These architectural marvels will turn a lot of heads in the next decade
Structures like Opera House, Golden Gate Bridge, Lotus Temple, etc, have been termed as some of the most unique and exquisite architectures developed by humans. But would you believe if we said that the development of those structures was just the beginning?
Experts at Janaharsha Estates N Constructions list some of the most jaw-dropping and surreal proposed ideas floating in the global markets:
The concept came into being after NEXT Architects initiated the development of a swirling bridge over the Dragon King Harbour River in Changsha, China. The bridge is a three-lane marvel that will be used as a pedestrian crossover above the river, providing a picturesque view of Hunan’s capital.
Green Power Plants
As the name suggests, this refers to an environmental makeover of power plants. AZPA, an architecture firm, is planning to convert Germany’s Wedel Vattenfall power plant into a modified industrial complex. The walls, basically the entire exterior, would be covered with plants and creeps. This will serve the dual purpose of controlling rising CO2 levels and make it look attractive.
This concept features Hy-Fi, the winner of Young Architect Program’s 15th edition. As reported by Arch Daily, it is built by stacking two different types of brick and yet, the design is made of purely organic material. While Ecovative-manufactured bricks are made of corn stalks and unique living roots, reflective bricks fulfill the organic, yet style criteria of the structure. After it is successfully made, it is expected to offer approximately zero carbon emissions.
An architectural genius in itself, the concept was brought to life by Michael Hansmeyer and Benjamin Dillenburger. The duo used ornaments and painted a room in 3-D which looked like a church on completion. “Digital Grotesque is between chaos and order, both natural and the artificial, neither foreign nor familiar. Any references to nature or existing styles are not integrated into the design process, but are evoked only as associations in the eye of the beholder,” stated their website.
As unique as it sounds, the concept showcases the merger of technology and architecture. It is called invisible because the system used in the structure will constantly receive real-time images on the surface and thus, would diminish the boundary line between the structure and its background.
C.F. Møller Architects and DinnellJohansson are currently in-process of designing a rendered design for world’s tallest wooden skyscraper. Why is it so fascinating? It features 34 floors built on top the other in a staircase-like style. The architecture duo will propose three alternatives for the structure as only one design will be approved to be built for Stockholm’s city center in 2023.
