Intellectual Property Office Headquarter in Beijing, China by KUAN Architects [UCD]

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2015

Article source: KUAN Architects [UCD]

This project is located at the Beijing TBD, in the northern district of the city, at the crossing of the North-South axis of the Badaling Expressway and the East-West axis of the TBD.

The site is divided into five parcels on both side of the TBD’s main landscape axis. The site is peculiar in its irregular quadrilateral shape, while all other blocks along the sides of the axis are rectangular grid. While the frequent approach would be balancing a regular site with complex architectural forms, we choose to use simple and concise shapes to balance the irregular site and use buildings to enclose a square plaza in the center. In this way, we also achieved the planning principle of reconciliating with the regularly gridded urban texture along the TBD’s East-West axis.

9 Frames Hall in Ljubljana, Slovenia by SVET VMES Architects

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2015

Article source: SVET VMES Architects 

The design concept for renovation of the entrance hall of Poljane Grammar School (established in 1889) in Ljubljana, Slovenia, was to highlight the existing qualities of the historical shell – preserved wall and ceiling stucco and elaborate columns, placed in a strict symmetrical axis. A small square in front of the building, the entrance hall and the central staircase are all connected by this important path that has been poorly manipulated by various spatial reconstructions in the past.

SPEECH CLINIC in Lisbon, Portugal by MMV ARQUITECTO

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2015

Article source: MMV ARQUITECTO

The clinic is understood as a place of learning, concentration, where the sound and image are mandatory elements.

Capturing the rhythm of words, the pause between them, noise and silence, full and emptiness, is the main idea of the project. From these assumptions and the analysis of the space, a landscape ceiling that vibrates like the cadency of the rhythms of nature is drawn. This mechanism is balanced with the simplicity and strength of the whole. The filter lets the air through and sets the sound, the mass contains both. The sensations of depth, transparency, opacity and flow are given by the subtle organization of materials.

LE DIAMANT THEATER in Québec, Canada by Saucier + Perrotte architectes in collaboration with STGM architects

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2015

Article source: Saucier + Perrotte architectes 

Our approach is based on the notions of landscape and geology that characterize the built environment of the historic district of Old Québec. Nearby, the strong presence of the Porte Saint-Jean and the defensive system that constitutes the Fortifications of the city of Québec reiterates the dual nature of these buildings that are both architecture and  landscape. Though the surrounding buildings belong to a variety of styles and eras, their  common denominator is based on a strong relationship with the mineral, and an  architectural composition in horizontal strata. This reading of the city as stacked stratum  transcends time so that we find it in all the surrounding buildings. Thus, there is a timeless horizontal frame that serves as an anchor for the realization of a contemporary project in continuity with the old fabric of the city.
