Article source: 1O DESIGN

lO DESIGN was commissioned as Lead Design Architect to design a new base jump tower, providing a platform for extreme sports with elevated views of the surrounding city skyline.

Bayside in Toronto, Canada by ODA New York

Tuesday, March 15th, 2016

Article source: ODA New York 

The practice of orienting a home to the path of the sun is as old as civilization itself, and in nature, significantly predates it.  Just as plants and flowers orient themselves to the sun through phototaxis, the newest building designed by ODA New York, appears to be doing the same.

Victory Heights Primary School in Dubai, UAE by R+D Studio

Tuesday, March 15th, 2016

Article source: R+D Studio

Located inside the Sports City of Dubai, Victory Heights is a primary school spread over an area of 1.5 acres. The client’s brief envisioned the school to be a space that is conducive to a child’s evolutionary development – almost like a trigger where he/she is driven to act, explore, discover, invent and most importantly, be inquisitive. The design followed through by manifesting itself into an organic entity, almost like a little children’s village. Rather than exemplifying the typology of an academic quadrangle, the school functions as an arrangement of clusters that are strung together around different ‘Pods’ of interaction.The complex includes a primary school wing, a Kindergarten wing, and accompanying recreational and administration areas. Through this broader classification into two separate wings, a central courtyard emerges, where the children of different age groups can converge, interact and play with each other.

PLATE in Niigata, Japan by TAKUYAHOSOKAI

Tuesday, March 15th, 2016

Article source: TAKUYAHOSOKAI

Isolated within a seemingly endless stretch of flat, idyllic countryside, a small but dense forest emerges into view.  Occupying 4500 square metres, the ancient copse has been preserved and nurtured in its rural setting. Nestled within this unique environment the project acts as small museum.  It consists of a market selling locally farmed produce and goods, a restaurant serving dishes using only locally grown ingredients (based on the Chisan-Chisho concept of local production for local consumption), and an event space hosting exhibitions and concerts for the community.

CaSa Tu in Santa Cruz De Tenerife, Spain by equipo olivares arquitectos

Sunday, March 13th, 2016

Article source: equipo olivares arquitectos

The client spent a long time searching for a top floor apartment to live in; as soon as he found this property, he was in no doubt and he purchased it. The current dwelling was converted from a dated 4 bed flat to a bright and airy space, creating a continuity between interior and exterior, benefiting from the spacious terrace and providing the most possible space to the remaining area. The exterior areas can be used all the year on thanks to good weather of Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

Office and Data Processing Center Building in Milan, Italy by Giussaniarch – Roberto Giussani / Andrea Balestrero

Sunday, March 13th, 2016

Article source: Giussaniarch – Roberto Giussani / Andrea Balestrero

The building, which houses offices and a data processing center, aims to complete the building curtain of a block situated at the intersection of three urban axes. Its minimum volumetric articulation sets a moment of \”silence\” and abstraction against the linguistic overlapping of the context. The uniformity of prospects is obtained thanks to an innovative double membrane filtering façade system, provided with vertical sheets in silk-screen printed glass, which automatically pivot according to the incidence of sunlight to optimise internal lighting and heating conditions.
