NIARA in Valladolid, Spain by Amas4arquitectura

Saturday, March 9th, 2013

Article source: Amas4arquitectura

The Niara Sports Club needed a place of its own for its activities. After finding a suitable site in an easily accessible, outlying residential area with a low population density, the Schola Foundation decided to concentrate a large number of its activities into a single building, thus fulfilling a number of complex requirements that included an educational and recreational area for children at two different stages of development- “small” and “big” children; a separate area for parents’ meetings and activities, an area for offices, a residential area, and a block of independent services. All of the above were laid out around the chapel which, together with the sports complex, is the nucleus of the centre.

Glen Lake Tower in Michigan by Balance Associates, Architects

Saturday, March 9th, 2013

Article source: Balance Associates, Architects

High on a wooded hilltop above a lake in Michigan, the Tower House is the result of an inspiring collaboration between Balance Associates, clients with a passion for architecture as well as their site, and a skilled local contractor. Directed to create “a sustainable retreat that reflects the timeless beauty and simple comforts of the area,” the architects responded by raising the primary living space above the dense surrounding woods in order to gain light, air and views of Glen Lake and Lake Michigan beyond.

Toge in Tokyo, Japan by Emmanuelle Moureaux Architecture + Design

Saturday, March 9th, 2013

Article source: Emmanuelle Moureaux Architecture + Design

Toge (Japanese for thorn) is a modular product. Each “thorn” gives the viewer the impression of a sharp and stiff object, but these modules can in fact be freely combined to create a soft, pliable and standalone space. At DESIGNTIDE TOKYO 2011, Emmanuelle arranged five hundred of these Toge modules in 15 different colors to form a wedding dress. This conceptual piece was an exercise in contradictory impressions and sensations – solid and stiff but soft and pliable, menacing yet gentle.
