Office and Data Processing Center Building in Milan, Italy by Giussaniarch – Roberto Giussani / Andrea Balestrero

Sunday, March 13th, 2016

Article source: Giussaniarch – Roberto Giussani / Andrea Balestrero

The building, which houses offices and a data processing center, aims to complete the building curtain of a block situated at the intersection of three urban axes. Its minimum volumetric articulation sets a moment of \”silence\” and abstraction against the linguistic overlapping of the context. The uniformity of prospects is obtained thanks to an innovative double membrane filtering façade system, provided with vertical sheets in silk-screen printed glass, which automatically pivot according to the incidence of sunlight to optimise internal lighting and heating conditions.

Concorso EURAC in Bolzano, Italy by Gianluca Milesi Architecture

“The shape of mind (synapses) creates unexpected perspectives on sites: architecture is not the perfection of the experience (wisdom) or just a representation, but is the capability to produce images, the virtue of a person who learned to imagine and to push his or her imagination further”.

Article source: BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group

King Street West is set in a transitional area of Toronto. From the tall towers of the Central Business District to the East, to the low-rise neighborhoods in the Northwest, the skyline is a mark of the city’s progress. Located at the meeting point of three 20th century neighborhood parks, BIG and Westbank propose a mixed use development with a public plaza that will create a new center for the community while connecting the various pedestrian pathways that crisscross the area.

Business center with a pool in Saint Petersburg, Russia by za bor architects

Sunday, March 13th, 2016

Article source: za bor architects

The design solution of the business center in St. Petersburg has been developed for quite a large site which doesn’t have any essential changes of the area topography. It is supposed to build a separate three-storied building in the form of a simple, uniform volume with a monolithic framework. It is going to be used only by the company which owns it, so it has no areas for rent.

A Resident next to a Historic Site in Japan by HYAD architects

Sunday, March 13th, 2016

Article source: HYAD architects

The shape of the lot is short in north and south and stretches long in west and east. The lot is adjacent to a historic site on the east side.Also, the lot is located in a school zone. Lying within a residential area, there are a number of elementary, junior high and high schools as well as a city hall.The historical site is now developed into a peaceful park in which local residents gather and relax.Therefore, the east side of the lot is the most beautiful part of the residential area. People can enjoy the nature and the open sky.The site is designated as the Cultural Properties Protection Area.  Excavation is required when developing the surrounding area that includes the lot.  We are restricted in our building plan that we are only allowed to excavate 30cm from the surface as some pieces of kawara (roof tiles) from the Nara period (about 1300 years ago) were discovered through the pre-construction investigation.The building is completely closed on the west side facing the street and on the north side which is a vacant lot.

New Observation Deck in Norway by fly Architecture

Friday, March 11th, 2016

Article source: fly Architecture

The design of the new Viewpoint on the Pulpit Rock in Norway, is an attempt to combine art with architecture. Based on the famous painting “The Persistence of Memory” by Salvador Dali, „fly” wanted to take the surrealistic melting clocks as a template for the design of the new observation deck. A part of the rock is carved out to give the impression of a giant eye. In this cavity, a grandstand is provided with stairs and around it an aluminum/glass structure is stretched. This glass roof with the underlying grandstand, invites visitors to linger both in sunny and rainy weather.
