WHY Wally-Hermés Yacht

The living space, built on three decks is intended to meet the human needs of space, light and shade with advanced sustainable technologies. The 58 metre-long 38 metre-wide, pared-down yacht is powered by a diesel electric engine that produces solar electricity to manage the boat.

Aeolus – Acoustic Wind Pavillion

Aeolus is a new architectural space designed for the public to contemplate the UK landscape; to make audible the silent shifting patterns of the wind and to visually amplify the ever changing sky. An investigation into acoustics, wind, architecture and light, Aeolus was inspired by Luke Jerram’s research trip to Iran where he explored the mosques of Esfahan and interviewed a Qanat desert well digger about his life. The well digger spoke of the wells singing in the wind.

Aeolus is designed to resonate and sing with the wind without any electrical power or amplification.

Once completed, the temporary building will tour the windy hill tops of the UK, before being installed as permanent artwork, somewhere in the UK. Unlike the prototype (see images above) the final artwork will have a steel internal structure that can be quickly assembled and disassembled on site. The tubes will then slot into this underlying framework.

Hermitage Plaza

Foster + Partners released their first video scheme for the Hermitage Plaza in La Defence, Paris. Dripping in class futuristic skyscrapers gleam over the Parisian skyline. Imposing yet necessary they give Paris a much-needed modern feel.  The two towers will be the tallest mixed-use towers in Western Europe at a monumental 323 meters (1,060 ft). The buildings will likely be completed by 2016. Costing over €2,500,000,000 this modern wonder will have 93 floors, 534 apartments, 18 levels of offices, 201 hotel rooms along with other luxuries like cafes, restaurants, boutiques, and art galleries.

Spout

“Spout” is a concept for minimalist bathroom basin design that merges technology and style. The user simply places their hands in the bowl to activate the water with the desired temperature set via a small dial. There is also a manual override button housed in the centre of the dial that can be pushed for continuous water if you would like to fill the sink.
