A perfect example of good architecture not in a building:: Zaha Hadid Designs a Superyacht for shipbuilding company Blohm+Voss, reaching 128 meters in length, and a supporting structure resembling the organic ecosystem below. The form appears dynamic, resembling the flow of water. Paired with the clear, clean, and white coated aesthetics, this yacht fits right in with the water in which it glides across.

This sculptural facade also doubles as an air-cleaning cladding. The tiles are produced by Elegant Embellishments (called the Prosolve 370e). They are lightweight, thermoformed plastic tiles coated in powdered, photocatalytic titanium dioxide (TiO2) which scrubs pollution from the air. #facade #material #pollution

A cocoon-like temporary summer pavilion in Saarbrücken, Germany, is the result of a research project on biomimicry conducted at the city’s architecture school. Biomimicry, a design approach that takes nature as its guiding principle, is the specialism of Professor Göran Pohl, who headed the BOWOOSS research project.
