Fayetteville Festival Park Performance Pavilion in North Carolina by Clark Nexsen

Friday, August 3rd, 2012

Article source: Clark Nexsen

The Performance Pavilion is the major architectural element in the overall plan of the new Festival Park in Fayetteville, North Carolina. It is comprised of a raised, covered stage, and back-of-house functions in a simple, rectangular extrusion. It is intended that, on a daily basis, the pavilion appears more like a park folly than an empty stage. To this end, the back-of-house functions slide to one side, allowing an open view through to the backdrop of existing trees. Operable panels, which can be retracted from behind a scrim wall, create a backdrop and crossover when performances are taking place.

Residence on Terrybrae Terrace in Tarzana, California by Edmund M. Einy, FAIA Architect

Saturday, July 28th, 2012

Article source: Edmund M. Einy, FAIA Architect

The spatial experience unfolds as one descends from the entry ramp down into the home, here the view of the street and its noise are diminished and the quite realm of the house pervades.

The program is organized vertically with the public living, dining, kitchen, and the main art gallery spaces on the lower level and the private children’s and parent’s rooms on the upper level. The lower level’s open plan is designed for shifting social activities. The floor is seen as a “field” in which pool, furniture, and objects sit. Large pivoting and sliding glass doors extend the habitable space through to the outside. Horizontal circulation wraps this field and serves as path for the viewing of art displayed on the walls.

Screenplay in Los Angeles by Oyler Wu Collaborative

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012

Article source: Wu Collaborative

Screenplayby Oyler Wu Collaborative will be on view from 6/22 to 6/24 at Dwell on Design 2012 at LA Convention Center.

Screenplay is conceived of as a ‘play’ on one’s visual perception.  This twenty-one foot long screen wall is constructed of forty-five thousand linear feet of rope strung through a series of lightweight steel frames.  The wall is designed with the intention of provoking a sense of curiosity by slowly revealing its form and complexity through physical and visual engagement with the work.  The wall is made from a repetitious steel framework with rope infill that varies over the length of the wall in three dimensions, forming a thickened undulating screen made up of dense line-work.

Rose Library in Norman, Oklahoma by John Postic

Thursday, July 19th, 2012

Article source: John Postic

Libraries today serve as gathering places, community centers, and cafes. We need to stop viewing libraries as sacred temples of reading and research and more as a collective gathering place of people, ideas, events, and resources; a place that incites imagination and satisfies curiosity – a veritable flowering of culture. With a form that evokes the Oklahoma Rose, this library has a multi-layered skin that passively filters light, sound, and visitors to the library. These ‘petals’ diffuse the light entering the library, reducing solar heat gain and providing excellent reading light.
