Article source: COOP HIMMELB(L)AU 

The Customer Information Centre and Event Forum “Haus des Brotes” (“House of Bread) for the company Backaldrin in Asten consists of two elements: a box shaped plinth building with foyer and event rooms plus the “Wunderkammer des Brotes”, a two storey freeform exhibition area floating on top. The chosen materials augment the contrast of these two elements: The square base building shows a cast-in-place concrete façade while the rounded wood structure of the museum is clad with stainless steel shingles.

EL MOLINO CULTURAL FACTORY in SANTA FÉ, ARGENTINA by Anna Prats MC Arq

Friday, March 25th, 2016

Article source: Anna Prats MC Arq

The Franchino mill stands as a metaphor waiting to become habitat, to recover its dimension, to be inhabited to say its words.

The word is mill; meaning use to grind, to pulverise, to turn the heavy things into light ones, to destroy the whole in order to achieve subtlety. It is something used to change the matter into a different thing, the flour of language, a way of naming us.

MOUNTAIN HOUSE in Pernink, Czech Republic by FAM Architekti (Feilden+Mawson Prague)

Friday, March 25th, 2016

Article source: FAM Architekti (Feilden+Mawson Prague)

The house is located 820 metres above sea level in the village of Pernink in a valley which is defined by a wild water stream. The prevailing western winds are tackled with a narrow gable end of the building. The house represents a hybrid typology of a small residential retreat and a guest house with facilities for skiing and nature hiking. The form of the house is largely defined by topography and the orientation towards views of surrounding woodland landscape. The external walls are made of 490 mm thick superinsulated rendered clay blocks which are also used for the main loadbearing wall. A sense of cave like protection against climate is supported by the journey from the entrance lobby to the upper floor living space which winds itself twice through this thick internal wall. The hierarchy of various internal ceiling heights is reflected through the exterior building form.

8X Tower in Vancouver, Canada by GBL Architects

Friday, March 25th, 2016

Article source: GBL Architects

The site is located at the western corner of Richards and Helmcken Street in downtown Vancouver’s Yaletown neighborhood – positioned at the convergence of three surrounding contextual zones. EMERY BARNES PARK flanks the western edge of the site, providing a large public green space. The URBAN GRID of Helmcken and Richards streets front the southern and eastern edges of the site, distinguished by the neighboring eight storey heritage Brookland Court. On a larger scale, the surrounding YALETOWN SKYLINE provides a variety of architectural styles and residential tower expressions. Establishing a building form and character that appropriately responds to all three of these unique contexts is the foundation of the proposed tower’s conceptual design.
