Mosque Architecture by Iki Architecture

Saturday, June 18th, 2011

Article source: Iki Architecture


Transparency and simplicity which are the basic principles of Islam, are the most basic fundamentals that shape our proposals.

The habit for arranging the worshipping area with Qibla direction was continued to be organized in a square form. The surrounding for this square form should be a transparent “Glass Lantern”. So that an idea emerged to create a “glass prism” where the carrying blocks and surfaces are formed by the same material in which  the worshipping area will have an visual quality of the highest degree between the exterior day light and the worshipping area. In order to capture strong mystical ambiance, all the verses of the Quran were stamped on the transparent walls and ceiling surfaces.

Kloden in Hou, Denmark by Cebra Architect

Saturday, June 18th, 2011

Article source: Cebra Architect

Kloden is a 3.500 m2 extension of the Egmont High School in Odder Denmark – a school where mostly young adults live for a period of time in order to develop themselves and acquire new skills and knowledge. This particular school has a program for people with handicaps and some 50 % of the people attending the Egmont High School have some kind of handicap – they are either blind, mentally challenged or just missing a body part. This new extension is a sports facility for the students, but it is open for the general public as well. As such it must be a state of the art project when it comes to handicap friendly solutions as well as a new land mark for the school and the local town of Odder.

Second Second City in Chicago, Illinois by Stewart Hicks and Allison Newmeyer of Design

Saturday, June 18th, 2011

Article source: Stewart Hicks

This project contends with the competing and overlaid desires for the site of the McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago by creating a new tourist destination and scenario-planning infrastructure from the existing architecture. On the roof, a 1:25 miniature replica of Chicago is constructed. A clear mound protects the model, provides space for artificial weather equipment and creates unexpected visual connections between both Chicagos. Within the mound, the model acts as a simulator for various future scenarios.

Approached from its north façade along Whitton Avenue, owners, neighbors and visitors are welcomed to Mezzo through a native desert garden. Site benches and weathered welded wire mesh fences enhance this natural environment and define the exterior spaces of the project. Sandblasted concrete pale green masonry site walls work within this composition to further delineate shared and private areas.

Gold Street House in Brunswick, Australia by Kavellaris Urban Design

Saturday, June 18th, 2011

Article source: Kavellaris Urban Design

The Gold Street House responds to the rear lane way like character which consists of garage doors, timber back yard fences and at times neglected left over spaces from the terrace houses that front the opposing street. We felt that these homes (like many terrace typologies) abandoned the rear of their Terraces fronting Gold Street and in doing so over the years cultivated a language of gable/hipped roof building forms and utilitarian lean to structures constructed of light weight material such as compressed sheet; a very low tech economically driven decision.

Looking out, seeing people come and go while trees are standing still, witnessing the change of scenery season after season. Street poles spanning across the narrowest allies, providing mysterious connections between houses. Window view becomes an extension to the outside world. It measures time quietly.
