Refurbishment of an old Marketplace in Alcaniz, Spain by Miquel mariné+césar rueda boné

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

Article source: Miquel mariné+césar rueda boné

The old marketplace of Alcañiz has not been home to a market for some years, but now it has once again become a part of the town square, an area for socializing, passing time, and education. The enormous space inside the building has been reconnected to its environment via the introduction of a newly built element. Independent of the existing structure, it is an exercise of occupation strategic, respectful and reversible. Its two levels are enclosed within a homogenous and continuous skin.

“Hot Paper” restaurant & modern food in Tczew, Poland by Wamhouse

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

Article source: Wamhouse

The restaurant design included not only interiors, but also the name of the restaurant, logo and elevation, that is comprehensive image setting. The leading element is a newspaper motif, which appears both in the restaurant name and in the interior itself – in the form of a wallpaper as well as “torn” walls and furniture.  The guests of the restaurant were supposed to be surprised with the name thereof, not knowing what to expect – hot news or meals from a hot newspaper.

Kimball Art Center in Park City, Utah by Brooks + Scarpa Architects

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

Article source: Brooks + Scarpa Architects

Brooks + Scarpa has released their proposal for the roughly 22,000 square foot addition to the existing 12,000 square foot 1929 historic Kimball Art Center located in the heart of downtown Park City at the corner of Main Street and Heber Ave.

The design concept for the new Kimball Art Center is to perceptually bring the mesmerizing and seemingly endless deep blue Park City sky directly into the space of the city. Despite the time of year or weather conditions, the sky always seems to quickly return to its infinite and hypnotic clarity, with rarely a cloud in the sky. It provokes a kind of indelible wonder; a dreamlike state of mind that engages the viewer, heightens their sense of awareness, and brings a sense of vitality to the place. The Kimball “Cloud” delivers a new experience and expands art into the broader Park City community, creating a new social space for the 21st century.

Panorama House in Chungbuk, Korea by Moon Hoon

The client

They have four kids, and that is a big family by contemporary standards. They are both teachers in their late thirties. The first, and the most important thing they wanted in their new home was a place where their kids could play, read and study. They wanted lower floors for the kids and upper for themselves. They already tried it out with another architect, but it did not satisfy them, that’s when they said that they found about me, who appeared to be more playful, and more creative.

Masterplan for Marseille’s old port displayed at MIPIM in France by Foster + Partners

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

Article source: Foster + Partners

Marseille’s Vieux Port, one of the great Mediterranean ports, is about to be transformed. Work has started on Michel Desvigne’s and Foster + Partners’ competition-winning master-plan for its regeneration. The project will reclaim the quaysides as a civic space, creating new informal venues for performances and events and removing traffic to create a safe, semi-pedestrianized public realm. The transformation of the World Heritage-listed port is one of a series of projects to be completed in time for the city’s inauguration as European Capital of Culture in 2013.

Arctic Research Facility in ice cap of the Arctic Ocean by Polar Ants

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

Article source: Polar Ants

Architecture defines, articulates and mediates the relationship between a physical environment and in-habitation. The primary investigation of this project is to balance this relationship through a dynamic study of material behavior. This project therefore proposes a living architecture, and challenges the classical modernist notions of permanence and stability. The theme of this proposal necessitates an equally responsive environment. As such, the project is located on the ice cap of the Arctic Ocean; an environment which exhibits harsh climatic conditions for human survival as well as constantly fluctuating physical surroundings. As ice makes up the entire physical environment of the Arctic cap, different times of the year present vastly different ground conditions; namely various ice thicknesses, hardness and layering of the ice, topographical features and overall ice coverage. As these factors change over the course of the year so do all architectural and formal qualities associated with them.
