Construction start of MVRDV Glass Farm, Schijndel, Netherlands

In 1944 the small Brabant town of Schijndel which is the birthplace of Winy Maas suffered from Operation Market Garden bombings resulting in an oversized market square. In 1980 the then 20 year old Winy Maas urged the mayor to fill in the gap. Today Rembrand developers, the town of Schijndel and MVRDV start construction on the Glass Farm, a multifunctional building in the village square. The building with a total surface area of 1600m2 will contain shops, restaurants, offices and a wellness centre. The exterior is printed glass with the motive of a typical local farm; 1,6 times larger than life. Construction will be completed in December 2012.

Farmyard, 4 houses at Oud-Empel in The Netherlands by Hilberink Bosch Architecten

Friday, March 30th, 2012

Article source: Hilberink Bosch Architecten

Due to the demolition of several old sheds a unique plot became vacant in Oud-Empel. Oud-Empel is a small village situated along side embankment of the river Maas. The dike divides the village in two parts: the unsafe waterfront where the smaller labourers cottages are situated and a protected side with the large farms and small factories and where the notables lived. With respect to this historical setting four new volumes are scattered loosely on the protected location. The volumes make a characteristic historical composition of a farmyard with a large brick house with barns. But instead a agricultural function this barnyard has a residential function.

Flor del Campo in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia by Giancarlo Mazzanti + Felipe Mesa

Friday, March 30th, 2012

Article source: Giancarlo Mazzanti + Felipe Mesa

This project is characterized by four “Rings”, each of which is defined by two levels with different thicknesses, rounding different playgrounds. The perimeter is as important as the interior space formed by the rings, projecting physical areas that can express the function that will be developed. It was inspired by the shapes of tropical plants and trees in the area, taking us to a recreational atmosphere of games, educational exchanges, etc.

Amsterdam Airport Schiphol Hotel in The Netherlands by Mecanoo

Friday, March 30th, 2012

Article source: Mecanoo

Iconic appearance
The new Hilton Amsterdam Airport Schiphol hotel is situated in a prominent location alongside the access roads to the international airport terminal. Because the hotel is twisted from the plinth by 45 degrees, one of the facades faces the Ceintuurbaan. This gives the hotel not only momentum, but also a visual connection with the office strip. The building is the final chord of the staccato rhythm of the WTC towers and a welcoming icon to both the Schiphol boulevard and the Ceintuurbaan. The hotel, which features a cubic design and round edges, will differ subtly from its surroundings in both shape and facade. All surrounding buildings at the airport, mainly office buildings, have orthogonal organized facades.
