 Gift Ideas for Architects

   от Morphocode


Picking a gift for an architect may be a hard task. We have gathered a short list of gift ideas for architects. The list contains some of the objects we use on a day-to-day basis and we like for the quality of their design.

Cube Timer

Cube Timer

Cube Timer

A useful minimal cube timer. We love it for the ease of use. Each side of the cube represents a time interval in minutes. You can start the timer by just flipping the cube over. When the time is over the cube starts beeping.

The build quality may have been better, but still – this is a great little timer.

 Парк на неизявения

   от ProvoCAD architecture


Здравейте уважаеми читатели! Тъй като много много отдавна не съм писал в това малко идеалистично интернет местенце и тъй като не е хубаво да запустява говоренето за публичното ни пространство, реших да прекопая символично градинката. В днешното предаване ще засегнем един така по екзистенциален въпрос а именно темата за маркирането на територия и естествената нужда на човек да остави нещо след себе си за да го помнят. За целта ще използваме терен за онагледяване така наречения „Кучешки парк“ в София.

This is another post in the Morphocode Picks series, collecting some of the most interesting stuff that we’ve shared recently on facebooktwitter and google+.

Архитектурните конкурси, знаете, са сложна работа. Толкова сложна, че хората в стара Европа се сдружават в ред независими организации, правят конференции и се опитват да вдигат шум на законодателно и наднационално ниво. Всичко това в името на честната конкуренция, качествения архитектурен продукт и равния шанс за всички.

We have just released Rabbit 0.4 – the latest version of our plug-in for Grasshopper. The new release is the first step in the process of open-sourcing the plug-in.

 

No Limits

Rabbit 0.4 no longer have expiry date. This release also removes the maximum grid size limit, so that you can fully explore cellular automata. As usual, Rabbit is freely available for download on our site.

Точно на символичната дата 10 ноември, съвсем случайно при това, попаднахме в едно изоставено училище. Намира се в малко село близо до София, в подножието на Средна гора. И не, това няма да бъде носталгичен пост за загубеното старо време, за краха на образователната система и за красивата българска природа. Просто няколко снимки, които да покажат, че и най-обикновената сграда може да послужи за отлична метафора на миналото ни.

Селото

Селото е с малко къщи, живописно разположени по течението на река Тополница. Има площад с читалище и училище, а малко по-нагоре е кметството с пощата. През соца, знаем, дори и най-малките населени места са били оборудвани с “комплект” задължителни обществени сгради. Това село не прави изключение.

 Global Trends of Urbanization

   от Morphocode


Cities are the manifestation of the cultural, economic and social acceleration that we have experienced in our modern history. In 1950 about 2/3 of the population worldwide lived in rural settlements and 1/3 in urban settlements. By 2050, we will observe roughly the reverse distribution, with more than 6 billion people living in the messy, burgeoning athmosphere of urbanized areas.
According to the Sustainable Urbanization Policy Brief, urban centres currently occupy less than 5% of the world’s landmass. Nevertheless they account for around 70% of both global energy consumption and greenhouse gas emission. Innovation in urban infrastrucure and technology is essential when addressing this issue. For instance, greenhouse gas emissions could be reduced by up to 1.5 billion CO2e annually by 2030, primarily through transformative change in transport systems in the world’s 724 largest cities[1].

 Urban Layers: What’s next?

   от Morphocode


We recently announced our latest project Urban Layers – an interactive map that explores the structure of Manhattan’s urban fabric.

The project is a part of an ongoing research focused on the intersection of open data and urban planning. In that sense, visualizing historical data marks the begging of a long-term initiative.
At that point we’ve used open data and some of the latest mapping technologies to render more than 45000 buildings and allow user-interaction with the map.

We are happy to trace and track all of the positive feedback and shout out a big “Thanks” to everyone who shared the project!

Rabbit - our beloved plug-in for Grasshopper will soon get an update! The most important thing is that we will open source the plug-in.

Rabbit is written in C# and is based on the Rhino & Grasshopper SDK. The code will be published on github so that anyone will be able to contribute and help improve the plug-in. We will also remove all limitations related to the grid size.

Adding more features is also on the todo list, so if you have any specific requirement in mind – share it in the comments bellow or on the Rabbit page.

 Announcing Urban Layers

   от Morphocode


We are happy to announce that Urban Layers is online!

Urban Layers is an interactive map created by Morphocode that explores the structure of Manhattan’s urban fabric . The map lets you navigate through historical fragments of the borough that have been preserved and are now embedded in its densely built environment.
