چه کسی می تونه با قدرت بگه این ها به دست انسان ساخته شده اند!؟
واقعا اون ها بشرهایی مثل ما بودند؟
این عجایب عظیم در دورانی که ما اون رو دوران جاهلیت و کوتاهی قامت بشر می دونیم! چه طور خلق شدن!؟
و اگه این طور نیست آیا ما حتی به لحاظ مادی، باید برای خودمون "پیش‌رفت" قائل باشیم؟



The Colosseum, the Great Pyramid of Giza, the Great Wall of China and Machu Picchu are world-famous ancient architectural wonders, but they're hardly the only man-made structures worthy of effusive praise, enthusiastic photography and economy-stimulating tourism. These 7 historical sites, ranging from an incredibly deep well in India to the cradle of Mayan civilization – complete with the world's first highway system – are often overlooked, but represent some of the most jaw-dropping and mysterious engineering feats from ancient times to the medieval period.



Chand Baori, India

Perhaps one of the most beautiful examples of patterns in architecture, the 10th century Chand Baori well in the Indian state of Rajasthan is the world's deepest, extending 100 feet below the surface of the earth. Built as a solution to chronic water supply issues in this arid region, the well has a total of 3,500 steps in 13 levels arranged in an inverted 'V' shape and is adjacent to the Harshat Mata temple. The walls are so steep that when standing at the bottom, you sometimes can't see people who are on the steps above you.

It's difficult to imagine the construction process for such a complex stone structure with the technology available at the time. Local legend has it that ghosts built it in a single night; perhaps that accounts for its preternaturally preserved state as well.
Sacsayhuaman, Peru

How did the Incas move these massive stones? That's just one of the mysteries surrounding Sacsayhuaman, an immense fortress located on the outskirts of the city of Cusco in Peru. While the much more famous Machu Picchu is renowned for its views, Sacsayhuaman is a marvel of engineering, confounding Spanish conquerors who were so amazed by the construction, they thought it must be the work of demons.

The largest of the boulders that make up the three dry stone walls of Sacsayhuaman – all carried from a quarry located over three kilometers away – weighs an estimated 120 tons. But the seemingly superhuman feat of moving these boulders is not the most incredible aspect of the ruins: even thousands of years later, the stones of the walls fit together with such precision, you can't fit a piece of paper between them. This precision, along with the various stone shapes that fit together like a puzzle, is likely the reason that the structure has survived earthquakes that have devastated the area.
Leshan Giant Buddha, China

The largest carved stone Buddha in the world towers over 232 feet into the air, with fingers measuring 11 feet in length and 92-foot-long shoulders big enough to be basketball courts. Leshan Giant Buddha overlooks the confluence of three rivers in the Sichuan Province of China. Begun during the Tang Dynasty in the year 713, the Buddha was built at the behest of a monk called Hai Tong who hoped to supplicate the temperamental water spirits thought to be responsible for numerous boat accidents. It took thousands of workers more than 90 years to complete the project.

Seemingly cosmetic details are even more complex and meaningful than they look upon first glance. For example, the 1,021 buns in the Buddha's coiled hair are part of drainage system that continues behind the ears, in the clothing and along the limbs, protecting the statue from water-related damage.
Teotihuacan, Mexico


(images via: travel this world)

A massive urban complex laid out to celestial, geographic and geodetic alignments, the Teotihuacan archaeological site in the Basin of Mexico contains some of the largest pyramidal structures built in the pre-Columbian Americas. The city was established around 100 BCE and may have had as many as 200,000 inhabitants during its prime in 450 CE. It has been called the first true urban center in the Americas; its remains measure at least two miles across but the city was likely much larger and its influence extended as far away as Guatemala. Very little is known of the Teotihuacan people or what may have caused the city's decline, which occurred in the 8th or 9th century.

An astronomer-anthropologist named Anthony Aveni discovered that the grid of the city was based on a point of prime astronomical significance. The builders seem to have aligned the east-west axis of the city to the point on the horizon at which the sun sets on August 12th, the anniversary of the beginning of the current Mesoamerican calender cycle.

