The goal of the PontèPigneto competition was to gather ideas for a public space which could be energetically self-sufficient (through an intelligent use of form and technology) and elastic (capable to respond to fast urban transformations).

Rio Olympic Port in Brazil by JDS Architects

Wednesday, July 6th, 2011

Article source: JDS Architects

When looking at the creation of any new neighbourhood we need to identify qualities and clarify what its identity and attractiveness will be both for the city and for its inhabitants. For Porto Olympico we want to bring a new life to the area by creating a development which is turned inside out. Rather than making a simple series of towers with all the life on the interior, we have made a project which is defined by a thousand parks, balconies, and plateau’s of life and vitality.

Sign System For Industrial Parks in Madrid, Spain by Brut Deluxe Architecture + Design

Wednesday, July 6th, 2011

Article source: Brut Deluxe Architecture + Design

The sign system for industrial parks totem de/dos has been conceived in order to guide visitors who are not familiar with the site visually to their destiny in clear and evident way. Therefore, the system employs two types of posts. The objective of the design of the first is to give a recognizable and distinctive image to all industrial parks of the city, to visualize and identify them from long distance and any angle of approximation and mark the main accesses. Once located the industrial district, the posts facilitate more detailed graphic information – a map of the area and business listings of all companies. This information is repeated on the smaller sized secondary posts located strategically in the interior of each industrial park.

“we made this” by ctrl+n arkitektur

In order to engage the youth of today with art and cultural exhibits we first have to take ourselves back to those times and understand what it was that captured our imaginations or what in fact disengaged us with our cultural surroundings and opportunities. in order to attract teenagers to art, they themselves must feel part of the creative process. We are all guilty of, at times, only half acknowledging our surroundings. self involvement with our immediate context allows our minds to absorb and expand.

Social housing in Elmas, Italy by 2+1 officina architettura

Wednesday, July 6th, 2011

Article source: 2+1 officina architettura

2+1 officina architettura has recently completed a housing project in Elmas, a small town in the south of Sardinia, Italy. The office, which finds its field of action between artistic design and architecture, seeks for experimentation within contemporary design thinking, ‘aiming for the development of contemporary art and architecture and direc­ting their own intellectual, professional and human resources for the improvement of society and ethics’. Amid a building context fully regulated to prevent and constrain rather than experiment with new architectural solutions, 2+1 has demonstrated how to make the best of it, turning those constrictions upside down.
