Bad Taste ● Sneaker Tectonics

Hello my friend,

we back again with the famous by now “Bad Taste” section.

Sneaker Tectonics is not a bad project, simply because:

its not a project

nuff said

I mean it was probably a kewl task to test ur 3D modelling skills, texturing and press the little magic button “render”. Other than that you cannot possibly treat this as a realistic proposal. hahah image you wake up every morning and have this view from your window.

HOWEVER, if you have a secret plan building this in a place with LasVegas aesthetics and a lot oil money maybe it will be a goer.

this guyz can be potential clients

They would love a new mall in their city looking like this

Tip : try to “fillet” the edges of the shoes. they might look more sexy

ciao for nowz

Homemade Fashion // Producing Culture [again]

In a struggle to redefine algorithmic drosscapes we got inspired by the world famous Producers of Culture a.k.a Le Ayala[ ], Boffo, something, something, something.

As clearly illustrated bellow i got a nail passed through my jumper so i can visualise and orchestrate interconnected nodes.

Big up to me for testing architectural language in 1:1 scale prototypes

F.G all ze Way

Floating homes // bad.taste.Lolz

hahahha look at this !

We are not talking about a waste of materials if it ever gets build. We are talking about waste of RAM for this rendering to be done

pure FAIL

“This over-the-top tropical floating island is a fantasy dreamed up by Yacht Island Design, which planned it as a private luxury yacht to accommodate 10 guests with about 57,000 square feet of usable space. Director Rob McPherson estimates it would cost “several hundreds of million euros to build.”

The company also provides sketches and renderings for several other fanciful floating creations, such as one called The Streets of Monaco and a futuristic sea-pod called Project Utopia. In the works are aquatic projects titled Oriental Chuan and Eastern Promise.”

NEWS // Fake Rhino attempts to escape ! LOL

hahaha i just love peepol from China/Japan…random post to the bone !

According to BBC :

“A zoo in Tokyo has been simulating a rhino escape to prepare staff for a possible emergency.

Two employees wore a life-size rhino costume and tried to escape the compound before being hit with fake tranquilisers and trapped in nets.”

Mark Percy reports.

F*CK YEAAAH ! !

ARCHITECTURE ● Meat & Butcher // the best excuse for a cool student project

I know most of you navigate in cyberspace in order to stumble upon cool images or event better KILLER images from time to time.

Architecture education has been long now filled with skillful students that are super capable of producing amazing work. However when it comes to the actual proposal and justification of their projects we all witness a philosophical funeral.

You all know what I’m talking about but do not really talk about it in your studio.

“I want to do something nice, something f*cking amazing, sooo amazing that my images will be like Oreos on a milkshake”

“I want my drawings to be cool and have something (?) to do with new school / high tech, BUT in the same time inject a bit the character of traditional know how….you know so that peepol in London will think I’m good.”

STFU!

all your drawings will be done with the latest softwares and this “atmosphere for the drawing to convey” will be equal to a “Make your photos look VINTAGE” app.

OM.F.G

1)

One of the best excuses to pursue such a project with clear consciousness is the BUTCHER & MEAT concept (hahah i just said concept ! )

take a look at this render…If you still dont know what is going on..I will reveal the secret :

“Today, the British public are losing touch with traditional craft methods, consuming products without realising the processes involved. These once handed down processes are becoming lost as our nation becomes more globalized.”

“The Institute of Meat aims to reintroduce these understated crafts and skills into the city centre by placing them within the retail high street…”

PROBLEM SOLVED : we take this symbolic (but still functional!) cow facade style building, place it next to M & S, Vodafone or GAP and BOOM!

anyway..lets continue

2)

Next project: celebrating the ambiguous architectural role of Meat production process (hahah) is coming again from our beloved Presidents Medals.

Note 1 : the skills of these students are f*cking TOP! not like the previous Pokemon

BUT!!!!

“The trajectories of gunfire will be replaced with slow moving tomatoes, courgettes and sumptuous olives.”

hah come on. The guy has the skills to make such a drawing and invests all his energy in “slow moving tomatoes”.. Just so he can do a project like that! The power of the autistic narrative my friends.

Note 2 : before you start trolling about how little we respect the PM and bla bla bla.. when I first saw this project I was 90 % it will scoop the Medal. I even placed a small bet with my tutor (2 cookies).. so shhhh

3)

hahhaha,

welcome back my beloved suckerpunch (!) friends..

Ok, what is going on here

“Primal Parts focused on exploring the possible affects and spatial conditions in architecture by analyzing the heterogeneous composition of biological parts. A set of biological parts were configured then dismembered through the use of butchering techniques.”

Translation :

we wanted to check our 3D skills and ended up producing forms that looked like…mmm…whatever you see above.

