Cutty Sark in London, England by Grimshaw

Wednesday, May 16th, 2012

Article source: Grimshaw

Cutty Sark epitomises the great age of sail; she is the last surviving tea clipper. Her remarkable story is tangible evidence of the centuries long importance of sea-trade to this country and to the growth of London as the world’s pre-eminent port and trading centre. Built as a tea clipper, where speed to market was critical, it is the combination of sail and hull form which gave Cutty Sark her edge. The hull shape is defined by the revolutionary 19th century composite iron and timber shipbuilding technique.

La Vitrine Culturelle is located in the heart of Montreal’s Quartier des Spectacles theatre district–an area known as a showcase for pioneering uses of multimedia technologies. After winning several awards for its interactive LED facade at La Vitrine’s former information centre at the Place-des-Arts, La Vitrine once again asked Moment Factory to push the boundaries of multimedia environments for their new and highly-visible location at the corner of Saint-Laurent and Sainte-Catherine. Moment Factory created an artistic installation that represents the effervescence of the city’s culture of design and innovation, while doubling as an informative and interactive medium.

Housing 137 in Barcelona, Spain by H Arquitectes

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

Article source: H Arquitectes

The Urban Planning for ‘Plaça de l’Església’ in Granollers intends to regain the role of this square within the old part of town.

Our plot is the key factor for the consolidation of this centrality, due to it occupies the space that gives continuity to Barcelona Street and connects with ‘Plaça de la Porxada’.

The three facades of the building become a single skin that, thank to the continuous use of the stone even in the shutters, unifies the volume and consolidates the characteristic predominance of the massive-wall facades in the old quarter.

Archipelago Cinema in Kudu Island, Thailand by Buro Ole Scheeren

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

Article source: Buro Ole Scheeren

The final night of the first edition of Film on the Rocks Yao Noi took place on Archipelago Cinema, designed by German-born and Beijing-based architect Ole Scheeren. Guests were taken by boat through the darkness of the sea to arrive on a glowing raft in the middle of the quiet waters of Nai Pi Lae lagoon on Kudu Island. Surrounded by a dramatic landscape of towering rocks emerging from the ocean, the audience experienced an atmospheric convergence of nature and cinematic narratives – primordial notions of light, sound and stories suspended in the darkness between sea and sky.

Vetlanda Group-Home in Vetlanda, Sweden by Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

Article source: Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture

KKA has designed a new group-home for six young disabled persons situated in the rural town of Vetlanda. The dwellers expressed a strong wish for the building not to have the appearance of a large complex but rather to relate to the scale of surrounding villas and farmhouses. Therefore we designed each dwelling with its own pitched roof. The houses are gathered around a common dining room. Much effort was put in to design the homes to suit the users´ specific needs of universal design.
