Friday, February 13th, 2015

Article source: JC Bonham

We where asked to conceive a building that contained a public civic center as well as emergency residences.

The facility is located in the midpoint between a school area and a public service zone. The building attempts to occupy the maximum surface possible in order to create a inner public square, since the surrounding neighborhoods are lacking of one.

The Italian word “Baita” refers to a place that allows climbers to have a break and regain their strength. This café located in Vanke Lake Songhua Resort is appropriately denominated as “Baita Italia” due to its remarkable place at the right beginning of the town center of the resort facing the mountain and the ski tracks, and its role in the cultural communication between Vanke and Italy.

Fuensanta House in Ciudad Real, Spain by MUKA ARQUITECTURA

Friday, February 13th, 2015

Article source: MUKA ARQUITECTURA

On an urban context, in the center of a row-house type block, we were commissioned to build a single house. The plot is located in the southern area of Ciudad Real, in the last growth ring of the city that has not been developed due to the economic crisis of recent years. Our proposal is the first one to emerge in this area from an urban void without any context. There are not surrounding houses, typological references or architectural legacy that could serve at some point as an architectural tool in the design of the house.

Villa Escargot in Chiba, Japan by Takeshi Hirobe Architects

Friday, February 13th, 2015

Article source: Takeshi Hirobe Architects

How to “wall in” a space for people? I become more conscious about this question when designing a building in an environment that faces nature, rather than one in a residential area. Therefore, since my first visit to the site, I had been thinking that the building itself should stand robustly and independently.

Article source: Henning Larsen Architects

With its triangular shape, Campus Kolding of University of Southern Denmark will create a significant new landmark in Kolding.

As the new learning centre of excellence, Kolding Campus will house the courses in communications, design, culture and languages of the University of Southern Denmark. The building is located on the Grønborg grounds in the centre of Kolding close to the harbour, station and scenic attraction of the river. Kolding Campus will create a new central plaza by Kolding River and will thereby form a close interaction with the other educational institutions of the town, Kolding Design School and International Business College Kolding. The shape and facades of the building create a powerful dialogue between the inner life of the building and the outside observer.
