Thursday, April 28th, 2011

$90 million science complex design focuses on sustainability and energy efficiency. Modernized facilities will aid EMU in training Michigan’s next generation of workers in the sciences.

YPSILANTI, Mich., Feb. 23, 2011 – A spherical planetarium/classroom at the top of the glass and brick exterior of a new five-story building with metal sunshades, a green roof, and a rain garden act together to provide a dressed up entry to the western edge of the Eastern Michigan University (EMU) campus. These features are all part of the $90 million, energy-efficient addition to and renovation of the Mark Jefferson Science Building, a green design and construction project pursuing LEED silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council and designed by the Ann Arbor, Michigan, office of architecture firm Lord, Aeck & Sargent.

Paper Cut Parlor in Stockholm by Visiondivision

Thursday, April 28th, 2011

Article source: Visiondivision

Visiondivision has made a waiting room for a private clinic in Stockholm that specializes in athletic injuries. The clinic has two functions; it consists of a rehab gym and an arthroscopic centre. The clinic is occupying a storey in a larger hospital with a staircase and elevator unit that goes through all the floors in the building. We wanted to separate the clinic from the rest of the rather bland hospital environment when creating the new waiting room, and make a clearly defined space that is fresh and diverse while still being comfortable and relaxed to hang around and work in.

San Agustin Media Center in Tenerife, Spain by SIC Arquitectura

Thursday, April 28th, 2011

Be a building or be a open square- garden. Be in an open outdoor space or be a enclosed space. Internalize the outside or reveal the inside. constant or discontinuous, domestic spaces or urban ones. A place where these contradictions and public-sphere concepts are incorporated. The proposal states the restoration of a XV century church, which is recorded as BIC, in order to create a mediatheque that dynamizes and stimulates San Cristóbal de La Laguna´s central core. The intervention establishes a programmatic floor and a luminous roof.

A8ernA in Zaanstad, The Netherlands by NL Architects

Thursday, April 28th, 2011

Koog aan de Zaan is a sweet little village near Amsterdam. It is located at the river Zaan. In the early seventies a new Freeway was constructed. In order to cross the river Highway A8 was build on columns. The new road crosses town in a fascinating way. It produced a brutal cut in the urban tissue. Ironically, progress has resulted here in a radical separation between the Church and the State: on one side of the elevated highway is a Chapel and on the other the former City Hall. The columns are about seven meters high. The space under the deck is strangely monumental: a stretched cathedral.

JEONGOK PREHISTORY MUSEUM in Jeongok, South korea by X-Tu architects

Thursday, April 28th, 2011

On the river side, in a winding landscape, a bridge
stretched between two cliffs, a threshold, a bridge

spanning a precipice …

We wished to honour the riverside landscape which saw the birth of the first inhabitants of Korea, and acknowledge the beauty of the two hill curves echoing the river meanders.
