Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

Article source: BIG-BJARKE INGELS GROUP

A life-size indoor maze by BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group is sure to delight its visitors at the National Building Museum in Washington, offering a glimpse into the upcoming BIG exhibition at the Museum in early 2015.

“The concept is simple: as you travel deeper into a maze, your path typically becomes more convoluted. What if we invert this scenario and create a maze that brings clarity and visual understanding upon reaching the heart of the labyrinth”, Bjarke Ingels, Founding Partner, BIG.

T2 Headquarters in Melbourne, Australia by Landini Associates

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

Article source: Landini Associates

Showcasing the creation of a new life for an old building, Landini Associates brief was to restore the former Collingwood industrial warehouse into the new headquarters base for T2.

The aim was to respect and celebrate the original building, while creating a dramatic statement to represent the T2 company’s ethos. Throughout the building, timber beams, columns and brick walls were sandblasted to bring back their original finish whilst a few scuffs and marks are kept as a remembrance of its history. This was contrasted with T2’s trademark dark, streamlined pallet.

Eloisa Iturbe Studio in Buenos Aires, Argentina by POP-ARQ

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

Article source: POP-ARQ

Pop-Arq is an Argentinean branch of Supersudaca. At Supersudaca, and most of all with the Chilean architect Juan Pablo Corvalán, we developed the ‘mueblenstein’ concept, a mixture between furniture and Frankenstein. Those are objects that resolve several problems at a time by adding functions. In reduced or complex spaces, sometimes a single object can solve the whole architectural demand and linking functions not related.

Min House in Buenos Aires, Argentina by POP-ARQ

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

Article source: POP-ARQ 

The house is part of a typical Buenos Aires condominium typology called “PH”. The houses are aligned in a very long and narrow lot, and connected through a corridor. In this case, the unit is located in the middle of the condominium with no direct connection to the street, opening to its own patio. The lot area is quite small, measuring 7m by 6m.

Siamoises Mentana-Boyer in Québec, Canada by BLOUIN TARDIF Architecture – Environnement

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

Article source: BLOUIN TARDIF Architecture – Environnement 

Tucked away in the heart of Plateau Mont-Royal, on the private lot of a former commercial building, are these Siamese residences. Each co-property occupies half of the lot; their entrances are, respectively, on Mentana and Boyer streets.

The project’s constraints are those of the classic urban context: the envelopes of neighbouring buildings, joint use, and the challenge of natural light.

Twickenham Stadium Hospitality in United Kingdom by SHH Architects

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

Article source: SHH Architects

Twickenham Stadium, the home of English rugby,was looking to upgrade the customer experience at its food and beverage retail offers in order to be truly world-class across all areas of its offer in time for the 2015 Rugby World Cup, which England is set to host after winning the 2009 selection bid. At the same time, the stadium’s owners – the RFU (Rugby Football Union)- had changed a number of its core branding elements and these also had to be incorporated into any new designs. The result is the Twickenham Experience – a joint venture between the RFU and operator Levy Restaurants(the sports and leisure division of Compass UK & Ireland).
