3D imaging opens business window for architects  – Magazines |businessdailyafrica.com


For architects and interior designers, creating an impression that is as identical as possible to the final product is an essential element of their professions.

Most clients desire to see their buildings or interior spaces transformed into the ideal concept they had visualised. The architects are tasked with the unenviable responsibility of making this happen.

It is for this reason that the use of architectural animation and 3D modelling software in the design of buildings and interior spaces is fast gaining popularity.

Not so long ago, building plans used to be done and presented entirely on paper, consuming a lot of resources, time and labour.

However, an architectural job that could typically have taken up to three months in the past can now take two weeks.

Experts say that the increasing adoption of 3D imaging and architectural animation has resulted in more accurate representations, convenience and saves clients time and money in construction projects.

According to Waweru Njuguna, an architect and interior designer at Synergy Arc, an architectural firm in Nairobi, use of digital imaging in architecture boosts accuracy and speed in design.

“It’s now become much easier to show the client exactly what you want to build and the projected outcome using 3D models and animation,” says the architect. “In addition to this, changes and manipulation could easily be factored in as the project progresses eliminating the hassle of having to redo entire plans.”

Adds Njuguna: “If, for example, you are changing the flooring from wood to carpet, you can easily go back to your project design on the computer, make the changes and have the new layout reflect on the final design.”

This according to Njuguna, has made consultation between the design team and the clients easier and as such, proposals are developed much faster.

Una colina por casa | Vivienda | elmundo.es | Peter Gluck and Partners, Architects


ARQUITECTURA | Montañas de Adirondack, en Nueva York

  • Cuenta con una piscina, un teatro, un gimnasio y varias terrazas y patios
  • ‘Bajo tierra’ la luz natural entra a través de las ventanas y un gran tragaluz
  • En la parte superior sólo está la oficina del propietario, con ‘muros’ de cristal

¿Cuál es el fin de la arquitectura? Conforme el diseño y la construcción avanzan, son más los arquitectos que intentan desmarcarse de las clásicas ideas de urbanismo o edificación. Si hasta hace unos años lo importante era que un edificio o una vivienda llamara la atención y se hablara de ella ahora el minimalismo se impone a la ostentación.

Éste es el caso del arquitecto Peter Gluck que ha conseguido que su proyecto situado junto al lago George, en las montañas de Adirondack, en Nueva York, se camufle con el medio que lo rodea. En esta particular vivienda, de alrededor de 6.600 metros cuadrados hay espacio para vivir, para pernoctar y para disfrutar de los momentos de ocio. Porque esta atípica casa del lago cuenta, además de con un gran espacio verde exterior, de varias terrazas y patios así como una piscina.

En este proyecto, del que se ha hecho eco Architectural Record , Peter Gluck ha dividido la construcción en dos partes. Por un lado, está la oficina, en la parte superior de la construcción y, ‘bajo tierra’, la vivienda en sí y una zona para los momentos de relax que cuenta, además de con una larga piscina, con un anfiteatro, un gimnasio y una sauna. Además, la vivienda cuenta con casa de invitados y largos caminos donde perderse entre los árboles del parque de Adirondack (Nueva York).

Peter Gluck’s modern take on the Adirondack Great Camp with two landform buildings that become part of the scenery.

Some minimalist architects boast that given enough money, they can make their architecture almost disappear. Although that claim seems to go against normal expectations about what so many architects really like to do, it often tempts those faced with a large program and a sensitive site.

Unknown Fields Division Part I: Chernobyl Exclusion Zone – Architecture – Domus


An architecture report from Pripyat by Nelly Ben Hayoun

An international, multidisciplinary team of researchers visits the zones where the myths of the near future are manufactured.

The Visiting School Program at the Architectural Association under the direction of the talented and charismatic Liam Young and Kate Davies invited creative director and experience designer Nelly Ben Hayoun to join a multidisciplinary group of international research students, architects, artists, and writers on a trip to extraordinary landscape and industrial sites. Dubbed the Unknown Fields Division, they pack their Geiger counters and spacesuits to chart a course from the atomic to the cosmic, investigating the unknown fields between the exclusion zone of the Chernobyl Nuclear Reactor in the Ukraine and Gagarin’s launch pad at the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. They will skirt the retreating tide of the Aral Sea and mine the ‘black gold’ in the Caspian oilfields and caviar factories. In these shifting fields of nature and artifice they aim to re-examine preservationist and conservationist attitudes toward the natural world and document a cross-section through a haunting landscape of the ecologically fragile and the technologically obsolete. Ben Hayoun delivers these excursionary dispatches from the zones where the myths of the near future are manufactured.

World Architecture Festival – Barcelona 3-5 November 2010


WAF Barcelona - España 2010
WAF Barcelona - España 2010

Este importante evento internacional se realizará este año en España.

He contactado con los organizadores respecto a la posibilidad de registrarme como bloguero y cubrir contenidos en español (es lógico que siendo en España se publique material independiente en nuestra lengua común) sin que por ello haya problemas de derechos de autor (copyright) más aún en el caso que este Blog se inscribe dentro de las iniciativas copy-left.

No se si podré asistir, dado que estoy en paro, pero de contar con recursos o ayudas, así lo haré… si la justicia funcionara en España para esa fecha ya debería estar adscrito en alguna escuela de Arquitectura convalidando mis títulos obtenidos en el extranjero y avanzando, nuevamente, con mi Doctorado 😉
