Transparent fusion of old pumping station and new playground in Netherlands by derksen|windt architecten

Thursday, November 7th, 2013

Article source: derksen|windt architecten

For the renovation of a dated brick pumping station  in the Netherlands, the Dutch architectural firm derksen|windt architecten added a semi-transparent and eye-catching layer to the building. The perforated aluminium façade creates an amalgamation of the building and the adjacent square. Two separate worlds become one where the surroundings and the pumping station acquire a contemporary and attractive character.

United Continental Headquarters in Chicago, Illinois by Ricardo Bofill Taller de Arquitectura

Thursday, November 7th, 2013

Article source: Ricardo Bofill Taller de Arquitectura

The project for this 50-storey office block sought to favour the possibility of a panoramic view over the city, so that there is an evident predominance of glass on the façade while nevertheless avoiding the formulaic glass tower of arbitrary forms. The existence of the American tradition of skyscraper construction, with some especially attractive examples inChicago, suggested the need to reestablish a dialogue between the classicism of stone and the high-tech of glass.

Article source: Hammer Architects

Located at the end of a shell-paved lane near Provincetown’s center, this comprehensive reconstruction of an 1820’s Colonial house with later additions, created a three-bedroom residence with a landscaped courtyard in a previously unused back yard. Great care was taken to blend the new construction with the scale and historic character of the surrounding homes.

MCDhouse in Texas by Adia

Tuesday, November 5th, 2013

Article source: Adia

Story: How a 22-year-old architecture student turned scraps into a sustainable paradise for a family in need.

The MCDhouse was built in cooperation with the Sustainable Builders’ Guild of Huntsville (Texas) as part of a local initiative to increase earth consciousness while providing homes for low-income families. Built to the minimum square footage allowed by law (for three residents), the house challenges the “hermetically-sealed box” mentality and sets out to prove that large enclosed homes are not necessary for comfort, functionality, and dignity.