Strangely, thick sheets of shimmery mica were found within the tiers of the Pyramid of the Sun. Hidden between layers of stone, the mica clearly wasn't decorative; today it is used as an insulator in electronics but it seems unlikely that these ancient people understood such properties. Furthermore, the particular type of mica used in the complex was reportedly traced to Brazil, nearly 2000 miles away. The Pyramid of the Sun has never been fully excavated.
Underground Churches of Lalibela, Ethiopia


(images via: wikimedia commons)

The tiny town of Lalibela, one of Ethiopia's holiest cities, is home to 11 monolithic churches – all carved from the same block of red volcanic rock, with their roofs at ground level. Likely built during the 12th and 13th centuries, the rock-hewn churches include four that are fully free-standing, with the rest either partially attached at the sides to the rock or with 'liberated' facades. They're connected to each other with a maze of underground tunnels, and their construction was engineered to take advantage of natural aquifers deep in the ground.
El Mirador, Guatemala


(images via: authentic maya, wikimedia commons, the history blog)

The 500,000-acre site of El Mirador in Guatemala is referred to as 'the cradle of Maya civilization' and contains not only five Preclassic Maya cities that pre-date the far more famous Tikal by at least 1,000 years, but also the world's largest pyramid by volume and the remains of the world's first highway system.

A remote site located deep in the jungle, El Mirador was't 'discovered' until 1926, and wasn't mapped until 1978. The civic center of the site measures about 10 square miles and contains around 35 'triadic' structures, with 'La Danta' being the most notable at 230 feet tall. Its volume, 2,800,000 cubic meters, rivals that of far more well-known ancient pyramids around the world including those in Egypt. El Mirador is also home to a complex network of large roads, which once linked important architectural compounds and nearby cities.

The 500,000-acre site of El Mirador is threatened by looters, drug traffickers and deforestation, prompting the creation of a 810,000-acre national park in the region, which is currently being established by the Global Heritage Fund and the Guatemalan and U.S. governments.
The Lost City of Mohenjo-Daro, Pakistan


(images via: wikimedia commons, abbas, national geographic)

4,500 years ago, Mohenjo-Daro was one of the largest early urban settlements in the world. It thrived for over a thousand years, but was completely forgotten until excavation revealed its ruins along the Indus River floodplain of what is now Pakistan in 1921. Abandoned around 1500 BCE for reasons unknown, Mohenjo-Daro has a planned layout based on a street grid of buildings made of mortared brick and likely housed around 35,000 residents.

Among many interesting features, what stands out the most about Mohenjo-Daro is plumbing and sewage system that was more sophisticated than what most Western households had until the 20th century. Not only did some home have indoor toilets, but there were actually sewage drains that ran below the streets


نمونه عالی دیگری از طراحی منظر شهری - نروژ

چهارشنبه 30 شهریور 1390 07:42 ق.ظ
طبقه بندی:معماری و شهرسازی، 

طراحی هایی چند عمل‌کردی، خوش ساخت و البته بسیار فرم‌پردازانه رو در طرح های منظرسازی این روزهای اروپا و آمریکا مشاهده می کنیم. این بار در نروژ.
پارک سازی رو باید خیلی جدی تر گرفت! خیلی جدی‌تر از کاشت چهارتا درخت و طرح چهارتا مسیر و نصب چهارتا نیم‌کت تیپ فلزی و یه آب‌سرد کن.
قبلا پروژه های لاین رو هم براتون گذاشته بودم.

Schandorff Square / Østengen & Bergo AS




 © Østengen & Bergo AS

The dead end Schandorff street in the centre of Oslo was converted from car parking lot to an urban green space, Schandorff Square, adding up to an existing green structure through an old cemetery in the east. The square was privately financed by developer Høegh Eiendom AS and completed in 2009 when it was donated to the municipality. The square is surrounded by well-known motives of Oslo: The Trinity Church in the south, and the Deichman Library's pompous pillars in the east. The falling street Keysersgate opens a sight line from west.


