Residential building in Staines, UK by Architects of Invention

Wednesday, February 11th, 2015

Article source: Architects of Invention

The building is seven stories high with descending terraces at the front, which offer views towards the river from the internally situated apartments. While the building is foremost designated as residential, part of the ground floor is occupied with space for retail. The building’s round shape creates public spaces on the ground floor – opening to the north–east between the Strata House and the new development and also from the south-east corner on the embankment by the bridge.

Cupolas by Martin Rajniš

Article source: Martin Rajniš

Cupolas are an experimental project to verify the structural possibilities of the cupola and methods of enveloping it. The saga began in the summer of 2011, when we built the first cupola in the meadows at Maxov. It is a variation on the tried-and-tested hollow stack system, only the components are joined with screws. It is beautiful. Cross-country skiers ran through it in winter. We decided to give it a dress of ice. Frozen water created beautiful shapes on the thin latticework, and so the first envelope version saw the light of day.

“Building at Beylikdüzü” in Istanbul, Turkey by YEGENA

Wednesday, February 11th, 2015

Article source: YEGENA

The building at Beylikdüzü / İstanbul was designed in 2011. Starting point of this design was the segmentation of a rectangular prism whose size is at maximum allow able by local zoning regulations, by load-bearing walls. After this first design step, while these load-bearing walls form the balconies on the building block , they also establish the facade of the building by back and forth free and independent movements between floors. This secondary and final step is  perceived especially from perspective views and constitutes an irregular repetition array. Although started with a regular geometry, by the help of this irregular repetition array , the desired attractive irregular rhythm is achieved.
