Stanford Central Energy Facility in California by ZGF Architects LLP

Wednesday, May 25th, 2016

Article source: ZGF Architects LLP

The Stanford Central Energy Facility is a transformational campus‐wide energy system – replacing a 100% fossil‐fuel‐based combined heat and power plant with grid‐sourced electricity and first‐of‐its kind heat recovery system. Positioning Stanford as a national leader in energy efficiency and carbon reduction, the results are impressive: greenhouse gas emissions are slashed by 68%; fossil fuel use by 65%; and campus‐wide water use by 15%. This comprehensive Stanford Energy System Innovation (SESI) system will eliminate 150,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually, the equivalent of removing 32,000 cars from the road every year. Expected energy savings to Stanford over 35 years is $425 million.

Mosman Bay House in Perth, Australia by Iredale Pedersen Hook Architects

Wednesday, May 25th, 2016

Article source: Iredale Pedersen Hook Architects

The Mosman Bay House explores two contrasting spatial experiences, one is dynamic and fluid and one is passive and contemplative. One focuses on the distant views to the river and city and one is embedded with the garden. This Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde quality responds to the programmatic requirements of active and communal spaces; living, dining, cooking and private spaces; sleeping, study and bathing.

It has been 20 years since the Metro system first established in Taiwan’s capital city, Taipei.

Kanoa Tower in Nantes, France by Studio 02 Architectes

Wednesday, May 25th, 2016

Article source: Studio 02 Architectes 

The Kanoa tower is a project that fits into the vast urban development plan for the Island of Nantes.

This is a very understated building, whose shape, worked to the extreme, is the main feature.  To minimize the tower’s impact on the street, it was designed in a “boot” shape and discreetly covered in zinc, which was laid down in shingles to create a scaled effect.
