Walker Marchetti Residence in Washington DC by Wiebenson & Dorman Architects PC

Friday, December 16th, 2011

Article source: Wiebenson & Dorman Architects PC

Interior renovations and a metal clad 2-story rear addition create a modern oasis for a couple returning to Washington DC from a stint in Los Angeles.  Purchased as a shell in an established historic neighborhood a few miles north of the White House, this 1913 rowhouse carefully conceals the new work behind its preserved Mediterranean front façade.  New fenestrations, including a giant oculus in the master bath, a band of transoms and sidelights in the kitchen, exploit light and provide views to the garden and the sky.

Inhabiting the sky in Istanbul, Turkey by Leon11

Friday, December 16th, 2011

Article source: Leon11

Inhabiting the sky is a Project that aims both, to provoque a radical impression over the visitants and to take care of nature, creating an awareness about Sustainability through the understanding that nature is not something that we have to be fear, but just to respect and love. Karl Popper, the great philosopher of science, divided the world into two categories:
clocks and clouds.
The clocks are clean ordered systems that can be used through reductionism and the clouds are a mess epistemic “highly irregular, disordered, more or less unpredictable.”

Färgfabriken Kunsthalle in Liljeholmen, Stockholm by Petra Gipp Arkitektur (designed using ArchiCAD)

Friday, December 16th, 2011

Article source: Petra Gipp Arkitektur

In the land marked industrial building dating from the last turn of century there are imprints of different eras. It can be compared to an archive layers of time. The building has served as ammunition factory, paint factory and presently as kunsthalle for contemporary art and architecture. The kunsthalle lies in an area with heavy, superannuated industrial buildings, more or less degenerated. This is a landscape that has been left, that is waiting to be demolished and integrated with the surrounding city. Until then, this place lives on its own terms.
