How to Build the Next Award-Winning Building

What are architects doing to keep things interesting?

Motivation For Designers And Builders. It has long been a question asked by the wider world when it comes to newly designed building projects. Wider society will always question whether or not the building has been designed for a purpose or whether it is simply there for aesthetic reasons and to win the designer and builder an award. It must be said that a lot of this comes down to those who work with graphics as well as the architects. I mean let’s face it, I’ve never seen an “artist’s impression” of something that hasn’t looked a million dollars, have you? There are many methods that architects use in order to design buildings. Although they will work broadly to a brief they have been provided by those who will ultimately commission the project, there are usually other variables to consider. Many businesses in the modern world are looking to build sustainable buildings in order to prove their green credentials and build their credibility both to governments and to the wider public across the globe. Businesses also ask for eye catching, memorable buildings to be built in order for people to remember that they’re based there. That can go one of two ways, however.

We all know that Number. One Canary Wharf is known colloquially as HSBC tower, but who knows who is based in “the gherkin”? Modern Techniques As architects are briefed to create sustainable buildings, many of them implement cable structures within a design in order to create an eye catching, memorable centrepiece to a building’s design and ultimately it’s construction. A cable structure is essentially what it says on the tin. A fixed structure which uses cables and tension in order to form part of a buildings structure. For example, cable structures may be used at fixed points of a building in order to form part of the roof. This technique is perhaps most famous for being used at sports stadiums, where cable structures allow for an eye catching roof which almost always becomes what the stadium is famous for.

Winning Awards. Ultimately as society and attitudes towards environment and sustainable living change, there will also be changes in the criteria for winning awards. Although an eye catching building will still rank highly, other considerations such as the long term sustainability of the building and the economic feasibility of building the structure are playing larger and larger roles in the thinking of architects and designers across the world.
