The Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne, Australia by Billard Lecce Partnership and Bates Smart

Tuesday, October 9th, 2012

Article source: Billard Lecce Partnership and Bates Smart

The design of Melbourne’s $AUD1 billion Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) is based on ‘state of the art’ ideas developed by the hospital around a family-centred care model that puts children and their parents at the centre of the tertiary level paediatric care facility. Using innovative and evidence-based design principles, the RCH reflects changing healthcare practices, workplace patterns, user expectations, community aspirations and environmental responsibility.

The building’s formal arrangement, as well the internal and external spatial experiences, has been assembled to promote a restorative and healing environment for children and their families.

To the north of King’s Cross and St Pancras International railway stations, 67-acres of derelict land are being transformed in what is one of Europe’s largest urban regeneration projects. The result will be a vibrant mixed-use quarter, at the physical and creative heart of which will be the new University of the Arts London campus, home of Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design.

Binh Duong School in Vietnam by Vo Trong Nghia Architects

Tuesday, October 9th, 2012

Article source: Vo Trong Nghia Architects

Binh Duong, a new city which is 30 minutes away from Ho Chi Minh City, has a typical tropical climate all year round. The site is located in the middle of a flourishing forest with a wide variety of green and fruits, running rampant. This is where folks spending their time under the shade of trees. To pursuit a beautiful life, people are in harmony with the nature, making the border between the inside and the outside ambiguously. From the very first impression of the site, we tried to embed the building into the site by delivering this Vietnam-oriented generous spirit of natural land into the school design, which will eventually have 800 students.

Tourkovounia as a Green – Wind Landscape in Athens, Greece by Andreas Demertzis, Ioannis Katsanos, Thanasis Farangas

Tuesday, October 9th, 2012

Article source: Andreas Demertzis, Ioannis Katsanos, Thanasis Farangas

The reason for selecting and analyzing this concept was the examination of the area of Athens. The city is characterized by the growth and development of new buildings. Even if those new structures improved the every day life of the residents, the overall effect on the character of the city suffered.
We selected this particular concept because we noticed the negative impact of those urban structures on the landscape of Athens and that the city is “eating away” the landscape. Our intention is to create the opposite effect: for the landscape to merge with the city.

The promoter stated it clearly: “I want a singular and bioclimatic building”

And to him, at the beginning, that meant a building with a relatively conventional appearance which would incorporate bioclimatic systems such as solar panels.
