Fujitsubo Beauty Parlor in Tokyo, Japan by Archivision Hirotani Studio

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

Article source: Archivision Hirotani Studio

This beauty parlor stands in the Omote-sando area of Tokyo, which represents one of the trend setting centers for this metropolis.  The building has three roof openings which pours light into the interior and, which, by slit-like openings in the floor is led into the floors below, reaching the ground floor, which in turn can be seen from the street level through its large glass windows.  Thereby, expressing the image of a “vessel of light.”

Deposit of Archaeological Museum in Soissons, France by K Architectures (designed using ArchiCAD)

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

Article source: K Architectures

Using a rusted metal-clad skin the Parisian architects K Architectures have made a formally bold, yet humble building that will evolve and weather with time, an object adaptive to its surroundings. The new archaeological museum in Soissons, France, pays homage to its heritage but is assertive in its place as a contemporary public building.” Architizer, may 2011

Sundaram Tagore Gallery in New York City by Katz Architecture

Article source: Katz Architecture

The Gallery:

The Sundaram Tagore Gallery is devoted to the exchange of ideas between Western and non-­‐Western cultures. In keeping with its mission, the Gallery sought to bridge dualities when they moved into the ground floor of a manufacturing building in West Chelsea. The new space, which last served as a taxi garage, had to be completely overhauled to serve as a platform for cross-­‐cultural discussion through visual art, poetry, literature, performance art, film and music.

Ordos T.C.A.O. Museum in Inner Mongolia, China by ///byn

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

Article source: ///byn

Chinese calligraphy is mainly based in three characteristics: status of mind, line & color. These tree concepts triggered our original ideas for the Ordos Museum

The inhabiting/space populating logic in Inner Mongolia is grouping. Local herds of camels & horses used to browse the steppe in search for comfort. This comfort was only fulfilled when they would arrive to a DECISSION to settle in the landscape. In the same manner, the always present clouds populate the Inner Mongolian sky: groups of rounded & cotton locking clouds spread at the intense blue sky. Finally, also the original nomads will settle their yurts following a constellation. An primary impression of non-organization is quickly overcome by a self-organized logic. Here, the museum volumes have found their own space in the park. The logics of placement come from many different aspects: orientation, functionality, targeted visuals, public space, creating a unique orchestrated sequence of spaces.

Florida Hospital / Burnham Institute in Orlando, Florida by Flad Architects (designed using AutoCAD and Revit)

Studies by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) show a dramatic increase in obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease across the United States. These have become a national crisis that requires ongoing and immediate attention.

The Translational Research Institute for Metabolism and Diabetes (TRI) facility will focus on the study of diabetes, obesity, and the metabolic origins of cardiovascular disease – bridging the gap between the research lab and the patient’s bedside and allowing for scientific discoveries and treatments to be developed more quickly and on a more personalized level.

More projects by Zaha Hadid

Echoing and extending the many circulatory and visual connections that define its surrounding topography, the museum forms itself by extending and folding these connections through a series of pleats, producing a structure that changes as visitors move past and through it – creating great curiosity yet never fully revealing its content. The location of the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at the northern edge of the Michigan State University campus is influenced by a set of movements along and across it.

Recovery Project for a rural building in Salento, Italy by Luca Zanaroli Architetto

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

Article source: Luca Zanaroli Architetto

“When I discovered what would have become my refuge in the Salento area, my first impression of the building and the location was its “monumental nature”. Not for any special artistic or architectural value (it is, in fact, a rather rudimental and poor building), but for its expression of strength and character, which is typical of the nature and culture of the area. That was when I decided that the restoration project should have had the purpose to maintain my original impression intact.”
