Comments Off on MakerBot Unveils Prototype ‘Digitizer’ Desktop 3D Scanner at SXSW

MakerBot is already one of the biggest names in desktop 3D printing , and now the company plans to expand into scanning. CEO Bre Pettis announced the arrival of the Digitizer this week at the Austin’s SXSW Interactive . The scanner consists of a turntable upon which you can mount small objects that can then be scanned by lasers and be digitized into computer files. Easier than writing code from scratch, the new device could be joined with a suite of printers and filament fabricators to create a small-scale design studio in the home.

BIG Selected to Develop the Master Plan of the Smithsonian Institute Campus

Comments Off on BIG Selected to Develop the Master Plan of the Smithsonian Institute Campus

Danish architect Bjarke Ingels is known for designing modern, unconventional buildings, so it comes as a bit of a surprise to learn that Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) has been selected to redesign the historic Smithsonian campus in Washington, DC. BIG will lead a design team that will include Surface Design, Traceries and Robert Silman Associates, which will be tasked with re-imagining the world’s largest museum and research complex. BIG won’t be designing any new buildings—at least for the time being—so we don’t expect any mountain-shaped forms to spring up on the National Mall, but the question of how, exactly, BIG will rethink the historic campus is still open.

Skidmore, Owings and Merrill ‘s plan for a new sustainable Central Business District in Beijing was met with much fanfare when it was first announced, and now SOM has garnered even more attention by winning the AIA’s Regional and Urban Design Award for the project – with good reason. The CBD boasts an ambitious plan for green growth that, if successful, would result in eliminating 215,000 tons of CO2 per year – the equivalent of planting 14 million adult trees

Comments Off on (fer) Studio Unveils a Green Vision for Downtown Inglewood, California

Inglewood has seen better days, but a grand scheme by local architecture firm (fer) Studio could dramatically enliven the downtown area. Vertical gardens, green roofs , and an altered urban fabric with a splash of renewable energy thrown in make it an exciting proposal for the down-and-out California city. The grand master plan has been submitted to the city council and (fer) has entered it in the Cascadia’s Living City Competition to secure startup funds for the lush redevelopment scheme.
