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.

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

Article source: Arturo Franco

The warehouse 17c has been the first intervention made in the Matadero complex and, as such, could be considered as a pilot trial. The project was born with two well-defined clients. On the one hand, the Council itself by means of its Arts City Council and on the other hand, by means of Intermediae and its programmatic constraints as the warehouse’s future tenant.

Hotel Zenden in Maastricht, the Netherlands by Wiel Arets Architects

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

Article source: Wiel Arets Architects

The Hotel and Sport School Zenden is located within three monumental town houses near the river Maas in Maastricht, the Netherlands. The hotel’s history begins in the late sixties, and originally contained only a pool for swimming lessons. Over the years other functions such as hotel rooms and a Judo school were implemented into the program. Upon the facilities reaching spatial limits, a renovation and reorganisation of the program was needed.

House Taishido in Setagaya, Japan by Key Operation Inc.

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

Article source: Key Operation Inc.

3 stories timber structure house built in a dense residential area in Setagaya, Tokyo. The 7x12m plot is surrounded by narrow street and alley, so it was required to set back the building façade. The ground floor volume is set back for 1.5m and the upper level pitched roof volume is set back further for 2m. Even this house has a descent volume, this arrangement makes it fit to the scale of the surrounding.

Shopping Roof Apartments in Bohinjska Bistrica, Slovenia by OFIS arhitekti

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

Article source: OFIS arhitekti
The initial task from the client was to build a new shopping mall on the plot of the existing one. Furthermore the new project proposed the use of the roof as an additional volume – new ski hotel apartments of different sizes. The wooden mass is located centrally in the village of Bohinjska Bistrica in the alpine area of Lake Bohinj. The village has beautiful views towards the mountains but unfortunately these were architecturally damaged in the 60s when a textile factory and set of housing blocks were built around them.

Bike sauna by H3T Architekti

How did Bike sauna come to existence?

The idea of creating a Bike sauna for city bikers came out spontaneously last year at a Christmas party of bike servicing outfit Bajkazyl at Rašínovo nábřeží. For that occasion we brought our older concept – sauna on wheels that can be dragged behind a car. That evening our sauna went through serious testing by more than 40 people. Everyone liked the concept very much, it was perhaps its greatest success yet. But we couldn’t ignore many calls for sauna that could be dragged behind a bicycle.
