  • Richard Meier & Partners Completes the Cittadella Bridge in Italy

    about 13 hours ago from archinect.com

    New York, September 26, 2017 – Richard Meier & Partners has completed its first pedestrian and vehicular bridge. With a surface area of approximately 4,150 meters and a length of 185 meters, the new Cittadella Bridge is a precast-concrete and painted-steel modern structure designed to connect the city of Alessandria, Italy with the 18th-century citadel across the Tanaro River in northwestern Italy.

    During the flooding of Alessandria in 1994, not only did the water level reach the roadway, but also the piers of the Napoleonic Cittadella Bridge caught much of the debris in the river, effectively acting as a dam. The new design, a single span raised above the flood plain, not only solves that problem, but also reconnects the fabric of the modern city with the Cittadella, an 18th century fort and tentative UNESCO World Heritage site. By relinking Piazza Gobetti to the citadel's remarkable structures, the project hopes to catalyze their future preservation and reuse.

  • Metro Transit Newport Transit Center by Snow Kreilich Architects

    about 14 hours ago from archinect.com

    Snow Kreilich Architects collaborated with Stantec to design the Newport Transit Station, which is the beginning of a much larger re-development of vacated land along U.S. Highway 61 and I-494 IN Washington County, Minnesota. The Station will serve as a future link to a stop along the Red Rock Corridor hard rail line that will connect the Twin Cities’ southeastern suburbs to Saint Paul and Minneapolis. As one of the first stops along the Red Rock Corridor, this transit station will set the stage for future developments along the corridor. The design process involved collaboration and input from the City, County and Metro Transit.

    This station will be the first building constructed in a 300 acre multi-use development and it was important from the client’s perspective for this small structure to create a presence in this vast open landscape. To achieve this, a large sloping canopy creates a symbolic welcoming gesture to commuters and defines an exterior waiting area and public plaza. ...

  • Project Profile: 'Pitch Perfect'

    about a day ago from archinect.com

    Each year, the NLA (New London Architecture) runs a competition celebrating the best in home extensions and improvements.  Now in its seventh year, the 2018 shortlist shows more than ever the value of good design in home improvements, and how architects can work with tight constraints to create an intrinsically unique solution to a family situation.

    Photo: Anna+Tam © nimtim architects ltd

    Nimtim’s shortlisted project is no exception; a young family needing extra space, privacy, and addressing this on a multi-levelled site. The result is a modern, sleek echo of the adjoining terraced roofscape, and a considered approach to lighting and heating within this elegant design. 

    Photo: Anna+Tam © nimtim architects ltd

    The use of timber on both the external and the internal creates a cohesion throughout the project, and the way in which the existing ground floor layout of the home has been addressed, gives the impression on the interior that this is not an addition but a natural evolution of t...

  • David Adjaye’s 800-foot, hand-cast concrete condo tower in NY's Financial District revealed

    about a day ago from archinect.com

    Developer Lightstone has finally presented the first official reveal of 130 William, the highly anticipated condominium tower designed by British architect Sir David Adjaye. His first tower in city, Adjaye will be adding to Manhattan's iconic skyline with a 800-foot, 66-story residential tower in the Financial district.

    Rendering courtesy of Lightstone.

    The newly released design is a marked departure from early conceptual studies of the tower, which showed a gold prism against rigid rows of arched windows. The windows remain arched, but are varied in scheme and plans for the tower now include an additional 50 extra feet and an extra 5 stories. Adjaye's design has also traded gold for concrete, a refreshing break from the sleek steel and heavily glassed high rises that have become ubiquitous in this part of the city.

  • Steven Holl Architects' Maggie's Centre at Barts is now open

    about 2 days ago from archinect.com

    Over two years after the groundbreaking, the new Maggie's Centre Barts in Central London finally opened earlier this week. Located throughout the UK, Maggie's Centres offer free practical and emotional support for people who live with cancer and their loved ones.

    Steven Holl Architects, along with UK firm jmarchitects, designed the 3-story building as a “vessel within a vessel within a vessel”. The new Maggie's Centre replaces a 1960s brick structure, adjacent to a 17th-century stone structure by James Gibbs.

    Photo: Iwan Baan.

    Built next to St. Bartholomew’s Hospital (London's oldest hospital), the Centre's exterior shows off a translucent glass facade that gives the structure a glowing appearance. The facade has colored glass fragments arranged in horizontal bands like a musical staff, in reference to the “neume notation” of 13-century Medieval music, SHA describes.

  • China reportedly building refugee camps on North Korean border

    about 2 days ago from archinect.com

    A Chinese county along the border with North Korea is constructing refugee camps intended to house thousands of migrants fleeing a possible crisis on the Korean Peninsula, according to an internal document that appears to have been leaked from China’s main state-owned telecommunications company.



    The Times reports that one of China’s most prominent experts on North Korea called building the refugee camps “absolutely reasonable.”

