Transcript

  • 1. Yas Hotel,Abu Dhabi
  • 2. Yas Island Benoy , firm of award-winning architects and planners, designed a concept masterplan for one of the world’s largest and most prestigious mixed-use destinations, Yas Island in Abu Dhabi.
  • 3. The aim for this scheme was to transform 75km² of desert into a veritable leisure oasis. The entire development is roughly one third of the size of Abu Dhabi Island and features a beach front shoreline of approximately 32km.
  • 4. Asymptote Architects designed Yas Hotel, The principal architects of Asymptote were Hani Rashid + Lise Anne Couture Asymptote envisioned an architectural landmark embodying various key influences: •aesthetics and forms associated with speed •movement and spectacle to the artistry •geometries forming the basis of ancient Islamic art and craft traditions.
  • 5. OVER VIEW •First hotel to span a Formula 1 racetrack, completed for Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2009. •Grid-shell façade features 5,000 individually-lit angled glass panels. •Doubly-curved 40m bridge on two levels enclosing 980m2 interior space
  • 6. The first hotel in the world to have a Formula 1 race circuit built around it.
  • 7. The entire jewel-like composition of the project responds visually and tectonically to its environment to create a distinct and powerful sense of place as well as a breathtaking backdrop to the Formula 1 and other events that the building will celebrate.
  • 8. A bridge stretches between the main building and the Marina Tower, enclosing a bar and a restaurant The skin of the gridshell comprises approximately 5,000 diamond-shaped glass panels, varying in size.
  • 9. Of architectural and engineering significance is the main feature of the project’s design, a 217meter expanse of sweeping, curvilinear forms constructed of steel and 5,800 pivoting diamond-shaped glass panels.
  • 10. The Grid-Shell visually connects and fuses the entire complex together while producing optical effects and spectral reflections that play against the surrounding sky, sea and desert landscape.
  • 11. STEEL-GLASS STRUCTURES The Roof rests on only a few V-shaped supports, even though it consists of 2,800 tonnes of steel and 5,100 glass panels. To produce this delicate appearance, each of the 10,700 individual rods had to be as thin as possible
  • 12. BIGGEST LED PROJECT It was the world’s biggest LED project, to date, controlled through RDM (Remote Device Management) protocol by an advanced lighting control solution. The curvilinear grid-shell covered with over 5,300 diamondshaped steel panels, containing nearly 5000 RGBW LED fixtures. Featuring programmed lighting and media sequences that fuse the two sections that span both the circuit and marina.
  • 13. Lighting show on the grid-shell can be controlled directly from the control room through a touch-screen monitor, while videos can be uploaded via Internet. LED temperature is monitored through a special heat sensor that sends this data to the control system via RDM, which in turn needs to adjust the intensity to avoid damages of LEDs, fixtures or their drivers.
  • 14. The desert climate of Abu Dhabi can reach 60°C in the summertime which creates a big challenge for any type of lighting source, thus, real-time adjustment of LEDs intensity based on the status and temperature of LED fixtures was crucial for the success of the project.
  • 15. TYPICAL FLOOR PLAN
  • 16. motion kinematics & dynamics [Animate Architecture]: Animation software is utilized as medium of formgeneration.
  • 17. Animate design is defined by the co-presence of motion and force at the moment of formal conception. Force, as an initial condition, becomes the cause of both motion and particular inflections of a form. While motion implies movement and action, animation implies evolution of a form and its shaping
  • 18. Skylite – Rooftop lounge
