R.T.P. Television Studios in Avenida Marechal Gomes da Costa, Lisboa by Frederico Valsassina

Monday, August 8th, 2011

Article source: Frederico Valsassina

The city is a mark of multiple times and appears spatially as an entity in permanent mutation. To the existent urban structures others are added, adapted to the successive ways of “living”, promoting the revival of obsolete situations and the framing of records from the past.

Open Architecture Project in Tokyo, Japan by Yoshiaki Oyabu

Sunday, August 7th, 2011

Article source: Yoshiaki Oyabu

We make use of leftover space between five buildings to provide an extension to the public realm. Our inspiration bases on uniquely Japanese notions of layered scale and externality like the Japanese traditional ‘hiroen’ . The modern hiroen changes character on the place and makes a new context of the town.

Hydroelectric Power Station in Bavaria, Germany by Becker Architekten

Sunday, August 7th, 2011

Article source: Becker Architekten

The amorphous form appears both gentle and dynamic, resembling, among other things, a large fish. But it can also be viewed simply as a volume inspired by the motion of waves – as if the structure had taken shape as a flowing, swelling mass and then solidified. The form of this hydroelectric power station traces and dramatizes the channelled dynamism of the water as it flows into the holding basin, down through the turbines, and back into the River Iller. Another obvious association is with eroded stone; in the surrounding Allgäu region, not far from the Alps, such isolated rock formations are a common sight.

Morro do Chapeu Residence in Belo Horizonte, Brazil

Sunday, August 7th, 2011

Article source: Walters-Storyk Design Group


How do you keep your pool house from reverberating like a gymnasium without draping heavy curtains on all the walls and windows?  For the owners of a luxurious villa set on the cusp of one of Brasil’s most breathtaking landscapes, the views and the pastoral silence were sacrosanct. A long expanse of windows surrounding the infinite lap pool draw attention to the spectacular mountain and garden views framing this weekend residence. The thought of echoed laughter and music disturbing this pristine environment was untenable.

Studio Daniel Libeskind’s design study was selected in February 2003 as the master site plan for the rebuilding of the World Trade Center Site. In addition to a towering spire of 1776 feet, the plan proposed a complex program which called for the construction of a memorial with waterfalls, an underground museum, a visitor center, retail space, a special transit hub and four office towers spiraling to the height of the Freedom Tower.

Figueroa Tower in Los Angeles, CA by Studio Daniel Libeskind

Saturday, August 6th, 2011

Article source: Studio Daniel Libeskind

The 1340 Figueroa Street residential development is a multifaceted composition developed within the current fabric of downtown Los Angeles. The development strikes a balance between the tall buildings of downtown and the large scale civic complexes like the neighboring Convention Center and the Staples Center. The location of the site, at the southern end of the high rise downtown district, allows the tower to create a visible marker, contributing to a new skyline for the City of Los Angeles.  Studio Daniel Libeskind is working with CA Human Technologies on the project.

Maria Theresien Strasse in Innsbruck, Austria by AllesWirdGut Architektur ZT GmbH

Saturday, August 6th, 2011

Article source: AllesWirdGut Architektur ZT GmbH

A redesigning of Maria-Theresien-Straße that does justice to the significance that the street has in the townscape of Innsbruck: the goal was to create an urban site with a rich atmosphere that invites strolling, hanging out, and meeting people. The identity of the site derives from the tension between urbanity and a panoramic view into nature, between past and future, bet­ween a specific character and a connective function in the urban structure of Innsbruck.

An eclectic international group of architects including Mad Office from Beijing, R&sie(n) from Paris, Rojkind Arquitectos from Ciudad de México and B+U from Los Angeles among others were invited to each choose one of the available sites and envision an “arch-urban object”.
