Villa Cortaillod by Keller | Manufacturer references

2 days 11 hours ago

Spatial openness Located on the Lac de Neuchâtel, this single-family home was designed by the architectural office Andrea Pelati with a building volume of 1090 m³ and a usable area of 208 m². Nestled under the garden of the neighbouring building, the interior of the new building shows a view of an impressive landscape. Near-natural far-sightedness The new house lies halfway between the village and the vineyard of Cortaillod. It appears to grow out of the ground below the garden of a building from the 1950s. The new building is barely noticeable from the road. The design blends in with the surroundings, but marks its presence with the stairs set into the roof and arouses the observer's curiosity. Flowing room sequence In the interior a flowing room sequence takes one from the entrance hall through the house. The passageway to the bedrooms is inconspicuous, while the stairs down to the living room appear spacious and inviting. From the living area the view opens out onto the vin… continue

Building Blocks of Innovation: 11 Cutting Edge Materials Set to Shape the Future

2 days 16 hours ago
[ By SA Rogers in Conceptual & Futuristic & Technology. ]

Architecture has looked much the same since early humans first began constructing their own shelter, but that could change soon with the introduction of new materials and technologies producing almost alien-like forms. Woven carbon fiber, ultra-strong but amazingly thin concrete, transparent wood and 3D-printed sandstone are among the innovations that could break free of the traditional constraints and result in a new era of lightweight, durable, versatile forms in all sorts of organic and mathematical shapes.

Building Tall in Manhattan, eVolo Style

2 days 16 hours ago
While four honorable mentions in the eVolo 2018 Skyscraper Competition are focused on Manhattan, only one comes close to approaching a traditional skyscraper. The others, like the first place winner in 2016 that proposed a horizontal skyscraper around Central Park, take a more liberal approach to designing "skyscrapers."

Additive Effect: 3D-printed Skyscrapers:

These skyscrapers littering Manhattan would be built by everybody's favorite 21st-century technology: 3D printing. At such a scale, the towers would take time to "print," so they take on a striated appearance. Yet instead of housing apartments or offices, the skyscrapers would serve as factories for creating cartridges for 3D printing from waste, part of which would be used for the factories' skins. In other words, the towers express what they do — and apparently illustrate a future where just about everything is printed and therefore requires such factories.
