  • Penumbra - A Kinetic Daylighting and Shading System

    This project was designed to offer a kinetic and mechanical solution to a problem that would otherwise be nearly impossible to solve with static architectural components: providing shading across a building facade for both low evening sun and high afternoon sun conditions. Our solution was a series of vertical shading louvers, that can independently pivot to maximize solar protection, and when the sun reaches an altitude in which vertical louvers would be ineffective, completely rotate upwards to act as a horizontal shading element and light shelf. All of the mechanical components and gear ratios were fully resolved, and the result is a hand or computer-operated system that creates a beautiful undulating form across the facade.

    Inspired by the shotgun houses of the Gulf Coast, architect Zui Ng set out to create a modern version that could adapt to any lot. Calling it the Shotgun Chameleon, he built a prototype home for his family in Houston’s Fourth Ward (Freedmen’s Town). Reflecting the buildings on both sides, it is clad in wood and metal, which are slatted to allow for light and breeze to enter while simultaneously allowing for privacy from the apartments next door. The “Chameleon” in the title refers both to the home's adaptability to place as well as to moments in time. Ng designed it to divide into separate apartments to reflect his changing family. When he first moved in, he left the interior stairway open and his mother lived downstairs. Now the stairwell is closed and he, his wife and young daughter ...

Le Corbusier's Unité d'Habitation in Marseille. Visit to the Unite d'Habitation in Marseille built 1947-1952, visited July 2008. The building is conceived as a city in the sky, a 12 storey multi-use high-rise with 337 flats, and a number of shops, offices, hotel, school, club, and a roof garden that reclaims the land footprint. It is surrounded by parkland. This one is also called 'Cité Radieuse' and there are a number of repeat Unité buildings in other cities, such as Berlin, Firminy, Nantes. http://www.galinsky.com/buildings/marseille/ The block is oriented North-South. At the time, there was almost no precedent for highrise housing, all of which have been postwar. That makes this is a highly inventive project. This is the East elevation, facing Boulevard Michelet. It includes the core of stairs and lifts. The vertically louvred floor is the two stories of shops and offices. On the same level is the hotel. For most of the building, the flats are 2-storey, double ended with an east and west window. At the south end, the flats change to single aspect, with sun breaking details to reduce solar gain. It's a pity the side wall at the south end has no windows (architectural purism more important than environmental benefit of daylight) The building is on piloti (giant columns), one of Corb's guiding principles of architecture - freeing the land. In the late 40s there was a shortage of steel, so concrete (Beton brut) was used, with unskilled labour. This made the construction time very long, and now results in high repair bills. Such a building would now be built in steel with basement parking. Corb devised the Modulor, a system of dimensions based on the ideal human body, providing a series of large and small dimensions - for ceiling heights, doors and storage units. This is demonstrated in the sculptures in the east core wall. The impressively large undercroft is used only for motorcycle parking, but the growth of car ownership is such that much of the surrounding parkland is now car parking. The site huts are for the repair contractors. The North end has an escape stair for the shopping and office level. To the 21st century mind the decision to have a totally blank wall at the north end is an environmental disaster as the long corridors are totally reliant on electrical lighting day and night and the only lighting is from small electric lights over each door. Any building now with a long corridor would have a daylit end window. The concrete has suffered from acid rain decay, so major works are taking place on the building These appear to have gone on for years. Postwar concrete would not have been good enough to survive 60yrs without erosion. In fact, this is a problem with all buildings of that era using so much concrete externally. The vertical shading louvres indicate the position of the shops and offices. The Entry has a porte cochere in concrete, and there is concierge service at the ground floor - something that was missing in so many post war highrise blocks, and was one of the causes of a decline in their reputation. Up to the roof terrace... a playground with service towers as sculptures, and space for school, club etc. Many visitors come here to see the building and the roof terrace. On the day of filming, the roof is serving for a fashion shoot, with a camera team and the model changing clothes and positions. The reddish tinge of the concrete is caused by the colour of sunset. The Unité was built in the countryside in 1952, but Marseille has expanded mightily. All around are many postwar residential highrises. Some are inheritors, but many are misinterpreters of the good design ideas in the Unité.

This project was designed to offer a kinetic and mechanical solution to a problem that would otherwise be nearly impossible to solve with static architectural components: providing shading across a building facade for both low evening sun and high afternoon sun conditions. Our solution was a series of vertical shading louvers, that can independently pivot to maximize solar protection, and when the sun reaches an altitude in which vertical louvers would be ineffective, completely rotate upwards to act as a horizontal shading element and light shelf. All of the mechanical components and gear ratios were fully resolved, and the result is a hand or computer-operated system that creates a beautiful undulating form across the facade.

Governor Brown: Moving solar forward David Wortmann, Managing Director of the Berlin-Brandenburg Energy Network and DWR eco GmbH, had a very constructive meeting with Governor Brown this week to share the experience of the German renewable energy industry. Wortmann had this to say, "My impression is that Governor Brown is willing to bring solar to the next level in California. He is very interested to learn from the experiences we have had in Germany so far creating the largest solar market in the world. He understands that employing solar is not just helping us to fight climate change, but also to boost the economy and to create sustainable jobs.”

