A living heart for a modernist Campus

Erasmus University Rotterdam has opened the new public heart of its Woudestein campus. The project can be seen as a benchmark for the way grim and gloomy ’60s and ’70s institutional areas can be sparked to life. A new semi-sunken garage has been integrated with a new public space design and pond. Together with a new student pavilion, they mark the realization of the first phase of a unique and ambitious revitalization master plan.  The master plan was designed by the collaborating Dutch firms Juurlink [+] Geluk and jvantspijker architects.

Innovative school concept becomes realityin Amsterdam East

The school of the 21st century needs to satisfy a long list of demands, some of which seem at first to be contradictory. It needs to have character and function as an anchoring point within the neighbourhood. It must be multifunctional, flexible, energy-efficient, sustainable, affordable, and possible to build within just a few months. Impossible? No. In fact, it was recently completed: the Integraal Kindcentrum (Integral Child Centre, IKC) Zeeburgereiland in Amsterdam, designed by Studioninedots. The building was opened on 29 November.

Single-family home Teplice by 3+1 architekti

Sunday, December 8th, 2013

Article source: 3+1 architekti

Small piece of land owned by a builder that we were dealing with was kind of \”left\” in a rectangular pattern of local development.

The immediate proximity of large villas from the first half of the 20th century left psychologically and physically little space for wild experiments in architectural design.
