This Organic Skyscraper Is Designed To Literally Grow As Its Residents Recycle

The architecture giants at Agence Chartier Corbasson have imagined a design feat worthy of a green future.

Their new, London-based conceptual project, “Organic Skyscraper,” proposes a high-rise building built from the recycled materials of its residents. The building would essentially “grow” vertically as inhabitants discarded waste like plastic bottles and paper, their garbage turning into insulated panels for floors to come.

ARBORESCENT
[adjective]
1. having the size, form, or characteristics of a tree; treelike.
2. a term used by the French thinkers Deleuze and Guattari to characterise thinking marked by insistence on totalising principles, binarism and dualism. The term, first used in A Thousand Plateaus (1980) where it was opposed to the rhizome, comes from the way genealogy trees are drawn: unidirectional progress, with no possible retroactivity and continuous binary cuts (thus enforcing a dualist metaphysical conception, criticised by Deleuze).
Etymology: from Latin arborēscēns, present active participle of arborēscō, “become a tree”.

Burning Ice

The earth has been shaped, both physically and socially, by a striking landscape carved out by glaciers. However, with the acceleration of global climate change, these glaciers are shrinking at a rapid pace, causing environmental and social upheaval. It is the shrinking borders of glaciers — and the forces causing this change — that I am focusing on in this body of work.

This series consists of a graphite renderings of satellite imagery of Icelandic glaciers and mountain-top removal sites in West Virginia. The creation of these works was funded in part by a Puffin Foundation grant, and completed at Nes Artist Residency in Skagaströnd, Iceland, summer 2013.

The drawings are also published in a short book, Burning Iceavailable online.

 Nicole Dextras freezes garments in solid blocks of ice

using ice as both her photographic and sculptural medium, environmental artist nicole dextras freezes garments of varying season, texture, and fabric in frosted volumes, highlighting the wardrobe’s skeletal qualities. the series that makes up ‘castaways’ has been captured on toronto island, a small community celebrated for its beach and amusement park open during the warm months, while the winter period leaves the town somewhat devoid of its usual summertime energy. with this in mind, dextras imagines the apparel representing the spirits of the theme park frozen in time, out of season, waiting for the great melt. the ephemeral nature of the urban sculptural installations invite the viewer to construct their own narrative as the artist explains, ‘like an isolated silent film still, they exist only for a moment and then the movie continues on.’

Carlos Amorales Creates Swirling Clouds of Darkness With Black Paper Moths

designed-for-life:

Black Cloud is an installation by Mexican artist Carlos Amorales involving 30,000 black paper months (each a replica of one of 36 different species) floating effortlessly across the walls in various patterns and clusters.

Individually, the paper moths are beautiful, elegant, and benign, but when clustered together in such large groups, they take on a more ominous quality.
