Friday April 5th 1946, on a beautifully clear Spring afternoon crowds cheered as the 25/1 racehorse, “Lovely Cottage”, strode triumphantly past the finishing post to be crowned winner of the Grand National, the UKs largest horse race. Trained by Tommy Rayson and ridden by Captain Robert Petre at the first true Aintree Grand National race since 1940, after the Second World War, and the last to take place on a Friday, which had been the tradition since 1876.

The Architecture of the Dragonfly Wing in London, UK by Maria Mingallon

Saturday, April 13th, 2013

Article source: Maria Mingallon

An optimal natural construction, built by a complex patterning process, developed through evolution as a response to force flows and material organization.

Being the dragonfly wing a highly dynamic structure, vibration studies were necessary to obtain realistic deformation patterns and thus, understand its structural behaviour. Ten vibration modes were extracted from the modal analysis performed in GSA. Our eyes have difficulties distinguishing the third, fourth and fifth vibration modes (which occur almost simultaneously), due to the high frequencies exhibited. In our case, slow motion pictures featuring the real flight of the dragonfly, allowed us to identify up to the third mode of vibration by comparison with that calculated in the analysis.

Unravelling Geometry in London by Simone de Gale Architects

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013

Article source: Simone de Gale Architects

This project demonstrated the transition of space over a period of 30 years within the area of London Fields to Liverpool Street from a disused rough and un-inhabitable area into a well defined architectural establishment.

Fine plaster formed a conceptual arch representing the adhoc and then planned architectural proposals; an unwound timber section represented time. Entwining the two brought the concept together.

The proposed site for the Lido beach pavilion development stands 0.8 miles west of Marine Court on the site of Sidney Little’s famous 1930’s bathing pool in West St Leonards-on-Sea, East Sussex. The project is aimed at regenerating the most westerly end of St Leonards seafront and is situated on the new south coast cycle route between Bexhill and Hastings.

Lido will function as a stylish beach resort with outdoor recreation, leisure and entertainment facilities directly on the beach. As a place of rest and recreation, the beach bar and restaurant will provide informal dining and bar facilities for up to 300 visitors. The pavilion will also offer use of changing and showering facilities to beach visitors and those keen to enjoy the non-motorised watersports the area has to offer.

The Boat House in Cotswolds, UK by AR Design Studio

Saturday, March 16th, 2013

Article source: AR Design Studio

The Boathouse was conceived to serve as a tranquil retreat away from the main house – an 18th century converted barn. The concept was that it should float over the lake and provide a quiet hide-away with calming views over the still water.
The building is situated in the beautiful Cotswolds and consists of a 4-legged steel frame structure sitting on concrete piles sunk into the lake bed.
