Not far from the Viennese boarder – in between the Wien River and the Wiener Street as well as in close proximity to Josef Hoffmann’s well-known sanatorium dating from 1905 – lies the Wienerwald surgery. The three-story high solid building accommodates three apartments in the top floor, which are illuminated by means of cut in terraces.
The project calls for an intervention of the existing sport ground in a public school of Beijing. We define the project as a 1/2 stadium because the scale, size, formal expression and use of the architecture stand in between an official stadium and a blank sport field.
The new headquarters of the Catalan Institute of Economists of Barcelona occupies a narrow site with380 m²(1,247 ft²) of surface area and32 meters(105 ft.) of street frontage at the far end of the Plaza Gal·laPlacídiaadjacent to Via Augusta.

The hut is located in back corner of a residential garden, nestled in a mature landscape. For the designer-owner-builder, the experience of its creation was a retreat both from work and into work – the hands-on construction process in itself was cathartic.
The memorial honors the 987,000 men and women from the State of Illinois who served this country during World War II. This new memorial was planned for an irregular site shaped by the formal dictates of two previously built memorials – the Illinois Vietnam Veterans Memorial (1988) and the Illinois Korean War Memorial (1996).
A place where the landscape dominates and terraces form the terrain, mountain and farm land consolidation merge with the idea of this intervention. A modern architecture where white prevails along with granite, a drawing of simple shapes where readings were not forgotten the traditional architecture of the area. A silhouette marked by coverage throughout the run of the house as an electrocardiogram if it is, they form a record of changes and sensations generated by the various spaces inside expiring on glimpse of a landscape where time to along with our look.
Every project has a connotation that makes it different, unique and unrepeatable. The Wind House has two unusual features, the first one is that it is in a suburb that has not been built yet, having no neighbors whatsoever, and it faces the stunning Primavera Woods. The other one is it’s calling to be a house where kids will grow, the youngest a newborn and the eldest only four years old. And this is doubtlessly the real job, to create the scenery where this kid’s childhood will take place, and therefore several aspects are handled differently.

The new Museum of Wisconsin Art (MOWA) in West Bend, Wisconsin, designed by Jim Shields, FAIA, Project Lead Designer at HGA Architects and Engineers (HGA), achieves a subtle balance between architecture as art and architecture as a neutral setting for art. The crisp, triangular geometry of the 31,000-square-foot, two-level museum moves from a glass-enclosed entrance at the southwest corner to a wedge-resolving point at the opposite end, where a glass curtain wall reveals an interior stairwell. Clad in custom, horizontal, modular fiber-cement panels in three shades of white, the surface of the building projects a soft and gentle variegation of color.
