The Art Gallery of New South Wales narrowed the list of architecture firms vying for its $450 million Sydney Modern project from 12 to 5, and there were no Sydney firms running. Stage one of the selection process was anonymous. The Sydney Modern should be ready by 2021. Sydney architects were represented in the jury. Local firms may work alongside. In contention in Stage 2 were Kerry Hill Architects, Singapore, Perth, Sean Goodsell Architects, Melbourne, Kengo Kuma and Associates, Tokyo, Paris, RMA Architects, Boston, Mumbai, and SANAA, Tokyo. Architecture now, is an international practice. Sydney needs a great amount of vision now. This news item is from 2015 January. Update: SANAA, Tokyo won. Find presentation drawings' thumbnails here from the Stage 2 entries. Find the names of Stage one shortlisted architects also.

20 km high structure - a space elevator, is set to become a reality? It is going to be a freestanding tower where astronauts would ascend by an electric elevator and space planes would be launched from its top. Elevator will also be used for wind energy generation.

Step Wells All Across India. #WaterTable  
The ancient #stepwells of India are man-made wells or reservoirs that take one down to the water table. They also served as spots for socialising for women and were also apt for meditation and prayer. India's stepwells are fast disappearing. They are feats of Engineering actually. Find photos of stepwells on the page accessible via link.

#Treescrapers #typology #UrbanLiving  
Treescrapers, a current popular typology in speculative architecture existing mostly on paper, is a building scheme for 'High Density Urban Living' that incorporates both environmental gains and high density. The porous designs look futuristic, and maybe actually stink (?) so that they actually don’t look like the future of architecture. The article speaks of carbon emissions - embodied and operational. It talks whether these are actually 'net sustainable'. Balcony Tree - Garden Tower - .
