The Hawai’i Wildlife Center in Halaula by Ruhl Walker Architects

Saturday, August 27th, 2011

Article source: Ruhl Walker Architects

Anticipated completion, November 2011

The Hawai’i Wildlife Center is a non-profit conservation organization which will operate Hawai’i’s first wildlife recovery center when this building is completed in late 2011. Located in Halaula, North Kohala, on the Big Island of Hawai’i, the HWC is dedicated to the conservation and recovery of Hawai’i’s vulnerable, too often endangered native wildlife through hands-on treatment, research, training, science education, and cultural programs. The new complex will consist of three integrated and sustainably designed components: a wildlife care and response facility, an interpretive and outreach lanai and native species garden, and an open-air education pavilion.

Busan Opera House Proposal in South Korea by Weava Architects

Saturday, August 27th, 2011

Article source: WEAVA Architects

With the development of North Port also comes the exaltation of the city of Busan.  A resonating voice glorifies the city and its inhabitants, and the strength in the capacity of this voice to evoke thought, inspiration and emotion increases with each successive stage of development.  The voice carries forward throughout the world, ushering the city of Busan into a new cultural era while recognizing the history of the people who identify with it.  From the mountains embracing the city, an echo resounds across the community and recalls the beacon mounds, which have been traditionally used as a method of communication beyond large distances and are currently celebrated for awe inspiring beauty.  In North Port, the mountain’s echo joins the voice of exaltation in the design of the Busan Opera House, forming a harmonious relationship composing the new cultural voice of the city.

Extension of Gösta Museum in Serlachius, Finland by Dellekamp Arquitectos + Periférica

Saturday, August 27th, 2011

Article source: Dellekamp Arquitectos + Periférica

A line is a dot that went for a walk –Paul Klee

The project preserves the historical value and prominence of the original building by smoothly integrating it to the new museum. The new museum is a linear sequence of buildings scaled to the original building. Its thread of volumes not only has a light footprint but also confers an interweaving rhythm to its linear promenade. The space divisions functionally conform to all aspects comprised in the program. Interior and exterior, empty space and exhibit space, nature and building are connected through a series of passages, ramps and crossovers. The interiors offer interesting views and spatial experiences by playing on heights and light.

Article source: Barangaroo

Barangaroo is being built on a vision that embodies all of Sydney’s unique harbour city character – the perfect place to work hard, do business or simply relax and enjoy the view. This is the brilliance of Sydney – an international city that retains enough of its laid back character to genuinely enjoy the fruits of all that hard work. And that is the brilliant work life balance of Barangaroo.

New terminal for Stockholm in Sweden by C. F. Møller Architects

Friday, August 26th, 2011

Article source: C. F. Møller Architects

The new terminal for Stockholm’s permanent ferry connections to Finland and the Baltics will be a landmark for the new urban development Norra Djursgårdsstaden – both architecturally and environmentally. The terminal, which will have a facade covered with expanded mesh, recalls the shape of a moving vessel and the architecture – with large cranes and warehouses – that previously characterized the ports. At the same time, the terminal has an ambitious sustainable profile, characteristic of the entire development.

MADRhybrID in Madrid, Spain by Influx_Studio

Friday, August 26th, 2011

Article source: Influx_Studio

The San Francisco el Grande park project in Madrid is a particularly complex challenge where several critical constraints have to be merged in a balanced solution. The intricate topography, the need for public and private construction in a highly historical place and the various and incompatible claims of different actors (the city, the church, the land owner and citizens) are just some of ingredients of this project. The different positions and needs claimed by the various groups of actors who participate in shaping such a strategic and emblematic site as this seams to reach a breaking point: the Capital had to choose between building an ambitious program of public and private equipments and facilities, or as claimed by the neighbors, to build an urban park, both undoubtedly necessary for urban life in downtown Madrid. The answer has to keep in mind that the intervention is meant to complete the unfinished urban tissue of a central and most exceptional historical fabric.

Office 04 – Tribal DDB office in Amstelveen, Netherlands by i29 l interior architects

Friday, August 26th, 2011

Article source: i29 l interior architects

Tribal DDB Amsterdam is a highly ranked digital marketing agency and part of DDB international, worldwide one of the largest advertising offices. i29 interior architects designed their new offices for about 80 people.

With Tribal DDB our goal was to create an environment where creative interaction is supported and to achieve as much workplaces as possible in a new structure with flexible desks and a large open space. All of this while maintaining a work environment that stimulates long office hours and concentrated work. As Tribal DDB is part of an international network a clear identity was required, which also fits the parent company DDB. The design had to reflect an identity that is friendly and playful but also professional and serious. The contradictions within these questions, asked for choices that allow great flexibility in the design.

Fez Remix by Maxwan

Friday, August 26th, 2011

Article source: Maxwan

The idea of preservation of the site is less about the buildings themselves and more about the preservation of the programs in the buildings. The spaces are designed to allow users to see first hand the work of the craftsmen and women, in terms of the actual crafts, the process of making the goods, and the application of the materials as surface materials in public space.
