VIA University College in Aarhus, Denmark by Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects

Wednesday, February 6th, 2013

Article source: Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects 

The aim of the new campus is to help consolidate the activities at one of Denmark’s largest educational institutions. Covering approximately 27,000 square metres, the complex will bring together the many specialist disciplines under one roof and create links and cohesion across disciplines. The vision is to create a flexible, dynamic, cross-disciplinary study environment where students, lecturers and visitors can meet, knowledge can be shared, and ideas can come into being. A central plaza located in the midst of the four wings of the building will act as a meeting place for approximately 2,000 students who will be spending their days on campus in the future. Above the plaza, the building will open up towards the sky and draw the daylight in, while balconies and terraces will define the atrium beneath the expansive light from above.

Rafael Vinoly Architects is proud to announce that the University South Carolina celebrated the “Topping Out” of the new building for the Darla Moore School of Business in a ceremony today held at the construction site. The Darla Moore School of Business, globally renowned for its international business program, has until now been housed in a 1970s-era building located near the university’s historic Horseshoe, site of the original campus established in 1801. The new building—designed by Rafael Viñoly Architects and commissioned by alumna and namesake Darla Moore through a $70 million donation—will provide an environment well suited to answer the challenges of a 21st century business school.

Podčetrtek Traffic Circle in Podčetrtek, Slovenia by ENOTA Architects

Wednesday, February 6th, 2013

Article source: ENOTA Architects

The Podčetrtek Traffic Circle is built on a regional road located between the municipal sports hall with open-air sports grounds on one side and a spa centre with numerous swimming pools and hotels on the other side. It is primarily intended to slow down the traffic in this consequently very busy area as the main accesses to both complexes also connect to the traffic circle. The design of the roundabout’s central island thus references the appearance of both facilities and marks the entrance points to the destinations of the visitors to either of the programme centers.

Alejandra House in Rosario, Argentina by Cekada-Romanos Arquitectos

Wednesday, February 6th, 2013

Article source: Cekada-Romanos Arquitectos

The house is located in a neighborhood not yet fully developed on the outskirts of Rosario. The landscape has the rural character of the Pampas, with fields and orchards along with warehouses and criollo brick kilns (named for the vernacular technique of fabricating clay bricks by hand). The design strategy looks for a compact country house, located on the south side of the lot in order to capture sunlight and to open a large garden area. The shape is the result of a volume subjected to cuts and operations of subtraction.

Novo Mesto Central Market in Slovenia by ENOTA

Wednesday, February 6th, 2013

Article source: ENOTA

The backbone of the new central market is formed by the covered Market Street, which lies on the level of main city square and connects the two spots closest to it on both access streets. The programme of the new central market is thus divided into two floors, one on the level of main square and the other on the level of Florjanov Square on the other side of the city block. The lower floor is partially dug in and features indoor trading and service surfaces, while the upper floor
is intended for the covered market and opens to all sides.

Municipal Library of Greve in Chianti, Italy by mdu architetti

Tuesday, February 5th, 2013

Article source: mdu architetti

The New Municipal Library of Greve in Chianti, designed by mdu architetti, represents a further step, after the opening of the New Theatre of Montalto di Castro (Italy), in a period of prolific output for this Italian architecture studio, engaged in the realization of several projects inspired by a common thread: architecture as an urban fragment. The Libray of Greve in Chianti  interprets the theme, presenting itself as a light  sculptural volume in terracotta leaned on a travertine stone plinth. The terracotta facade, with its subtle texturals and graphic variations, is conceived as an abstract representation of the signs and colours in the  vineyards of the Chianti region.

The 3600 square foot home is set into a rustic forest on the shores of the Georgian Bay.
