Schindler Elevator Corporation U.S. Headquarters in Morristown, New Jersey by ikon.5 architects

Saturday, January 21st, 2012

Article source: ikon.5 architects

The interior renovation of the Swiss-based Schindler Elevator Corporation transforms an existing mundane 1970’s office building into a distinctive U.S. Headquarters. Schindler’s objective was to create an interior environment that expressed the minimal and purist design aesthetics of its Swiss engineering heritage. Schindler’s corporate mission is to safely move millions of people each day with their elevators and escalators throughout the world. Inspired by contemporary artists working with light and color to illustrate space and movement, our design creates a series of one point perspective ‘mise en scènes’ that abstractly explore movement and displacement.

Kimball Art Center in Park City, Utah by Will Bruder + Partners

Saturday, January 21st, 2012

Article source: Will Bruder + Partners

KAC as Urban Magnet…

Will Bruder + PARTNERS’ design proposal for the reinvented Kimball Art Center creates a community arts pavilion that is scaled to and complementary to its urban context — proportioned to be understood and enjoyed both from the pace of a pedestrian on Main Street or through the perspective of a visitor’s windshield as they arrive in Park City. The Kimball Art Center is conceived as a comfortable building of its place and time that also celebrates the challenge of ‘the new’. It is a home to the possibilities of ‘making and ideas’, as it serves its mission of providing quality arts education, exhibition, and events.

The School of Art and Design at The New York State College of Ceramics by ikon.5 architects

Saturday, January 21st, 2012

Article source: ikon.5 architects

The McGee Art Pavilion is an expansion to the School of Art and Design at the New York State College of Ceramics in Alfred, New York. The Pavilion is designed as a large ceramic vessel for holding art and light. It is set on a plaza between two existing campus buildings on Academic Alley – the main pedestrian thoroughfare on the campus. Its ceramic façade, made of un-glazed terra cotta tubes, is a solar and rain screen. The unglazed terra cotta tubes that make up the screen are expressive of ceramic vessels and art objects being created inside the School of Art and Design.

Coupet Enclosure in Chicago, Illinois by Studio IDE

Friday, January 20th, 2012

Article source: Studio IDE

This project mandated the division of an awkwardly-configured bedroom into two distinct sleeping quarters.  Because of the open character of the loft space and the existing tall ceilings, we approached the solution with the understanding that the new configuration would ultimately result in relatively small yet tall spaces.   In light of this, we chose to bring down one’s visual perception of the spaces and created a separation which allowed for one dedicated (existing) window within each of the new rooms.

Stinson Beach House in California by WA design

Thursday, January 19th, 2012

Article source: WA design

Just north of San Francisco is the largely suburban and rural County of Marin. The bay side has been developed with upscale suburbs, but with zoning rules the west side, which borders the Pacific Ocean, has remained an agricultural and rural preserve. The Marin coastline is one of green rolling hills that slope down to the rugged palisades that meet the Pacific.

Urban Food Production in Chicago, Illinois by Atelier Zündel & Cristea

Thursday, January 19th, 2012

Article source: Atelier Zündel & Cristea

GLOBAL OVERVIEW

The socio-cultural development of the past century has compromised the notion of “progress”. Deforestation, topsoil depletion, excesses of industrial and financial globalisation, biodiversity loss and incessant pressures of population growth on the planet’s limited resources have placed the human being in a condition of rupture with his ecological role as species.
