A landmark architecture with dynamic-sculptural and technical-innovative form that promotes the values of ThyssenKrupp. Axes span spiral-like in all directions creating a centrifugal field that forms the outline of the buildings and the surrounding landscape. This spatial development evokes images of dune landscapes or glacier fields formed and polished by nature.

Casa Del Pico in Spain by Ábaton Arquitectura (designed using Microstation)

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

Article source: Ábaton Arquitectura

Since the land was on a high slope it was necessary to build a two-story villa. The idea of two structures floating on rock was possible because of the granite on the land. The bottom of the swimming pool is irregular imitating the shape of the granite on which it stands. The access to the house through one of the sides discovers a huge glass window overlooking three outstanding olm oaks around which the house was designed. To one side there are the public areas such as living room, kitchen and to the other side there are the private areas – bedrooms, bathrooms- arranged in two floors.

On the east of the site, the elevated road joint between Osaka and Kyoto where the JR Tokaido line is crossing from the west. It is to be seen a widely spreading switchyard on the same direction of the elevated road. The vicinity of the site is an eclectic gathering from small to medium size of factories, warehouses, trade facilities and housings forming which is the mixed landscape of architectural typologies.

Planted Environment in Chicago, Illinois by STUDIO IDE

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

Article source: STUDIO IDE

Designed by Vladimir Radutny and Paul Tebben of STUDIO IDE, this ground level space inscribes the functions of living, entertaining and yoga into a traditional three story suburban home.  The Clients, having lived and traveled in the eastern world, aspired to transplant the character of Southeast Asian living into their existing home.  Rather than forcing the marriage between these two dissimilar architectural languages, the choice to disconnect each from the other created a world within a world.

Cemetary Service Building at Ulriksdal in Stockholm, Sweden by Petra Gipp Arkitektur and In Praise of Shadows

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

Article source: Petra Gipp Arkitektur and In Praise of Shadows

We see a cemetery as a place which is naturally linked to life. To the development of life through time and through the world, something wandering which suddenly one day can end. A demystified relationship to death makes life easier to live.

Istanbul Disaster Center in Turkey by DRA&U

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

Article source: DRA&U

Given the particular nature of the programme described in the competition brief, our proposal focuses on the realisation of a visually striking building that also represents a challenge to traditional architecture and engineering. Beginning with these objectives, and given the primarily didactic nature of the new Centre, it was our belief that the building’s main focus should be that of involving visitors. To avoid the design of a horizontally and vertically rigid, and thus monotonous work of architecture our proposal focuses on the creation of an educational loop that develops in two directions simultaneously.

House BFW in Haag am Hausruck, Austria by [tp3] architekten

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

Article source: [tp3] architekten

A building with highs and lows

These two leading themes are arranged to create a single overall structure through the symbiotic positioning of the different roof landscape. The integrated roof landscape means that at first glance it is not clear to the individual that these are actually two separate buildings, yet the roof that slopes towards the west connects the residence with the garage and therefore enables the existence of an intimate outside area in this interim zone.
