Retreat, Summer house in Hardanger Fjord, Norway by SAUNDERS ARCHITECTURE AS

Retreat, Summer house, Hardanger Fjord, Norway  (2 of 3- a series of summer houses)

Article source: Todd Saunders, Bergen & Tommie Wilhelmsen, Stavanger

This is our own personal project. We bought this site ourselves in order to create experimental architecture.  The constant question for young architects was how to find clients willing to take a chance on enthusiastic architects with little experience?  When we first started our firm, instead of going and looking for clients we went looking for a possible site to build an experimental structure. In this way we could pursue our architectural vision in line with our convictions: no compromises, original, and respecting the Norwegian landscape that we live in.  Once we made such a project, we knew that it would be easier to find and convince clients that we are competent architects through this use of a real life building as opposed to paper visions of architecture so common among young architects.

Northern Europe Migrants Organization in Calais, France by Felix de Montesquiou and Hugo Kaici

Friday, May 6th, 2011

The city of Calais, located at only 42km of the British coast, is the hottest spot of illegal migration in France. When Sarkozy closed the Sangatte immigrant center a year ago, we decided to react on the subject, in a very ironical and cynical way. This is when we decided to design an illegal immigration base.

Walnut Creek Wetland Center in Raleigh, North Carolina by Frank Harmon Architect PA

Friday, May 6th, 2011

The 7500-square-foot Walnut Creek Wetland Center is part of the transformation of over 50 acres of abused, polluted wetlands in southeast Raleigh, North Carolina, near the downtown urban center, into a living, natural resource for the city. By reclaiming the wetlands area, the Center promotes understanding and protection of an urban wetland, enhances community pride, and encourages economic development in this area of the city. It also provides an accessible “quiet zone” for communing with nature while preserving the natural beauty of the wetland, protecting the habitat of numerous species, and lifting the spirits of those who visit it.

Marina Beach Towers in U.A.E by Oppenheim Architecture Design

Friday, May 6th, 2011

Based on our initial reading of the site we took the opportunity to maximize the quantity of units on the beach. This approach has permitted the introduction of new unit types with the spatial adjacencies of a village. What has emerged, in addition to the typologies, is a response that is simultaneously building and landscape; a project whose fluidity merges sky and water. This allows for more varied living experiences beyond the capabilities of the normative tower. Basing the unit types on a standard module has allowed its shifted repetition to develop into the woven tapestry of the façade; a surface that responds to every nuanced shift of light, while providing critical protection from the intense sun.
