Tall Emblem Structure in Za’abeel Park, Dubai, UAE by Marco Acerbis Architetto

Sunday, May 15th, 2011

Article source: Marco Acerbis Architetto

XI ThyssenKrupp Elevator Architecture Award

The location of this new tower is a beautiful green area surrounding a lake and very close to the city. The proximity to the airport will give the new building an opportunity to be seen from the sky and not only from the earth. The landscape of the city area is mainly flat and with very strong sunlight. Climate conditions are typical of this latitude and are certainly extreme in some months of the year. A lot of time was spent thinking about what the best gesture for such a scenario would be. So that in one building I could respond to all area conditions and social expectations required by a new iconic tower. A particular thought was given to the experience that children shall obtain from a contemporary building.

Falkonergården by JAJA Architects

Sunday, May 15th, 2011

The objective was to create an expansion of the school and its gym facilities. We proposed an infill conceived as a contemporary interpretation of the existing building mass that connects and transforms the detached gyms into one coherent functional facility. The interior spectatpr stands and space is then extended into the courtyard, thus creating a continuous space where gym and schoolyard, building and landscape merges into an unified entity.

Temporary Kindergarten Ajda in Ravne na Koroskem, Slovenia by Arhitektura Jure Kotnik

Sunday, May 15th, 2011

In a small Slovenian town close to the border with Austria kindergartens unexpectedly became too small for the increasing number of young children and the existing kindergarten infrastructure had to be quickly expanded to meet the rising demand. The original idea was to build a larger kindergarten extension next to the old one, but this was a plan for the mid-term. In the meantime the authorities resorted to an efficient solution using ISO containers, which are quick to set up and cost-efficient.

Piazza Ricard Viñes in Lleida, Spain by Benedetta Tagliabue

Sunday, May 15th, 2011

The large green open spaces that surround the Seu Vella Cathedral and dominate the whole city are the most beautiful public areas in Lleida, and are what we chose as our reference point.  The designs for the new Ricard Viñes Square must possess some of this beauty.  The focus of our proposal is to build a large green open space for a sculpture dedicated to the musician Ricard Viñes.  A space full of little squares 0 5 10 cross section and green areas at a point where the city throngs with traffic and pedestrians.

A Vertical Cave in Nunavut in Nunavut, Arctic by Reza Aliabadi

Saturday, May 14th, 2011

Acting against gravity is a familiar Human desire, the most primitive form of body play that inspires many needs. The need to densification is not an exception. Vertical expansion is not only a solution to densify lands, but also a desire to be on top of every visible height. What if instead of the question of density the reason to create a tower was to respect a primitive joy: the joy of heights! Cities in the glory of skyscrapers such as New York, Tokyo, and Hong Kong are perhaps examples of many successful vertical densities, but what difference does height make if people who only share an address still see urban structures at their eye level.

Interior Design Camper store in Barcelona, España by Miralles Tagliabue EMBT

Friday, May 13th, 2011

When we were asked to designed a store we started to dream… Camper has much to do with “el campo”, that is the countryside, the fields… to walk in the fields… and so we imagined shoes stepping on irregular surfaces, like when we walk on earth.

IPOST Headquarters Building in Rome, Italy by Studiobv36

Friday, May 13th, 2011

The main starting point of the project is its strong relation with the urbanisation of the area, and its adjacency to a highly density block including Telecom building. These relations have pushed the project idea towards a dialogue with the urban scale, making the building like a “perspective block”, with a strong plastic impact.

Charcoal House in Toronto, Canada by Reza Aliabadi Architect

Friday, May 13th, 2011

Charcoal House, situated in Pape and Danforth neighborhood in Toronto, Ontario, is deceivingly presenting a raucous box. The randomly patterned square windows on its façade and the hidden entrance door at the corner of the building are elements that not only make it difficult to associate the building with a single family house, but they also trick the eye to an extend where the scale of the house is distorted and one might not be able to guess the number of floors inside. Although the monolithic façade, the black brick cladding, states an asperous architecture, the airy spaces within the black box reveals the true identity of its functional spaces. The house as the architect describes, resembles a “coconut” which is dark and hard on the outside, white and delicious on the inside.
