Campagneplein ‘Sky’, Twente University in Enschede, Netherlands by arons en gelauff architecten

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

Article source: arons en gelauff architecten

These two student dormitories – a courtyard building in the forest and a high-rise building with a climbing wall – stand on the campus of Enschede University in the East of the Netherlands. Thanks to a functional mix of housing, study and leisure and the arrangement of the buildings as solitaires in the landscape, the university compound from the 1950’s is one of the few real campuses in the Netherlands.

LAS ARENAS in Barcelona, Spain by Alonso Balaguer and Associated Architects

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

Article source:  Alonso Balaguer and Associated Architects

In spite of the fact that the former bullring, in disuse since 1989 and with a neo-mudéjar style, didn’t actually have high architectural value, it was clear that, being poised in such an impressive location for more than a century, this site was really in the minds of every citizen, and its symbolic value lead to a suitable preservation. That’s why the architectural answer, already from the first outlines, was orientated towards its maintenance as a second skin of the new building. Nevertheless, such preservation met great technical complexity: first, an evident physical deterioration; second, a strange height, four meters above the nearby streets. The technical effort was worth it, in the end to present a strong, atypical cylindrical form.

Jose Vasconcelos Public Library in Mexico City, Mexico by Pascal Arquitectos

Tuesday, May 13th, 2014

Article source: Pascal Arquitectos

Why build a library today? seems absurd, it would be more logical to build a museum for books.

This would be like a mausoleum, a masterpiece of our last president who in a patron’s act wanted to be remembered and transcend through its materiality.His intentions were to mimic what was done with the construction of the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao; to trigger the real estate recovery of the zone by creating added value to de adjacent land.

HOTEL OHLA ***** in Via Laietana nº49, Barcelona, Spain by Alonso y Balaguer

Tuesday, May 13th, 2014

Article source: Alonso y Balaguer

The building of Heribert Salas’ (1926 – 2011) house in Via Laietana 49, Barcelona in 1926 could never be considered a finished project and the clash of what was then considered a modern building within the weave of Ciutat Vella left wounds that have taken over 80
years to heal.

Topology of Resilience

On November 9, 2013 the devastating Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines, causing more than 5,000 deaths and destroying the homes and cities of millions. Natural disasters due to climate change have become extremely commonplace all over the world. We can’t do much to stop them, but as architects we can help design and build stronger and more resilient buildings to withstand them. As part of a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) by OOAc in support of the Typhoon Haiyan victims, the objective of this project is to generate a design concept for a typhoon-resilient school to be implemented in the affected area of the Philippines, where sadly over 4,500 schools have been destroyed by the massive storm.

House in Frontenex by Charles Pictet architecte FAS SIA

Tuesday, May 13th, 2014

Article source: Charles Pictet architecte FAS SIA

The subject of the project is an old 18th century manor with several valuable buildings, including an orangery built in 1816. The orangery is an integral element of the project and contains part of the living space. The entire manor has an orthogonal design, with the one exception of the orangery, with its diagonal alignment towards the south-west. The volume of the new building behind it mediates between the two geometries.
