Buffalo Bill’s Home To Get $130 Million Facelift

At the age of 40 the storied Ralph Wilson Stadium, that has played host to some of the NFL’s greatest games and players, is getting a facelift. That operation is coming in the next 10 months, part of the $130 million renovation project that gathers steam after the season and should be completed for the season opener in 2014.

The project will be more than just overpriced floor renovations, especially with a $130 million price tag. The over hall will make the aging facility more fan-friendly, increase advertising and sponsorship revenue and will allow stadium to search as a viable home for the Bills for at least the next nine years.

“This renovation is geared toward the fan,” Bills President and CEO Russ Brandon said. “It significantly enhances the fans’ game-day experience.”

SuperSkyScrapers Competition: Singapore Bamboo Skyscraper

Singapore_05

TITLE:
Singapore Bamboo Skyscraper

PROJECT:
The program challenges participants to design a NEW Architect’s Village Bamboo Skyscraper that takes into account the need for a contemporary approach of bamboo construction in such an urban setting and also today’s ever-increasing need for ecological design principles. The design should be visually and aesthetically engaging in contributing to the wider investigation to the use and possibilities of bamboo in tall construction design.

The new proposed skyscraper city should in general maximise positive impact of such a Vertical Structure and be an acceptable addition to the Singapore City Skyline.

It should respond directly to the issue of sustainable and ecology space creation in a city such as Singapore and also address the social, environmental, cultural and economic issues and concerns of the ever-increasing construction of urban Skyscrapers.

The design proposal must have bamboo as the dominant material as this is an investigation into innovative possibilities for bamboo as a material for tall construction design as support or covering (cladding) for such structures.
