New York Tower in One Madison Avenue by Studio Daniel Libeskind

Wednesday, August 17th, 2011

Article source: Studio Daniel Libeskind

The New York Tower project is a proposal for a residential tower at One Madison Avenue, overlooking Madison Square Park in Manhattan.  The design features a series of spiraling gardens extending the green of Madison Square along the facade of the tower.  The tower is set back from its neighbors – maintaing views and maximizing light and air.  The building is in its early stages and will reach a more definitive deadline when the proposal enters the public review process.  Studio Daniel Libeskind is working with Elad Properties on this project.

This is a residential project that has a unique garden at the front of the house. The building, located in a residential area in Kodaira-shi, Tokyo, was designed for 4 family members. The site is located in a place where it is directly connected to the public street.

Estádio Municipal de Paredes in Mouriz, Portugal by Spaceworkers

Wednesday, August 17th, 2011

Article source: Spaceworkers

Countering a trend of the current stadium, enclosing its green area inside, was what motivated us in finding this solution. The idea of “giving back” an acre of green space to the town was the main motto for this project. A solid block, which levitates into the landscape. A building which you can see and lets those who pass by see it, too. An open space to the city where football is the main entertaining agent.

Mourning House in Bosques de las Lomas, Mexico City by Pascal Arquitectos

Wednesday, August 17th, 2011

Article source: Pascal Arquitectos

This is a project with very strong emotional implications. We had to understand the mood of the user, who at such this moment would not care very much for an aesthetical analisis of any place, but at the same time we wanted to create a space that can create a spritual mood, for this we refered to ancient buidings that were designed for this purpose, as the Egiptian “Mastabas” or some Mayan buildings in Palenque.
