The problem :
it had to be a place conveying the multiplicity in unity of the society in Reunion, a place where to awake a collective consciousness, a place for transversalities and exchanges, both an interactive laboratory and a place to live in.

SuperStadium in Harbin, China by Alan S Lu

Friday, August 5th, 2011

Article source: Alan S Lu

SuperStadium is a proposal for an Olympic complex for Harbin’s bid for the 2022 Winter Olympics that seeks to integrate the multitude of Olympic arenas and villages into one continuous entity, allowing for a seamless transition between programs and events. With the economic burdens of hosting the Olympic games a key issue in the local and global economy, the proposal attempts to inject the current model of sporting arenas with a social and cultural initiative. Thus, the building itself becomes a series of typological layers, with the ground floor programmed as a cultural landscape with libraries, museums, convention halls, and screening rooms.

new Space for the Arango House in Madrid, Spain by Elisa Valero Ramos

A Crossed Garden

Sharpening one’s gaze, discovering the beauty behind everyday events, being able to capture it and make it one’s own, allowing it to change one; that is the Gordian knot of the creative process, and this work is constructed in a context that is especially appropriate for it. Located on an estate near the mountains of El Escorial, the intervention responds to the need to join two houses that constitute a single living space whose peculiarity is the present of significant works of art.

House in Kikuicho, Japan by NOA Architect & Associates

Friday, August 5th, 2011

Article source: NOA architect & associates

An exterior wall has an important role. It separates inside and outside. In many cases in wooden structure, exterior walls are divided into many layers for different purposes. The outer layer protect against weather, dirt and fire while inner layers need fireproofing as well as aesthetical attributes. As a result, the total thickness can be 20 cm thick. For this project we developed and add one more layer to it. Raised from the face of the unit, the translucent cladding softens incoming light and blurs the visibility of both passerby’s and inhabitants. Where in view of neighboring structures and street-level traffic, the milky surface extends over the windows to obstruct the view, while other less-compromised openings remain exposed.

Interplay between virtual and real motion

Clearly visible from outside behind the glass facade, the grasp pendulum also provides a thematic introduction to the exhibition on human motor functions in the Medical Technology Science Center. The eight-metre high installation visualises the quality and complexity of grasping. It consists of three pendulum arms suspended in parallel, each of which carries 12 inward and outward-facing monitors. The screens show virtual hands, which interact with each other from one screen to another.

NPS Podium Roof Garden in Toronto, Canada by PLANT Architect, Perkins Will Canada, HSLA and ABUP

Project update – December 22, 2011 – The Nathan Phillips Square Revitalization Podium Green Roof Garden has won two more Awards!!

  • Green Roofs For Healthy Cities 2011 Award of Excellence
  • DX Silver Award

The Podium Green Roof Garden is the first transformation in the competition-winning scheme “Agora Theatre” –  the Nathan Phillips Square Revitalization. This three-acre upper-level component of Viljo Revell’s 1965 iconic City Hall and multi-level public square was originally conceived as a ceremonial public space, reached via a giant sculptural ramp. The space was never successful at attracting the public – it was a grim, empty, three acres of concrete that has been closed to the public for well over a decade. The Podium Green Roof Garden re-conceives this upper level as a vast public park integrated with the existing elevated walkway system, and while respecting the complex’s heritage status, reopening it to the public as a truly engaging 21st Century space. The project reconsiders how an extensive green roof providing a plethora of technical environmental benefits can be an exciting and successful public space that merits repeated, habitual visits. It is the largest publicly accessible green roof in Canada and the flagship green roof project for the City of Toronto that since 2009 mandates green roofs on all new buildings. By creating a vital community space that fulfils this environmental imperative, it promotes a broader concept of stewardship linking people to their environment.
