The designer of the dancing pylons Hugh Dutton and the engineer Pierluigi Bucci from Hugh Dutton Associates were last week in Livorno (Italy) to assist to the load testing of the prototype and we share some photos and a video of this event.

Le nouveau département des Arts de l’Islam, dernier-né des départements du musée du Louvre en chantier à Paris depuis 2008, ouvrira ses portes à la fin de septembre 2012. C’est avec grande émotion que nous célébrons la conclusion de ce chantier exceptionnel qui nous a absorbé pendant 4 ans et nous en profitons pour signaler la mise en place d’un mini-site web dédié à ce projet: louvre.fr/le-nouveau-departement-des-arts-de-l-islam .

In Guangzhou Swire Properties have recently completed a mixed used commercial development taking up a full city block on comprising hotels, offices and shopping including a cultural centre for the city. TaiKoo Hui is a large-scale multi-faceted complex in the thriving heart of the Tianhe Central Business District of Guangzhou, developed and managed by Swire Properties. Offering a gross floor area of approximately 358,000 sqm (exclusive of the cultural center), it incorporates a prime shopping mall, two Grade A office towers, a cultural center, the first Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Guangzhou, and serviced apartments. More info at taikoohui.com

Daylight is a key ingredient to the Taikoo Hui shopping centre, and notably with the intent to flood the mall with light deep into the lower and basement levels. The glass components designed by Hugh Dutton Associates celebrate daylight. They provide sculptural expression that responds to light through filtering it, diffusing it, playing with it’s shadows, reflecting it.

Hugh Dutton Associates were engaged by Swire as specialist design consultants to architects Arquitectonica for all the feature glazing components of the development; notably the main entrance atria boxes, and waving linear skylight down the central spine of the shopping mall.

All’incirca un anno fa, Hugh Dutton ha ricevuto il premio “Architetture Rivelate” per il progetto della Centrale Termica Iride Energia, che abbiamo realizzato a Torino insieme all’architetto Jean Pierre Buffi.

Abbiamo riscoperto questa intervista a Hugh Dutton (in italiano) realizzata in occasione dell’evento e pubblicata da edilportale.

Nell’intervista, oltre al progetto della Centrale Termica Iride Energia, Hugh Dutton cita due importanti lavori sul territorio italiano: la passerella olimpica a Torino, realizzata nel 2006, e i piloni elettrici “Dancing with Nature” che sono attualmente in fase di test e produzione per la società Terna.
