+++ PLEASE CREDIT CONSTRUCTION UPDATES AND PICTURES +++

Please credit construction updates you found on the internet people! A lot of you people out there think that you only have to credit pictures in the photoforums so fail to credit pictures in this section.

You probably realized what happened recently, Flickr blocked skyscrapercity which means that pictures from Flickr don't display on our forum anymore and you all know how many members use Flickr to find construction updates and so on. So this is pretty much like a disaster for our forum. I know most people don't pay attention to announcements so that's why I created this sticky thread.

We can make this go away if we credit all pictures and pictures you forgot to credit in the past. Respect people's copyright and link back to Flickr.com.

ALSO for people who are posting their own construction updates in this forum but uploaded their pictures via Flickr, please link back!

so PLEASE CREDIT PICTURES!

HOW TO:




Thank you,
The WDN Mod Squad.

The site at Montanhana would enjoy demand from both business and holiday travellers.

Seven hectares have been made available for the development of a five-star hotel, possibly with a casino and chalets. The site is conveniently situated near the sea with its own private beach.

Approximately 10 hectares have been allocated for the development of shopping / convenience centre/s in the Southwestern corner of the Montanhana Golf & Marine Estate.

Various large firms, supermarket chains & bank groups have indicated that they will sign long term lease agreements if a shopping centre & office space/s are available to rent.

In addition, space will be made available for offices and other commercial developments to service the growing local community as well as Maputo.

US Embassy Maputo

Architects: Allied Works Architecture
Location: Maputo, Mozambique
Project Team: KPFF Consulting Engineers, Interface Engineering, Schnabel Engineering, Hinman Engineering, AECOM, PMSI, Cerami, Hopkins Food service
Photographer: Allied Works Architecture
Project Scope: Masterplanning, Site Design, Complete Architecture Services and Interior Design

Article by Karanja Samuel/Archidatum.com
Realizing a design that incorporates security while ensuring transparency can be a hard nut to crack. However, the new US Embassy design embraces a concept
that comprises an intricate interlacing of weaving, screening and revealing. The perceptual sense of safety granted to embassy habitats is surreptitiously
provided through the choice of walling materials (a series of site-cast concrete walls) and a physical presence of Marine Security Guard accommodation.
Ingeniously, this factor (safety) does not entirely dominate the project. Transparency does.

Situated on a 10-acre piece of land in the capital city of Maputo, within a site of hills and coastal dunes along the Indian Ocean, the project rises. The
landscape it sits on cannot be disparaged. Water; hills; natural vegetation…. Generic natural beauty thus takes the centre stage in the design quest. It is only
fair then for the building to respond to such praiseworthy character which it gracefully does through gracious spatial disposition and form making. A perception
of openness within the site thrives. Carefully, the building masses are arranged to meander in the landscape. This consequently, controls light, air and views
towards the bejeweled sceneries.

Comprising a main chancery building, facilities for the Embassy community, accommodation for Marine Security Guard and service buildings, the project offers
spaces for working, living and representational events. The chancery consists of three interlinked volumes. Oriented North-South, these volumes are shrewdly
merged at opposing ends to create interior connections between general work areas as well as defining exterior spaces. Visitors are given a sense of
orientation through a series of wood clad volumes which run through the building’s interior from East to West and from floor to floor. Primary social functions
are also housed in these volumes.

The presence of the Embassy is enhanced by the series of concrete walls that wind through the site, defining the exterior spaces and setting the building’s
location. These walls have intricately done apertures that provide adequate lighting and outside views while ensuring that direct sunlight is cut off.
