Kocka bar in Budapest, Hungary by MINUSPLUS

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

Article source: MINUSPLUS

The Kocka bar is located in the heart of the entertainment district of Budapest, in the busy junction of a pedestrian walkway and the bar-street of Kazinczy utca. Its freestanding situation is unique in the surrounding, and the monolithic cubic volume (kocka translates to cube in Hungarian) is an easily recognizable landmark. It has a huge potential to become an iconic building of the entertainment district.

West Los Angeles Office Building in California by GMPA Architects

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

Article source: GMPA Architects

Located at a busy, pivoting point intersection where retail, commercial and residential properties merge, the design direction for this proposed office building emphasizes a connection to its neighbors—both the businesses and the residential communities—with the goal of integrating these adjacencies visually and figuratively to enhance the urban community. The concept strives to encourage pedestrian activity and communication. A predominance of translucent glass allows natural light inside while providing views to outdoor street-level activity and adding a sense of vibrancy to the community. A connection also exists between the curved front of the building and a new green public park that will face that portion of the structure.

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

Article source: SUSTAINABLE.TO + ERA Architects

The Sky-o-swale is a shade-water structure that filters rainwater through a green roof, into an underground cistern. The water is used to irrigate the Community Garden. More than that, the Sky-o-swale is a shaded community gathering space—a stage for performances and seating for the Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment (MLSE) /Jumpstart sports pad. It’s a wondrous structure, with a truly amazing history.

Al Hilal Bank Tower in Maryah Island, Abu Dhabi by Goettsch Partners

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

Article source: Goettsch Partners

The Al Hilal Bank Tower project was an exceptional design opportunity on a highly visible and distinguished site on Al Maryah Island in Abu Dhabi. Goettsch Partners developed a design solution that offered a unique form derived from a combination of site and contextual influences. The building varies in its massing and aesthetic in order to provide a unique and distinguished building for the site. The building derives its massing from a push and pull effect at the outer corners to achieve a unique form. The building’s skin changes at the “void” locations to accentuate the shifting aesthetic. The tower itself is a value driven class A office building composed of efficient lease spans and column free interior floor plates. The Al Hilal Bank Tower incorporates a distinguished design that will set the standard for the island.

Hong Kong Ferry Terminal in China by Michael Arellanes II (MA2)

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

Article source: Michael Arellanes II (MA2)

In continuation of the study of vector based geometries, the Hong Kong Ferry Terminalis a proposal that demonstrates the aesthetics of vector curvatures and natural parameterization. The formulation of forces and arcs give rise to multiplicity in Euclidean geometry around a given set of parameters. Due to the magnitude and direction of layered line segments, the connecting lines generate varied degrees of arcing paths and surfaces, from simple to the complex. The increase in variables may restrict or give rise to excessive deformation in reasoned geometric expression. The intention behind the ferry terminal is to focus the current modes of curved vector tectonics and apply its discourse into the synthesis ofthe body or shell of the building.
