  1. Boa tarde! Aposto que este tópico é repetido, peço desculpa por isso já, MAS, qual é a vossa opinião, a nível de desenho/modelação/rapidez de execução, qual preferem? Archicad ou revit? Trabalho com o autocad, mas, quando o tempo aperta, estou mais do que disposta a troca-lo por algo mais rápido. Portanto, opiniões?

  2. Na tua ânsia de corrigir uma pessoa, até te esqueceste de letras… há alguma coisa que nos queiras dizer? o curso ta a ser complicado e o único joy que consegues ter é corrigir semântica em fóruns? e o facto que utilizares muitos pontos de exclamação não te da mais razao. um é suficiente. ou viste muitas vezes o pessoal acabar frases com "!!!!OMG!!!!!!!oneoneleven!!!" ? E sim, agora voltemos ao tópico de discussão!

  3. A importância que a fotografia tem na arquitectura, num filme/documentário.


    Narrated by Dustin Hoffman, VISUAL ACOUSTICS celebrates the life and career of Julius Shulman, the world’s greatest architectural photographer, whose images brought modern architecture to the American mainstream. Shulman, who passed away this year, captured the work of nearly every modern and progressive architect since the 1930s including Frank Lloyd Wright, Richard Neutra, John Lautner and Frank Gehry. His images epitomized the singular beauty of Southern California’s modernist movement and brought its iconic structures to the attention of the general public. This unique film is both a testament to the evolution of modern architecture and a joyful portrait of the magnetic, whip-smart gentleman who chronicled it with his unforgettable images.

  4. Dear Mr. Architect:

    Please design and build me a house. I am not quite sure of what I need, so you should use your discretion. My house should have somewhere between two and forty-five bedrooms. Just make sure the plans are such that the bedrooms can be easily added or deleted. When you bring the blueprints to me, I will make the final decision of what I want. Also, bring me the cost breakdown for each configuration so that I can arbitrarily pick one.

    Keep in mind that the house I ultimately choose must cost less than the one I am currently living in. Make sure, however, that you correct all the deficiencies that exist in my current house (the floor of my kitchen vibrates when I walk across it, and the walls don’t have nearly enough insulation in them).

    As you design, also keep in mind that I want to keep yearly maintenance costs as low as possible. This should mean the incorporation of extra-cost features like aluminum, vinyl, or composite siding. (If you choose not to specify aluminum, be prepared to explain your decision in detail.)

    Please take care that modern design practices and the latest materials are used in construction of the house, as I want it to be a showplace for the most up-to-date ideas and methods. Be alerted, however, that kitchen should be designed to accommodate, among other things, my 1952 Gibson refrigerator.

    To insure that you are building the correct house for our entire family, make certain that you contact each of our children, and also our in-laws. My mother-in-law will have very strong feelings about how the house should be designed, since she visits us at least once a year. Make sure that you weigh all of these options carefully and come to the right decision. I, however, retain the right to overrule any choices that you make.

    Please don’t bother me with small details right now. Your job is to develop the overall plans for the house: get the big picture. At this time, for example, it is not appropriate to be choosing the color of the carpet.

    However, keep in mind that my wife likes blue.

    Also, do not worry at this time about acquiring the resources to build the house itself. Your first priority is to develop detailed plans and specifications. Once I approve these plans, however, I would expect the house to be under roof within 48 hours.

    While you are designing this house specifically for me, keep in mind that sooner or later I will have to sell it to someone else. It

    therefore should have appeal to a wide variety of potential buyers. Please make sure before you finalize the plans that there is a consensus of the population in my area that they like the features this house has. I advise you to run up and look at my neighbor’s house he constructed last year. We like it a great deal. It has many features that we would also like in our new home, particularly the 75-foot swimming pool. With careful engineering, I believe that you can design this into our new house without impacting the final cost.

    Please prepare a complete set of blueprints. It is not necessary at this time to do the real design, since they will be used only for construction bids. Be advised, however, that you will be held accountable for any increase of construction costs as a result of later design changes.

    You must be thrilled to be working on as an interesting project as this! To be able to use the latest techniques and materials and to be given such freedom in your designs is something that can’t happen very often. Contact me as soon as possible with your complete ideas and plans.

    PS: My wife has just told me that she disagrees with many of the instructions I’ve given you in this letter. As architect, it is your responsibility to resolve these differences. I have tried in the past and have been unable to accomplish this. If you can’t handle this responsibility, I will have to find another architect.

    PPS: Perhaps what I need is not a house at all, but a travel trailer. Please advise me as soon as possible if this is the case..

  5. péssima construção... reparem nas irregularidades da fachada.

