Bioclimatic Architecture

N.3980

The Universal Exposition of Seville, Expo ’92 took place from April to October 1992 on La Isla de La Cartuja, Seville, Spain.

 

The theme for the Expo was “The Age of Discovery” and over 100 countries were represented.

Agbar Tower Barcelona, Spain

The Torre Agbar, or also called Torre Glòries was designed by French architect Jean Nouvel and has become a symbol of a contemporary Barcelona. This tower is located in the Poblenou neighbourhood – the new technological district of Barcelona, also known as 22@. The name of the tower – Torre Agbar comes from the name of a Spanish company dedicated to services and distribution of water – the Agbar Group. Originally the building was owned by the Agbar Group and recently it was purchased by Merlin Properties real estate group which renamed the tower to be called Torre Glòries after the name of the adjacent square.

The construction of the tower was started in 1999 and was finished in 2004. The Torre Agbar is one in a collection of high-tech architecture examples in Barcelona and therefore it is interesting to take a closer look at the building, its architecture and design, both external and internal.

The Torre Agbar is a massive bullet-shaped cylinder pointing skywards, with a glass surface in which the colours of the Mediterranean are reflected. The building has 31 office floors, 3 floors for technical facilities on the top and 4 underground floors. This tower is the third highest building in Barcelona, it stands 144 metres tall. It cost 130 million Euros to build.

The architect of Torre Agbar had done a very meticulous and hard work with his team, thinking a lot about the best location where to build the tower, the design and ways how to reduce energy consumption. For that reason during its construction the solar power and groundwater were used. The Torre Agbar can truly be called as example of bioclimatic architecture. In this building, functionality and design merge with environmentally-friendly building materials and elements that take advantage of climatic and environmental conditions to achieve a significant reduction in energy consumption and improve the quality of life of residents. In 2011, the Agbar Tower won the European Commission’s Green Building award for its energy efficiency and low CO² emissions.

One of the most characteristic elements of the building is its nocturnal illumination. The tower has more than 4,500 luminous devices that can operate independently using LED technology and enables the generation of images on the outside of the tower. The system is capable of creating 16 million colours, thanks to a sophisticated system of hardware and software. It has the ability to quickly transition between colours which can create a shocking effect. We advise you to see Torre Agbar both by day and by night! Particularly by night it can become an amazing experience!

 

Cistus salviifolius by Daniel Arrhakis (2017)

 

Cistus salviifolius, common names Sageleaf Rockrose, Salvia cistus or Gallipoli rose, is a perennial ligneous plant, low spreading evergreen shrub. of the family Cistaceae. Very erect shrub about two to three feet in height (Less than 1 m). The name salviifolius refers the wrinkled leaves similar to those of the sage. It is hardy to zone (UK) 8 and is not frost tender.

 

A Garden Variety Cistus salviifolius "Prostatus" grows up to 1-2 ft tall (30-60 cm) and spreads 6-8ft wide (180-240 cm).

 

The inflorescence holds one or more round flowers, long-stalked, arranged at the leaf axils. The five white petals have a yellow spot at the base, forming a corolla 4–6 cm in diameter. The stamens are also yellow and the anthers shed abundant yellow pollen. This plant is pollinated by insects entomophily, especially bees. The flowering period extends from April through May/June. The fruit is a pentagonal capsule, 5–7 mm long.

 

It cannot grow in the shade. It requires dry or moist soil and can tolerate drought and hot Summers. The plant can tolerate maritime exposure. From Mediterranean Macoronesian bioclimatic region, this plant prefers dry hills, scrubs and open woodlands, at an altitude of 0–1,200 metres (0–3,937 ft) above sea level. It grows very quickly after a fire.

Trump has decided that birds are not needed:

“Today, it was announced that another wrong has occurred from Trump’s executive orders.”

“The man had decided birds are not needed. He signed an order to lower the protections of the Migratory Bird Act. By doing so, he signed a death certificate for migratory birds across our country.”

“By doing this, business owners will be allowed to kill any bird that comes on their property. Geese, doves, pigeons, crows, ravens, the list is too long to post. ANY bird that is not wanted can be killed.”

“I read the announcement, wrote a letter and now I am announcing this horrible turn of events. I cannot imagine the world without birds and I will fight to save every one of them.”

“I cannot understand the intent of all of these horrible reversals, but I actually believe Trump is doing everything he can to change all of our protections and he is doing so because of the Impeachment. If he is left in office, he will destroy America. History is repeating itself and we are seeing the vindictive actions of a man that is angry that he was caught breaking the constitution. Hoax? No, he did the action and now he is punishing all of us for his being caught, because truthful people came forward and said enough is enough!”

“I believe we will be seeing lawsuits form because of this action and I ask when they are announced, please support those that represent the birds in a court action.”

“If you want to learn about the deaths of an extremely high number of assorted birds across the country, click on the link below. There is a very important video to watch showing how many birds and animals are killed by our government yearly and read of the decline in species. This is serious and something I am sure none of us were aware of these things and knowing how many birds are dead, it is heartbreaking.”

“I own the Wolfe Sanctuary. We feed approximately 200 birds daily, twice a day. We have nesting boxes, feeder trays, bird baths, waterfall, 36 trees and we have had baby doves, pigeons, wrens, Finch and a hawk born in our safe zone. I have a Raven that knows when I am around and she comes and sits on the arbor and laughs at me. Last spring, she brought her baby to show off! She lives in the big pine. She will come and chase the hawks away and she likes to play and laugh with Meeghan. This girl knows where I sit in my living room and she comes to that window and laughs. I would suffer great loss if she were gone. She knows her name and comes to me. I cannot imagine what I would do if a person would decide to kill any of them.”

