MOSF (Museum of science fiction) in Washington D.C by Miguel A. Arias

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

Article source: Miguel A. Arias

The conception of a museum of science fiction is created by the need to expose the exorbitant knowledge that this discipline has developed throughout history. Supported by actual studies, this science includes theories and structure still unconfirmed, making possible validity and creation, any invention of the uncertain or nonexistent.

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

Article source: Form4 Architecture

Luminous Moon-Gate was designed in 2013 for the Taichung City Cultural Center International Competition. The design intent behind the proposed project hints at multiple interpretative roles for Taichung: a portal into heightened consciousness, a lantern of knowledge, a catalyst for metropolitan living, a cultural lung for the body of the city, a gate toward a responsible future, a center regenerative of community life, a landmark for orientation.

SIP m3 House in Santiago Metropolitan Region, Chile by Ian Hsü, Gabriel Rudolphy (HSU•RUDOLPHY Studio)

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

Article source: Ian Hsü, Gabriel Rudolphy (HSU·RUDOLPHY Studio)

Aim

The project was to build a 155 m2 house in a very limited time frame, and with a reduced budget. In response we decided to use an efficient construction system and a simplified palette of finishes.

We designed a structure completely based on SIP panels (structural insulated panels), supported on a grid of foundations that intervene minimally in the existing terrain.

At the left side of the lobby there is a wood stair with flown steps and it is accompanied of a interior garden fully lighted through the skylight.

RAIL BALTIC PARNU PASSENGER TERMINAL in Estonia by Spark Architects

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

Article source: SPARK

Site conditions / new location.

New Rail Baltic Parnu passenger terminal is located next to Parnu River, in the south part of Parnu town. The current site is considered to become a transportation hub for all public transports in the near future. In order to use the full potential of the site and its context, as well as to preserve nature, the new terminal building will be located in the south part of the competition area, next to the future Rail Baltic railroads. The new location of the terminal building creates an imaginary axis of future connection between both river and overland transportation networks. Also, since the new terminal buildings is within walking distance from a drop-off area for the public transportation, it will also serve as a bus stop for city buses, as well as an drop off zone for private vehicles and public taxis. Therefore, the new location of terminal building will become the central junction for all transportation networks.

NHRV house in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina by FILTER ARHITEKTURA

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

Article source: FILTER ARHITEKTURA

Emerging under same socio-economic parameters as majority of houses in Bosnia and Herzegovina- within a small budget, an underdeveloped construction industry, deregulated urban planning conditions and chaotic building permit bureaucracy- house NHRV tries to subvert the banal reality of contemporary House and Nation Building in post-war Bosnia and Herzegovina (B&H). It challenges the status quo of contemporariness, by being an extraordinary response to its immediate and wider context through inherently ordinary means.

PERGOLA in West Coast by APOLLO architects & associates

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

Article source: APOLLO architects & associates

The client asked us for a house with a sense of openness, as seen in the Case Study Houses in West Coast of the United States. The site is situated at the back of a parking lot rented out on a monthly basis, and we decided to provide no openings on the exterior facades to protect privacy. The house has a simple L-shaped plan, built around a covered entrance courtyard in the center, to decrease the construction cost. The covered courtyard, also used as an entrance approach, serves as an intermediate space between inside and outside.
