HELIX investigates the notion of space-atmosphere, adaptability, reuse, and sustainable manufacturing processes.
HELIX is a diffuse furniture system that generates a continuous interior space by adapting simultaneously to any vertical and horizontal surface while defining an immersive spatial atmosphere. Its form recalls a natural system that emerges from the structure beneath.

Contemporary Art Center in Baia Mare, Romania by Suzana Maria Ciplea

Article source: Suzana Maria Ciplea

For the first time since the fall of communism,the Baia Mare’s city government is trying to revitalize the city’s identity, unique in Europe because of the \”The Baia Mare Art School of Painting – (founded in 1896)\” by creating workshops for artists, creative camps, and exhibition spaces. Inspired by this initiative the project that I propose represents a new monument that will historically contribute to this city – a new landmark, daring and poetic, which rebirths the spirit of “The Baia Mare Art School of Painting”. I wish that this city will become a magnet for plastic artists.

Castelo Branco Office Park in São Paulo, Brazil by Girimun Architects

 
October 10th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Girimun Architects

Taking the 2 existing buildings as a starting point, we have created a phased commercial development with additional 6 office and hotel towers in a total of 240,000 sqm stretching along 500m. The towers are laid out in a soft rotation angle from each other so to allow more space between them, guarantee open views, and create a dynamic outdoor inner space rich in landscape, water features, canopied walkways and supportive retail.  The later twin towers sit on a retail podium that gradually steps up amidst recreational open courtyards to overcome the existing 12m level gap on site.

Gubei Mixed-use Master Plan in Shanghai, China by Girimun Architects

 
October 10th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Girimun Architects

This master plan in West Shanghai capitalises on the potential synergy between various programmatic functions and urban transport network links to create a truly mixed-use environment with fully integrated business, shopping and entertainment activities. A large public space featuring event zones, amphitheatres, waterscapes and soft loans sits atop a double platform over an operative train depot. The technical complexities of the site and coordination with various existing infrastructures make of this development a remarkable achievement.

Living Zero in San Francisco, California by SUSTAINABLE.TO

 
October 10th, 2014 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: SUSTAINABLE.TO

In 2003, Architecture 2030 was established to respond to rapidly accelerating climate change. This has sparked extraordinary development in the field of renewable energy technology, allowing for buildings to become increasingly energy efficient.
The design intention was to establish the net-zero perspective from the eyes of the occupant. This project proposes a net-zero energy building in every aspect. Not only does the building produce more energy than it consumes through the use of building integrated photovoltaics, but it also attempts to foster a sense of community and a sustainable lifestyle through a vertical tower typology.

The Sun Totems by Michael Jantzen

 
October 10th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Michael Jantzen

Sun Totems are public art sculptures that generate electricity from the sun for the communities in which they are installed, and at the same time function as public gathering places. The steel structures are constructed from a prefabricated modular design, which allows for a great deal of size, shape, and color variations. The sculptures can be placed almost anywhere since they are assembled onto a prefabricated circular concrete foundation pad. Each of the sculptures are fitted with varying numbers of photovoltaic panels that convert sun light into electricity, which is sent into the local power grid. Seats are also formed into the base of each of the sculptures.