“Tunisia’s Plant Diversity and Bioclimatic Zones “

“The Republic of Tunisia, located in northern Africa, faces various environmental challenges caused by anthropogenic practices such as overgrazing, deforestation, and desertification. The conversion of natural ecosystems is the major cause of plant biodiversity loss. Tunisia can be divided into three main climatic zones as follows: a northern Mediterranean climate zone, a central steppe climate zone, and a southern desert climate zone. Because of this great environmental diversity, there are distinctive vegetation and various genetic resources in Tunisia. This research was conducted to investigate plant biodiversity within the various bioclimatic zones and to characterize useful plant resources in Tunisia. We investigated native, medicinal and aromatic, desert, and soil erosion control plant species.”

The Democratic establishment is not naïve to the ways of Washington. The articles of impeachment were never meant to remove Trump from office. Had that been the case they could have filed articles that relied on emoluments violations or any number of impeachable offenses, including racism, where evidence of Trump is recorded in television broadcasts or twitter. The rich, fossil fuels industries, etc. are having too much success under Trump and the Democratic establishment is loath to threaten that. They simply view the trajectory that Trump has put our Democracy on as the natural evolution of our Democracy.

In any event, the rich and political class are forcing the masses into a feral existence and Democrats are unwilling and/or incapable of stopping them. Our Global Environment is going to get very bad and the effects of this are going to be felt VERY FAST. Both the Oceans and terrestrial areas are expressing a profound inability to continue to support life in the volumes that we have known it. Food Security is falling.

This coming year you should fully expect major stumbles in the global food system. Preparation is essential - NOW. We each need to assess our ability to provide ourselves with our own water, food, and medicine. Then shelter and security. Communities are coming together to pool their resources for survival in the face of disintegrating organized society.

Agbar Tower Barcelona, Spain

The Torre Agbar, or also called Torre Glòries was designed by French architect Jean Nouvel and has become a symbol of a contemporary Barcelona. This tower is located in the Poblenou neighbourhood – the new technological district of Barcelona, also known as 22@. The name of the tower – Torre Agbar comes from the name of a Spanish company dedicated to services and distribution of water – the Agbar Group. Originally the building was owned by the Agbar Group and recently it was purchased by Merlin Properties real estate group which renamed the tower to be called Torre Glòries after the name of the adjacent square.

The construction of the tower was started in 1999 and was finished in 2004. The Torre Agbar is one in a collection of high-tech architecture examples in Barcelona and therefore it is interesting to take a closer look at the building, its architecture and design, both external and internal.

The Torre Agbar is a massive bullet-shaped cylinder pointing skywards, with a glass surface in which the colours of the Mediterranean are reflected. The building has 31 office floors, 3 floors for technical facilities on the top and 4 underground floors. This tower is the third highest building in Barcelona, it stands 144 metres tall. It cost 130 million Euros to build.

The architect of Torre Agbar had done a very meticulous and hard work with his team, thinking a lot about the best location where to build the tower, the design and ways how to reduce energy consumption. For that reason during its construction the solar power and groundwater were used. The Torre Agbar can truly be called as example of bioclimatic architecture. In this building, functionality and design merge with environmentally-friendly building materials and elements that take advantage of climatic and environmental conditions to achieve a significant reduction in energy consumption and improve the quality of life of residents. In 2011, the Agbar Tower won the European Commission’s Green Building award for its energy efficiency and low CO² emissions.

One of the most characteristic elements of the building is its nocturnal illumination. The tower has more than 4,500 luminous devices that can operate independently using LED technology and enables the generation of images on the outside of the tower. The system is capable of creating 16 million colours, thanks to a sophisticated system of hardware and software. It has the ability to quickly transition between colours which can create a shocking effect. We advise you to see Torre Agbar both by day and by night! Particularly by night it can become an amazing experience!

For that reason during its construction the solar power and groundwater were used. The Torre Agbar can truly be called as example of bioclimatic architecture. In this building, functionality and design merge with environmentally-friendly building materials and elements that take advantage of climatic and environmental conditions to achieve a significant reduction in energy consumption and improve the quality of life of residents. In 2011, the Agbar Tower won the European Commission’s Green Building award for its energy efficiency and low CO² emissions.

One of the most characteristic elements of the building is its nocturnal illumination. The tower has more than 4,500 luminous devices that can operate independently using LED technology and enables the generation of images on the outside of the tower. The system is capable of creating 16 million colours, thanks to a sophisticated system of hardware and software. It has the ability to quickly transition between colours which can create a shocking effect. We advise you to see Torre Agbar both by day and by night! Particularly by night it can become an amazing experience!

 

Agbar Tower Barcelona, Spain

The Torre Agbar, or also called Torre Glòries was designed by French architect Jean Nouvel and has become a symbol of a contemporary Barcelona. This tower is located in the Poblenou neighbourhood – the new technological district of Barcelona, also known as 22@. The name of the tower – Torre Agbar comes from the name of a Spanish company dedicated to services and distribution of water – the Agbar Group. Originally the building was owned by the Agbar Group and recently it was purchased by Merlin Properties real estate group which renamed the tower to be called Torre Glòries after the name of the adjacent square.

The construction of the tower was started in 1999 and was finished in 2004. The Torre Agbar is one in a collection of high-tech architecture examples in Barcelona and therefore it is interesting to take a closer look at the building, its architecture and design, both external and internal.

The Torre Agbar is a massive bullet-shaped cylinder pointing skywards, with a glass surface in which the colours of the Mediterranean are reflected. The building has 31 office floors, 3 floors for technical facilities on the top and 4 underground floors. This tower is the third highest building in Barcelona, it stands 144 metres tall. It cost 130 million Euros to build.

