Fragment à miracle’ project proposes the construction of an architectural landscape on old foundations, a simultaneous source of wonder and contemplation. The project is related to the context of the landscape’s coastline because of its differentiated permeability and its connection with the environment’s point of strength. Walks, south and north, are connected to the Old Street of Italy which, abandoning its original mission, becomes a witness of Veytaux Villeneuve pedestrian link.

Eggum Tourist Route in Norway by Snohetta

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013

Article source: Snohetta

Eggum is a community which lies on the seaward side of Vestvågøy in Lofoten. The former fishing village faces directly out to sea, on a small, level strip of land between steep cliffs and the sea. There are not many fishermen left at Eggum, but a good many people still live there. During the summer season Eggum is a very popular place to come to see the midnight sun. Apart from North Cape, Eggum is claimed to be the best place for such observations. The tourists gather in the area round Kvalhausen, which lies a little way past Eggum itself. Kvalhausen is a hill which was used as a radar station by the occupying German forces during the second world war. The foundation wall around the old radar station still stands. ”The Fort” as the locals call it, is a local landmark.

A Gateway to Petra in Wadi Musa, Jordan by Maisam Architects And Engineers

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013

Article source: Maisam Architects And Engineers

The city of Petra, one of the seven wonders of the word, is the foremost historical and archeological city in the region, carved out of the red-rose rocks, as the capital of the Nabataeans. ‘Wadi Musa’ town situated at the entrance of the old city has unfortunately gone through periods of terrible urbanism and witnessed uncontrolled development sprawl for years. Within this context the brief was to design a gate that streamlines the movement of visitors in and out of Petra.The challenge was in designing at a location that is chaotic in its setting; due to the lack of planning, The haphazardly placed kiosks and the scattered buildings which consist of a hotel, a visitor’s center and a proposed museum, components that are rich however, not connected visually nor physically on site, All positioned Next to a neglected Wadi (valley) that lost its character.
