Office Building E in Prague, Czech Republic by Aulík Fišer Architects

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

Article source: Aulík Fišer Architects

The office building E is the very last piece of development completing the northern part of the BB Center complex along Vyskocilova (street) and a ramp to 5.května (street). So, towards the city centre the bldg. E closes the planned “protection shield” against the negative impact of city highway traffic on residential houses planned for the second phase of development. This part of the Prague-Michle district has now been revitalized, reintroducing the urban environment with multiple functions and restoring it the way it was before the highway – 5.května street – completely destroyed it.

Pfizer Canada inc. Siège Social in Québec, Canada by Menkès Shooner Dagenais LeTourneux Architectes

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

Article source: Menkès Shooner Dagenais LeTourneux Architectes

The Pfizer Canada reconfiguration project makes a very clear statement. The architectural design focuses on promoting the corporate identity of the company located on the Trans-Canada Highway. The strategy is to use the building space in a transparent and expeditious manner through the prominence of glass in the structure in order to open the corporate headquarters to the world. To ensure a corporate image that is solidly embedded in the site, we worked around the idea of blister packs. This important feature of bio-pharmaceutical production is used as the visual key for the completion of the building facade, walls and furnishings.

AME-LOT in France by Malka Architecture

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

Article source: Malka Architecture

In reality, ecological strategies often generate an over-production of materials, becoming energy-vores and clients of factories, the polluters of the world. The real ecological combat is within the re-appropriation of materials and experimentation’s with ready-made objects, far from the so-called benevolence of subsidized agencies. The student housing on rue Amelot is a project that inserts itself into an urban interstice: the thickness of a blind wall.

La Fonte Gym in Sesto Fiorentino, Italy by Fabio Capanni Workshop

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

Article source: Fabio Capanni Workshop

Each and every project realized by Leonardo da Vinci, whether a building or a model airplane, was inspired by the human body. As such, this gym on the outskirts of Sesto Fiorentino, near Florence, can be considered a tribute to Leonardo’s work and genius. The copper plates covering the exterior of the gym makes the building look like muscle fiber. Thanks to the nail-less mounting, the plates are free to move and expand in accordance with one of copper’s key characteristic.

School of Music of the Polytechnic Institute of Lisbon, Portugal by João Luís Carrilho da Graça, architect

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

Article source: João Luís Carrilho da Graça, architect

When I first started working on this project I happened to be visiting Eero Saarinen’s School of Music in Ann Harbor. Even though the building is interesting, it struck me as odd that no music could be heard in the passageways, not even in the common spaces. At about the same time I watched a documentary about the Music Conservatory in Santiago de Cuba, it was an old colonial house filled with people, joy and music. For this project, I wanted to push to the limits the possibility of acoustic excellence – and also the seclusion and soundproofing of every space, as well as convey the conviviality and extroversion particular to certain musical practices.
