  • net zero

Ideas:

  • open space, leverage natural light & ventilation as much as possible
  • have at least 2 floors = efficient use of space
  • water conservation, water walls for isolation? --> apparent use of water
  • biomimicry: honeycomb, snowflakeor inspiration from biological systems such as the eye --> shape, shading...

(Biomimicry: 3 types --> organism level, behavior level, ecosystem level)

Design Inspirations from museums/auditoriums/exhibition centers

2 auditoriums that I like because of how they leverage natural lights + how they're on 2 different levels and have nice perspectives from the top to the center of the auditorium

Fondation Louis Vuitton

I like the shape of the building, but it creates too much complexity (I felt lost in the building), which is not something I want in my exhibition center

Simple materials give simplicity compared to shape of the building

Centre Pompidou/Beauboug, Paris

Apparent MEP systems and structure, a lot of windows for natural light but design purpose too > interesting

image

Louvres, Paris

Again, interesting to see how natural light penetrates the building from above and how it impacts structural engineering

I like the open space, and the different levels and stairs linking spaces together

Apparent "core/center" of the building/eye:

naturally ventilated shaft
elevator
MEP systems
natural light well

Leverage South-facing facade especially with concrete mass in the back (trombe wall, water wall)

Auditorium at my school in France, I like the shape and how natural light is leveraged, how it links 2 levels together

image

Renderings before construction look better in terms of natural light

image

What I like is its big open spaces, how it integrates indoors and outdoor spaces and leverages natural light very well

image
image

Here natural light is provided on the side and bottom, not on top, but it seems to be for music purposes more than presentations that would require a screen/slideshow?

image

Grand Palais, Paris

Idea to bring natural light from top of the building, in a curve-shaped building

Interesting to think through how it impacts the structure of the building
