LIVING STONES in Cinisi PA, Italy by Tomas Ghisellini Architects

Thursday, October 29th, 2015

Article source: Tomas Ghisellini Architects 

The new church of Cinisi will be an unforgettable and extraordinary physical icon, a translation of the feeling of its origins: a large family of wiry stems, like a cloud of souls, a crowd of people huddled together, lives on site thickening around an ideally aggregating center. The progressive thickening of the elements culminates into a dense and compact architectural core, the proper body of the church, in which the stems seem about to dive or from which, depending on interpretation, seem to have been carved out.

Familistère Dwellings Montreuil in France by archi5

Thursday, October 29th, 2015

Article source: archi5

archi5 was founded in 2003, the fruit of its founders’ common agency experience and the approach they share to architecture.

A context-based approach to projects is key: the site, the programme, the social and cultural challenges are all examined, nalyzed and compared. These data are then transformed into questions.

Yutaka Kindergarten in Saitama, Japan by SUGAWARADAISUKE

Thursday, October 29th, 2015

Article source: SUGAWARADAISUKE 

Yutaka Kindergarten is built on a steady philosophy of play-based education, encouraging children to develop their thinking actively. Space that offer diversity of experiences by stimulating children to explore and develop their thinking was required to practice this education policy. In order to respond to its needs, we traced the word “kindergarten” to its origin – “children’s garden” – and converted the site into gardens for diverse children’s activities. Three approaches were adopted to realize the ‘gardens of learning through play’.
