New Istanbul International Financial Center in Istanbul, Turkey by HOK

Friday, March 15th, 2013

Article source: HOK 

US$2.6 billion project is integral to Turkey’s plan to make its economy one of the world’s 10 largest by 2023

HOK developed the master plan for the Istanbul International Financial Center (IIFC) in Turkey, which is being built on a 170-acre site on the city’s Asian side. The Turkish government’s goal for the landmark IIFC project is to establish Istanbul as a global center for finance. The IIFC will house the head offices of the country financial market governing bodies, state-owned and private banks, and related businesses. It will include approximately 45 million square feet of office, residential, retail, conference, hotel and park space. With 13.5 million people, Istanbul has the world’s second-largest population behind only Shanghai. A February 2013 article in The Economist ranked Turkey’s economy as the world’s 17th-largest.

W-House in Amsterdam, The Netherlands by VMX Architects BV

Friday, March 15th, 2013

Article source: VMX Architects BV

The Walta-Elmers family commissioned VMX Architects to design their house on ‘Kleine Rieteiland’, one of the islands of IJburg. The client wanted a spacious, open house with plenty of light. The plot measures 8 by 30 metres. By studying several models, the concept of ‘woonlandschap’ (living-landscape) was chosen. The ground floor, containing the living and kitchen, in a split level typology, has the possibility to completely open to the outside and thereby create a partly covered living-landscape of 8 by 30 metres.

Extension of the IUFM School in Lyon, France by Atelier de la Passerelle

Thursday, March 14th, 2013

Article source: Atelier de la Passerelle

The IUFM (Institut Universitaire de Formation des Maîtres – Primary School Teacher Training Institute) is located in the former Ecole Normale pour Garçons, a building dating from 1885 in a large property called Clos Fayet in the Croix-Rousse district of Lyon. This building has all the architectural features of the typical late 19th century to mid-20th century French school. It has been inopportunely encroached upon by recent constructions.

House Van Leeuwen in Meppel, The Netherlands by JagerJanssen Architecten BNA

Thursday, March 14th, 2013

Article source: JagerJanssen Architecten BNA

The design on the east side of  Havixhorst has several specializations received. This is also the facade that the first and lasting impression on the unsuspecting careless or even architecture interested passerby will leave. Listed façade has been given a subtle nod which lays the foundation for further morphological development of the property as we will see later. For specification of the entrance is locally a bite out of the volume taken as a welcoming gesture. Moreover, here you are protected against all kinds of meteorological events.

The railway station Hameln was initiated in 1872. After a devastating fire in 1925, it was rebuilt and its structure as well as its access was fundamentally altered.The intervention after the wartime destruction in 1945 and several modifications into the 1980s conducted to fully unrecognizable conditions of the interior structure.Entire elements of the building were run-down and did not feature any functions at all. Some parts of the building were not connecting to the central circulation.

Autodesk’s New Office in Milan, Italy by Goring & Straja Studio

Thursday, March 14th, 2013

Article source: Goring & Straja Studio

The exterior of the project in dialogue with the interior.
The architectural context has influenced the design of interior spaces in two ways: positively and negatively; the building it is not exactly an office building, quite the opposite, because there are no requirements such as flexibility and efficiency. So, we found in the site unusual features in 99% of the offices. I mean double-height spaces, or plan without large rectangular areas and depth, that could suggest us some different lay out.

Mosquito Coast Factory in Campbon, France by Tolila+Gilliland

Thursday, March 14th, 2013

Article source: Tolila+Gilliland

This is not a shed. This is an island. The question posed by the client/artist was the possibility of a cultural island in an industrial site, the concrete fabrication of a utopic site for living, research and production. The architectural response is the result of a research towards a vocabulary of elements which could give meaning to this ambition.

Bratislava Culenova New City Centre in Slovakia by Zaha Hadid Architects

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

Article source: Zaha Hadid Architects

The design is based on a dynamic field strategy which organizes the new city centre’s program along a gradient of circular and elliptical patterns. A fluid field emerges from the underlying matrix in a series of larger tower extrusions towards the site’s perimeter and intermediate scale pavilion-like structures surrounding the cultural plaza adjacent to an existing decommissioned power station.
