Sheik Zayed Library, Dubai Seven in UAE by Cheungvogl

Sunday, May 22nd, 2011

Metaphorically, the structural design is rooted deeply into the ancient culture of Dubai. Respecting traditional disciplines and incorporating the significance of organic forms, symbols and patterns, the design seeks to redefine traditions as well as continues to test new boundaries for the future. As we critically question the ‘whys’ and ‘how’s’, finding the reasons for everything, there is no room for imitations. This symbol must be a unique phenomenon – a flower growing out of the desert ground. Following the rational thinking of looking deeper into nature and plant structure such as bamboo, we understand that the structure is made up of multiple strands of fibre, tightly knitted together.

Eden Apartments in Sydney, Australia by Tony Owen Partners

Sunday, May 22nd, 2011

The latest building by Tony Owen blurs the line between architecture and urban billboard. Work has commenced on the EDEN apartments in Sydney. This infill project is located in a varied and complex part of the Sydney cityscape and is visible from many vantages. The office sought to explore the possibilities of adding to the tapestry as a piece of art in the urban landscape. In a unique approach, the final image was chosen from an on-line poll of various options to allow the public to decide the streetscape of their city.

Mikve Rajel in Lomas de Tecamachalco, México by Pascal Arquitectos

Sunday, May 22nd, 2011

The Mikve is the  ritual bath of purification in the Jewish religion.  It is possible diving in fresh spring water, or in a place specially dedicated to it, fed by rainwater that must be collected, stored and communicated to the vessel that is called a Mikve. All this must be made under a very strict set of rules related to the degree of purity of water. These rules also include the use of materials, architectural measures and water treatment.

Living Roof in Berlin, Germany by NAU Architect

Sunday, May 22nd, 2011

The Living Roof offers you the essence of the city. It condenses all the functions of daily life into a compact and selfsustaining capsule, intended for urban rooftops, but ready to be airlifted into the savanna at short notice. The minimal interior allows for concentrated thought and recuperation, while the highly efficient enclosure helps resolve one of the paradoxes of modern life: the contemporary citizen seeks mobility, but also wants to tread softly on the environment. For just this sort of traveler, NAU has designed the Living Roof, the first short-term housing unit to produce more energy than it consumes.

Kuggen in Lindholmsplatsen, Sweden by Wingårdh Arkitektkontor

Sunday, May 22nd, 2011

Kuggen is nestled in among Lindholmen’s big office buildings, like a colorful blossom surrounded by gray leaves. Its form and color are not immediately revealed. The round building looks different from every direction. The upper floors project out over the lower—more on the south side than on the north, so that the building partially shades itself when the sun is high in the sky. A rotating screen shades the top floors, following the sun’s path around the building. These details change the building’s character from one side to another, and over the course of the day. Finally, its brocade of glazed terracotta panels takes on different appearances depending on our viewing angle and the changing daylight conditions.

Résidence Jules Mousseron in Noyelles Godault, France by OFIS arhitekti

Sunday, May 22nd, 2011

This project is part of a competition for a low cost mixed type housing development in the North East of France. It is a social development aimed towards the elderly and young families. The provision of individual housing and group housing meets the requirements of the urban project and aims to maximize the potential of the site. It is inspired by the traditional brick architecture in the surrounding area. Just like the traditional houses the proposal has tried to visually break down the scale of the development through the use of varying roofs and heights, to offer a more humane and people friendly rhythm. The heights of the buildings and their distribution on the site also follow a logical environment to maximize natural lighting, ventilation and views. This difference in height creates a dynamic urban pace on the street. The roofs are taken from the surrounding area and have been reworked sustainably, their design visually creates a real impression from the street, and captures solar energy fulfilling its functions and creating a contemporary environment.

Brewer’s Gate in Columbus, Ohio by Jonathan Barnes Architecture and Design

Sunday, May 22nd, 2011

A dilapidated, vacant, 60’s era manufacturing building on a one-acre block in an historic urban neighborhood was replaced with 35 townhouses in five buildings.  The project responds to its urban context with separate buildings oriented perpendicular to the street, continuing the rhythm of the adjacent houses.  This arrangement creates alternating garden courts and auto courts, separating vehicular and pedestrian access and bringing green spaces to the interior of the block.