  • The new billion-dollar U.S. embassy in London doesn't want to look like a fortress

    about 2 days ago from archinect.com

    At $1 billion, it is the most expensive embassy ever constructed. But its designers say the new American chancery on the Thames River marks a paradigm shift: The U.S. Embassy here will exude openness while hiding all the clever ways it defends itself from attack. After decades of building American embassies that look brutalist or bland, like obvious fortresses, the soon-to-be-opened chancery in London is a crystalline cube, plopped down in the middle of a public park, without visible walls. 



    Image via the U.S. Embassy in London's Twitter

    The KieranTimberlake-designed U.S. Embassy in London is preparing for its grand opening on January 16, and the building pleasantly departs from the increasingly common drab 'fortress' chic that American chanceries in cities with heightened risk of terror attacks have adopted. 

    Image via the U.S. Embassy in London's Twitter

    Pulling off a seemingly transparent and welcoming look while still employing state-of-the-art defensive strategies and gadgetry (it even has a pseudo-moat) isn't cheap though — the crystalline 'sugar cube' comes with a hefty $1-billion price tag and takes the title of the most expensive embassy ever built.

  • 7th edition of the Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism\Architecture opens tomorrow in Nantou Old Town

    about 2 days ago from archinect.com

    Currently the only biennial exhibition in the world to be based exclusively on the set themes of Urbanism and Urbanization, the Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism\Architecture in Shenzhen will open for its 7th edition tomorrow, Dec 15th. Initiated in 2005 by the Shenzhen Municipal Government and joined by neighboring Hong-Kong in 2007, the co-organized biennale addresses both the material aspects of urban development as well as the many social aspects of city living in the context of rapid growth. 

    Curated by Hou Hanrou and the founding partners of URBANUS, Liu Xiaodu and Meng Yan, the exhibition's theme this year is “Cities, Grow in Difference." With more than 200 exhibitors including MVRDV, the French artist Pierre Huyghes, the Dutch artist Rob Voerman and the Chinese architect John Lin, participants will explore the urban concept of “coexistence” and its role in the future development of urban villages and their place among the swiftly developing cities of China.

  • CHS Field by Snow Kreilich Architects

    about 2 days ago from archinect.com

    CHS Field forms a transition from St. Paul’s vibrant Lowertown Arts District of 19th century warehouses into the natural amenities of riverfront parks and trails. With just 7,000 seats, the ballpark is conceived first as a park, a green space in the city. The seating bowl and playing field are located below street level, allowing for a vibrant street level walkway all around the field. The suites, club and pressbox hover above the concourse in a light steel frame pavilion with a warm wood canopy. Concourse amenities are pushed back, carving into the hillside. 

    The enclosed spaces of the ballpark are intentionally minimized in order to allow a connection to the Lowertown neighborhood, the city skyline and to the river from within the park. The design strategy is evocative of the district’s steel fire escapes as light and porous counterpoints to the weight and massing of the surrounding warehouses. 

    The ballpark is the home of the Saint Paul Saints, a leader in reinventing sports ente...

  • From London to Kuala Lumpur: Serpentine Pavilion on the move.

    about 2 days ago from archinect.com

    The Serpentine Pavilion 2017, designed this year by Germany-based architect Francis Kere, will be moved to Malaysia by early next year. “Thanks to the generous donations by a group of philanthropists, Ilham Gallery now has a prestigious architectural commission in its collection. “It was a surprising yet very welcome bit of news to be the new custodian of this exciting work,” said Ilham Gallery director Rahel Joseph.



    In an exciting and unexpected outcome, Francis Kere's serpentine pavilion will be given renewed life with a permanent move to Kuala Lumpur next year. With the final site still unknown, the transition was made possible by a plethora of donations and support. 

    The short shelf life and physical ephemerality of architecture's competitions and their constructs have become a potent theme of debate in contemporary discourse, and as such, it is invigorating to see such a positive outcome to the Serpentine's pavilion competition.

    Kere's pavilion was inspired by the tree that serves as a central meeting point for life in his home town of Gando, Burkina Faso, Francis Kéré design is a responsive Pavilion that seeks to connect its visitors to nature – and each other. An expansive roof, supported by a central steel framework, mimics a tree’s canopy, allowing air to circulate freely while offering shelter against London rain and summer heat.

    To see a walkthrough of the pavilion's inception and ins...

  • Koehler House by Snow Kreilich Architects

    about 2 days ago from archinect.com

    Built by an active retired couple to be used several months of the year as retreat, the small house engages the Bay of Fundy’s large and rugged landscape, 57 acres and a mile of rocky coastline. The construction materials, stone, glass, wood, aluminum and stainless steel, resist the caustic marine environment. 

    In high winds, stiffened floor plates resist lateral load, allowing the building envelope to be largely composed of glass. The retreat is designed to slow the activities of every day life which are then permeated by the presence of the uninterrupted ocean horizon.

