Residence at Alibag, India by Malik Architecture

Tuesday, October 6th, 2015

Article source: Malik Architecture

The concept echoes a deep understanding of centuries of traditional ‘Konkan’ construction techniques albeit interpreted in a contemporary syntax. The site is deeply forested and we knew that we wanted to achieve the final product with a minimum impact on the existing flora, without disturbing nature’s equilibrium.

NESTLE FACTORY in Sao Paulo, Brazil by METRO ARQUITETOS ASSOCIADOS

Sunday, October 4th, 2015

Article source: METRO ARQUITETOS ASSOCIADOS

Introduction

The main intention for the design of Nestle´s factory visiting areas was to create a landmark in the generic landscape of the highway that connects São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, revealing the existence of a public and accessible space. This visibility is achieved by the installation of two steel framed glass towers, which are connected to foot bridges that roads and wraps the existing building, granting access to the elevated walkway inside the factory. In this manner, visitors and service traffic are kept apart from each other. The structural geometry and the materials used were designed to trigger a sensorial and perceptive experience and to contribute for a clearer comprehension of the history and production of chocolates throughout visitation.

Business Building in Nova Gorica, Slovenia by Real Engineering d.o.o.

Friday, October 2nd, 2015

Article source: Real Engineering d.o.o.

The commission was straightforward: to design and construct a new commercial building on the outskirts of Nova Gorica, a Slovenian city founded in 1948 near the ‘original’ town of Gorica and close to the Italian border.  The Slovenian investment group Istrabenz Gorenje, who among other things invests in new energies, wanted an environmentally friendly building that would also provide space for a kindergarten.

Droneport in Rwanda, Africa by Foster + Partners

Friday, October 2nd, 2015

Article source: Foster + Partners

Lord Foster has launched proposals for the Droneport project in Africa to support cargo drone routes capable of delivering urgent and precious supplies to remote areas on a massive scale. The project is a collaboration between Redline partners led by Afrotech, École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL); the Norman Foster Foundation; and Foster + Partners. Cargo drone routes have utility wherever there is a lack of roads. Just as mobile phones dispensed with landlines, cargo drones can transcend geographical barriers such as mountains, lakes, and unnavigable rivers without the need for large-scale physical infrastructure. Just a third of Africans live within two kilometres of an all-season road, and there are no continental motorways, almost no tunnels, and not enough bridges that can reach people living in far-flung areas of the continent.

Zig Zag in Nieuwveen, Netherlands by Möhn + Bouman Architecten

Friday, October 2nd, 2015

Article source: Möhn + Bouman Architecten 

This two-storey, 110-meter long residential centre for people with mental disabilities has been designed in close conjunction with an existing tree structure. The resulting zig-zag- shape visually divides the building in smaller, human-scale areas, thus avoiding the perception of an institution. Slowly rising between the trees, a structure of wooden boardwalks accesses the dwellings on the first floor, providing it with a secondary landscape with a unique quality of its own. Every-group dwelling has its own entrance, with integrated sitting benches marking the transition between outside and inside. They are inviting residents to linger and interact with others, as do the retreating zones inside, featuring moos-clad floors and birch trunks.

Article source: MESSNER Architects

The starting point for the development of the architectural design was the building‘s positioning and orientation within the lot focusing on the site-specific morfological aspects of the ground, the connection to the existing road and path network as well the functional requirements to the premises.
