Contemporary Art Museum in Raleigh, North Carolina by Brooks + Scarpa Architects (designed with Rhino and AutoCAD)

Tuesday, February 7th, 2012

Article source: Brooks + Scarpa Architects

Located in Raleigh’s revitalizing Historic Depot District, an unlikely butterfly has emerged from its decades-long cocoon. The historic 1910 two-story brick structure built for Allen Forge & Welding Company and enlarged around 1927 for the Brogden Produce Company — and more recently home to longtime occupant Cal-Tone Paints — has emerged from its asbestos clad sheathing into a new incarnation as the home of Raleigh’s Contemporary Art Museum (CAM).

Yoga Deva in Gilbert, Arizona by blank studio architecture

Sunday, February 5th, 2012

Article source: blank studio architecture

Yoga Deva (deva is a Sanskrit word, meaning deity) creates an internal sequence of spaces whose primary impulse is to remove the visitor from the exterior visual environmental conditions in every way. Sited within a commercial condominium complex, the building is surrounded by asphalt parking, minimal planted islands of non-native decorative vegetation, and other buildings that are nearly indistinguishable from one to the next. This new internal environment offers an architectural and sequential chiaroscuro to the external strip-mall type reality and prepares the visitor for practice of inward meditation and contemplation.

New gallery / public house for a small mining town in eastern Arizona.

The Social Condenser project is located at the base of the Superstition Mountain Range in the Town of Superior, Arizona which was founded in 1882 and has strong ties to mining of copper, silver and gold. The project is uniquely positioned between historic Main Street and Queen Creek. The site consists of two parcels, the project parcel to the north and an open landscaped parcel to be developed into future outdoor dining and music pavilion, and is bisected by an access path from the upper street level and a lower wooden footbridge that spans across the creek.

The two realities are visible  to each other but separated by a glass enclosure.

Article source: University of Arkansas Community Design Center

As a complement to Fayetteville’s 2030 City Plan, a 2030 Transit City Scenario Plan independently models a future based on development of a streetcar system. While city planning is generally future-oriented, scenario planning models specific futures from the insistent exploration of a particular driver through “what if” propositions.

Gehry Residence in Santa Monica, California by Gehry Partners LLP

Article source: Gehry Partners LLP

The Gehry Residence in Santa Monica, Calif., has been selected for the 2012 AIA Twenty-five Year Award. A seemingly adhoc collection of raw, workmanlike materials wrapped around an unassuming two-story clapboard bungalow, Frank Gehry’s, FAIA, home for his wife, Berta, and two sons found a literal, but unexpected, answer to the question of neighborhood context, and used it to forever re-shape the formal and material boundaries of architecture.
