Las Negras Waterfront in Nijar, España by Jesús Torres García

Tuesday, October 7th, 2014

Article source: Jesús Torres García

The landscape of this Almeria area has been used as scenery for forty years: from the birth of a genre such as the Spaghetti Western with Sergio Leone taking the lead with The Good, the Bad and the Ugly and A Fistful of Dollars, to modest productions such as How I won the war by Richard Lester. The fact that such an abundance of artists agrees in the choice of this enclave as a backdrop for their creations gives us an idea of its scenic quality. The isolation and the lack of development of this region have also helped.

The NON PROGRAM PAVILION in Salobreña, Spain by Jesus Torres Garcia Architectes

Tuesday, October 7th, 2014

Article source: Jesus Torres Garcia Architectes Located in the South of Spain, close to the Mediterranean Sea, this small pavilion is surrounded by a remarkable landscape. The construction is defined by the relation between the form in the landscape and the contact of the structure on the field. The structure developed itself as a flower, as a natural fact, subscribing to Oscar Niemeyer’s approach. The whole project has been composed in the concept of “how to build in natural landscape?” and “what is the appropriate “weight” of a construction of this scale?” The non-program pavilion reaches the idea of disappearing in the landscape, attempting to erase the division between the intervention and the area. This concern of integration reaches the point where the landscape generates the architecture itself.

Quality Hotel Friends in Solna, Sweden by Karolina Keyzer + Wingårdhs

Tuesday, October 7th, 2014

Article source: Karolina Keyzer + Wingårdhs

The house with thousand eyes creates an illusion; like waves from a point in middle of the northern facade. The image appears from a distance. It makes the stiff block soft, even wet. The impression is formed by windows in three different sizes: 1.4, 1.7 and 2 meters in diameter. The variations furnish the standardized rooms with a kind of individuality, especially in corners.
