Water Pavilion Siegen in Germany by Ian Shaw Architekten

Thursday, November 1st, 2012

Article source: Ian Shaw Architekten

The pavilion’s dramatic planar form articulates an assured, yet subtle compression of space, framing views of the lake and the local topography. The building’s tectonic rigour is palpable, its seemingly gravity defying configuration enabling the floor plate and ceiling to cantilever some 6m beyond the lakeshore.

Haileybury Astana School in Astana, Kazakistan by Cinici Architects

Haileybury, one of the Britain’s oldest and most prestigious independent boarding schools, has its Astana Campus situated on a 12 hectares site, with 20 000 m2 closed area. There were three challenges while developing the design idea of this campus: the vast and flat layout of the city, the complexity of the programme and the climatic conditions. The challenge of complexity aroused its counterpart, simplicity, as the main design strategy.

Sixty Colborne Presentation Centre in Toronto, Canada by Johnson Chou Inc.

Thursday, November 1st, 2012

Article source: Johnson Chou Inc.

Sixty Colborne is a 3,300 SF condominium presentation centre comprised of a sales area and a model suite created for Freed Developments and located in the St. Lawrence historical district of downtown Toronto.

Design Concept:

To create a building of paradoxes much like it’s site: a building of simple form juxtaposed against a context of a cacophony of form, detail and colour; to create a building passive by day and active at night; direct access from exterior yet complex interior movement and parti.
