Serving as a counterpoint to the Curved House, the Shed is located on a repurposed Cul-de-sac adjacent to the residence. The construction method is an exercise in celebrating the logic and clarity of prefabrication. Conceived as a kit of parts, the elegant building’s steel frame combines modular wall components, roof trusses, and battens, all of which were assembled on site and clad with a rain-screen of White Oak taken from the property.

The fold house is a study in concrete panel construction. One of the full scale prototypes created for the Boston Architecture College exhibition was a concrete panel wall with a tessellated surface. Vertical concrete panels were hinged one to the other establishing the folded geometric pattern. The underlying idea for this prototype is the driving force behind the Fold House. Here, concrete panels hinge upon one another to form a compressed surface.

Bio-Lake Reception Center in Hubei, China by Zephyr Architects

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

Article source: Zephyr Architects

As the central piece of architecture for the Guanggu Bio-lake campus, this reception center houses exhibition space, conference rooms and administration offices.

The building sits between a main plaza and central lake.  In a comparatively small piece of land, the architecture seeks to have a strong symbolic character.  In order to increase the overall impact of the architecture, the mass is treated as a sculpture in shape and texture.    This site is surrounded by buildings with varying viewpoints of the main project.  The multi-faceted box produces a façade of ever-changing viewpoints.
