Depot Zollverein in Essen, Germany by Ahlbrecht Felix Scheidt Kasprusch (designed using ArchiCAD)

Neubau Depot und Verwaltung RUHR MUSEUM in Essen

Depot and Administration RUHR MUSEUM on the world heritage Zollverein, Essen

An extreme restraint for all structural addition within the context of the world heritage – the colliery of Zollverein with all architectural qualities and inestimable historic values – is indicated. The course of the design for the new depot of the Ruhr Museum was based on serenity and mastery. Clear geometry and decreased material selection were ways and methods for the design. On the one hand, the building is positioned into the correct context, on the other hand it abstracts and sublimates this context.

Erie Street Plaza is a small urban plaza in the Historic Third Ward district of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The 13,000-square-foot plaza lies at the point where the Milwaukee River meets the Federal Channel as it empties into Lake Michigan. It is the final link in a series of public space activators along the Milwaukee Riverwalk, a three-mile pedestrian and bicycle corridor that connects downtown Milwaukee to the emerging and redeveloping Third Ward, Beerline Districts, and the lakefront beyond.

São Bento Residence in Belo Horizonte, Brazil by Anastasia Arquitetos

The residence is situated in a 15 x 56 sloping urban site (it is not a condominium). The land has a direction east / west, with the best view to the east, and the entrance to the west. The idea was to get the most possible exposure of the intimate area, on the second floor, to the morning sun, and also to the best sight. The solution was to extend the floor diagonally on the lower floor, creating a terrace for the intimate area, so that all bedrooms face east, which would not be possible if all were side by side.

Monconseil Sport Hall in Paris, France by Explorations architecture + Integrale 4 engineers

Thursday, October 13th, 2011

Article source: Explorations architecture + Integrale 4 engineers

Explorations architecture has just completed the Monconseil sports hall in Tours, 150km southwest of Paris. This public building is exemplary of Explorations’ approach to sustainable design. The project emphasis is on natural light, the innovative use of natural materials and renewable energy:

  1. The northern facade is fully glazed in order to avoid the use of electrical lighting in the main hall.
  2. The composite suspended timber/steel roof spans close to 50m to allow for future uses.
  3. The southern facade is clad with a photovoltaic “brise-soleil” in order to reduce energy consumption from the grid.

Many towns in Denmark have centrally-located industrial silos; most are no longer in use, but continue to visually dominate the local skyline. This is also the case with the town of Løgten north of Aarhus, where the former silo complex has been transformed into a ‘rural high-rise’, with 21 high-quality residences composed as individual and unique ‘stacked villas’.
