Vienne: 2 faces contrastées pour une barre de logements au plus près du métro aérien
Le Moniteur    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
L'agence Artec a imaginé un immeuble de logements intergénérationnels, aux 2 faces très contrastées. Il est situé dans la banlieue viennoise de Stadlau, sur une parcelle de terrain longeant un virage de la ligne de métro U2. Il s'agissait ici pour le cabinet d'architectes Artec de lutter au nord contre les nuisances liées au passage de la ligne aérienne U2 au plus près du bâtiment. Mais le challenge était aussi d'exploiter au mieux, à l'extérieur comme à l'intérieur, la lumière et la vue côté campagne au sud. More

Le laser révolutionne l'architecture
Lexpress.mu    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Utilisée depuis l'Antiquité, surtout dans le domaine militaire, la rétroingénierie a pendant longtemps été pratiquée de manière très conventionnelle, reposant uniquement sur l'expertise humaine et plus tard sur le principe de la photogrammétrie. Celle-ci permet de reconstituer une copie 3D conforme à la réalité grâce à l'assemblage d'une multitude de photos prises sous tous les angles possibles. La toute dernière technologie, en matière de rétroingénierie, est la lasergrammétrie. More