OTAY MESA, CALIFORNIA — Construction began on prototype designs for a border wall in a fenced-off area in Otay Mesa on Tuesday. Eight different designs will be constructed over the next 30-days, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported. Four of the prototypes will be concrete, while the other four will be made of various materials. All of the walls will be between 18 to 30 feet high and 30 feet long, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune. Six contractors from across the country have been chosen to build the prototypes. Bids for the prototypes ranged from $300,000 to $500,000. The construction site is about 1.5 miles east of Erico Fermi Drive. It is several miles east of the Otay Mesa Port of Entry, reported the San Diego Union-Tribune. The border wall project is underway despite lack of congressional funding. Estimates for the cost of the border wall have ranged up to $38 billion. The Department of Homeland Security is planning to pay for the prototypes with internal funds taken from other programs. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- TomoNews is your best source for real news.

APG is the U.S. Army's oldest active proving ground, established on October 20, 1917, six months after the U.S. entered World War I. Its location allowed design and testing of ordnance materiel to take place near contemporary industrial and shipping centers. The proving ground was created as a successor to the Sandy Hook Proving Ground, which was too small for some of the larger weapons being tested. At the peak of World War II, APG had billeting space for 2,348 officers and 24,189 enlisted personnel. Edgewood Arsenal Although civilian contractors produced the major fraction of conventional munitions for World War I, the United States government built federally owned plants on Aberdeen Proving Ground for the manufacture of toxic gas. These poison gas manufacturing facilities came to be known as Edgewood Arsenal. Edgewood Arsenal included plants to manufacture mustard gas, chloropicrin and phosgene, and separate facilities to fill artillery shells with these chemicals. Production began in 1918, reached 2,756 tons per month, and totaled 10,817 tons of toxic gas manufactured at Edgewood Arsenal before the November 1918 armistice. Some of this gas was shipped overseas for use in French and British artillery shells. The Edgewood area of Aberdeen Proving Ground is approximately 13,000 acres and includes Gunpowder Neck, Pooles Island, Carroll Island, and Graces Quarters. The Edgewood area was used for the development and testing of chemical agent munitions. From 1917 to the present, the Edgewood area conducted chemical research programs, manufactured chemical agents, and tested, stored, and disposed of toxic materials... From 1955 to 1975, the U.S. Army Chemical Corps conducted classified medical studies at Edgewood Arsenal, Maryland. The purpose was to evaluate the impact of low-dose chemical warfare agents on military personnel and to test protective clothing and pharmaceuticals. About 7,000 soldiers took part in these experiments that involved exposures to more than 250 different chemicals... Other parts of APG not attached to the main installation include the Churchville Test Area in Harford County, and the Carroll Island and Graces Quarters in Baltimore County, Maryland. The Churchville Test Area is a test track with hills that provide steep natural grades and tight turns to stress engines, drivetrains, and suspensions for army vehicles, including M1 Abrams tanks, Bradley Fighting Vehicles, and Humvees. The eastern half Carroll Island was used as a testing location for open air static testing of chemical weapons since the 1950s. During tests of chemical agents and other compounds at Carroll Island, Maryland, from July 1, 1964 to December 31, 1971 nearly 6-1/2 tons of chemicals were disseminated on the test area including 4,600 pounds of irritants, 655 pounds of anticholinesterase compounds such as the nerve gasses Sarin and VX, and 263 pounds of incapacitants such as LSD. Simulant agents, incendiaries, decontaminating compounds, signaling and screening smokes, mustard, and herbicides were also released as well as riot control gasses. The test sites consisted of spray grids, a wind tunnel, test grids, and small buildings... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Churchville_Test_Area The Churchville Test Area is a United States Army facility of the Aberdeen Proving Ground, located northeast of Bel Air, Maryland (in Harford county, Maryland, USA). The Churchville Test Area (39.596°N 76.253°WCoordinates: 39.596°N 76.253°W) is a hilly set of cross-country road test tracks providing a variety of steep natural grades and tight turns designed to stress engines, drivetrains and suspension systems for Army vehicles, such as the M1 Abrams tanks, M2 Bradley fighting vehicle and the Humvee...

Inspired by the shotgun houses of the Gulf Coast, architect Zui Ng set out to create a modern version that could adapt to any lot. Calling it the Shotgun Chameleon, he built a prototype home for his family in Houston’s Fourth Ward (Freedmen’s Town). Reflecting the buildings on both sides, it is clad in wood and metal, which are slatted to allow for light and breeze to enter while simultaneously allowing for privacy from the apartments next door. The “Chameleon” in the title refers both to the home's adaptability to place as well as to moments in time. Ng designed it to divide into separate apartments to reflect his changing family. When he first moved in, he left the interior stairway open and his mother lived downstairs. Now the stairwell is closed and he, his wife and young daughter live in the 750-square-foot upstairs. The downstairs is rented out as a separate flat, now accessible via an exterior door. “There’s different ways to live free. I’ve seen people, they move to the middle of nowhere and they move into a car or something to live free. That’s one way. Me and my wife, right now, we are kind of living free The rent for the bottom unit actually pays for the mortgage.” In order to keep the build affordable, Ng (ZDES Studio) and his wife created most of the interior themselves: building cabinets and furniture (some hacked from IKEA and Home Depot), staining the plywood, designing and installing steel countertops from leftover siding, and even creating wooden, sliding pocket doors. “With the digital age we lost a lot of ability that our ancestors used to have, with your hands… This house was built $180,000 less than what the contractor asked for so this is like another master degree for me. I learned to do subcontracting.” ZDES Studio: http://zdes.webs.com/s-t-u-d-i-o Original story: https://faircompanies.com/videos/chameleon-shotgun-house-blends-modernvernacular-on-a-budget/
