Nest We Grow in Hokkaido, Japan by University of California Berkeley students

Wednesday, February 4th, 2015

Article source: Hsiu-Wei Chang

In response to an international design-build competition, our team proposed a quintessentially Californian approach embracing many ideas still new to Asia, from where most of us hail. These Californian ideas formed into Nest we Grow, which grew from a shared interest in the materials that make up our build environment with a focus on renewable materials. Nest We Grow won the 4th Annual LIXIL International design-build competition in 2014, and unlike structures built in the first years of the competition, it is an open, public structure. Its main intent is to bring people in the community together to store, prepare and enjoy local foods in the setting of Hokkaido, Japan.

Qods Mosque renovation concept in Tehran, Iran by Arash G Tehrani Architrure

Wednesday, February 4th, 2015

Article source: Arash G Tehrani Architrure

Not like the different forms that we know from churches, or temples; and the reformed morph of these buildings which allow a concrete cube with a cross to be well accepted as a church; not many changes in the form of “mosques” are accepted, specially in central Muslim regions. However many practitioners found no reference of any specific formula for mosque architecture in religious texts, not only the people still recognize a mosque with a traditional architecture and also a dome and minaret, some non-traditional practices showed unpleasant reactions. This project is a practice of Attribute-oriented Architecture to design a mosque with new day architecture, but also to have the spirit of the known one. The architect did not remove the functional elements, but the designed mosque is the decoded aspect of a traditional mosque, and its meanings.

Article source: YTAU Yannick Troubat Architecture Urbanisme

The WHO headquarter stands on the heights of Geneva, the municipal boundary of Prégny-Chambésy and Grand Saconnex, in the neighborhood of international organizations near Geneva-Cointrin Airport. Today it consists of ten buildings of very disparate quality. After 58 years on the current site of its headquarters in Geneva, WHO has undertaken an extensive renovation project. The purpose of the competition is to build a new building in which the staff will be transferred during the renovation, without disruption to the staff and operations of WHO.
