House at Kawachi-Matsubara in Osaka, Japan by Fujiwaramuro Architects

Wednesday, May 1st, 2013

Article source: Fujiwaramuro Architects

A residence standing on a narrow corner lot in the southern part of Osaka. The client wished for a music room for his wife, who teaches gospel music, and a place where many friends could gather.  Due to strict regulations because of the narrow width of the road, the site area was limited to 47 m2 but we tried to adjust the form as much as possible in configuring the interior.

Comandante Ferraz Antartic Station in Península Keller, Antarctica by Estudio 41

Wednesday, May 1st, 2013

Article source: Estudio 41

In certain places around the world nature sometimes creates adverse conditions for the human body. In these places, thinking a building is almost like building a garment, an artifact that protects and comforts. It is a problem of technological performance, but must be combined with aesthetics. Achieving the human well being is more than working notions of comfort and security; it’s also working spaces in their perceptual and symbolic dimensions. A shelter, a safe place. The new home of Brazil in Antarctica. A place of protection and meeting of people for the production of scientific knowledge.That’s how is faced the task of designing the new Comandante Ferraz Antarctic Station.The void left by fire in 2012 loads of symbolism the importance of this new building, it represents the Brazilian presence in Antarctica as a possibility of scientific contribution along with the international community. It also represents an opportunity for technological development for Brazilian architecture and the domestic industry.

Reviving the Vision

One hundred fifty years ago, Khedive Ismail imagined a progressive urban scheme for Cairo that brought the city to the forefront of the world. This projects attempts to revive his vision in a current way. It brings back the once exciting landscape of Azbakia Garden, including a lake, artificial hills, thousands of lights, and spaces for musical performances. A spectacular Opera House and a range of artistic spaces offer the city cultural delights. New transportation structures, underground parking, a tramway, and pleasant pedestrian spaces allow for convenient and efficient access. Finally, contemporary architecture and high-rises lend an image to the area that rivals with any world-class city.

Freedom Room by Comodo and Cibic Workshop

Wednesday, May 1st, 2013

Article source: Comodo and Cibic Workshop

A brand new hospitality concept. A low cost, essential housing module, made and conceived in jail with inmates. A proposal, a product, an exhibition featuring an idea for temporary and social housing, spread hotels, hostels. Can design be a mean for social innovation? Can it provide answers to new emerging needs? In other words, can it be a freedom tool? 

Freedom room is a project developed by Aldo Cibic, Tommaso Corà, Marco Tortoioli Ricci in collaboration with one of the Italian High Security Prisons, Spoleto’s correctional facility. Comodo – a cooperative- has started since 2003 its education activities in that prison, dedicated to inmates’ professional training in design, grapichs and publishing.

Forrec Wins Three Awards of Excellence in Architecture in Perspective 28

Wednesday, May 1st, 2013

Forrec is proud to announce that three members of its team received Awards of Excellence in the 28th annual Architecture in Perspective competition, held by the American Society of Architectural Illustrators, in Oakland California on February 23. The official announcement has just been released.

The winning entries were created by members of three Forrec Studios:

Steve Thorington, Creative Studio: This digital aeria Iillustration of Thanh Xuan Park in Hanoi, Vietnam, shows the three-storey sunken courtyard, whose central pool is connected to the lake on the left, by a cascading watercourse. The bright sunlight and the rich greens, blues and earth tones create a clear sense of the excitement of the scheme and humid subtropical warmth of this thousand-year-old city.

Jan Jurgensen, Landscape Studio: This self-commissioned ink and pencil crayon drawing gives an enigmatic eye-level impression of what Toronto’s University Avenue might feel like with a central median of birch trees in place of the scattered garden that currently exists.

Danny Drapiza, Architectural Studio: The Power long City Plaza (Xiamen, China) sectional elevation has been delineated and textured using an old-fashioned draughting pen. The appeal of the drawing lies as much in the intricate hand-rendered textures as in the exotic architecture and dramatic landscape that is being portrayed. Many of Forrec’s clients appreciate the ability of pen-and-ink drawings to convey the tactile qualities of a proposed environment.

The American Society of Architectural Illustrators (ASAI) is an international non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement and recognition of the art, science and profession of architectural illustration. The Architecture in Perspective competition and exhibition – open to submissions from professional illustrators, architects and designers from around the world – has one major objective: to recognize and disseminate excellence in the art of architectural illustration.

House in Yoro, Gifu, Japan by Airhouse Design Office

Wednesday, May 1st, 2013

Article source: Airhouse Design Office

One of our client’s major requirements was for a living space where the presence of the family would always be felt. In response, we devised a single-roomed layout without columns that took advantage of the distinctive features of the existing warehouse. A large kitchen was installed to cater to the needs of the food-loving husband-and-wife couple. We then conceived the entire living space by taking the kitchen as a focal point, with a mix of various other activities and functions unfolding around it.
