In line with its new policies on pre-college education, Republic of Turkey’s Ministry of Education is planning to build 33 new campuses on various locations all around the country, with a capacity of approximately 12.000 students each.

Gaurav Gupta Couture

Saturday, August 3rd, 2013

Article source: Gaurav Gupta

The concept of the store is born out of the duality of Gaurav’s collections for his Pret and Couture lines.

This 1200 sq ft space is conceived as an immersive environment sculpted in monochrome. Sinuously wrapping cast concrete walls seem to surreally float within the relatively tight volume, and slice the space into two zones without dividing it balancing a constant sense of reveal and discovery.

Article source: T38 Studio

On a site where we are designing 11 single family homes, HDJ86 is one of the first ones to be finished. Built in Tijuana, we have taken advantage of the increidible construction craft that is available, in which construction workers have worked in both the USA and Mexico, so they can perfectly execute construction techniques used in both countries. Each one of the houses is different and deals with different issues and concerns that we have.

NYC Tower Proposal in South Street Seaport, New York by MA2

Saturday, August 3rd, 2013

Article source: MA2

The concept proposal is located in Manhattan’s South Street Seaport as an office tower with an adjacent parking structure. In its inception the tower is a product of preserving angles within a complex plane grid, which has been interfered by a Mobius geometric transformation. By manipulating a two-dimensional grid using asymptotic developments, it generates a series of automorphing patterns and higher dimensional structures.
