100 Norfolk Street in New York by ODA–Architecture P.C.

Saturday, December 15th, 2012

Article source: ODA–Architecture P.C.

Located at the Lower east side Manhattan, one of the most significantly diverse areas of New York City, 100 Norfolk Street expresses unlimited potential and ambition hidden within its block. Peering above its small lot, the 12 story building is combining its mass from the surrounding properties to create a stepping volume which cantilevers over the adjacent low rise buildings like an inverted \”wedding cake\” or ziggurat. The unexpected massing, cladded in a glass curtain wall, reflects a paradoxical mid-block freestanding building offering striking views and strong interior light exposure for an array of residential spaces – a pendant above the city.

League of Shadows in Los Angeles, CA by P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S

Friday, December 14th, 2012

Not a Pavilion

Our proposal aims to fully exploit what we recognize as the most fundamental aspect underlying the project: the temporal use of the pavilion as a large outdoor event space. Due to its lack of programming, The conventional graduation pavilion suffers immediately after its purpose has been met, transforming from a place of spectacle to an abandoned vessel. If another pavilion is to be built, the scale of the project demands that it should not exist for a single usage, rather, it should become an icon that attracts public events from the surrounding community. We believe that if executed correctly, the pavilion could potentially activate a node within the downtown area.

Solar Carve Tower in New York, USA by Studio Gang Architects

Saturday, December 8th, 2012

Article source: Studio Gang Architects

Our Solar Carve Tower employs a surprising twist to traditional zoning logic. Designed for a site that borders the High Line on the east with the vast openness of Tenth Avenue, the Lincoln Highway, and the Hudson River to the west, the project proposes inverting the light and air setbacks from the already well-exposed street to the High Line, in order to prioritize the inner-block park.

Cybernetic Assemblages in Chicago, Illinois by Nikita Troufanov

Friday, December 7th, 2012

Article source: Nikita Troufanov

CYBORGS

The proposed Dance Center explores the idea of superimposition and cybernetic assemblages. By combining and overlaying organic, natural, smooth systems with machine-like, synthetic, rigid ones, a deeper experience of architectural space is achieved. Cyborg as an idea and image has informed much of the process where new nature, transformation and time are central themes. Through exploitation of cyborg vocabulary such as plug-ins, prosthetics, new skins and add-ons an architectural Cyborg is developed.
