Suspended Glazed Bridge (Lugner Bridge) in Vienna, Austria by Aneta Bulant – Kamenova and Klaus Wailzer (designed using AutoCAD)

Friday, October 7th, 2011

Article source: Aneta Bulant – Kamenova and Klaus Wailzer

Project description: The presented object is may be the world–wide first fully glazed suspended bridge. The bridge takes the pedestrians, coming from the historical Otto Wagner metro station up along an escalator to a horizontal platform 8,5 meters over the most frequented boulevard in Vienna, the `Gürtel`. From there one can reach the cinema and shopping center “Lugner City”. Through series of interconnected buildings this multifunctional complex forms a strong pedestrian axis which reaches up to the nearby City Sport Hall and represents a much frequented urban connection. Being the first entering element of this axis the bridge plays the role of a landmark for that big complex. We decided to make it dynamic, light and attractive, like a funny flying object, which hovers over the pulsing city.

The house the client was born and raised. Now, only his parents live there. There is a space where contiguous with the house. We did our architectural planning for this newly married client couple by using the space. The main building the parents live is old and heavy undressed concrete. The style has become a familiar nowadays, but that must have attracted a great deal of attention at that time.

Fort Cortina in Amsterdam, The Netherlands by Karelse & den Besten

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011

Article source: Karelse & den Besten

As a graphic design agency we already had a long cooperation with Cortina, a wholesale in gift items, before they asked us to design their new headquarters. It was our first architectural assignment.  Fort Cortina is built on the premises of the NDSM-wharf, a former shipyard located on the banks of the river IJ in Amsterdam. In this harsh environment we designed an office and warehouse building that looks like a Morrocan fort. A monolithic structure, rough on the outside with metallized brick walls and smooth on the inside patios that are lined with cedar wood.

Apollo 11 in Santiago, Chile by Parra + Edwards Architects Designed using Vectorworks

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011

Article source: Parra + Edwards Architects

Secluded forest retreat.

“The woods are lovely. Dark and deep” -Robert Frost.

Apollo 11 is a house/studio situated in the middle of a forest of native trees on the outskirts of Santiago at the foot of the Andean cordillera. It was designed as a ‘ship’ that could land in the forest and then later depart, leaving the forest untouched, hence the name Apollo 11. There is also the intent for the space to serve as a laboratory; the house is used as an architecture studio, a rehearsal space and a recording studio for electronic and acoustic music. It is a capsule that has been designed to support its crew – a family of architects and musicians.

Film Theatre of Catalonia in Barcelona, Spain by Mateo Arquitectura

Headquarters of the new Film Theatre of Catalonia in the Raval district of Barcelona, First prize, public competition 2004

The ruins mark the structure of the buildings. The Roman forum formalizes the plane of foundations and drains. In the old town, my building sets out to express itself as pure structure—no cladding, no finishes. The bare concrete beams-cum-walls that form the façades are very varied, proving themselves members of the family of the dilapidated neighbouring walls, where plaster crumbles to reveal their original central mass.

Patricia lane house addition in Hudson Valey, New York by Martin holub architects Designed using AutoCAD

An addition to a house Martin Holub Architects designed 15 years ago (1997) on a wooded hilltop in the Hudson Valey, New York. At the time, we had no idea that we had ever be asked to design an addition to that house. Still because of the strong geometry of the original house, the addition had, practically, designed itself.
