Sustainability currently shares many qualities with God; supreme concept, omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient; creator and judge, protector, and (…) saviour of the universe and the humanity. And, like God, it has millions of believers. Since weWwW humans are relatively simpleminded and suspicious and need evidence before belief can become conviction, Green has come to represent sustainability; has become its incarnation in the human world. But sustainability, like God, might not have a form, nor a colour…

The building doesn’t make head to the topography, but interprets it has a possibility of integration in the landscape. It belongs to the site thanks to the use of materials and construction techniques, thanks to camouflage and topography.

Rolex Learning Center in Lausanne, Switzerland by SANAA

Saturday, June 25th, 2011

Article source: SANAA

Built on the campus of Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), The Rolex Learn-ing Center functions as a laboratory for learning, a library and an international cultural hub for EPFL, open to both students and the public. Spread over one single fluid space of 20,000 sq meters, it provides a seamless network of services, libraries, information gathering, social spaces, spaces to study, restaurants, cafes and beautiful outdoor spaces. It is a highly inno-vative building, with gentle slopes and terraces, undulating around a series of internal „patios‟, with almost invisible supports for its complex curving roof, which required completely new me-thods of construction. The building opened this year to the students and public on the 22nd of February and was inaugurated on May 27th, 2010.

Barceloneta in Spain by MiAS ARQUITECTES

The Market in a Neighbourhood called l’Òstia

When I was a student at the Barcelona School of Architecture (ETSAB), Barceloneta was the subject of much conversation. Restaurants on the beach which later disappeared… narrow streets, cramped flats, the clothes hanging out on the balconies, the shops, the artisans’ workshops… and its people, who talked, and still talk, fast and loud.