Italy Pavilion at the Shanghai 2010 World Expo

 

To Italians, “Shanghai” evokes memories of a childhood game known in the Anglophone world as “pick-up sticks.” It also serves as inspiration for the physical, conceptual and symbolic creation of this Italian pavilion at Shanghai Expo. It looks as if six flaming sticks were dropped on a 3,600 square meter ice cube, measuring 18 meters high, dividing the building into several sections. From the inside of each compartment, visitors experience one of the many different Italian cultures, including regional cuisines, wine, opera and fashion, while gazing through transparent cement walls that provide a glimpse into another, thereby forming a symbolic Italy. From an aerial perspective, the buildings resemble the topography of traditional Italian cities and Chinese urban centers with their short alleys and non-perpendicular streets.

 

Main exhibition and content

The Italian pavilion will host a main exhibition curated by the Trieannale di Milano Foundation on the ground floor and several other thematic and cultural exhibitions and events on the first floor with the involvement of Italian regions, cities, public institutions and the private sector.

 

The main exhibition will be divided into 5 rooms. The first room explores the theme of mobility: it will be brightly lit with steel walls and floors underlining the items on display. It will feature the works of 4 modern artists, and icons of 20th century Italy including a new hybrid Ferrari 599 HY-KERS and a classic Isotta Fraschini (the most luxurious car in history).

 

Room 2 focuses on Italian craftsmanship. Inside a glass walled workshop, master craftsmen will be at work. There will be restoration experts, tailors, silversmiths, violin makers and many more. Along the walls surrounding the workshop will be an exhibition of contemporary Italian design.

 

On the ceiling of room 3 there will be a satellite view of the Italian peninsula while on the ground, items of Italian manufacture relating to the expo theme will be scattered. These will include the “MOSE” project that protects Venice from tides, solar-powered cars and hybrid motorbikes. The 4th room is a room dedicated to food. Hanging from the ceiling will be a grain field, in the middle stands a centuries old olive tree and on the walls will be an enormous display of wine and pasta. Two large still-life paintings by a renowned 17th century painter Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio , "Basket of fruit" and "Boy with a basket of fruit", will also be on display.

 

The 5th and final room is the covered ‘piazza’, the heart of the pavilion. It will be the climax of the exhibition, celebrating Italian music, fashion and architecture. The room contains elements of a classic architectural masterpiece, one of its walls will showcase fashion samples, and a scenic installation will reproduce a symphony orchestra.

 

• Architects: M. Giampaolo Imbrighi. The firm Iodice of Aversa and in particular the architects Teresa Crescenzi, Antonello De Bonis, Cosimo Dominelli, Francesco Iodice, Giuseppe Iodici and Marcello Silvestre who collaborated with Architect Imbrighi in the design of the Pavilion + Permasteelisa Group.

• Surface: 7.800 square metres / 18 metres high

• Highlights: Architectonic and bioclimatic characteristics with transparent effects. Look inside for the Italian cars (Ferrari and the classic Isotta Fraschini) !

  

Padiglione Italiano all'Esposizione Universale di Shanghai 2010 - La “Città dell’uomo”

 

Progettato dall’architetto Giampaolo Imbrighi e dai suoi Associati, il padiglione illustra i valori culturali italiani senza dimenticare quelli del paese ospite, con un omaggio alla città di Shanghai e al famoso gioco che prende il suo nome.

 

Il disegno del padiglione presenta una pianta quadrata di 3.600 mq metri per un’altezza di 18 metri ed una divisione in più corpi di dimensioni diverse ed irregolari collegati da strutture-ponte in acciaio che lasciano intravedere i ballatoi di collegamento. Il progetto soddisfa sul piano strutturale l’esigenza di essere eventualmente smontato e ricostruito in dimensione ridotta in un’altra area della città.

 

Una "Città dell'Uomo" quindi dove i concetti di qualità della vita saranno modulati attraverso l'ingegneria e l'urbanistica sostenibile, le infrastrutture ecologiche, e l'architettura, il restauro e i progetti di welfare sociale; ma anche attraverso alcune punte di eccellenza nostrane come la cura del corpo, la moda, il cibo e la cultura, simboli del Made in Italy, ma soprattutto dell'Italian style of Life.

 

Il Padiglione è pensato come una “macchina” dal particolare funzionamento bioclimatico con l’obiettivo di un significativo risparmio energetico. Gli elementi fotovoltaici integrati nei vetri delle coperture esterne garantiranno un effetto schermante dalle radiazioni, mentre il progetto illuminotecnico dell’edificio mira non soltanto a scandire gli spazi, ma anche a favorire il risparmio di energia.

 

Lo Studio Iodice di Aversa e in particolare gli architetti Teresa Crescenzi, Antonello De Bonis, Cosimo Dominelli, Francesco Iodice, Giuseppe Iodice e Marcello Silvestre hanno collaborato con l'architetto Imbrighi al progetto.

  

上海世博会意大利馆

 

意大利馆的设计灵感来源于被意大利人称之为 “上海”的游戏,这个游戏其实就是上海小朋友玩的游戏棒. 由20个不规则、可自由组装的功能模块组合而成,代表意大利20个大区。整座展馆犹如 一座微型意大利城市,充满弄堂、庭院、小径、广场等意大利传统城市元素. 从整个外观看,意大利馆如同一个被分割的马赛克,也是可以组成多样的图案, 体现了不同地域多元文化、和谐共处的关系。

 

意大利馆不仅在设计上新颖别致,展馆还采用了具有透光性的“透明水泥”和具有自动清洁功能的“抗菌瓷 砖”等新型材料建造。入口采用了著名建筑师Andrea Palladio为维琴查奥林匹克歌剧院入口设计的拱门造型.

