VCU Adcenter in Richmond, Virginia, is one of the foremost media, advertising and communications schools in North America. In an effort to expand and broaden the educational prospectus, a new building was planned. A vacant historic three-storey brick carriage house from 1890 provided the main school teaching space, and this is supplemented with a new 12,000 SF three-storey ‘service structure’ located along side, which provides modern facilities and additional space on several levels, including seismic bracing of the old building.

Mar Mediterrâneo & Mar Vermelho Office Buildings in Lisbon, Portugal by IDF – Ideias do Futuro

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2011

Article source: IDF – Ideias do Futuro

The Project for two office buildings located on Parque das Nações fits into a rectangular lot with three fronts. They are isolated structures that rise from a common landscaped platform and are compatible in size. A parallelepiped finishes the top of the block while it encloses the plaza outlined by the H shaped building. The main entrances of both buildings meet face to face in this public space interstitial to the street level which is extended on the upper level garden where one may walk around and take in the surroundings.

Austrian Pavilion Expo 2008 Zaragoza by SOLID architecture ZT GmbH

Sunday, November 20th, 2011

Article source: SOLID architecture ZT GmbH

The Austrian Pavilion at the EXPO 2008 in Zaragoza was designed by an interdisciplinary team formed by SOLID architecture, Michael Strauss and Scott Ritter.  For the EXPO 2008 the participating countries rented spaces in buildings provided by the organizer. The room made available for the Austrian pavilion had a semi-circular shape. The central idea of the design concept was to double that shape to the figure of a cylinder by using a floor-to-ceiling mirror. This mirror extended along the length of the room and doubled a digital 180° projection on the curved interior wall into a 360° panorama. By means of digital projection the panorama underwent permanent changes.
