Xiang’he  Garden City – Park of the floating gardens

Ambitions

At this moment a masterplan for Xiang’he Garden City is developed. A new garden city of approximately 700 hectares will arise close to the future 7th ring of Beijing. Within the first phase of the development a park is projected, closely related to the water basins that are a result of clay reclamation by the existing brick factories. A steep slope along the north side of the factories will be a result of these activities that will affect the park design, since on the north side of the basins housing development is projected.

Sharma House in Bangalore, India by Kamat and Rozario Architecture

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011

“Achieve a contemporary house with vastu compliance” was the brief for this renovation project.

The existing structure was a 30 year old typical Bangalore house with thick load bearing walls. Most of the outer walls were very close to the plot boundary cutting out a large amount of light. The neighbor’s house too was hugging the boundary wall in certain areas which cut off even more light.

Lucke Orozco House in Guadalajara, México by Hernandez Silva Arquitectos

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011

The house is located in one of the oldest residential colonies in Guadalajara, it is almost the only sheered area of a city that is mostly leveled, and this allows the place to receive good winds and to accomplish a great view from the second level at the nor-west of the city. The irregular shape of the space generates a sharp corner surrounded by the great foliage of trees that are already located on the sidewalk.

NIK in Graz, Austria by Atelier Thomas Pucher and Bramberger Architects

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011

Nikolaiplatz as it stands today was a process of conversional development which took its shape over a period of time. While the architectural style (as well as the desired building density) changed, the site layout remained stably constant. Due to the growing density in the immediate surroundings of the area, the requirements of a building on that site had to be adjusted over time. Today the heterogeneous urban situation requires a boundary of space on one side – towards Nikolaiplatz–, and a significant free standing form on the other side – towards Entenplatz.
