The Snow Apartement in Zhangjiakou, Beijing by penda

Friday, June 6th, 2014

Article source: penda

The Snow Apartement by penda is located in Zhangjiakou, which is a famous skiing region 160km North of Beijing and offers a weekend-getaway for the client and his friends.

The design of the apartment is inspired by a melting snowfield in spring, when nature slowly revives from  winter and offers a contrast of cold and warm, white and colored. This atmosphere was translated into architecture by hand-plastered, white shells, which cover walls and the ceiling and creat a seamless space, which guides visitors naturally through the apartement. The curves of the interior responds in a very direct way to the outside landscape of mountains and valleys.

Cultural Centre Casal Balaguer in Palma de Mallorca, Spain by Flores Prats Arquitectos & Duch-Pizá, Palma

Friday, June 6th, 2014

Article source: Flores Prats Arquitectos & Duch-Pizá, Palma

Casal Balaguer is a palace of the historic center of Palma, a flood over the centuries family home, starting in 1300, then in 1500 and finally in 1700, which now loses its household to be a public building, a cultural center for the entire city. To value the times contained in the building, without taking physical distance with the historical stages that have shaped its qualities, allows us to act without departing from him: if observation do not distinguish times, the action must not have distances.

COASTAL WORK KATWIJK in Netherlands by OKRA

Friday, June 6th, 2014

Article source: OKRA

The field of coastal defence and waterworks is the epitome of Dutch expertise. Where the famous Delta Works consist of movable dams and locks, the majority of the Dutch coastline is protected by dunes against water. ‘Rijkswaterstaat’, the department responsible for all water related infrastructure within the ministry of infrastructure and environment, is constantly working to improve the coastal defence in the Netherlands. In recent decades it works to strengthen some of the ‘weak links’ along the coast. In many places, dunes and dikes are being strengthened to ensure safety inland for the next 50 years.
