KKA BUILDS PASSIVE HOUSES IN MALM
2012-04-16 17:03:00
"In 2009 Kjellgren Kaminsky won first prize in an open competition to build four passive house apartments in V?stra Hamnen, Malm?, Sweden. Now the project is inagurated.  The design takes the V?stra Hamnen city plan as a starting point. Being the site for the Swedish housing fair in 2001 the building regulations stipulate diversity of function, lush greenery and front line ecological solutions. This is the last site of the area to be developed. Our winning proposal includes 4 apartments built with passive house technology. Architecturally the aim was to create a small scale and diverse formal language, in harmony with both the surrounding houses and the future tenants."to find out more...

Autodesk?s 2013 Product Launch and AEC Portfolio
2012-04-15 17:14:00
"It is that time of the year that Autodesk typically launches its next release of products, and this year was no exception?Autodesk has just released its 2013 product portfolio. This includes new releases of applications across all the three main industries it serves, including AEC (which includes buildings as well as infrastructure), manufacturing, and M&E (media and entertainment). This AECbytes newsletter provides an overview of the overall 2013 release and then takes a deeper dive into the more AEC industry-specific details that were shared. Needless to say, with the commanding lead that Autodesk has over competing products, at least in the AEC industry, interest in every new release is always very high, and Autodesk users are eager to know what to expect. Let?s see if the 2013 release holds any surprises, or is comprised more of routine enhancements rather than dramatic changes." to find out more...

How Green Building Studio Works
2012-04-06 12:31:00
"Autodesk Green Building Studio is a web-based service that provides building energy and carbon analysis results of your project. Green Building Studio interoperates with Revit® Architecture and Revit® MEP software, as well as other compatible energy-analysis software via add-ins that are available for download from the Green Building Studio downloads page. The computationally intensive hourly simulations are carried out on remote servers, and the results are provided to you in a web browser. The Green Building Studio web-based service analysis process collects data from three sources: Your Revit® software model. All the building geometry comes from your model, including the number of rooms, the connections between rooms, and their relationship to the exterior, exposure, and aspect to the sun; and the shape and total area of built surfaces or openings. If you are using Revit MEP you can also specify space types, interior loads, constructions, and HVAC equipment. Your ...

Production Thinking Architecture
2012-03-18 17:51:00
"Prefabrication is said to be the oldest new idea in construction. But it is no wonder that it continues to pervade as an ideal. The construction industry is fraught with litigation, inefficiency and waste. The design and construction of buildings are separate acts that are delineated contractually and legally identified and observed. Arguably, the divide between design and production has resulted in increased schedule delays and cost, and a diminished building quality and sustainability because the conception (architecture), optimization (engineering) and production (construction) are not integrated. In response to this inefficiency, prefabrication and modularization emerge and remerge as ideal methods of efficient production." to find out more... Image and Passage via by Ryan E.

The Red Sun Pavillion
2012-03-09 17:21:00
"By opening my eyes... where am I? In England.  In London.  In Hyde Park.  English parks are a characteristic of English towns and cities.  Expanses of lawn for all to enjoy.  Meadows, really, of neatly-mown grass.  Mostly flat, with trees and shrubs randomly dotted as though they had always been there, not something anyone really thought of.  You can feel the city all around, as though it too had always been there.  Most of the trees are deciduous; the seasons clearly proclaimed.  From time to time a construction appears in this vast urban calm, a road or a path, occasionally a pond or a stream... One wonders why such simple urban parks, these immense vacuities, are so rarely seen in other countries.  Such a semblance of nothing is no small feat... leaving this huge, empty space open for all.  One imagines the energy it must have taken to protect it.  The constant care that must go into its maintenance, to keep the grass a...

Nanjing SiFang Art Museum
2012-03-04 13:03:00
"The new museum is sited at the gateway to the Contemporary International Practical Exhibition of Architecture in the lush green landscape of the Pearl Spring near Nanjing, China. The museum explores the shifting viewpoints, layers of space, expanses of mist and water, which characterize the deep alternating spatial mysteries of the composition of Chinese painting. The museum is formed by a "field" of parallel perspective spaces and garden walls in black bamboo-formed concrete over which a light "figure" hovers. The straight passages on the ground level gradually turn into the winding passage of the figure above. The upper gallery, suspended high in the air, unwraps in a clockwise turning sequence and culminates at "in-position" viewing of the city of Nanjing in the distance. This visual axis creates a linkage back to the great Ming Dynasty capital city." to find out more... Passage and Image via http://www.stevenholl.com/project-detail. php?type=&id=56&page=0

Unit Fusion by Y Design Office
2012-02-28 14:51:00
"Under rapid housing developments in the past years, Hong Kong has benefited much in terms of economy. However, important values such as value in sense of community and individual identity were lost. This thesis hereby critically reviews current and past housing projects in Hong Kong and stating the notion of verticality as the only solution. The ambition is a new alternative high-rise residential typology, in which its inhabitants are given unique units and allocations in accordance to specific zoning strategy within a tower structure, thus creating a phenomenal living experience through bonding and acquiring needs by each and every single individual. It is a re-interpretation of the balance between genericity and specificity aiming at formulating an extraordinary democratic living concept." to find out more...
