Rapid Type Coffee Pod in San Francisco, California by Otaplus

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

Article source: Otaplus

After months of research into why prefabrication has not been the glowing success people had hoped it would be, a design team at the California College of the Arts (CCA) has developed an answer: mix prefabrication and CNC technology with the current trend of mobile food trucks. Rapid Type: A Mobile Coffee platform is their first prototype for a mobile, pre-fabricated food service pod.  Construction was completed in the Fall of 2010 as part of a studio co-taught by Kory Bieg and Andre Caradec.

Pushkinsky Cinema in Moscow, Russia by GloMad

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

Article source: GloMad

A film, which is a series of still images or frames moving, or also we can say, this is a “fluidity of frames”. This project is an entry for the Pushkinsky competition located in Moscow. Designed by Gabriel Aranda and Alejandro Ramos. The idea consists in a new skin or façade thought as a sunscreen façade, that works as a barrier between the weather, and the original building. The façade is divided in tree layers: the original one, a curved glazed and a sunscreen façade.

Plug in Building in Barcelona, Spain by MiAS Architects

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

Article source: MiAS Architects

The 22@ district in Poble Nou (Barcelona) has been suffering multiple transformation processes recently. The blocks that Ildefonso Cerdà designed as part of the urban latticework of the Eixample were initially occupied by industries, workshops and eventually isolated residential buildings. Nowadays, most of the constructions have been demolished except those that deserved to be conserved due to their singularity. The gaps between the historic existing buildings have been refilled with new residential areas, hotels, offices and equipments.

Standard House in Pszczyna, Poland by KWK Promes

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

Article source: KWK Promes arch. Robert Konieczny

The project arose in untypical conditions: it was supposed to be built in two different places – near Pszczyna and in the outskirts of Berlin. As the second location was still to be chosen, the main goal became to design a house that fits every plot. This is how the idea of standard hOuse emerged, first such an attempt in the KWK Promes history. Round shape of the house makes it easily suitable to any given shape of the site, freedom in the choice of a roof type makes it universal in terms of landscape conditionings, while flexibility of interior plan adopts it to needs of an individual family.

Nuevo Leon 113 Complex by JSª Arquitectura

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

Article source: JSª Arquitectura

In a block where buildings catalogued by federal and local institutions predominate, we sought to emphasize the impact of this complex, moving away from the adjacent buildings and presenting the façade toward the urban intersection formed at the point where Nuevo Leon avenue turns, exposing the side of the building. The complex is formed by two volumes.
