José Noriega: Obra gráfica y escultura

10 April, 2018 - 10:39

“Siempre me han gustado los basureros. Encontrar objetos que han perdido la capacidad de uso para el que fueron concebidos, y a los que yo veo hermosos por su forma y por llevar las huellas del tiempo sobre ellos. Hierros oxidados, maderas trabajadas por la lluvia y los golpes… Vistos con otros ojos se convierten de nuevo en protagonistas en las esculturas que presento en esta ocasión.

También las obras en papel de esta exposición son fruto de este proceso. Restos inservibles del entintado de un taller de grabado tienen la oportunidad de expresarse por sí mismos y contar una historia propia y diferente. Me acerco con ellas de nuevo a la pintura que espero recuperar para mi próxima exposición”.

José Noriega es arquitecto y compagina su labor profesional con la docente: fue profesor de proyectos en la Escuela de Arquitectura de Madrid durante 33 años y actualmente es Profesor de Dibujo Libre en la Escuela de Arquitectura de Toledo.

The city of Rome attracts millions of visitors each year to explore its ancient ruins and to learn about how the culture and architecture has transformed over thousands of years. Now, after many years of tedious construction, visitors will be able to see the city as it has never been seen before, through a 1:250 model of imperial Rome, known as the Plastico di Roma Imperiale. The plaster model, which was commissioned by Mussolini in 1933 and completed in 1971, depicts Rome as it stood in the 4th century under the reign of Constantine I.

This Stackable Emergency Shelter Can Be Assembled in Under 15 Minutes

10 April, 2018 - 08:00

MADWORKSHOP Fellows Jeremy Carman and Jayson Champlain have designed a unique approach to emergency post-disaster shelters. The 2017 Fellows of the MADWORKSHOP Foundation created "Shelter Squared" as a response to "the current scarcity of design-oriented solutions to emergencies."

Overall, the design utilizes cost-effective, recyclable materials to provide a meaningful alternative to the current standard of post-disaster shelters, described the architects.

Shelter Squared offers an operable fabric enclosure, comfortable sleeping quarters, lockable storage and booth seating, all while only occupying a "modest 50 square feet." The modular shelters can also combine with adjacent units to create a sense of community among units. The lightweight units can be easily stacked and stored on-site and take less than 15 minutes to assemble. Also waterproof for ease of maintenance, the shelters utilize Velcro connections to simplify assembly.

Architectural Sketches 003 – Japanese Playhouse

10 April, 2018 - 07:01

Architectural sketches typically fall into two distinctive camps (other than “Great!” or “terrible”) and the relative purpose of those sketches seem to reflect the time period with when the sketch was actually created … during design or during construction. I would also feel safe going out on a limb and say that most people typically fall solidly in one camp or the other.

I’d like to think I am one of those rare unicorns that sketches during both design and construction … maybe it’s more of a small-firm type thing where I am required to work on my projects from beginning to end. That’s part of the reason I am using the particular sketches I am for today’s post – my involvement in a project that I might not normally have made time for.

We have two high school seniors that come to our office for several hours, every Monday through Thursday, as part of a work program in their school. These two seniors (Bethany and Lauren)are both going to college in the Fall to continue their architectural educations but until that time comes, we get them for a few months. During this time, we give them tasks to do that we think would benefit them this coming fall – this means that they work in Revit, SketchUp, they get drawing assignments (they had to sketch a bell pepper – elevations, sections, etc.), and we have them build some models for us. Since this is a work program for educational purposes, they do not get paid for their time in our office, and we do not have them take on billable work. Pretty straightforward introduction to architecture 101 type stuff.

Most recently, we have had them going through an exercise where they have to read technical drawings and then build a model from those drawings. Rather than give them something giant that would require an exorbitant amount of time and knowledge, we thought that one of my playhouses would be just about the perfect size.

Stay High: 3-Story Container Apartment Built into a Crane in Amsterdam

10 April, 2018 - 03:00
[ By SA Rogers in Boutique & Art Hotels & Travel. ]

Transformed into a compact three-story apartment, a decommissioned 1957 crane overlooking Amsterdam’s IJ River from a former industrial harbor now offers tourists a highly unusual vantage point of the city. It’s the lone survivor of a mass demolition of old cranes that once stood on KNSM Island, and hasn’t been in active use since 1979, when container transport made it obsolete. It stood as a sort of curiosity for decades before Dutch designer Edward van Vliet renovated it into a luxurious residence with a homey yet fittingly industrial feel.

Law Firm at Potsdamer Platz by IONDESIGN | Office facilities

10 April, 2018 - 00:00

<b>A law firm is not an advertising agency</b> Business premises are both external image of a company and expression of the self-image. When designing a law firm, the requirements are different than when designing an advertising agency or an IT startup. Therefore, it is important to first get to know the working methods and the clients in order to optimize the interior design individually. A responsible approach to design does not mean tearing down walls randomly and forcing open space office structures, as is often the case. Although it is clearly noticeable that even conservative work environments are becoming more open and subject to change, a law firm is not a co-working space. Thus, the precise built-in cabinets made of solid oak convey reliability, tables designed especially for the law firm give every rooms an individual character. Light-dark contrasts as well as a neon light object in the reception area of ​​the law firm create dramatic effects. <b>Each room is an independ… continue
