At Terminal 3 of Changi International Airport in Singapore, an overhead system of glass skylights and aluminum louversvisible here in both model form and detail imageregulates lighting and minimizes energy consumption. During the day, the sensor-driven louvers limit the amount of direct sunlight that enters and diffuse it throughout the space. At night, they illuminate the terminal by reflecting concealed artificial lighting. This modulation system is just one of the unique features at Changi, recently named the Worlds Best Airport for the fifth year in a row by @skytrax_uk. #Architecture #AirportDesign #Singapore #ArchModelMonday

A creative office space in downtown Los Angeles, The Desmond is the latest chapter in the evolution of a building that dates back to 1916. In designing the adaptive reuse of what was originally an automobile showroom, and later served textile manufacturers and Desmond''s department store, the principle of minimal intervention guided our work. Taking advantage of existing features such as high ceilings, large steel windows, and exposed concrete allowed the SOM team to restore the architectural integrity of the historic building while updating it to meet contemporary workplace needs.

Evoking the old jinglePepsi-Cola hits the spotthis photo by @carlyostnyc shows the soft drink companys headquarters building in New York. Completed in 1960, the office was designed by Gordon Bunshaft and Natalie de Blois of SOM. Its notable modernist features, highlighted by an innovative curtain wall of aluminum spandrels and gray-green glass, resulted in the building receiving early and enduring critical acclaim. Named Building of the Year by @mas_nyc just three months after its dedication, the Pepsi-Cola Corporation World Headquarters was designated a New York City landmark in 1995. #Architecture #Design #Modernism #ThrowbackThursday #Regram

Looking skyward in Dubai, @hafez snapped this shot of Cayan Tower. The 307-meter-tall tower reflects the idea that a buildings form should directly follow its structural framework. While its 73 floorplates are all identical, each is slightly rotated against the story below it, resulting in a full 90-degree twist from base to apex. This distinctive, helical form allows the tower to withstand wind forces and solar heat gain. #Architecture #Design #CayanTower #Dubai #Regram
