Article source: OMA

T3-house in Fukuoka, Japan by Architect Show Co.,Ltd

Friday, October 25th, 2013

Article source: Architect Show Co.,Ltd

The site was a wood frame apartment building surrounded on all four sides by schools and existing housing. It was a limited space in the center of town, which demanded a design that ensured a high-quality environment. Increasing the stiffness enabled the use of design aspects that are not possible to use with ordinary wood frame housing.

Article source: EeStairs America Inc.

Along a coastal main street in southern Honolulu, Hawaii, a large shopping plaza is remodeling its three, street level entryways that access its underground shops. As specified in the original design, all balustrades are curved as each staircase has flare characteristics, which in turn, gives the openings a complimentary circular nature.

Energizing Downtown in Detroit by Incite Design

Thursday, October 24th, 2013

Article source: Incite Design

Detroit is a unique city in so many ways. It has a rich heritage but has perhaps more important in our view is its potential for embracing new ways of inhabiting spaces. Our goal was to bring the vibrancy and possibility back to the city in the form of a structure that brings together ingenuity and thoughtfulness to this site. We wanted to look forward to the promise of something re-imagined but also acknowledge what was there before and propose as part of the project a digital repository where citizens can contribute to the shared memories.
