Article source: UNStudio

As with many cities in China, Hangzhou is undergoing rapid urban change. Whilst the city centre has been beautifully developed around the West Lake area, opportunities for industry and commerce have shifted the city’s expansion towards the riverfront area in the South and towards the East, where the Hangzhou New District is located.

Di Piu in Vienna, Austria by Kohlmayr Lutter Knapp

Friday, May 25th, 2012

Article source: Kohlmayr Lutter Knapp

The design principle at the restaurant located in a downtown shopping mall in Vienna was to avoid establishing a spectacle located in a place of excessive percipience. First and foremost the people, the excellent food, the taste should be percepted not the design. The new skin, the visible layer, consists of modificated, recombined and low priced materials which are quite unusual for the use in an gastronomic environment. They receive new haptic and optic characteristics through it’s large scale adjustment.

Universidad EAN – El Nogal Campus in Bogotá, Colombia by Daniel Bonilla Arquitectos

Friday, May 25th, 2012

Article source: Daniel Bonilla Arquitectos

Universidad EAN – El Nogal Campus – Classroom building is the result of a competition by invitation, where we propose to set up a university campus where the buildings are as important as the common open spaces. A place where students can meet, study, rest, … a second home for education and fun. The strategy was to generate a large colective space, a central upward spiral, surrounded by a classroom building (Phase 1) and the offices and welfare building.

Ibiza Brues in Spain by CMV Architects

Thursday, May 24th, 2012

Article source: CMV Architects

The residential complex tries to emphasize the equality of the houses opening them towards the sea and avoiding the frontal views between the different parts of the same volume, managing to increase the sense of space. Therefore, a sinuous floor is designed directing the view of each unit towards different points of the bay. The building is made up of two volumes different in terms of uses, volumes and aesthetics. The main one is a ground floor with six plant floors above, whereas the secondary one rises in two heights assigned to be back-to-back duplex attached houses.

High School Classroom Building in Bogotá, Colombia by Daniel Bonilla Arquitectos

Thursday, May 24th, 2012

Article source: Daniel Bonilla Arquitectos

The High School building completes the group of classroom-buildings; therefore it resumes the usual typology of the existing buildings, a central open space and peripheral classrooms. It’s also chosen to use brick walls, the prevailing material in the school. The particular variation consists in developing a sinuous atrium with an internal garden. The exterior is defined by two closed sides facing the large green extensions, and by two glass facades with vertical sun shields where the classrooms operate.

City Centre in Nieuwegein, The Netherlands by Bureau B+B Urbanism and Landscape Architecture

Thursday, May 24th, 2012

Article source: Bureau B+B Urbanism and Landscape Architecture

In its earliest phase, at the start of the 1970s, construction activity in ‘new town’ Nieuwegein concentrated on its residential areas. Around when the city centre was about to have its turn, the economic climate offered little space for financing. The result was an introverted, cheap-looking shopping mall. Like many other ‘new towns’, Nieuwegein now faces the task of transforming the old shopping mall into a new vibrant heart. The structure inherited from the 1970s is to be subjected to a comprehensive revision.
