Quirijn Park in Tilburg, The Netherlands by Karres en Brands

Wednesday, March 12th, 2014

Article source: Karres en Brands

The Quirijn Park is situated on a narrow strip of land that was once intended for the main traffic access to North Tilburg. The new urban development plan transforms this open area into a living link between the formerly separated neighbourhoods of Quirijnskto and Heikant, and brings about increased housing differentiation within North Tilburg. The emphasis therefore also lies on thee nw connections between the bordering neighbourhoods. The park works like a ‘zip fastene rb’etween both districts.

Article source: DesignAgency

The newest destination in Generator’s expanding portfolio, Generator Venice aims to change Venice’s staid hotel and nightlife scene. The hostel occupies an 1855 Palazzo originally built as a granary warehouse, converted in the 1950s into Venice’s only hostel. On the waterfront of the quiet, residential island of Giudecca, Generator is a one-stop vaporetto (water bus) ride from Venice’s main hub of San Marco’s Square. Each of the modern rooms – from the private suites to the dormitories – have panoramic views of neighbouring gardens, across to the Lido, the Grand Canal, or to San Marco and the Doges Palace.

The renewal project is situated right in the centre of the city.

ILUSTRARTE 14, Biennial International Exhibition of Children’s Books Illustration in Lisbon, Portugal by Pedro Cabrito + Isabel Diniz architects

Wednesday, March 12th, 2014

Article source: Pedro Cabrito + Isabel Diniz architects


For this Ilustrarte 14, we have crossed illustration for children with the playful and creative dimension of the act of playing, in a solution that explores the formal features of the famous colorful toy blocks, timeless in its simplicity and potential for discovery.
It is noteworthy that the first concept model has been literally assembled using a set of blocks bought at a toy store.

These objects remain recognizable and communicative, extracted from the everyday iconography, transforming banal into an exercise that brings us closer to the creative process of illustrating.

Air Force Villages by Perkins Eastman

Wednesday, March 12th, 2014

Article source: Perkins Eastman

A home to call one’s own – a private bedroom and bath, ample shared living space, and a front door where family and friends can be greeted. These are the principles that guided Air Force Villages in the search for their model of culture change and initiated a repositioning of its two self-contained campuses—one campus offering a more urban lifestyle and the other a more rural one. Their vision called for a strong physical connection between each home that would allow for efficient staff and service delivery as well as building a stronger sense of community.
