Building the head offices of a social housing operator is a unique and symbolic act. For the public and the operator’s various partners, the building needs to embody and reflect the values of Aquitanis. It needs to convey a gentle form of symbolism.

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013

Article source: Architect Show Co.,Ltd

This was an existing residential lot with homes on the east, west, and south. Across the street to the north is a park. We began work on the design using the primary concept of harmonization with the park’s lush greenery. We tried to create a facade design that incorporated a lot of the park’s greenery, where local people gathered to relax.

When I moved to from Rome to Shanghai I noticed many environmental differences. One was the fact that when I looked out the window here, it didn’t give me the same good feeling like it usually did in Rome. It was probably a combination of the grey buildings, the immortal grey sky and the fact you couldn’t open the window due to the outside air pollution.

Bursa Wholesale Greengrocers and Fishmongers Market in Turkey by Tuncer Cakmakli Architects

Friday, October 25th, 2013

Article source: Tuncer Cakmakli Architects

Bursa was the first capital of the Ottoman Empire and is today the center of manufacturing in Turkey, leading the field in the automotive and textile industries.

But the city is also a natural wonder: it sits at the base of the 2.000 meter-high Uludağ mountain, which is the location of the country’s first ski resort, and the city is also host to natural springs whose waters have long been thought to be therapeutic. Moreover, the fertile grounds around Bursa produce some of the country’s best produce.

Noord in Barneveld, Netherlands by NL Architects

Friday, October 25th, 2013

Article source: NL Architects

ProRail, responsible for the railway network in the Netherlands, together with the so called spoorbouwmeester Koen van Velsen (‘the national supervisor for railway architecture’) started a campaign to make waiting more comfortable: Prettig Wachten.

Travelers experience waiting on a station as much longer then waiting within a vehicle. Surveys have indicated that waiting time is experienced as 3 times longer than it actually is. In this respect especially small and medium sized stations proof a big challenge. These smaller stations are usually unmanned, desolate, often creating a sense un-safety. What can we do to improve them?

Completed in 2010, 903 Poydras Street is the first residential high-rise constructed in downtown New Orleans since Hurricane Katrina.

The 21-story, 462,000-square-foot mixed-use residential space building is comprised of 10,000 square feet of retail space at street level, plus residential tenant space that includes 250 apartments, a lobby, pool deck, and fitness center, and a 500 car garage. The architects at Eskew+Dumez+Ripple designed the building to stand out of the crowd of commercial office towers, and to reflect the city’s signature sense of place – a place of community and belonging.
