 What is the role of atrium in public building ?

Atrium is  the heart of public building such as hospitals, shopping centres, educational centres, office buildings etc. People gather and socialise in the atriums. The Atrium also connect to the natural green spaces and natural sunlight through roof skylight systems , which is the main aspect of architecture  (Light and ventilation). Atriums play a vital role in sustainable and green architecture.  Atriums ameliorate the indoor environment as well as the comfort levels of the buildings.

Gravity Restroom

In the midst of unprecedented chaos at Mongkok caused by Civil Unrest right next to Langham Place Shopping Center, one discovers a brand new Black & White Toilet with Futuristic Street Lamps called “Gravity Restroom” recently opened to the public. Built as part of Pegasus Entertainment’s first Flagship “Cinema City Langham Place” designed by Alexander Wong Architects, this futuristic-looking cinema has an entrance named “Rose Futura” in Ultra-Blue and Azure “Cloud Atlas Tunnels”.

State Of The Art Office Tower For New York City

 The ITC tower designed by Chapelle Corentin, 4th-year student at Paris’ Speciale School of Architecture, is an hypothetical project trying to imagine and prove in what ways is possible to design a state of the art office space dealing with nowadays needs in a challenging city such as New York City (what impact such a project can have and could have for the city, what benefits, what opportunities …etc).

  Veterans Memorial And Museum In Columbus, Ohio
Posted by: harshita - 12-24-2014, 08:33 AM - Forum: Architecture - No Replies

Veterans Memorial And Museum In Columbus, Ohio

The museum, located on the banks of the Scioto River, directly across from downtown Columbus, will open in 2016.

The Ohio Veterans Memorial and Museum is conceived as an architecture of two acts. The first is an act of landscape, where the surrounding parkland is cut, carved and lifted into the sky, creating a processional path to the sanctuary, a place of ceremony, celebration and reflection—a civic room for the city of Columbus. The second is an act of structure, where a series of concentric arches rise from the earth to hold the sanctuary above. These bands of interwoven concrete hold and protect the museum and its occupants within, creating a labyrinthine journey of exhibitions that illuminate ideas of service, duty and remembrance.

  Passive House Concept
Posted by: harshita - 12-24-2014, 08:21 AM - Forum: Architecture - No Replies

Passive House concept 

The Passive House standard requires buildings to use at least 80% less energy than a comparable conventional building.

The Passive House standard requires buildings to use at least 80% less energy than a comparable conventional building, so air tightness is a must. The structure must be completely sealed against any air infiltration, at the same time preventing conditioned air from escaping. This means Building Teams must employ multiple layers of insulation in the walls, roof, and flooring, plus continuous air barriers and reliable windows and doors. 

Once the building is completely sealed, a number of techniques can be engaged to regulate the temperature.

Passive house design strategies

- Natural Ventilation
- Ventury Effect
- Shading
- Wind Towers
- Courtyard Design
- Earth Air Tunnels
- Evaporative Cooling
- Passive Down Draught Cooling
- Roof pool
- Trombe wall

Biomimicry in  architecture

·         Structures whose outer form is inspired from bio — living structures is known as Biomimicry.  

·         The term biomimicry was popularized Jannie Banyus


[Image: biomimicry-concert-hall-1.jpg]

This project is a design proposal conceived by Philip H. Wilck during his studies at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna under the guidance of Hernan Diaz Alonso. The project for a Concert Hall at the Stadtpark in Vienna rethinks the concept of a concert hall through the architectural emsemble of different geometrical and material configurations that offer the opportunity for a multilayered and complex music experience. The system includes central positioned classical, symmetric concert hall geometry, and two areas created as sound shells related to biological shell geometries (biomimcry) such as an ear or a muscle structure. Other elements provide spaces and areas for a fully energy self-sufficient building through host interaction and active materials.

  Hanging Mezzanin
Posted by: ronit - 11-13-2014, 09:41 AM - Forum: Architecture - Replies (1)

In Hanging Mezzanin the mid-storey is supported from the top floor. The second floor is supported by columns in tension, not compression, so steel need to be used ,concrete is unsuitable.

Example of this is the Hinman Research Building, at Georgia Tech's School of Architecture (USA). Originally designed by P.M Heffernan in 1939
