House of Seven Gardens in Gunma, Japan by Ikimono Architects

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

Article source: Takashi Fujino / Ikimono Architects

It is a house where three small boys live with young Mr. and Mrs..

They pursued a protected house of the privacy in the large vacant land of the downtown, so we suggested the house with an inner court of the one-storied house. The domain surrounded in a wall is divided in the room of big things and small things 17(11:outside,6:inside). They are connected and are sharp. The house is a domain of the families and it is a personal domain with it. The building will be related how for the heap of the family.

Artistic amenity Stadshaard in Enschede, The Netherlands by Branimir Medić & Pero Puljiz, de Architekten Cie

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

Article source: Branimir Medić & Pero Puljiz, de Architekten Cie

This power station is an instrument of education: designed to develop a sensibility for the consumption of energy and sustainable cohabitation. Combined heat and power plants are usually neutral industrial structures that are situated at some inconspicuous location. By contrast, the Stadshaard (literally the ‘city hearth’) stands at a prominent spot in Roombeek, where a neutral building would be out of place. With the Stadshaard’s dimensions (a building 10 metres high with a 40-metre chimney) it would, moreover, be impossible to realize an ‘invisible’ building that merges with the surroundings.

Elevated Brood in United Kingdom, London by Factory Fifteen

Monday, August 1st, 2011

Article source: Factory Fifteen

The “Paper Nautilus” was the main inspiration for the aquarium. The architect imitates the way it hangs its eggs from the strongest part of its shell by my placement of exhibit displays. The elevated, shell-like structure is a brood for the display chandeliers that can be lowered independently via remote control by the visitor. The maintenance of the fish decreases the further out onto the water they are, inside the linear repetition of the chandeliers themselves, coupled with the solar lilies, the further structures become almost completely independent.

Hirozakari Sake Brewery in Gunma, Japan by Tyrant Kunihiko Matsuba designed using Vectorworks

Sunday, July 31st, 2011

Article source: Tyrant Kunihiko Matsuba

A glass of water with a single drop of ink:

Neither purely transparent water nor visibly colored water; colored water in the strict sense of the term, which nevertheless has no color that can be perceived by human vision; neither 0 nor 100; somewhere between 0.1 and 1, and infinitesimally close to zero—our design policy may be described as such.

Article source: Edouard François

This operation situated in the future eco-neighborhoods, Prairie-au-Duc, in Nantes, is unique in particular because of its height. Its main challenge is to (re) create the desire to live in tall buildings, in a remarkable setting in the heart of the town.
