The construction of the new library for the ParqueTecnológicoItaipu(ItaipuTechnological Park – PTI in portuguese) over the ruins of the former Itaipu workforce housing lodges aimed at writing the history of the largest dam in the Americas into built form. By preserving physically and metaphorically the state in which the PTI found the area when it started to be implemented, the building highlights the expressive renewal the old sheds have gone through since the Park was created.

TIWAG POWER STATION CONTROL CENTRE WITH VISITOR CENTRE in Tirol, Austria by Bechter Zaffignani Architekten

Wednesday, January 21st, 2015

Article source: Bechter Zaffignani Architekten

The new building for the power station control centre of Tiroler Wasserkraft AG in Silz is a massive, tower-like, free-standing building. The dominant building on the site was and still remains the old turbine building. Various additions reduced the impact made by this building, with the result that the high-energy processes on the power station site were no longer externally legible. Through the forma idiom it employs the new building attempts to depict these processes.

Passive House Che in SUCEAVA, ROMANIA by Tecto Arhitectura

Wednesday, January 21st, 2015

Article source: Tecto Arhitectura

The challenge was to create a simple, sustainable, two-storey unit that would fit into a special site: a mature forest inside  a northern romanian city. Form and Building orientation are designed in order to maximise the use of natural daylight and south orientation. To achieve this, the chosen specific site for implementing the volume was on the upper part of the property, gently blending on the slope of the terrain, with great views over the entire forest and the horizon landscape.
