Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine Visitor and Education Center in Baltimore, Maryland by GWWO Architects designed using SketchUp and AutoCAD

Wednesday, September 21st, 2011

Article source: GWWO Architects

Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine is the birthplace of America’s national anthem and one of the nation’s most significant historic landmarks. The Fort, the National Anthem and the flag, together and individually, help us to understand how the United States was created, defended, and preserved. It was with this context and these rich national symbols in mind that the design team, led by GWWO Architects, conceived the expression for the new visitor center.

Article source: AREP

Located in downtown Ho Chi Minh city, near the Saigon River, the programme includes a 68-storey office building with a shopping mall in its base. The outline of the tower, which is surrounded by a water feature, is reminiscent of a lotus flower. The platform of helicopters in door with forgery of 25 m reminds a petal of flower. The shape consists of a complex geometry, oblique cylinders taken back in facade with glass modules in curve and segmented. Its plastic aspect is strengthened at night by a white lighting which emphasizes the vertical leaf, the soffite of the platform and the pinnacle of the tower.

Coverage of archaeological ruins of the abbey of st. maurice in Switzerland by Savioz Fabrizzi Architectes

Wednesday, September 21st, 2011

Article source: Savioz Fabrizzi Architectes

The abbey of Saint Maurice was built almost 1500 years ago. It is situated against a cliff in a section of the road between Geneva and the Simplon Pass. This particular site was likely to be chosen for its defensive position given by the cliff.  However the planned fortification proved a failure due to rock fragments falling from the cliff onto the building.

Busan Eco-Center in Nakdong River Estuary, Korea by Atelier Tekuto

Wednesday, September 21st, 2011

Article source: Atelier Tekuto

Won first prize at the UIA certified international competition “The Eco-center at the Nakdong River, Busan, Korea” sponsored by Busan City in July 2004 with the basic planning starting in December 2004.  This was the first international competition sponsored by the Korean government, which held difficulties in many aspects regarding different standard and acknowledgement for architecture starting from receipt of the prize up till the completion of the building.  Large issues were the low design fees (which covered design fee for both Japan and Korean teams based on standard level cost which were on three level rates set up in Korea according to content of work, as well as business trips and translation costs), architectural regulations, contract conformation of architectural design (we could not become the legal contractor), and not being able to get involved in the actual field management.
