Kimball Art Center in Park City, Utah by Will Bruder + Partners

Saturday, January 21st, 2012

Article source: Will Bruder + Partners

KAC as Urban Magnet…

Will Bruder + PARTNERS’ design proposal for the reinvented Kimball Art Center creates a community arts pavilion that is scaled to and complementary to its urban context — proportioned to be understood and enjoyed both from the pace of a pedestrian on Main Street or through the perspective of a visitor’s windshield as they arrive in Park City. The Kimball Art Center is conceived as a comfortable building of its place and time that also celebrates the challenge of ‘the new’. It is a home to the possibilities of ‘making and ideas’, as it serves its mission of providing quality arts education, exhibition, and events.

The School of Art and Design at The New York State College of Ceramics by ikon.5 architects

Saturday, January 21st, 2012

Article source: ikon.5 architects

The McGee Art Pavilion is an expansion to the School of Art and Design at the New York State College of Ceramics in Alfred, New York. The Pavilion is designed as a large ceramic vessel for holding art and light. It is set on a plaza between two existing campus buildings on Academic Alley – the main pedestrian thoroughfare on the campus. Its ceramic façade, made of un-glazed terra cotta tubes, is a solar and rain screen. The unglazed terra cotta tubes that make up the screen are expressive of ceramic vessels and art objects being created inside the School of Art and Design.

The Round Tower in Glouchestershire, England by De Matos Ryan

Saturday, January 21st, 2012

Article source: De Matos Ryan

The Round Tower is a Grade II Listed folly, which had been reduced to ruin by years of neglect and fire. Located on the crest of a hill overlooking Siddington Village, the exposed site is visually integral to the setting of this listed structure. As such the design approach maintains the open relationship with the surrounding agricultural landscape by developing a discreet and substantial underground extension to the tower.  This underground extension provides the main open plan living spaces and is lit by both a central open sunken courtyard and a lateral ‘landscape scoop’ concealing the new swimming pool and associated sun terraces from public view.

Villa Rotterdam in The Netherlands by OOZE architects

Saturday, January 21st, 2012

Article source: OOZE architects

Living in a Structure

The project is a redevelopment of a villa located in a green neighborhood of Rotterdam.

The existing villa was composed of an eclectic set of buildings stuck together forming a strange architectural patchwork: An original building from the early 20th century, a first extension built in 1991 mirroring the house and a final touch in 2003 to add 3 rooms and several facilities just before the current owner moved in.

MPO9 Headquarter in Graz, Austria by GSarchitects ZT-GmbH

MP09  Headquarter Uniopt Pachleitner Group in Graz / Austria

An architectonic punctuation at an exposed site of the city – a new and distinctive Entree to the city – a future oriented potential for development for the whole area.

Putting a company into the spotlight means transforming a philosophy into architecture. The ‘black panther’s does not only recount the story of the company but he emotionalises, he describes a vision and makes it physically and sculpturally ascertainable. Where Design and shape evolve, ideas emerge and become manifest in mass. Elegant and smooth, the ‘black Panther’s composes eagerness and speed to the urban architecture. His watchful eyes attend the street – movement and silhouette merge in the dance of the forces and the night.

Europan 11 San Bartolome 1st Prize Geologia Rurbana

Friday, January 20th, 2012

Article source: CUAC Arquitectura

‘RURBAN’ GEOLOGY

In the island of Lanzarote two ways of volcanic landscape transformation converge:  the rhythm of the earth and the rhythm of human life. We can talk about coexistence and overlapping of changing processes that belong to different scales: the geological and the urban one. The agriculture has turned people into powerful agents of ‘displacement of material’, as powerful as the wind which they protect themselves from.

The project takes the idea of accumulation and overlapping of layers in the landscape construction. We take the reference of a geological section from a site adjacent to our sector for the development of the proposal, planning a ‘perforated basement’ and an architecture that has the ability of recognizing the strata in which it is inserted.
