An Orifice Taking a Breath of Fresh Air in by Simone de Gale Architects

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013

Article source: Simone de Gale Architects

This project utilized the fragmentation of a community to rebuild ties through a social cohesion of colour, light and space. An event took place for one day with colourful fabric draped from the windows of the residential maisonettes above ground floor down to the ground floor units, dynamically and aesthetically changing the space with community engagement. The installation illustrated the effect architecture can have in place.

Unravelling Geometry in London by Simone de Gale Architects

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013

Article source: Simone de Gale Architects

This project demonstrated the transition of space over a period of 30 years within the area of London Fields to Liverpool Street from a disused rough and un-inhabitable area into a well defined architectural establishment.

Fine plaster formed a conceptual arch representing the adhoc and then planned architectural proposals; an unwound timber section represented time. Entwining the two brought the concept together.

Article source: WHIM Architecture

Villa Al is a green villa in a green environment. This proposal emphasises the existing qualities and character of the location.
A meandering river through a green environment is translated into a meandering route through a green pavilion.

In a natural context also the electricity and heating are found in natural resources. A heat pump installation allows for heating from the soil. Electricity is captured by solar panels and from the water motion in the river.

BUTE Sport Center in Budapest, Hungary by Hetedik Műterem Ltd.

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013

Article source: Hetedik Műterem Ltd.

With the partial remake of the „ÉL” Budapest University of Technology and Economics’ laboratory building, a new, functionally complex Sports Center was created.

The „ÉL” building was built in the immediate vicinity of the „Z” tower building by the Danube riverbank (also designed by Elemér Nagy) in the mid 70’s. This remake was realized on an approx. 2800 m2’s (ground+2 floors) of area, built up of three crane bays with spans of 15 meters, and the surrounding reinforced concrete frame structure. The sporting facilities were created on the 2/3 of the office and laboratory tracts of the extant building’s first and second floor. This impoundment was entirely renovated according to the new function, whilst the remaining area continues to operate with its laboratory and educational functions.

CB30 in Mexico City, Mexico by Dellekamp Arquitectos

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013

Article source: Dellekamp Arquitectos

This building has 3 apartments looking unto the street as well as a 2 stories house in the back that lives to an interior patio. Due to the different needs of each client, the apartments have different floor plans. However the public areas concentrate in the front allowing it to become one single space, creating continuity with the exterior. There is a spectacular tree in front of the building, which became an object of design for the interior, as well as for the façade. By working with structural geometry, we managed to support the 15mt span with no columns that would obstruct the view to the exterior; we then sharpened the floor slabs and walls to the minimum, disappearing their edges in the façade.

The abstract idea to represent the spirit of Taiwan was settled into the representation that creates a new image to match and balance with the existing Taipei 101.

Public space regeneration through the “Pedibus” micro-projects in the Oltrarno quarter, Florence

The Oltrarno is a historic district south of the River Arno in Florence with a number of intrinsic characteristics that makes it one of the most problematic areas of the city.

The morphological situation is complex and varied: the historic city center is protected by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site while the pedestrian areas must coexist with congested traffic roads. Moreover the dynamic participation of local citizens in spontaneous committees and the richness of social life (locals, immigrants, tourists) envision the possibility to test here a pioneering project for the regeneration and re-appropriation of public space.
