First of May Neighborhood in Santa Fe, Argentina by CBAyA

Tuesday, June 25th, 2013

Article source: CBAyA 

Contemporary cities are shaped as the result of the tension between the will of the state, (theoretically) representative of citizens, and the Market. The struggle between these actors has conditioned, for better or worse, the urban image and even more importantly the lives of all inhabitants. This conditional relationship on a macro scale can be read in the micro scale as well, in each of the buildings that make up the urban scene.

Goolwa Beach House in South Australia by Grieve Gillett

Tuesday, June 25th, 2013

Article source: Grieve Gillett

The brief called for a low maintenance dwelling (used in the first instance as a weekend retreat and later to become a permanent dwelling) that would engage with its great location.  It is in a highly corrosive environment 250 metres from breaking surf.  The southern (rear) boundary of the site abuts a coastal reserve containing primary, secondary and tertiary dunes.  The house has been sited to maximise its relationship and connection to this wonderful dune landscape and the external materials chosen will weather to reflect the exposure of the site.

The Depot is a major installation and venue that has been built primarily for the 2013 Adelaide Fringe Festival with the intention of becoming a long term facility. It is located on land previously used as Adelaide’s main bus station (intrastate and interstate). The Depot has been designed to invigorate the City’s West End precinct at a time when much of the Adelaide Fringe focus is at the East End of the city.

THEN? in Shizuoka, Japan by N Maeda Atelier

Monday, June 24th, 2013

Article source: Norisada Maeda

It was the one that “I wanted to prepare “Plate” that undertook grand scenery (mountain level) in front of the site” this stood in land and it had entered my body personally first.In it, it hoped even in the construction that would remain inevitably and it was hoped to “Plate” (landscape) to be buried in construct.
Do not do anything.

WEB in Morioka, Japan by N Maeda Atelier

Monday, June 24th, 2013

Article source: Norisada Maeda

WEB is made of very simple rules. Instead of the common method of taking a predetermined rectangular planar form and working out a puzzle how to arrange the rooms in a well-behaved manner, we take one large cuboid (white) and violently thrust into it five small cuboid boxes (exposed concrete) of different sizes and directions. Externally, it appears to have many protrusions, but the concept of WEB is to live in that space full of protrusions, as it is.

Terranuova Bracciolini Residential building in Arezzo, Italy by Mauro Alpini

Monday, June 24th, 2013

Article source: Mauro Alpini

The history of the city, particularly the city of foundation as Newfoundland Bracciolini teach as these are always involved in processes of transformation and how time has changed shape, changed the contours which in turn were contracted, frayed, cut and forgotten . Today more and more often we are called to work in this jumble of signs and traces, to build in this man-layered dense structure of words, regulations, differences, which in turn characterize the physical social statement.
