m height, adding a third one makes the pattern evident. An important benefit of the slightly higher than average structure is the – in our eyes very necessary – casualness of the surrounding space, that so could become more convenient and less tight.

Point Cloud to BIM for an International Broadcast Center by Hi-Tech Outsourcing Services

 
June 11th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source:  Hi-Tech Outsourcing Services

Challenges

The client wanted us to detect and rectify errors in the point cloud with accurate BIM modeling within 24 days.

The total data size provided by client was about 185 GB & to work with such heavy data files was really a difficult task.

The input files were in the form of 3D scanned images in which few of the scanned inputs were not clear & some of the building data was missing due to improper scanning, leading to complexity of resurfacing and modeling.

The building area was large and also consisted of complex steel structure.
