Greenway Self-Park / HOK

These are some beautiful wind turbines seen @archdaly there even better than the wire mesh ones made by the same company Greenway Self-Park / HOK

?? John Picken

HOK has infused green strategies into ???s Greenway Self-Park facility ??? a not so typical place to find sustainable ideas.   While the 11 story energy efficient parking garage features a naturally ventilated exterior wall, a cistern rain water collection system, a green roof, and electric car plug-in stations, we can???t get over the dozen wind turbines made by Helix Wind that attach to the external structure.

More about the self-park and more images after the break.

The vertical turbines are located on the southwest corner of the garage to take full advantage of ???s summer winds.  The turbines will harvest the wind to power the exterior wall lighting of the facility, as well as contribute excess power to the city grid.

The glazed screen, which is comprised of a visually layered fabric of breathable glass channels, shows the inner function of the building.  The building will be topped with a green roof.

This structure, which is the first of its kind in , is currently pursuing LEED Certification.

BusStopSymbiosis / LIKEarchitects

Photographs by Dinis Sottomayor, Diogo Aguiar, Teresa Otto, Manuel Magalh??es and OPOLab

LIKEarchitects shared with us their project BusStopSymbiosis. This project is one of the five artistic interventions selected by Scott Burnham to emerge in downtown as part of the event Bairro Criativo* launched by ADDICT on 24 May 2010. It was awarded with the first prize. Competitors were asked to think of temporary structures for the public space aiming to improve people???s daily life in the city. See more images and architect???s description after the break.

BusStopSymbiosis is as urban happening were a temporary strange and colourful installation lives on an ordinary bus stop creating a relationship beneficial for both structures. It???s a new urban equipment that aims not only to increase the sitting space of the existing bus stop, but also to entertain those who are still waiting for their transportation as well those who are just walking nearby.

Being totally digitally conceived and produced using computer-numerically controlled cutting (CNC) processes on the OPO???Lab Fab???Lab, the 95 geometrically variable components were completely fabricated within few days. Looking like a red LochNess monster BusStopSymbiosis created general admiration, surprise and curiosity during its week lifetime. Is it a bench? Is it a piece of art? Is it a huge magazine rack? Some national televisions were on site to record the moment.
