Offices Lille in Euralille, France by LAN Architecture

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014

Article source: LAN Architecture

In 1990, in his preface titled “Quantum Leap” for the work presenting the Euralille project[1], Rem Koolhaas wrote: “In our contemporary world, programs become abstract in the sense that they are no longer tied to a specific place or city. They float and gravitate opportunistically around those places that provides them with the most connections.” And then, “All these facts describe a new condition that is at once local and global, as important for the “Japanese” as it is for the “Lillois.”

Platonian Tower in Lima, Peru by Tammo Prinz Architects

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014

Article source: Tammo Prinz Architects

URBAN 

The sloped max. envelope was given by Peruan building codes. The program was massive.

Therefore a sunken outside plaza was introduced, connected to an open and public reception space, serving together as possible event space. This way the living function could reach down close to the ground floor, still providing enough privacy through the gap generated by the sunken plaza.
