TRÊS IRMÃOS SKYSCRAPER – THE REASON WHY

It was 2019 when Kalisode Network moved its first steps towards a skyscraper design. We wanted at first to participate to a contest in which we could be able to confront to this huge theme. Often designing an high-rise it is limited to designing the craziest envelope ever, deliberately dropping all the structural reasons, not caring about installations and inner architectural values. A skyscraper can be the eye-candiest of the exercises, we decided instead to create a journey with our…

EXTERIOR STRUCTURAL PILLARS – THE CONCEPT

Três Irmãos – Skyscraper Project EXTERIOR STRUCTURAL PILLARS – CONCEPT The exterior pillars (structural columns) were designed to take up slanted shapes based on the façade geometry. We would discuss from concept to design, how we modelled the slanted exterior columns. The structural columns in every edifice serve as load-bearing elements and as well transfers vertical loads to underlying supporting structures. In the case of our skyscraper project where we have every column slanted at 25 degrees to the centroid…

LIGHT PENETRATION IN TYPICAL FLOOR

Três Irmãos – Skyscraper Project LIGHT PENETRATION IN TYPICAL FLOOR In photometry, illuminance is the total luminous flux incident on a surface, per unit area. It is a measure of how much the incident light illuminates the surface. As we carry out a study of this daylighting parameter on typical floor levels of our skyscraper project at different times in a year, we intend to understand the nature of incident light rays on typical floor levels and the effects of…

BEAMS STRUCTURE – FROM CONCEPT TO DESIGN

Três Irmãos – Skyscraper Project BEAMS STRUCTURE – FROM CONCEPT TO DESIGN The structural beam system is a vital part of every structural frame whether or not the beams are revealed or hidden. Today we highlight the steps we took to develop the structural beam system for the skyscraper project. CHALLENGES Most structural frame systems are designed with typical beam arrangements across all floors so as to ensure rigidity and simplicity of design choices made. This type of design is…

SOLAR RADIATION ANALYSIS

Três irmãos – Skyscraper Project SOLAR RADIATION ANALYSIS To achieve sustainability and comfort in a built environment, solar radiation analysis on building projects is very important. We are working towards a sustainable building with our skyscraper project. The major tools used for analysis are #Rhinoceros3D, #Grasshopper as the visual programming tool and #Ladybug as an extension. EXCERPT FROM LADYBUG’S WEBPAGE Ladybug imports standard EnergyPlus Weather files (.EPW) into Grasshopper and Dynamo. It provides a variety of 2D and 3D interactive…

FOYER DESIGN

Três irmãos – Skyscraper Project FOYER DESIGN A foyer from its definition and functionality is an entrance hall or other open area in a building used by the public, especially in hotels, theatres and high-rise structures. In this project, the first eight (8) floors were dedicated to function as the foyer to host public movements and to serve as the entrance to the interior and upper floors of the building. The floor slabs of the foyer were designed to have…

TRÊS IRMÃOS SKYSCRAPER PROJECT

TRÊS IRMÃOS SKYSCRAPER PROJECT AN OVERVIEW OF THE INTERIOR VERTICAL STRUCTURES Our highlight today on our 72 stories skyscraper is the interior vertical structures. The whole structure was designed as a hybrid structural system, comprising a combination of both tubular and rigid structural frame. The interior columns were designed as concrete members and typically help to resist gravity loads coming on and from the skyscraper. Due to the shape complexity of the structure and increasing gravity loads on lower floor…

Tunneling software uses – from AU 2016

Autodesk provides a variety of tools to design and construct infrastructure projects, particularly at the Autodesk University meeting of 2016 the software house talked about one subject very compelling to my daily job: underground tunnelling. I have been experiencing difficulty to proceed only through BiM tools in the modelling of the project, it is now clear to me that BiM is thought for 3D modelling of residential and public buildings, but not specifically for long curvy objects that go across…

IFC 4.3 RAIL a standard for infrastructures is coming

Building Smart international is working at the phase 2 of the new harmonized standard called IFC rail v.4.3 All the infrastructure BIM users will have a common language to exchange file format with rail specific parameters (e.g. the rail alignments when rail trail tilts on one side). We are on the good path towards the BiM detailing and maturity. Check out the attached video from their conference. #buildingsmart #bim #infrastructure #rail #consortium #rfi #sncf #trafikverket #rbim #väylä #sbbcffffs #öbb #banenor…

daylight and architecture within Wim Wenders’s film direction

It’s just impressive the clarity of Wim Wenders. He frames his images in the camera as well his black eyeglass frame does with him. In this short sequences taken from Pina (Bausch), 2011, Wim Wenders plays with daylight and the built environment as if he were an architect of light. With this, I mean that he uses a camera cart on a very still background, which seems to be only a postcard or a theatre upstage, it is absolutely surreal…

Looking at light in the Kimbell art museum

Here we publish an excerpt from the article of the colleague Priji Balakrishnan, titled: “LOOKING AT LIGHT IN THE KIMBELL ART MUSEUM” If there is one building that I can write about without having visited it in person, it would be the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, Texas. My appreciation of the building — its aesthetics, its proportions and above all its emanating light — has only grown with time. The Kimbell Art Museum is a creation by Louis Kahn, located in Texas.…
