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.

56 Leonard Street by Herzog & de Meuron, source: plataformaarquitectura.cl

Tronic Studio tapped into their architecture backgrounds for the film they created for Herzog & de Meuron’s 57-story hi-rise residential tower in Tribeca. Combining a live action helicopter shoot with extensive CG modeling, the film shows the poetic beauty of how the building was conceived, beginning with the elements of each floor descending from the Manhattan sky and landing into place on top of the Anish Kapoor sculpture.

Oggi 11 novembre è festa nazionale in Francia, ma gli italiani a Parigi sembrano lavorare con più energia del normale.

Sono le 10 e sono appena tornato da un rapido incontro con l’architetta e regista Morena Campani (Cabinet Projets Culturels Paris). Abbiamo scambiato molte idee, toccato molti argomenti e ci siamo lasciati con un gran numero di idee che vorremmo realizzare insieme. Un po’ scherzosamente ma anche molto seriamente ho detto a Morena che la aggiungero’ alla lunga lista degli architetti che lavorano senza costruire edifici (#thinkark).

E’ stato un’incontro molto proficuo, abbiamo parlato di tutta l’architettura che sta prima e dopo il progetto tradizionalmente inteso, di arte del quotidiano, di comunicazione web, meipi, esoterismo, architettura sensoriale e starchitects.

Morena Campani parteciperà sicuramente alla serie di interviste che stiamo preparando in francese sul rapporto fra l’architettura e l’ingegneria e, oltre a questo, abbiamo avuto un’idea molto interessante che spero interesserà i lettori del blog: si tratta di un film documentario sugli studi di architettura alternativi e d’avanguardia in Europa.
