Rochester School in Chía, Colombia by Daniel Bonilla Arquitectos

Sunday, June 4th, 2017

Article source: Daniel Bonilla Arquitectos

With approximately 16000m² of buildings and 21000m² of exteriors and landscape design, the Rochester School’s Master Plan aimed for a strategy which reflected its own concept of academic community. Thus, as a premise, the HUBS (grouping system) appeared, looking for an educational model that integrate teachers and students disregarding grades and therefore fading out the traditional hierarchy of school formation.

House in Hanareyama, Japan by Kidosaki Architects Studio

Friday, June 2nd, 2017

Article source: Kidosaki Architects Studio  

The surrounding of the site located at the foot of the Hanareyama, overlooking the landmark of the region in north orientation, shows the spread of the trees grown up in years. We tried to produce an architecture with the dignified presence, which has both free spirited and subtle quality- by placing a one-storied house maintaining a low building profile that dynamically extends in east and west orientation with sharply extending eaves on the building for exaggerating the horizontality against the surrounding landscape with bold yet delicate vertical quality.

Saint Father Brochero Chapel in Cordoba, Argentina by Federico Ochoa

Friday, June 2nd, 2017

Article source: Federico Ochoa

How to build a chapel in honor of a saint without falling into literal reminiscences?

This was the starting point and the biggest challenge of designing a chapel for the first Argentine saint. The most logical solution was, “designing with Brocherian spirit, folowing the values ​​and the intentions of the priest but without falling in morphologic repetitions”.

Studio in the Woods in Madrid, Spain by selgascano

Friday, June 2nd, 2017

Article source: selgascano

What is being sought with this studio is quite simple: work under the trees. To do so, we need a roof that is as transparent as possible. Also, at the same time, we need to isolate the desk zone from direct sunlight. Hence the transparent northern part. The part that is covered with a bent sheet of 20mm colourless plexiglass on the north side. The south side, where the desks are, has to be closed in much more, but not completely, so there is double sheet of fibreglass and polyester in its natural colour on the south side, with translucent insulation in the middle. All three form a 110 mm thick sandwich.
