“Here, we stopped to reflect on the place, making an attempt to understand this sector of the city in an environment that has no soul, no color… it is a part of the city without definition, to be mentioned and try to define its homes, how living in this sector, how is the house where peolple live? … Accumulate synonyms are not. Playing the lottery ceilings, roofs, terraces: la choza, el jacal, el jacalón urbano, la cabaña, el tugurio, la cueva, el cuartucho, el cuchitril, la vivienda de la vieja vecindad, and then, the buildings, the flats, the residence, the houses, the rancho.  Makeshift houses in straying where others repeat their experience, ‘Parachute’ are. So call them. Invaders that arrive as the very dirt, a huge estate unjust poverty with no future ”

Israel’s government, with the agreement of the Russian government has proposed erecting a monument to mark the Red Army’s victory over Nazi Germany.

The Red Army was a decisive factor in defeating Nazism and ceasing the genocide of the Jewish people in the concentration and extermination camps in Europe.

House Ocho in Carmel, California, USA by Feldman Architecture

Sunday, May 15th, 2011

Located in a nature preserve in the Santa Lucia Mountains, the site of oak forests and steep meadows strongly impacted and inspired Feldman Architecture’s design for House Ocho. In order to reduce the impact of the home’s massing and to preserve site lines, the building settles into the ground and overhanging roofs are planted with tall native grasses. The house is also divided up into a series of pavilions to lessen its overall mass.

XI ThyssenKrupp Elevator Architecture Award

The location of this new tower is a beautiful green area surrounding a lake and very close to the city. The proximity to the airport will give the new building an opportunity to be seen from the sky and not only from the earth. The landscape of the city area is mainly flat and with very strong sunlight. Climate conditions are typical of this latitude and are certainly extreme in some months of the year. A lot of time was spent thinking about what the best gesture for such a scenario would be. So that in one building I could respond to all area conditions and social expectations required by a new iconic tower. A particular thought was given to the experience that children shall obtain from a contemporary building.

Falkonergården by JAJA Architects

Sunday, May 15th, 2011

The objective was to create an expansion of the school and its gym facilities. We proposed an infill conceived as a contemporary interpretation of the existing building mass that connects and transforms the detached gyms into one coherent functional facility. The interior spectatpr stands and space is then extended into the courtyard, thus creating a continuous space where gym and schoolyard, building and landscape merges into an unified entity.

Temporary Kindergarten Ajda in Ravne na Koroskem, Slovenia by Arhitektura Jure Kotnik

Sunday, May 15th, 2011

In a small Slovenian town close to the border with Austria kindergartens unexpectedly became too small for the increasing number of young children and the existing kindergarten infrastructure had to be quickly expanded to meet the rising demand. The original idea was to build a larger kindergarten extension next to the old one, but this was a plan for the mid-term. In the meantime the authorities resorted to an efficient solution using ISO containers, which are quick to set up and cost-efficient.
