Hayes Residence in Virginia by Travis Price Architects

Sunday, March 17th, 2013

Article source: Travis Price Architects

The home is a path through the West Va hills. The path splits and meanders to know where… to know where  nothing is left but self and nature.  The cloak of  nature and soul are equally in harmony punctured by growth and rebirth all afloat.  Swaying trees and swirling winds scoop clouds of water to feed the split trees.   A rock opens as a stairway and leaves paths to take in or out.

Article source: Payette

Successful innovation districts are not comprehensively designed from the outset; they mature over time, taking advantage of emerging local talent pools and evolving business clusters of excellence. Nexus, a plan to create an innovation district in Midtown Detroit focuses on proximity, talent growth, culture, and urban density – qualities intensely destabilized in the wake of the city’s economic decline.

Devoto House in Villa Devoto, Argentina by Andres Remy Arquitectos

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

Article source: Andres Remy Arquitectos

This project was a great challenge for the Studio, considering that it was going to take part of the urban structure. The lot of 18 x24 metersis located in Devoto. It is between two existing buildings that threatens the project when the problem of isolation and view. For this reason this project is leaning towards its neighbor, creating an introspective posture that creates the views from the inside rather than from the outside. An architecture that generated its own views. In this manner the Project was able to solve the basis of isolation and views from the garden. This was a constant worry from the clients since the beginning of the Project.
