SIP Panel house in Valparaíso Region, Chile by Alejandro Soffia and Gabriel Rudolphy

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

Article source: Alejandro Soffia + Gabriel Rudolphy

Built with SIP panels (Structural Insulated Panels), this house is conceived as an attempt to rationalize this construction material and achieve a maximum optimization of its structural and dimensional qualities. The totality of the house was configured with two kinds of components: wall panels (122 x 244 x 11.4 mm) and split-levelpanels (122 x 488 x 21mm). In just 10 days, 71 wall panels and 40 split-level panels were built. The loss of material was negligible.

Article source: UNStudio + EE&K

UNStudio and EE&K a Perkins Eastman company, and Jacobs Engineering have submitted a proposal for a scope of work to develop a Master Plan of Los Angeles Union Station.

Ben van Berkel of UNStudio, along with Jonathan Cohn of EE&K, presented their ‘Vision Board’ –  a conceptual rendering in the year 2050, showing Los Angeles Union Station as a multi-modal transit hub with a mix of uses, new development and outdoor spaces. The intent of the Vision Board was to explore visionary possibilities for Union Station and surrounding areas. The vision submitted does not portray the final design issues that will be examined in the Master Plan, however it does show a hint of the possibilities for the city and the regional transit hub of the future.

Disorderly Conduct in Greensboro, North Carolina by Patrick Dougherty

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

Article source: Patrick Dougherty

“Disorderly Conduct” is a sapling sculpture by Patrick Dougherty at Guilford College in Greensboro, North Carolina. The sculpture was created over a three-week period, using saplings of red maple, gum, and persimmon harvested nearby. Students and other volunteers assisted Patrick in its construction. The final work stands sixteen feet high and covers a footprint that is 35′ x 25′. The inspiration for the work was a wasp nest found during the harvesting. Patrick noted the interlocking cells, and saw them as a symbol for community befitting the Quaker school.

Herma Parking Building in Gyonggi-Do, Korea by JOHO Architecture

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

Article source: JOHO Architecture

General Korean Parking lot types filled JukjeonCommercial Area

Parking lot either frankly reveals itself to be a parking lot without any consideration for design or surroundings, or disguises like a commercial facility. However, both cases are not welcomed in a city and ruin the city landscape.

Development districts of New Downtown in Korea that are fully filled with gigantic real estate goods only emphasize the legal maximum floor area ratio. The city identity is represented by the wall-covering signs not the presence of space nor void. The massive box lumps clutter the city with the logic of capitalism that is composed of investment, lease and presale, rather than the respective regional characteristics. This project intended to change the urban landscape through a proposition of a certain symbolically designed icon on a dry city.

Biodiversity and the Creation of Mobile Natural Growth by Lijbers Architects

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

Article source: Lijbers Architects

Context – Problem Definition
One way to look at the decline of natural biodiversity is from the perspective of complex human dynamics –i.e. the organized but fundamentally unpredictable behavior of human systems – and its consequences for the natural environment. We humans tend to expand, move, and reallocate ground at speeds unparalleled within the natural world. Our persistent and unpredictable need for space, land, and raw materials causes the original natural environment to diminish, along with its ecosystem of plants and animals. The highly dynamic reallocation and changing of the earth’s habitat by human action falls short in providing vulnerable species of plants and animals with sufficient time to recover. The continuous cycle of removing and reallocating natural space can, in the best case, maintain a certain amount of the “natural environment”, yet it can never maintain the same level of biodiversity that was originally present.

  • Name of project: Biodiversity and the Creation of Mobile Natural Growth
  • Software used: arkey/ASD and autocad for the basic drawings. And photoshop and illustrator to finish the drawings.

Shield House in Denver, Colorado by Studio H:T

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

Article source: Studio H:T

This urban infill project juxtaposes a tall, slender curved circulation space against a rectangular living space. The tall curved metal wall was a result of bulk plane restrictions and the need to provide privacy from the public decks of the adjacent three story triplex. This element becomes the focus of the residence both visually and experientially. It acts as sun catcher that brings light down through the house from morning until early afternoon. At night it becomes a glowing, welcoming sail for visitors.
