Deichmanske Main Library/’Sugar’ in Oslo by Wiel Arets Architects

Sunday, April 24th, 2011

Article source: WE Architects

The proposed urban configuration of the new Deichmanske Main Library capitalizes on the site’s morphologic potential. The site is centrally and prominently located between existing and up-and-coming cultural institutions. Positioned between the waterfront and the Oslo Fjord, the new library’s compact program has been divided into a number of volumes – ‘solitaries’ – that have been evenly dispersed throughout the site.

Eureka Valley Residence in San Francisco, California by Cary Bernstein Architect

Sunday, April 24th, 2011

The renovation of this 1908 craftsman’s house and garage was completed in three phases over the course of 7-years.   Interiors were opened up, basements were excavated to create additional living stories and modern details were introduced throughout the property, resulting in a final design that reveals multiple layers of time and occupancy.  The small building footprints (600sf house / 500sf garage) are optimized for function and light while their new spatial connection across the courtyard makes the full site available for the daily use of the family.

Skyline Rooftop Museum by OFIS arhitekti

Sunday, April 24th, 2011

2010_Competition proposal
Urban context

The building is placed within the forecast area in a way that establishes a dialogue with its surroundings and respects the existing volumes and flows. At the eastern part of the building is open outer space – park area, which creates a multi-purpose entry space, space for socializing, events and open air exhibitions. It creates a gap between existing historical building and new construction, while joining the river bank with a transverse Street E. The difference of terrain height is designed in the form of the open air amphitheater. In this way it opens views towards the river bank and Lent also from inside of the area and generates perpendicular flows and connections.

Regiocentrale Zuid in Maasbracht, The Netherlands by Wiel Arets Architects

Sunday, April 24th, 2011

The river Meuse serves many different purposes. Next to being an important transport route for inland shipping, its banks accommodate agriculture, plants, wildlife and recreational activity. The water that flows through the Meuse is used as drinking water, for industrial processes and as cooling water. Its summer bed is an important source of sand and gravel. In the event of flooding the danger must be gone against.

Physalia, A Positive Energy Amphibious Garden to Clean European Waterways in Europe by Vincent Callebaut Architectures

Saturday, April 23rd, 2011

More than one billion of people do not have any access to drinking water. Three thousands of people die everyday from having consumed polluted water. The water is thus not a good. It should belong to everybody. Many non governmental organisations as well as the PNUD (Programme of the United Nations for the Development) fight for the idea that water is a “common good”. It must be highly considered and be part of a different management that is not commercial, connecting public and private organisms not only in national and regional frameworks but also on the worldwide scale inside UN or a new specialised “ad hoc” institution.

House in perbes, Spain by Díaz y Díaz Arquitectos

Saturday, April 23rd, 2011


The dwelling is located in the highest zone of the plot, to take maximum advantage of the excellent views and to set back, as far as possible, respect to the street. The entrance porch is in the left side of the front of the plot, corresponding with the highest point of the street. It has two doors, one for pedestrian access and another one for vehicles. A ramp allows these to come to the basement level and to gain access to the garage door existing in it. Next to it, an exterior covered seat of parking is arranged.

The International Criminal Court in The Hague, The Netherlands by Wiel Arets Architects

Saturday, April 23rd, 2011

The organizational and volumetric shape of the ICC responds to the unique programmatic demands so as to produce a strong public presence and recognition value. An apparent contradiction – an enigmatic building shell in which all people and information are completely secure – must be realized.
