>marlies rohmer: smarties


از منظر رفتار، بنا یه ایده ی خوب در خودش داره! بنا با وجود سنگینی خودش بر فضای شهری، درزیر خودش یه میدون گاه شهری با کاربری های متنوع درست کرده!
چه در پرده ی اول با اون تاب جالب و شاد و شنگولش!!! 🙂
و چه در پرده ی بعد که یه میدون گاهی کامل رو شکل داده….
ما خیلی امروز در کشور میدون گاهی‌های انسانی رو نداریم!!! هر چی هم به اسم میدون داریم فلکه ست….

‘smarties’ by amsterdam-based architect marlies rohmer is a multi-storey student dorm building 
for the utrecht university campus in the netherlands. in part designed to alleviate the housing 
shortage among the young population in the city of utrecht, the building offers 380 single and multiple units.

wrapped in a pixelated skin of multi-coloured aluminum panels, the building is a visual landmark
within the campus grounds. an open plaza under a 20 metre cantilever out front serves as an 
urban meeting spot, featuring a playful swing stage for seating. the covered plaza is visually 
extended beyond the entrance and lobby, creating another pocket of outdoor space in a carved out 
volume from the structure’s underbelly.

a number of communal spaces are provided within the complex, aiming to provide a living space
that facilitates encounters and communication among its residents.

>Morphing Material Keeps Hot Coffee at Ideal Temperature


با استفاده از ایده‌ی کولرهای صنعتی ، لیوانی طراحی شده که بتونه با سطح تماس بسیار زیادی که با مایع داره، خیلی خیلی زودتر بتونه مثلا چای یا قهوه رو به دمای مناسب نوشیدن برسونه……

temperature controlled mug pcm 1

Buying a hot beverage can be a maddening experience. At first it’s way too hot to drink, and then it cools down so quickly that you don’t have a chance to drink it before it’s tepid and unappealing. The same thing happened to German researchers Klaus Sedlbauer and Herbert Sinnesbichler: while walking around an outdoor Bavarian Christmas market, they noticed that their mulled cider was never at optimal drinking temperature. So rather than complain like the rest of us, they set out to find a solution.
temperature controlled mug pcm
That solution is phase change material (PCM). PCM is a wax-like substance that’s already used in construction and clothing because of its remarkable temperature-regulating capabilities. Sedlbauer and Sinnesbichler reasoned that they could put PCM to work keeping beverages at their ideal drinking temperature, whether that’s hot or cold.
temperature controlled mug pcm 2
PCM is able to absorb and maintain heat or cold for long periods of time. It melts when warmed and solidifies when cooled. Different PCMs have different melting points. If a hollow-framed mug were filled with PCM that becomes liquid at exactly 136.4 degrees Fahrenheit (the ideal drinking temperature for warm beverages) and the mug’s reservoir filled with a warm beverage, the PCM would absorb excess heat, bringing the liquid down to drinking temperature and keeping it there long enough for you to enjoy your coffee. It works for cold drinks, as well, but that would require buying a different mug for different temperatures: one for hot, one for cold and one for icy. The researchers are currently shopping their idea around and believe it may be on the market by the end of 2009.

>AE 22: Logs


والا با کنده های درخت همه جا نمی شه چنین کارایی کرد! آخه همه جا این قدر درخت اضافی نداره! 🙂
ولی کار جالبیه ….

Think of buildings made from logs, and small cabins along the lines of the below image probably come to mind. These distinctive buildings date back to the 17th century in the United States, centuries or millennia earlier in Europe. Exterior walls are constructed of stacked round or square logs made from local trees; the space in-between is filled with mud and grass. The logs interlock those of the perpendicular walls at the corners, where the ends of the logs are then visible.

Three Indian Men in Front of a Cabin

In Stovewood or Stackwood buildings the end of the log is all that is visible. Exterior walls are built from logs about one foot long that are normally used for stoves (hence the name), at least centuries ago when the method was popular in Canada and the United States. The space in between is filled with lime mortar. Of course it was not as popular as log cabins like the ones above, but the influence of stovewood walls, directly or indirectly, and the use of logs as an architectural elemtent is found in some recent houses in Europe.

