Khach San Thien Thuy Hotel in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam by CMV Architects

Article source: CMV Architects

The Water Hotel is laid up of 25 plants, five of them destined exclusively to hotel use. A building with an ultramodern image, as well as real and viable, that must adapt to the multifunctionality of the program, allowing the sufficient versatility to guarantee its effectiveness in front of any flexible use. For that so, a volume of two towers of square plant is made and joined by its diagonal. One of the towers is, exclusively, for hotel use, whereas the other lodges the offices and administration premises. This way we emphasize the height and slenderness of the building and at the same time it shows a diversified variety of shades and perspectives.

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

Article source: The Galante Architecture Studio

The fold house is a study in concrete panel construction. One of the full scale prototypes created for the Boston Architecture College exhibition was a concrete panel wall with a tessellated surface. Vertical concrete panels were hinged one to the other establishing the folded geometric pattern. The underlying idea for this prototype is the driving force behind the Fold House. Here, concrete panels hinge upon one another to form a compressed surface.