 

意大利奢侈品很多,这一点意大利馆也会有所体现,比如世界顶级的最新款法拉利跑车会在意大利馆里亮相,还有一些知名的时装、意大利的名画。米兰是国际时尚之都,意大利馆也汇聚了众多奢侈品牌的时装,在为期6个月的展览之当中,意大利馆会上演PRADA、阿玛尼、范思哲这样的世界著名 品牌的时装秀。

 

除了顶级奢侈品之外,意大利还会举办多场音乐会,包括意大利的盲人音乐歌唱家安德烈•波塞利也会在这里为大家演出。另外展馆里面还会有意大利文艺复兴时期 的著名画家米开朗基罗的两幅杰作——《水果篮》和《捧果篮的男孩》,这也是它们首次亮相中国。另外,意大利馆里还会有非常好的创新的科技成果展示,7月 15日到30日意大利馆将展示一系列的意大利创新竞赛的成果,包括可以吸收空气中烟尘的油漆以及新型的食品,还有一些市场上已有产品的优化升级版本,都会 在意大利展馆里面有所展示。

 

古罗马凯旋门“搬进馆”

透过门口的玻璃墙,老远就可以看到意大利馆入口处的古罗马凯旋门。在进门的第一个区域,一款 伊索塔弗拉西尼的黑色F1老爷车尽显尊贵,涂鸦风格的红色Fiat跑车也颇为夺人眼球。而布展者特意将另一款脱卸了底壳的绿色跑车斜置,利用地面玻璃反 射,将跑车的整个底部展现给参观者。

 

墙上的交响乐队

另一个重要展区可以概括为“教堂穹顶下的华服”。参观者可以看到,佛罗伦萨著名圣母百花大教 堂的“顶部”被四根彩柱高高托起。教堂顶的旁边耸立的三件大约是两人多高的男女礼服,它们“放大”了意大利高级成衣的上等制作 工艺。红色的女装晚礼服出自Versace的设计,而黑色的那件则是Dolce&Gabbana的,黑色的男士长大衣为 Zegna品牌。而这一展区的一侧墙上则是缩小了的男女礼服。另一面 墙上垂直展开的整个交响乐队的布局,据悉也是按同比例缩小制作的。交响乐队的展示融合了意大利的小提琴制作和高级服装制作工艺。除了以上这些展示,一楼展馆内还设立了一个透明的玻璃屋,里面展示的是菲拉格慕女鞋的制作工 艺。一楼的另一个区域中还安放了一株橄榄树。这个小展区的四周是有关橄榄用途的图片展示,例如橄榄油的制作等。

 

一人多高的超炫凉鞋

你见过的最巨型的意大利皮鞋有多大?在意大利馆,虽然玻璃的建筑外形不见得有多少特点,但橱 窗里摆着一只一人多高的凉鞋,让很多游客惊讶不已。这只松糕凉鞋是金色的带式鞋面,鞋跟呈现出不同颜色叠加的条纹,很炫。另外一只大 红色的高跟皮鞋也有一人多高,不管你是多么资深的“血拼狂”,当你看到意大利馆摆得里三圈外三圈的大牌皮鞋的时候,是不是都会被时尚的欲望击倒在地?

 

史上最豪华汽车

 

“这车现在还能开啊”,意大利馆展厅内一辆产自1923年的Isotta Fraschini汽车引人注目,这辆车由Emilio Castagna设计,价值超过500万美元,目前仍然能正常行驶,被尊为历史上最奢华的座驾。

 

世博会意大利馆 镇馆之宝

 

在世博会意大利馆众多珍贵展品中,文艺复兴艺术巨匠米开朗基罗•梅里西•达•卡拉瓦乔的绘画杰作《水果篮》与《捧果篮的男孩》无疑是镇馆之宝。米开朗基罗与达芬奇、拉斐尔并称“文艺复兴三杰”。此次展出的《水果篮》和《捧果篮的男孩》是他的早期作品,创作于1596年之前的《水果篮》 更被认为是世界上第一幅静物油画,艺术价值难以估量。这两幅画作展示出的强调明暗及写实特色的画法,被称为“卡拉瓦乔样式”,为那不勒斯、西班牙、荷兰等地的艺术发展带来深远的影响。这是米开朗基罗的作品首次在中国展出,而在此之前,这两幅作品还从未出过意大利国门。

In 1982, the government of Ethiopia launched a massive reforestation project with the assistance of UNDP. The programme was specifically designed to study the adaptability of various tree species to the country's diverse bioclimatic zones and eventually led to a better integration of agriculture and forestry.

Những phát minh hữu ích cho nhà Việt có thể bạn chưa biết

Cuộc sống là không ngừng tiến về phía trước và cùng với đó là những ý tưởng táo bạo không ngừng xuất hiện, giúp sinh hoạt của con người có những bước đột phá đáng kể. Nhờ đó, môi trường sống trở nên tiện nghi hơn, hoàn hảo hơn và có thêm nhiều trải nghiệm đa dạng, mới mẻ cho đời sống thường nhật của mỗi người.Có những phát minh hữu ích cho nhà Việt có thể bạn chưa biết.Và sau đây sẽ là những phát minh chắc chắn khiến bạn vô cùng bất ngờ khi được lấy nguồn cảm hứng từ đời sống chung quanh.Hãy tham khảo để áp dụng ngay vào chính ngôi nhà thân yêu của chính mình nhé!

