Eco Vall in Castellón, Spain by Juan Marco Marco

Saturday, March 30th, 2013

Article source: Juan Marco Marco

On the basis of a Prototype designed for a competition, we have given shape to this installation in a concrete territory:
an installation in the landscape. Ecoparks being centres of collective collection of domestic waste (excepting the organic kind,
for which normalised channels of elimination already exist), we consider it essential to introduce in the project the communications variable, or at least to generate its possibility.

Artist’s Society and High end Residential Flats in Shoreditch, London by Simone de Gale Architects

Saturday, March 30th, 2013

Article source: Simone de Gale Architects

The project provided an excellent design solution for re-modelling a largely dilapidated Victorian building located in Shoreditch by converting the residential dwelling into high end residential flats and to extend at the rear and provide a local artists society for artists and curators within the vicinity. The design for the extension included a contrasting contemporary glazed roof detailing with strong horizontal lines cutting into the verticality of the strong classical Victorian facade.

The Twist in Tokyo, Japan by MenoMenoPiu Architects & FHF Architectes

Saturday, March 30th, 2013

Article source: MenoMenoPiu Architects & FHF Architectes

A district town: Which must be an excellence tool for the public and for all its participants. Its architecture connects gardens, squares, covered pedestrian streets, gathering spaces and induce new urban compartments. Designed as a city fragment, not only as a sport equipment, our stadium is an attractor: innovative and generator of vitality. It is expanding in order to better reach users requirements: proximity, diversity, accessibility. It became a district, naturally sustainable and ecological.

Our stadium concept, unlike other conventional stadiums, is an elliptical spiral which is gradually unrolling and forming the built space with a slope of 2%, serving the 80 000 places (with a visibility angle that grows from 20% in the bottom part to 45% at the top part of the gardens). This disposition aims to offer to the public a perfect visibility from all the gardens. The slope also facilitates the access in the building for people with motor deficiencies.

The simple cube is being “sculptured” according to the needs of the entrance and the integration into the context – one city spot of extraordinary beauty. The client is the “Austrian motorway provider” and is keen to realize one of Europe’s most ecological and low energy buildings: 18kw/m2/year maintaining a very high “atmospheric & climate standard”.

Hawthbush in Sussex Downs, England by Mole Architects

Saturday, March 30th, 2013

Article source: Mole Architects

Mole won planning permission to refurbish and extend this 17th century farmhouse in open countryside within the High Wield area of the Sussex Downs. The scheme replaced several ‘70s additions of little architectural merit with a single barrel-vaulted extension. The extension and alterations are designed to allow greater prominence to the original farmhouse which is modernised internally, making the building function better as a family home. Attached while visually separate, the extension contains a generous south facing family kitchen with an open aspect on the ground floor; a new master bedroom enjoys the vault above.

They chose to draw on specific inspirations such as Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Pavilion, Le Corbusier’s Ronchamps, and Marcel Breuer’s Wassily Chair.

Footbridge Over the Railways in Villetaneuse, France

Saturday, March 30th, 2013

Article source: DVVD

The long-awaited Villetaneuse Université interchange is now taking shape. Although this is a good thing in terms of urban development, it also exacerbates the division between north and south due to the ensuing concentration of networks and traffic lanes. Consequently, the footbridge serves a twofold role: access to the station and a link between neighbourhoods. It needs to play its part in the interchange at the same time as fulfilling its role as an urban connection between North and South, improving traffic flow. As an urban landmark, it must also create clarity for the town’s flagship spaces and buildings: the Town Hall, University, sailing centre, interchange, and so on.
