The Void in Jeonllanam-do, Korea by Hyunjoon Yoo Architects

The Community Center in Aphae-do, Shinan-gun, Jeollanam-do is located on a special site, and has a special programme. First of all, it was my first building project to be built on an island. Second, the main programme of the building was the public bath and restaurant for the elders in the village. The elders, who make up most of the population in the fishing village, do not have a decent bathing facility in their home.

Torre Del Borgo in Villa d’Adda, Italy by CN10architetti

 
July 24th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: CN10architetti

Torre del Borgo is one of the most famous fortified buildings in the history of Bergamo. The powerful and accurate quality of the medieval walls, the integrity of the fortified structure, the central position in the village, give to this artifact the most complete sense of monument. The restoration project has dealt with different aspects that conditioned the conservation, the use and the valorisation of the building: the structural instability of the walls and floors, the lack of an adequate system of connection between plans, the total absence of plant networks, degradation and precariousness of internal and external stone facings, lack of windows and adequate interior finishes, on floors and walls. The entire work has developed pursuing a dual purpose, first identifying solutions to the problems of degradation, second offering an architectonic and functional reinterpretation of the building. The project is designed to be made into two functional lots of action: with the completion of Lot 1, are now fully accessible the four halls of the central tower and the spaces of the new building C intended to services and distribution. An important intervention is certainly the inclusion of the new system of ramps and walkways, made entirely with an iron structure, which is articulated between the spaces of the central tower and the new building, connecting the various levels of the complex. Lot 2 will include the redevelopment of public space in Piazza del Borgo with the creation of a large area covered and protected to the road, in direct continuity with the new pavement of the square. With the completion of the restoration project, Torre del Borgo will be able to accomodate the Public Library of Villa d’Adda.

The Great Wall of WA in North Western Australia by Luigi Rosselli Architects

The longest rammed earth wall in Australia and – probably – the southern hemisphere, has been selected as a finalist in the (Australian Institute of Architects) Western Australia architecture awards.

At 230 metres long, the rammed earth wall meanders along the edge of a sand dune and encloses twelve earth covered residences, created to provide short-term accommodation for a cattle station during mustering season.   With their 450mm thick rammed earth facade and the sand dune to their rear and forming their roofs, the residences have the best thermal mass available, making them naturally cool in the subtropical climate.

Ekaterinensky Congress Center in Krasnodar, Russia by Piuarch

Article source: Piuarch

Piuarch’s design of the new Ekaterinensky Congress Center in Krasnodar, Russia, has been appointed for construction.

Located on the banks of the Kuban River, the design proposes a three level cultural complex, with a total floor area of 2,840 square meters. The plans include a conference hall with a capacity of 720 seats – which can be set up in different configurations – as a foyer, a restaurant, a bar and service areas, all the while offering a scenic view of the river bay on the side of the city, and a new pedestrian plaza where the entrance to the center will be located.

The building will also feature terraces on the roof and outdoor spaces on the ground floor, which allow for the expansion of the internal functions.

The project has offered Piuarch the opportunity to activate the relationship between the city and the river by designing a connection among the natural water environment, the coastal parks, and the urban area: reconfiguring the city’s interaction with the river.

Undisclosed Location Studios in Arlington, Virginia by Walters Storyk Design Group (WSDG)

When designing their “green” 5,000 sq. ft. Washington, DC-area Victorian home, Matt MacPhail and his wife, Ann Lyles MacPhail, were committed to using sustainable, efficient building techniques and materials.  They also agreed on one rather unorthodox requirement: a professionally designed, acoustically superlative recording studio for their thriving audio production business, News At Eleven Productions.  Located 22 feet below street level in the sub-basement of the MacPhails’ home, their new facility is called Undisclosed Location Studios, a tongue-in-cheek reference to its convenient proximity to the political power centers of downtown DC and the Pentagon.

Rendering Interior Design for Bedroom in New York by ArchiCGI

There aren’t many details in this design, and nothing distracts the mind from comfort and relaxation. With 3D imagery, you don’t need words to prove the uniqueness and effectiveness of your ideas, as visualizations will speak much more. 3D is a perfect way to recreate colors and textures, and, unlike photographic imagery, it can give you exactly what you need for your design project.

“Mid pleasures and palaces though we may roam, be it ever so humble, there’s no place like home.” – John Howard Payne.

We leave our home land for many reasons. Earning and education are the most common of the causes. So what do you do when the sound of your childhood calls you across vast distances of land and seas?
