Santuario de Meritxell in Canillo, Andorra by Ricardo Bofill Taller de Arquitectura

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

Article source: Ricardo Bofill Taller de Arquitectura

The old chapel of the Virgin of Meritxell, patron saint of the Principality of Andorra, was gutted by fire during celebrations in 1972. The Taller de Arquitectura was commissioned to rebuild the sanctuary, but steered away from the kind of archaeological approach that would have been limited to replacing the fallen stones in their original positions.

Hudson Hill Condominium in New York City by FXFOWLE Architects

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

Article source: FXFOWLE Architects

Hudson Hill Condominium designed by FXFOWLE (2009) is located just west of Columbus Circle in the Clinton Hill District in New York City. The infill building’s Trespa-paneled façade, spanning 125 feet, is designed to actuate the street wall and bring character to the residential units. Designed to appear more opaque from the east, the faceted façade harmonizes with the adjacent rows of townhouses and small apartment buildings. The façade opens to the west so many of the two and three bedroom apartments capture views of a park at the corner of Tenth Avenue and the Hudson River beyond.

Colegio San Francisco Javier in Puerto Montt, Chile by Martín Hurtado Arquitectos Asociados

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

Article source: Martín Hurtado Arquitectos Asociados

The San Francisco Javier School is an institution related to the Compañía de Jesus, which founded this school around 1850, in the center of the emerging city of Puerto Montt. It was in fact the first church and parish, and part of its facilities are now a National Monument. The development and densification of the center, and the transfer of its inhabitants to residential areas in new neighborhoods on the outskirts of the city, forced the relocation of the school. This new building is located in the heart of high Pelluhue, a new residential district located east of the city.

Miami Beach Convention Center in florida by OMA

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

Article source: OMA

Typically, as convention centers evolve their footprints expand. In Miami Beach—an island where every acre is precious and the only “periphery” is ocean—the convention center has claimed an entire precinct for asphalt. Since its initial construction in the 1950’s, the Miami Beach Convention Center has expanded twice, each time claiming more open space from the city and looming closer to its neighbors.

Sungui Arena Park Soccer Stadium in Incheon, South Korea by Rossetti Architects

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

Article source: Rossetti Architects

This project is part of a 22-acre urban renewal plan, connecting an Asian city with its major sea port. Its goal is to revitalize a depressed area by catalyzing growth powered by a new soccer stadium and mixed-use development. The design team carefully integrated the stadium’s site and program to respond to its urban context. An existing multi-modal transit station became a critical anchor in the northwest corner.

Parking de la Croix de Bourgogne in France by Jean-Marie GREMILLET Architecte

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

Article source: Jean-Marie GREMILLET Architecte

Parking lot. 308 places. For a better reading, signalling systems are differentiated, black and white for vehicles, color for the pedestrians. The complex volumes of the parking lot, uniformly painted in white, make profitable the light and make more present the information addressing the users, in the form of easily locatable spots of colour. Blocks sheltering the vertical traffic(circulations) are bathed by an artificial light in the same nuances, red, orange, yellow orange as those used for the pedestrians.

Gosta Museum of Fine Art extension in Mantta, Finland by gianluca milesi architecture

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

Article source: gianluca milesi architecture

TheGostaMuseumis placed in a very particular location, merged in an extremely fascinating natural environment. Starting from this character of the existing museum building and the future extension, we thought to design a building that could be at the same time respectful of nature and could be merged itself in the particular environment. We thought at the building as a built media connecting the works of art and the visitors to the panorama and the beauty of nature.

House M in Yamaguchi-pref, Japan by Keiko Maita Architect Office

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

Article source: Keiko Maita Architect Office

House ‘M’ is located in a rural area surrounded by mountains in Yamaguchi-Prefecture, Japan. The clients, a couple who used to work long hours in the busy city, wanted a quiet house in the nature in relation to the rhythm of the sun.

This small house (100m2) was designed so that the clients would be able to wake up every morning and enjoy the soft light of the rising sun. The exterior walls of the house are made of a semi translucent tent material which allows the sun to penetrate softly inside the house.
