On Sand in Sweden by Wingardhs

Friday, July 14th, 2017

Article source: Wingardhs

An endless view is a hymn for the eye. The sound of the horizon moves your mind. A solitude site, with the sea in front and lush valleys in the back, is always the right place for a house. If the site is empty, you should build there if you can. If the site is built, you should by the house. If it does not fit your need, rebuild it.

MM HOUSE in Palma de Mallorca, Spain by OHLAB / oliver hernaiz architecture lab

Friday, July 14th, 2017

Article source: OHLAB / oliver hernaiz architecture lab 

This house looks for the maximum energy efficiency adapting itself to the program, the solar orientation, the views and the slope of the terrain.

The project optimizes the program grouping it in four boxes –kitchen, living-dinning, main bedroom and guest bedrooms- which can be used together or independently. Each box is placed carefully on the ground and rotates on its axis with precision to find the best views and orientation for their use. The bedrooms face the East, the garden and the Bellver Castle; the living and dinning room face South-east, the sea and the garden; the kitchen faces South and the vegetable garden; and in the attic over the living room, the terrace looks towards the view of the sea and its big window over the living room faces South allowing the winter sun to warm the main space of the house while the eaves of the roof protects from the summer sun.

The War Memorial in New Delhi, India by Design Forum International

Wednesday, July 12th, 2017

Article source: Design Forum International 

The architectural construct of the national war memorial calls for the visual grandeur befitting a national monument and enmesh seamlessly with the magnificent India gate and the traditional Indian chattri. The visual grammar, vocabulary and material palette must be drawn entirely from lutyens’ architectural style; it should be likeAnother Avatar of the Lutyens’ Order’. Equally, the experience intends to invoke in the visitor, the spirit of patriotism, allowing him to pause by creating a controlled visual field and guiding him/her to slowly transition towards a silent, solemn experience of respect and gratitude towards the brave soldiers who put ‘the nation before self’.
