Wednesday, April 29th, 2015

Article source: gmp Architekten von Gerkan, Marg und Partner 

“What is Vietnamese building culture?” This question is asked in a country the architecture of which was for many years defined by the former colonial powers, France and Japan, and by the separation of the country into North and South Vietnam with the two capitals, Hanoi and Saigon.

House with one wall in Zurich, Switzerland by Christian Kerez Zürich AG

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

Article source: Christian Kerez Zürich AG 

A two-family house is a building with a wall that divides it into two halves. The dividing wall is the only wall in the entire house. It cannot be crossed anywhere. It has to fulfill functions conventionally assigned to several architectural elements. It is the load bearing structure and the installation core, its folds define all of the rooms and it determines how the view from the entirely glazed building is divided between the two living units. The simplicity of the concept, the reduction of the architecture to a single element, creates substantial dependence and, in turn, makes the building very complex. It is only through that dependence that the wall acquires a compelling and cogent character although, in itself, it can follow any chosen course.

R4 in Tokyo, Japan by Florian Busch Architects

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

Article source: Florian Busch Architects 

The office, perhaps more than any other single building type of the present day, carries the true notions of the ideologies it is born in.

The R4 building addresses the question how scale and location inform an inner-city office type, and how exactly this contextual necessity might in fact perfectly reflect an environment of unforced, informal, perhaps even natural work efficiency.

PIC Pavillion in Barcelona, Spain by Cadaval & Solà-Morales

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

Article source: Cadaval & Solà-Morales

As part of the celebrations of the 25th anniversary of the International Prize of Catalonia, the pavilion was conceived as a visual catalog of the various stakeholders involved in its long history. The original request, due to reasons of schedule and budget, was to design an exhibition at one of the smaller rooms of the Palau Robert; the will of the exhibition is to give visibility and recognition to the award. The project comes from the conviction that the small budget allocated can actually build a large and notorious space in a central location of the Palau . The challenge is to consolidate and qualify an illuminated and waterproof space, with the minimum possible installation.

Minä perhonen koti in Japan by TORAFU ARCHITECTS

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

Article source: TORAFU ARCHITECTS

minä perhonen is a fashion brand and we performed the interior design for their new directly-managed shop minä perhonen koti. The shop mainly showcasing household goods is found on the 1st floor of the Shonan T-SITE complex, where many tenants are located around a Tsutaya book store. The name of the store “koti”, meaning house in Finnish, derives from the fact that it handles everyday life items, such as cushions and tableware. Thus, deliverables included a space to carefully present small objects and showcase product line-ups with color variations.
