Woodlands Community Garden Shed in Vancouver, Canada by BRENDAN CALLANDER

Saturday, February 15th, 2014

Article source: BRENDAN CALLANDER

This garden shed was designed and constructed in partnership between UBC architecture students and the Woodlands Community Garden Club. This structure is the focal point of the garden.

It acts as a gathering spot for local education programs and provides a practical storage solution. The unique form of the shed was designed to prevent shadows from being cast on surrounding garden plots while at the same time shading the central meeting space.

Teacher Training Center in Granada, Spain by Ramón Fernández-Alonso y Asociados

Saturday, February 15th, 2014

Article source:  Ramón Fernández-Alonso y Asociados

The initial idea is to provide a closer architecture, almost family, in the composition of spaces as well as in the treatment of light and texture that provides the ceramic skin. The materiality of this building is linked from the beginning to the argument of the project process. Ground floor is projected as a threshold space compressed by the building itself in its upper floors.
