Fullerton And Belmont Stations in Chicago, Illinois by Ross-Barney Architects

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

The design of the Fullerton and Belmont Stations are a balance of many influences and attempts to bridge the perceived gap between safety, accessibility, and connections to neighborhoods by creating a consistent, recognizable branding for the transit system, while providing unique amenities within open-air plazas at each locality.

The plazas enclose controlled entrances into the stations. In the main plazas, fare collection gateways are supported by flanking white brick pylons that lead to monumental stairs, from which lighter stairs connect to the platforms. Within the plazas, concrete columns taper to provide visual relief and a canvass for artwork bearing the weight of the new, sound-dampening track structure above.

Linda Flora Residence in Los Angeles by Shubin+Donaldson Architects

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

This 26,800 sq.ft. home not only merges with its remarkable environment, but virtually disappears. Except for a few deft lines and angles – such as the ordered rows of the surrounding vineyard – there is very little perceivable ‘built’ presence. The entrance is marked by a single low wall, delicately cut into the land while sheltering a stairway that immediately begins the descent into the home.

Vader House in Fitzroy, Melbourne, Australia by Andrew Maynard Architects

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

The Vader House is an extension to a Victorian terrace in the dense inner-city. The high boundary walls, built in disregard of existing height regulations long before such rules were created, permitted a non-standard height along the northern boundary. The roofline then abruptly turns to follow the dictated set-back lines, resulting in a playful and telling interpretation of planning rules. All the new works surround an outdoor courtyard space which becomes the new centre of the house- accessed by a series of glass doors it is the opposite of the dark masonry-clad rooms of the old house. The refined palate of materials is subverted where volumes are removed to reveal the flesh inside – coloured bright red with glass tiles and joinery.

Residence in KURAKUEN in Hyougo, Japan by NRM-Architects Office

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

This building is fixed on the site so that most construction is so. It has a site and interaction necessarily that it is fixed on the site. I formed the frame of the building by talking with a site and schemed that the interaction took you as construction, and it was generated good environment.  I do not see the site where this building stands from front road at an extreme flag-shaped site.

Cornucopia Sukkah by Bill Caplan

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

The building of a Sukkah, a temporary dwelling and gathering place to celebrate the harvest, is governed by many ancient parameters with biblical origin.  It must have two full walls and another that is at least partial, offer protection from the wind, and support a roof laid from organic matter called schach.  The schach must provide more than fifty percent daytime shade, yet beckons the stars at night.  Proportions, size, material, composition and attachment are all regulated within strict limits.  The Cornucopia Sukkah is an architectural form that remains true to its tradition while generating a fluid parametric interpretation.

Hydra Skyscraper by Vlastic, Vuk Djordjevic, Ana Lazovic and Milica Stankovic

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

What would happen when the ultimate source of energy could be free for all humans, when it could be possible to replace all fossil fuels with   alternative ? In an effort to reduce global climate change, we made a facility which can produce the most rewarding alternative sources of sustainable energy – Hydrogen . As we know hydrogen does not exist alone in nature, and it is a very important element because it can be used as a non-toxic energy storage and transport medium. Hydrogen can provide a promising method to help the World to achieve energy independence, make strides in environmental stewardship, and develop a thriving economy.

Floating Observatories in Taiwan by Dorin STEFAN’s DSBA, Mihai CARCIUN and upgrade.studio

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

“FLOATING OBSERVATORIES” Proposal by Dorin STEFAN’s DSBA, Mihai CARCIUN and upgrade.studio wins the “Taiwan Tower” Conceptual International Competition

“Starting from the ‘geographical’ visual of Taiwan which is an island resembling a leaf we have developed the concept of the technological tree: we have designed 8 spatial leaves (with eight being a propitious number in the local culture) in the form of zeppelinlike elevators which glide up and down the ‘tree trunk” and which serve the purpose of observation decks / belvedere. I have called these elevators floating observatories because each has a nacelle which can take 50 to 80 people; they are selfsustained by helium balloons and are built from lightweight materials (borrowed from the spacecraft industry) and are wrapped in a lastgeneration type of membrane (PTFE) and they glide vertically on a track positioned vertically in a strong electromagnetic field” Dorin STEFAN, Principal, DSBA*
