Children’s land in Umal Nasser village, The Gaza strip by ARCò -architettura e cooperazione and MCA- Mario Cucinella Architects

Tuesday, January 10th, 2017

Article source: ARCò -architettura e cooperazione

The idea of building the Um al Nasser children’s center “The Children’s Land” in the Gaza Strip started in 2011 as a response to a call from the local Bedouin community to the Vento di Terra NGO, asking for access to quality health and educational services for children and women of their village.

Difficult areas such as the Gaza Strip are characterized by a systematic lack of urban planning. The decision to build a school complex employing  bioclimatic architecture criteria was driven by the need to use readily available and cheap local resources.

Riviera Grand Hotel in Lecce, Italy by Tomas Ghisellini Architetti

Tuesday, January 10th, 2017

Article source: Tomas Ghisellini Architetti 

After many years of complete abandonment, the Riviera Grand Hotel, a historical hotel complex in southern Italy Salento area, comes to a new life after a challenging renovation and a radical interior redesign.

The property, located along one of the most extraordinary coast stretch of Ionian Salento, just close to the sea, is a sort of village made by thin coastal “towers” connected at the base by a plate of services and common areas. The towers, looking at the nearby gulf of Gallipoli, accomodate rooms offering stunning panoramic views over Mediterranean Sea.

K5 Urban Apartments in Oslo, Norway by Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter AS

Sunday, January 8th, 2017

Article source: Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter AS

The project is sited in an urban block that remains a rare example of the intimate blend of housing and small-scale industry typical of the nineteenth century. The new structure was designed with special appreciation of these environs. The apartments have differing housing typologies of simplex and duplex units, and they benefit from a study of the interaction between indoor and outdoor spaces. The building’s design is characterized by a distinct architectonic form with functional solutions, thoughtful details, and contemporary overall expression.

Havre 77 ReUrbano in Colonia Juárez, Mexico City by Francisco Pardo Arquitecto + Amezcua

Sunday, January 8th, 2017

Article source: Francisco Pardo Arquitecto

As its name — which reflects its exact address — would suggest, Havre 77 by Francisco Pardo Arquitecto in collaboration with architect Julio Amezcua is an urban re-densification and reactivation project that sinks its roots deeply into Mexico City’s urban fabric. Standing on the south side of the emblematic Paseo de la Reforma, the intervention is part of a wider regeneration program covering Colonia Juárez. Today a bustling central district, the area used to be one of the city’s most exclusive suburbs back in the early 1900’s, before it was hit by a revolutionary war and two destructive earthquakes in 1957 and 1985, which led to a rent freeze for over 50 years.

The State Museum of Egyptian Art and The University of Film and Television in Munich, Germany by Peter Böhm Architekten

Sunday, January 8th, 2017

Article source: Peter Böhm Architekten

The extraordinary urban development with the large free square in front of the Old Pinakothek made it possible to close this square with a generous, quiet building in the south, which takes up approximately the proportion of the Old Pinakothek, vis-à-vis in the north, where the new building lies. In accordance with the lateral emphasis of the Old Pinakothek with its space-limiting risalits and avenue, is the entrance to the University of Film and Television located in the east of the new building and in the west the entrance to the State Museum of Egyptian Art, which is buried like an archaeological excavation underneath the green forecourt.
