Dome of Visions 3.0 in Aarhus, Denmark by Atelier Kristoffer Tejlgaard

Friday, May 26th, 2017

Article source: Atelier Kristoffer Tejlgaard 

The architect behind Dome of Visions, Kristoffer Tejlgaard, sees sustainability in construction as an absolutely necessary and worthwhile entrance to his subject.

To his students, the former Pritzker award winner, Glenn Murcutt, formulated a very elegant approach to architecture: “Touch the Earth Lightly with your housing footprint”, and with that he did not only consider a building built on a few pillars. He asks the question: Where does the building materials come from? What damage has been done, for example, in the land area where the materials are extracted? How will the construction be returned to the ground again, or can it be recycled, recycled or assembled in a way so that it can be separated, changed and used in new contexts?

Article source: STEINMETZDEMEYER architects and urban planners

Next to the elementary school in the Pfaffenthal neighborhood, rue Vauban, the “Centre du Mouvement Écologique” (Ecological Center), known as the “MECO”, was in dilapidated structures, worth of no interest, neither as built heritage, nor as architectural component of urban fabric.

That old structure, having serious problems with stability, moisture and useful surface capacity, has been replaced by a new construction, exemplary for its answers to concerns and questions raised by sustainable development.

Dragon Court Village in Aichi, Japan by Eureka

Thursday, May 25th, 2017

Article source: Eureka 

Within our fieldwork in Asian cities and villages, conducted against a backdrop of increased threats from severe weather and global warming, we sometimes encounter with adaptable housing cultures that border against natural disasters; ecological and customary architectural behaviors that have likened to elements of the natural environment; and methods to help maintain and continue such things. Today, with the rapid urbanization of Southeast Asia, especially from China to the Indochina, the act of observing native and traditional architectures and villages is synonymous with observing their very own destruction and acceptance. The life of barely scraping by, sometimes becoming subject to unlawfully dense surroundings, is very much reliant on the ability to tolerate ambiguity, semitransparent and gradational special qualities, and the architecture`s redundant and updating nature. In this scheme, such qualities were pulled into a tangible plan.

Américas 1500 in Guadalajara, Mexico by Sordo Madaleno Arquitectos

Thursday, May 25th, 2017

Article source: Sordo Madaleno Arquitectos

This mixed-use project for offices and a hotel is located in the heart of the city of Guadalajara. Its formal, emphatic, and unified volumetrics express its iconic nature.

The formal concept arises from the mixed-use character it will acquire, consisting of four stacked geometric volumes. Two of these are slightly offset, and exactly aligned on the rear face. These gestures of displacement are designed to interrupt the robustness of the building and express an elegant sense of movement. The lowest volume houses the hotel, and the three volumes above it are allocated to office use by three different corporations, each occupying one volume in its entirety.

House among the olive grove in Kidron, Israel by Henkin Irit & Shavit Zohar

Thursday, May 25th, 2017

Article source: Henkin Irit & Shavit Zohar

Kidron village consists of large agricultural estates, is situated on a plain turf in which the size of the plots dictates large distances between the various residential houses.

Olive vineyards are the main component on the land on which the Aloni family house was designed and built. The idea was to design a “connector” between the front and the back vineyards. In order to do so, the house was placed in morphological correspondence to the olive trees, with the olive rows parallel and perpendicular to the front of the house together.
