Urban Soul in Bonn, Germany by CROSS Architecture

Friday, October 21st, 2016

Article source: CROSS Architecture

Development of a district

Historic buildings in front of Bonn’s main station were demolished as part of the city railway restructuring in the 1970s. The redevelopment of this area, which has only been implemented in part since, still represents a sensitive break in the city fabric between the main station and the old town; as an inner-city problem zone called “Bonner Loch”, it still shapes the first impressions of people arriving by train. After more than 45 years, the “Urban Soul” project now provides the first opportunity to activate the unused potentials of the location with an approach inspired by the spirit of the “genius loci”.

20TH CENTURY ART MUSEUM in Berlin, Germany by Rafi Segal A+U Landscape Architect: Susannah Drake (Dlandstudio)

Thursday, October 20th, 2016

Article source: Rafi Segal A+U Landscape Architect: Susannah Drake (Dlandstudio)

Competition entry for Berlin’s Museum of 20th Century Art to be located in the Kulturforum district. The project proposes a series of pavilions, public spaces and gardens connected and unified by a greenhouse structure. Serving both a symbolic and functional purpose, our project conceives this public building as a space that one could see through and into, creating a new kind of public space where 20th Century Art’s fascination with the abstract is met with the elements of nature and the figures of the city.

Penthouse Ecopark in Hung Yen, Vietnam by i.house Architecture & Construction

Thursday, October 20th, 2016

Article source: i.house Architecture & Construction

Optimizing the home owner’s aesthetic personality and bringing more green and most relaxing space are the criteria set out for the architects. Based on a current land-site that is cramped and limited in size (90sqm/floor), the architects have used a variety of solutions from creating floor-through space, omitting unnecessary rooms/space, fully maximizing the beautiful views of the urban township and laying unique green parts (garden stands).

For the Penthouse apartment, a contemporary design style was applied in combination with the use of several selected, classic industrial-style furnitures.
