Sunnyslope Sustainable Office in Phoenix, Arizona by Marlene Imirzian & Associates Architects

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

Article source: Marlene Imirzian & Associates Architects 

Through simple sustainable design, the Sunnyslope Sustainable Office shows the potential to shift the paradigm of ubiquitous small Phoenix commercial lots from asphalt covered parking to a sustainable, urban place.  Combining repurposed, recycled materials with native desert landscaping the modest 1950s building was renovated for the Architect’s office.  At the entrance a courtyard of translucent panels is a welcoming entry and provides usable outdoor space.

MoCA Pavilion in Los Angeles by Tom Wiscombe Design

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

Article source: Tom Wiscombe Design

This inhabitable pavilion is a study of surface-to-volume transformations, where mass is achieved by pushing into a surface like a fist through a rubber sheet. In this case, chunky objects are pushed into exterior skins, creating volumetric effects on the interior. The perimeter edges of the three components of the piece are razor-thin, creating visual tension between the realms of 2D/flat and 3D/massive.
