J-4 House in Lima, Perú by Vertice Arquitectos

Saturday, May 11th, 2013

Article source: Vertice Arquitectos

We were faced with a plot of land shaped as a quarter of a circumference that had a height difference of 5.50 meters on the curved side. This side has a privileged view of the sea. In addition, we were conditioned by the construction regulations which enabled us to build two terraced levels.

Addis Abeba Chamber of Commerce Headquarters in Ethiopia by BC Architects

Saturday, May 11th, 2013

The creation of urban potential – through architecture, and the quest for a glocal architecture

Urbanism, in common perception, comes before architecture: urbanism creates potential by generating conditions to orchestrate the city’s latter architectural objects. Urbanism is a very generous way of thinking, since a lot is left open, whereas architecture is a more selfish discipline, which uses up the potential generated by others. In some rapidly changing cities of the global south though, urbanism doesn’t necessarily happen before architecture: it coincides in time.

Cultural Landscape Path in Virgilio, Italy by Archiplan Studio

Saturday, May 11th, 2013

Article source: Archiplan Studio

The work is defined by a series of lightweight structures that accompany the users of the area placed in the Regional Park of the Mincio in a process of interpretation of historical and cultural environment, capable of enhancing aspects of excellence in the area of the lower course of the river. The proposed involves the construction of a series of installations to define some interpretation centers where the cultural attraction is the figure of the Roman poet Virgil and the integration of his poetry with the river landscape.

Saturday, May 11th, 2013

Article source: Envés Arquitectos

Zentral- und Landesbibliothek. General intentions: The proposal we submitted to the Competition is based in three dualities:

Open / closed:  A library has become one of the few public places that still remaining affordable for citizens, where they are able to:

  1. Enjoy recreational activities (playing, eating, resting, reading…) and professional ones
  2. Shelter from uncomfortable weather conditions

We conceive a library as an open, public, free and comfortable meeting place; summing up, an urban lobby.

The Line a.k.a. Slow City in Wuwei, China by Raffaele Marone with Sergio Izzo

Saturday, May 11th, 2013

Article source: Raffaele Marone with Sergio Izzo

The Great Wall of China… Le Corbusier’s 1931 Algiers Plan Obus…Soria y Mata’s 1862 La Ciudad Lineal… the 5-kilometer-long linear cypress path in Bolgheri…

A never-ending tree path, full of elderly and children, women and men, people on bikes and people walking through a collage of hundreds of different landscapes, races, colors, hairdos and clothes, where the trees change as the geography changes.

Custore Pavilion in Warsaw, Poland by Anna Dobek + Mateusz Wojcicki

Saturday, May 11th, 2013

Article source: Anna Dobek + Mateusz Wojcicki

Custore is an experimental project of exhibition pavilion that explores the areas of parametric architecture, used for the commercial market. In this project we had to deal not only with the aesthetic issues of computer-generated sculptural forms, but also with practical problems associated with the execution of the project inside a commercial building, and – most importantly – with the real clash of artistic forms and commercial market guidelines.

Collider Activity Center in Sophia, Bulgaria by Tom Wiscombe Design

Saturday, May 11th, 2013

Article source: Tom Wiscombe Design

This design aspires to make Walltopia into a 21st brand center as well as a destination for sports and recreation. Our belief is that this cannot be achieved without re-thinking the status of building as a neutral container of active furnishings in favor of building as active and distinct. Successful contemporary brand centers create a new and unexpected world, something that exceeds a collection of wares.

Biokilab Laboratories in Miñano Mayor, Spain by Taller Básico De Arquitectura

Saturday, May 11th, 2013

Article source: Taller Básico De Arquitectura

Two boxes in the air and a structure as architecture: The technology Park of Vitoria colonizes a little bit of nature. The quality of the site and its steepness make us question where to build. Two boxes made from air rise above the slope. The structure become architecture carries on its shoulders these boxes, showing a new plane. This new place is signed by the novelty of the time of this research center.   We investigate new ways of entering new places. Our place appears on a new level, determined by a four-legged and colorful structure. Two hollow boxes of concrete inhabit this new place on the structure. The whole complex in a permanent flight reveals a new gravity.

Haus Wiesenhof in Tirol, Austria by Gogl Architekten

Saturday, May 11th, 2013

Article source: Gogl Architekten

The client requested a getaway – a place of peace and contemplation with a strong relationship to the nature surrounding it. This alpine refuge is a symbiosis of spatial openness and enclosed areas. According to the design specifications, rebuilding or extending the house beyond the existing cubage was not permitted, which entailed a massive limitation for the design. Through the basic ideas of interlocking the inner rooms and the form design of an open and richly varied spatial structure, the architect conceptually compensated for the design restrictions and created a generous living and leisure space.
