FP House in Belo Horizonte, Brasil by Joao Diniz

Wednesday, February 9th, 2011

The Pampulha lagoon in Belo Horizonte is full of architectural significance and to build on its margins means to be close to the modernist legacy. The building considers that recent history but also expresses its modern urban spirit with rural balconies and breezes.The land slope dialogues with the building and proposes fittings and suspensions.

Harkavy Residence in Potomac, Maryland by Robert M. Gurney Architect

Wednesday, February 9th, 2011

This house of 2900 square feet is located on a one acre, wooded lot, adjacent to park land outside of Washington, DC. The house is sited away from the road and oriented toward views deep into the woods. The sequence of entry is defined by a series of walls, intended to privatize and delineate the approach and entry into the house. The walls, garage volume and house become a threshold between the road and the wooded parkland.

Cottages at Fallingwater in Mill Run, Pennsylvania by Patkau Architects

Wednesday, February 9th, 2011

The retained meadowland above Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater is the site of six new cottages. The meadow, which is a fragment of a ‘recent’ cultural landscape, provides a complimentary experience to the surrounding native forest from which to appreciate and understand both native ecology and cultural history. It opens a clearing in the forest; a clearing that establishes the possibility of a sustainable relationship between human occupancy, site and sun.

“Weave Housing” in Denver by Meridian 105 Architects

Wednesday, February 9th, 2011

‘Weave Housing’ is a design proposal for an urban mixed use complex in Denver CO, with 160 apartment units, retail and parking. Inspired by a children’s potholder loom, the facade texture supports multiple interior apartment arrangements with units occupying one or two bays in width, and one or two levels in height, allowing for flexibility and plan variety. By weaving occupiable volumes across the facade, private balconies and overhangs are created, establishing zones of natural shading and meeting the desired passive energy strategy. The long dimension of each apartment unit is stretched parallel to the corridors, taking advantage of natural light and views while minimizing the depth light is asked to penetrate the space.

T-Wall Housing in Al Qurnah, Basrah, Iraq by New World Design LLC

Wednesday, February 9th, 2011

The T-wall—a freestanding precast concrete panel with a footing cast into the base—is perhaps the most ubiquitous architectural element in Iraq’s security landscape. Used to create barricades around secure military zones, T-walls are scattered across the country by the millions, and as American forces draw down their forward operating bases in Iraq, hundreds of thousands of these T-walls will be either discarded or crushed. Due to their steel reinforcing, most T-walls will be banished to so-called T-wall graveyards, to be stored for an indeterminate amount of time for an undetermined purpose.
