Waubonsee Community College Classroom Building in Plano, Illinois by Holabird & Root

Thursday, June 9th, 2011

Article source: Holabird & Root

The Plano Classroom Building is a stand-alone satellite campus that contains classrooms, laboratories, student study areas, and support space within two stories. The design team was challenged to create the experience of a traditional multi-building campus within a singular building– a facility that would have its own identity while extending the mission and vision of the College to the surrounding community.

Privacy and Community by Box Urban

Thursday, June 9th, 2011

Article source: 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.

A tree hotel in the far north of Sweden, near the small village of Harads, close to the polar circle. A shelter up in the trees; a lightweight aluminium structure hung around a tree trunk, a 4x4x4 meters box clad in mirrored glass. The exterior reflects the surroundings and the sky, creating a camouflaged refuge. The interior is all made of plywood and the windows give a 360 degree view of the surroundings.

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.

In 2006, Design Army, an accolade laden Washington DC graphic design firm looked for a new space to locate its growing business. After a concentrated search, Design Army was able to purchase an abandoned and dilapidated building in the City’s NOMA (North of Massachusetts Avenue) District. Destroyed in the riots of 1968, the NOMA District had laid dormant for over 30 years before being identified as a focus redevelopment zone in the City’s master plan.

6×11 Alpine hut in Stara fuzina, Slovenia by OFIS arhitekti

Thursday, June 9th, 2011

Article source: OFIS arhitekti

This hut is situated in a small Alpine village, part of the Triglav national park with very strict rules on construction and architectural design. The client bought the site together with an existing construction permit for a generic project. The demand of the client was not to change the construction permit but to change the elements of the house to suit his family – to position the openings toward the views and to increase its sustainability.

Farewell Chapel in Krasnja, Slovenia by OFIS Arhitekti

Thursday, June 9th, 2011

Article source: OFIS Arhitekti

The farewell chapel is located in a village close to Ljubljana. The site is positioned next to an existing graveyard. The chapel cuts into the rising landscape and the building shape follows the natural contours of the land around the graveyard. The program comes together with the three embracing curved walls which divide the space. The external curve divides the chapel plateau from the surrounding hill and also reinstates the main supporting wall. Service spaces, such as storage, wardrobe,  restrooms and kitchenette are all placed along the back wall.

Taipei Performing Arts Centre in Taiwan by NL Architects

The dichotomy between high and low culture is disappearing. But can we create an environment that is inspiring for everyone? Is it possible to be elitist and populist at the same time? How can we envision a truly Public building?
