Wednesday, May 25th, 2016

Article source: Che Fu Chang Architects + Sinotech Engineering Consultant Inc. 

It has been 20 years since the Metro system first established in Taiwan’s capital city, Taipei. As an underground system, the entrance to the station normally appears like a matchbox on the street like cities worldwide, without any opportunity to interact with its environment. When the extension plan revealed, an ambitious new line, which needles the city’s hot attractions carried out by the city’s public transport bureau. A proposed station site in the city’s biggest green space, the Daan Forest Park, creates a great opportunity to introduce a new idea for Metro station design.

Kanoa Tower in Nantes, France by Studio 02 Architectes

Wednesday, May 25th, 2016

Article source: Studio 02 Architectes 

The Kanoa tower is a project that fits into the vast urban development plan for the Island of Nantes.

This is a very understated building, whose shape, worked to the extreme, is the main feature.  To minimize the tower’s impact on the street, it was designed in a “boot” shape and discreetly covered in zinc, which was laid down in shingles to create a scaled effect.

114 Public Housing Units in Barcelona, Spain by Sauquet Arquitectes, Slp

Tuesday, May 24th, 2016

Article source: Sauquet Arquitectes, Slp

The first thing we did was to think about the people, about the future inhabitants. The building had to have more than one hundred rental houses with one or two bedrooms for the elderly.

We thought about how the elderly would contribute to the building’s characteristics. The key was to imagine how they would live in it. We could see them taking care of plants in ceramic pots, and how all these plants  would hang down from the windows and railings like a green cascade. We could also see them sitting in the  sun, enjoying the views and gathering together for a chat, talking to each other across the balconies… This  is how we got the idea of having large south-facing terraces looking out onto the landscape. Moreover,  having the terraces staggered –in a cascade, – would allow us to give a terrace to the highest number of  homes.

Subtracted House in Lima, Peru by Seinfeld Arquitectos

Tuesday, May 24th, 2016

Article source: Seinfeld Arquitectos 

The uprooting from family relationships results being a common condition of comtemporany life, losing affective bonds. Hence, from this project we address the construcction of ways of living not only as social manager, but as a enabler of human connections revealing unexpected relationships that go beyond immediate utility. We want to generate the discovery of new senses, transforming the necessary in desire. Inhabit propitiate new ways of looking, according to Heidegger. “We are as we live in”.

Villa 4.0 in Hilversum, The Netherlands by Mecanoo architecten b.v.

Tuesday, May 24th, 2016

Article source: Mecanoo architecten b.v. 

A simple bungalow dating from 1967 on a hexagonal ground plan had been radically altered and modified through the years. Although this had made the house bigger, it had also become increasingly inward-looking. The expanding wings were steadily enclosing the heart of the house with the hall and living quarters, and direct contact between the house and the magnificent surroundings was largely lost. The original detailing and material form were consistently adhered to during all previous interventions but the result was now thoroughly outmoded and of a poor technical quality.

The house has now been given its fourth look.
