Technological Park in Rome, Italy by Archimeccanica

Friday, March 3rd, 2017

Article source: Archimeccanica

The project of the Technological Park, connected with the National Deposit for nuclear waste, is born from the idea to transform the host territory into a highly attractive area with a great technological significance, characterized by a high-quality architecture and city planning. The intervention is planned to integrate itself into the existing context of the ecosystem and the landscape, and to contribute to the requalification and the socio-economic development of the territory. The district of the park (an area of 40 hectares) is characterized by two main systems: the system of the constructed (primary and secondary urbanisation, constructed volumes, buildings, practicability, parking lots, open areas, paths, squares, power station to produce biogas) and the system of the open spaces (ecosystem of agricultural matrix, energetic plantations, tree-lined rows and basin for phytopurification). The two systems are in a dialogue with each other and integrate themselves both from a schematic and formal and a functional point of view. The composite model based on a circular form is applied in diverse scales: it refers both to the individual building and to the entire establishment. The circumference represents the permeable limit that allows the Technological Park to interact with the surroundings, through exchanges of energy and matter, like a cellular membrane. The cycle of water, energy and waste are fundamental references for developing the relation between park and surrounding territory and for developing its design within the space.

La Finca House in Madrid, Spain by Ramón Esteve Estudio

Friday, March 3rd, 2017

Article source: Ramón Esteve Estudio 

This house is located in a residential area of the mountains of Madrid, where the vegetation is so lush that it becomes very important. The plot borders a lake that the house opens to. The presence of some ancient holm oaks spread over the plot generates the location and shape of the dwelling. Tus the design process is thoroughly bound to the place. The building sets back to respect the largest trees, thus giving them a leading role. The access to the house is dominated by the largest holm oak. It arranges the entrance, welcomes the visitor and gives the house a stately presence. Two other oaks generate a roundabout that organises the access by car.

Industrial Loft II in São Paulo, Brazil by Diego Revollo Arquitetura

Thursday, March 2nd, 2017

Article source: Diego Revollo Arquitetura

This 100 m2 Loft with structure and apparent installations is located in the noble neighborhood of Morumbi, in São Paulo.

Although the aesthetic appeal of New York sheds converted into housing in the 1970s is the main justification for the male audience in explaining their desire for this style of property, Diego Revollo, who is knowledgeable about this repertoire and with some other lofts in his portfolio, knows that this profile prioritizes good materials and functionality.

House of Memory in Milan, Italy by baukuh

Thursday, March 2nd, 2017

Article source: baukuh

The relationship between memory and the House of Memory is not one of simple translation. Contemporary Milan does not possess a fixed, entirely shared memory that is ready to be carved in stone. Rather than considering the House of Memory as an expression of a shared memory, it would be better to consider it as a tool for discussing the different elements that coexist within the collective memory of the city.
