The Multi-form Building System by Michael Jantzen

Sunday, February 16th, 2014

Article source: Michael Jantzen

The Multi-form Building System is a design study for a prefabricated, modular, kit of parts that can be assembled into many different kinds of curved spaces, in order to accommodate many different needs. The basic components would consist of several different sizes of pre-insulated curved, and flat eco-friendly concrete composite panels. Some of the panels form walls and roofs, and others are used for floors. All of the panels are designed to be bolted together with raceways between them for wiring and plumbing.

PAPYRUS Glasses shop in Seoul, South Korea by Archi@Mosphere

Sunday, February 16th, 2014

Article source: Archi@Mosphere

When buying eyewear, people consider their eyesight along with the design that can best express their image. This shows that an eyewear is a product that fulfills an individual’s need for accurate function and sensibility for beauty. We found that the sales process of an eyewear is quite similar to designing a space due to these factors.

Hillside House in Suzhou, China by Pu Miao Architecture

Saturday, February 15th, 2014

Article source: Pu Miao Architecture

Hillside houses tend to belong to one of the two types, the terraces and the tower. While the tower has a more prominent visual appearance, the stepped profile of the terraces allows residents in the rooms same-level accesses to exterior spaces. This design explores a third type–the combined–that takes advantages from both existing models and minimizes their shortcomings. The new prototype tries to produce a better relationship between indoor and outdoor spaces, recreating the traditional Chinese courtyard space on a hillside site. This is part of the author’s experiment to localize Modern Architecture.
