New Church of Våler Proposal in Norway by Francesco Fiotti (designed with 3DS Max)

Thursday, April 19th, 2012

Article source: Francesco Fiotti

Our proposal for the New Church of Våler is placed in the southern part of the project area in continuity with the ancient church, attempting to recover not only the orientation of it, but also the memory. The proposed design refers at the boat: the boat as a symbol of Christianity that welcomes and protects within it the faithful; the Drakkar as tribute at the exploratory tradition of the Norwegian people.

At the extension of the axis of the fifth avenue, pier museum becomes the ending of the urban space above the sea. The typology of building expresses the conversion and interaction of spatial energy. Simulating the natural growth, along the view toward the seascape in distance, the structure stretch from the beach end to the sea, converts the city space formed by street to a floating seascape terrace, planar pier evolutes to an organic structure, and provides the free path of promenade above the sea level.

Lotto-Turm in Stuttgart, Germany by Frohlocke

Thursday, April 19th, 2012

Article source: Frohlocke

The site “Österreichischer Platz“ is situated on the edge of Stuttgart’s city center.

Its function has not changed a bit in the last 40 years, it is surrounded by and isolated through highways, it is used as a parking lot and also as a meeting point for dubious people. The people have almost forgotten about it somehow after being in a bad state for years. But now the rhythm as well as the character of the surrounding highway will be interrupted by 55 piled-up sea containers
