House of Trough in Hokkaido, Japan by Jun Igarashi Architects

Monday, March 14th, 2011

The site is located in the east of Hokkaido. And this architecture is planned for husband and wife in flagpole site form. Surroundings this site, next house is in east side, and next house’s garage is in north side. It has no need to view surroundings with work place of iron factory in south side. And the garden of next house in the west, but it is difficult to predict how changing with this place would finally feel. This house was designed while considering climate environment and surrounding context.

Museum of Memory and Tolerance, Mexico City by Arditti + RDT Architects

Monday, March 14th, 2011

An Architectural Space for the Coexistence Among All People

The history of humanity is tarnished with episodes that have catalyzed the most incomprehensible acts to the human mind…the extermination of mankind by mankind.

The Museum of Memory and Tolerance highlights these irrationalities and provides information advocating peaceful and respectful coexistence among all people. It is therefore of great significance that the conceptual design of the building relates to its context.

Layered House in Hokkaido, Japan by Jun Igarashi Architects

Monday, March 14th, 2011

The site is located in the east of Hokkaido, the old city area of Saroma-cho and there is a road in the north side. The warehouses of the farm co-op stand along this street, and there is much traffic density. There is the office of the farm co-op in the East, and a warehouse is adjacent in the west. In the south, there is a small garden, and the house of parents of client is built. Jun Igarashi Architects designed the space for family(four persons) in this place. Space with the directionality to the south side was thought at first by the situation of the site outskirts and this place. They tried to solve space problem with a connection to the outside with a buffering space.

Camp JRF in South Sterling, Pennsylvania by Metcalfe Architecture & Design

Monday, March 14th, 2011

Metcalfe Architecture & Design is working with Camp JRF, a Jewish Reconstructionist summer camp in the Poconos, to create an Eco-Village in the forest up a hill from the existing camp, for older adolescent girl and boy campers that reflects the religious sect’s ideals of “peoplehood” (Tziyounut) and “repairing the world” (Tikkun Olam). Reconstructionism is a progressive approach to Jewish life integrating a deep respect for traditional Judaism with the insights of today.
