Article source: Blouin Tardif Architecture-Environnement

Montreal, October 5, 2011 – This resort complex situated on the outskirts of the Charlevoix region includes a restaurant, steam bath, sauna, massage areas, hot and cold pools, and many relaxation spaces. These functions are shared among three pavilions articulated around a landscaped area bordering the river. The challenge was to highlight nature and integrate the functions through clean, contemporary architecture that respects the environment.

Saturday, October 15th, 2011

The Kenmore Library serves a suburban community largely bypassed by recent redevelopment. Located in an emerging downtown core that is a mix of 1960s retail buildings, surface parking, and a busy highway, the library responds to needs for community space and integration of public and commercial uses.

House in Musashisakai in Tokyo, Japan by upsetters architects (designed using Vectorworks)

Saturday, October 15th, 2011

Article source: upsetters architects

This is a house for a single family, which consists of a couple and their daughter, in a suburb of Tokyo.

This project attempts to allow the family to flexibly change their way of living in one house as the daughter grows older.  Generally speaking, the change of the relationship between parents and their children often seems to be caused by the children’s growth as the parents rarely change their way of life once they established it.  Especially in Japan, it is very obvious.

The CityDeck in Green Bay, Wisconsin by Stoss Landscape Urbanism

Saturday, October 15th, 2011

Article source: Stoss Landscape Urbanism

The CityDeck is the heart of a multi-phase redevelopment project along Green Bay’s Fox River. The project aims to allow for significantly increased access to the river and to diversify social and ecological life along it.

EXISTING CONDITIONS + CHALLENGES

The site is a 2-acre strip of land, typically measuring 50 to 60 feet wide, that runs along the edge of the Fox River in downtown Green Bay. It is about one-quarter-mile in length and is situated between two bridges that cross the river. At the project’s beginning, adjacent parcels were empty, abandoned (a large yellow warehouse), or in use as parking lots. Nearby buildings turned their back on the riverfront. Unsurprisingly, there was little social or civic life here, and no reason to visit; the elevated walk along existing bulkhead walls prevented any direct access down to the river—as well as up to the city from boats.

  • Location: Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA
  • Client: City of Green Bay
  • Completion Date: Phase 1 opened in stages in 2009 and 2010. Phases 2 and 3 are scheduled for completion in 2011-2012.

Galleri Örsta in Kumla, Sweden by Claesson Koivisto Rune

Saturday, October 15th, 2011

Article source: Claesson Koivisto Rune

A gallery for modern art, placed in a field. The whole gallery building shines like a traffic sign, when seen from a certain angle.

The gallery building

The new gallery building creates a ‘hamlet’ with the adjacent old farmhouses and the owners’ house, together representing three centuries of building tradition. Positioned on top of an artificial hill, as a buffer to the site’s moist soil, the base of the building follows the hill’s topology. The resulting series of curves at the building’s base, combined with mirroring curves in the rooflines, makes the planar facades seem curved – a bit like ‘cinemascope’ screens.

Folded Corten House in Ebelsberg, Austria by x architekten (designed using Vectorworks)

Saturday, October 15th, 2011

Article source: x architekten

Task:

The existing building from the 1920s proved itself valuable to the client mainly due to the surrounding garden landscape. Nevertheless, there was the aim to create more space and living quality which was to be realised through revitalisation and extension. The client’s main wishes were the adaptation of the existing building to modern energy standards, a clearer and richer living space, the greatest possible view of the surrounding nature and the integration of garden and terrace areas into the living space and environment.

The new subway station of Alboraya-Palmaret is built together with a big park which highlights the new platform in a natural manner. The park has an approximated surface area of 6.000 square meters. It has seven terraces in different levels, leading us down, from the street to the hall of the new station. We can find in it resting areas, as well as playgrounds for children under the shadow of a large number of tress of different species.
