FUTURISTIC ARCHITECTURE

Some of this buildings are in process, some of them presents the future and some of them are already built. The future is here…

Just take a look anf you will feel like you are in a science fiction movie such as Star Wars, Divergernt or Hunger Games. Other buildings remind me Gaudis’ Architecture (he was a very modern architect) and other remind me the recarnation of Pisa Tower in Italy.

Houses from the future with cube styling or facade glazing, hotels in the ocean (this hotel excists and it is located in China). The design and the light of the hotel captures curiosities eyes and provides people with a great and beautiful aesthetic. Whereas some other buildings they don’t provide you such a good aesthetic but they are very modern helping the brain rationalize the digital grotesque of SCI-Arc into something more place-able.

Award for Facade Engineering Excellence

The award for facade engineering excellence was won by Andreas Architects for the facade engineering work in Abu Dhabi.

The Towers are the famous Al Bahr Towers. The elements that are used on the Tower expand and contract according to the sun’s position reducing by that solar gaining whereas making the offices independence on artificial light.

Eco productive and fascinating building…

Great Bravo!

THE SPIRAL

Located at the intersection of the High Line and the newly developed Hudson Boulevard Park on Manhattan’s new western frontier, THE SPIRAL extends the green space of the former train tracks in a spiraling motion towards the sky – from High Line to the skyline.

The 1005 ft high-rise is a unique hybrid that intertwines a continuous green pathway with workspaces on every level. The chain of amenity spaces and terraces originates at THE SPIRAL’s main entrance on 34th street and Hudson Boulevard. The spiral wraps around the tower, which becomes gradually slimmer towards the top. This creates unique floor configurations that will cater to a diverse community of tenants making the building a lively place for businesses of different scales – giving tenants a stake in the buildings iconic skyline presence.

Inside, every terrace becomes a double height atrium with impressive views over Manhattan, offering a more informal setting for meetings, events and recreational activities. These spaces connect multiple levels in the building, offering an alternative to elevators to encourage physical activity and interaction amongst colleagues. THE SPIRAL sets a new standard for the contemporary workplace, where nature becomes an integrated part of the work environment while spatial features are continuously adaptable to the changing needs of the tenants and their organizations.

The stepping form of THE SPIRAL echoes the architecture of New York City’s classic stepped setback skyscrapers and is the natural evolutionary step in the Tishman Speyer portfolio. The silhouette of THE SPIRAL resonates with the iconic architecture of Rockefeller Center while its modern materials and detailing place it at the forefront of contemporary high-rise design on a path to become a future classic on the Manhattan skyline.

This marvellous facade building is located in Canada.

The most amazing thing on the exterior is the series of triangles that comes from the result of an algorithm. These triangles shapes gives the aesthetic of a cloud – like shape building.

If you look closely on the picture you will observe the opaque and the transparent windows. Most of them are opaque and some of them are transparent. This beautiful differrence between the opaque & transparent windows creates an amazing light-shadow effect in the interior of the building.

Another modern thing you can  actually even notice from the pictures is the modern style of the interior area, which not includes any lecture halls. This goes way ahead from the buildings that we used to see. This building bring the students and the faculty closer together and promotes a flexibility of learning.

Taking a walk through the building tou can observe the white board on the walls written by students whop design or calculating their results.

The classrooms are equiped with the latest technologies and it even includes a hub for enterpreneurship, activity and collaboration  where students do their practise and become excellent technicians.
