What is Your Image of Architecture in The Future ?

What kind of architectural design for the future?

Urban development is increasingly so massive. Our world makes the architects start to think when they are going to creating buildings that overcome with the limitations of space, energy resources, limited food and clean water,and also few place which provide comfortable rest and recreation. There are nine progessive building design about the future of architecture, but I want to give the information just four designs of them, because im afraid when I spend a lot of space to explain all information more deeply. It is so hard to get a lot of information, because in many sources, they just give general information of that.

Related to eco-efficient and eco-effectiveness, An architect, Vincent Vallebaut has made a great design for our sustainability.

  1. Dragonfly Vertical Farm for Future New York

Vicent designer Vallebaut create extraordinary designs to synergize the resources of food, shelter, and energy sources in the future. Dragonfly (dragonfly) is the concept of urban agriculture and dragonfly wing design to provide a source of local fresh food in an urban environment. The facilities are research labs, housing, and community areas and its located and separated between orchards, farms, and production rooms. Plant and animal farming is used to maintain soil and nutrient levels, and also the important one is reusing of biowaste. Dragonfly is made from steel as the main material.

Solar energy can be accepted from the space of that building. In the summer, it makes cool situation around the building.

The function of exterior is absorping the rain water and treated organically for farm use and chemical submission distribution.  This farm, is very necessary to gives good impact on this location.

This farm can minimize  the problems of food mileage and shortage, and reconnect consumers with producers.

Urban farming is a best plantation for urban developing.

There are 132 floors and 600 vertical meters, and Dragonfly can accommodate 28 different agricultural fields for the production of fruit, vegetables, grains, meat and dairy. The combination of solar energy makes 100%efficiency.

2. Sky-Terra skyscrapers create green urban space in the sky

Designed by San Francisco-based designer Joanna Borek-Clement, the Sky-Terra skyscrapers is a neuron of networking towers. The function of this building is for urban desigm

This structure includes city, apartment, park, and recreational space but it is still consider to the green living.

The ‘Sky-Terra skyscrapers’ was designed by Tokyo because they have won the general competition.

The high of tower is 1600ft, spreading green areas to get time for relaxing and outdoor activity.

Another sustainable element is the transportation system of interconnected foot paths and 4-foot wide streets used for bikes or small electric cars. An elevator used for interconnection between floors.

They find a problem when building this project. The problem is lack of sun, that can be let to the street because of a lot of holes and green spaces.

Then there is the wind and weather factor when you’re up top. But the Sky-Terra buildings were designed for already-clogged cities like Tokyo, and these cities, some green space, direct sunlight, and fresh air are better.

The Sky-Terra towers are indeed a nice concept for urban areas, but don’t you think it will make life really boring for those on the ground level?

3. My Dream, Our Vision by Design Act

 Design Act designed this entry into the World Expo 2010 Singapore Pavilion competition called ‘My Dream, Our Vision’.

Kay Ngee Tan Architects and partners were designed this concept.

The pavilion is made of an illuminated digital cloud hovering over an ever-changing green pasture. They combine two situations between dark and light by giving audio feeds, and catapults for the bright

it is made of 3866 transparant cubes with different size . It gives good imagination that dreams can be reality in our life.

About the proposed Singapore Pavilion

For singapore, basically its about transformation that dream can be a reality.

Here, the emphasis is on human interactions and connections as the city’s driving force, and giving them sustainable life by combining all elements but in high technology.  Its designed likes cloud on the sky  with various dream-like qualities.

It has three levels: a sub-level (basement), a ground-level Plaza, and a mezzanine level inside the Pavilions cloud-crown.

It will contain 8 separate chambers of experience,tell the singapore history: The Tunnel – in a journey through the city’s hidden side  The Dream Maker – collective dream-making Transition through Cloud – and through a sequence of collected dreams

Dream Register – multi-media/sensory interpretation of Singaporean’s dreams

Wishing Tunnel – visitors share their dreams with the world Dream-harvester

Space Warper – disorientates to transit between dream and reality

Green Pasture – the green pasture

4. NO Man’s Land : design to scuffle water woes in Dead Sea

Water is the most contentious resources in world.

Thats why we need an architect to answer this question, , how can architects engage in these complex dynamics and decision-making processes?

EcoFactor: No Man’s Land is truly revolutionary. The function of this planned building is to give more drinking water to residents in Dead Sea region. Its launced by New York, based on Phu Hoang company.

No man’s land generate a variety of building technology and will extract water molecules from the air to be desalinated, ending the extinction of fresh water near the Dead Sea. The part of this structure are Salinity gradient solar ponds, water purification tanks, and water filtering processes. The design also provides for tourist and solar energy conservation too.

This is the system on water distribution from roofscape>groundscape> and the extration of water molecules,

Desalinating water in the saltiest water is necessary, so people who live at there can consume mineral water. I personally think that an architectural structure with so much potential should definitely become a reality in the coming years

    awesome at it may be, but a design will always be a design until it is implemented in real life. will this sort of design be able to be built in jakarta? i hope so, cause it can really change the skyline of jakarta into a more modern and futuristic city.
