Feathered Edge in Los Angeles, California by Ball-Nogues Studio

Thursday, April 5th, 2012

Article source: Ball-Nogues Studio

Feathered Edgewas commissioned by the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. The project explores the convergence of digital technology and craft. It is one in a series of installations curated by Brooke Hodge and Alma Ruiz. Integrating complex digital computation, mechanization, and printing with traditional handcrafted production techniques, Feathered Edge explores our desire to alter a space with fluid architectural forms that require a minimal use of material while utilizing a new proprietary technique that yields the effect of three dimensional spatial constructs “printed” to resemble objects hovering in space.

PennRose by Han Tang

Pennrose combines the zest of a joyful event space with rigorous research into new material and digital fabrication.

Pennrose will immerse the viewer in kaleidoscopic pattern of color created by sunlight filtering through an array of translucent, tinted mylar petals that resemble blossoming flowers of stained glass. the piece functioned as a shade structure. the interior of this experimental installation created a beckoning outdoor room for social interaction and contemplation by changing the space, color and light. during the day as the sun passed overhead, the canopy cast colored fractal light patterns onto the ground while during the night, when standing underneath and gazing upward, the visitor could see the infinite sky.

California Dreaming in Tasmania, Australia by Bild Architecture (designed with Rhino 3D)

Thursday, April 5th, 2012

Article source: Bild Architecture

California Dreamingis one of a continuing series of projects exploring adaptations of Australian suburban typologies to contemporary housing requirements. Located in an area of inner-urban Launceston originally developed with inter-war ‘California Bungalow’ type housing, the project adapts and co-ops this typology to contemporary living styles and expectations for a pair of duplex residential units.Unfashionable for many years this area of the city lay dormantafter its initial wave of development, preserving an enclave of inter-war speculative housing. However in recent years, with sudden gentrification, the area has seen a new wave of housing occupying the abundant infill opportunities. These new occupants, reflective of contemporary ways of living and ways of building sit in stark contrast with the area’s original houses.

Bird Watching Spot in Asuncion, Paraguay by Pedro Barrail + Marcelo Barrail + Lourdes Mendez (designed with SketchUp Pro)

Wednesday, April 4th, 2012

Article source: Pedro Barrail

This project is a bird watching spot. Fundacion milenio and hsbc bank financed it. This place is very important, because asuncion has always been looking away from the river, and with these types of proyects they are finally looking towards the river. This area is a bay, and is very important for bird migration, because hundreds of bird species rest in this area in order to continue their journey, so not only do you see native birds, but also exotic ones. Asuncion has almost lost it’s integration to nature, however, projects like these are trying to strengthen that bond.

Gaia Ropeway Cablecar in Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal by Guedes + de Campos

Wednesday, April 4th, 2012

Article source: Guedes + de Campos

The challenge of the project is to intervene in the impressive scenario of the new Serra do Pilar – Cais de Gaia axis and, simultaneously, harmonising it with the technological complexity of a cable car. Basically it was also a question of creating a new – axial, functional and visual – urban axis characterised by the introduction of a very strong movement in the landscape. This typology was proposed for the city of Vila Nova de Gaia with a ludic and functional approach with the aim of energising the site and the tourist offer connecting the Port wine lodges and the riverfront (with its many restaurants and bars) to the metro and Serra do Pilar on the higher level.

Rowing and Sailing Pavilions in Bizkaia, Spain by abar + MdG + Julen Altuna

Wednesday, April 4th, 2012

Article source: abar + MdG + Julen Altuna

The location of this suite of pavilions dedicated to the practice of rowing and sailing is one of the ends of the Marina, in front of the ramp that descends to the mouth of the estuary, between the curved breakwater that encloses the Marina and the docks ending at the Arriluze lighthouse. From the site, besides the Abra, one can see Monte Serantes, the Arboleda, the Pagasarri, Punta Lu­cero and the Ganekogorta; it is therefore a loca­tion with a great urban presence that, when the project was drawn up, was used as an improvised open-air car park.
