Constructivist Cool: Moscow’s Zuev Workers’ Club

2 days 7 hours ago
[ By Steve in Architecture & Public & Institutional. ]

Workers of the world, relax! The Zuev Workers’ Club building in downtown Moscow was the epitome of Constructivist cool when it opened way back in 1929.

Hipster-sky Hangout

And it’s still plenty chill right now! Indeed, this well-preserved and still fully-functional relic of the Soviet Union’s heady early years would still invoke double-takes – in a good way – should an architectural clone be unveiled today.

Green Roofs: How to Detail Waterproofing Using Liquid Membranes

2 days 13 hours ago
House M / Plan:b arquitectos House M / Plan:b arquitectos

Green roofs are composed of a series of layers that allow vegetation to grow correctly, avoiding leaks that may cause damage to the structure of the building. Although there is a wide variety of options to build them, we're presenting a system composed of a mortar base, a layer of asphalt emulsion, two waterproof asphalt membranes, a drainage layer, and the substrate that will allow the growth of plant species.

To waterproof the areas of parapets and other 'critical' points, the system includes a liquid polyurethane membrane, which allows the entire system to be sealed. Below, you can see some application keys of the different components of a green roof, and the benefits of this liquid impermeable layer.

Slender Strength: The Mighty Grace of the Stainless Steel AIRTable

A sturdy featherweight table? Sounds... contrary to reason. But this contradiction was the very impetus for the design. Created for a research center that’s pushing the boundaries of design and manufacturing using technology and science, the designers--AIRLab, in collaboration with DManD-- sought to dematerialise the typical structure of a table, creating a sense of instability with the visual counterpoint of a solid surface.

7 Rejected Proposals for Sydney Opera House

2 days 17 hours ago

An iconic piece of architecture recognized around the world, the Sydney Opera House was designed by Jørn Utzon, following a 1956 competition that attracted 222 competition entries. Since its opening in 1973, the building has redefined the ambitions of Australia and only last September celebrated its latest milestone: turning completely carbon neutral.

The history behind the Opera House and its creation is as rich as the architecture itself. In 1956 the New South Wales Government called an open competition for the design of two performance halls, for opera and for symphony concerts, hoping to establish Sydney as a major city. Danish architect Jørn Utzon won the competition with an entry that consisted of a few simple sketches that intrigued the jury.

Diseño de espacios en ARCO 2019: Burgos & Garrido en las áreas comunes y Mariana Leguía y Maya Ballén en la zona reservada a Perú

2 days 18 hours ago

La Feria Internacional de Arte Contemporáneo, ARCO, se inaugura el próximo 27 de febrero en Ifema, Madrid,  y mostrará durante 6 días las últimas propuestas artísiticas internacionales. El estudio Burgos & Garrido Arquitectos se ha encargado en esta nueva edición de ARCO del diseño de los espacios comunes de la feria.

Memoria de la propuesta:

ARCO es un enorme espacio horizontal, muy homogéneo en su gran diversidad y que puede ser percibido como un lugar caótico y agotador. No tiene la geometría laberíntica del bazar, pero si su carácter. Hemos tratado de añadir más orden al conjunto de los stands de las galerías para hacer ese espacio más legible y confortable que otros años. Esta ha sido nuestra primera tarea. El margen del proyecto donde se instalan las galerías es pequeño. Es como un puzle en el que todas las piezas han ido encajando durante los años y en el que es no es posible hacer grandes variaciones. Se trata por ello, más bien, pequeñas alteraciones en el orden riguroso de la retícula que facilitan la orientación y los flujos.
