HUIS-JCMZ in Chevy Chase, MD by Studio Twenty Seven Architecture

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

Article source: Studio Twenty Seven Architecture

Building on the foundations of a former brick Colonial residence demolished to realize this new pavilion, Studio27 worked collaboratively with owner Johannes Zutt to create a 2,500-square-foot house they envisioned as “a city in the garden.” Zutt, a peripatetic Dutch national, desired a modern domestic space with open plan living and minimalist detailing recalling the European architecture of Luigi Snozzi, Rem Koolhaas, and Pierre Chareau. Rooms are arranged within the house to form public and private spaces in the same manner that buildings are arranged in an urban setting to create streets, plazas, and alleys. The result is a contemporary dwelling designed using rigorous programming and critical logic to carefully evaluate the function and efficiency of every element within the home.

Backbone village houses in Podpec, Slovenia by OFIS arhitekti

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

Article source: OFIS arhitekti

Ljubljana is surrounded by numerous dense rural formations of different scales. Together by branching with the main urban core it forms the city. As the city is expanding outwards from the inner core,  the urban and rural formations are slowly dissolving together. With uncontrolled urban growth historical rural typologies are slowly losing their patterns, character and qualities. The village of Podpec is becoming a typical suburban area. Although surrounded by a wider green area with fields and wild nature, local resorts haven’t any qualities in the new built environment.

Breeze Engine Hostel in Southern China by Zoka Zola Architecture + Urban Design

Breeze Engine – Hostel, Company Retreat and Training Center
A showcase sustainable project for South China

“Breeze Engine” is a building in subtropical climate that is devel­oped as a large natural ventilation equipment – a motor-less breeze engine.

High Degree of Optimization

The project is developed to achieve high de­grees of optimization that are achieved through a series of inventions — similar to the inventions and optimizations leading to human flight from early gliders and flying machines to the airplane. — where characteristics, shape and use of each element is in a tight interdependent relationship with every other element. We believe that optimization, at its best, results in unique aesthetic qualities, ingenious and admirable technology — think Tesla’s induction motor, Eames chairs or gothic cathedrals.

On the Xi’an International Horticultural Exhibition the West 8 designed Garden of 10,000 Bridges has opened to the public. As both a distinct sense of enclosure and vantage points are provided, the Garden plays with the sensation of surprise. In the design advantage is taken of the strategic, central position of the plot, and views to other parts of the exhibition are integrated with those to the features of the park and surrounding landscape.

Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities in Hong Kong, China by HMC Architects

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

Article source: HMC Architect

The idea to construct the Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities as “a new Landmark to reflect Hong Kong as a vibrant global and metropolitan city” is an inspiring endeavor.  However some of the key elements in the design turn out to be a fixed precondition: the shape of the landmass and more importantly the infrastructure itself are not part of the design task… a missed opportunity!
