Camp Arowhon Headquarters in Toronto, Canada by PLANT Architect

Sunday, July 31st, 2011

Article source: PLANT Architect

Camp Arowhon is a family-run summer camp in Algonquin Park now run by its third generation director. The owners purchased a 250 m2 two-story storefront building on Eglinton Avenue West to create a visual presence in the community, facilitate administration, and create a place which fosters a post-camp alumni community. The owners’ goal was to present a building that felt like “a piece of Algonquin Park in the city” evoking the character of camp, while wanting to avoid the typical camp imagery overused by spas and clothing retailers. The character was established instead through the use and detailing of materials: using harvested raw and rough hewn wood from the park, and detailing it with a more polished, but simple elegance found in camp buildings.

Panama Supercharge by BikaArchiTexture

Sunday, July 31st, 2011

Article source: BikaArchiTexture

“Panama Supercharge” is an architectural dialogue between mass and fragility, expressed as thin patterned developable surfaces out of metal sheets and heavy masses out of raw concrete. The building is adjacent to the new pair of locks at the Panama Canal, creating an environment for cruise ship passengers while they are waiting for the ship to pass the lock.

East 6th Street House in South Boston, MA by Touloukian Touloukian Inc.

Sunday, July 31st, 2011

Article source: Touloukian Touloukian Inc.

This speculative development was built on a rear parcel with restricted views to the street, code restricted openings for windows, and less desirable views of the adjacent lots. The design re-directs the focus to an interior environment with a sun filled “skylight stair hall” and “rear light shaft” that brings natural light to all corners of each floor.

House located on the west edge of the plains. In this district, Mt. Yahiko and Mt. Kakuda above sea level about 600m as regional landmarks stand between plains and the Sea of Japan.

Providence River Pedestrian Bridge in Rhode Island by inFORM Studio

Friday, July 29th, 2011

Article source: inFORM Studio

The Providence River Pedestrian Bridge is a unique urban proposal in that the basis of its proposition is an exchange of transit medium. The relocation of a substantial, vehicular only conduit in favor of a pedestrian oriented connector will completely transform the spatial character of the Jewelry District/Old Harbor. Given this significant urban transformation, the project should envision a potential much larger than a pure connector. The proposed Providence River Pedestrian Bridge can become a spatial mediator between urban and ecological spaces and function as an integrated series of programs into the waterfront public spaces, allowing east and west to become a singular meandering public space. With this perspective, the proposal is better understood less as a bridge and more as an urban intervention. Additionally, the re-invigorated entrepreneurial spirit of Providence is poised to weather the global economic downturn with a future vision for the emerging Knowledge District and potential new biomedical corridor. The face of this future is one of innovation, intellectual fervor and progressive thinking. A project of this magnitude needs to reach out to this “creative class” and “knowledge economy.”

Rectangle of light in Sapporo, Hokkaido by Jun Igarashi Architects

Friday, July 29th, 2011

Article source: Jun Igarashi Architects

The parcel is located in the north of a city named Sapporo, where the housing block is split like a grid. Surrounded by 3 buildings, a tiny parcel that contains about 100 sq. meters was left over. On the east side of the building, there is a promenade with an old growth poplar forest who acts as a windbreaker. It hasn’t a direct influence over the parcel itself, but it indirectly contributes the building standard law, what causes an inevitable set back distance, so it comes to a 40 sq. meter amount of space on the inside of the parcel. I designed the space for the couple and their two children, with thinking about the height of the building
