BLACK ROCK STUDIO in Scottsdale, Arizona by WEDDLE GILMORE

Sunday, May 22nd, 2011

PROJECT INTRODUCTION: Black Rock Studio is a 3150 SF loft/studio which houses an entry courtyard, gallery, and meeting space on the ground floor with studio/work spaces on the second level.    Black Rock Studio creates a dynamic relationship between building and the streetscape on the south and the canal on the north. The transparency of the north and south façade through large sliding glass doors create strong links between the studio and the canal to the public way.  The loft/studio space transforms over the course of the day as the daylight moves and washes down the side walls of the space.  Slot skylights run the length of the studio creating a floating ceiling effect and contributing to the balanced day-lighting.

PL 44 House in Greenwich, CT by Joeb Moore + Partners Architects designed using ArchiCAD

Sunday, May 22nd, 2011

This project is conceived as a series of concrete retaining walls and escarpments that traverse and cascade down a steeply sloped site approximately 700 feet deep and 300 feet wide.  In response to the steep + diagonal slope of the existing topography, the site / building strategy is to deploy a series of straight walls that act as “jetties” into the landscape and respond as a counter-force to.  As these walls begin to interact with the landscape they modulate and redistribute the sloping terrain into a series of terraces and gardens that spill and slide past one another.

Legal / Illegal in Cologne, Germany by Manuel Herz Architects

Saturday, May 21st, 2011

In the beginning of the 1970s an urban masterplan was devised for Cologne neighborhood of Bayenthal, which has never been applied since then. It was a urbanistic stillborn; the desperate and utterly misdirected attempt to react to a then pressing urban problem: the exodus from the city. Since the early sixties young families moved out of inner city areas into the suburbs and the villages surrounding the cities in order to fulfill their dreams of that uprising prosperous middle class.

Hover House 3 in Los Angeles, California by Glen Irani Architects

Saturday, May 21st, 2011

Situated on the Venice Canals of Los Angeles, California, Hover House 3 represents the third in the architects’ Hover House series. This series focuses on maximizing outdoor living on small lots by ‘hovering’ the building envelope above the grade level in order to create space for outdoor living environments. This series proposes that interior living space be reduced in favor of less resource-intensive outdoor living amenities. As material and labor costs increase in the coming decades, increasing outdoor functionality while decreasing indoor area in temperate climate zones is one solution to the rising cost and over-consumption of building resources.

As such, the only representational media associated with this project comes in the form of working/shop drawings. It was never computer modelled/rendered because the forms were not preconceived, but the complex results of the simple process of making the physical artifacts.”
