Netscape: SCI-Arc Graduation Pavilion 2011 in Los Angeles, California by Oyler Wu Collaborative

Thursday, October 20th, 2011

Article source: Oyler Wu Collaborative

Every year in early September, as graduate students at the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc) in Los Angeles put the finishing touches on their thesis projects, a Sci-Arc faculty member and students prepare a temporary pavilion for the annual graduation ceremony.  This year, faculty members Dwayne Oyler and Jenny Wu of Oyler Wu Collaborative, along with their students, designed a pavilion entitled Netscape for the event that stretches across the northern end of the SCI-Arc parking lot, providing seating for 900.  Consisting of 45,000 linear feet of knitted rope, 6000 linear feet of tube steel, and 3000 square feet of fabric shade louvers, the pavilion creates a sail-like canopy of rope and fabric that floats above the audience.  With its fabric louvers tilted toward the western sky, the canopy is designed to provide shade for the specific date and time.

Mini Mall: A shopping mall with a compact, contemporary programme in a monumental building.

The Mini Mall consists of 2500 sq. m. of retail and catering space for entrepreneurs, artists, designers and other creative minds, who will breathe new life into this unique area as from spring 2011. The development of the Hofplein Station into a compact shopping mall comes in response to a lack of affordable locations in Rotterdam where fresh new initiatives can see the light of day, but also with the aim to give the neighborhood quality boost.

The new dining hall is in a 210-acre campus that hosts a mix of environments including sports fields, native grasslands, lakes, wetlands and a variety of wildlife. The original 8,000 square foot structure was built in 1968 and with subsequent enrollment increases it had become inadequate for the required 750 meals per day the school serves. The new facility had to address this hindrance as well as reveal the cycle of food culture catalyst for a more holistic dining and food education experience.

jacmel satellite city in Haiti by trans_city TC ZT gmbh (designed using ArchiCAD)

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

Article source: trans_city TC ZT gmbh

Over the last 18 months, Christian Aulinger, Mark Gilbert and Georg Kogler of trans_city architecture and urbanism have developed a comprehensive plan for the reconstruction of Jacmel, Haiti based upon the concept of satellite cities located at the edge of the existing, earthquake-ravaged city center. (A concept developed in accordance with the universal design principals of the Housing Reconstruction Framework of the Haitian Government).

The concept includes an urban masterplan, and a proposal for prefabricated houses, in which the building shell is industrially manufactured in Austria, and finished by local hand workers.

Consistent with the content of the project, the architecture does not attempt to be spectacular or extravagant. Rather, it is the holistic integration of total urban system that makes this project interesting.
