The Forum in Hong Kong, China by Aedas

Wednesday, June 17th, 2015

Article source: Aedas

The Forum redevelopment is a holistic design, integrating a new office building, sculpture park and events plaza and there by revitalising the entire Exchange Square development. The compact and exquisitely detailed new building opens up the site visually and physically, creating a significant public space designed as a series of stone platforms linked with water features and planting. The design by Keith Griffiths is inspired by precious gems. The perfect cube of the building is dramatically tilted to create a grand entrance from the plaza. The geometry of the tilted plane is resolved into the elegant diamond cut façade of the building. As a Grade-A office in the heart of the Central district, the column-free office interior with its 2.9m of floor-to-ceiling space evokes a tailor-made environment with ample natural daylight from all elevations.

ANA CROWNE PLAZA HOTEL HIROSHIMA CHAPEL in Japan by NIKKEN SPACE DESIGN LTD

Wednesday, June 17th, 2015

Article source: NIKKEN SPACE DESIGN LTD

A wondrous, sun-dappled chapel

Concept of total excellence
This is a new chapel that opened in a hotel located in the global tourism city of Hiroshima. Focusing on the fact that this chapel’s birth in the lobby area would make it the face of the hotel and convey its brand message, the design concept was to create a distinctive, unrivalled space. Since this chapel faces the hotel’s courtyard, wooden lattice panels were used to create a wondrous, sun-dappled chapel that is integrated with the garden.

Museum for Qujing Culture Center Completed in China Designed by Hordor Design Group and Atelier Alter

Wednesday, June 17th, 2015

Article source: Hordor Design Group and Atelier Alter

Qujing is one of a kind. Two impossible miracles co-exist in city of Qujing: the Longyan Tablet and a fish fossil of 4,000-billion-year-old. While Longyan Tablet marks the invention of a prominent calligraphic style, the fish fossil rewrites geology in human history. The archaeological relics are both metaphor and subject matter of the project. According to Plato, “whatever once exists can never cease to exist,” the collective consciousness of the city and her citizens awaits a resurrection, in a contemporary setting, through the materialization of a series of significant projects.

FERRER XOCOLATA in Girona, Spain by arnau estudi d’arquitectura

Wednesday, June 17th, 2015

Article source: arnau estudi d’arquitectura 

Building a dream is not easy, but that was the commission. Yes, as usual, but that time it was like never before.

We had to renovate an old building in order to create a space entirely devoted to chocolate. That was the sweet dream of Jordi, the chocolate maker. We had to do it withemotion, with metaphors, with a sense of humour… We had to be at the level of Easter cakes and chickens!

Vltava waterway in Czech Republic by ATELIER 8000

Wednesday, June 17th, 2015

Article source: ATELIER 8000 

In the Czech Republic, the current trend is revitalizing embankments, bringing water and streams back to the fabric of cities under the motto ´River back to the People´. The project “Making the Vltava waterway navigable” thus played its role in initiating this effort; it supports and introduces life back to the water sheet and its surroundings – this is the natural associate part of the project.
