Museum of Vucedol Culture in Vukovar, Croatia by Radionica arhitekture

Friday, December 6th, 2013

Article source: Radionica arhitekture 

The museum building is a path which the visitors climb to overcome the elevation difference of some twenty meters, from the access road to the plateau on which the Vučedol culture archaeological findings have been discovered. Passing through the museum visitors get all the necessary information about the Vučedol culture, and come to the place of the archaeological sondages aware of importance and meaning of that place. Exhibition areas of the museum are a series of terraces that climb slowly adapting to the topography.

Timber structure archery hall and boxing club in Tokyo, Japan by FT Architects

Friday, December 6th, 2013

Article source: FT Architects

The project consists of two buildings, an archery hall and a boxing club, standing a few hundred meters apart on the grounds of Kogakuin University in west Tokyo.

The formal rituals of Kyudo (Japanese archery) and the very physical nature of boxing may appear worlds apart. However, surprisingly, the two built facilities share a number of commonalities.

Campus WU – Master Plan and Landscaping in Vienna, Austria by BUSarchitektur

Friday, December 6th, 2013

Article source: BUSarchitektur


The Campus is a sequence of intertwining open spaces. Buildings on the different zones qualify these spaces from an architectural point of view. The Master Plan model determined the design of these open areas; a fabric of interior and exterior spaces, defined by the location of the buildings’ entrances in relation to the plazas, brings life to the intended environment.

Giving Warmth to the Building Skin-The World of Gio Ponti, Father of Modern Italian Design in Tokoname, Japan by TORAFU ARCHITECTS

Friday, December 6th, 2013


We designed the space for an exhibition “Giving Warmth to the Building Skin-The World of Gio Ponti, Father of Modern Italian Design” at INAX MUSEUMS in the city of pottery, Tokoname, Aichi prefecture, Even though Ponti is a modernist, he explores architectural surfaces, integrating hand craft work into machine production in order to communicate “feeling of skin,” such as its texture and warmth. Four themes: “Interior wall,” “Window” “Floor” and “Exterior wall” were keys to the interpretation of the exhibition. By making excellence use of co-located Monozukuri Koubou laboratory crafting technique, we have attempted to duplicate Ponti’s tile work.

Residence Rieteiland Oost in Amsterdam, Netherlands by Diederendirrix Architects

Friday, December 6th, 2013

Article source: Diederendirrix Architects

Rieteiland Oost in IJburg is an island in Amsterdam with several detached houses, most of which border onto the IJ at the rear and are closed in at the front by a collective courtyard. This residence opens onto the IJ with a view over the Diemerzeedijk. Maximum use is made of this open view by raising the living area to the bell level and putting the garaging, together with the front entrance and workroom, on the subterranean level.

The Florida’s housing is one of the most representative project in our office.

At the project’s beginnings we saw that one of the most important determinant thing, it was its own situation.

The lot was really close to the A6 highway, a very important road in Madrid, so the constant  noise it was very uncomfortable in spite of the location: a quiet  place with lots of vegetation.

HEALTH SCIENCES FACULTY in Zaragoza, Spain by Taller Básico De Arquitectura

Friday, December 6th, 2013

Article source: Taller Básico De Arquitectura

The new Health Faculty of San Jorge University is located on a campus on the outskirts of Zaragoza city. Although it is a rural campus, the nature in it is scarce. The forest along the campus is the result of a man created operation. The surrounding buildings, the Rectory and Communications Faculty, respond to a contemporaneous architecture that lives besides that nature.
