Urban Life. Connected.

In this video Stephen Owens (Swire Properties Inc), Bernardo Fort-Brescia (Arquitectonica) and Hugh Dutton (Hugh Dutton Associates) tell the story of the design of the Brickell City Centre in Miami and especially the vision behind the CLIMATE RIBBON™, an architectural feature combining precision engineering and environmental design with an elegant sculptural form.

Terna - Germoglio

Hugh Dutton interviendra le 9 décembre 2013 au Musée des Arts et Métiers à Paris, dans le cadre de la conférence «Overhead Lines : The New Start !»pour apporter son regard de designer et exposer l’avancement des projets des pylônes “équilibre” (France, RTE) et “Germoglio” (Italie, Terna, images du prototype ci-dessus).

La conference, organisée par Nexans, réunit les principaux acteurs du marché européen des lignes électriques aériennes, qu’ils soient opérateurs de réseaux, producteurs et/ou distributeurs d’énergie. L’objectif est de mettre en avant les technologies innovantes des lignes aériennes qui aident à résoudre les problématiques de transport d’électricité (design, communication, coût, longévité, isolement,…).

Germogli. This will be the name of the “pylons of the future” we are building in Italy. Do you remember the competition held by Terna we won with our design Dancing with Nature? 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.

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.

The video below presents the design thinking of the architect and researcher Neri Oxman, who is proposing a different way of thinking about the design of things around us: instead of thinking about forms of objects she suggests to understand first their performance and “how they should or need to behave in space as most natural systems do, such as trees”.

These purposes are especially interesting for us as in a past article titled Methodology of complexity (in French) we have defined form as “the spatial configuration of a physical object that is responsible for the relations between that object and the environment”.
