BIG_Zira_Island_03.jpg Central Asia’s first Carbon Neutral Master Plan in Azerbaijan.

Zira Zero Island is a 1.000.000 m2 master plan for a carbon neutral resort and residential development on Zira Island located along the Caspian Sea. As a young post-soviet democracy, Azerbaijan is rediscovering its national identity by imagining Zira Island as an architectural landscape based upon the country’s dramatic natural setting. Located within the crescent shaped bay of the capital city Baku, Zira Island includes the Seven Peaks of Azerbaijan which is envisioned by its designers BIG Architects and the engineers Ramboll to be a sustainable model for urban development, and an iconographic skyline recognizable from the city’s coastline.

One of the largest institutions dedicated to Architecture celebrates its twentieth anniversary.

The CCA is an international research centre and museum founded on the conviction that architecture is a public concern. Over the years it has increased public awareness of the role of architecture in society, promoted scholarly research in the field, and stimulated innovation in design practice. The CCA has become a leading voice in advancing knowledge, promoting public understanding, and widening thought and debate on the art of architecture, its history, theory, practice, and role in society today.

Zaha Hadid to design new Port House Print E-mail
Wednesday, 21 January 2009 18:00

Port_House_Antwerp_02.jpg The future headquarters of Antwerp Port Authority will be designed by the London firm of Zaha Hadid Architects. The choice of architect was made at the Port Authority board meeting on 13 January. The new Port House will occupy the site of the technical services building on quay 63.

The Port Authority aims to make its operations more efficient by centralising the administrative and technical services which are now divided between the Port House and quay 63.

The new headquarters will also solve the pressing shortage of workspace in the present Port House on the Entrepot quay. Some 500 people will be able to move into the new building when it is completed in 2013.

Global Expertise and Sustainable Framework to Guide Expansion of Vietnam's Capital Print E-mail
Thursday, 15 January 2009 02:53


Following a review of 21 international competitors, the government of Vietnam selected a team comprising Perkins Eastman and two leading Korean firms—Posco E&C, and Jina Architects Co., Ltd.—to develop a master plan for Greater Hanoi. The plan will set the development guidelines for the entire 3,300 square km Capital Region.

Among the themes discussed in team presentation were: preserving the City’s historic core and its 1,000-year old architectural legacy; the projected growth of the City from its current population of just over six million to more than 10 million inhabitants by 2030; and the need to channel the expected growth into several satellite cities linked by new transit systems connecting each to the historic City core. Additionally, Hanoi is situated in one of the richest and fertile areas in the world. The team suggested a strategy for preserving more than 40 percent of the area for natural preserves, recreational space and agricultural uses while positioning Hanoi as a model for responsible, sustainably driven urban development.
