Kindergarten 8 Units in Almeria, Spain by Los del Desierto Architect

Tuesday, May 17th, 2011

At an early age and instinctively, children identify the pitched roof with the house, hence their drawings: the roof, the box and, last, the doors and windows. A nursery is but a “big – house” in which they spend most of their time.

Aldar Central Market in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates by Foster + Partners

Tuesday, May 17th, 2011

The historic Abu Dhabi Central Market is one of the oldest sites in the city. Inspired by the traditional architecture of the Gulf this scheme aims to reinvent the market place as a contemporary mixed-use complex and give the city a new civic heart. By offering an alternative to the globalised ‘one-size-fits-all’ shopping mall it offers a distinctive modern interpretation of the regional vernacular. As a shopping experience it combines luxury goods shops with food markets and craft-based trades. Like the traditional souk, these different experiences are brought together in an interior architecture of dappled sunlight, vibrant colours and running water, with a changing rhythm of squares, courtyards and alley ways.

Puebla Library Park `South Heart` in México by Rondero Carpena Arquitectos, Luisa Marti, COR & Partners

Sunday, May 15th, 2011

Article source: Rondero Carpena Arquitectos

“Here, we stopped to reflect on the place, making an attempt to understand this sector of the city in an environment that has no soul, no color… it is a part of the city without definition, to be mentioned and try to define its homes, how living in this sector, how is the house where peolple live? … Accumulate synonyms are not. Playing the lottery ceilings, roofs, terraces: la choza, el jacal, el jacalón urbano, la cabaña, el tugurio, la cueva, el cuartucho, el cuchitril, la vivienda de la vieja vecindad, and then, the buildings, the flats, the residence, the houses, the rancho.  Makeshift houses in straying where others repeat their experience, ‘Parachute’ are. So call them. Invaders that arrive as the very dirt, a huge estate unjust poverty with no future ”

House Ocho in Carmel, California, USA by Feldman Architecture

Sunday, May 15th, 2011

Located in a nature preserve in the Santa Lucia Mountains, the site of oak forests and steep meadows strongly impacted and inspired Feldman Architecture’s design for House Ocho. In order to reduce the impact of the home’s massing and to preserve site lines, the building settles into the ground and overhanging roofs are planted with tall native grasses. The house is also divided up into a series of pavilions to lessen its overall mass.
