GenerativeComponents basic scripting notes (by Davide Madeddu)
Ho pubblicato gli script dei tutorial sul modelling e sullo scripting, ed una breve presentazione in power point nella quale ho riassunto le principali caratteristiche dello scripting ed alcuni esempi interessanti presenti nella guida GC oppure tra i file dei workflow samples.
Il concorso AAA Architetti cercasi 2008, bandito da Confcooperative − Federabitazione Lombardia, si pone come primo obiettivo la ricerca di nuove forme progettuali per la residenza cooperativa. Forme che si facciano portatrici delle istanze innovative necessarie a rispondere ai mutamenti che hanno investito in questi ultimi anni la realtà della residenza e dell'abitare contemporaneo.
Per conferire al tema una cornice compiuta e un campo specifico di sperimentazione concreta, è stato individuato un lotto di progetto posto nella periferia dell'area orientale milanese. Questa parte della città è un interessante palcoscenico dei mutamenti della Milano contemporanea: qui si confrontano la riconversione di interi quartieri e la loro rifunzionalizzazione nel quadro della nuova economia globalizzata e la costruzione ex novo di quartieri residenziali, esempi di un desiderio di ritorno alla città che si constata sempre più generalizzato a livello europeo.
A nuovi problemi, nuove risposte da nuovi protagonisti
Il concorso vuole essere un appello diretto a tutti i professionisti d'Europa che abbiano intenzione di confrontarsi con il tema dell'abitare contemporaneo con un atteggiamento il più possibile aperto e multidisciplinare, dove l'innovazione e la freschezza delle proposte presentate riceveranno grande attenzione.Nell'ottica di incentivare la ricerca e la spinta all'innovazione, è stato stabilito che al concorso possano partecipare solo professionisti di età inferiore ai 35 anni.

Reach out. Take hold. The character of a neighborhood is a reflection of the people who live there. When people feel connected to a place, they feel more connected to one another. The community becomes an extended family and life more meaningful. Thus, we're looking for urban planning approaches where revamped environments bring current residents together, particularly families. This is a chance to repair the essential relationships between social work, nature and urban infill with ideas that value humanistic thinking and imagination over bulldozers. Ponder the kinds of structures and landscapes that typically exist in run-down areas and transform them into eco-wise spaces that make life better. How might you overcome the inevitable resistance to change, and harness the community's human resources? Introducing eldercare and childcare programs or sustainable landscaping with useable harvests might be just what's needed. The best plans, no matter their originality or scale, will aim to positively affect neighboring blocks as well.

Toftegard Square South International Design Competition
Toftegards Plads Syd (Toftegard Square South) has remained largely unused for several years. In its current form it far from reflects the fact that it is one of the most important and most distinctive gateways to Copenhagen. The City of Copenhagen has therefore decided to launch a competition to obtain ideas for the creation of a lively, human and vibrant urban space of high architectural quality.
Entrants in the competition may also include proposals for new buildings, various types of coverings and other structures in the square. The new square must be part of the ongoing development that will turn the southern part of the Valby district into one of the most interesting areas in Copenhagen.

Walsall is changing.
Things have happened.
Things are happening.
Working with our partners Advantage West Midlands, Walsall Council and Walsall Regeneration Company, Urban Splash are already delivering Phase One of the Waterfront development just near The New Art Gallery - a collection of truly stunning buildings designed by SMC Alsop and shedkm which are set within a public realm designed by Grant Associates.
Urban Splash has now been invited to come up with plans for Phase Two, the Lex site. This is where we need a great architect to work with us to deliver yet more award winning buildings. It's a real key site that's sort of triangular in shape and bordered on two sides by canals.
Our aspirations for this site are typically high. We're looking for excitement, flair, imagination - basically we're looking for the defining piece of architecture forWalsall.
