Villa Nacka in Sweden by Gustav Appell Arkitektkontor

Thursday, May 21st, 2015

Article source: Gustav Appell Arkitektkontor

This private house is shaped as simple volumes contrasting the dramatic topography and the leafy greenery of the surroundings. The development restrictions of the site and the beautiful, tall oak trees did not allow for any standardized solutions. Instead the limitations became the starting point for the initial sketches. The result is a white L-shaped wooden house framing a secluded courtyard. The geometry of the house makes the most of the surrounding views, maximizes the development rights and creates a terrace high among the branches of the oak-trees.

SMART FLOATING FARMS by FORWARD THINKING ARCHITECTURE

Thursday, May 21st, 2015

Article source: FORWARD THINKING ARCHITECTURE 

The SFF is a Smart Offshore Floating Farming system situated off the coast on an open sea. The SFF is configured  as a modular-expandable Multi-Layer Floating Farming system which combines Solar energy, Hydroponics-green growing and  Aquaculture (Fish) . City Farming /Urban agriculture is great, but with the tremendous influx of world population to urban areas would it be enough to ensure the amount of food in cities? Why not take advantage of the water space close to cities to transform them into a productive tissue? ( water which makes up about 71% of the Earth’s surface, while the other 29% consists of continents and islands) Does an offshore Smart floating farm makes sense? We truly believe so, since many of  the densest areas/cities are located close to big bodies of water and because nowadays  many nations are heavily dependent on imports and international markets for their food (causing vulnerability). In example, a 2013 study found that  in 2000, some 950 million people—16 percent of the world’s population at the time—were using international trade to meet their food needs, according an article related to the Food Trade and Self-sufficiency report.

DENSE CITY in Paris, France by Fresh Architectures

Thursday, May 21st, 2015

Article source: Fresh Architectures 

Our project has been designed as a unique object, both imposing and securing in comparison with the scale of the neighboring buildings. Its geometry makes it both streamlined and easy to locate. The same material has been chosen to cover the roof and the façades, which gives the building a monolithic and distinctive look. It has been treated in order to be a part of the existing urban environment. As an example, the tiles generate an interesting surface finish by producing both a mineral and monolithic effect. In addition, the glazed surface finish diminishes the deposits from the air pollution. The façades are designed to clean themselves naturally with the rain.

Towada Community Plaza in Japan by Kengo Kuma & Associates

Wednesday, May 20th, 2015

Article source:  Kengo Kuma & Associates

This wooden building was constructed as the city’s community center for people to gather. We repeated the roofs for the façade so that it could merge into the neighboring townscape of small houses. On the exterior wall, wainscot panels are applied with spaces in between, and it expresses a warm and friendly face to the street of the land to the north. The street in front of the building actually extends into the interior, and is given the name “Michi-no-Hiroba (plaza for the street),” around which a children’s playroom, cooking studio and tatami room are arranged.
