Arganzuela Footbridge in Madrid, Spain by Dominique Perrault Architecture

Friday, December 2nd, 2011

Article source: Dominique Perrault Architecture

The burying underground of the highway that ran along the edges of the Manzanares river provided the opportunity to open up a new urban territory to the inhabitants of Madrid: the Manzanares Park. A series of bridges over the river will allow passage from one side of the park to the other. Designed to link the neighborhoods on the right and left banks of the river, the Arganzuela Footbridge will be the longest of all the bridges to be built. The bridge will be for both pedestrians and cyclists.

St. Anthony Hospital in Gig Harbor, Washington by ZGF Architects LLP

Friday, December 2nd, 2011

Article source: ZGF Architects LLP

Prior to the completion of the new St. Anthony Hospital, the South Sound Region represented one of the largest population centers in the State of Washington without a central community hospital. As a result more than 3,500 emergencies and 4,000 patients requiring overnight care had to travel outside of the area for treatment annually. The 80-bed, 250,000 SF full service hospital in Gig Harbor addresses the need for critical health care services within this growing region, and provides quality care in a patient-centered environment that celebrates the local community’s Native American and maritime history, rich natural landscape, and the connection between nature, health and well-being.

Hill-Maheux Cottage in Val-des-Monts, Canada by Kariouk Associates

Friday, December 2nd, 2011

Article source: Kariouk Associates

Task:

To design a small, very private, four-season cottage

Design Challenge:

In this small, weekend and vacation retreat, the clients and their daughter seek to take refuge from the world. As such, the home is introverted; but the clients also desired that the house achieve a maximum connection to its beautiful, forested, lake-side site. Last, it is important to note that this home is built as a place the clients will keep for their entire lives and then pass on to their daughter; the clients, a couple each involved in art conservation, sought a home whose design would itself be conceived as a vessel for the conservation of the family memories that will unfold here.
