Sited near a quiet countryside site in Beijing, the Artist Village Gallery consists of a private museum and two private houses. The inspiration of the architecture originates from a Chinese watercolor painting, aiming to develop an environment that blurs architectural boundaries with natural surroundings, resulting in a series of fluid spaces that provide the visitor a unique experience.

The Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne, Australia by Billard Lecce Partnership and Bates Smart

Tuesday, October 9th, 2012

Article source: Billard Lecce Partnership and Bates Smart

The design of Melbourne’s $AUD1 billion Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) is based on ‘state of the art’ ideas developed by the hospital around a family-centred care model that puts children and their parents at the centre of the tertiary level paediatric care facility. Using innovative and evidence-based design principles, the RCH reflects changing healthcare practices, workplace patterns, user expectations, community aspirations and environmental responsibility.

The building’s formal arrangement, as well the internal and external spatial experiences, has been assembled to promote a restorative and healing environment for children and their families.

Binh Duong School in Vietnam by Vo Trong Nghia Architects

Tuesday, October 9th, 2012

Article source: Vo Trong Nghia Architects

Binh Duong, a new city which is 30 minutes away from Ho Chi Minh City, has a typical tropical climate all year round. The site is located in the middle of a flourishing forest with a wide variety of green and fruits, running rampant. This is where folks spending their time under the shade of trees. To pursuit a beautiful life, people are in harmony with the nature, making the border between the inside and the outside ambiguously. From the very first impression of the site, we tried to embed the building into the site by delivering this Vietnam-oriented generous spirit of natural land into the school design, which will eventually have 800 students.
