ImaI in Okazaki, Aichi, Japan by Katsutoshi Sasaki + Associates

Thursday, March 27th, 2014

Article source: Katsutoshi Sasaki + Associates

A house built on a narrow strip of land of 3m wide and 21m long. For this ground that looks too long and tight, we adopted a way to construct a house by reinterpreting scale, natural light, and the use of each room instead of setting one concept to design it. We made 5 specific proposals.

The transformation aims to create a luxurious loft style working environment by replacing everything but the primary concrete structure of the building with glass and stainless steel infill, exposing the building’s infrastructure. Completion is scheduled for September 2015.

2226 by be baumschlager eberle

Thursday, March 27th, 2014

Article source: be baumschlager eberle


Two considerations formed the basis of our work. First, how can we maintain in the next thirty to forty years our quality of life and thereby conserve resources? The second, followed by the fundamental belief that we need to develop a home that reverses old fashioned mindsets: man no longer reacts to the house but the house to the man .For this we need much less equipment than is generally assumed. We have in 2226 no technical cooling, no heating, no additional ventilation but rather an intelligent software that controls heat output and natural air supply.

Multiple-generation house in Eichgraben, Austria by franz zt gmbh

Thursday, March 27th, 2014

Article source: franz zt gmbh

After the birth of their first daughter, the young family were taken by the idea of a single-family house in the  countryside. in the wienerwald they found a little house in need of rehabilitation with a large garden. prospective  possibilities of enlargement were already investigated before buying the property.the lean budget required a high  portion of own capital in order to take the first steps in renovating the old building and undertake thermal  sanitation.upon completion of sanitation, the second child had already been born, and thoughts regarding an  annexe became more concrete. also, the grandmother’s wish for a granny flat should be taken into consideration.  building regulations left little leeway regarding building density and height. in order to accommodate the entire  spatial programme, developing a two-storey structure was mandatory.

INTERGENERATIONAL RESIDENCE in Rennes, France by a/LTA architectes

Thursday, March 27th, 2014

Article source: a/LTA architectes

This \” city fragment \” is conceived as a durable space, open and porous lending itself to new forms of function. The creation of a central garden provides clear and open spaces with unobstructed views for residents or passers-by alike which gives a more fluid link between public and private space, breaking down any impression of isolation. The question of urban density and environment are distinctive elements represented in the development of the project.

Dongdaemun Design Plaza in Seoul, Korea by ZAHA HADID ARCHITECTS

Thursday, March 27th, 2014


DDP is the first public project in Korea to utilize the 3-Dimensional Building Information Modelling (BIM) and other digital tools in construction. Throughout the design process, every building requirement was considered as a set of inter-related spatial relationships which will define the social interactions and behavioural structure in/around the project. These relationships became the framework of the design, defining how different aspects of the project, such as spatial organization, programmatic requirements, and engineering come together.

COMMUNAL CREMATORIUM in Ringsted, Denmark by Henning Larsen Architects

Thursday, March 27th, 2014

Article source: Henning Larsen Architects

The crematorium in Ringsted, Denmark is designed with respect and consideration for the cremation process. In most crematoria, the chapel area is the main focus, while the cremation itself is confined to a back-of-house, functional area. Instead, at this communal crematorium, family and loved ones may follow the coffin all the way through the cremation process.
