King Abdullah Financial District Metro Station in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia by Zaha Hadid Architects

Saturday, May 18th, 2013

Article source: Zaha Hadid Architects

The King Abdullah Financial District (KAFD) Metro Station will serve as a key interchange on the new Riyadh Metro network for Line 1, as well as the terminus of Line 4 (for passengers to the airport) and Line 6. The local monorail can also be accessed from the station via a skybridge. With six platforms over four public floors and two levels of underground car parking, the KAFD Metro Station will be integrated within the urban context of the financial district, responding to the functional requirements of a multimodal transport centre and the district’s future vision. The project extends beyond the simple station typology to emphasize the building’s importance as a dynamic, multi-functional public space; not only an intermediate place perceived through quick transitions, but also a dramatic public space for the city.

It’s like when you grow up in a diverse ethnic surrounding where yours ” differences ” are not accepted and understood very well. In that situation, we should to celebrate “the differences” between people and like that today, with all social, economic and technological development, we must thinking about structure which will reflect the present, but without endangering “spirit” of the existing natural and built environment – “genius loci”.

Beethoven Building Entrance and Lobby Area in Barcelona, Spain by Archit3ctum

Thursday, May 16th, 2013

Article source: Archit3ctum

The renovation of lobby and common areas of Beethoven building Barcelona was a particular challenger for our studio because we want to give a very new image to the interior areas, with the idea of a contemporary and technological place. To carry out our task, we focus on creating a neutral space where the use of materials with high resistance and metallic colors could mark the perimeter and indicate the flow of the course.

Rua, Restaurant/Bar in Porto, Portugal by Proj3ct and Pluggo

Thursday, May 16th, 2013

Article source: Proj3ct and Pluggo

Located on the blooming nightlife district of Oporto’s downtown, RUA occupies the ground floor of an old building facing a narrow yet busy street. The vacant space matched in many ways the traditional construction  of Oporto old city center: narrow lots with high openings and ceilings, the extensive use of granite stone and local painted ceramic tiles (“azulejo”) on the façades, the appropriation of small and cozy patios. The relation towards the street was quite effective and dominant, as it could be enhanced towards the existing patio.
