Galeria Adriana Varejão in Minas Gerais, Brazil by Tacoa Arquitetos

Saturday, February 9th, 2013

Article source: Tacoa Arquitetos

Inhotim Centro de Arte Contemporânea is located in Brumadinho, a village near Belo Horizonte, the capital of Minas Gerais state. A personal initiative of the mining industry businessman Bernardo Paz, the museum has an unusual architectural concept. Instead of sum up all its installations into a unique building, it is composed of many pavilions spread out in a park of approximately 35 hectares.

Irène PAR in Montreal, Canada by Kanva Architecture

Saturday, February 9th, 2013

Article source: Kanva Architecture

The urban housing project, Irène, located in Montreal’s borough, St-Henri, exemplifies innovation as a valuable design tool to individualize a building within the City. Perforated aluminium panels were customized into a novel exterior building envelope that screens the upper three storeys of an addition above an existing industrial building. Drawing an analogy with a theatrical curtain, the metallic skin acts equally to veil and to reveal the activity within, serving a per-formative function that adds a touch of spectacle to the neighbourhood.

House Extension in Nantes, France by Avignon-Clouet Architectes

Saturday, February 9th, 2013

Article source: Avignon-Clouet Architectes

A long wooded corridor lined with services (laundry, bathroom, dressing, toilets) leads to panoramic bedrooms overhanging the garden, via two hidden stairs. Between these two volumes is inserted a room opened outwards. To create the interface with the current house, the new volume is completely glazed. It  gives the impression of a levitating architecture that wouldn’t dare resting on the ground of this limited landscape area.

Essence Financial Building in Shenzhen, China by OMA

Saturday, February 9th, 2013

Article source: OMA

Shenzhen’s Futian CBD is developing at a frenetic speed. The last 100 years of development in building styles are condensed into a mere decade. Populated by a range of office towers of different generations, the city is ready for the next leap forward from a manufacturing city into a services hub. A brand new generation of office towers concomitant with another rapid transformation calls for a moment of unruffled consideration about the way forward: how the emergent forces in business and society could shape a contemporary office tower typology…

Remodeling Molinao Park in Spain by Vaumm Arkitektura

Saturday, February 9th, 2013

Article source: Vaumm Arkitektura

The proposal of Molinao Park pretends to be the continuity of the park situated along the riverside and the eastern end of the town to the highway and Don Bosco slope. The front on (sports space) is situated at the southern end of the park, next to the pedestrian access from the Oarso street bridge, so that releases the largest area of the open space to the north, near the train viaduct and the possible accesses through it to create a space which allows the use of it with temporary uses.
