Rowing Center in Alange, Spain by José María Sánchez García

Saturday, November 19th, 2011

Article source: José María Sánchez García

The Rowing and Canoeing Centre is located near the Alange reservoir and tries to be as neutral as possible with the environment.  It is configured by a large pedestal and a light deck, creating between them a platform that dialogues with the landscape, looking over the water, the shore, the boats. It’s like a big veranda, a balcony, which focuses on the movements toward the reservoir, with paths that are created to “look” and to “stay”.

The apartments consist of a mix of 1 and 2 bedrooms with large outdoor terraces, drying areas, natural ventilation and an abundance of natural light. The upper storey apartments are two storeys. Planning codes required 30% of these units to be adaptable. Overall height was restricted to 3 storeys, but allowed underground car parking and an “attic” storey.

White Monolith in Mistelbach, Austria by LOSTINARCHITECTURE (designed using AutoCAD and 3dS Max)

Saturday, November 19th, 2011

Article source: LOSTINARCHITECTURE

In the rural Weinviertel region of Lower Austria individual examples of new architecture are generally introduced with caution and reticence. This makes it all the more surprising when suddenly, on a busy street in the densely built-up part of the town of Mistelbach (population 13,000), not far from the main square, you come across a white monolith that speaks a self-assured architectural language.

Poppodium De Vorstin in Hilversum, The Netherlands by Frits van Dongen, de Architekten Cie.

Saturday, November 19th, 2011

Article source: Frits van Dongen, de Architekten Cie.

The Sovereign pop venue is an icon for musical expression, situated at a prominent location in Hilversum. It lies within walking distance from the railway station, at a major crossroads in the inner-city road network, and is clearly visible from the train. As a consequence, the front on the Koninginneweg is the most important façade: it is The Sovereign’s visiting card.

Wetropolis images in Bangkok, Thailand by S+PBA

Saturday, November 19th, 2011

Article source: S+PBA

A Post-Diluvian Future

While most of the world follows the standard from dust to dust, ashes to ashes cycle, Bangkok prefers something wetter: from water to water. Almost 300 years after rising from the marshy banks of the Chao Phraya, it appears Bangkok will return to its watery origins. A recent UN study estimates that much of the metropolitan area will need to be abandoned by the middle of the century.

Bamboo Symphony in Bangalore, India by Manasaram Architects

Saturday, November 19th, 2011

Article source: Manasaram Architects

This Project is shortlisted in World Architecture Festival,2011
Development and environment are inextricably linked and must be nourished by a change in the means, the content and the uses of growth. Three criteria€™s to be necessarily retained are: social justice, ecological prudence and economic efficiency. As the repercussions and downsides of the western culture and architecture are being discovered and the world is turning towards regional technologies – two definite categories of Development are emerging -one based on the principle of recycling and the other on the use of natural materials capable of being used without requiring industrial processing. Mud and BAMBOO figure prominently in the second category of Development. Bamboo is a premiere building material in the new architectural movement with Sustainability and Integrative approach as its two important criteria. HIGH SCIENCE AND SIMPLE TECHNOLOGY!

Pio Baroja Nursery in Valencia, Spain by Rstudio/ Jose Martí

Saturday, November 19th, 2011

Article source: Rstudio/ Jose Martí

LEARNING BY PLAYING

The project consists of a one story building at street level.

The site is influenced by two conditions that have been key aspects in the development of the project. In the first place the closeness to a highspeed traffic way, in Pio Baroja Avenue, and in the second place the remarkable height of the surrounding buildings. This took us to create a building focused on its inner court.
