Surrealist Architecture Designs by Victor Enrich

0
0

Architectural designer Victor Enrich created these intriguing works of art through a combination of photography and 3D digital rendering.

“A combination of photography and 3D architectural visualization is used. Once the object is chosen, it is shot from a point easy to recognize by users, not pretending to achieve the greatest picture ever, but instead, a picture that anybody could do. The shot is the basis to produce a replica of the building by using very detailed photogrammetric techniques that end with the creation of a three-dimensional model that fits almost perfectly into the picture.”

A company in Seoul, South Korea, is moving forward with construction of the Tower Infinity, the first building in history capable of cloaking itself.  The lair office tower works its magic through a series of LED projectors and cameras all simultaneously depicting whatever view the tower is blocking, which is another way of saying it’s going to look like a giant block of TV screens in the middle of the city. Designed by U.S.-based GDS Architects, the glass-encased Tower Infinity will top out at 450 meters

Interactive Cloud Made of 6,000 Light Bulbs

cloud-1

CLOUD began as a large-scale interactive sculpture created from 6,000 light bulbs by Canadian artists Caitlind r.c. Brown & Wayne Garrett. The piece utilizes everyday domestic light bulbs and pull strings, re-imagining their potential to catalyze collaborative moments and create an experiential environment. As part of the process of building the sculpture, the artists collected burnt out incandescent light bulbs from the surrounding community, forging an informal relationship with non-artists, reducing costs, and asking audiences to reconsider household items in an alternative context. During exhibition, viewers interact with CLOUD, working as a collective to turn the entire sculpture on and off.

Weather-friendly Sharifi-Ha house with semi-mobile rooms

0

SharifiHouse-2

Based in Tehran, the Sharifi-ha House by architectural firm Nextoffice is a beautiful space-saving home that comes with a set of assembly instructions. In summertime, Sharifi-ha House offers an open /transparent /perforated volume with wide, large terraces. In contrast, during Tehran’s cold, snowy winters the volume closes down, offering minimal openings and a total absence of those wide summer terraces. The three-storey house is based on a fixed main volume of the structure with movable areas present on each floor that can be rotated by a simple push of a button and lifting a stair to secure the room in place.
