Zhuting Church in Zhuzhou, China by Pu Miao Architecture

Friday, January 24th, 2014

Article source: Pu Miao Architecture

Located next to a mountain path, this rural church responds to its narrow site with a zigzag spatial sequence that generates the much needed transitional space from the profane to the sacred. Inside, a unique sacred space is created through pairing the chapel with an outdoor space which contains the altar.

HOUSES SANTA ISABEL in Lisbon, Portugal by Ricardo Bak Gordon

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

Article source: Ricardo Bak Gordon

Perhaps what’s most important in this project is the desire to refer to the city that exists within the city – the places inside the city, whose matrix anchored in street, square and block it originated. There are many such places in Lisbon – more or less old, deeper or more open to the sky, but always very impenetrable.

Jin-gu-yuan Mixed-use Complex in Kunshan, China by Pu Miao Architecture

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

Article source: Pu Miao Architecture

The 19th-century Chinese cities did not have much consciously planned public space, especially the nodal types such as square and park. People simply used the streets, or whatever left by the traffic flow. The urban renewals brought by the Economic Reform since 1978 have changed Chinese cities completely. However, the renewals have focused on improving the cities’ economic infrastructure. The “non-productive” public space, especially the part serving average residents, has not received proportional attention.  So as the first problem, Chinese cities today need more public space quantitatively. But the limited public space already supplied by the urban renewals has also exhibited three quality issues.

Drum Tower Nanjing Hospital in Nanjing, China by Lemanarc SA

1. The creation of human-scale building through the unification of architecture and landscape

Nanjing Drum Tower Hospital, founded by Canadian Missionary Dr. Macklin, is located in the downtown center of Nanjing city. It is one of the most renowned hospitals in China.The earlier expansions of the hospital was driven by the development of modern medical technology as well as the increasing municipal population. Despite the remarkable scales, most of these early expansions are hardly more than simple and urgent addition and extension of existing function to meet the rapidly increasing need for medical service. As a result, the functional layout of many floors are not well organized and streamlined for the operation of the hospital as a whole. For instance, the existing outpatient department is on the east side of Zhongshan Rd, connected with the main buildings of the hospital, which is on the west side, only through a narrow underground passageway, which makes extra inconvenience to both patients and staffs.

Article source: PARDOTAPIAArchitects

A museum should empower the evocative capacity of the memory. In this purpose, the museum is a sum of parts where each has its own value and its own characteristics.

The museum becomes a platform to make visible what was invisible until now.
