Article source: Miró Rivera Architects

The Lady Bird Lake Hike and Bike Trail is a linear park of scenic trails and landscaping that follows the banks of the Colorado River in downtown Austin. Very popular among runners and bike riders, the park provides residents and visitors with a rural escape in an urban setting. The Restroom—the first public restroom built in the park in over 30 years—was built by the Town Lake Trail Foundation, a community-based non-profit organization, in partnership with the city’s Parks and Recreation Department.

FUNES in Funabashi, Chiba, Japan by N MAEDA ATELIER

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013

Article source: N MAEDA ATELIER

FUNES intentionally overturns the conventional Japanese housing program of “pluming to the rear”. Whoever decided that the living room and bedroom are served space and the bath and kitchen are servant space? FUNES eradicates the warped lifestyle program controlled by this dry functionality, and flattens out the lifestyle air, to create an enriched lifestyle atmosphere full of discoveries from the reverse.

I-house in Sasebo, Japan by Architect Show Co.,Ltd

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013

Article source: Architect Show Co.,Ltd

The building site is a long, narrow piece of land between a coastline road and a cliff. The key design concept, besides assuring a sufficient living space, was to harmonize with the surrounding natural environment.

The land sits two meters below the roadside, and the natural slope of the land was daringly used without trying to restructure it. The building has a beautifully aesthetic form that makes it appear to be floating in the air. The north side facing the road is flat and simple. When approaching the house in a car, the white form of the west side of the building gradually gets larger, and reflects the sunlight.

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

Article source: BESONIAS ALMEIDA arquitectos.

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


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.
