Airport Traffic Control Tower in Turkey by RMJM Group

Tuesday, March 15th, 2016

Article source: RMJM Group

Bird – Spirit of the Tower

An air traffic control tower is the absolute symbol of aviation industry, of traveling, of welcoming and of wishing good bye. The highest building in the airport is as important as a first impression as any. It signals arrival or departure, safety and a watch over the complicated and definitely not earthly experience of flying. In other words although not a gate in shape it is undoubtedly the metaphor of one.

Bala Line House in Ontario, Canada by Williamson Chong Architects

Tuesday, March 15th, 2016

Article source: Williamson Chong Architects

Within Toronto’s network of well-preserved ravines and valleys, historic rail lines are occasionally found nestled unused on steep, wooded slopes between the upper plateau of residential fabric and the river valley habitats down below. A de-commissioned rail spur – once used for an industry-focused early 20th-century city – has evolved into a common passage for hikers and neighbours as it connects the local ravine pathway system to newly developed community areas such as the weekly farmers market at the revitalized Don Valley Brickworks. Upslope, a rare accessible lot lining the western edge of the ravine, some 60 feet above the Bala Line rail path, is the site for a single-family dwelling that engages this alternative connection to the city infrastructure.

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.
