Replacing the traditional operation of repetitive extrusion, a heliotrope branching system actively seeks out those areas within the zoning envelope with greatest access to daylight. Forking and swelling in response to varying light conditions the atrium is thus conceived as a site-specific network that traverses intelligently and freely from one façade to another. The atrium becomes the defining element of differentiation within otherwise normative floor plates while maintaining efficient floor space ratios. http://www.evolo.us/category/news/page/181/ 1/16 " id="pdf-obj-0-7" src="pdf-obj-0-7.jpg">

Within the atrium a second order proliferation of the same system at a finer scale develops a structural meshwork. The swellings and coagulations of this topologically free structural network-within-a-network accommodate meeting rooms and bridges.

The ambition of achieving inorganic speciation is part of Supermanoeuvre’s broader research into the capacity of generative architectural methodologies to negotiate novel spatial, formal and material organizations. Whereby, the performance and character of architecture is elaborated through both the internal systemic logics of the algorithm and its motivated response to external stimuli and latent conditions.

Helices Tower conceived by Julia Koerner is a building prototype that aims to transform the modern high-rise typology for equatorial climates through the incorporation of sustainable, bioclimatic building-systems. The design demonstrates that passive ventilation strategies can be exploited for both energy efficiency and formal beauty.

The design features innovative building systems that transition from highly articulated, two-dimensional façade patterns to three-dimensional bioclimatic interior spaces.

Helices Tower consists of two primary elements: opaque monolithic cores, incorporating the ventilation system and primary structural system, and the twisting helices that span in-between to form floor slabs and interior

spaces. The cores are located on the east and west sides to shade the building from low solar angles while the helical slabs create a fluid gradient pattern on the façade and provide additional shading for the interior. Read the rest of this entry »

3/12/2014 news - eVolo | Architecture Magazine Rocinha, Brazil, is one of the world’s largest slums

Rocinha, Brazil, is one of the world’s largest slums with a population over 150,000 people. It is located in the southern part of Rio de Janeiro; a hillside the overlooks the city and the ocean. In the 1930’s the Rocinha community emerged from the division of large farm fields and in the 1940’s and 1950’s it was the epicenter of illegal settlements with lack of regulation. The result is an area with a strong community bonds but without any infrastructure or security.

One of the most interesting characteristics of the “favelas” is the non-existent boundaries between public and private space. The unorganized construction creates residual spaces that are use by the residents for all kinds of
