Eden Bio in Paris, France by Maison Edouard François

Thursday, May 9th, 2013

Article source: Maison Edouard François

Eden Bio was a study of the densification of a typical suburban block on the east side of Paris.

Three ideas guided the project.

The first idea was to respect the surroundings and its history \”à la Doisneau\”. There were pre-existing buildings, full of life and devoid of pretension, some low, others tall. Long and narrow alleyways that are remnant of the area’s agricultural history interrupt the street alignment and spatially define the plot, while vegetation-filled corridors lead the eye into the sun-filled core of the block.

Mustafa Center in Singapore by Geometrica

Wednesday, May 8th, 2013

Article source: Geometrica

Singapore is well known for its multicultural spirit and universal appeal to travelers–and great shopping. Mustafa Center, a multilevel shopping center, offers an intense, 24-hour-a-day shopping experience, with its myriad of interesting shops that attract more than 15,000 customers of many nationalities every weekend. Mustafa Center offers everything from fine fabrics to electronic devices to jewels. Its restaurants, too, offer a wide selection of cuisine. Crowning it all is a Geometrica dome. Geometrica’s glass and stainless steel structure serves as the eye-catching roof for the restaurant on the top floor of the shopping center, where diners can choose from among a host of offerings while they watch the ever-evolving city come alive as the sun goes down. This structure, similar to the Museo del Niño (Children’s Museum) in Puerto Rico and the Hyatt Hotel in Cancun, Mexico, exemplifies the combined beauty of metal and glass, magnifying its surroundings in a collage of colors and shapes.

Bogotá has had a renowned tradition in building high-quality social housing projects. The site, given its privileged location, presented a unique opportunity to once again claim the throne in contemporary social housing developments. Rather than work with a single apartment, we chose to scale up the unit to a group of 16 apartments.
