Material World Seminar: Byggematerialer i Arkitekturen / d.24.april

Dansk Arkitektur Center og Dansk Selskab for Materialeteknologi inviterer til seminar om brugen af byggematerialer i arkitekturen. Afsættet for seminaret er Dansk Arkitektur Centers aktuelle udstilling Material World, der viser, hvordan nye måder at anvende materialer på løbende er med til at udvikle og forny arkitekturen med nye overflader, nye udtryk og nye oplevelser.

Hvis man vil toppe DAC’s nye og skamroste MATERIAL WORLD udstilling med både guf og syltetøj, så er det bare med at stikke af fra tegnestuen på tirsdag d. 24 og deltage i DAC’s gratis heldagsseminar hvor du kan opleve en fornem række af internationale og danske oplægsholdere. Husk tilmelding!

Engineering Koolhaas

“Who says that structure should not be reinvented?. . . Who says that reinventing structure cannot be creative?”

(Rem Koolhaas, 2003)

ARUP Journal har siden 2005 udgivet 3 gode artikler om deres arbejde med OMA i forbindelse med CCTV. Og jeg synes det er super fedt at få historien fra ingeniørens tekniske vinkel. Læs alle 3 artikler nedenfor…

Structural engineering design and approvals – Issue 2/2005
“The winning design combines administration and offices, news and broadcasting, programme production and services – the entire process – in a single loop of interconnected activities. The specifics of the structure evolved in tandem with the specifics of the building as they in turn evolved, a notable example being the placement of doubleheight studios within the Towers and Base, which significantly influenced the structural form”.

Building the structure – issue 2/2008
“Erecting two massive leaning Towers, and connecting them with a 9-13 storey Overhang suspended 36 storeys in the air, presented the structural engineers and contractors with unprecedented design and construction challenges. This is the third Arup Journal article about the CCTV (China Central Television) building in Beijing; it covers the construction of this unique project”. (Download PDF)

Services engineering design – Issue 3/2005
“The CCTV Headquarters’ three-dimensional layout is designed to break down the ‘ghettoes’ that tend to form in the process of making TV programmes. The building’s ‘loop’ form encourages staff to mix, creating a better end-product more economically and efficiently”. (Download PDF)

ARUP: 3D Urbanism + Plausible Futures

[vimeo 1565212]

3D Urbanism: multidisciplinary Realtime quantitative simulation

billede-102ARUPUltimately designers aim is to achieve an integrated environment where – during the design process, including the early stages – the designer can generate a three-dimensional geometrical design, set up inter-related analysis and optimisation routines and receive meaningful feedback in realtime. Towards this ultimate goal Arup made a first feasible step”.

“3D Urbanism” is a research project aiming at bringing discreet quantitative analytical solutions (urban design, moving vehicles, moving people, acoustics, lighting and climate) into a unified Realtime interactive environment to demonstrate performance based design to designer, client and city planner”.

Plausible Futures – Can Technology win the day?

“A short film produced to set the mood for an intensive workshop on plausible futures. It examines the possible directions in which the world is currently heading. Touching on global challenges such as resource depletion, rapid urbanization and climate change the film uses rich visuals to engage audiences with big questions about our human future”.
