Marxen House in Machtum, Luxembourg by Hermann & Valentiny and Partners

Sunday, May 6th, 2012

Article source: Hermann & Valentiny and Partners

This house, too, lies in the vineyard with a wonderful view of the Moselle. It is in part a masonry building with a visibly screwed oak façade; in part it has a load-bearing timber and glass façade. The building encloses an internal courtyard on three sides and is oriented to the northeast, towards the Moselle. There, too, a large pool of water was positioned, which can also be used as a swimming pool. A footbridge leads across this pool to the entrance to the house.

New home for Garage in Moscow in Moscow, Russia by OMA

Sunday, May 6th, 2012

Article source: OMA

CENTER FOR CONTEMPORARY CULTURE

Now that preservation is increasingly important in our approach to existing cities, the period between the 1960s and 1980s is, worldwide, an exception. We can imagine saving Fin de Siècle, early Modernism, but the more anonymous and impersonal architecture that emerged after World War II has few fans and almost no defenders. That is why we were very happy to work on turning the almost-ruin of Vremena Goda into the new house for Garage. We were able, with our client and her team, to explore the qualities of generosity, dimension, openness, and transparency of the Soviet wreckage and fi nd new uses and interpretations for them; it also enabled us to avoid the exaggeration of standards and scale that is becoming an aspect of contemporary art spaces. – Rem Koolhaas

ROCK-SETTE in Istanbul, Turkey by Dinkoff Architects & Engineers Inc.

DISASTER PREVENTION AND EDUCATION CENTER

The rich culture of Turkey includes a monument to human achievement, invention, and practicality – a site called Cappadocia.  More than two thousand years ago, the people of the region sought a strong, permanent and imposing shelter.   Inspired by the natural geological formations in the region which withstood all natural onslaughts, the people carved and “engineered” homes and public spaces within those natural rock formations.  They did this with such skill and esthetics that it still echoes today with vibrancy and life.

Manhattan Mountain in Lower East Side, New York by Ju-Hyun Kim, AIA

Re-Imagining Seward Park Redevelopment (SPURA) on the Lower East Side, New York

Recent news coverage for the 7-acre parcel, Manhattan’s biggest undeveloped,  publicly owned development site south of 96th Street, has provided the chance to contemplate many important urban issues.

Firstly, are we taking full advantage of this great opportunity to develop a vast land in the heart of Manhattan, or just limiting our imagination under current NYC zoning resolution (which is 50 years old)? Secondly, is the hot debate over big box retailers heading to the right direction?

Perspective

Incheon Tower in South Korea by François Blanciak Architect

Saturday, May 5th, 2012

Article source: François Blanciak Architect

In order to avoid the bilboquet form inherent to most observation structures of this height, the proposed building is conceived as a continuous segment whose middle part is made thicker by a knot. The resulting symbolic shape expresses the idea that the total length of the tower is in fact even longer than the regulated maximum height of 450 meters which it reaches at its summit. Alternately, the space created by the knot shape turns out to conveniently provide viewers with a three-dimensional panoramic experience of the city of Incheon, as a continuous indoor and outdoor balcony.

Incheon Tower

  • Architects: François Blanciak Architect
  • Project: Incheon Tower
  • Location: Incheon, South Korea
  • Collaborator: Janko Radojevic
  • Program: observation tower + exhibition hall + leisure facilities
  • Type: competition
  • Date: 2008
  • Area: 45000m²

As the central hub of SOS Children’s Village Chicago, an organization in Chicago’s Auburn-Gresham neighborhood that serves foster care families, the building combines services for foster care and neighborhood families under one roof.