Then we thought that we might get away by saying our project investigates biological parts ( yes thats the point we laugh..hahah).

Finally we decided to “brain-f*uck” our readers by saying that somehow BUTHCHERING techniques are involved in this diarrhea

President’s Medals // Epic Fail No.2 OR a cyborgian speculation for COD haters

hello again my weaklings,

after popular demand / following our “presidents medal epic fail No1″ (+) we decided to speculate on another super radical project-entry of PM 2011.
This time the pokemon wannabe starchitect is James Turner from Bath Uni.

We found his last project so influential that could not resist developing his initial visualizations. (we are sure he will continue with at least a 3year Phd degree in connection with his Bs1 Museum)

The project is so strong that questions the limits between real and virtual architecture. Thus, we believe, it would function much better in a cyborgian platform for more than one participant to interact. For instance his Museum, could benefit from the existing online game Counter strike.

Well played James. We rarely see projects that manage to curate front-end technologies and embrace post-industrial systems in the same time. If it was up to me, i would build the Bs1 tomorrow morning.

Link to the original project (+)

“BS1 Art aims to create a ‘Home for Bristol Art’. Bristol city centre bears the scars of wartime bombing, is strangled by post-war infrastructure and has been left forgotten by subsequent layers of development, with Castle Park as a physical memory of this broken cityscape. The site was created through an initial strategic masterplanning proposal for the wider city centre to create a new gravitational pull within the city. “

“The gallery aims to ‘make art more accessible’, through a diverse spatial journey and sense of heightened domesticity, making for a more familiar and accessible viewing experience. This is juxtaposed with a diverse range of architectural backdrops akin to the genre of art exhibited.”

“I believe art and architecture should manifest and communicate cultural values, although arguably ‘Most art [architecture] means nothing to most people’, due to their failings to communicate, or the misunderstanding of complex embodied messages. Creating a journey through the building, the human experience of transition, the entrance, and the subsequent experience of the building portrays an overall domestic scale, intentionally bringing the lofty art world down to a level within reach of all the intended users.”

“The proposal aims to use contemporary ornament, whereby the building as a piece of architecture [art], manifests and communicates the cultural conditions of its creation, integrated as ornament into the essential construction of the building through its detailing and materiality. This could present an argument, for a more culturally sustainable and timeless style of architecture that speaks of its time, place and society.”


“Ornament is not used in the traditional manner as an appliqué, but is carefully embodied into the overall narrative of the building, such as the familiar yet unfamiliar long format brickwork, and clipped expressive form developed from the idea of a simple pitched roof. “


Note:
cos you tend to ask a lot of stoopid questions lately, do not bother before consulting the “about?” page.

President’s Medals//Epic Fail No.1 OR a speculative research in the middle of nowhere

^^^, sup little bitchez!!?

Just yesterday we had a crazy night out with Winy the Maass. During the crazy champagne war action we had the chance to discuss a super juicy architectural topic.
The potential difference between stealing, copying and developping someone’s else idea.
Need I not refer to our close friend Mark.

Anyway, just after revealing to you both Part 1 & 2 President’s Medals Winners we have a series of projects which have caught our attention.

Today we will be sharing with you a continuation of Carl Fredrik Valdemar Hellberg’s work coming straight from the AA in London.

Here is a link to the original project submitted (+)

“In the desert northeast of Los Angeles in an abandoned city called California City the 739600m2 Second Community floats above the desert floor like a mountain avatar. In its crater the 1500 heliostatic mirrors reflect the light onto the artificial sky covering the desert of the trans-identity port. With a capacity of 40,000 people the port gathers in its featureless white space individuals open to role-play. “

“The Second Community explores an alternative identity tourism that goes beyond the virtual space of online role-playing games, the open desert of the Burning Man festival and the convention halls of Cosplayers.”

“Spanning half a kilometer the artificial desert of the port isolates the person in a void of imagination where the persona of an individual becomes a fugitive and creative semiotic gadget which collectively generate a public space of radical self exploration an experimentation.”

“The porous mountain avatar surrounding and supporting the sky of the port collects its energy from the concentrated solar power plant in the center of the crater, harvesting the power of the sun and delivers it to the caves around the centered port where the identity tourists prepare for the events in the port.”

“Totally! And I was like, this thing is full on ugly. Like a bridge on acid with all that metal and stuff. And oh my God, its freaking huge and it was so strange, cuz there were like no walls or doors and everything was like totally white.”

“There were like thousands of people totally doing weird cool stuff. You should totally come, its freakin gnarly!”

For the F.G team this was an opportunity to initiate a speculative research concerning projects in the middle of nowhere.

Big up to mi boi Valdemar and our hommies down the AA and RIBA
