Philips Business Innovation Centre FiftyTwoDegrees in Nijmegen, Netherlands by Mecanoo architecten b.v.

Wednesday, July 20th, 2016

Article source: Mecanoo architecten b.v.

Knowledge centre

At the start of the new millennium, Philips Semiconductors (now NXP) wanted to expand its current production and research site in Nijmegen by creating a new knowledge centre for the development of semiconductors for the electronics industry. The existing production site is sealed off and fenced in for security reasons. The new knowledge centre, where technology, science, culture, work, living and leisure come together, fosters chance encounters and collaboration with diverse parties. The name of the complex, FiftyTwoDegrees, refers to the site’s 52nd degree of latitude, which like the ambition of the initiators, spans the entire world.

Article source: Ubalt architectes

In this typical 17th Century flat located in the heart of the Marais, three working axes have structured the work :

– There will be an illusion of a larger surface by visually lengthening the flat.

– The space will be transformed while keeping the character of the old…

Nature Concert Hall 2016 in Zalenieki manor, Latvia by DJA (Didzis Jaunzems Architecture)

Tuesday, July 19th, 2016

Article source: DJA (Didzis Jaunzems Architecture)

Nature Concert Hall 2016 is designed as an art installation made from 10 000 paper bats. Levitating cloud with gradient density over the musicians serves also as a screen for video and light projections. To achieve maximum lightness and levitation effect art installation is suspended in 3 paired electricity columns far away each from another. The volume of the cloud is referring to flocking bird and bat created dynamic geometries that can be found in nature. Black & white video and light projections, specially composed music are continuing the interpretation of dark world of the bat.

The Drift House in Northern Canada by The Open Workshop

Tuesday, July 19th, 2016

Article source: THE OPEN WORKSHOP

With insufficient core populations to support public structures, the typology of dwelling has attained the highest level of refinement within the Arctic’s unique climate. Pre-WWII indigenous Inuit Housing Types had embedded connections to the local landscape, its orientation, materials and fabrication, while embracing the nomadic Inuit lifestyle. With zero ecological footprint, these temporal dwellings employed opportunities from the landscape and atmosphere to form a complex shelter that negotiated thermal performance, local materials, soft construction techniques, program and cultural values.

LAHO House in Hofit, Israel by Brahma-Architects

Tuesday, July 19th, 2016

Article source: Brahma-Architects

At the onset of this project, when we asked the clients what type of house they were interested in, they replied “a simple house, like a lifeguard tower”.

We designed a one story house spread across a corner lot. Two layers of exposed concrete comprise floor and ceiling with white stucco walls enveloping the house. Sliding the upper plane forward allowed for light penetration at the core of the house as well as air circulation. Between the two layers lies a rectangular tube, separating while connecting inside form out. This unique space houses an entry corridor and art studio.
