The design for the “Wafra Living” complex, consists of a high rise building set back from the street and an L-shaped building defining the street edge, conceived to maximize privacy within the community, whilst providing ample natural light and usable indoor and outdoor common spaces. Cuts have been made in the front building in order to provide better views for the lower floor apartments in the back tower.

Hanimaadhoo International Airport in Maldives by Integrated Design Associates

Thursday, November 17th, 2011

Article source: Integrated Design Associates

The new airport, designated as the country’s second international gateway, is located on an island with very limited land mass for an international airport of this size. With airfield infrastructure consuming nearly all the available land our concept of a “floating terminal” has been selected by the Government for its innovative, exciting and eco-friendly approach. The proposed terminal is built entirely on stilts over water without reclamation to preserve the existing environment and the natural coastline. With blue sea, white sandy beach as backdrop the new airport aims to provide passengers with a unique and memorable travel experience.

Glacier Discovery Walk in Jasper National Park, Canada by Sturgess Architecture

Thursday, November 17th, 2011

Article source: Sturgess Architecture

The Glacier Discovery Walk is envisioned as an extension of the fractal landscape that defines the Columbia Icefields in Canada’s Jasper National Park. Located along the edge of this dramatic escarpment, the project weaves a continuous thread of experience through united geometric and material forms. This sinuous experience defines the Discovery Walk not only as a singular destination, but as a catalyst and gateway that empowers guests to immerse themselves in the untouched natural environment.

Shoreline Walk in Beirut, Lebanon by Gustafson Porter

Thursday, November 17th, 2011

Article source: Gustafson Porter

The ‘Shoreline Walk’ is a sequence of connected spaces which form part of the reconstruction of the Beirut city centre. The area suffered physically and emotionally during the 1975-1991 Civil War. Beirut was once a melting pot of cultures and religions but the war created the ‘Green Line’, a physical barrier between the Christian East and Muslim West. This might have been difficult to erase, however the rebuilding demonstrates the Beirut’s character and resolve.
