POD Goes Virtual
Over the past half year, POD Architects has entered the world of Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Virtual reality.
Pod Architects are changing the way we present our projects and turning this process into a simple, intuitive and interactive experience. To achieve this goal we have entered the world of Building Information Modelling (BIM), combining the latest Autodesk software with the newest technologies. The idea is to turn conventional static’ drawings into a fully navigable model that incorporates design information as well as existing conditions collected via drone scans.
Holly Tree Corner Submits
POD Architects has submitted a planning application for 39 high quality residential apartments, 3 Houses and a micro-pub in Margate.
In 1926 the Olde Charles was built as a mock-tudor Public House. When built, the area was mainly fields with a seaside view. In 2016 the Public House, which had been closed and had suffered a serious fire. Now, POD Architects has proposed a new set of residential spaces with a community facility at the corner of Holly Lane and Northdown Road. The proposal provides quality place making on a prominent brownfield urban site, creating a modern replacement use for the former fire damaged public house.
POD Architects Take Paris!
Last Friday, POD Architects embarked upon an adventure overseas.
We began our tour by foot of some of the Architectural sites Paris has to offer. Perhaps the most scintillating stops of the tour were the new urban Rive Gauche development, hosted by Jusik and Robert; Oscar Niemeyer’s fascinating headquarters for the French Communist Party, presented by Camila; and finally our Parisian adventure drew to a close with an afternoon of oysters, wine and escargot at the impossibly chic Brasserie Molla rd. As we bid Paris adieu, the team felt a new found appreciation for French design, snails, and the Siene.
