Ico Migliore describes it like this: “A place of discovery, reinterpreting a natural horizon through light, transparency and the suggestion of colour for Atelier Alcantara® and the launch of its innovative collection of bags and accessories.”

Alcantara® took part in Pitti Uomo 2012 with the first A di Alcantara® collection for men. The MIGLIORE + SERVETTO ARCHITETTI ASSOCIATI architectural studio has designed and created a distinct concept for the occasion: a delicate enclosure of light and shade set in a landscape of discovery, punctuated by a series of lights.

Hancock Lofts in West Hollywood, California by Koning Eizenberg Architecture (designed using Revit and SketchUp)

Friday, April 6th, 2012

Article source: Koning Eizenberg Architecture

A developer/architect team was selected by the City of West Hollywood to develop a city owned site, address a shortage of parking, and flush out a program for housing and retail space through a community process. The design’s non-conventional approach leverages the irregular, sloping lot to reinforce street life as well as create an unexpected roof top open space. Public parking is located underground while residential parking loops up and over street level housing to place an active use along the side street. Architectural expression is rooted in sustainable strategies. All units are cross ventilated and sliding wood screens are used to shade boulevard flats and moderate the level of engagement with the busy street below.

Church Cloister in Nijmegen, the Netherlands by diederendirrix architects

Friday, April 6th, 2012

Article source: Diederendirrix

In this design, church and cloister become one compact entity. The flowing line from the somewhat closed facade together with the prominent bell tower draws the visitor to the entrance of the church. The Mariakapel is gracefully incorporated into the curve of the facade. Once inside, the colossal building turns out to be a light, modern and multifunctional Roman Catholic centre. The church offers seating to 150 people and a sliding wall creates space for 100 more by opening up the conference room which lies behind.

Sandworm in Wenduine, Belgium by Marco Casagrande

Thursday, April 5th, 2012

Article source: Marco Casagrande

Sandworm is an organic structure/space/creature realized on the dunes of the Wenduine coastline, Belgium. The 45 meters long and 10 m wide and high installation moves freely in-between architecture and environmental art and is constructed entirely out of willow following the local knowledge of a continuing interaction between work and environment. Casagrande worked hard with his team of young architects and local experts for 4 weeks in order to create something that he describes as “weak architecture” – a human made structure that wishes to become part of nature through flexibility and organic presence.
