Fusillo: Social seating for public space by Marco Goffi (designed using Rhino)

Friday, November 18th, 2011

Article source: Marco Goffi

Looking at its form makes clear the functional point of departure that Fusillo aspires to: the “fauteuil conversation” a real place for socialising and cultural exchanges. With everyone comfortably seated in his or her own “space,” there is interaction, encouragement of relationships: this is Fusillo’s intention, created by Marco Goffi’s pencil around a section design. A three-pointed star, which with its simultaneous rotation and transferral movement generates the form, and the underlying support structure materialises. The “skin” of a living species in perpetual movement, an organic and functional sign, an interpretation of the multiple seating which offers the possibility of becoming infinite by adding more Fusillo-modules.

Tree House in Ljubljana, Slovenia by Robert Potokar

Friday, November 18th, 2011

Article source: Ravnikar Potokar Architectural Office

This freestanding house-by-a-tree is a multipurpose wooden play structure, standing on its own construction. It can be erected close to trees that are unable to support additional weight. This tree house, conceived with contemporary design principles, is not modelled on any of the classic tree house forms that take their inspiration from either real houses or garden sheds. Instead, children are offered a different understanding of shapes, new spatial experiences and new forms of play.

Artificial Topography in Kobe city, Japan by Ryumei Fujiki

Friday, November 18th, 2011

Article source: Ryumei Fujiki

Big Furniture Like a Cave. My idea is to hollow out the volume inside a container in order to build amorphous space like a cave. This “Artificial Topography” is made of only plastic material as same as my famous work “Aqua-scape”. About 1000 sheets of the soft plastic material of 10-mm thickness were cut down in contour line form, and were laminated like a stratum. This is not only art work but also one big furniture. Because all the portions are soft like a sofa, and person who enter into this space can relax by finding the place suitable for the form of its own body.

An introverted sculptural structure unfurling towards the ocean and the private courtyards within: a powerful dichotomy between intimacy and exposure. A design characterised by a formal tension between straight and curved surfaces and a dynamic roof gesture delineating the boundary between private and shared space. The brief called for a single family house located at the top of a residential area overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

Safdie Architects has announced plans for a distinctive example of re-imagined urban living, designed by Moshe Safdie for mixed-income use. Unveiled in Singapore this week by Capital Land Residential Singapore and Mitsubishi Estate Asia, developers of the project, the new housing complex will be located on a 129,137-square-foot site in the heart of Bishan Central—one of Singapore’s most significant outlying residential areas. The condominium complex will comprise approximately 509 apartments, across two 38-story towers, and will incorporate private terraces, many common public spaces, and sky gardens. The design has been evolved from Safdie’s groundbreaking Habitat ‘67 by the architect and his firm, in a series of recent such projects, also including Golden Dream Bay in Qinhuangdao, China.
