Article source: Frederico Valsassina

Oporto, and its people, express themselves visually in architecture, the architecture of the city, plastic synthesis of the local culture, where the architectural events are the events of the city and its people. Bearing in mind that, with time, Oporto as acquired the expression of a continental type european city in an country of mediterranean expression and culture. The colour and the main characteristics of the building materials of the city, the absorption form of the light and reflexes, the rhythm and the layout of the street plans, the proportion pattern in the openings on the facades, all brings closer the image of the city to the urban agglomerations of the Northern European countries more than Lisbon, the south or the Mediterranean capitals.

Candela House in Soto de Dego, Spain by Zigzag Arquitectura

Wednesday, July 27th, 2011

Article source: Zigzag Arquitectura

A family meeting place.
The starting point was the need for a house large enough for the variable and regular  meeting of a family composed of 6 subfamilies,  with a total of 10 adults and 8 children. The idea was to create a family shelter, a place to meet and escape from urban life, with a low budget and the scarce construction resources available in a relatively isolated location.

Nestlé’s Chocolate Museum in Sao Paulo, Brazil by Metro Arquitetos Associados

Wednesday, July 27th, 2011

Article source: Metro Arquitetos Associados

The intention in designing the structures of the public visiting of the Nestlé chocolate factory is to make a generic landscape of the highway that link Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, the biggest Brazilian cities, revealing the presence of an area of visitation. This visibility is done by building towers to access the new route, in glass and steel, which in addition to the strong brand exhibition resolve the conflicting currents between production and visitation. The structural geometry and the materials used are designed to provoke a sensory and perceptual experience, and contribute to the seizure of information about the history and production of chocolate spread along the route.

Wednesday, July 27th, 2011

Article source: SPEDstudio

The stereotype of the “tool shed”, made with old sheets and used material as a collage of different volumes at different times, is revised and distorted in a continuous process of intensification and citation. The symmetry of the gable is broken along the ridge line to leave space for a long blade of light that provides excellent visual quality to the owner.
