Hover House 3 in Los Angeles, California by Glen Irani Architects

Saturday, May 21st, 2011

Situated on the Venice Canals of Los Angeles, California, Hover House 3 represents the third in the architects’ Hover House series. This series focuses on maximizing outdoor living on small lots by ‘hovering’ the building envelope above the grade level in order to create space for outdoor living environments. This series proposes that interior living space be reduced in favor of less resource-intensive outdoor living amenities. As material and labor costs increase in the coming decades, increasing outdoor functionality while decreasing indoor area in temperate climate zones is one solution to the rising cost and over-consumption of building resources.

As such, the only representational media associated with this project comes in the form of working/shop drawings. It was never computer modelled/rendered because the forms were not preconceived, but the complex results of the simple process of making the physical artifacts.”

Venus Tower in Incheon, South Korea by OFL architecture and FUERALAB

Friday, May 20th, 2011

N FLOATING GALLERY

Venus. The concept design for the master plan and city tower of the City of Incheon comes from a single moment, an inspiration, hence, a re-discovery and re-interpretation of a master piece: Botticelli’s Birth of Venus. We strongly believe that contemporary architecture, today strongly attached with time and politics and socio-political issues, needs to also form a dialogue with the past. A dialogue not only understood as literal interpretation but subjective definition, a metamorphosis of form and meaning. We propose to base our design concept on the Birth of Venus, reinterpreting the act of birth, the birth of a new City that rises from a large body of water and a rich blend of cultural diversity: the cosmopolitan city of past, present and future.

Venus Tower

The Chimney House in Bosschenhoofd, Netherlands by Onix Architect

The Chimney House in Bosschenhoofd has a simple main volume with a rectangular floor plan and a saddleback roof. The plan is based on the fact that the chimney is a disappearing feature in architecture of this century.  This tempted us to create a house with several chimneys. The chimney has been used in different sizes and shapes and with different functions.
