Open Lounge in Zurich, Switzerland by NAU Architecture

Sunday, June 5th, 2011

Article source: NAU

Raiffeisen’s flagship branch on Zurich’s Kreuzplatz dissolves traditional barriers between customer and employee, creating a new type of “open bank,” a space of encounter. Advanced technologies make banking infrastructure largely invisible; employees access terminals concealed in furniture elements, while a robotic retrieval system grants 24 hour access to safety deposit boxes. This shifts the bank’s role into becoming a light-filled, inviting environment – an open lounge where customers can learn about new products and services.

Situated on a compact sub-5 acre parcel in a developing urban area of Scottsdale, Arizona, the new Dial/Henkel headquarters is an innovative collaborative center, completely integrated into its broader context of the Sonoran desert. The building is conceived as a crystalline cloud floating over a desert mesa, a graceful presence at the prominent intersection of Scottsdale Road and the 101 freeway.

Family house in Lety, Czech Republic by Studio Pha

Sunday, June 5th, 2011

Article source: Studio Pha

The goal of the design was a house that would, in its size, level of comfort and architectonic conception correspond to the modest needs of a young family. The house is made of wood, with the basic load-bearing structure supplemented and further developed by the integrated interior. This approach allowed for the maximal use of space even in relatively small rooms. At the basis is a transparent, logical layout, with a sufficiency of storage areas in its contemporarily economical spatial concept.

The NYBILLBOARD in Brooklyn, Staten Island by Prechteck Architect

Saturday, June 4th, 2011

Article source: Prechteck

This proposal seeks for a way to add a new horizontal layer to Manhattan. An elevated link between towers, separated from traffic and noise, filled with public functions, bicycle lanes and walkways. The groundarea covered by towers will be given back to the public by integrating its roofs  to the grid of linking walkways, elevated gardens and public facilities and, as a unique aspect, it introduces public life into the skyline of Manhattan.

Cervantes Theater in Mexico by Ensamble Studio

Saturday, June 4th, 2011

Article source: Ensamble Studio

The Dovela (Keystone) is an air stone, the “Sun Stone.” The Aztec basalt monolith excavated in the Zócalo in Mexico City, means “Tonatiuhtlan de Ollin” or “Sun of Movement.” The god of the sun it represents, Tonatiuh, grabs a heart and expresses the need for continuity of solar time. The rays we can appreciate in this beautiful archaeological piece are the symbol of light, which we have to find through the discovery of what we are, what we feel and what we do. Tenacity and patience are required (Earth), also spiritual strength (Fire), capacity to adapt to different circumstances of life (Water) and mindfulness (Air). No wonder the Aztecs, Incas, Mayans, Egyptians, etc., identified the Sun with the universal spirit of life, trying to associate its physical characteristics with the spiritual ones. Thus, they would reveal the greatness of the intangible.