  • Tiffany Brown wants to bring more black women into the architecture field with her project “400 Forward”

    about 3 days ago from archinect.com

    “I try to be the face that I was looking for growing up,” Brown said. “So if I go into a room or an auditorium and just one person is interested in architecture, then I’ve accomplished my mission.” The name comes from a milestone this past August, when the 400th African-American woman became licensed as an architect. There are 110,000 licensed architects in the country.



    Raised in Detroit, architectural designer Tiffany Brown won a 2017 Knight Arts Challenge grant for her project “400 Forward”, which aims to bring in more black girls and women into the field of architecture and urban planning. According to Brown, only 0.3 percent of U.S. architects are black women.

    about 3 days ago from archinect.com

    Celebrating its upcoming 250th anniversary year, the Royal Academy of Arts will open a new campus to the public in May 2018. The design for the redevelopment is by Sir David Chipperfield CBE RA, and will bring new (and free) collections to the public with 70% more space than the current footprint. The development will also join Burlington House and Burlington Gardens to unify the two-acre campus.

    Exciting tours and exhibitions are planned, celebrating both the history of the institution and works from students in the RA schools. This mix, and the promise of free entry to collections is certain to bring more people to the institution. The artist and architect-led RA will also encourage public involvement with the new Architecture Studio, set in The Dorfman Senate Rooms.  These creative spaces invite not only engagement, but the opportunity for the public to become part of this interaction of art and architecture.

  • NIMBYs in Boise find success in establishing neighborhoods as conservation districts

    about 3 days ago from archinect.com

    In the East End, a plan for a home on Mobley Drive off Warm Springs Avenue spurred a group of neighbors to start organizing what the city calls a conservation district. The house would have been two stories and narrow, while most nearby homes are single-level ranch-style structures built in the 1950s.



    A 16-year-old ordinance in Boise that allows for the establishment of conservation districts is coming back in favor as neighborhood groups have figured out they can use it to quash projects they don't like. Conservation districts are similar to historic ones in that they define development through the regulation of architectural styles, height, massing, and uses of buildings. Through their establishment, property owners decide the district’s contours and which uses, building types or design features are allowed.

    In Boise, such ordinances have been used to successfully restrict massive parking lots and prevent the demolition of homes. Now, in the East End neighborhood, community members are pushing for a conservation district in order to curb the building of a two-story, 30-foot-wide home that would clash with the street's dominating midcentury architecture. A hearing was scheduled with the Planning and Zoning Commission for Monday, but the developers withdrew their application befo...

  • Meanwhile in San Francisco: deploying security robots to keep away homeless people

    about 3 days ago from archinect.com

    In San Francisco, autonomous crime-fighting robots that are used to patrol parking lots, sports arenas, and tech company campuses are now being deployed to keep away homeless people. [...] Last week, the City of San Francisco ordered the SF SPCA to keep its robot off the streets or be fined up to $1,000 per day for operating on sidewalks without a permit [...]



    When you're in Silicon Valley, everything looks like a tech solution. The same logic has been increasingly applied to San Francisco's overwhelming homelessness crisis where a growing legion of security robots — armed with lasers, sensors, cameras, and GPS — have been autonomously patrolling parking lots, campuses, and now also public sidewalks to deter houseless neighbors from setting up tent camps.

    One local non-profit recently drew the ire of the City of San Francisco though for operating their security robot "in the public right-of-way without a proper approval."

    Attempts of incapacitating and attacking the SPCA robot have been reported, including feces of unknown origin smeared on it.


  • Airbnb announces AR and VR system concepts for renting rooms

    about 3 days ago from archinect.com

    Airbnb announced today (Dec.11) that it’s experimenting with augmented- and virtual-reality technologies to enhance customers’ travel experiences. The company showed off some simple prototype ideas in a blog post, detailing how VR could be used to explore apartments that customers may want to rent, from the comfort of their own homes. Hosts could scan apartments or houses to create 360-degree images that potential customers could view on smartphones or VR headsets.



    Airbnb's vision for their new augmented and virtual reality app would also include a way for hosts to leave notes in certain locations as a guest moves through the space. This would make instructions more clear to guests, especially to those who do not speak the same language. 

  • Windcatcher House by Joshua Paulsen

    about 3 days ago from archinect.com

    “Windcatcher House” was designed for a single mother and her son in Southeastern Utah. The design aims to protect from the harsh desert climate, while utilizing the beneficial attributes of the natural elements. This manifests itself in the focal point of residence, the central hearth, or “windcatcher.” The hearth naturally acts as both the primary cooling and heating source for the home, utilizing passive evaporative cooling through wetted media within the tower, and a wood stove at its base. Thermal mass is utilized through compressed earth blocks surrounding the stove and rammed earth walls, protecting the home from harsh winds and the intense summer sun.
