Oslo Central Station in Oslo, Norway by Jensen & Skodvin Arkitektkontor

Friday, May 27th, 2011

Article source: Jensen & Skodvin Arkitektkontor

Oslo S, or Oslo Central Station, is the most important station in Norway. For reasons of sustainability there is a desire to increase the importance of railway transport in the future, thereby increasing further the strain on the capacity of the already congested junction at Oslo S. Previous expansions have been haphazard and partly temporary, and the proposal aims to reestablish well ordered and ample public spaces that are well connected to the surrounding urban fabric.

Azzano-San Paolo Master Plan in Bergamo, Italy by Asymptote Architect

Friday, May 27th, 2011

Article source: Asymptote Architect

Bergamo, Italy—
Asymptote Architecture’s design for the Azzano-San Paolo Master Plan, a 100,000-square-meter commercial development, was recently unveiled at the MAPIC international retail real estate conference in Cannes, France. The site for the new master plan is an area south of Orio al Serio International Airport near the historic city center of Bergamo in Northern Italy. The master plan, as conceived by Asymptote, is a meandering and intriguingly articulated collection of surfaces that seem to have evolved naturally from the adjacent farmlands and calls for powerful, yet subtle, new architectural works placed on an urban plinth. Overall, the Azzano-San Paolo Master Plan is a signal for the possibility of such developments to be aesthetically compelling and architecturally dynamic.

Transformation of dijon mustard laboratory in Dijon, France by MVRDV

Thursday, May 26th, 2011

Article source: MVRDV

All over Europe buildings are empty and waiting for a new future. Transformations are usually all about the preservation of historically or architecturally significant parts of a building. In this case the building is completed in 2004 and the preservation act directed towards reuse. The disused building is a former Unilever Dijon mustard laboratory and closed in 2009. The building is in a good state but due to its wide volume not suitable for traditional work spaces. The construction budget is too low to exchange the façade or make serious alterations to the structure. A fine balance is needed between intervention and intelligent re-use of the existing.

Vertical Villages for European Snowbirds in Calabre, Italy by OFF Architecture

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

Article source: OFF Architecture

Every consideration on viaduct redevelopment must start with particular attention to the largest sense of its context1 as well as its components, both visible and invisible. It is of course essential to consider the site’ potential in order to integrate the project within its landscape; furthermore, to gain a deep understanding of every single component representing the milieu2, appears as a fundamental task for the development of such a project. We also have to be aware of the current international climate that goes far beyond the Calabre region, as it can influence, and maybe even develop the local scale of the Project.

Twirl in Milan, Italy by Zaha Hadid Architects

More projects by Zaha Hadid

 

This project is a contemporary interpretation of the architecture of the 16th-century courtyard of the State University of Milan,translated and transformed from rigid Cartesian geometries into the linear fluidity of dynamic space. Adapting to the natural contours of the courtyard and the forces that converge towards its center, the project emphasizes the slope of the arches, creating a powerful vortex of spatial distortion that favors dialogue with the surrounding colonnade.
