ARTIC Mass-Painting in Anaheim, California by Emergent Tom Wiscombe

Sunday, September 18th, 2011

Article source: Tom Wiscombe

This proposal is based on creating a complex visual oscillation between two and three dimensional realms. Somewhere between the disciplines of sculpture and painting, the piece registers as a mass but also as a graphic. Loopy, spotted patterns flow over manifold surfaces, simultaneously dissolving the mass and re-establishing it. Transparent zones allow people to view deep inside the object, their gaze pulled into involutions in interior surfaces. They can see the inside of the mass-painting.

Rose in Miami Beach, Florida by bluarch

Article source: bluarch

Rosé Restaurant offers an upbeat dining experience on the South Beach strip in Miami, Florida.

Rosé was designed using a conceptual framework that acknowledges and indulges in both the glamour and the vibrancy of the 1960’s by paying homage to the lifestyle of the celebrities of the time… As icons Bianca and Mick Jagger, exemplified the glamour of the time, and were observed for their cutting edge style and flavor, designer Emilio Pucci, was at the cutting edge of fashion. Known for his geometric prints in a kaleidoscope of colors, he seemed an appropriate symbol from which to draw the interior architecture of the space.

Houseal Lavigne Associates in Chicago, Illinois by inFORM Studio

Saturday, September 17th, 2011

Article source: inFORM Studio

The renovation of an eleventh floor suite in the 1926 Art Deco Metropolitan Building, located in the heart of the Chicago theater district, provided a unique opportunity for a young and progressive planning firm to increase their profile within the city of Chicago. The original space, layered with aging ceiling tile and threadbare carpet, quickly developed into an extensive dematerialization exercise. A nervous and wary building landlord observed progress as the current building standards were set aside and the existing finishes were stripped away revealing the clarity and beauty of the original architecture.

Lamar Advertising Headquarters in Baton Rouge, Louisiana by Eskew+Dumez+Ripple

Thursday, September 15th, 2011

Article source: Eskew+Dumez+Ripple

This new corporate headquarters for a local advertising agency is a reaction against the standard issue office environment. People require interaction in today’s workplace as they go to work to collaborate, to brainstorm, to do research, to do a range of activities they don’t necessarily think of as “work” in the traditional sense of the word. Much of what we observe in creative environments is a more informal interaction in settings not typical or traditional, such as chance meetings in corridors or conversations around the coffee pot.

Our design is structured to reinforce that culture of openness. To accomplish this, we have radically altered the internal configuration of a 1970’s era data center while leaving the exterior essentially unchanged.

Dekko Café is a restaurant/café in the heart of Astoria [Queens, NY]. Designed for Chef Eric Hara [Chef at the Oak Room at the Plaza Hotel], this venue offers casual dining through a contemporary American menu with influences from Mediterranean, French, and Asian cuisines. The openness of the venue to the street and its expansive frameless, operable window systems [they fold totally to show simple wall openings] are at the origin of the name Dekko, which is the British idiom for “look”.

A New School Vision in Cleveland, Ohio by ShortList_0 Design Group (designed using Autodesk Revit)

Thursday, September 15th, 2011

Article source: Bill Caplan

Proposed for Cleveland Ohio’s new Campus International School (CIS), this unique world of learning emerges from below street level, clad in triple-pane glass and solar panels. With an open classroom plan situated on the continuous spiral of wedge shaped platforms, traditional floor planes are eliminated, an outside-the-box experience to inspire learning and participation at all ages. Each platform elevates one step around a central atrium, This ADA compliant spiral commences at street level, from which the Elementary School winds down 18ft (5.5m) to the Physical Education platform, and up 42ft (12.8m) from street level for the Middle and High Schools. With an inviting arc of exterior steps, the CIS relates to the Cleveland State University Payne Avenue campus and to the Cleveland community via a bridge to the 18th Street arrival area.

The southwest elevation, with its integrated photovoltaics, emerges from a surface below street level