 

Kiến trúc Bioclimatic

 

Nếu trước đây, việc sở hữu máy lạnh hoặc máy quạt được coi là điều thiết yếu trong thiết kế nhà cửa thì giờ đây, sẽ ra sao nếu căn nhà của bạn hoàn toàn không cần điều hoà nhiệt độ? Là một khái niệm còn khá mới mẻ ở Việt Nam, tuy nhiên, ý tưởng này hoàn toàn có thể trở thành hiện thực bằng cách lợi dụng địa thế và thảm thực vật cũng như là khí hậu tại địa phương. Xu hướng thân thiện với môi trường đang có sức lan toả vô cùng lớn, và dĩ nhiên là địa hạt kiến trúc nhà ở không là ngoại lệ!

 

Kiến trúc Bioclimatic – phát minh mới cho nhà việt

 

Kiến trúc sinh thái

 

Chỉ mới xuất hiện vào khoảng 10 năm trở lại đây, thế nhưng xu hướng kiến trúc gắn liền với tự nhiên, sử dụng các vật liệu tốt cho hệ sinh thái mà dẫn đầu là các kiến trúc sư như Võ Trọng Nghĩa, Hoàng Phúc Hào… đang ngày càng trở nên phổ biến hơn bao giờ hết. Xu hướng này không những mang lại nét thẩm mĩ riêng cho căn nhà mà còn có những lợi ích kinh tế – môi trường vô cùng đắt giá.

 

Kiên trúc sinh thái – Phát minh mới cho nhà việt

 

Chỉ mới đây thôi, Giải kiến trúc sư nổi bật châu Á SIA-GETZ vừa xướng tên một người Việt Nam. KTS Hoàng Thúc Hào đã thành công trong việc đưa nhà xã hội, nhà cộng đồng lên một tầm cao mới. Theo đó, triết lý “kiến trúc hạnh phúc’ cũng đến gần hơn với cuộc sống thực tiễn và sẽ sớm trở thành một luồng gió mới cho nhà ở đơn lẻ chứ không chỉ dừng lại tại nhà cộng đồng.

 

Hệ thống giải trí đẳng cấp cao

 

Nghệ nhân Sơn Loa đã đem đến một ý tưởng tiết kiệm không gian mà vẫn đẳng cấp, có thể làm hài lòng những người khó tính nhất. Tích hợp các chức năng nghe – nhìn từ xem phim, nghe nhạc HD cho đến dàn karaoke, hệ thống giải trí High Class chắc chắn sẽ là điểm nhấn cho không gian sống của bạn, đem đến những giây phút giải trí tuyệt hảo.

 

Nhà vệ sinh cho vùng cao

 

KTS Đoàn Thanh Hà đã lên ý tưởng kiến tạo nên những nhà vệ sinh dành cho trẻ em nghèo tại vùng cao, hiện thực hoá giấc mơ “kiến trúc cho người nghèo” của không chỉ riêng anh mà còn của rất nhiều người. Điều này gợi nhắc cho chúng ta nhớ rằng, kể cả những không gian ít được quan tâm về tính thẩm mĩ như nhà vệ sinh cũng có thể trở nên vô cùng đẹp mắt mà không cần tốn kém.

 

Tấm DURAWOOD và DURAFLEX

 

Những tấm cứng DURAflex và tấm gỗ DURAwood của một công ty tại Việt Nam đã trở thành sự lựa chọn cho vật liệu xanh với độ bền và các tính năng như chống cháy lan, chịu nước tốt, thích hợp cho cả trang trí nội – ngoại thất. Không những thế, với vẻ ngoại bắt mắt và thành phần không chứa chất gây ung thư Amilăng, đây là một sản phẩm kiến trúc mà bạn không thể

 

Tường thạch cao chống ẩm và cách âm

 

Khác với tường truyền thống, những bức tường thạch cao thế hệ mới này đảm bảo chống ẩm vượt trội, tiện nghĩ âm thanh, chống cháy, lại an toàn và nhất là vẫn rất thẩm mĩ.

 

Khối bê tông trọng lượng nhẹ

 

Nét nổi bật của những khối bê tông này là tuy chỉ chịu được tải trọng thông thường, thế nhưng, chúng có thể chống cháy và hiệu suất nhiệt là rất đáng nể. Tính bền vững, độ linh hoạt và khả năng tái chế của chất liệu này cũng là những thế mạnh đáng lưu tâm.

 

bê tông trọng lượng nhẹ

 

Vật liệu xây không nung

 

Gạch đá được cho là có mặt trong hầu hết mọi kiến trúc nhà ở không chỉ ở Việt Nam mà còn ở cả thế giới. Tuy nhiên, vật liệu xây không nung lại đem đến những lợi ích to lớn như tiết kiệm tài nguyên khoáng sản, năng lượng và giảm ô nhiễm môi trường.

 

Bột xử lý mối nối

 

Hiện nay, trên thị trường Việt Nam đã xuất hiện những thương hiệu vật liệu xây dựng được kì vọng cao với những sản phẩm tân tiến, đáp ứng được nhu cầu xây dựng trong thời đại mới. Một trong số đó là bột xử lí mối nối với công dụng liên kết mối nối, hoàn thiện trần nhà và vách ngăn thạch cao.

 

Máy quạt tự chế

 

Với khí hậu nhiệt đới của Việt Nam, chẳng có gì là lạ khi người dân thoả sức sáng tạo và cho ra đời những chiếc máy quạt tự chế rất có tính đột phá. Từ máy quạt tiêu thụ đá tới máy quạt không cần cấm điện của một cụ ông ngụ tại Thủ Đức, TP.HCM… đây đều là những sáng kiến phục vụ cho nhu cầu của con người rất đáng được ghi nhận.

