This project is a display case for a record collection. Vinyl albums have somewhat of a retro/cult status within contemporary culture that is generated from the unique sound it produces as well as the cover art that defines the packaging. The display case is designed in order to frame the collection and heighten its status as a cultural artifact within the domestic setting.

The Plano Classroom Building is a stand-alone satellite campus that contains classrooms, laboratories, student study areas, and support space within two stories.

Privacy and Community by Box Urban

The site was one half of a “semi-d” built during the 1950s on a left over site in a Victorian neighbourhood bounded by the sea and the train line. The building was well below current building standards technically and spatially. The layout of the interior and its relationship with the external spaces was completely contrary to the requirements of a modern family home.

Camp Nou Stadium in Barcelona, Spain by Foster + Partners

Thursday, June 9th, 2011

Article source: Foster + Partners

Home to FC Barcelona, Camp Nou Stadium is already the largest in Europe, with over 98,000 seats. The challenge of this project is to reinvent the existing stadium, enlarging it to accommodate 106,000 fans and provide greatly enhanced public areas and increased hospitality facilities. The project goes beyond a simple refurbishment to impact on the spirit of the place. El Barça is ‘more than a club’, and in that sense Camp Nou is ‘more than a stadium’: it is a symbol of the pride the fans feel for their team; a landmark for the city of Barcelona, and beyond that for the Catalan people.

The dynamic structure of pyramidal forms, which interchangeably open towards the north and the south is the basis of the entire complex. These elements stretch horizontally, equally through all underground and surface levels. Open spaces, narrow clefts, ramps and slanting ceilings enable communication throughout the centre, establishing a series of separate entrances, but also ensuring the possibility of airing and natural light in a large part of work areas.
