Sky high Future

5 May

But, what about houses in the future? The past few years, buildings have become bigger, taller and more modern than ever. In the future, these will become even extraordinary than they already are. But what kind of buildings can we expect?

Mighty tall..

In China, MAD architects came up with a building that, for us, looks pretty futuristic. The tower, which is 800 meters high, is not like other skyscrapers. It declares its significance in the unique way it relates to the city around it.

Everybody knows a skyscraper like a linear, simple and structured building in the center of the city. But, with all the new technologies these days, it’s possible to improve these boring buildings in many different ways. New, original designs can be designed and implemented, the interior can be completely modernized and every single object can be made much easier to use with the help of technology.

Although, this Chinese building is a great example for the upcoming buildings in the future. The two towers are connected with a cable car at the top. This allows people to travel around and through the city, echoing the movement and dynamism of the city.

Another reason why this isn’t just a regular tower, is because of its function. It’s not just an hotel or an office, but the tower attends as a living admixture. Commerce, entertainment and service are raised to the same level as hotel and offices functions, establishing a solid city that makes this huge tower, and also the people who use it, part of the metropolitan life.

The Mobility of people will be improved by the cable car that’s on top of the building, because it’s a smart way to displace yourself with thinking about the Material Wellbeing like transport on the road as well.

.. Housing smart..

Not only the business buildings or huge hotels within the cities are getting enhanced. Also peoples living spaces are getting improved. A project designed by Giacomo Pala combines elaborately formal and incoherent shape and program:

  • The expansion of the city of tomorrow
  • The issues of globalization
  • Real specific housing problemsThe project is divided in two parts: a housing block and a public space.  Your Social Wellbeing will be effected with this project, because of the public space, you have Interpersonal Relationships with other people from the inside, and out of the building. You could make new Friends and your Social Life will get a boost!

The second one is the lower part, where you could find the public spaces. Sport clubs, gyms or swimming pools occupy 3 floors within the building. The second part isn’t directly connected to the first part, to uphold the diversity of the public, semipublic and private spaces.

The housing block is the upper part of the building which separates 4 different living areas. In every area there are apartments, but all of them for a different type of persons. The 1st apartments are intended for singles or couples. The 2nd apartments are for families that consist of 4 people, the 3rd for three people and the 4th are double height apartments for also four people. The layout of the building is 1. 60%, 2. 17%, 3. 17% and 4. 6%. The building has room for 650 people altogether. That’s just the housing part of the project.

.. but green for sure

buildings 3Now you might think that these gigantic buildings use lots and lots of energy, but the MAD architects also think about the environment. This green project in Beijing is a contemporary interpretation of China’s natural philosophy in the modern city. The building was centered around the Chaoyang Park and, even though it raises high above the park, the designers aimed to merge the landscape with the building to make it become the natural extension of the city.

The architectural complex could be compared to a landscape:

  • The top building could be the peaks of the mountains
  • The office buildings could be the hills
  • The smaller office buildings the slope
  • The high-end offices as the ridge
  • And the residential buildings as mountain ranges and other landscape elements like lakes, springs, streams, valleys, rocks, springs and peaks

However, the architects created this concept with the idea that the natural beauty of the park was translated into the architectural creation. The result is an organic, naturally grown and not built assemblage, that successfully merges with its surrounding environment. This Green concept is a good idea to expand the Neighborhood, because it provides a green environment. This will also get a Positive Effect on peoples Emotional Wellbeing, because it furnishes less pressure on the environment and on the people who live in it.
