Pilgrim Refuges in Jalisco, Mexico by Luis Aldrete Arquitectos

Sunday, November 27th, 2011

Article source: Luis Aldrete Arquitectos

Ruta del Peregrino Refugies

The strategy consists of a series of base modules which can be multiplied in order to give form to the project, and which make the project capable of adaptation and growth. The atmosphere makes sense when two kind of pieces made of ‘adobe clay’ color -which is one of the predominant colors of the region- configure space. One of them is an essential piece to perform a lattice perimeter at the buildings that reflect the play of light and shadows created by the roofs of oak leaves used in most of the rest of the surroundings, which contain a great deal of sensitivity and space quality.

Brooklyn Night Bazaar 2011 in Williamsburg, NY by JDS Architects

Sunday, November 27th, 2011

Article source: JDS Architects

Brooklyn Night Bazaar, a recurring nighttime market readies for the holidays with an extravagant showcase for independent artists, crafters, chefs, designers, and musicians in a 40,000 sq foot warehouse with 30-foot ceilings on the waterfront. Founder and Brooklynite Aaron Broudo was inspired by the Southeast Asian night markets — where a manic energy infuses with music as locals and tourists sample dishes and bargain for objects. Brooklyn’s version is a mega-pop-up platform that commingles indie music, handmade zines, homegrown jams, projected art videos and giant helium balloons.

Fukoku Tower in Osaka, Japan by Dominique Perrault Architecture

Sunday, November 27th, 2011

Article source: DPA

This tower project for the Fukoku insurance company takes inspiration from the profile of a gigantic tree whose roots proliferate on the surface of the ground. Splayed at its base, the tower’s outline tapers elegantly as it rises, gracing the city’s skyline with a vertical asymptote. The contrast between the structure’s base and upper regions is accentuated by the treatment of the building’s “bark”. Broad “wood chips” on the lower levels gradually give way to a sleek wall.

Quartier M Düsseldorf in Germany by J. MAYER H. Architects

Sunday, November 27th, 2011

Article source: J. MAYER H. Architects

Urban development block with a high rise for office, hotel, wellness and commercial use

In a three-level peer review process that resulted in two first-prize winners, an urban planning concept was developed for the area of what was once the post office on Erkrather Strasse. The so-called “Quartier M” is to serve as the future link between the Hauptbahnhof central station and Tanzhaus NRW/Capitol, becoming a lively city quarter for living and working. In addition to offices and a hotel, the trend-setting urban design also provides for both privately financed and government subsidized public housing.

Other plans include space for a day care center for children and service providers for the quarter.

City Municipal Office Complex in Bordeaux, France by ECDM Architects

Sunday, November 27th, 2011

Article source: ECDM Architects

Our proposal is for a unifying building, a building that represents both the Mériadeck neighborhood and the old city, that participates in defining an urban landscape and carries the values of a society more open to its environment. It was therefore around the creation of an open space, a space of convergence and exchange that we wanted to organize the program, a space framing the city, organizing open programs and services around the borders, a space animated by its users and actors. It acts as a beautiful and lively space, where the dynamism of Bordeaux is displayed for a close and urban administration.

Sunone in Bangkok, Thailand by Department of ARCHITECTURE Co., Ltd.

Sunday, November 27th, 2011

Article source: Department of ARCHITECTURE Co., Ltd.

Located among a low-rise residential neighborhood, a new location for a software developer–SUNONE presents designers with a great challenge dealing with quality of living for existing residence and working condition for the new comer. In order to preserve serenity of an area, respect privacy for each residence and simultaneously create pleasing working environment for staffs, pattern of horizontal screening was introduced to the project. Not only does it create visual barrier between inside and outside; allowing no direct sight from inside to surrounding residence, but does it serve as light filter generating array of light quality for interior space.

It consists of office buildings, laboratories and experimental energy research centre. The greatest possible degree of spatial flexibility was specified, in order to be able to incorporate new machinery and technical resources without interfering in day to day centre operations. Our primary intention was to create instantly recognizable buildings for the research centre that was vivid in its individuality, with flexibility being one of the key objectives. The architectural expression for the research centre has been inspired by the well organized computing system. As an artificial computing threading that run through the main facade.It also equip with solar tracking system to minimise the direct sun light penetration.
