LAS ARENAS in Barcelona, Spain by Alonso Balaguer and Associated Architects

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

Article source:  Alonso Balaguer and Associated Architects

In spite of the fact that the former bullring, in disuse since 1989 and with a neo-mudéjar style, didn’t actually have high architectural value, it was clear that, being poised in such an impressive location for more than a century, this site was really in the minds of every citizen, and its symbolic value lead to a suitable preservation. That’s why the architectural answer, already from the first outlines, was orientated towards its maintenance as a second skin of the new building. Nevertheless, such preservation met great technical complexity: first, an evident physical deterioration; second, a strange height, four meters above the nearby streets. The technical effort was worth it, in the end to present a strong, atypical cylindrical form.

Sierra Bonita Housing in West Hollyood, California by Patrick Tighe Architecture

Tuesday, May 13th, 2014

Article source: Patrick Tighe Architecture

The design challenge of this project—the first all-affordable mixed-use development in West Hollywood and the first designed and completed according to the city’s new Green Building Ordinance—was to fit the desired 42 accessible units on a 13,000-square-foot site and within a 50-foot height limit. The design used minimal exterior setbacks and reversed the typical unit layout—locating the bedrooms along the interior building courtyard and the living areas on the street side—to capitalize on views and natural light.

Jose Vasconcelos Public Library in Mexico City, Mexico by Pascal Arquitectos

Tuesday, May 13th, 2014

Article source: Pascal Arquitectos

Why build a library today? seems absurd, it would be more logical to build a museum for books.

This would be like a mausoleum, a masterpiece of our last president who in a patron’s act wanted to be remembered and transcend through its materiality.His intentions were to mimic what was done with the construction of the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao; to trigger the real estate recovery of the zone by creating added value to de adjacent land.

HOTEL OHLA ***** in Via Laietana nº49, Barcelona, Spain by Alonso y Balaguer

Tuesday, May 13th, 2014

Article source: Alonso y Balaguer

The building of Heribert Salas’ (1926 – 2011) house in Via Laietana 49, Barcelona in 1926 could never be considered a finished project and the clash of what was then considered a modern building within the weave of Ciutat Vella left wounds that have taken over 80
years to heal.
