The residence has a daylit cafe that occupies the west-facing part of the ground floor, while the second and third floors house a bedroom, living room and a small kitchen. The south side facing a neighboring building, features a clerestory which continues to the west, creating a flowing curtain wall . The wall features a system of aluminium louvers designed using PLDS (Parametric Louver Design System) based on an algorithm that calculates optimal position, spacing and orientation of each louver. Related: Students design and build a gorgeous LEED Platinum-seeking forum in Kansas Thanks to the presence of the louver system, the interior is bathed in soft natural light that emphasizes the verticality of the space. The rhythmic pattern created through the interplay of light and shadows references the rhythm of music. + AND Via Archdaily Photos by Kyungsub Shin

Comments Off on Buckminster Fuller’s low-cost Fly’s Eye Dome recreated as a 3D parametric model in Miami

Buckminster Fuller ‘s patented prototype for low-cost portable dome housing, designed in 1965, has just been reproduced and installed in the Miami Design District for this year’s Design Miami . A 3d parametric model of the Fly’s Eye Dome was placed atop a pool of water in front of Sou Fujimoto’s Palm Court shopping center in Miami and features contemporary technology that makes it water resistant and passively ventilated.

Foster + Partners Unveil New Steel Pyramid Passive Art Museum in Datong, China

Comments Off on Foster + Partners Unveil New Steel Pyramid Passive Art Museum in Datong, China

Foster + Partners just announced that they have broken ground on a new art museum in Datong’s New City, in China. The distinctive 32,000 sq m museum will be largely submerged into the ground, with the four large interconnected steel pyramids that form its roof appearing to erupt through the surface of the surrounding plaza. The dramatic, unusual structure also assists with the museum’s passive energy savings, as skylights placed within the north and north-west facing pyramids allow for maximum natural light while minimizing the impact of solar heat.