Landscape Architect: Østengen & Bergo AS
Location: Akersgata 64-68 Oslo, Norway
Project Area: 2,500 sqm
Project Year: 2009
Photographs: Østengen & Bergo AS

The square creates an important slope of 7 meters height difference between two streets, making it a challenge for accessibility design to cross the square without steps. This has resulted in a curving/slendering walkway, which crosses from the lower to the higher street with a slope of maximum 6.5 %, with regular resting plateaus. The walkway has become an essential and dominating feature for the square, and is therefore given a sculptural design that characterizes the area positively. Moving from lower to higher has become an important way of experiencing the green space. Along the ramp small plazas and vegetated surfaces meet in a finger-woven pattern. The old existing sculpture of the Apostle of Greenland, Hans Egede, has finally got rid of surrounding parked cars and can now rest calmly in a decent green setting.


master plan

The intended design has been to create a central urban green space with simple but sober means. The walkway's body – surface and retaining walls – are made of concrete cast in situ. The small plazas are covered with light grey granite paving, resting on walls performed of cortén steel, creating an overall warm tone.


section

The lawn contributes to a peaceful neighborship to the Trinity church. Two large trees are carefully preserved through the construction period, and create together with mass plantings of flowering iris, catnip, lavender and lady's mantle to a lush and beautiful effect, mainly in blue through the season. A planted cherry grove with white spring blooming will soon contribute to a healthy and good urban environment in a dense area. The office has also prepared a sketch of the neighboring Trinity Church setting. Hopefully, the plans will soon be realized, and contribute to an accomplished area.

طبقه بندی:معماری و شهرسازی، 

واردو دمورا رو که می شناسین. همون کسیه که جایزه‌ی پریتزیکر 2011 رو دریافت کرد. 
برای دوستانی که در وادی معماری کم‌تر آشنایی دارن بگم که جایزه‌ی پریتزیکر تقریبا معروف ترین جایزه معماری دنیا و یه جورایی اسکار معماری به حساب میاد و اشاره هم بکنم که این جایزه سخت به سران قدرت دنیای معاصر، یعنی یهود وابسته ست.
بگذریم.
این دمورا برای طراحی این بنا به طور خاص جایزه پریتزیکر رو دریافت کرد. نمایشگاهی که به جز ساخت خوبش از نمادپردازی خاص و هندسه متفاوتی بهره می بره.

brazilian photographer pedro kok has sent us images of 'casa das histórias paula rego' 
by portuguese architect eduardo souto de moura in cascais, portugal. completed in 2009, 
the exhibition building references the local region's historical architecture in a contemporary way.

paying attention to the pre-existing, natural conditions of the site, the design integrates
the land and trees into the museum's aesthetic presence. the exterior surface, finished in 
a rusty-red coloured concrete, play off the shadow cast by its surrounding, highlighting its 
subtle strokes and texture. a pair of pyramid-shaped towers anchor the facility's profile,
lending a dramatic identity to the project. 

four wings of varying heights and sizes are composed around a central display space reserved 
for temporary exhibitions. in addition to a 200-seat auditorium, the museum hosts a shop, 
cafe and garden. paved with the local blue-grey marble of cascais, the 750 m2 exhibition space 
provides a fresh and neutral backdrop to the displayed art.

من نظم رو دوست ندارم!

طبقه بندی:هنر و گرافیک، 

ایده های فوق العاده ست که به کارهای هنری فوق العاده منجر می شه.
ابتدای کار همه چی عادی به نظر می رسه ، ما آدم ها مرتب کردن رو دوست داریم . نظم رو می پسندیم و برای همین خیلی وقت‌ها چیزهای منظم رو به چیزهای به هم ریخته ترجیح می دیم. اما آیا همیشه نظم و ترتیب خطی و صریح خوشاینده؟
این همون (طعنه) نکته‌ی جالبیه که این چند پرده گرافیک به خوبی از پس بیانش برمیاد.

