Pedestrian footbridge in Evry, France by DVVD

Friday, December 2nd, 2011

Article source: DVVD

Due to the separation of pedestrian and vehicular traffic, bridges are particularly significant landscapes in public space in Evry. One key requirement quickly emerged: the need to prevent objects being thrown onto vehicles beneath the footbridge. At the same time as offering better user safety, we also wanted the bridge to be transparent and fun. We combined these architectural intentions and technical considerations to create a steel structure forming a volume which encompasses pedestrians.

Brahler Residence in Bay Village, Ohio by robert maschke ARCHITECTS

Friday, December 2nd, 2011

Article source: robert maschke ARCHITECTS inc.

Architecture for residential additions is often characterized by two distinct approaches: imitate the style of the home so the addition is indistinguishable or create something clearly new and different. Neither mimicry nor novelty would suffice for the expansion of the Brahler Residence; the unique qualities of the site and a desire to integrate with the existing architecture called for a hybrid strategy.

It will make use of the most developed technologies and formal principles as they did according to their time. The proposal connects the two mountains (2 dominant resources) of the valleys and will give the museum and the geopark a new stronger character with a program that fulfills the requirements of function, management and maintenance. It is changing technologically and economically feasible. The proposal meets the requirements and the terms as described in the competition documentation according to program, space /areas and possesses a certain capacity of exception.
