Venus Tower in Incheon, South Korea by OFL architecture and FUERALAB

Friday, May 20th, 2011

N FLOATING GALLERY

Venus. The concept design for the master plan and city tower of the City of Incheon comes from a single moment, an inspiration, hence, a re-discovery and re-interpretation of a master piece: Botticelli’s Birth of Venus. We strongly believe that contemporary architecture, today strongly attached with time and politics and socio-political issues, needs to also form a dialogue with the past. A dialogue not only understood as literal interpretation but subjective definition, a metamorphosis of form and meaning. We propose to base our design concept on the Birth of Venus, reinterpreting the act of birth, the birth of a new City that rises from a large body of water and a rich blend of cultural diversity: the cosmopolitan city of past, present and future.

Venus Tower

The Chimney House in Bosschenhoofd, Netherlands by Onix Architect

Friday, May 20th, 2011

The Chimney House in Bosschenhoofd has a simple main volume with a rectangular floor plan and a saddleback roof. The plan is based on the fact that the chimney is a disappearing feature in architecture of this century.  This tempted us to create a house with several chimneys. The chimney has been used in different sizes and shapes and with different functions.

Hoto Fudo in Yamanashi, Japan by Takeshi Hosaka Architects

Thursday, May 19th, 2011

The project was planned on the site with Mt. Fuji rising closely in the south and the two sides facing the trunk roads. This building seems to belong to such nature objects as mountains and clouds. It is made from soft geometry, which will not arise from the figures like quadrangles and circles. By continuously operating innumerable polygon mesh points, we have determined the shape that clears the conditions such as the consistency as shell construction and the undulations that ward off rainwater in spite of its free geometry. The RC shell with cubic surfaces creates such spaces as 530 square meters of seats, 140 square meters of kitchens, and 50 square meters of rest rooms, in such a manner that it envelops and opens them.
