Alcatel head office in Lucent, Portugal by Frederico Valsassina

Sunday, July 24th, 2011

Article source: Frederico Valsassina

The building appears as an isolated block, morphologically linked to the ones around it, with a distinctively contemporary architectural language. Using a volumetrical speech similar to the adjoining volumes, the new building is carved in order to soften and project its image to the outside. The form is enhanced as a project-asset, contributing for the intrinsic dynamics that is intended for the global proposal.

A sustainable agri-food system can be harnessed to realize enormous benefits to BC community objectives such as improving BC health, strengthening local economies, and reducing climate emissions. Planning communities in BC around food to create sustainable food and agriculture systems is not only possible, it is essential. “Foregrounding” food across this province is one of the top priorities for BC in the 21st century.”

The Red Sun Pavilion in London, Uk by Jean Nouvel Architect

Saturday, July 23rd, 2011

Article source: Jean Nouvel Architect

I’ve always considered architecture as a receptacle for sensations.  As the answer to an unspoken question, architecture’s main role is to create and transmit these sensations.  I immediately felt the Serpentine Gallery’s commission for a summer pavilion as a request to unearth little sparks of emotion.  A summer pavilion in a sprawling park… Oriental memories float to the surface.  Hyde Park, Kensington:  the simplicity and openness of these gently tamed expanses.
