Article source: MATEO ARQUITECTURA

In Toulouse, near the airport and the river Garonne.

A housing development that seeks to optimize the living conditions of each of its cells. The whole is broken down to prioritize the meeting with the domestic rather than insisting on the abstraction of the idea.

Saturday, May 10th, 2014

Article source: MIDE architetti + Paolo Didonè

Following the 2012 earthquake that struck Emilia Romagna a competition was announce to rebuild a destroyed school gymnasium in Massa Finalese.

The site, which is located in the north-east side of a school park, is the border between the urban area and the country side, suggesting the new building to be the new “connecting tool” between these two realities.

The main focus is to create a structure able to soften the urban/country “boundary” and to characterize the whole of the school park as well:

LUIS VIALE –PATERNAL BUENOS AIRES ARGENTINA by Nidolab arquitectura

Saturday, May 10th, 2014

Article source: Nidolab arquitectura

The Project was based  on a house built in the year  1918, located in La Paternal, a neighbourhood that still preserves the original grid of the city caracterized by small residential buildings, that managed to stay unaffected by the great movement of the city.

The owners, a very young couple, were searching for a new private room that would be built on an existing roof terrace, leaving the ground floor for the common areas, a recoding studio, a small showroom and a working space for a psychiatrist.

Dunes Bowl in Brera, Milan, Italy by Alessandro Isola

Saturday, May 10th, 2014

Article source: Alessandro Isola

By taking simple everyday objects such as bowls and serving trays the design reinterprets them in a more contemporary form by morphing them together to create a sculptural piece.

The shape was inspired by organic, free flowing forms such as sand dunes.  The two concave sections are in different sizes to hold aperitif snacks, hors d’oesurves or fresh fruit.
