b720 en la sala Aedes de Berlín

2 days 10 hours ago

“Enchanting Traces” o Trazos y Encantos” culmina un año de actividades y eventos que han celebrado los veinte años del estudio b720 con oficinas abierta en Barcelona y Madrid.

La galería Aedes de Berlín puede decirse que es una institución única. Fundada hace ya cuarenta años por Kristin Feireiss y Helga Retzer, y codirigida por Hans-Jürgen Commerell, nació con el objetivo de cubrir un vació que había en Berlín, el de la exposición y debate en torno a la arquitectura. Pronto su actividad captó el interés internacional y en la actualidad es un punto de referencia en cuanto a la reflexión sobre cómo evoluciona la arquitectura y, cada vez más, sobre el desarrollo de la ciudad. Y en esa búsqueda de respuestas apuestan por dar voz a ideas frescas, nuevos talentos, experiencias que ocurren fuera de Alemania, para enriquecer el debate y proponer procesos y caminos a seguir, tanto en Berlín como en otras grandes ciudades.

Skyscrapers of 2018: Soaring Beyond the Archetypal Crystal Tower

2 days 10 hours ago
© Viktor Sukharukov © Viktor Sukharukov

Either as singular outcroppings or as part of a bustling center, skyscrapers are neck-craning icons across major city centers in the world. A modern trope of extreme success and wealth, the skyscraper has become an architectural symbol for vibrant urban hubs and commercial powerhouses dominating cities like New York, Dubai, and Singapore.

While skyscrapers are omnipresent, 2018 introduced new approaches, technologies, and locations to the high-rise typology. From variations in materiality to form, designs for towers have started to address aspects beyond simply efficiency and height, proposing new ways for the repetitive form to bring unique qualities to city skylines. Below, a few examples of proposals and trends from 2018 that showcase the innovative ideas at work:

2 days 12 hours ago

A series of concave concrete panels hoisted on slender plank-like columns sit amongst the vast rural plains of Sweden, silently redefining the typology of an otherwise utilitarian structure. White Arkitekter's recent proposal for a water tower in Varberg is a slim horizontal structure, deviating from the typical, vertical and round design. Titled VÅGA, it features two tanks for storing water within its unique shape that may actually be better suited to its purpose.
