The Wright at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City by Andre Kikoski Architect, PLLC

Wednesday, February 1st, 2012

Article source: Andre Kikoski Architect, PLLC

It was both an incredible honor and an exhilarating challenge to create The Wright, the new restaurant at the Guggenheim Museum — which is the first addition to the building’s iconic interior. We sought to create a contemporary response to complement the building with an extremely modest budget and 1,600 square feet in which to work.

Reinventing the Crescent: Riverfront Development Plan in New Orleans, Louisiana by Eskew+Dumez+Ripple

Wednesday, February 1st, 2012

Article source: Eskew+Dumez+Ripple

New Orleans has long been dependent on its majestic river. The banks of the Mississippi River have served many purposes throughout the city’s history and are now poised to play a crucial new role. The city’s economy has suffered the slow loss of maritime activity due to port consolidation and sudden, comprehensive loss of civic stability due to Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

Wednesday, February 1st, 2012

Article source: Shim-Sutcliffe Architects

The Integral House creates a place for architecture, music, and performance located at the threshold between Toronto’s urban fabric and its extensive natural ravine system.

The design process was iterative – typically it would start with a hand sketch, or a physical model, which would then be further developed using AutoCAD, and / or Rhino, depending on the item.

Located at Incheon Airport in Korea, this 250 sm project seeks to create an exclusive environment to offer unique travel assistance for HyundaiCard Black members. As a counterpoint to the surrounding visual noise and frenzied airport activity, the proposed parti is deceptively simple, with functions arranged in a freestanding “black box”.

Record House Revisited in Owings Mill, Maryland by David Jameson Architect

Wednesday, February 1st, 2012

Article source: David Jameson Architect

Four decades after their project was featured in the 1969 Record Houses issue of Architectural Record, the owners sold the house to a young couple. A condition of the sale was that the new owners would respect the character of the project, yet be able to revisit and alter the contained quality of the interior rooms to create a continuous living space visually connected to the woodland site.
