Результаты конкурса An Arch Out Loud competition
Как то я заявил об участии в конкурсе, и даже заплатил за регистрацию, но лето оказалось очень жарким, и ничего достойного на конкурс предоставить я не смог. Но мы вместе можем порадоваться тем работам которые создали архитекторы со всего мира.
The proposal depicts a near future which oscillates between techno-utopia and dystopia, in
which home ownership and housing supply will be deeply affected by technology and global
corporations. It reflects the recent trend of tech companies entering the domain of energy
production and the domestic with “smart” technology.
The project sets up a scenario of production in which a tech giant launches the HAPPI
Corporation (Housing And Power Production Infrastructure), building a network of houses
along rivers which also serve as mini hydro-power plants; the Integrated apparatus. The
homes are rented through house sharing marketplaces for profit.
HAPPI utilizes AI robotics to excavate the river banks extracting sand and combining it with
epoxy resins to print rock-like structures.
These structures are are designed on 3 levels. The ground floor contains the turbine and
leaves the rest of the ground free. The first floor is dedicated to semi-public activities such as
living room, cooking and dining. The second floor contains sleeping areas as well as work
areas. These rock-like objects appear to hover above the ground and blur the boundary
between what seems to be rock formations and military bunker ruins. The proposal is also a
formal exploration of the continuous surface and the Poche’.
Above the Tire
University of Pennsylvania
The autonomous vehicle as new technology innovation in the recent decade certainly will generate a social impact in the coming future. This studio project focused on the micro scale of this new technology agenda and attempt to provide a possibility of the neoteric relationship between single family living style and the autonomous vehicle. Project vigorously engaged with how self-drive cars improve the interior quality of living, gave argument of the relationship between vehicle and house. In term to establish a comprehensive context to bring up the discussion of this relationship between vehicle and house, this project is base on a generic site at Los Angeles with a general slope, such like many of housing property in LA.
As the manifesto of future social impact of autonomous vehicle, this project proposes a newly designed vehicle with using the combination of new technology: the gyroscope and ball tires, to suggest an attitude of how autonomous vehicle drive in the city. The single wheel geometry of vehicle design strongly indicates that car should take less ground from society even when Autonomous technology allows these vehicles playing more spatial role in future society.
Meanwhile, in term of relationship with the house, argument of project advocates an attitude that when the newly designed autonomous vehicle is part of other industry, as an integrated product, and how autonomous vehicle benefits or indicate the further design of interior space of the housing as a product. This project tries to expose a methodology of creating the relationship between new technology object and living style. It suggests a juxtaposition of technology and space in profound architecture language and aim to generate more enlightenment and possibility in upcoming autonomous era.
THE NOT-FOR-LONG HOME
Stav Dror and Liran Messer
Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design
As urban life becomes more and more expensive, we propose to think of the home as a “thing” that can be bought or obtained.
The home becomes a collectible and its parts, replaceable. In such a home, structural elements such as the window, door, stairs, wall or ceiling undergo a process of objectification, they become units arranged in space and the home is articulated as a composition that differs from the traditional approach to figure\ground.
The act of moving units in time becomes the new household and the changing appearance of the home indicates on he who lives in it.
We imagine that one will have his own home collection which he can take with him whenever and wherever he goes. This is living as an ongoing project in which the home becomes an object of desire.
To enable this idea we restructure the floor as a platform.
The floor supplies water and electricity through all its surface, it is fully sloped for drainage and offers storage. The home is free from the basic spatial unit – the room and the floor becomes the most dominant element- enabling the constant change of life and the countless variations of a home.
Urbanism of Stuff
Princeton University School of Architecture
An Urbanism of Stuff is a siteless model for shared domestic space. The proposition begins
at the scale of furniture. By shrinking privately owned property to the barest minimum — that
is, a bed and small storage space — the project extracts and recomposes excess material into
an Urbanism of Stuff.
