Конкурс журнала Металлы в строительстве, 2016

Журнал Металлы в строительстве объявил конкурс для архитекторов, инженеров, студентов, дизайнеров и не только со всех уголков мира. Конкурсанты должны представить свое видение реконструкции небоскрёба 200-Парк-Авеню, построенного полвека назад, как самое большое в мире офисное здание — Панамериканской башни (ныне здание Метлайф).

дедлайн: 1 февраля 2016   |   подробнее

Цель конкурса — переосмыслить этот нью-йоркский символ с точки зрения ресурсосбережения, использования экологичных материалов фасада, которые создадут высокоэффективную поверхность, обладающую лёгкостью и прозрачностью, достигающей сегодняшних экологических требований к зданиям при одновременном сохранении и повышении эстетической привлекательности объекта архитектурного наследия. Уже сейчас конкурсанты могут Зарегистрироваться на сайте конкурса, www.metalsinconstruction.org, срок окончательного представления проектов — 1 февраля 2016.

Metals in Construction magazine 2016 Design Challenge

Submit: Monday, February 01, 2016

Recent advances in material technology and parametric design have given architects freedom to create exteriors of almost limitless variation. As a result, the enclosure has become a transformational building element, where recladding a building can give it a new visual identity and radically improve its energy performance in the process. Yet when a project involves recladding one of a city’s most recognized landmarks, preservation often comes at the expense of innovation. Preserving the original identity—not altering it—is foremost in the minds of designers.

Design Challenge: Reimagining 200 Park Avenue

Metals in Construction magazine is pleased to invite architects, engineers, students, designers, and others from all over the world to submit their vision for recladding this New York City icon with a resource-conserving, eco-friendly enclosure—one that creates a highly efficient envelope with the lightness and transparency sought by today’s office workforce while preserving and enhancing the aesthetic of its heritage.

Built a half-century ago as the world’s largest corporate structure, the Pan Am Building (now the MetLife Building) at 200 Park Avenue in New York City initially enjoyed little praise in the architectural press. Critics found the massive brutalist structure an assault on Grand Central Terminal and an obstruction to views up and down Park Avenue. Despite this controversial beginning, the building today is firmly in the grip of nostalgia, its location atop a rail hub now the model of urban efficiency and its facade one of the most recognizable in the city. Given this legacy, it is almost understandable that, when a 2001 investigation revealed age-related defects in the facade, the principal objective was to restore it to sound condition. At the time, there was no inclination to alter its widely familiar appearance in order to harness the latest technological advances. But with the call for global energy reduction driving the Architecture 2030 Challenge, a more compelling case for this type of alteration exists today. The goal of the design challenge is to use this well-known Park Avenue landmark to explore the possibilities for such alteration and the potential impact on both energy use and architectural legacy.

Specific Design Guidelines

Submittals must address the recladding of all exterior wall components of 200 Park Avenue in New York City to reduce the building’s energy consumption. This is an ideas competition, so you are not required to produce exact working drawings, just evocative visualizations.

  • The design must demonstrate an understanding of sustainability as well as desirable daylighting and creature comforts for modern, Class A office space.
  • In addition to aesthetics, participants should take into consideration local climate, neighboring buildings, city requirements, efficiency of materials, new technologies, functionality, existing tenancies, and overall constructability.
  • In addition to conceptual visualizations, design teams must communicate the functionality of their approach to the envelope design by conducting standard analyses of energy performance.

Building Data

For the purposes of this design challenge, the dimensions of 200 Park Avenue shall be as follows:

Construction Type: Steel frame with
concrete panelized exteriors
Building height: 808 feet
Number of Stories: 58
Building Area: 3,000,000 square feet
Number of Stories (Podium):  8
Number of Stories (Tower): 50
Typical Podium Floor Area: 90,000 square feet
Typical Tower Floor Area: 40,000 square feet
Typical Story Height: 13 feet, 6 inches

Prizes

One grand prize of $15,000 to be awarded at a half-day conference at The TimesCenter in New York City on February 26, 2016. Along with the winner, up to 15 honorable mentions will be chosen for exhibition at the conference. The winner and the top five finalists will also be published in Metals in Construction magazine and its digital platforms.
