Seminar and Conference Cristal in Tyrol, Austria by MHM architects

Tuesday, September 18th, 2012

Article source: MHM architects

Already for many years the therapeutical treatment of physical and emotional disturbances or illnesses by the application of light has been acknowledged medically. Light has different effects on the human body depending on the spectral colour: so a firm red has an exciting effect  while violet light seems calming.

Feldbalz House in Zürich, Switzerland by Gus Wustemann Architects

Monday, September 17th, 2012

Article source: Gus Wüstemann Architects

This project is not a house but a family sculpture looking for freedom and social interaction. The created sculpture contains family life, where everybody meets and circulates on the first floor, while providing a great view over the lake of Zurich.

This sculpture separates the parents’ area, which is on top of the shape and the children’s area, which lies underneath. The whole construction rests on the volume of the fireplace; an element of content and emotion.

Sunday, September 16th, 2012

Article source: Eduardo V. Flores

The theme of sustainability became mandatory today. Residential, commercial environments, building sites of any scale must be sensitive not only to reuse, as well as the adaptation of materials in use which until then was very different purposes for the construction.
And it was precisely in this spirit of recycling and reuse coupled with countless aesthetic possibilities that this project was prepared.

Cities Of The Future by Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture

Sunday, September 16th, 2012

Article source: Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture

KKA presents two visionary cities of the future. These stories are raising questions on how we can coexist with the nature and technology surrounding us, what kind of spaces that are left for human life in an ever more congested world.


Once there was a city that moved underground. During many centuries it had spread over ever larger areas absorbing its neighbouring cities and eventually covering almost a whole continent with urban fabric. Food was grown in towers and warehouses, agricultural land and parks were too valuable not to be covered with buildings. With time the desire for nature grew stronger among the inhabitants; they dreamed of walking in a forest, going fishing, listening to birds, or climbing a mountain.

Generationen Wohnen Am Muehlgrund in Vienna, Austria by ARTEC Architekten

Sunday, September 16th, 2012

Article source: ARTEC Architekten

The Vienna rapid-transit line known as U2 originates at Karlsplatz and heads north, crossing the Danube. In Stadlau the tracks are elevated and pass over a train station. Just to the north of this convergence lies the Stadlau rapid-transit station. The tracks continue on, turning to the east and still elevated – at a height of 12 metres in this segment, and each direction supported separately. Parallel and to the south of the elevated tracks, at a distance of 8 to 12 metres from them, is the site of the 7-storey, 90-metre-long, 15-metre-wide building – the allowable massing determined by an urban design competition. The bar-shaped building, with only a minimal strip of land surrounding it, screens the low-slung structures to the south – also just recently completed – from the tracks.
