Disco Volante in Vienna, Austria by Madame Architects

Saturday, August 27th, 2016

Article source: Madame Architects

The recently opened Pizzeria is the second of its kind hosted by Maria Fuchs, a vanguard in the recent “genuine pizza” hype in Vienna. The name “Disco Volante”  brings back memories of the James Bond villain Emilio Largo’s escape vessel. Also a famous car designed in the early 50ies carried this name (there has recently been a relaunch by Alfa Romeo). But in fact does the name of the pizzeria simply refer to its original meaning “flying disc”.

Cafetería Colegio Los Nogales in Bogotá, Colombia by Taller Arquitectura De Bogota

Saturday, August 27th, 2016

Article source: Taller Arquitectura De Bogota

Under the idea of ​​making an expressive and seismically efficient structure, the pavilion is designed with a single type V column which gradually rotates and reverses, generating an apparently random sequence. As a result, the building simulates movement creating static movement architecture. As well, the resulting shape is very efficient to resist seismic forces.

Article source: ARQMOV Workshop

ColiRoma OneHundredTwentyEight is part of the urban fabric of the Colonia Roma Norte in Mexico City. The district’s features and use of public space offers a unique perspective on progressive neighborhood living within the city, and as such, reflects contemporary society, where life and living happens not only in our private spaces but also in our nearby public spaces. Activities, like those of the Condesa-Roma Cultural Corridor, generate vibrant personal relationships with neighbors that allow for living together in the public space. This is how the concept of livable space and lifestyle has a direct impact on this residential project.
