For the Techtextil ‘Living in Space’ exhibition UNStudio and MDT-tex have created Prototype II, a modular shelter which envisions how we might one day live on the moon or on Mars.

T4 House in HàNội, ViệtNam by Landmak Architecture

Tuesday, June 13th, 2017

Article source: Landmak Architecture 

T4 HOUSE is a house located in the same massively constructed villas with the typical design. But to the landlord it’s a “timeline” with many ups and downs after more than a decade living there.

When they moved to a new house, instead of selling this house, they decided to renovate it for rent. This was a way to help this house both have people living and be operated to keep it from degrading, but to them (the landlord) it’s kept as a memory.

The place

Costa Esmeralda is a private venture on the dunes of the coast of Buenos Aires, 390 km from the city of Buenos Aires. This is a recent development with a young acacia and pine trees afforestation with a few consolidated forest sectors.

The lot to intervene is located in a dune with a gentle slope to the street and a greater slope towards the bottom. This area also has an abundance of trees of young maritime pines. So that, if the vegetation is preserved, anything built in the rest of the lot will be exposed to intense sun and coastal winds.

The Lattice Pavilion by jantzen studio

Tuesday, June 13th, 2017

Article source: jantzen studio

The Lattice Pavilion is a small prefabricated, modular, moveable, functional art structure designed to provide a special place in which to escape from the norm.

The base support frame is an eight-foot cube, with ten lattice-covered panels that fold out from the support cube frame, and are attached back to it, in order to form the final shape of the pavilion. Five of these panels are folded again at the center point and secured to the support frame. The support frame and the lattice-covered panels are mounted onto a floor, which is elevated above the ground on four support legs that require little or no foundation, depending on the site-specific needs.
