The NYBILLBOARD in Brooklyn, Staten Island by Prechteck Architect

Saturday, June 4th, 2011

Article source: Prechteck

This proposal seeks for a way to add a new horizontal layer to Manhattan. An elevated link between towers, separated from traffic and noise, filled with public functions, bicycle lanes and walkways. The groundarea covered by towers will be given back to the public by integrating its roofs  to the grid of linking walkways, elevated gardens and public facilities and, as a unique aspect, it introduces public life into the skyline of Manhattan.

Cervantes Theater in Mexico by Ensamble Studio

Saturday, June 4th, 2011

Article source: Ensamble Studio

The Dovela (Keystone) is an air stone, the “Sun Stone.” The Aztec basalt monolith excavated in the Zócalo in Mexico City, means “Tonatiuhtlan de Ollin” or “Sun of Movement.” The god of the sun it represents, Tonatiuh, grabs a heart and expresses the need for continuity of solar time. The rays we can appreciate in this beautiful archaeological piece are the symbol of light, which we have to find through the discovery of what we are, what we feel and what we do. Tenacity and patience are required (Earth), also spiritual strength (Fire), capacity to adapt to different circumstances of life (Water) and mindfulness (Air). No wonder the Aztecs, Incas, Mayans, Egyptians, etc., identified the Sun with the universal spirit of life, trying to associate its physical characteristics with the spiritual ones. Thus, they would reveal the greatness of the intangible.

House in Fukuyama, Japan by Suppose design office

Saturday, June 4th, 2011

Article source: Suppose design office

The house in Fukuyama is standing at rising of a brae. where it has a panoramic view of Fukuyama city. The client wanted their house to open to the great view of the city, and on the same time, to close from surroundings for privacy.  For the two opposite requests, we designed the house considering a form of the site and its material use. Because the site was placed at lower level of a street, all rooms were put at the level to block neighbors eyes, and at the opposite side, it is fully open to the Fukuyama city.

East Beach Café in Littlehampton, UK by Heatherwick Studio

Saturday, June 4th, 2011

Article source: Heatherwick Studio

Heatherwick Studio was commissioned to design a new café building, capable of seating 60 people; to replace a seafront ice cream kiosk in Littlehampton, a traditional seaside town on England’s south coast. Exposed to weather and vandalism, the narrow site sits between the sea and a parade of houses. The studio saw its challenge as being to produce a long, thin building without flat, two-dimensional façades. The building is sliced diagonally into ribbons which wrap up and over the building, forming a layered protective shell, open to the sea in front.
