The CityDeck in Green Bay, Wisconsin by Stoss Landscape Urbanism

Saturday, October 15th, 2011

Article source: Stoss Landscape Urbanism

The CityDeck is the heart of a multi-phase redevelopment project along Green Bay’s Fox River. The project aims to allow for significantly increased access to the river and to diversify social and ecological life along it.

EXISTING CONDITIONS + CHALLENGES

The site is a 2-acre strip of land, typically measuring 50 to 60 feet wide, that runs along the edge of the Fox River in downtown Green Bay. It is about one-quarter-mile in length and is situated between two bridges that cross the river. At the project’s beginning, adjacent parcels were empty, abandoned (a large yellow warehouse), or in use as parking lots. Nearby buildings turned their back on the riverfront. Unsurprisingly, there was little social or civic life here, and no reason to visit; the elevated walk along existing bulkhead walls prevented any direct access down to the river—as well as up to the city from boats.

Article source: Martin holub architects

An addition to a house Martin Holub Architects designed 15 years ago (1997) on a wooded hilltop in the Hudson Valey, New York. At the time, we had no idea that we had ever be asked to design an addition to that house. Still because of the strong geometry of the original house, the addition had, practically, designed itself.

Tuesday, October 4th, 2011

Article source: CCS Architecture

This project was designed for a San Francisco couple with six children – with ages ranging from high school to college. The property is located inland from the beach town of Aptos, California in the Santa Cruz Mountains, near the city of Santa Cruz.  The 20-acre site has ocean and mountain views and is about five miles inland from the Pacific Ocean. The family desired a setting that would be casual and rustic, and that would incorporate sustainable features to minimize the home’s carbon footprint. Diverse activities were part of the design program, including; entertaining, cooking, tanning, swimming, archery, horseshoes, gardening, and wood-splitting.

Tsujita La in Los Angeles, California by SWeeT co.,ltd

Friday, September 30th, 2011

Article source: SWeeT co.,ltd

I put 25000 of wooden sticks, which was shaped like drum stick on the ceiling. In order to increase a reality of clouds, I calculate the focal length between eye line and wooden sticks and use that length for the stick length. Also I made difference on the distance between stick each other so that to make a stereoscopic effect to wooden cloud.
