The house is designed for a couple, and is a wooden three stories house that is built at urban narrow site. Around the site is the mixed-use area where small houses, small factories, and small office buildings coexist together without any harmony.

Article source: MAD Architects

Modernism has a famous motto: A house is a machine for living in. However, as we progress further away from the machine age, we are left with a question: what message should architecture convey? What is the house of today?

Saint-Hyacinthe Aquatic And Recreational Centre in Québec, Canada, ACDF Architecture-Urbanisme-Intérieur

Friday, January 11th, 2013

Article source: ACDF Architecture-Urbanisme-Intérieur

The expression of St. Hyacinthe’s Aquatic and Recreational Centre reflects a trend of modernity. The allegorical representation of a glacier appears as an imposing fragment on the natural landscape.   Across the flat horizon, the floating triangular masses of the building seek to anchor themselves with the ground. This scene is not alien to the Monteregian area of Québec, with its landscape of ancient eroded mountains forming a backdrop for the rectilinear farmland patterns of the area.

Casa AV Summer House in Mar Azul, Argentina by BAK Architectos

Friday, January 11th, 2013

Article source: BAK Architectos

This work is the result of a process that began in 2004 with the construction of a summer house in the forest of Mar Azul.

It was about intervening in an area of outstanding natural beauty, owner of a wild strong presence that gradually has been domesticated by the proliferation of constructions with a formal search between a bucolic character and picturesqueness which in no way refer to that environment nor to this present.

Offices for Consejo Consultivo Castilla León in Zamora, Spain by Alberto Campo Baeza

Friday, January 11th, 2013

Article source: Alberto Campo Baeza

Facing the cathedral and following the outline of the former convent’s kitchen garden, we erect a strong stone wall box open to the sky. Its walls and floors entirely made of stone. The very same stone as the Cathedral. A real Hortus Conclusus. In the corner facing the cathedral, a massive stone measuring 250x150x50 cm, a veritable Cornerstone. And chiselled on that stone:

Affordable Housing For Young Families in Tuscany, Italy By Studiostudio Architettiurbanisti

Friday, January 11th, 2013

Article source: Studiostudio Architettiurbanisti

The design of the settlement layout is based on the recognition of landform. The project re-proposes latent settlement rules, yet consolidated, able to recover the structuring capacity of the layout and its landscape value.

Six buildings of 60 m long are arranged in the lot according to a north-south orientation with slightly changes in direction. A wall of dry stone delimits the project on the west side and marks the boundary between the industrial area and the new residential compound on the edge of the Tavola old village.
