DS House in Brussels, Belgium by DWEK ARCHITECTURE + PARTNERS s.c./s.p.r.l.u.

Wednesday, January 20th, 2016

Article source: DWEK ARCHITECTURE + PARTNERS s.c./s.p.r.l.u. 

Although we now think spontaneously of symmetry as being the perfect replication of two sides around a central axis, originally, to cite Vitruvius, “symmetry is a proper agreement between the members of the work itself and relation between the different parts and the whole general scheme”. There is no mention of bilateral symmetry. In Greek, summetria quite simply means “proportion” or “measure”. But since ancient times, sensible to balance and stability, mankind has built edifices that adopt the rules of bilateral symmetry: pyramids, temples, cathedrals, etc., along with vases, bifaces and steles. Yet too perfect symmetry induces boredom. Emotion leaps out from imperfections, the unforeseen and discrepancies.

The Segmented Building System by jantzen studio

Wednesday, January 20th, 2016

Article source: jantzen studio

The Segmented Building System is an eco-friendly, energy efficient, prefabricated, modular building system. The building components consist of four-foot wide segments that vary in height, and can be delivered to the construction site in pieces, or as assembled profiles. Each of the segments are made of structural insulated foam panels that are connected together to form a floor, walls, and a roof. The configurations of these panels can make full floor, walls, and roof profiles, and/or half floor, wall, and roof profiles. They can be prefabricated with various kinds of exterior cladding such as metal or cement composite boards, and/or they can be clad at the construction site, after the structural panels have been assembled.

The bicycle bridge across the Sava River in Slovenia by Dans architects

Wednesday, January 20th, 2016

Article source: Dans architects

DANS arhitekti was founded in 2004 by Rok Bogataj, Miha Dešman, Eva Fišer Berlot, Vlatka Ljubanović, and Katarina Pirkmajer Dešman. Their approach leads to architecture that conceives the physical environment, space and culture that we live and work within; architecture that fosters social contacts, acts therapeutically, improves living culture and expands our imagination. Their architecture originates from the reflection of the physical, social, and symbolic context of the location, where it is embedded, and the content it is intended for. DANS arhitekti are most fond of projects with a salient social dimension, such as schools, kindergartens, hospitals, buildings for people with special needs, and, in recent years, they are engaged in the wondrous realm of sacral architecture.

Osolzip in Gyeonggi-do, South Korea by B.U.S Architecture

Wednesday, January 20th, 2016

Article source: B.U.S Architecture

As rapid industrialization and urbanization made people flock in the cities, housing spaces have developed by focusing on quantity rather than quality. In this background, most citizens are used to saying that “My dream is to go down to the quiet countryside and live there by building a house if I earn money.”

Malin+Goetz Madison Avenue in New York by Messana O’Rorke

Wednesday, January 20th, 2016

Article source: Messana O’Rorke

Our client, Malin+Goetz entrusted us with designing their third NYC store. Even though their visual identity is minimal with unified color-coding, they requested us to create a space that accommodates to the Upper East Side demographics by providing a traditional customer experience. Therefore it was crucial to have a layout that is clean-cut so if someone entered the store they would understand its functionality immediately. We were also focusing on using materials that are familiar for the potential customers in the neighborhood.

Entrances to the Tatra Mountains National Park in Zakopane, Poland by 2pm Architekci

Wednesday, January 20th, 2016

Article source: 2pm Architekci

The Park’s entrances are situated in a close vicinity to parking lots and public transportation stops where tourists start their visit to the Tatra Mountains National Park. They incorporate checkout desks, a tourist information (combined with a small bookshop), information boards, communications routes, resting spots, and toilets. The current buildings are more than a dozen years old, built in the Zakopane architectural style. They do not meet the requirements needed to serve touristic traffic. On the Park’s premises there are 17 such entrances, of different sizes. The competition work comprises the design of two of such entrances, Białego Valley (smaller) and Kościeliska Valley (of higher capacity), with the possibility of adapting them for the rest of the entrances.

Madison Central Public Library in Wisconsin by MSR (Meyer, Scherer, & Rockcastle)

Wednesday, January 20th, 2016

Article source: MSR (Meyer, Scherer, & Rockcastle)

The reconstruction of a worn, 45-year-old, 95,000 square-foot library has resulted in a completely reimagined building. A 25,000 square-foot expansion encloses the formerly open entry with a glass atrium space and adds a partial third floor. New flexible spaces and technologies recognize evolving community needs with dedicated areas for children and teens, public meeting rooms, a making space, and a high-tech media lab. The design also incorporates a number of sustainable design strategies, some of the most prominent of which include solar panels and a green roof.
