Edition Autumn 2012 Publisher responsible: Birgit Huybrechs Production: A10, RSM Co-Publishers ities are the places of the future. Worldwide, more and more people are moving to the city. As of 2008 already more people are living in the city than outside. One can argue whether this is a good development or not. However, the fact is that cities will keep growing, as they are the centres of economy, dynamics and human creativity. Therefore, solutions for problems will eventually also come from cities. The city is also the place where architecture flowers. The city is the architect’s primary...

Nikolay Kravtsov Sports architecture for EURO 2012 in Ukraine Ukraine (Ua) — Large-scale sporting events are becoming more and more important for cities. Cities compete with each other to host the Olympic Games and international football championships. The large numbers of people attending and the global media attention make these sorts of events the ultimate form of city marketing. The architecture of stadiums and other buildings is increasingly being used as a way to create an appealing image. At the same time, the construction of the necessary infrastructure, multifunctional sport...

on all façades and entrances, as well as in the luxury boxes of floor-to-ceiling glass for the president and VIPs and in the administrative and media rooms. In designing stadiums, safety is just as important as a good view of the field. In Lviv, the evacuation doors have been equipped with anti-panic systems in line with UEFA fire prevention standards. The atrium windows are equipped with an anti-fire gravitational system, allowing them to be opened quickly. In addition, insulation requirements also needed to be taken into account. On the sunny side of the stadium, glass with improved...

Cécile Septet Compact design Changé (FR) — Increasingly, city centres as well as suburban areas are seeing the construction of compact buildings housing multiple functions, motivated by considerations of sustainability. This makes it possible to improve the internal organisation, reduce construction costs and the environmental footprint. The building in the commune of Changé (4 km from Laval), designed by Colboc Franzen & Associés architects for the accounting group Fiteco and housing both the Fiteco headquarters and a local branch office, is a good example of this strategy. Initially, the...

reason, the ‘slim line’ CS 24-SL renovation system was used, an extra narrow profile which is ideal for buildings which originally contained steel window frames. Because of the particularly cold climate, the profile’s standard thermal insulation was insufficient, and the façade openings were given double glazing with an air cavity in between. The Reynaers system was used on both the inside and outside of dome windows. The original steel windows dating from the early 20th century have been maintained and renovated only in the interior of the lower levels, as a reminder of the past....

TOWARDS A SUSTAINABLE URBANISATION THE CITY IS THE SPATIAL THEME WHICH WILL BE OF THE GREATEST IMPORTANCE IN THE FUTURE. THERE‘S A VERY GOOD REASON WHY THE THEME OF THE 5TH INTERNATIONAL ARCHITECTURE BIENNALE ROTTERDAM WAS THE EXPRESSIVE MAKING CITY: NO CITIES, NO FUTURE. THE FIGURES SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES. CITIES HAVE EXPERIENCED EXPONENTIAL GROWTH OVER THE PAST TWO HUNDRED YEARS, GROWTH WHICH SHOWS NO SIGN OF SLOWING DOWN. IN 1800, 3% OF THE GLOBAL POPULATION LIVED IN CITIES; IN 1950 THIS WAS 30% AND IN 2006 IT WAS MORE THAN 50%. IT IS EXPECTED THAT BY 2050, MORE THAN SEVEN BILLION PEOPLE,...

PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD ARE DRAWN TO CITIES LIKE IRON TO A MAGNET. BIG CITIES MEAN BIGGER OPPORTUNITIES – FOR WORK, FOR A BETTER STANDARD OF LIVING, AND FOR A MORE INTERESTING LIFESTYLE How can administrators, policy-makers, politicians, market parties, designers, and citizens understand something as huge and as apparently chaotic and incomprehensible as the city? And what does urban development mean for Reynaers in terms of things like acoustics, fire safety, energy use, and sustainability? According to the British theoretical physicist Geoffrey West, a scientific approach is necessary in...

the International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam states on its website, ‘... our cities can only take us to a better future if we do a better job of designing, planning and governing them.’ But what is better? Scientists, designers and politicians are engaged in conversations about where the focus of urban innovations should be. ‘I have no doubt that the city is where it will be happening in the future,’ says Alexander D’Hooghe, associate professor of Architectural Urbanism at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). ‘But there’s a misunderstanding as to what is contained in the...

D’Hooghe recognises that this does not make for an attractive city. But it is reality. Urban developers and architects have the responsibility to develop a sustainable perspective for these areas, for which there are no overarching plans, and to create new typologies for the less compact city. D’Hooghe sees three important themes in this: first, the development of enclaves, ‘cities within the city’ which have a specific identity and meet the needs of a specific target group; second, the design and re-use of the many ‘big boxes’ found in the suburbs – big, flat buildings which were...
