Bridge in Kiev, Ukraine by Maxwan

Tuesday, August 16th, 2011

Article source: Maxwan

As part of a park competition in Kiev – Ukraine, Maxwan resolved a missing gap in the primary pedestrian path. The solution goes beyond merely creating a bridge. It strives to create a signature place, within the park. It avoids any of the assumed formal or structural gestures. By doing so, it creates an almost non-bridge.

Lefevre Beach House Between Sand and Water

Conceived as the place where the arid Peruvian desert meets the Pacific Ocean, this beach house located at Punta Misterio 117 km. south of Lima, is an intervention where the integration of architecture and landscape was an important concern. Sand garden roofs act as the extension of the desert; lap and recreation pools connect the ocean with the house, while a glass box hangs from the structure symbolizing architecture between sand and water.

Ciné-moiré: Changing the Face of Pushkin Square in Moscow, Russian Federation by Barker Freeman Design Office (designed using Rhino, Grasshopper, and Maxwell)

Tuesday, August 16th, 2011

Article source: Barker Freeman Design Office

Our proposal for the historic Pushkinsky Theater creates a programmatic envelope for the existing volume that expands the territory of the theater into a series of enfolded layers and surfaces that connect the building enclosure to the plinth on which it resides and out onto the landscape of Pushkin Square itself.  The shifting angles of the new envelope knit together the two axes in the public space of the square:  the building’s frontal alignment with the park, fountain and Pushkin statue and its diagonal relationship to the Boulevard Ring angling away from it.