این تصاویر، رندر صحنه‌هایی سه بعدی از وادی معماری هستند.
شاید بعضی از صحنه ها در شما تردید ایجاد کنن که از کجا معلوم واقعی نباشن! اما خیال تون راحت، این ها واقعیت ندارند.
هدف از گذاشتن این پست به رخ کشیدن رندرها و موفقیت و عدم موفقیت شون در رسیدن به واقعیت نیست، همه شما هم استاد هستین تو این عرصه.
با گذاشتن این پست قرار دارم به هم‌رشته ای های معمار خودم بگم:
شبیه‌سازی واقع‌گرایانه امروزه به یه حرفه‌ی مستقل در وادی معماری و سینما تبدیل شده و برای این کار شرکت ها و آتلیه هایی مستقل در دنیا وجود دارند.
بی خود وقت خودتون رو صرف این جور کارها نکنین. بی دلیل مرعوب این جریانات نشین. به جوهر معماری بپردازین، برای موضوع "طراحی" انرژی بذارین. این طور بچه بازی ها یه حرفه ی مستقله که امکان داره شما رو به کل از طراحی و موضوع اون دور کنه.

Today we've got another roundup for everyone to check out. This time we have a collection of 50 amazing architectural renders from around the internets. We've got mostly modern arch-viz style exteriors and interiors for you, but we threw in a few other types as well. So get inspired after the jump!

معماری آینده شهرهای عظیم

"A chair is a very difficult object. A skyscraper is almost easier." --Mies Van de Rohe, legendary architect.
By that logic, a colossal 2 kilometer high mega-structure should be really easy to visualize and put together. Of course, this is exaggerated and only meant to emphasize thoughtfulness in design. But speaking of immense skyscrapers... We've already talked about gigantic city-structures of Paolo Soleri. Today we are going to see more gigantic and highly imaginative chairs... er, no, mega-structures that were proposed in the last four decades - plus we are going to briefly look into the past, for a glimpse of glorious retrofuture.
We'll start with the re-imagining of the good old Hoover Dam - which includes a "Tower in a Dam", and looks like something dreamed up by Megatron:



(image via)

This design by UK architect Yheu-Shen Chua has been awarded Third Place in eVolo's 2011 Skyscraper Competition: "One of the main purposes of the project is to allow the water from the upstream river to engage directly with the visitors through a series of containers. A hanging tower above the 700-foot drop into the Black Canyon would be used as gallery and a vertical aquarium."
Belgian Architect Vincent Callebaut dreamed up a combination of skyscraper and airship, where the skyscraper itself floats in the air, feeding on a green "algae" energy: the "Hydrogenase" project is as eco-sustainable, as it is beautiful - more info:

Vincent Callebaut uses organic shapes in his designs and and dreams BIG - see all of his fantastic projects here.
Floating Observatories: Unreal Tower Proposed for Taiwan
Strange combination of a tree-like skyscraper and huge Zeppelin airship-inspired floating observation decks is a radical vision by Romanian Dorin Stefan Birou Arhitectura - more info and images here










(image via)

The flowing shapes of this skyscraper remind us of the work of late Jan Kaplicky: on the left is the new national library in Prague, on the right is his "Future Systems" building -


(image via)

The Taipei City Museum of Art concept by OODA is based on two hypercubes and looks like an alien artifact:



Another alien creature-like Taipei concept is proposed for the Performing Arts Center, by B+U design:

Colossal Projects Conceived in the 1980s-1990s
This is a huge tower that was at one time planned for Moscow (by Norman Foster and Partners):




(images via 1, 2)

In 1995, a truly gigantic structure was conceived for Tokyo: X-SEED 4000 - four kilometers high, 800 floors, the tallest building ever envisioned (on the right). Image on the left shows scaled-down two-mile high tower:





Inside the X-SEED 4000:



on the right is yet another super-building concept for Tokyo, conceiving at the height of Japanese asset price bubble in 1989 - Sky City 1000:



The Shimizu TRY 2004 Mega-City Pyramid was another super structure proposed for Tokyo: "The proposed structure is so large that it cannot be built with currently available materials, due to their weight. The design relies on the future availability of super-strong lightweight materials based on carbon nanotubes."





