New Technologies Training Center in Santiago de Compostela, Spain by Francisco Mangado

Friday, April 11th, 2014

Article source: Francisco Mangado

The proposal for the Center for New Technologies of Santiago de Compostela is based on two essential ideas. The first one springs from the conception of the place and its process of topographic adaptation, and the second entails a sense of efficiency. Efficiency having to do in this case both with the speed in which the project must be executed and with the fact, strictly functional, that the resulting building may need to undergo variations in program over the years.

Espace Culturel Marc Steckar in Paris, France by ARCHICLUB

Friday, April 11th, 2014

Article source: ARCHICLUB

Urban approach . The study site is a vacant lot owned by the city of Bessancourt and located a few hundred meters away from the town hall. Its location is in continuity with its historic downtown. The site is marked on the north by the imposing presence of a church. The urban environment of the study site is very mineral, the stone church is massive and reinforces this homogeneity. The building distribution on the site is diffuse and invites us to propose a singular object, an additional object that can join the existing group.

Tree House by 6a architects

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

Article source: 6a architects

The Tree House was developed in response to the mother of a busy family who in finding herself reliant on a wheelchair was also finding herself increasingly confined to a single room.

Her home is a pair of small grade II listed 1830’s brick weavers cottages, joined together in the 1970’s as part of the GLC homesteading scheme.  The ground floor rooms of the two cottages are on different levels and both a half storey above the garden behind.

AISJ New Aquatics Center in Johannesburg, South Africa by Flansburgh Architects

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

Article source: Flansburgh Architects

Design Challenges:

The challenge was to create an economic covering for a state-of-the-art pool. Johannesburg sits on a plateau known as the “highveld,” 5,000 feet above sea level, with earth rich in iron ore, causing frequent lightning strikes. Although the climate is temperate, night-time temperatures can drop significantly.  The new pool was required to be both covered and heated.
