23 Parks in Kiev, Ukraine by Maxwan

Saturday, August 20th, 2011

Article source: Maxwan

This project sets out not to create one park, but many great parks. Given the shear scale of the project the idea is not to create a singular grand vision, but to create a framework for thinking about the idea of a park that is intrinsically related to how to successfully implement the park over time. In reality, most parks are composed of a series of separate spaces that are somehow bound together. This design embraces that reality and showcases it. This diverse set of spaces combined with the four binding elements, shown raw, gives the park its distinct identity.

Teatro municipal in Lima, Peru by Luis Longhi

His wounds still open for attention, touched, but he did not want pity. Where was his stage was a huge void in the open. The roof and the platform had disappeared, but the energy of all the artists who had passed it lingered in the walls, so it was proposed to act in this space on a ramp. As a sign that he approved our idea, we discovered the building left a boarded door in the wall at the point at which the ramp heading. It was the pass that was needed for entry and exit of players.

Perforum in Tallinn, Estonia by Maxwan

Program as Inspiration

The building program provided the inspiration for the design. It is a collection of many different uses. Instead of trying to press all of these varying spaces with varying needs into one singular form, the design allows each component to take on its own form. This permits each programmatic element to work independently and efficiently. The varying spaces are not compromised functionally in order to fit into a certain form.

Moss House in Tokyo, Japan by Nendo Architect

Saturday, August 20th, 2011

Article source: Nendo Architect

This project involved renovating an old wooden house on the Shibuya River in Tokyo’s Ebisu neighbourhood into a live-work space. The house had accumulated some strange and wonderful features -an inner courtyard, an oddly long hallway, a tiny room- from a series of earlier renovations, so we decided to build on these earlier features, but also to “acclimate” the space to the new owner’s lifestyle. The hallway became a study, and the small Japanese-style room a studio.

Community center & sports facility “Pulsen” in Balling, Denmark by Park Architecture

Saturday, August 20th, 2011

Article source: Park Architecture

Design strategy

The brief called for a 3.500 sqm combined community center and sports facility with emphasis on sustainability both in construction and use. But rather than applying the traditional repertoire of green technologies to the building, after initial concept design was developed, the client called for an architecture that in itself embodied the idea of the sustainable approach. A precise objective that called for bold strategy.

Private House in Marupe, Latvia by Open AD / Zane Tetere

Saturday, August 20th, 2011

Article source: Open AD / Zane Tetere

The building was constructed around a growing body compositional center-inner gadren. The idea for this project was inspired by stylistic Japanese tsubo gardens. Often constructed in confined spaces, Tsubo gardens represent the essential elements and create the illusion of nature just outside or even intering the room.
