Une autre générosité
Another Generosity explore une nouvelle structure qui consiste en une membrane contenant deux éléments de base: l’air et l’eau. Les structures simples sont combinées pour créer une structure cellulaire visible et dynamique. Les éléments gonflés servent d’intermédiaire entre l’environnement naturel et bâti. Ils répondent à des stimuli externes et parfois invisibles, créant un nouveau type d’expérience, une hésitation momentanée qui augmente notre conscience de notre environnement.

Another Generosity explores a new structure that consists of a membrane holding two basic elements: air and water. The simple structures are combined to create a visible and dynamic cellular structure. The inflated elements mediate between the natural and built environment. They respond to external and sometimes unseen stimuli, creating a new kind of experience, a momentary hesitation that heightens our awareness of our surroundings.

Powerhouse Company

Loop of Wisdom
Architecture studio Powerhouse Company has created a reception building topped with a circular walking trail as part of a development in Chengdu, China. The structures beneath the walking trail will act as a sales pavilion and reception block for the new Unis Chip City development in Chengdu’s Tianfu New District, which is under construction in the southern part of the city. Powerhouse Company connected these two structures with a bright red rooftop walkway, named Loop of Wisdom, which is designed to make the reception block more useable than if it was a standalone building.

Between I you I and I me
BETWEEN | YOU | AND | ME is a wall of sound and light. Like any other wall, it defines an architectural space. Given its ephemeral, dynamic media – ultrasound and beams of light – the wall can be perceived only when the visitor comes close and interacts with it. Two thin membranes of light form a visible frame filled with sound. Multichannel, extremely vectored hypersonic speakers render audible various textures of broken glass: a sound architecture within the wall, comprised of juxtaposed single sound beams, whose constellation changes depending on the visitor’s position. Observed from a distance, the wall fades away: clear transparency and only faintly resonant tones attest to its non-existence.

The Smog Project
Dubai-based architecture firm Znera Space have released “The Smog Project,” a design to clean the air in Delhi, one of the world’s most polluted cities. Shortlisted in the World Architecture Festival’s Experimental Project Category, the Smog Project hopes to address Delhi’s noxious air quality by adding a network of smog filtering towers throughout the entire city. India’s capital has become known for toxic smog levels from overcrowding and industrial waste. Znera’s proposal hopes to cleanse the smog chamber and generate smog free air.
