Druk White Lotus School in Indus Valley, India by Arup Associates

Saturday, September 29th, 2012

Article source: Arup Associates

The Druk White Lotus School is located in the Indus Valley, Northern India. An environment of extremes, and lying at 3,500m above sea level, this is a high-altitude desert landscape where temperatures fall to -30 degrees Celcius in winter; for about five months of each year the region is cut off from the rest of India by snow.
The challenge was to create a centre of local culture, education and communication that integrates the region of Ladakh’s unique cultural and architectural heritage with appropriate opportunities to be found in contemporary design.

House of ISM in Chiba, Japan by International Royal Architecture (I.R.A)

Saturday, September 29th, 2012

Article source: International Royal Architecture (I.R.A)

It is the area developed on a large scale as resort property of a bubble period near by from the sea. Most of other sites are untouched and the owner of land and right relocation of a site boundary or a road are not certain. This cottage for a client who likes fishing stands to a site like a vast weeds place.

Neither the sea nor a mountain nor beautiful green can necessarily be seen from here. The impressive house that has the form of the white arrow was built to the site without an important context.

Article source: Acme Architecture

Founded in 1972, the Isla Vista Food Cooperative is the only natural and organic foods consumer cooperative in Santa Barbara County. Though a mainstay in the community, the Co-op was often ignored by pedestrians, not realizing what lay behind its inconspicuous storefront.

University of Houston Stadium Parking Garage in Houston, Texas by WHR Architects

Saturday, September 29th, 2012

Article source: WHR Architects

Designed by WHR Architects, University of Houston Stadium Parking Garage parking provides far more that parking. The 2,300 car facility contains a Barnes & Nobel Fan Shop, Cougar Express Mini Market, Taco Cabana restaurant, offices for UH Parking and Transportation and UH Parking Customer Services. With 85% of the university’s nearly 40,000 students commuting from around the sprawling City of Houston and its suburbs, reimagining the garage as an amenity project made sense for several reasons.

Visitor Centre in Australia by Jonathan Gibb – Architect

Saturday, September 29th, 2012

Article source: Jonathan Gibb – Architect

The split form is at once an ode to the landforms of the genus loci (rock out-crops) and the cultural interweave of local cultures. The building is distinctly two forms, the same yet mirrored & reversed to give a individuality & yet allowing each to speak – open faced to one another in constant dialogue. This dialogue is continued to the landscape by the form of the building, mimicking the shafts of rock and forming of stairs.

Müller-Guttenbrun-Schule in Buchen, Germany by Trapez Architektur Dirk Landwehr

Saturday, September 29th, 2012

Article source: Trapez Architektur Dirk Landwehr

Orientation, scale and the reference to the diversity of outdoor spaces were factors determining the form of the new school building. The historically listed existing structure was the starting point of a new ensemble of buildings which were lined up and rotated to form the central organizing principle, an ‘inner-path’ providing not only for circulation, but also break-out areas providing a variety of functions.

MG9 – Margaretenstraße 9 in Vienna, Austria by Josef Weichenberger architects + Partner

Saturday, September 29th, 2012

Article source: Josef Weichenberger architects + Partner

A three story rooftop extension was added to an existing Wilhelminian-times house.

Plans of the four new spacious apartments – one of them a maisonette – were developed from a complex set of geometric reference grids, which were derived from the shape of the irregular 5-street intersection of Operngasse and Margeretenstraße in vienna.
