Airbaltic Passenger Terminal in Riga, Latvia by MSB Arquitectos + ahad Arquitectos

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

Article source: MSB Arquitectos + ahad Arquitectos

This work opens our participation with ahead – architects, based in London, a studio which we now have a partnership. Our scheme sets the terminal building in the middle of the two piers, demonstrating a strong connection with both of them. The continuous language of form, materials and expression shape both interior and exterior of the terminal. Further-more, the proposed design is intended to be read as one object; one entity where both piers play an inner complicity.

Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group, Lansdowne Park in Canada by Cannon Design

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

Article source: Cannon Design

Lansdowne Park is an historic sports, exhibition and entertainment facility in Ottawa’s urban center. An integral part of the city’s history, it features the aging 24,000-seat Frank Clair Stadium and other entertainment venues. The City of Ottawa embarked upon a major redevelopment, renovating the stadium and the heritage buildings on the site and adding 300,000 sf of new retail space. The renovated stadium can expand to 45,000 seats, enabling it to host national and international events. The stadium’s porous, accessible design encourages the intersection of people and built form.

108 VPO Dwellings in Borinbizkara, Spain by Patxi Cortazar Arquitecto

Saturday, April 13th, 2013

Article source: Patxi Cortazar Arquitecto

The project is the winning entry of a Victoria-Gasteiz town hall competition. The volume proposed by the competition is modified in order to obtain a better orientation of the project in a more prismatic, rectangular form. A north-south orientation allows for the buildings to be more separated, increasing the amount of sunlight that reaches the interior facades. The buildings are designed as differentiated, black and white volumes joined by small boxes that contain the vertical cores. These are also shaped as black prisms.

The Architecture of the Dragonfly Wing in London, UK by Maria Mingallon

Saturday, April 13th, 2013

Article source: Maria Mingallon

An optimal natural construction, built by a complex patterning process, developed through evolution as a response to force flows and material organization.

Being the dragonfly wing a highly dynamic structure, vibration studies were necessary to obtain realistic deformation patterns and thus, understand its structural behaviour. Ten vibration modes were extracted from the modal analysis performed in GSA. Our eyes have difficulties distinguishing the third, fourth and fifth vibration modes (which occur almost simultaneously), due to the high frequencies exhibited. In our case, slow motion pictures featuring the real flight of the dragonfly, allowed us to identify up to the third mode of vibration by comparison with that calculated in the analysis.

Tire Apt. student housing project in Istanbul, Turkey by Esin Yürekli

Friday, April 12th, 2013

Article source: Esin Yürekli

This project is designed and built as a housing project for students attending the two nearby universities. The apartment building contains app. 37 one-bedroom units that can comfortably accommodate up to two people. The plot faces a small state owned forest. Circulation areas inside apartment buildings are generally closed, dark spaces and therefore utilized at a minimal level. However, these areas play a critical role in the building’s relationship with its environment, in the formation of the social structure within the building, and in the life cycle of the inhabitants.

Interior office in Moscow, Russia by PlanAR Architecture Studio

Friday, April 12th, 2013

Article source: PlanAR Architecture Studio

The premises were originally designed to house a Soviet-time supercomputer. Rooms were separated from the corridor by the unused air supply shafts. The raised floor (strong enough to bear the supercomputer) was 1.5m above the concrete slab and 1.5 below the entrance level. We decided to take away the shafts along with the raised floor of the corridor. Instead, two new levels were made.
