Exercise with the arches n˚1 in Avetrana (Taranto), Italy by NAUTA architecture & research

Friday, August 23rd, 2013

Article source: NAUTA architecture & research

This two family house presents a traditional local row house scheme, introvert on the street and open on the back garden. The central rooms, living and dining areas, suffered great lack of light, due to their distance from the two facades.

The ground floor rooms presented existing vaulted ceilings, very valuable for their architecture and space effect. This scheme imposed the preservation of the enfilade of vaulted spaces, yet needing a strategy to avoid the box in box effect and extend multiple internal flows and views.

Underneath a rampant of a fortified wall, lie the remnants of the once large complex of fortifications of Ypres, called “Kazematten”.

Built in 1680 by a mythical French Marshal as part of a large fortification project of Ypres, the “Kazematten” are known for their rich history. Following the independence of Belgium the fortification complex was mostly demolished to allow de city to expand.The “Kazematten” were spared this fate due to lack of funds.

CRODA in México D.F. by usoarquitectura

Article source: usoarquitectura

The project for the redesign of Croda offices – an international company specialized in the production of chemical products with natural origins – was an interesting process in which architects Gabriel Salazar and Fernando Castañón were involved with the client to change, not only the space, but the way they work. Important modifications had to be done in the same space to generate a new environment.

House of Kasamatsu in Gifu, Japan by Katsutoshi Sasaki + Associates

Friday, August 23rd, 2013

Article source: Katsutoshi Sasaki + Associates

It may have become fewer these days, but many people still have experiences of eating or relaxing with families beneath a tree, or climbing trees to find their own space to play.

It is just a metaphor, but the desirable place for a family to gather and spend time may be somewhere like beneath a tree, laid-back, with moderate sunshine and comfortable breeze.

A STADIUM TO THE CITY in Belo Horizonte, Brazil by BCMF Arquitetos

Friday, August 23rd, 2013

Article source: BCMF Arquitetos

A STADIUM TO THE CITY

Belo Horizonte. A modernist building in a modernist landscape.

Mineirão Stadium and Pampulha neighborhood were conceived during the 40´s, at the beginning of the structuralist fever that would conduct the economic policies of Brazil during the following decades. Not by coincidence, Pampulha´s mentor was Juscelino Kubitschek, then mayor of the city of Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, who granted commissions to vanguard professionals such as young Oscar Niemeyer and Roberto Burle Marx to capture the essence of his modern envisions. Quite a successful essay for his Brasilia from 1960.
