Unquera Parish Center – Church of the Holy Martyrs in Cantabria, Spain by Fernandez-Abascal y Muruzabal + Ortiz y Barrientos

Sunday, May 12th, 2013

Article source: Fernandez-Abascal y Muruzabal + Ortiz y Barrientos

The center, located in the extension of Unquera, is aligned to a road in the base of the mountain which characterizes and darkens the plot. We projected and elementary volume slightly elevated from the land, like a palafito. Its abstraction and scale facilitate its implantation as primary element in the heterogenous and little qualified urban fabric. Its distance against the ground level avoids the damages caused by the swellings of the Deva river.

The National Library in Jerusalem, Israel by Baer, Shifman-Nathan Architects

Sunday, May 12th, 2013

Article source: Baer, Shifman-Nathan Architects

The new Master Plan for the Ben-Gurion Campus 101-0661176, clearly marks a conceptual shift which is intended to gradually transform Rupin Road into the main axis of the Government Compound of Giv’at Ram. This new vision radically transforms the approach of scattering architectural landmark buildings within a large urban “park”, so as to create a vibrant urban fabric.

Embedded Interferences in Pordenone, Italy by Disguincio&co

Sunday, May 12th, 2013

Article source: Disguincio&co

E.I. is the new facade of a series of warehouses dated back to the ’80s, situated at the east gate of Pordenone. The expansion is designed to accommodate new offices and give a unified appearance to the complex, currently fragmented both in terms of color and shape. The particular geometry solves organically these dissonant moments: tectonic components (pillars, beams, etc..) and programmatic exigencies (openings, entrances, etc..) have been integrated into a single body, in fact, the mass of the building is stretched to generate ground supports and tears to open the interior to natural light.
