Comments Off on Trio of LEED Platinum-targeted glass skyscrapers revealed for Tel Aviv

Israel’s capital city of Tel Aviv will soon add extra shine to its skyline in the form of three glass skyscrapers for Landmark TLV, a mixed-use development that promises an “unparalleled work-live-play experience”. Designed by Israeli firm Yashar Architects , Landmark TLV will offer a design-forward and experiential office environment along with new residences, high-end retail, and public space in the heart of the city’s Central Business district. Filled with natural light and greenery, the trio of towers will feature an energy-saving climate system and is expected to attain LEED Platinum certification. Located next to the Sarona Complex, Landmark TLV will comprise nearly 1.8 million square feet of new offices, commercial space, and residential. An internal atrium will connect two of the 45-floor skyscrapers and offer panoramic views of the Tel Aviv skyline and Mediterranean Sea , while opening up the building to natural light and ventilation. Internal bridges connecting the two buildings will also be built on every tenth floor.

Comments Off on Morpholios new Smart Fill AR feature makes calculating design areas a snap

Many digitally savvy architects can attest to the incredible usefulness of Morpholio’s award-winning Trace —an AR sketch app that just got even better. The team just launched today their newest augmented reality feature, “Smart Fill,” that can instantly calculate any area of your choosing during a live sketch. From homeowners to architects, designers and design enthusiasts of all kinds will find use for the feature—not to mention that it’s beautiful to boot. Available on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, Morpholio Trace is designed primarily with architects in mind but its versatility makes it a useful feature for designers of all types. With the addition of Smart Fill, designers can focus more on conceptualizing and expressing an idea instead of crunching numbers. “The new feature is a fill tool that not only calculates the area of the fill, it actually changes as the sketch evolves,” says Anna Kenoff, Morpholio Co-Founder. “Slice a room in half and watch it reduce or, erase a wall and watch it expand.” Related: INTERVIEW: We Talk to the Creators of Morpholio and Trace – Two Mobile Apps Ready to Shake Up the Design World Here’s how it works: after starting a sketch—whether from scratch or a trace drawing over an image—you set the scale and then select the target(s) for area calculation. The Smart Fill feature will instantly generate the calculation based on the scale provided, as well as an “Areas Chart,” which can be exported to Excel and its equivalents. The tool can also fill the selected region with your choice of colors and patterns, making it a quick and beautiful way to estimate the materials or budget needed for a project. You can download Morpholio Trace and TracePro, available for iOS only, in the App Store . + Morpholio Trace Images via Morpholio
