Hillary CLinton Presidential Library by Sean Surla

Friday, June 1st, 2012

Article source: Sean Surla

The library was inspired by the hanging gardens of Babylon; one of the cradles of civilization and agriculture. The library looks to the future by integrating the natural systems of water, vegetation and energy into its architecture. It embodies and symbolizes the self-sufficiency of all people and cultures, as well as the inter connectedness of all humanity, creatures and nature. It embodies the preservation of the world’s natural resources and methods of uniting peoples, by promoting self-sufficiency through permaculture & top soil renewal-replacing industrial annual crop agriculture, as well as energy and water resource management. The library exemplifies unity through knowledge and the many possible ways to keep the dialogue open and keep the planets remaining resources and cultures thriving.

Stone Towers in Cairo, Egypt by Zaha Hadid Architects

Friday, June 1st, 2012

Article source: Zaha Hadid Architects

Set between ring road and residential area, Stone Towers avoids the monolithic repetition of static building masses – comprising higher structures, articulated through a series of ‘ripples’ to create North Edge Buildings and lower, softer ‘ribbons’ at South Edge Buildings – a central, outdoor landscape, the ‘Delta’ fusing these key elements.

Stone Towers, named for an ancient petrified tree at the heart of this new development, comprises state of the art office facilities for a rapidly expanding city, alongside a five star hotel, serviced apartments, restaurants, bars and a central landscaped area, the ‘Delta’.

Jacob’s Ladder in Brooklyn, New York by BanG studio

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

Article source: BanG studio

In conjunction with their participation in American Express’ Partners in Preservation program, Congregation Beth Elohim in Brooklyn has commissioned BanG studio to design, fabricate, and erect an art installation inside the synagogue’s main sanctuary. The given theme of the piece is Jacob’s Ladder reflecting the synagogue’s special connection to the story.
In Genesis, Jacob stops for the night en route from the house of his father, Isaac to Paddan-aram. He dreams of a ladder set upon the earth and stretching to heaven. In his dream, angels ascend and descend the ladder. God appears to Jacob promising the land on which he sleeps to him and his descendants. When Jacob awakens he realizes that, “surely the Lord is in this place, and I did not know it.”

Sky SOHO in Shanghai, China by Zaha Hadid Architects

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

Article source: Zaha Hadid Architects

A design for a new office and retail destination that aims to provide a strong visual identity close to Hongqiao Transportation Hub near Shanghai’s city centre and Hongqiao Airport.

Our proposal for the new Linkong SOHO building aims to provide a strong visual and programmatic identity which establishes a unique destination in its own right. Such identity consists of an exclusive programme mix consolidated in three different destinations – thematic “Courtyards” – representing distinct clusters of activities, and an exceptional architecture that moulds such a programme into a landmark. The building’s dynamic, curvilinear form continues through its internal spatial experiences, dramatic courtyards and flowing public spaces.

Warburg House in Alberta, Canada by Bioi inc.

Wednesday, May 30th, 2012

Article source: Bioi inc.

Seeking to architecturally balance the functional, the handsome, the efficient, and the economical is not an easy task; but this was the brief provided for the Warburg house. The question posed by the client was simple: can we provide a simple, contemporary, and energy efficient home for less than $100,000?

On a wooded Canadian farmstead, the new house replaces a dwelling that was no longer able to fulfill its function due to build quality and the strains of a working farm. The architectural concept was simple: open, flexible, and efficient.
