Ordos Office Complex in Dongsheng District, Ordos, China by Preston Scott Cohen

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

One essential aspect of the modern office tower is the efficient, open plan found on each level. An office building which attempts sculptural exuberance risks undermining this tried and true logic.

However, simple extruded rectangular boxes lack the iconic presence corporations seek as well as the spatial interest that occupants appreciate. The Ordos Office Complex employs an economical formal idea, avoiding sculptural excess by deploying a hot and cool approach. A neutral skin and efficient floor plans are intensified by spatial incidents deep within the building as well as social spaces that multiple tenants can share.

The Ordos Office Complex represents a new permutation of the “horizontal skyscraper” idea. It is as if a single office tower were cut into four buildings, with their lobbies arrayed horizontally across the site. Because of the topography of the site, this new horizontal datum is suspended in midair.

Page Road House in Lincoln, Massachusetts by Andrew Cohen Architects

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

Located in Lincoln, Massachusetts, a suburb just 13 miles from Boston, this house’s dynamic sculptural form developed in dialogue with the landscape, topography and zoning considerations of a 12-acre site of environmentally sensitive land that bears traces of its former use as a Christmas tree farm. The house is setback from the street on a common driveway shared by two adjacent houses, which preserves the character of the quiet country road and creates a pleasing arrival sequence leading up to the house.

Danfoss Universe in Nordborg, Denmark by J. MAYER H. Architects designed using ArchiCAD, MAYA and Rhino

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

The new buildings rise up from the ground and provide spaces which articulate the fusion of outdoor landscape and indoor exhibition. This active ground modulates according to program and location in the park. The endpoints of the buildings blur the line between building and park by offering inside-out spaces as display areas and projection surfaces related to the temporary exhibitions inside. Silhouettes, as groups of land formations, define the unique newly programmed horizon line of Danfoss Universe.

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

The geometry of the building is based on the footprint of the house that previously was located on the site. Originally built in 1984 and with many extensions and modifications since then, the new building echoes the “family archaeology” by duplication and rotation. Lifted up, it creates a semi-public space on ground level between two layers of discretion.

Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb, Croatia by Studio za arhitekturu d.o.o.

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

At a place that at the time of the competition had no urban characteristics, Franić took into consideration the strongly stressed orthogonal matrix of Novi Zagreb, from where he continued to develop the project. For Franić, the context is the entire Novi Zagreb, both in the sense of the heritage of modern city-planning culture and the area with specific ambience characteristics, which to a great extent marks the large, even gigantic scale of the architecture of open spaces.
