Sliding Pergolas House in São Paulo, Brazil by FGMF

Tuesday, January 31st, 2017

Article source: FGMF

We were asked by a couple of a local University to design a residence of compact programme in a 500m² (5380ft²) site in a gated community. The husband, a technological-research specialist, longed for different-than-usual housing solutions, and had come into contact with our work through our “Tic-Tac Residence” concept-house (link below), that had been published a few months prior. His wife, on the other hand, wished their home to be more on the conventional side, but also put a lot of value in the relationship between the built-object and the site.

New Silvi Cemetery in Italy by Giovanni Vaccarini architects

Saturday, January 28th, 2017

Article source: Giovanni Vaccarini architects

A cemetery is a place of collective memory. Walking in these places re-dimensions the scope of our efforts in relation to the passing of time.

It is difficult to find a \”pattern\” in the expansions of the last decades. This probably reflects the uncertainty and cultural disconnection experienced during the era of mass industrialization.

Renovation of the ‘Alésia’ cinema in Paris, France by Manuelle Gautrand Architecture

Saturday, January 28th, 2017

Article source: Metropolis Communication

The project’s concerns:

In 2011, the Gaumont-Pathé group decided to renovate the existing building in order to upgrade the cinemas and to improve user comfort. This was part of a broader scheme to gradually update the image of their chain of cinemas, which often occupy exceptional, city-centre sites, but suffered from being seen as old-fashioned.

The aim is to transform them into high-quality cultural venues, animated day and night, and suffi ciently fl exible to accommodate a varied programme, mixing cinema with other cultural events: the image of the city cinema was to be entirely rethought.
