Sustainable data centers and Cincinnati starchitecture
September 11, 2015
This Friday we’re highlighting compelling work in the built environment, from Arup and beyond.
1. Architect Magazine lists the elusive sustainable data center as an emerging building type to master, while the demand for more computing power poses a challenge to LEED certification.
2. The New York Times Magazine profiles the University of Cincinnati as an exemplar of expensive, unusual buildings designed by “starchitects,” which raise the profile of college campuses yet potentially destroy a sense of place.
3. The Los Angeles Times spoke with Arup’s Jon Phillips about his panoramic view of California’s economy as part of a feature article on the state’s boom-and-bust history and its current momentum.
4. designboom takes a look at OMA + OLIN’s winning design for Washington DC’s first elevated park, which will transform a freeway bridge over the Anacostia River into an engaging civic space.
5. ArchDaily details the newly opened Broad Museum. Shaped by the interior vault, the porous veil structure provides filtered daylight for over 2,000 works from the Broad Art Foundation and the family’s personal collection.
