architectureholic facility where information on all the needs of home and inspiration on house construction. This is a 14 Series pendant lights by Omer Arbel for Bocci. The 14 Series is a family of low-voltage pendant lights designed to be clustered into groups. Unlike most contemporary lighting the 14 Series pendants are visually unassuming in and of themselves, however when they are clustered together they gain tremendous strengths, the effect being of many tiny candles encased in floating spheres of water. The light interacts with the imperfections and bubbles of the cast glass to create a visually rich halo of light. Cast glass is an organic process – imperfect by nature, so each 14 Series pendant is inherently unique. The 14 Series is suitable for residential and commercial use and is CSA- and UL-approved. The line consists of a single pendant, the 14.1, to a 25 pendant chandelier, the 14.25. Custom chandeliers are available and designed on a project by project basis. Given the versatile nature of the piece it easily translates into many different applications. Popular applications are private residences, restaurants, public lobbies, clothing stores, atriums, movie sets, casinos and hotels.

Chicago’s Navy Pier to get a green revamp with hanging gardens and eco delights. A team of designers led by James Corner Field Operations won the rights to the redesign and reorganization of Navy Pier emblematic of the city of Chicago. The new plan will further increase the influx of tourists from the dock of the Marina and popular calls for a luxury pool will face an ice skating ring in winter and a sandy beach area that will help you a lot more pleasure. But this is not the final review.
The new park with a Ferris wheel up will ensure that you have a peaceful vision of Chicago, while the hanging gardens that add a touch of green to the whole project. Not only the hanging gardens, but the team is the reorganization of field in a way that can act as a breeding ground for some of the rich fauna of the surroundings. Raised seating allows visitors to get the best possible views while the presentation of project operations on the corner lot of James was not flashy or which took over most of the characteristics of ecosystems, is that could be worked into the budget constraints of the city.
The project was completed in 2016 and will be time for the centenary celebrations of the Navy Pier. I could not have been responsible for green concerts, but the hanging gardens should help the city to reduce carbon emissions in the air and also to encourage other structures in town for a ride to cleaner technologies. So while keeping an eye on the progress of work at the Navy Pier, we hope that future updates, including integration of alternative energy sources to help the city reduce dependence on the grid. Sunroofs would be a good way to start.

WOHA’s School of the Arts project fuses sustainability with practicality. The need to design sustainable buildings has never been more important than today. Since the buildings themselves consume huge amounts of electricity due to heating and cooling requirements, which contribute significantly to greenhouse gas emissions and waste. But WOHA, a Singapore-based design and architecture firm, is a company with a difference, to create sustainable commercial structures trying to quit at least possible environmental impact. In 2009, the company completed work on the Singapore Art School, a perforated structure that allows for ventilation and natural light to all areas of the interior.
The new design has two levels connected visual backdrop and blank canvas called with the bottom layer used for public communication and the top layer of the strong interaction. Although there is no division between the two, the visual connection ensures that they are linked. The backdrop is a podium that houses a concert hall, black box theater, drama and performing small spaces. It is through this level that the school communicates with the public. Small spaces are naturally ventilated, leaving the need for the acceding countries far behind. There is also a civic amphitheater built under the trees.
The black cloth, meanwhile, serves as a school of education. All classes are the studies are well ventilated with natural light. Use a green facades air filtration system to remove dust and excessive glare, while the acoustic ceilings absorb noise.
WOHA school building designed to maximize ventilation and not only light but also to facilitate the flow of the gentle breeze. The roof is home to an amusement park and a running track of 400 meters, also provide an outlet for their energy.
School of The Arts: WOHA Architects
The school combines a high-density, inner-city school with a professional performing arts venue.
WOHA design has been acclaimed by many. The company is known for the design and construction of sustainable buildings and even received an award for past projects.

Best examples of nature inspired architecture. Nature has always been an inspiration to people and when it comes to solvingcomplex problems of architectural design, architects are seeking refuge against itto understand and learn the natural way to handle things. The process in which the inspiration of nature and its elements like trees, plants, hills, etc. determines the course of architecture, was named as “biomimicry.” Learning from nature not only helps solve problems related to the design, but allows the integration of sustainability for building sound structures echo.

Chicago’s celebrated Navy Pier to be architecturally ‘enhanced’ by BIG architects. The time Navy Pier has long been one of the landmarks of Chicago. In fact, this stretch of 1010 m is considered one of the sights around Lake Michigan.However, despite its magnificent scenery of the famous pier still has no credible link to the rest of the metropolitan territory. Well, as a solution architecture, based on AECOM architects BIG and Americans have seen their ambitious proposal to complete a “revitalization” of the coastline important.
Give importance to both the physical as well as a visual component, the design effort is multifaceted space that divide the area into traffic areas with high accessibility. These designations include a park area of East End, a spring park, garden glass, Skyline Gardens, Gate Park and eventually the South Basin.
Each of the individual spaces refers to a type of end-user experience. For example, call Park East End provides a suitable view along the water front, accentuating the psychological impact on the lake and the endless sky. This landscape will be enhanced by a spectacular show of water 500 meters high at the end of the pier.
Similarly, the gardens would be especially designed to celebrate the unique beauty of nature. The Crystal Garden will include a landscape protected inside transparent glass facades. This enclosed area will combine many of the public attractions, such as sustainable food production, entertainment, education and experience, even cooking. On the other hand, the Garden of horizon suggests a lot of rooftop gardens, organized through various geometric figures.
Finally, the “pièce de résistance” of the overall design of the stairs shall be called great. Conceived as a seating area of the stadium, this broad scope of application are numerous steps that advance the roof, too. This model of intelligent design, in turn, offer panoramic views of the city, from an inconspicuous area of public opinion.
