I reckon, that's a really innovative design. I love it!

Here is a full set of images, plans and diagrams of the giant RAK Convention and Exhibition Centre for the new city at Ras Al Khaimah in the United Arab Emirates

Designed by Rem Koolhaas and Reinier de Graaf of Office for Metropolitan Architecture and looking like the Death Star, the centre consists of a spherical glass and steel nest and a very long, low building raised off the ground.


Project: RAK Convention and Exhibition Centre
Status: Concept
Client: Rakeen Development
Location: Ras Al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates
Budget: N/A
Site: Gateway City, Ras Al Khaimah, UAE
Program: Mixed Use: Convention and Exhibition Centre, Hotels, Offices, Residential, Shopping, Restaurants
A low-rise building adjacent to the sphere `hovers` above the ground beside the exhibtion centre, retail and additional hotel rooms.



So far the 21st century – in a desperate effort to differentiate one building from the next – has been characterized by a manic production of extravagant shapes. Paradoxically, the result is a surprisingly monotonous urban substance, where any attempt at ‘difference’ is instantly neutralized in a sea of meaningless architectural gestures.


RAK is confronted with an important choice: Does it join so many others in this mad, futile race or does it become the first to offer a new credibility?


This project represents a final attempt at distinction through architecture:not through the creation of the next bizarre image, but through a return to pure form.


Invented long ago, both the sphere and the bar explicitly abandon claims to formal invention or ‘originality’. (The sphere even existed before man itself…) Yet both geometries still continue to feed the architectural imagination: perfectly autonomous shapes, within their bounds the promise of a perfect world – made possible only by the seamless integration of engineering.

15 years to complete RM18b Penang City Centre

By DAVID TAN

BUTTERWORTH: The RM18bil Penang City Centre (PCC) project by Abad Naluri Sdn Bhd, an associate company of Equine Capital Bhd, will take 15 years to complete.

Equine holds a 25% stake in Abad Naluri, which is developing PCC on the 260-acre site where the Penang Turf Club is presently located.

The PCC is one of the projects highlighted in the Northern Corridor Economic Region (NCER) blueprint.

Equine executive chairman Datuk Patrick Lim said two award-winning architects, one each from New York and Paris, would design the project.

“Hani Rashid from Asymptote Architecture in New York will design the architecture, which includes two iconic towers, while Nasrine Seraji from Atelier Seraji in Paris will design the master plan,” he told reporters after the launch of the NCER Penang portion blueprint by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi yesterday.

Lim said the PCC master plan would be unveiled in September while the project would be launched in eight to 12 months.

The first phase would involve the development of a 26-acre park, and road infrastructure to smoothen the traffic flow for the project, he said.

“The park will be connected to the Botanical Garden. We will use the technologies such as thermal treatment, to develop PCC into a carbon-free city,” he said.

“We want to make PCC the first such city in the world. Shanghai is planning to be carbon free, but we are ready to implement the technologies to make it happen in PCC soon.”

Lim said the PCC project would have two five-star hotels, commercial and residential properties, and a state-of-the-art cultural centre.

Lim said there were many options to fund the project, including joint ventures and issuing capital bonds.

“We are also applying for MSC status to attract information and communications technology companies to set up regional offices at the park.”

On the Penang International Equestrian Centre in Batu Kawan, Lim said Abad Naluri would start work on the centre once construction work commenced on the second Penang bridge.

The city of Putrajaya is the new administrative capital of Malaysia, a few miles South of Kuala Lumpur. The new city is based on a system of connected islands created by overflowing a very large plantation of oil palms. The Public Administration buildings are in the centre of the islands, the residential units face the water. The main residential complex is conceived like a fleet of majestic Sail-Boats floating in the lagoon. The rib-like structural system forms the outer skin of the Sail-Boats and gives an important contribution to shadow the inner spaces of the various apartments without interfering with the view of the artificially created lagoon. All the apartments face the opposite sides of the Sail-Buildings as to create bilateral ventilation, with positive bioclimatic effects.

That looks like Renzo Piano's work in New Caledonia.
