Vilnius Museum & Cultural Centre in Lithuania by Zaha Hadid Architects

Saturday, December 17th, 2011

Article source: Zaha Hadid Architects

Our new museum and cultural centre emerges in contrast to a surrounding vertical skyline – seemingly defying gravity as it ‘floats’ above the ground, its long, curvilinear lines generating a building of enormous fluidity, velocity and lightness within which visitors may ‘experiment’ with the very notion of ‘gallery’.

Tori Tori Restaurant in Polanco, Mexico by rojkind arquitectos and Esrawe Studio

Saturday, December 17th, 2011

Article source: rojkind arquitectos and Esrawe Studio

Considered one of the best Japanese restaurants in Mexico City and due to its remarkable success, Tori-Tori has now moved to a bigger location in the same area of Polanco, Mexico City, where Rojkind Arquitectos and Esrawe Studio teamed up to make it happen. At the residential area in Polanco that has seen changes in its zoning, houses have been transformed to office spaces or restaurants. Sometimes things happen so unnoticeably, that just a small sign appears where a new space has been developed with a completely different program inside, while preserving its exterior. Aware of this, Rojkind and Esrawe wanted to give enough strength to the new program that they proposed to transform the space inside out.

A Mobile School for Burmese Refugees in Thailand by in situ studio

Saturday, December 17th, 2011

Article source: in situ studio

One-hundred and forty-four frames, the structure of a new school, arrive on site a bit after nine in the morning on three flatbed trucks. The three-hour trek to Kwe Ka Bung has been challenging. Just one week ago these people learned the landowner of their former settlement site would be pushing them out to develop the land. Many families have left their homes behind, along with much of the infrastructure for producing food and dealing with waste. Thankfully, demounting the school that has now arrived required only one afternoon and twelve workers.

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.”
