Garden of Love and Fire in Almere, Netherlands by Studio Daniel Libeskind

Saturday, April 21st, 2012

Article source: Studio Daniel Libeskind

This quiet meditation garden completed in 1992 is located in the ‘town without a history’ of Almere, The Netherlands.

The garden consists of an observation platform, three narrow water canals, and a fourth dry channel on which an oblong volume is resting.  These lines direct themselves toward three particular locations: Salamanca, Paris, and Almere. They signify a world location in which love (Juan de la Cruz) and fire (Paul Celan) intersect in Almere’s future. The inscribed ciphers refer to the encounter between Juan de la Cruz and Paul Celan in the newly reclaimed land. They become readable at precisely those times when the materiality of forms dissolves into oblivion.

Ph4 in Tijuana, México by T38 studio + Pablo Casals-Aguirre

Friday, April 20th, 2012

Article source: T38 studio + Pablo Casals-Aguirre

Located in Tijuana, México, Ph4 house’s main objective is to create a balance between privacy and openness, the project was mainly developed from two constraints. The first one is that the house will be inhabited by an elderly couple, so most of the program is on the first floor, a long glass and concrete box which breaks in the transition between the public and private space. Superimposed is a solid volume which twists itself in the opposite direction as the one below, ending in a 7 meter cantilever across the garden. A concrete staircase leads up to the projecting first floor, which houses a guest bedroom and study.

IDOM Headquarters in Bilbao, Spain by ACXT Arquitectos

Friday, April 20th, 2012

Article source: ACXT Arquitectos

The new IDOM Group offices are located in the old bonded warehouse in the Deusto canal, in Bilbao. It has 14,400m2 destined for offices, research and development areas such as the white-room and the prototypes workshop, and social spaces.

Outwardly, and from the first idea, the design has developed from the occupation manner of the roof, which was filled with goods that were stored in the building. An imaginary green carpet has been designed as if simply placed over the roof, hiding all air conditioning units which in most office buildings are visible, with the resulting sound and visual impact. Certain topography arises as a result of the adaptation of the “carpet” on the machines. Folds and surfaces that resemble a hill on which to stroll in the moments of relaxation and conversation with peers for this is the floor on which the rest-area of the building is planned. The flat part of the “carpet” is natural grass. For maintenance and weight reasons, the part that covers machinery, the folded one, is artificial turf.

Clini´c T in Lisboa, Portugal by Pedra Silva Architects

Friday, April 20th, 2012

Article source: Pedra Silva Architects

Why do healthcare spaces have to be cold spaces?

This has been the underlying question since the beginning of our proposal. In fact there are several activities that go on in a clinical space, some regarding actual medical treatments and others related with social and reception areas. Although one might consider the treatment areas to be central in a dental clinic, this project aims to reinforce the social and humane side of healthcare facilities, by proposing two distinct and opposite environments: the clinic space and the social space. The first is a rigorous, hygienic and professional space, mainly in white materials, that aspires to provide confidence and serenity to the patient. The second is a space for meeting, relaxing and comfort, a way to distance the patient from the clinical mindset.
