Arquitetura para um Futuro Sustentável

Projetos futuristas para um mundo sustentável:

Bank of America Tower at One Bryant Park, New York. When it comes to green architecture they don’t get much greener than the Bank of America Tower in New York. This $1 billion, 54 storey, 1,200 foot tall tower will house 2.1 million square foot of office space.

India Tower, Mumbai. When first announced many commentators reacted with aghast to the renders of India Tower claiming it looked more like a stack of misaligned boxes than an intelligently designed building.

Residence Antilia, Mumbai. Believe it or not but this 70 storey, 803 foot tall tower is going to be the home for a single family, that of Indian property mogul Mukesh Ambani.

Burj al-Taqa, UAE. Well it had to happen: it just wouldn’t be a post about green architectural and innovative construction without a mention of one of the emirates. The Burj al-Taqa is a totally self-sufficient office tower to be constructed in Dubai, Bahrain and Riyadh that will use wind, solar and water to produce all necessary energy with zero emissions.

San Francisco Civic Tower, SF. After a long time on the drawing board, the City of San Francisco finally gave the green light (no pun intended) to the 12 storey Civic Tower.

Masdar, Abu Dhabi. Even the largest of green projects pale in comparison with the sheer scale and ambition of the Masdar Initiative. This 64,583,462 square foot development takes environmental design to a whole new level.

Khanty Mansiysk Tower, Siberia. This 917 foot tall tower in Khanty Mansiysk is designed by Foster + Partners to be a multi use living and workspace capable of withstanding the hot and cold extremes of the Siberian climate.

Crystal Island, Moscow. Crystal Island will be the largest building in the world when completed. Crystal Island’s vital statistics are, well, huge.

Transbay Tower, SF. The 1,200 foot tall obelisk-shaped Transbay Tower is set to joint the Transamerica Building and the Golden Gate Bridge as one of the most iconic structures in San Francisco.

CH2, Melbourne. Located in the center of Melbourne, the 10 storey Council House 2 aka CH2 is a United Nations award-winning building with sustainable design and energy efficiency at heart.

30 The Bond, Sydney. 30 The Bond has achieved a 5 star ABGR rating (the equivalent of Gold LEED) by using chilled beans for cooling, individually operated external shades to manage heat and solar gain, wintergarden rooms and rooftop gardens with drought resistant plants that increase biodiversity.

Cor, Miami. If ever there was an example of strikingly beautiful sustainable architectural design, this is it! Cor is a mixed use 25 storey tower in Miami’s design district costing $25 million to build and due for completion in 2009.

BMW Welt, Munich.The BMW Welt in Munich is one of the finest examples to date of German engineering at it’s best.

DuBiotech, Dubai. Set amidst the skyscraper-sprawl that is modern Dubai, the new 22 storey headquarters of DuBiotech will be one of the largest green buildings on earth at 60,000 square foot when completed in 2009.

Clinton Presidential Library, Little Rock. The Clinton Presidential Library and Museum in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Ecopolis Cidade Flutuante, Oceano. Projetada para 50.000 refugiados afetados pelo aumento do nível do oceano.

Hearst Tower, New York. Primeiro Prédio a obter certificação ambiental – fundação 2006.

Swissre Tower, Londres. O edifício utiliza 50% menos energia que outros do mesmo tamanho.

The Green Building, África do Sul. Construído em 2003 com blocos de concreto reciclado e Madeira de áreas de reflorestamento.

Prédio da Petrobras em Vitória. A Petrobras está investindo R$ 486 milhões na construção de um edifício sustentável em Vitória, no Espírito Santo, que abrigará sua sede no estado.

Anara Tower, Dubai. O grande diferencial do projeto é a turbina instalada a mais de 400 metros de altura que gera energia suficiente para tornar o arranha-céu além de uma obra de arte, um edifício sustentável.
Dynamic Tower, Dubai é o nome do edifício que está a ser projetado pelo arquiteto italiano David Fischer, que tem a particularidade de ser totalmente pré-fabricado, rotativo e que produz a sua própria eletricidade através de turbinas eólicas. A Rotating Tower é “amiga do ambiente” uma vez que é o primeiro edifício a produzir totalmente a sua própria energia elétrica, através de turbinas eólicas instaladas entre cada andar. Desta forma, no edifício de 80 andares estarão incorporadas 79 turbinas eólicas.
Arquitetura sustentável na Malásia. Arquitetura bioclimática e sustentável. Oito edifícios irão prolongar a frente urbana de Putrajaya, zona situada 30 Km ao Sul da capital Kuala Lumpur e conhecida como Precinct 4.
