Located in Chelsea between 10th and 11th Avenues and situated between two other prominent New York galleries, this building is a secondary exhibition space for the Gladstone Gallery and was designed to house large installations of sculpture. Respecting the area’s industrial warehouse buildings, the façade is constructed of dark grey hand-cut brick of unusual proportions, laid with filled joints to underscore the monumental appearance. The façade features a large opening on the ground floor and ribbon windows on the upper levels.

Joenniemi Manor Renaissance

The Joenniemi Manor was built in 1935 by the architect Jarl Eklund. The floor plan and design of the building point to the clear influence of Functionalism and English country house architecture.The park and formal garden featuring geometric landscape elements are designed by Paul Olsson in the same year. At that time, this style of landscape was unique in the Mänttä village community. The Joenniemi Manor and its garden are symbols of the architecture in the early 20th century and express the cultural awareness in Finland’s rural surroundings.

Rongsheng in Shanghai, China by HYA/MYS and Shanghai Archi-Union

Friday, June 24th, 2011

Article source: HYA/MYS & Shanghai Archi-Union

Containing 2.8 million square meters of office, hotel, retail, and conference center facilities, the Rongsheng project will contain a city within a city. The mixed-use complex consists of two towers, for office and hotel functions, and a retail/entertainment podium. The towers are sculpted with a combination of concave and convex geometries that taper to give the towers a distinct profile. The curtain wall cladding strategy consists of a series of repetitive unitized curtain wall panels that appear to fade from the bottom to the top.

Port Phillip Estate Winery in Red Hill, Victoria by Wood Marsh Architecture

Friday, June 24th, 2011

Article source: Wood Marsh Architecture

Port Phillip Estate Winery sits on a spectacular, undulating site overlooking picturesque vineyards, Westernport bay and Bass Strait. Sited atop a ridge, the building unfurls across site, spiralling out of the ground and slowly rising to form the eastern wall of the structure. This abstract, sculptural form conceals much of the mass and various programme within the building, presenting a bold and simple gesture toward the road.
