Casa Mariposa in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, Mexico by arqflores / architect Juan Carlos Flores

Thursday, April 14th, 2016

Article source: arqflores / architect Juan Carlos Flores

This is when I began playing with this new language of architecture.  The client requested organic forms for their oceanfront home on the Pacific Coast of Mexico.

These shapes are caressed by the sea air as the sun gently travels its curves.

Antalya Green Hub in Turkey by Alper Derinboğaz, Salon

Thursday, April 14th, 2016

Recently Antalya is under a rapid transformation like many other cities in Turkey. These quick transformations usually aim segregated mediocre urban projects rather than balancing the benefits of different actors. Although there are many possibilities for a city like Antalya with much diverse qualities such as forests, sea, history, tourism and culture most of the renovation projects are enclosed mediocre worlds that rather try to exist within their limited environment.

Thursday, April 14th, 2016

Article source: Studio_GAON

At this time when industrial society changes to cultural era, we started this project to turn on the cultural switch by building a building, just as putting a book in a empty shelf. Driving along Gyeongin Expressway to go through Gajwa Interchange, you will meet Gajwa-dong, a town in Incheon, South Korea. This town took sea in the old days.

Lambeth Palace Road in London, England by Wildstone

Thursday, April 14th, 2016

Article source: Wildstone

A new hybrid advertising space and community garden, designed by Wildstone for client Clear Channel’s premium Storm brand, has transformed a treacherous corner in London into a vibrant community space. The formerly derelict site in Lambeth Palace Conservation Area had remained undeveloped for over twenty years and was eventually hoarded up. Anti-social behaviour was a longstanding issue, prompting Community Safety officers to request that the landowners investigate additional security measures and productive temporary uses for the development site. Innovative structures and urban space designers, Wildstone, have created a scheme to change this crime ridden space by transforming it into a publically open,working community garden, whilstrein stating the site’s original function as an advertising space.

St. Augustine School in Kitsilano, Canada by Acton Ostry Architects Inc.

Thursday, April 14th, 2016

Article source: Acton Ostry Architects Inc.

The Oblates of Mary Immaculate founded St. Augustine School over one hundred years ago, at which time the school shared quarters with St. Augustine Church in a domed, three-storey, brick building located in the Kitsilano neighbourhood of Vancouver. In 1951, the original school was demolished and replaced with what was to be a temporary, single-storey, wood-frame building. Sixty-four years later, a new three-storey, 300 student, 4,200 square metre, red brick-clad school and child care facility that features fifteen classrooms, a learning commons, multipurpose spaces and allowance for a new gymnasium occupies the compact site.

URBAN EROSION – Mixed Use Building by DFG Architetti

Thursday, April 14th, 2016

Article source: DFG Architetti

CONCEPT

The city and the environment erodes and pervades the building volume crossed by people flows, nature, wind and rain, creating a fluid and dynamic space in an enchanting sculptural concrete surface. The city and the environment carves a large urban \”cave\” and a vertical chimney that makes its way to the roof, real architectural cavities through which the anthropic and the natural setting establishes deep vital relationships with the building, creating an organic, symbiotic system. People, wind and trees become the lifeblood of the architecture, which is inextricably linked to the setting.

Article source: paulosantacruz.arquitetos

Located in an historic building in the heart of the city of Porto, this project consisted in the transformation of a room into the author’s architecture office. Although small (55 m2), this premium space, in regards of solar exposition and relationship with its urban surroundings, was able to accommodate all the demands and areas inherent to its new role as a contemporary office.

Bartok park in Arnhem, Netherlands by Buro Harro

Thursday, April 14th, 2016

Article source: Buro Harro

A former wasteland in the centre of Arnhem (Netherlands) is transformed to an iconic park: A flourishing heather landscape with a huge PartyAardvark (an artwork by Florentijn Hofman) lying amidst of it. Together with office D.T.O. we took the initiative to transform this desolate area – due to the economic crisis – to a patch of spectaculair nature in the city. The Bartok Park is a symbol for Arnhem: a city that is uniquely situated on the edge of the Natural Park the Veluwe, but doesn’t seem to take much pride in this fact. The vegetation is transplanted from that Natural Park into the city centre: we brought nature literally to the city.