Là sáng kiến của một em học sinh đã được 2 doanh nghiệp mua lại để nghiên cứu, tua bin gió trục đứng có thể được lắp đặt trên nóc nhà. Nhờ vào năng lượng gió, nó có thể tạo điện năng đủ dùng cho một số vật dụng trong nhà như nồi cơm điện, quạt và bóng đèn.

 

Bẫy điện

 

Lại là một sáng chế độc đáo đến từ các em học sinh nhưng lần này, mô hình bẫy điện lại sử dụng lưu lượng giao thông và thậm chí là bước chân của người đi bộ để sinh ra dòng điện xoay chiều dẫn vào nhà để thắp sáng bóng đèn hoặc nấu cơm.

 

Máy hút rác

 

Dù còn khá “cây nhà lá vườn’, thế nhưng, chiếc máy hút rác chế từ ống nhựa và linh kiện tái chế của một em học sinh Phú Yên chắc chắc là sự lựa chọn kinh tế và tiết kiệm hơn nhiều so với máy hút bụi. Đồng thời, nó cũng rất thích hợp để giữ vệ sinh cho các khu vực nhỏ như quầy bếp, kệ sách v.v…

 

Thùng rác xanh

 

Thùng rác thông minh chạy bằng năng lượng mặt trời của một bạn sinh viên Hà Nội hay những chiếc thùng rác đặt tại phố đi bộ Nguyễn Huệ có chức năng phân loại rác, lọc nước trồng cây và phản quang trong bóng tối đều là những sáng kiến có thể nhân rộng để áp dụng tại mỗi hộ dân cư.

From their web site: Woodland Park Zoo, in Seattle , Washington, encompasses 92 acres and features more than 1,090 individual

animals representing nearly 300 species. The grounds are divided into what are known as bioclimatic zones, the unique habitats around the world, from tropical rain forests

to the frigid climes of the Far North.

The zoo manages the largest live animal collection in Washington state, withapproximately 1,098 specimens representing 300 species plus 64 groups

of invertebrates, one group of fish and one group of Partula snails. The zoo provides a home for 35 endangered and five threatened animal species.

The zoo’s botanical collection includes 7,000 trees and

more than 50,000 shrubs and herbs representing more than 1,000 species.

The most modern building in the city – coming from Foster & Partners' project and built with the most innovative criteria of environmental sustainability, energy savings, solar design and bioclimatic strategies - has opened its doors.

“With the creation of the Einaudi Campus - said the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Turin, Sergio Roda - the University makes a concrete contribution to the 'Turin University City' project, and does so with a work destined to become one of the symbols of the city for its architectural profile and town planning impact. At a time of severe economic crisis - he continues - an investment of this magnitude, about 135 million euro, also represents a strong signal to counter the negative thoughts on the City's potential to recover from the current economic situation.”

La Torre Intesa Sanpaolo.

Con 38 piani e 167.25m di altezza è il secondo edificio più alto di Torino. Progettato da Renzo Piano è un edificio moderno e bioclimatico, con la facciata rivolta a sud interamente ricoperta di pannelli solari. Al suo interno, dopo gli uffici bancari, si trova il ristorante più alto d'Italia, ed infine un giardino botanico da cui si può ammirare l'intera città di Torino, dal fiume Po alle Alpi.

 

The Tower Intesa Sanpaolo.

With 38 floors and 167.25 meters, the tower is the second tallest building in the city of Turin. It was designed by Renzo Piano as a modern and bioclimatic building. The Southern facade is entirely filled with solar panels. Amongst the bank offices, at the 35th floor there is Italy's highest restaurant. The last floor hosts a botanical garden from which you can admire the whole city of Turin from the Po river to the Alps.

Extension of the Lisbon Oceanarium | Architecture by Pedro Campos Costa

 

"The formal solution of the building’s façade is a response to bioclimatic issues, with opened and closed elements allowing for passive ventilation and solar shading."

 

Extract from camposcosta.com/en/lisbon-aquarium/

The autumn sun casts many a shadow through the disused and abandoned bioclimatic sphere at the Expo 92 site in Seville.

 

Expo 92 took place from April to October 1992 on La Isla de La Cartuja, Seville, Spain. The site is partly derelict and ruined, and partly redeveloped into a Science and Technology Park. The combination of both, along with some weird music from the nearby Isla Mágica theme park, makes a weirdly desolate scene at the weekend.

In most of the Cycladic islands, houses were painted white to reflect the harsh summer sun. So, it started for let's say "bioclimatic" or "ecological" reasons, to make houses a little more heat resistant, with the knowledge people had at the time. All Cycladic island houses were quite well insulated, although with primitive means -- walls were built with stone (enduring heat and cold very well ) while roofs (vaulted or not) were insulated too, with a combination of wood, mud, hay, and pozolanic (volcanic ash) cement. One thing to note is that walls were not painted with white paint, since white paint was fabricated and mass-produced all around the world,only after 1905 - 1915. Instead, asbestos was used to produce an almost white color. It was also used as a cheap material for many other purposes, like painting tree trunks to kill pests, making the edges of pavements more visible, ornamenting small roads, etc. This was NOT the case in Santorini but in most other Cycladic islands.

  

Victoria -

 

The zoo is set among flower gardens and picnic areas. Many of the animals are now organised in bioclimatic zones: African rainforest featuring gorillas, mandrills, pigmy hippos and parrots; Asian Rainforest with tigers and otters; and the Australian bush with koala, kangaroos, emu, echidnas and endangered hairy nose wombats. Popular exhibits also include the Butterfly House, the great flight aviary and the Trail of the Elephants. Melbourne Zoo most recently completed construction and opened their carnivores trail in early 2018.

