Shining Surface in Milan, Italy by Park Associati

Saturday, June 15th, 2013

Article source: Park Associati

Park Associati architects work on ‘human scale’ architecture. Issues such as context, environment, routes, landscapes and views are in their everyday vocabulary. Their buildings relate with the landscapes with such a lightness and harmony to make them looking perfectly in place, as if they had always been there. Yet they are very recognizable signs, they have contemporary concepts, shapes and surfaces, made with advanced techniques and materials. But this is precisely the key: a historical knowledge and a contemporary vision. In Park’s works, we can feel suggestions from the Modern Movement, lessons from certain Milan architectures and condominiums of the Fifties and Sixties, to the purest Mies van der Rohe of the Twenties, up to Antonio da Sangallo and Michelangelo of Palazzo Farnese. All these inspirations are assimilated, forgotten, and re-invented.

102 House in Gliwice, Poland by ZALEWSKI ARCHITECTURE GROUP

Saturday, June 15th, 2013

Article source: ZALEWSKI ARCHITECTURE GROUP

Every house should have some secret. This house has more than one. The originality of this home has grown from dreams of its owners. The owners – a pair of 35-year-olds with a limited (but not modest) budget and a cloud of dreams. They are fans … she is keen on  architecture of glass and a person longing for the sun the south and the peace of the night … he is keen on World War II, raw concrete and metal. Opposites attract. They demanded not only a modern house but also a unique emotional experience – a house that would be “their home” – at first sight. It’s a challenge.

Centro de Surf de Somo in Cantabria, Spain by Javier Romero Soto. Architect

Friday, June 14th, 2013

Article source:  Javier Romero Soto. Architect

The Ribamontán al Mar Surf Center is located in the seafront of Somo, a small town in near Santander. It’s essential for this new facility to be located as close as possible to the beach (it would be unthinkable that surfers have to move to change, shower or store the surfboards to some urban area of the town); therefore, in the absence of municipal property plot with the required characteristics, we chose to place the building on the seafront. The venue lacks environmental value; one of the goals of the project is in fact to recover this underused space, situated just 20 meters away from the sealine.

Piezoscape in Staten Island, New York by Barker Freeman Design Office Architects pllc

Thursday, June 13th, 2013

Article source: Barker Freeman Design Office Architects pllc

This proposal for the Fresh Kills landscape in Staten Island, New York engages visitors and the environment into generating energy using piezoelectricity, which is the conversion of mechanical movement into electricity. Energy from wind, sound vibration, and human movement can collectively be harvested from the movement of natural piezoelectric materials embedded in walkable surfaces and bendable wind-capturing stalks and streamers.

Three architectural moves are key in turning this former hotel ballroom into an integrated set of spaces. A portion of the ground floor concrete slab is cut away, a bridge spanned across it, and a cafe ‘trailer’ inserted into the front facade. The front of the trailer pushes through to the street, defining the entrance and helping to project the identity of the gallery.

VetiVertical City in Shanghai, China by Eugenio Aglietti

Thursday, June 13th, 2013

Article source: Eugenio Aglietti

Shanghai is one of the Chinese cities with the highest levels of CO2 emissions per capita and held the lead as the biggest carbon dioxide emitter between 2004 and 2007. Another problem that affects the city relates with the quality of water, which is severely contaminated: about 80% of the water comes from the Huangpu river, one of the most polluted rivers in the world.
