En la reciente edición de la feria Hostelco, Fundación ONCE ha aportado el diseño de una habitación que incorpora múltiples funcionalidades de ayuda para personas con diferentes grados y tipos de discapacidad con el objetivo de integrar de manera habitual muchos de estas soluciones para lograr una estancia normalizada para todos los posibles usuarios de una instalación hotelera.

Desde esta perspectiva, Fundación ONCE llevará a Hostelco una habitación convencional formada por la zona del dormitorio y el cuarto de baño y colocará balizas de localización inteligentes, denominadas beepcons, diseñadas para facilitar a las personas con discapacidad visual la identificación y localización de los objetos cercanos en lugares cerrados. Funciona con bluetooth mediante una app disponible para IOS y Android.

British architect and Pritzker Laureate Sir James Stirling (22 April 1926 – 25 June 1992) grew up in Liverpool, one of the two industrial powerhouses of the British North West, and began his career subverting the compositional and theoretical ideas behind the Modern Movement. Citing a wide-range of influences—from Colin Rowe, a forefather of Contextualism, to Le Corbusier, and from architects of the Italian Renaissance to the Russian Constructivist movement—Stirling forged a unique set of architectural beliefs that manifest themselves in his works. Indeed his architecture, commonly described as "nonconformist," consistently caused annoyance in conventional circles.

684 Miles of Wire: Robots Complete World’s First 3D-Printed Steel Bridge

2 days 6 hours ago
[ By WebUrbanist in Conceptual & Futuristic & Technology. ]

Weighing close to 10,000 pounds, the complex shape and curvy form of this stainless steel bridge reflects the multi-axis printers that made it, line by molten line, and help highlight the potential of metal-printing technologies.

The MX3D Bridge was designed by Joris Laarman Lab (with engineering help from Arup and other partners) and spans just over 40 feet. It is constructed from a new type of steel, laid down by a team of robots. There is a certain roughness that is a byproduct of the printing process, which could be buffed away, but also may be left to highlight the novel method of construction.

Architectural styles derive their uniqueness by demonstrating the construction techniques, political movements, and social changes that make up the zeitgeist of a place in a particular moment of time. Whether it was the rebirth of art and culture with Renaissance architecture, or the steel skyscrapers that emerged in the post-war movement, each stylistic change tells us something different about the transitions of architectural history. But what if architecture rejected a critical regionalist approach, and buildings took on the characteristics of another place? These seven images made for Expedia provide a glimpse into what some of our favorite architectural icons would look like if they were built in a different style.

As tends to occur in various Latin American capitals, the historical center of Lima —also known as Cercado de Lima— faces simultaneous processes of deterioration, conservation and transformation. Wandering through its streets, its neo-colonial and republican architecture mixes with some major architectural projects which came about during Peru's modernist movement: "golden age" of public architecture during the mid 20th century.
