La Branche in Heverlee, Belgium by DMOA Architecten

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

Article source: DMOA Architecten 

The project is a peaceful combination of old and new. The new part is a sober black canvas looking at the garden from behind the old walls. In several places remnant parts of the old walls are kept as garden elements, an aspect that strengthens the atmosphere. When you walk through the house you feel continuously that you are in a nexus between old and new.

New Jiangwan Ecological Exhibition Center in Shanghai, China by Pu Miao Architecture

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

Article source: Pu Miao Architecture

On the north edge of Shanghai city, an isolated wetland of about 10 hectares has remained undisturbed for several decades. Now it becomes a nature reserve and a part of the park system of New Jiangwan City, a new town developed around the wetland. Since the fragile ecological system can only afford guided tours of small groups, it is necessary to establish an exhibition observation center at its west side for the public to use. In the architect’s long-term plan, two elevated walkways will radiate from the Center into the reserve so the entire area will be accessible to the public.
