SoHo Synagogue in New York by Dror Benshetrit

Saturday, August 6th, 2011

Article source: Dror Benshetrit

The SoHo Synagogue is the community’s first ever synagogue and represents a fresh vision that translates the inspiration of Judaism to a new generation. With a forward thinking approach, Rabbi Dovi Scheiner along with his wife Esty, founders of SoHo Synagogue,built a religious platform that invites the community to fully integrate their religion within their modern lifestyle. Mindful of the open mindset of lower Manhattan’s Jewish population, The SoHo  Synagogue seeks to reinvent the synagogue as a comfortable and enjoyable setting for personal growth and communal connection. We were humbled and honored when receiving the invitation and assignment to create a space in which the synagogue can embrace the traditions and its fundamental function within a contemporary, casual design setting. On Sunday June 12, a long and festive procession of supporters and congregants dressed in white walked the neighborhood together to cut the ribbon and open the door to their new synagogue. The synagogue will hold both social gatherings and religious services.

Vallehermoso Sports Centre in Madrid, Spain by ABM arquitectos

Saturday, August 6th, 2011

Article source: ABM arquitectos

The site is located in a central area of Madrid, in the district of Chamberí. In this same place, until just a few years ago was located the Vallehermoso Stadium complex. Built in the 50’s, this complex included the locally famous athletics stadium and a number of complementary sports facilities. The installation closed to the public in 2007 and was demolished in 2008. Since then, the Town Hall is planning the construction of a new Sports Center (that is starting to become a reality after the selection of this project as the design winner) and a new athletics stadium that will be developed later on. The construction of the new Vallehermoso Sports Centre will start in 2012. It will be a gentle building in its architectural expression; it will embrace the city and it will interact with it creating a meeting point and an activity focus.
