The architectural transformations of the Brooklyn Museum over the past 120 years provide a singular history of an urban institution adapting to changing times. Unwilling to remain static, the museum has evolved continuously, physically reshaping itself to respond to a rapidly unfolding city.

Hongkong and Shanghai Bank Headquarters by Foster + Partners

Thursday, August 11th, 2011

Article source: Foster + Partners

Conceived during a sensitive period in the former colony’s history, the brief for the Hongkong and Shanghai Bank Headquarters was a statement of confidence: to create ‘the best bank building in the world’. Through a process of questioning and challenging − including the involvement of a feng shui geomancer − the project addressed the nature of banking in Hong Kong and how it should be expressed in built form. In doing so it virtually reinvented the office tower.

Nestlé Chocolate Museum in Toluca, State of Mexico by Rojkind arquitectos

The Red Alebrije

Architecture as an experience. Sensory architecture, experienced through the architectural tour, through the surprises, the turns and the bends. Architecture as a challenge. The forms and spaces contained, as well as the times are pushed to the limit. Complexity and record time: three months to project and build. Dramatic and expansive architecture that reflects the frozen instant of trains crashing in the air.

Dining Womb by John Lum Architecture Inc.

Thursday, August 11th, 2011

Article source: John Lum Architecture Inc.

The Dining Womb was created for the 2010 DIFFA (Design Industry Foundation Fighting Aids) fundraiser whose simple brief was to create tables for dining, which were viewed and used by patrons during the event.   Typically dominated by interior designers who create decorative and theatrical table tops, we wanted to get beyond the superfluous, and focus on the critical elements necessary for a great dining experience; namely intimacy, intrigue and sensuality.  As architects, we wanted to create something that was rigorous and functional, with a strong conceptual, structured form.  Our brief required us to seat twenty individuals.


  • Architect: John Lum Architecture Inc.
  • Name of Project: Dining Womb
  • Project Designer/Manager: Bret Walters
  • Lighting Advisor: Scott Dumas, David Scott Lighting
  • Software used: Rhino 5.0, 64-bit for the 3D work and the Maxwell Render plug-in for rendering.  The workflow includes photoshop, Illustrator, and Vectorworks as well.

Pawling House in New York by SPG Architects designed using Vectorworks

Thursday, August 11th, 2011

Article source: SPG Architects

This 3,330 SF weekend getaway provides a private refuge for a NYC couple.  The house sits on 5 semi-private acres.  Its pavilion-like form nestles into a rise in the landscape allowing for the 2-story bedroom zone to seamlessly link with the main living areas, which contain living, dining, and kitchen functions.  A dining terrace and a private master bedroom suite garden are defined as exterior rooms by concrete half walls that are extensions of the main house form.  The gestural roofline slopes upward from the closed front facade to the more open rear facade and provides a sense of soaring relief as the occupant moves from the entry court to the expansive views beyond.

Party Animal in Praça de S. Paulo, Portugal by LIKEarchitects

Thursday, August 11th, 2011

Article source: LIKEarchitects

Regardless of its obvious architectonic and historic value and its central location in the city of Lisbon, the square of S. Paulo has been merely a passage site on the way to the underground clubs and bars on the downtown area – paradoxically marginal and desert in the centre of the city.