Flag by Propeller Z (spotted in Edition29) is an addition to a small farmhouse in Fahndorf, Austria, a residence for the architects. The addition extends an existing “U”-shaped building, changing it into a lower-case “y.” This extension reaches towards the top of the ground’s slope, looking like it rests on it on one side and the existing on the other. One side of the new portion is full-height glass, and the opposite side fills the oversized metal frame with stacked wood.

Unlike traditional stackwood walls, these cut logs are actually used for firewood, meaning the north elevation changes over the course of the winter. It is like the Somis Hay Barn by SPF:a, where horses eat the hay that lines the exterior walls. The architects are quoted in Metropolis Magazine: “There’s a wood stack behind every building here, and we wanted to connect to the context without necessarily having a pitched roof or something.”
[Flag by Propeller Z | photo by Hertha Hurnaus | image source]
In Mimi Zeiger‘s soon-to-be-released Micro Green three projects with cut sections of logs are included among the thirty-six projects. An example similar to Flag is Writer’s Block II by Cheng + Snyder, where the logs on end are infill within a larger frame. Flak (Flake House), originally in Nantes, France, by OLGGA Architects, on the other hand, melds traditional log cabins with stackwood walls.
[Flak by OLGGA Architects | image source]
Flak was a response for a 2006 competition CAUE 72 and was designed as a portable folie. The two pieces can be located at will on site, propped up on pieces of timber. Placed close to and at a slight angle to each other, as in the photos here, they resemble a “broken branch,” as the architects describe it. This is furthered by the way the cut sections on the end project at different distances, like a rough cut through a once singular building, not a clean cut with a giant chain saw.
[Flak by OLGGA Architects | image source]
Another Micro Green project is Piet Hein Eek‘s Log House for composer Hans Liberg in Hilversum, Netherlands. Like Flak, long trunks define the side walls and roof, with cut logs exposed on the ends. Here they effect is like a large stack of logs, firewood for Paul Bunyan. But a close look at the below photo reveals what appears to be a rectangular incision in the elevation with the log sections.
[Log House by Piet Hein Eek | image source]
Well, that turns out to be an operable shutter that lifts to open up the small interior to the landscape (a small shutter and window on the adjacent side opens this vista even larger). Piet actually cut the shutters from the stack of wood, held in place during construction to achieve the effect of a solid stack of wood. Open it is a building; closed it is a work of art.

>taras lesko: papercraft AUDI A7


از وقتی کار با احجام در فضای سه بعدی با ساختارهای Mesh امری مرسوم شده خیلی نمی گذره، این روزها به راحتی با تقریب زدن هر حجمی به صورت مش و برش هر واحد اون می شه حجم رو در ابعاد استودیویی تولید کرد؛
قابل توجه رفقای معمار و طراحم؛ این روش خیلی خیلی خوبه …

the 2012 AUDI A7, on which lesko’s model is based

created by designer taras lesko and on display at the new york auto show 2011

this all-paper rendition of the 2012 AUDI A7 is the largest papercraft model of a vehicle ever produced.

assembled over the course of 245 hours, the model measures 4ft x 2ft x 2ft (1.2m x 0.6m x 0.6m).
lesko used 285 sheets of paper to make the 750 parts necessary for its creation.

>Amy Genser


فکر می کنین این صحنه های خیال‌انگیز دریایی توسط چه متریالی و با چه الگویی ایجاد می شن!؟ 🙂
یه نگاه به توضیح بندازین اگه حدس‌تون نیومد……
Amy Genser

While at the Architectural Digest Home Show, I discovered the amazing artwork of Amy Genser. These mixed media relief pieces are made of rolled up paper and resemble an underwater reef. I can’t imagine how much time it takes to roll up all of those pieces of paper. Pictured above is “Float.”
