Morro do Chapeu Residence in Belo Horizonte, Brazil

Sunday, August 7th, 2011

Article source: Walters-Storyk Design Group

Overview

How do you keep your pool house from reverberating like a gymnasium without draping heavy curtains on all the walls and windows?  For the owners of a luxurious villa set on the cusp of one of Brasil’s most breathtaking landscapes, the views and the pastoral silence were sacrosanct. A long expanse of windows surrounding the infinite lap pool draw attention to the spectacular mountain and garden views framing this weekend residence. The thought of echoed laughter and music disturbing this pristine environment was untenable.

Studio Daniel Libeskind’s design study was selected in February 2003 as the master site plan for the rebuilding of the World Trade Center Site. In addition to a towering spire of 1776 feet, the plan proposed a complex program which called for the construction of a memorial with waterfalls, an underground museum, a visitor center, retail space, a special transit hub and four office towers spiraling to the height of the Freedom Tower.

Figueroa Tower in Los Angeles, CA by Studio Daniel Libeskind

Saturday, August 6th, 2011

Article source: Studio Daniel Libeskind

The 1340 Figueroa Street residential development is a multifaceted composition developed within the current fabric of downtown Los Angeles. The development strikes a balance between the tall buildings of downtown and the large scale civic complexes like the neighboring Convention Center and the Staples Center. The location of the site, at the southern end of the high rise downtown district, allows the tower to create a visible marker, contributing to a new skyline for the City of Los Angeles.  Studio Daniel Libeskind is working with CA Human Technologies on the project.

Maria Theresien Strasse in Innsbruck, Austria by AllesWirdGut Architektur ZT GmbH

Saturday, August 6th, 2011

Article source: AllesWirdGut Architektur ZT GmbH

A redesigning of Maria-Theresien-Straße that does justice to the significance that the street has in the townscape of Innsbruck: the goal was to create an urban site with a rich atmosphere that invites strolling, hanging out, and meeting people. The identity of the site derives from the tension between urbanity and a panoramic view into nature, between past and future, bet­ween a specific character and a connective function in the urban structure of Innsbruck.

“City Futura” is a visionary urban design proposal for an expansion of the City of Milan set in the year 2210.

Our site is located in the North-West part of the city close to Piazzale Giovanni dalle Bande Nere adjacent to the Bande Nere metro train station. City Futura is superimposed over the existing city leaving most of its buildings untouched and tapping into existing infrastructure and expand it.

SoHo Synagogue in New York by Dror Benshetrit

Saturday, August 6th, 2011

Article source: Dror Benshetrit

The SoHo Synagogue is the community’s first ever synagogue and represents a fresh vision that translates the inspiration of Judaism to a new generation. With a forward thinking approach, Rabbi Dovi Scheiner along with his wife Esty, founders of SoHo Synagogue,built a religious platform that invites the community to fully integrate their religion within their modern lifestyle. Mindful of the open mindset of lower Manhattan’s Jewish population, The SoHo  Synagogue seeks to reinvent the synagogue as a comfortable and enjoyable setting for personal growth and communal connection. We were humbled and honored when receiving the invitation and assignment to create a space in which the synagogue can embrace the traditions and its fundamental function within a contemporary, casual design setting. On Sunday June 12, a long and festive procession of supporters and congregants dressed in white walked the neighborhood together to cut the ribbon and open the door to their new synagogue. The synagogue will hold both social gatherings and religious services.

Vallehermoso Sports Centre in Madrid, Spain by ABM arquitectos

Saturday, August 6th, 2011

Article source: ABM arquitectos

The site is located in a central area of Madrid, in the district of Chamberí. In this same place, until just a few years ago was located the Vallehermoso Stadium complex. Built in the 50’s, this complex included the locally famous athletics stadium and a number of complementary sports facilities. The installation closed to the public in 2007 and was demolished in 2008. Since then, the Town Hall is planning the construction of a new Sports Center (that is starting to become a reality after the selection of this project as the design winner) and a new athletics stadium that will be developed later on. The construction of the new Vallehermoso Sports Centre will start in 2012. It will be a gentle building in its architectural expression; it will embrace the city and it will interact with it creating a meeting point and an activity focus.
