Article source: ROSSETTI

To entice both Seattle Sounders + Seahawks fans into the stadium’s Pro Shop, ROSSETTI expanded the store size by 250%, creating an immersive shopping environment for both teams. Each team’s merchandise is showcased on either side of the entrance through crystal clear, butt-glazed walls. The folding entrance wall opens on game days exposing a central flex space that is merchandised for the team playing that day.

Agora Szeged in Szeged, Hungary by BAHCS architects

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

Article source: BAHCS architects

The architectural programme of the Agora project – a center for the promotion of local innovation – is manifested in a building unifying four different functions, three of which are linked to science and research: Computer-science history exhibition, Informatorium (demonstration space of the latest information technology) and a demonstration laboratory presenting experiments in biophysics. Our client decided to add the youth center of the city to the programme as well in order to introduce the younger generation as the main target group to the world of science and technology.

“Terma” (Thermal) by Ramon Esteve

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

Article source: Ramon Esteve

The space “Terma” (Thermal) is inspired by natural thermal springs created by volcanic activity. A serene and hedonistic atmosphere is evoked by pure and architectural forms.

The space is created by using large, prismatic volumes. Two large walls which divide and give focus to the space use a wood mosaic and backlit stone which illuminates the area with soft lighting. The edges of the space are divided into vertical panels of stone with different depths and light emerges from between the panels.

Casa OVal in Jalisco, México by Elías Rizo Arquitectos

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

Article source: Elías Rizo Arquitectos

The commission for casa Oval came from a young family with clearly defined needs and aspirations. This project presented a challenge that has become increasingly prevalent among Mexican architects: to build a house in a cloistered residential community that often imposes arbitrary, traditionalist aesthetic restrictions on all construction. Privacy and space efficiency were the two driving concerns for the project. The house envelope needed to afford sufficient visual privacy from the street outside, while also providing enough porosity to allow generous amounts of natural light into the house.

The meeting centre offers accommodation to various community activities. The complex of buildings consists of successive constructions, ranging from a 19th century school building and an old town hall to an industrial construction from the 1990s. The dilapidated storage building makes place for enlargement of the meeting hall.

Invisible Hotel/ Transparent City in Athens, Greece by blp architects

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

Article source: blp architects

Invisibility is essentially a question of transparency.

In 1963 Colin Rowe in his article Transparency: Literal and Phenomenal set the framework: \”At the beginning of any inquiry into transparency, a basic distinction must perhaps be established. Transparency may be an inherent quality of substance- as in a wire mesh or glass curtain wall, or it may be an inherent quality of organization\”. As an organization quality \”transparency means a simultaneous perception of different spatial locations\”.
