“The architect and open source design advocate Daniel Dendra talks at Ecosummit 2011 about the need to share design and architecture know-how globally using the power of the Internet to accelerate the smart green transformation of the built environment. Daniel is founding partner of OpenSimSim and anOtherArchitect. I like Daniel’s ideas as I am currently thinking about a new Internet platform for prefab build-to-order smart green buildings. Reusing the best ideas for cost-efficient smart green buildings while integrating the best materials, designs and appliances – that’s a powerful vision.”
At the moment we are finalizing our urban study on the city of Pereslavl in Russia. On our last study trip to the city we took a lot of pictures in and around the city with the iconic lake. We published the most impressive images on our flickr account:
The TEDx program is not yet three years old, but we are already celebrating a major milestone: our 10,000th TEDxTalk. These talks come from over 2,600 independently organized events held in 115 different countries and 39 different languages. They have been viewed over 18 million times, with many…
Congratulations to TEDx! After speaking at the TEDx event in Berlin last year we are proud to be design partners of this years TEDx in Hamburg and Berlin. I guess there is still tickets for the upcoming event on the 21st of November in Berlin:
In October 2011 at the International Tourism Forum in Yaroslavl anOtherArchitect together with it´s Russian partner TDI (Territory Development Institute) were presenting a conceptual study on the city of Pereslavl-Zalessky. The study was commissioned by Rusresorts and Corporation of Development “Golden Ring”.
In early December 2011 the final study will be released and available for download on the website of RusResort : http://rusresorts.com/
Today we are not only celebrating the re-unifaction day in Germany but it is also the international day of architecture by the International Union of Architects (UIA). Not sure if it is pure accident that this two celebration fall on the same day. Either it´s ironic or there is a hidden link between the two subjects ;)
Nevertheless it was nice to receive this card from the Russian National Museum of Architecture (A.V. Shusev - MUAR) with portraits of a lot of famous architects ;)
Try to find anOtherArchitect …. ;)
Hint: draw an imaginary line between Frank O. Gehry, Oscar Niemeyer and Lebbeus Woods. Right next to Sergei Tchoban.
I hope this was not already my 15min of fame. Happy celebrations (for whatever reason you do it today) !!!
COPENHAGEN LECTURE - SAXO BANK invited by Martin Professional
At a recent lecture about the potential of interactive and dynamic lighting in cities I was showing also the example above. Doing some more research on the topic I found this interesting interview with Golan Levin and Zach Lieberman (creator of night lights).
The Art of Coding, The Coding of Art is definitely an interesting read …
anOtherArchitect : Daniel Dendra is talking at the 100th anniversary of the national Association of norwegian Architects (NAL) symposium in Oslo.
“The world is changing. Yesterday’s models are no longer rele- vant for today. We must all remain open to new methods and approaches to creating architecture, and we need to continue to draw upon each others experiences. this year’s architecture Conference is focusing on participation, communication and exchange in architecture.
NaL have invited a number of leading architects, reseachers and writers, who’s work has, in different ways, challenged the boundaries of architectural practice, both in relation to how we create architecture, and how we communicate architecture in a wider social context.
Welcome to 2011’s Architecture Conference, and the opening of the festival week in the Year of Architecture which celebrates the 100th anniversary of the national Association of norwegian Architects.”
The last months we were pretty busy and completely forgot to announce officially our new address. Our studio is now at
Goethe Str. 2-3 (Aufgang B - 4th floor) in 10623 Berlin Charlottenburg.
The diagrams above show the time you need to reach our studio by public transport within 15 / 20 / 30 and 45min. This analysis is based on a great new online analysis tool called Mapnificient by a young Berlin based developer.
Our closest public transport stations are:
U9 + trains | Berlin Zoo(logischer Garten)
U12 | Ernst-Reuter-Platz
S-Bahn | Savignyplatz
