SNCI Tower NYC in Manhattan, New York by Solus4 Architecture

Wednesday, June 15th, 2011

Article source: Solus4 Architecture

This iconic 950 foot tall residential tower is proposed for a micro- urban site in New York City. Designed by solus4, an architecture and planning  firm, the tower is a vertical neighborhood creating an efficient and valuable use for a small and otherwise underutilized water’s edge site. Uniquely, the tower is designed by solus4 using their SNCI principals (Sustainable Neighborhood Collaborative Initiative). Applying these principles to a vertical neighborhood requires the full engagement of the design team, the building team, the financing team and the owners.

Kyoai Gakuen University in Gunma, Japan by BAKOKO

Wednesday, June 15th, 2011

Article source: BAKOKO

Kyoai Gakuen University sought proposals for a new building on part of the campus’ recreation grounds. Our design response was to not to build over this existing amenity space, but to lift it to a higher level, supported by the building underneath. The site is also located adjacent to the school’s sports field which currently lacks spectator seating. By sloping the roof in this direction, the proposal could provide additional value by providing seating for sports events.

Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art in New York by Planda Architecture

Wednesday, June 15th, 2011

Article source: Planda Architecture

“False Modesty”
The project is located in a neighborhood of Manhattan that is in constant mutation. Many buildings have strong typologies in this area: like the New Museum by SANAA on the next block or the Blue Tower by Bernard Tschumi at the opposite end of the project.
The idea was to answer in opposition and to give it a minimal aspect by covering it with an opaque and uniform envelope. As a monolith, the building exists by expressing a clear introversion in a heterogeneous environment.
