THE GARDEN in Hanoi, Vietnam by Bureau A

Saturday, October 19th, 2013

Article source: Bureau A

The Garden is an attempt to participate to a new fresh life that’s emerging within the particular space of a factory from the Soviet era in Hanoi. The space, well located at the border of the old French neighbourhood, near the Opera House is an ancient penicillinfactory. Invested mainly by artists, fashion designers and creative people of all kinds, the spaces inside the factory provide a new cultural dynamic to young Hanoi.

ACADEMIA Bridge in Venice, Italy by ///byn

Saturday, October 19th, 2013

Article source: ///byn

Canaletto understood Venice as a timeless place composed from exceptions. Inspired by the artisan tradition of glass, we searched the possibility of creating a transparent glass structure made solid though the geometry of every piece and the union between them. The structural design is based on two concentric skins that linked by circulation elements make a structural arch. The circulation paths modify the geometry of the bridge giving an asymmetrical position on top of the Grand Canal.

EEUU 4263 BUILDING in Buenos Aires, Argentina by BAK arquitectos

Saturday, October 19th, 2013

Exhibited at the XIII Biennale of Architecture in Venice, August 2012

MEMORY

The Place

We had to build an apartment building in a land of 8.66m of width in Boedo, a zone of Buenos Aires that, without loosing the typical characteristics of neighborhood, has been changing its physiognomy because of the urban densification. The particularly of the land in where we have to intervene is that its back yard is adjacent with an urban square, with an important vegetation where is placed a football school and a small square. The views to this green lung match with the best orientation: the North.

The aim was to build a spacious, private residence in the eastern Uckermark in rural Brandenburg from timber construction. Small farm buildings sparsely appear in the open landscape of primarily agricultural land. For this project, we took up the theme of the lone homestead in vast space.

TETRIS HOUSE in Toronto by Reza Aliabadi [rzlbd]


Saturday, October 19th, 2013

Article source: Reza Aliabadi [rzlbd]

We have all played the game “Tetris” at least once in our lives. We were mesmerized by the magic of geometry and rewarded by our efficiency. For rzlbd Tetris is not just a game of block arrangement and fast performance, but it is a quest of effective design. If a designer of space was as structured as Tetris blocks, there would be virtually zero wasted space within a building.

17 m2 in Gothenburg, Sweden by Torsten Ottesjö

Saturday, October 19th, 2013

Article source: Torsten Ottesjö

Walking into this apartment in the heart of Gothenburg is penetrating a very complex and whimsical brain: that of designer Torsten Ottesjö. Borne out of the client’s desire to optimize space, Ottesjö together with Lars Isestig has transformed this apartment into an intricate, multi-leveled nest, comprised of two stairways, a bedroom, a bathroom with shower, a fully-equipped kitchen, an office, a closet, a living room guest bedroom and dining area—all within a mere 17m2 x 3,6m (183 sq ft x 11,8 ft).

I remember you” is an algorithm based architecture for a residence that was designed in collaboration with Norisada Maeda Atelier and Columbia University based design team Proxy.

For this project two kinds of algorithms have been used: one for the major form and another one for the space. In order to automatically determin those two parameters, a programming trial has been developed and set up.

Fairfax Avenue Apartment in Sydney, Australia by Rolf Ockert Design

Saturday, October 19th, 2013

Article source: Rolf Ockert Design

We were approached by a bachelor who had just bought a penthouse apartment in an upmarket suburb of Sydney’s East. The apartment occupied the entire top floor of a 1940’s building and  had great views over Sydney harbour. On the downside it was not very well laid out and the living area was small. The connection of the living area as well as access to the large terrace was also not ideal.