"Large robots would assemble the truss structure, and air bladders would be used to elevate trusses above the first layer using a construction system proposed by Italian architect Dante Bini. Spheroid nodes at the connections between trusses would provide structural support and serve as transfer points for travelers."



On the left is "Project: Spiral" 1000-meter high, designed for Tokyo in 1998. Right image: Noida Tower concept for Noida, india:

Jumeira Garden District structures for Dubai (left) and Seoul Commune 2026 project for South Korea (right):



Dating from 1997 is the Bionic Tower concept for Shanghai and/or Hong Kong (with possibility of building the "Bionic Tower Vertical City" 1.228 meters high):


(images via)

New Thoughts in Mega-scale Architecture
Algorithmic Architecture! More than just a catchy term, this is a great tool in coming up with organic and nature-inspired forms, based on mathematical algorithms:




(images via 1, 2)

...especially for bridges (more info):


(image via)

Boston Arcology (left) is a mega-structure concept by Kevin Schopfer, who also came up with the amazing New Orleans Arcology Habitat (NOAH) (right image, more info). This building was designed using golden proportions and will house 15,000 people:


(left image via)

The Living Mountain project, again from 2011 Evolo Skyscraper Competition, is created to grace the desert of Taklamakan in northwest China:


(image via)

Gardiner Expressway in Toronto is proposed to become the site for mutating "living organism" mega-structure - more info:

Ocean Arcologies: Floating Mega-Cities
Gigantic skyscrapers and mega-cities can grow not only up high, but deep down in the water. This "Water-Scraper" is a rather creative re-thinking of a floating island idea, made for eVolo design competition - more info:


(image via)

Floating cities is not a new concept by any means. Here is a sketch from Popular Mechanics, 1931:



Japanese firm Shimizu also came up with a floating city concept, consisting of floating islands, or rather the "lily-pads" drifting in the equatorial Pacific:


(image via)

On the left is illustration by Paul R. Alexander from the article "Energy from the Ocean: A Resource for the Future", 1989"... On the right: City on the Sea, architect: Eugene Tsui -


(images via)

To give you an idea of the UNDERGROUND super city, here is art from Astounding Stories, November 1937:



Other Elegant Proposed Skyscrapers

Organic forms of all varieties seem to be all the rage nowadays: on the left is "Tree of Life" skyscraper by Ukraine architects (info); on the right is the fantastic "Hydra", which can take energy from... lightnings!
Imaging living in a place that is designed to be struck by lightnings... in a safe manner, of course (more info)


(images via)

The "Hydra", designed by Milos Vlastic, Vuk Djordjevic, Ana Lazovic, Milica Stankovic from Serbia, seems to be the most radical architectural concept out there right now, correct me if I'm wrong:


(images via)

This quite beautiful eco-friendly structure was designed by Indian architect Vikas Pawar for the city of Noida - more info


(image via)

Another eVolo concept worthy of mention is the Flat Tower, by Yoann Mescam, Paul-Eric Schirr-Bonnans, Xavier Schirr-Bonnans, France:




(image via)

Here is 1 Dubai: at 850 meters, it consists of three linked towers, clad in "mosaic-like glass and aluminum-mesh cladding" - designed by Adrian Smith & Gordon Gill:


(images via 1)

Among most elegant proposed skyscrapers we'll have to mention yet another colossal concept for Dubai (featuring beautiful spiral shape) - Dubai City Tower, 2500 meters high:

Glorious Retro-Future Urbanism from the Golden Age of SF

It's been some time since our Glorious RetroFuture Urbanism, Part 1. Since in retrofuture time moves in both directions - dreaming of the future in high style of the past, it's never too late to come up with an update:

"Metropolis" poster by Boris Bilinsky from 1926 and a street view:




Frank R. Paul's vision of a mighty city from "Amazing Stories", 1928:


Note the "slides" cascading down the building! This picture is from 1934:
