Ise O in Mie, Japan by Chikara Ohno / sinato

Thursday, September 29th, 2011

Article source: Chikara Ohno / sinato

A new house built on the misshapen site for a family of four.  The site faces the urban scale such as parking area and public pool.  So it was better to keep enough distance from them, but the house open to the outside was required.  We placed 3 rectangles along the site, 3 quadrangles between the rectangles and 1 triangle at the center on a plan.  3 rectangles are the mass for the rooms such as living room, kitchen, bedroom, etc.  3 quadrangles are the courtyards.

Yizhuang is a new city in the south-east of Beijing. At the moment the area is only fields on which the infrastructures works have already started. So there is a main street that will go throughout the city from north to south. This main street will be crossed by 3 main knots defining 3 main districts : an administrative district, a cultural district and an offices district. Our project is located in the offices district and will be the first to be built. A train station stops right in front of the plot, the line will be linking downtown Beijing to the upcoming Yizhuang city.

Vernooy House in Haarzuilens, The Netherlands by Van Rooijen Architecten

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

Article source: Van Rooijen Architecten

A deteriorated farmhouse in the vicinity of the castle De Haar was demolished and replaced by a new one. The context of the rural surroundings and the dominant roof shape of the old farmhouse were the ingredients for the design concept of the new farmhouse. The new house has its own strong characteristics and refers to the ‘old’ only at an abstract level and can be appreciated as a ‘sculpture in the landscape’.

Bridging the Gap by Studio BÄNG Designed using Rhino and Grasshopper

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

Article source: Studio BÄNG

Thinking about a modular, quickly deploy- able and adaptable bridge design a quite complex shape based on parametric design strategies and digital fabrication methods was developed. We started to parametrize points in X, Y and Z direction at relevant areas of a bridge in Rhino Grasshopper. Four points at the beginning and the end of the bridge and four in the middle. These 12 parametrized points give the opportunity to steer the crosssection of the bridge at three important areas. Based on these points the defi nition creates three frames one for each end of the bridge and one in the middle.

Distribution building for medicines and medical equipment in Zagreb, Republic of Croatia by UPi-2M Architect

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

Article source: UPi-2M

Parcel is situated on the outskirts of the town (SE part), morphologically a quite specific heterogeneous environment. A morphology of single volume building is presented by transformation of forms which unite the logic of existing elements of greenhouse/train/hangar and architectural interpretation of the facilities. Western facade represents the view of the building’s section itself on that very position. Northern and southern facades are perforated by a random pattern of openings, giving two-way lighting to the interior. Night brings the inverse effect, as the luminous projections on the cylinder create a dotted morphology for the mono-volume building.Roof cover is kal-zip steel sheet.bearing structure is made out of equal prefabricated reinforced concrete arched elements that are shortened at their bottom. Internal office area has bearing composite structure (steel + reinforced concrete).
