3D Fountain in Zaragoza, Spain by Lumiartecnia Internacional

Friday, March 8th, 2013

Article source: Lumiartecnia Internacional

The first three-dimensional fountain in the world. This state-of-the-art fountain behaves as a three-dimensional water sculpture continually evolving in an attractive and interactive way. This project is a breakthrough in the concept of architectural fountains.

Delicias Station square is defined by consistent lines with the aesthetics of the High Speed train station building, being the water the main protagonist of the proposal. A central space with a reflecting pool offers the possibility of becoming a temporary skating ice rink; water games arising below the pavement energize the space. Bodies of small grass fields rippled by the wind between almond trees and tamaryx bushes define stay spaces near the front of the station.

Friday, March 8th, 2013

Article source: Moussafir Architects

A Southwest suburb of the city of Tours, Joué-le-Tours was upgraded to the status of a town in the 1950s. It was at this point that, together with the town hall and social housing, Joué-le-Tours got its MJC (the Youth and Culture Centre). An initiative of the country’s first Minister of Cultural Affairs, Gaullist and intellectual André Malraux, the MJCs were an important institution in France.

Namhae Cheo-ma House in Gyeongsangnam-do, Korea by JOHO Architecture

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

A rural house romance

Rural houses, or farmhouses are easily seen around countryside. However, these artificial forms are being placed here and there thoughtlessly in Mother Nature.A common stereotyped rural houses around Namhae, Jindo, and Pyeongchang have set a scenery of 20th century’s Korean farm village. One might say, the system of a local constructor also being a designer also being a constructor is extremely economical in terms of building rural houses. However, mother nature we have is too nice to only covered with identically produced rural houses.

Modern Drama by Ginkgo House Architecture

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

Article source: Ginkgo House Architecture

This project began as a more modest kitchen remodel. But the temptation to bring light deeper into the room and maximize dramatic views could not be denied. Half of the roof is pitched to allow for a clerestory band of windows. Other features include a two-sided ribbon fireplace, a 16′ sliding patio door, and a European style kitchen.

16 Social Housing for Granollers Town Hall in Barcelona, Spain by ONL Arquitectura

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

Article source:

The architectural strategy used has been to create a building whose exterior is defined by a language that seeks abstraction through colour, rhythm, and movement: a language that will contrast with the domestic private life of the residents inside. To combine these two concepts moveable panels have been mounted on the façades. By opening or closing them, residents can choose the level of light or privacy they want at any time throughout the year.
