The University of Minnesota Duluth has instituted a new Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering (BSCE). The new building, completed in 2010, provides approximately 35,300 gross square feet to house classrooms, instructional and research laboratories, and office space for the Civil Engineering Department. The new building builds on and reinforces the existing circulation patterns that are part of the UMD campus.

“Out of the Strong Came Forth Sweetness” sculpture at the The Angel Building, London by Ian McChesney

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

Out of the Strong Came Forth Sweetness is a stunning new sculpture by Ian McChesney for the Angel Building in London. The shape of the piece was generated by allowing treacle to fall from a spoon – the resulting form is then inverted. The unit comprises an oval seating area from which extends a narrow twenty two metre high spar – that’s over 5 double decker buses. The title is taken from the motto on the Lyles Black Treacle tin which, in turn is a reference to a story in the Old Testament. It is fabricated from carbon fibre which is both strong and very light enabling it to be incredibly slender. At the foot of the piece is a seating area upholstered in leather by designer Bill Amberg.

The piece was comissioned by developer Derwent London for the Angel Building, a new office development near the Angel underground station in Islington, London. The building was designed by architects AHMM.

MAISON L in France by Christian Pottgiesser

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

Less than half an hour’s drive west from Paris city center is located the site of roughly 5000 m2. The rather flat ground slightly tilts to the north, just before the general topography drops abruptly to the river Seine. A gain of only a few meters of altitude would be sufficient to permit an ample view of the Parisian outskirts. The whole original setup resembles more a clearing in a forest. The surrounding vegetation, mainly consisting of old trees, does not allow a view beyond the dense periphery. In the northern part of the plot one finds today an orangery of the late 18th Century, inhabited by a six person family.

Locker Room, ULHT, Lisboa, Portugal by Posto9 Arquitectos

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

The project consists of two bodies connected by a central core. The first volume corresponds to a 3-storey building, which appears in the extension of the adjacent building. The second volume is an existing building (old spas) with one floor. The central core works as entrance lobby and as connection between the two bodies concentrating all circulations.

Kralingse Berg in Rotterdam, Netherlands by MVRDV Architect

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

Rotterdam is Europe’s main port, the port area stretches along the Rhine from the city centre towards the sea, its industries and cranes are the icons of the port city. The north east of Rotterdam is a sharp contrast to the general image of the city dominated by industrial activity and modern architecture: a green suburban area of great natural beauty. The historic neighbourhood of Kralingen, parklands, the river Rotte and a series of lakes with riparian leisure facilities such as yacht harbours mark this affluent part of the city. The area would be a real oasis in the dense urban fabric but it is brutally split by a motorway and train rail. The main artery of the Benelux, a motorway which connects the 3 main ports and generates constant traffic and pollution, cuts through this green area. The main eastern train lines run next to the motorway. Crouched against the infrastructure a series of industries are located, in a strange paradox surrounded by the nicest parks of the city.

House R in Schondorf, Germany by Bembé dellinger

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

Schondorf on Lake Ammersee has become an attractive place to live due to its location, its good infrastructure, the short distance to Munich and the airport. A mansion for a business couple, curious, brave and interested in design. A house with complex functional sequences. A framed view of the sculptural landscape. 380 massive acrylic glass cylinders perforating the building’s exterior skin.
