Article source: Hyunjoon Yoo Architects

Main Concept
Rationality and Sensibility, the both terms are the base that establishes human culture or intelligence.
Human’s rationality is revealed through philosophy, mathematics and science whereas the sensibility is freely expressed in our lives in the form of art, music, literature, etc.
The both terms can be interpreted into architectural language, where the rationality is defined as a Library and the sensibility is depicted as a Fine Arts Museum.

This is the complex building with clinic on the first floor and the doctor’s dwelling place on the second floor. With the tree planting that bring better feeling to patients in the inner courtyard, they can be viewed from the lobby and entrance of the clinic. Furthermore, as the trees can also be seen from outside of the building through the deck, people walking by should also be able to feel the season’s change.

Pink Flamingo in Paris, France by Stephane Maupin

Wednesday, July 10th, 2013

Article source: Stephane Maupin 

The new building takes place on the east Side of Paris, a new area build over rail tracks. All the difficulty was to make a construction without any foundation. The project is installed above big concrete slabs overcoming trains in motion. So vertical columns are like pink flamingo’s legs. They are installed on 27 small spring boxes connecting the ground floor. Those boxes prevent all trains vibrations to students’ cells.

PAPPAS HEADQUARTERS in SALZBURG, AUSTRIA by Kadawittfeldarchitektur

PAPPAS HEADQUARTERS/ MERCEDES SALZBURG
BRIEF Car dealership with a garage and showroom | ADDED VALUE In order to arrange the spatial program on this limited lot, all the functions are piled on top of one another, linked by navigable ramps and united under one roof. The vertical reorganization of a car dealership typology provides many advantages over conventional horizontally-organized car dealerships: via the ramps, the client can drive directly to either the garage or the salesroom where the cars are presented to the outside without reflective glass.

PALARNIA club&restaurant by WAMHOUSE

Wednesday, July 10th, 2013

Article source: WAMHOUSE 

Palarnia” is the seventh and May (2013) design in the collection called “XII”, entirely designed by Karina Wiciak.

Palarnia  (in Polish means “Smoking room” ) is a place decorated primarily by smoke. It adds mystery to the interiors by making them more theatrical. It can also act as an effective screen for people looking for intimacy in the billows of white puff. The smoke can be compared to night clouds cast over the sky, mysterious fog illuminated with the moonlight or can be simply seen as cigarette smoke by those who miss the times when smoking in pubs was not prohibited… Free interpretations abound here and the setting may provide screenplay writers with food for thought.
