The vision for Trinity at Alkimos is intimate and more people-focused rather than being enormous and anonymous. Contemporary and diverse, rather than suburban and bland.

There will be a blend of housing and homesite sizes Types to cater for individuals at all stages of their lives, for individuals, couples or families that are growing as well as retirees. Styles are suggested by the design principles of Trinity and materials which complement the environment. The Valley Village is the first village to be opened at Trinity.

The likelihood of of offering new small scale youth housing within the existing urban framework by “re-activating”€ the in-between spaces in the large scale housing places in the metropolis.

Constitution Square Warsaw

May 19, 2017 Donna Evans 0

As an effect of the Treaty of Versailles (1918), Warsaw was re-established as the capital city of the current Polish nation-state. Styles selected for public and private commissions during the 1920s and 1930s range from historical to avant garde. The devastating impact of WW II on Warsaw means Warsaw is in large measure a city that is postwar as an estimated 85% of the city was destroyed. The rebuilding efforts encompassed both new construction and historical reconstruction. The architectural endeavors of the Socialist Realist period (1949-1956) provide powerful examples of architecture serving the state-imposed cultural policy first developed in the Soviet Union and after executed across the Eastern Bloc. Constitution Square is unique among Warsaw’s many squares in that its

Yellow Revolution

January 4, 2017 Donna Evans 0

The Green Revolution of the 1950s was an anthropocentric approach to dialogue with all the environment. The Yellow Revolution must be a request for cooperation to nature from a new perception, a humble approach, understanding its processes and making our needs harmonious with them through technology and preparation. Our challenge is highlighted by the Yellow Revolution as landscapers on the scale of the urban landscape as agents of change that redefine the design procedure of urban systems. These need to be transformed into integrated systems in the landscape, they can’t remain a being object in the centre of the land, a parasite of these landscapes. The thing-city formed by disconnected bits must be transformed into an integral system of systems

Urban Landscape

December 4, 2016 Donna Evans 0

Urban ecosystems are towns, the cities, and the urban strips or greenery built to link people to the natural environment. This can be the increase in the population that is urban as well as the supporting built infrastructure has changed on both urban surroundings as well as places which encompass areas that are urban. Included in these are semi or ‘peri-urban’ settings that fringe cities in addition to natural and agricultural landscapes. The urban landscape can be viewed both as a series of structures and edifices more or less organised by human action and as a panorama of social and cultural histories framing our present and inscribing our past. Seen in this way, ‘….the conurbation becomes one huge archaeological site

3D Printing in Real-World Architectural Design

October 8, 2016 Donna Evans 0

With the advent of 3D printing traditional architectural model-making is becoming a thing of the past. 3D Printers allow a digital design to be easily created as a 3D printed object with complex shapes by layering extruded plastic from a heated print head based on computer instructions. All of 3D printing technologies rely on additive manufacturing, which builds up objects layer by layer, replicating cross-sections of a digital model. The big advantage for architects is the capacity to simply translate the digital design directly into an object via an automated process, allowing reprinting successive refinements at will. The model can be sliced and diced digitally an only various parts printed which allowing for example cross-sections and components to be made
