“Gomba” on Móricz Zsigmond Circus in Budapest, Hungary by Hetedik Műterem Ltd.

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

Article source: Hetedik Műterem Ltd.

Along with Moszkva square, Móricz Zsigmond circus is a very busy public transportation junction, located in south Buda. With a round art relic in its middle – the Gomba (meaning mushroom because of its form) is a popular public space for people to meet, with several trams and buses intersecting, along with the Budapest Metro – subway line 4, presently under construction. The concept by Hetedik Műterem Ltd. was to treat the art relic of József Schall (from 1942) with proper respect but determined courage. At the same time, they redefined the currently closed space structure, to put forward and intensify the presence of the urban public space.

MAXXI supercedes the notion of the museum as ‘object’ or – presenting a field of buildings accessible to all, with no firm boundary between what is ‘within’ and what is ‘without’. Central to this new reality are confluent lines – walls intersecting and separating to create interior and exterior spaces.

Panoramabad Gröbming in Austria by KREINERarchitektur

When designing the new family bath in Gröbming the entire environment in terms of topography, sun history, perspectives, and existing buildings were analyzed.

The existing pool area is located on a hillside and has great visual links to the surrounding mountain peaks. To optimally exploit this situation and capture the sun’s rays, the sloping terrain will be completed by the placement of the building. The building blends seamlessly with the existing buildings and was provided with apitched roof. The arrangement of the swimming pool was also planned in relation to topography. Theslope shifted broad slide and the 3-meter-high diving platform developed from the ground.

Article source: nottoscale

The Rondolino residence is the prototype of the T-modulome, a prefabricated building system by nottoscale that was first developed in 2002.

Fabrizio Rondolino, an independent writer and author from Rome, Italy commissioned nottoscale to build the T-modulome on an isolated stretch of land in the Nevada desert near Scotty’s Junction. After a couple of challenges that nottoscale faced due to the remoteness of the site and the Wild West mentality of the local contractors, the building was finally completed in December of 2010. During the entire process the client and architect solely communicated via e-mail and did not even meet or talk once.

With the new construction of the kindergarten was opened especially for the existing urban structure into account. The nursery is designed to complement the ensemble of existing vicarage and L-shaped to create a particularly attractive open space for the children. The orientation of the group rooms are to the east, to the morning operation to allow an optimal exposure by the morning sun. A possible extension to a group or a nursery can be made towards the south and is therefore also ideally illuminated.

Tiger & Turtle – Magic Mountain in Duisburg, Germany by Heike Mutter and Ulrich Genth

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

Article source: Heike Mutter and Ulrich Genth

Lately, the sleek curved shape of a rollercoaster highlights widely visible the highest peak of the park-­‐like designed Heinrich Hildebrand Höhe in the South of Duisburg. The dynamic sweeps and curves of the construction inscribe themselves like a signature into the scenery and soar till the height of 21 meters. From a distance the metallic glossy track creates the impression of speed and exceeding acceleration. Viewed from close up, the supposed lane turns out to be a stairway which, elaborately winding, follows the course of the rollercoaster. The visitor can climb the art work by foot. Although the course describes a closed loop, it is impossible to accomplish it as the looping emerges to be a physical barrier. On top, at the highest point of the sculpture – 45 meters above ground – the visitor is rewarded with an extraordinary view over the landscape of the Western Ruhr.

Article source: J. MAYER H. Architects

The Court of Justice is one of two iconic projects within the new urban development around the main rail station. The logistics and siting of a courthouse with multiple security barriers of security results in a massing composed of three interconnected volumes. References include the old industrial steel structures that formerly occupied and defined the site, their organic Belgian Art Nouveau forms constituting part of the cultural heritage of Hasselt. There are also echoes of a tree, which, in addition to being is the Hasselt town emblem, as well as also harks back to the historicpre-medieval European tradition  of holding a special “place of speaking justice” underneath a large tree in the center of a dwelling.
