Spordtgebouw in Dordrecht, Netherlands by NL Architects

Saturday, June 7th, 2014

Article source: NL Architects 

Spordtgebouw is a combined sports facility for three separate schools in the so-called ‘Leerpark’. Traditionally, individual schools have their individual gymnasiums. But by combining the sports halls into one compound the quality of sports education can be improved. A higher degree of collectivity of course enhances complexity but sharing also creates added value. It will for instance be possible to differentiate the halls and apply specific functions like a Dojo. During the day the building is dedicated to the schools, but in the evening and weekends it is open to everybody. As such public money will be used publicly.

House with Podocarpus in Osaka, Japan by MIFUNE DESIGN STUDIO

Saturday, June 7th, 2014

Article source: MIFUNE DESIGN STUDIO

There has been a symbolic podocarpus tree in the premises since the old days. It used to be a little away from the human space and was not seen from the room in a daily life. For this new construction due to deterioration, the tree was left where it was to strengthen the relation between human and the tree by building a new position and new traffic line. By creating minimum surrounding with new round fence for the tree, form and existence of the tree are maximized.

Nagaoka City Hall “Aore” in Niigata, Japan by Kengo Kuma and Associates

Saturday, June 7th, 2014

Article source: Kengo Kuma and Associates

With the growth of cities and their scale, public buildings of 20th Century were likely to be driven away to the suburbs, often as isolated concrete boxes in parking lots. We wanted to reverse this flow with Nagaoka Aore. We moved the city hall back to the center of the town and revived a real “heart of town,” which is located in a walking distance from anywhere, working along with people’s everyday life.