    É por comentários destes que o fórum tem a imagem de pretensioso que lhe associada, e por associação aos arqs e estudantes que por aqui passam e não só.
    Uma opinião é válida quando fundamentada. Ora quando o joaopedrosilva chega aqui, e brande ao céus que é uma péssima construção, e alega irregularidades na fachada, ficamos todos o.O... Algo mais construtivo e que apele ao debate é que seria uma boa colaboração, como o porquê, na sua opinião desde que fundamentada, era uma opinião válida. Assim é só mesmo perder tempo.
  6. this july, lacoste will finally release its new collaboration with london-based zaha hadid architects.
    lacoste previewed the spring 2009 footwear at the frieze art fair in london. hadid started by digitizing
    the lacoste crocodile logo and then used this as a basis to explore a series of surfaces with repeated
    patterns, according to the press release.
    the shoes, rubberized structures that wrap around the leg (angle high for men and calf high for women)
    are as conceptual as hadid’s architectural creations themselves. when wrapped around the shape of a foot,
    these expand and contract to negotiate and adapt to the body ergonomically. only 850 pairs of the 5
    styles will be available.
    available colette in paris, dover street market in london and 10 corso como in milan.

    a lower-price diffusion line will hit stores in september.

  7. Hanover, Pennsylvania, USA- Emeco, the premier manufacturer of aluminum chairs, and renowned architect Frank Gehry have collaborated once again, this time in the development a one-of-a-kind large scale bench which will be presented during the Salone del Mobile in Milan, April 22 -27 2009. Named Tuyomyo (Spanish for “Yours and Mine”), this is the second time Emeco and Gehry have cooperated on a project, the first being the creation of the all-aluminum Superlight chair launched at the Salone in 2004 and recently accepted into the Museum of Modern Art’s permanent design collection. The new bench will be auctioned in May, proceeds of which will fund the Leslie Gehry Brenner Award of the Hereditary Disease Foundation (HDF).

  8. Faltava ai Jean Nouvel. Dos nomes que constam na lista destacava Gehry por saber criar um novo tipo de ambiente com a sua linguagem escultórica. Parece-me que ele oferece às pessoas espaços que elas nunca pensaram frequentar. Percebo quando o acusam de não respeitar o envolvente tanto quanto se poderia exigir... nesse campo destaca-se o nosso Siza!

    Quando a lista foi criada, Jean Nouvel ainda não tinha recebido o Pritzker! :D

    Este ano o pavilhão que se encontra exposto no Hyde Park no centro de Londres - Serpentine Gallery -, é da Atelier japonês SANAA.

    The Serpentine Gallery is delighted to announce that the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2009 will be designed by architects Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa, of the leading Japanese practice SANAA. Sejima and Nishizawa’s Pavilion will be the architects’ first built structure in the UK and the ninth commission in the Gallery’s annual series of Pavilions, the world’s first and most ambitious architectural programme of its kind. The Pavilion will open in July on the Serpentine Gallery’s lawn, where it will remain until October.
    Sejima and Nishizawa’ s pioneering buildings have created an architecture that marries aesthetic simplicity with technical complexity, defining a new architectural language, which plays with light and perception. Sought after by high-profile clients the world over, from the Louvre Museum in Lens, France, to the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York, USA, SANAA’s projects are open stages, which make visible the connection between the built structure, the users and the natural environment.

    The structure will consist of an aluminium canopy, reflecting the surrounding park.

    It will open in July and remain in place until October. This is the ninth in the gallery’s annual series of pavilions - see the previous projects on the gallery website.
    Here are some more details from the Serpentine Gallery:

    Plans revealed for Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2009 designed by Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa of SANAA
    Plans were revealed today for the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2009 designed by Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa of the leading Japanese practice SANAA. The Pavilion, which is sponsored by NetJets, opens in July on the Serpentine Gallery’s lawn where it will remain until October.
    Describing their structure the architects said: “The Pavilion is floating aluminium, drifting freely between the trees like smoke. The reflective canopy undulates across the site, expanding the park and sky. Its appearance changes according to the weather, allowing it to melt into the surroundings. It works as a field of activity with no walls, allowing views to extend uninterrupted across the park and encouraging access from all sides. It is a sheltered extension of the park where people can read, relax and enjoy lovely summer days.”
    Sejima and Nishizawa have created a stunning transparent Pavilion that resembles a reflective cloud or a floating pool of water, sitting atop a series of delicate columns. The metal roof structure varies in height, wrapping itself around the trees in the park, reaching up towards the sky and sweeping down almost to the ground in various places. Open and ephemeral in structure, its translucent and reflective materials make it sit seamlessly within the natural environment, reflecting both the park and sky around it.

  10. O the wrestler é bom no sentido de devoção que aquele homem deu ao papel, quase que conta a história dele. E é bom no sentido que e visto quase como um documentário com a técnica "câmara na mão". De resto também não achei assim "tão" espectacular.
