Café 3 in Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York by Andre Kikoski Architect, PLLC

Saturday, January 14th, 2012

Article source: Andre Kikoski Architect, PLLC

This café serving espresso, wine and pastries is a compliment to and a comment on Wright’s design. Our intent is to make this an intervention in the space, within Wright’s language and his philosophy by shaping and transforming the iconic forms of the building. The threaded logic of these monolithic Corian planes and volumes moving through the space, allow the visitor to both create and experience the space’s kinetic energy simultaneously. These curves link our design not only with the museum’s architecture, but with its art as well. Kandinsky’s swooping lines and Stella’s restraint reverberate here. The café is simple, but says a lot; not tense minimalism, but calm purity. Like the museum, even when filled with a blur of moving bodies, it remains still.

Shanghai Zhangpu Civic Center in China by KDG group, INC

Saturday, January 14th, 2012

Article source: KDG group, INC

Shanghai Zhangpu civic center is an administration and government complex organized like a city and structured in three concepts, government, business and public services. The overall circular layout is based on the shape of local traditional jade ware, which symbolizes peace and harmony. The open layout with a central courtyard also expresses our hope for a more modern and friendly government. Many attempts are made for an environmentally friendly building, such as the wind turbines and solar panels installed on top the office building.

Hans Klotz limited company in Bolzano, Italy by Monovolume Architecture + Design (designed using ArchiCAD and Atlantis)

Saturday, January 14th, 2012

Article source: Monovolume Architecture + Design

Hans Klotz Ltd. is a long-established and successful wholesale company for fruit and vegetables with headquarter in Bozen-Sigmundskron. The new offices should be integrated into an existing building on the company area. To confer an independent character, the necessary spaces were added as an autonomous, two storey volume above the existing ground floor as a kind of architectural parasite. The new building takes up the roof lines of the old, then distorting them to open the volume on the north and west side, towards huge apple plantations. Hence the new construction allows an optimal orientation of the office spaces to the north, combined with a great outlook.

Residential church XL in Utrecht, The Netherlands by Zecc Architects

Saturday, January 14th, 2012

Article source: Zecc Architects

RESIDENTIAL CHURCH UTRECHT

Context

In the Netherlands there are hundreds of empty churches. Since 1970 more than 1000 churches are closed by church communities. More than 1/3 was demolished and half of the Catholic churches were thrown down. The coming years another 1000 churches will lose their original function. Fewer people go to church and the costs for conservation are no longer affordable. Fortunately, demolition is less common nowadays, partly because churches are often on the monuments list. Re-use is the only way to prevent long-lasting vacancy or demolition. The purpose of the Re-use of the St-Jakobuskerk was to revalue the dignified monument with little interventions as possible.

Al Haramain High-speed Rail Stations in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia by Foster + Partners

Saturday, January 14th, 2012

Article source: Foster + Partners

The Haramain High-speed Railway is a major infrastructure project for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, connecting the cities of Makkah, Madinah, Jeddah and the developing King Abdullah Economic City (KAEC). The stations are conceived as gateways to each city, filled with places to meet, shop, eat and shelter from the sun. Altogether, the large, flexible stations will cover an area more than 30 times the size of London’s Trafalgar Square and will initially accommodate an anticipated 60 million passengers – approximately six times the number of passengers that take the Eurostar from St Pancras each year. This is expected to increase to 135 million passengers by 2042.

Killarney Ice Rink + Lobby in Vancouver, British Columbia by Acton Ostry Architects Inc.

Saturday, January 14th, 2012

Article source: Acton Ostry Architects Inc.

The Killarney Ice Rink + Lobby project is a replacement of an existing ice rink and lobby at the Killarney Community Centre in Vancouver that is comprised of a swimming pool facility, an ice rink, a gymnasium, and other activity spaces. The renewal of the Killarney Community Centre complex improved access to the facility in order that it may continue to serve its vital role as a key social hub of the Killarney neighbourhood. The arena was designed to act as a short-track speed skating training venue for the 2010 Winter Games. After the completion of the Games, the international-size ice surface was converted to an NHL-sized rink with seating for 250 spectators for use by the community.
