Tour de Moron

Urmet @ 16.02.2012 10:23 | Registreerunud: 17.04.2003

Named for the mountain range in which it is located, the Tour de Moron
stands on the edge of a forested slope in French-speaking Switzerland.
Designed by Swiss architect Mario Botta, the stone-and-metal tower was
realized by local apprentice stonemasons. “The construction of this belvedere
tower,” says Botta, “was inspired by the desire to create an image that would
give visibility to the work done by several hundred apprentices in the region as part of their vocational training to
become stonecutters.” Some 700 apprentices worked on the project, which took four years to complete.

Monument to Civilization: Vertical Landfill for Metropolises

Urmet @ 08.03.2012 09:51 | Registreerunud: 17.04.2003

via inhabitat:

"In Monument to Civilization, Lin Yu-Ta proposes a dark, staggering architectural solution to the massive problem of urban waste. With space for toxin-emitting landfill in decline, Lin suggests that we might instead construct epic towers from that waste, and from that decomposing trash generate power for the world’s largest cities...When examining the notion of the skyscraper as urban spectacle, Lin Yu-Ta noticed that we often “build towers for towers’ sake.” The Taiwanese designer asks us to instead consider that our own wastage, often evident in urban development, is itself a spectacle worthy of note. If this hasn’t already left in a state of apocalyptic depression, Lin points out that “a large portion of our garbage would last for hundreds or even thousands of years… making it the greatest material for a monument.”..."

Torre David

Promm @ 20.12.2013 16:57 | Registreerunud: 01.04.2003

Torre David, a 45-story office tower in Caracas designed by the distinguished Venezuelan architect Enrique Gómez, was almost complete when it was abandoned following the death of its developer, David Brillembourg, in 1993 and the collapse of the Venezuelan economy in 1994. Today, it is the improvised home of a community of more than 750 families, living in an extra-legal and tenuous occupation that some have called a vertical slum.


Lühidokumentaal on sellest ka hiljuti tehtud.

The Ribbon Chapel by Hiroshi Nakamura takes its name from the pair of timber-clad staircases that wind around the exterior of the glazed wedding chapel.

The 15.4-metre-tall structure is set on a grassy hillside in the grounds of the hotel Bella Vista Sakaigahama to take in views of the Seto Inland Sea, which borders the city of Onomichi in Hiroshima Prefecture.

Falliline arhitektuur

Läbi Wikipedia jõudsime leheni mis on pühendatud fallilisele arhitektuurini, saab inspiratsiooni tornide projekteerimisel. Muidugi seost arhitektuuri ja suguliikme vahel on kohati ka raske leida.
