Pond House in Cave Creek, Arizona by Will Bruder Architects

Friday, June 17th, 2011

Article source: Will Bruder Architects

Imbedded in a dramatic rock outcrop overlooking a natural, year-round, swimming hole, the Pond House is a bridge to two unique and disparate ecosystems: the Sonoran Desert and its local riparian microcosm. As a modestly scaled 165 square meter weekend retreat, the Pond House also bridges the metropolitan intensity of Phoenix, thirty miles south, with an idyllic oasis of desert calm and contemplation.

Garden City

Oud Krispijn is a neighborhood in the city of Dordrecht. It was planned by Van der Peck in 1932 as a Garden City for the working class: a warped grid, small housing blocks, sweet little houses with front and back gardens, refined ‘corner solutions’, alleys and several ‘green’ axis and some modest squares. And a lot of hedges.

Landsbyhuset in Gyrstinge, Denmark by Cebra Architect

Friday, June 17th, 2011

Article source: Cebra Architect

The landsbyhuset in Gyrstinge is an attractor in a small community – a magnet for sports and social activity. Since it is a facility for the whole village, it is intended as a visual symbol that can be a part of a common consciousness. Thus the building should be a kind of magnet – a center that sucks up activity and functions from the surroundings to become a lively hot spot for the village.

Concrete House in Buenos Aires, Argentina by Vanguarda Architects

Friday, June 17th, 2011

Article source: Vanguarda Architects

The main feeling that the home conveys is a sense of defiance of gravity and space. With its large spans of glass that take advantage of the house’s relationship to the environment, the space seems almost larger than life.

Hangzhou Gateway in People’s Republic of China by JDS Architects

Friday, June 17th, 2011

Article source: JDS Architects

The concept of the building is to create a gateway that is neither closing-off or dividing the city. The 15-story tower features offices, restaurants, post office, a terraced roof garden and a sunken passage that leads through a shopping center. The rooftop terraces offer generous views to the distant nature while the stone louvers provide a sustainable solution to the office conditions. The building will become the gateway for the Gongshu District and an icon for the urban transformation of the old industrial neighborhood.

The Shops of Summerhill in Toronto, Canada by Audax Architecture

Friday, June 17th, 2011

Article source: Audax Architecture

The redevelopment of the Shops of Summerhill is comprised of a contemporary addition to an existing group of heritage commercial structures.  The project provided a unique opportunity to create an urban pedestrian environment which promotes human interaction throughout the site.  The design of the new addition takes cues from the original structures by creating a modulated threshold between the public and semi public spaces.  There are spaces for gathering such as the patio; spaces defining entry points such as areas under the canopies; and spaces for spontaneous use such as displaying goods along the building edges.  All of these offer users the opportunity to slow their pace, pause for a moment and reflect upon their surroundings. This diverse experience by the pedestrian is matched by the diversity of material elements of the facade which are all broken down into components based on the human scale.

Woods of Net in Ninotaira, Japan by Tezuka Architects + TIS & PARTNERS

Friday, June 17th, 2011

Article source: Tezuka Architects + TIS & PARTNERS

This is a permanent pavilion for a net artist, Toshiko Horiuchi Macadam. The artist knitted the net entirely by hands, which is designed for children to crow in, roll around, and jump on the net.  It was easy for us to see the artwork being outside even when it cannot be exposed to rain or ultraviolet light. We wanted to design a space as soft as the forest where the boundary between outside and inside disappears. The space attracts people like campfire. The children play inside of the net just as fire and parents sit around and lay on the woods.
