UNIRE/UNITE at MAXXI in Roma, ltalia by Robyne Kassen

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

Article source: Robyne Kassen

Project to inspire the concept of UNITY on all levels. The personal level connecting mind and body, invites users to experience new perceptions and connections of mind and body through yogic and supportive forms to recalibrate the senses. The collective level, binding all individuals as a unified global family with the understanding of mutual care by accessible and inclusive design, and the Infinity System, a 40 meter long curved seating structure joining together all users on a single surface. Read from the gallery above, the words UN IRE/UNITE read as a reminder to the expansion that occurs when we rise to the collective consciousness, simultaneously uniting interior and exterior.

Daphne in Santorini, Greece by 24D-Studio

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

Article source: 24D-Studio

Daphne is a site-specific installation situated within the tunneled stairway that interplays with the notion of concealing and revealing the ancient interior surfaces of the tunnel leading to the peak of Pyrgos. Made entirely of self-supporting paper panels, Daphne creates an enclosure that intervenes the visitors’ perception of the existing conditions as a container of conglomerated memory as the paper panels age and take their shape accordingly to the local condition. The installation is part of Santorini Biennale of Arts that will take place until September 30, 2012.

‘SEAT’ Public Pavilion in Freedom Park at Atlanta, GA by E/B Office (Yong Ju Lee and Brian Brush)

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

Article source: E/B Office

Sitting is perhaps the most common condition from which we experience architecture. Whether we work, relax, watch, eat, sleep, or talk to each other, sitting is at the core of our relationship to buildings. Sitting enables the detached observation of our lives in space and time, whether it’s to look upon the buildings we inhabit, or look out from them, towards the cultural milieu that surrounds. Sitting enables a perception of the other and beyond opposite the inclusivity and interiority of our personal spaces that we carry with us. It conditions a cosmological covenant between one’s body and one’s place in architecture. It produces a body space continuum. Sitting structures our habitable spaces from within to without, determining the proportions of useable objects, forms, spaces, dimensions, and relationships in an unfolding sequence of architectonic layers.

Paris Market Lab in France by Márcio Rodrigues

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

Article source: Márcio Rodrigues

The central idea for this project is to preserve the existent building. We consider it as a crucial part of the urban fabric and his demolition would mean a huge gap in the Rue de Seine street facade.

Program
The program is the main point of Exploration since we are dealing with a pre-existance. In that way, we start to design a ground floor which establishes more relations with the city. The store has direct contact with the street and the class rooms are positioned in the ground level. The auditorium is one level below the ground along with the administrative areas. This is what we call “the daily uses”.

Majima Clinic in Nagoya, Japan by D.I.G Architects

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

Article source: D.I.G Architects

Reinterpretation of typical elements of wooden architecture ; folded space.

We tried to reinterpret the traditional appearance of wooden architecture, pitched roof and big canopy, under the concept of “folding” referred to “ORIGAMI”- a traditional Japanese paper work.

The roof, wall and canopy- the outer elements of architecture- are integrated and considered as a sheet of paper, split off and folded to each direction like “ORIGAMI”. The gesture of “ORIGAMI” brings the gaps and openings to the space underneath, generates the light, flow lines and the functions. The folded skin obscures the architectural articulations and boundaries, integrates the separated functions into one volume. Openness and closeness seamlessly continues, visitors would find themselves in the entirety and separation at the same time, ambiguous space.

Aurora Borealis Observatory by Marcio Rodrigues

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

Article source: Marcio Rodrigues

Universe, nature, man_these are the fundamental ideas behind our project. The conceptual approach was the analysis of the ancient monuments where, for the first time, Man started to connect with the skies. At the same time, we know that Man started to understand the sky, when he groups the several stars. Those constellations inspired us and one of the most visible and know throughout the world is Orion. This created a basis to understand a constellation in an architecture point of view and helped us to organize the program, the space and the circulations.
