INOTERA HAEDQUARTERS in Taipei, Taiwan by tec DESIGN STUDIO

Thursday, June 19th, 2014

Article source: tec DESIGN STUDIO

“Modern day works of architecture look like computer dreams, almost as if the machine were capable of designing a world of self-suffi cient forms on its own, without people being involved. Architecture without people or automatic writing in space, places with no need to actually be inhabited. Equivalent architecture that is self-generated, just like those generators
of random poems, which, given a certain number of words, create combinations forming haiku, which are often actually quite pleasant; likewise, generative music has been around for quite a while already, with a computer taking a certain number of “scenes” to develop a sequence of music lasting minutes or even hours.

Mixcoac House in Mexico City, Mexico by FRENTE arquitectura & PRODUCTORA

Thursday, June 19th, 2014

Article source: FRENTE arquitectura & PRODUCTORA 

The project consists in demolish an old house and built a new one with very tight budget, preserving only the street-front façade.

Because of the chaotic context of the lot, the main idea was to turn the house inward to a widespread space. To achieve this, the ground floor was divided lengthwise placing the construction on the left side, taking the fullest possible advantage of the depth of the lot for the garden.

Thursday, June 19th, 2014

Article source: JagerJanssen architecten BNA

The intersection of a planned green strip and an existing avenue provide an architectural opportunity for this a two-storey dwelling. The first floor appears to be cumbersome and heavy materialised: dark bricks with continuous seams result in an abstract rugged character. The second floor will be a wooden shaft: lighter in colour, weight and design.
