Jewelry Mayrhofer in Linz, Austria by X Architekten

Saturday, November 5th, 2011

Article source: X Architekten

The most interesting trends in the design of shops are concerned with the coherence of the products and their environment – thus the space in which they are presented. Furthermore do we understand shop design as a part of corporate identity, as an instrument of communication for contents and aims. The concept bases on the intention to define space as a sensually perceptive phenomenon and connect it closely to the jewellers manifacts.

This Project involves a single-family townhouse at La Encantada, a suburb on the Lima shoreline.  Given its sub-urban nature, the house design is nourished with the purpose of seeking the strongest relationship between the property’s constructed space and its indoor garden.

In our concept we created a place that is rooted in the original structure of the square but still up-to date. We also aimed to strengthen the connections of the square to its surroundings. Our main ambitions were to balance the historical and modern elements and connect the existing and new elements of the square in harmony.

Revitalization of the Chernobyl zone in Ukraine by Arina Ageeva

Saturday, November 5th, 2011

Article source: Arina Ageeva

The majority of people have an extremely negative idea about the exclusion zone around Chernobyl nuclear power plant, though quite a big part of this territory does not pose any radioactive hazard. Paradoxically, the absence of human activity created favorable conditions for animals and plants. For example, two Przewalski’s horses (which are in the red list of endangered species), after they had been places in the zone, bred actively and now they are 40. At the moment the territory is practically uninhabited, with the exception of few scientists, people who refused to leave their homes (their average age is around 60), and tourists.

WestendGate in Hamburger-Allee, Frankfurt am Main by Just Burgeff Architekten

Saturday, November 5th, 2011

Article source: Just Burgeff Architekten

WestendGate, also known as the Marriott Hotel, is currently being extensively modernized by Just/Burgeff Architekten. At 159 meters and 47 storeys, the original structure was for a short time the tallest high-rise in Germany. Built in 1976 by the architect Richard Heil in the Westend of Frankfurt am Main, the building became the path breaker for high-rise construction in the whole district and the rest of Frankfurt. Since the Marriott Hotel Group moved there in 1989, it is still the highest hotel in Europe. It occupies the top 18 of the 46 storeys of the three wing structured existing building. It has its own lobby on the ground floor and uses the second floor for a ball room.

TRILUX Pavilion in San Francisco, California by Future Cities Lab (designed using Rhino, Grasshopper, and Kangaroo)

Saturday, November 5th, 2011

Article source: Future Cities Lab

TRILUX is an experimental pavilion constructed out of three vertical wooden lattice structures. It creates an illuminated beacon anchoring the corner of the site and inviting the neighborhood to participate in the museum activities that take place inside it. TRILUX is fabricated by combining traditional steam-bending techniques with CNC milled and laser cut components. The south faces of TRILUX host hundreds of curved spiked shade quills. Visitors view the sky through three unique woven oculi and in the evening lights illuminate the interior lattices.

All-Weather House in Mullingar, Ireland by ROEWU Architecture

Saturday, November 5th, 2011

Article source: ROEWU Architecture

ROEWUarchitecture based in London, UK have recently completed a single family home for a retired couple in Ireland. Following the design philosophy developed by the office it was essential to consider all the natural factors impacting the building including wind, rain and sunlight. Instead of treating the building as a defensive shelter, the weather conditions of each season are embraced. A folded organic coat made up entirely of cedar shingles wraps every surface of the building (roof and walls) without interruption. This consistent, arrayed material changes with the climate –glowing and fading with the durations of the weather and the seasons. On wet days it is a bright red colour fading to a soft grey when dry. In frost the individual shingles become outlined in white while in sunshine the folds of the surface become accentuated. The buildup of the surface form multiple individual pieces gives these transformations a pixelated appearance –a kind of digital organic effect.