Urban Madeira Island -

 

Although the Atlantic laurisilva is more abundant in the Macaronesian archipelagos, where the weather has fluctuated little since the Tertiary, there are small representations and some species contribution to the oceanic and Mediterranean ecoregions of Europe, Asia minor and west and north of Africa, where microclimates in the coastal mountain ranges form inland "islands" favorable to the persistence of laurel forests. In some cases these were genuine islands in the Tertiary, and in some cases simply areas that remained ice-free. When the Strait of Gibraltar reclosed, the species repopulated toward the Iberian Peninsula to the north and were distributed along with other African species, but the seasonally drier and colder climate, prevented them reaching their previous extent. In Atlantic Europe, subtropical vegetation is interspersed with taxa from Europe and North African in bioclimatic enclaves such as Monchique, Sintra, and the coastal mountains from Cadiz to Algeciras.

"The Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie is the biggest science museum in Europe. Located in Parc de la Villette in Paris, France, it is one of the three dozen Cultural Centers of Science, Technology and Industry (CCSTI), promoting science and science culture.

 

About five million people visit the Cité each year. Attractions include a planetarium, a submarine (the Argonaute), an IMAX theatre (La Géode) and special areas for children and teenagers.

 

The Cité is classified as a public establishment of an industrial and commercial character, an establishment specialising in the fostering of scientific and technical culture. Created on the initiative of President Giscard d'Estaing, the goal of the Cité is to spread scientific and technical knowledge among the public, particularly for youth, and to promote public interest in science, research and industry.

 

The most notable features of the "bioclimatic facade" facing the park are Les Serres – three greenhouse spaces each 32 metres high, 32 metres wide and 8 metres deep. The facades of Les Serres were the first structural glass walls to be constructed without framing or supporting fins." [from Wikipedia]

is a post-modern high-rise commercial and residential building on Beach Road in Kallang, Singapore. The Concourse is located in Singapore's "Golden Mile", which refers to the strip of land between Nicoll Highway and Beach Road. It was planned by the Singapore Government as a high-rise spine fronting Kallang Basin. The area used to be occupied by squatters and small marine industries

The Concourse is a mixed-use development, comprising a 41-story office tower, a three-level retail podium and nine storeys of serviced apartments. The three distinct components, with their different usage, have separate entrances. These overlook the traditional low-rise shophouses and office blocks in the Beach Road area.

  

Paul Rudolph designed The Concourse as a "Tropical Skyscraper". His use of solar shading, wide overhangs, and communal gardens and external balconies has some similarities with the ideas advanced by Ken Yeang for the bioclimatic skyscraper. The correlation between form and function arises out of Rudolph's grounding in modern architecture, for he was taught by Walter Gropius at Harvard University.

WPAT, Patterson was originally an AM station Owned by Wright Broadcasting Company’s Howard Haman.

The history of this frequency can be traced back to July 18, 1939, when Edwin H. Armstrong’s station W 2 XMN began regular broadcasting on a frequency of 42.8 MHz. Armstrong, the father of FM radio, had actually begun testing the station on April 10, 1938, and had demonstrated FM transmission as early as 1934. The station, which also became known as W 31 NY, moved to 43.1 MHz in 1941. W2XMN moved to the new FM band in 1946, first at 92.1 MHz, and then in 1948, to 93.1, where it became known as KE2XCC. It went off the air on March 6, 1954, after Armstrong’s death. WPAT began broadcasting on this frequency in March 1957 with an Easy Listening format until the stations sale to Spanish Broadcasting in January 1996.

Lee Harris Pomeroy: 1970-1972: son of Selwyn Pomeroy for whom I hung drapes in Brooklyn. Lee Harris Pomeroy, FAIA

Is president of the firm he founded in 1964 in New York City? He has guided the firm's growth, building a reputation for design excellence over the past 36 years. Lee’s work has led to numerous architectural awards and to a number of significant commissions with major commercial clients, including Swiss Bank Corporation, Saks Fifth Avenue, HBO, and The Trump Organization. He also taught at City College under the dean Bernard Spring. The emphasis then was ON the social aspects of Architecture. Lee introduced me to one of his students: Phil Winters and we became very good friends. Lee resided in a town house he designed and renovated with his wife and children Hi wife played the viola.

In the public sector, he has designed libraries, educational and institutional buildings and large transportation projects that have been recognized for high design standards and improving quality of life in their communities Offices first on East 66 Street; then Upper floor of former maids quarters of the Plaza Hotel.

One of the projects that came to the office was the design of the Congress Nursing home in Brooklyn Heights. It was special because I got to know its owner Eugene Hollander and really think about the last place a person would life before they died. What they would see and know. I concluded that it was there widow and the view of the garden. So I recommend that he spend his money on landscaping the gardens and making removing and replacing all the buildings windows. This was 1971 and I was 34 years old. Another, and more famous client was the then owner of the Dallas cowboy, and rich Texan , Clint William Murchison for whom I designed the “Dallas Cowboy Restaurant on East 44 street between Vanderbilt and Park at the base of a , then brand new office building.

Clinton Williams Murchison, Sr (1895-1969) was an oil and gas developer financier, son of John Weldon and Clara (Williams) Murchison, and born in Tyler on April 11, 1895. He moved into exploration and development, and despite the fluctuations in the price of oil, he sold his holdings in 1925 for $5 million and moved his base of operations to San Antonio. He speculated in South Texas and in 1928 reestablished himself in Dallas

Another client of Lee’s was, now convicted criminal, spending time in jail, David Paul. David hated me and expressed his feelings openly. The below story explains the situation. The below article was written in 2000 and by now David should be out of prison.

