CICERON II in Polanco, Mexico City by Dellekamp Arquitectos

Friday, July 20th, 2012

Article source: Dellekamp Arquitectos

This three-apartment penthouse building on the corner of Calle Cicerón, located in Mexico City’s high-end residential hub of Polanco, resorts to a single structural strategy for all its achievements. Instead of investing in façade design, it bets on a structure of clear-cut spatial intention that maximizes window view while preserving privacy.

Reorganization of the Victoria Kent Park in Sevilla, Spain by Antonio Blanco Montero

Friday, July 20th, 2012

Article source: Antonio Blanco Montero

The intervention takes place in a park area in which the expectations of the original project didn’t reach the estimated reactions, leaving a marginal area with no treatment other than the concrete block paving, out of scale and without an intended use. The situation is bound to lack of maintenance of urban furniture and equipment. It is detected lack of recreational areas, as the wooded areas are fenced with hedges that prevent people from resting in the shade.

Saijo Clinic in Tokyo, Japan by Aida Atelier, Inc.

Friday, July 20th, 2012

Article source:  Aida Atelier, Inc.

Saijo Clinic is a private mental health clinic with short-care/group-care programs on the 11th floor penthouse of a building facing Shinjuku Gyoen Park, 58ha urban park located in central Tokyo. The penthouse was originally built as a part of a gigantic signboard on rooftop. The sign graphic was later abolished by newly introduced landscape regulations, however, the space inside was left over. In designing the interior of the clinic, we sought to incorporate the extraordinary contrast between different urban scales.

Rose Library in Norman, Oklahoma by John Postic

Thursday, July 19th, 2012

Article source: John Postic

Libraries today serve as gathering places, community centers, and cafes. We need to stop viewing libraries as sacred temples of reading and research and more as a collective gathering place of people, ideas, events, and resources; a place that incites imagination and satisfies curiosity – a veritable flowering of culture. With a form that evokes the Oklahoma Rose, this library has a multi-layered skin that passively filters light, sound, and visitors to the library. These ‘petals’ diffuse the light entering the library, reducing solar heat gain and providing excellent reading light.

Manta Reactive Acoustic Surface by ARCHGEOMETER

Thursday, July 19th, 2012

Article source: ARCHGEOMETER

Manta is a surface that changes  form – and therefore acoustic character – in response to multimodal input through Open Sound Control [OSC], including stereoscopic vision, multi-touch, sound, and brainwaves. While adaptable acoustic treatments are common, Manta explores variability and responsiveness in the surface itself, advancing acoustic systems beyond individual elements and corrective treatment.