“Former CenTrust Bank chief asks to be released from prison with 11 years left” By Catherine Wilson of the Associated Press

“MIAMI -- The federal government spent a lot of time and money putting former highflying banker David Paul behind bars and wants to keep him there until he completes one of the longest sentences imposed on 1980s savings-and-loan felons.

The former CenTrust Bank chief has asked his trial judge to let him go based on a U.S. Supreme Court decision, but a prosecutor responded Tuesday that the request to free Paul from the rest of his 11-year sentence should be rejected.

The goodwill issue was raised and rejected on Paul's original unsuccessful appeal, and the subsequent Supreme Court decision doesn't apply in his criminal case, Assistant U.S. Attorney Harriet Galvin said in trying to head off Paul's early release. He is due to serve another three years.

CenTrust, once the largest S&L in the Southeast, was seized in 1990 after its goodwill write-off to produce the fourth-largest banking collapse in U.S. history.

Paul, known for his expensive keepings and lifestyle, was convicted in 1994 of running a sham bond deal and a junk-bond fraud and using millions in CenTrust money to dress up his palatial waterfront estate.

Paul claims that the trial judge's calculation of a $61 million loss from his crimes would have been lower if goodwill were considered. Dollar losses drive prison terms in federal fraud cases.

"Looking fit and trim," Paul was recently transferred to Miami from a South Carolina prison, Weintraub said. Heart problems that required surgery during his imprisonment are still being treated, but Weintraub said, "His health is good now."

Paul collected $66,000 a week in salary and dividends while entertaining politicians and celebrities such as Elizabeth Taylor aboard his yacht. He once flew in a team of European chefs led by Paul Bocuse for a gourmet banquet at his home. He surrounded himself with Old Masters artwork and other trappings of ostentatious wealth.” It was Paul’s intensive dislike for me based ON his jealous relationship he wished for him and Lee that eventually caused Lee to ask me to resign.

Another of our projects was the Neighborhood Plan in Harlem for the Manhattan borough President’s office for Livingston Bryant and Mildred Brown.

 

Lee Harris Pomeroy (FAIA) is president of the firm he founded in 1964 in New York City. He personifies the New York liberal.

  

LME: Full Time: 1970-1973

 

Pratt Institute: 1969-1973: Part-time

One of the faculty members John Lobell and his wife M’me epitomized the era by being known for there being naked at parties and love-ins. The times were filled with a wave of rebellion, sit-ins, love–ins, happenings, and student strikes and heavy duty dope. Many of my students came to class drugged and confused. Young girls offered them selves. Several of my colleagues, especially one, Dean, we stood in awe of all the assemblies of students not knowing what to do. We were not prepared for this. Several of my colleagues did very well in this environment especially Gamal ElZogby. I my self opted the whole thing by creating LME, doing Earth Day and teaching in the New Open School. It would have lasted longer but as University of Houston, Pratt could not invite me to teach Full Time.

Many years ago Sydney Shalov coerced me into taking over the teaching of two classes to UN Master exchange students on the premise that the classes assigned teacher, Victor Olgay had died and I needed to fill in. I did, and it was a disaster. He had selected me because I had spent 15 months designing buildings as an architect in Puerto Rico. I muddled my way through and did try to learn the material. The technical class was very difficult but the other went quite nicely. The two classes were Climatology and Bioclimatic Design created by Victor Olgay. The student’s rebelled but several wonderful students helped me save the day and things finally went smoothly. One of the students was Ahmed Zahid who I later discovered in KFU in KSA. Of course we were good friends and as he had helped me I tried to help him when both our contracts were terminated.

I recently found out that Olgay was alive and well teaching and developing his work at Princeton University. I tried with out success to contact him.

Peoples Protective: 1973: Full Time (36)

In Jackson Tennessee, it wasn’t South verses North as was politely mused, but urban verses Rural. Jacksonians exuded rural values and rural mind. They preferred the urban farm and the quiet farmer’s village. Urban density, culture, commerce was undesirable and offensive. People’s Protective’s projects were rural recreational second homes being marketed to suburban non-urban people from the Midwest and North. The building were made to look like rural Tennessee barns, shacks, and building types. They aimed that Northern people should perceive Tennessee rural. My urban mindset systematized and made it possible. It was another example of the power of commerce and its consequent urbanity.

Vikelea Library, one of the most important libraries of the Greece. It took its name from Dimitrios Vikelas, a cosmopolitan intellectual that originated from the island of Syros, who donated his library to the Municipality of Heraklion.

The library first opened in 1908 and moved in this building in 1930. Its collection was enriched by the donations of Ellie Alexiou, Georgios Anemoyannis and Maro Seferi, who donated her library as well as the one of Giorgos Seferis.

 

Apart from the 250,000 books, 300,000 newspapers, 500 magazines and about 1.650 hours of audiovisual material, Vikelea also holds another valuable treasure: seven centuries of archives left by the occupiers of Crete. This treasure includes the Venetian archives –which came from the State Archives of Venice in the microfilm format- the archives of the Ottoman period and the Cretan Revolution of 1896.

 

Renovation works was started in 2003 and they were finished in 2013. It has a bioclimatic design and the building is divided into three sections: in the basement is the children’s library; the first floor hosts the general library where people can borrow or read the books; and the second floor hosts cultural and literary events, as well as the libraries of Seferis, Vikelas and the Archives of Tzedakis and Spanakis. At the semi-basement there is a small exhibition of the archaeological findings discovered under the building, with special lighting and glass floors.
