New Contemporary Art Museum in Buenos Aires, Argentina by Michael Arellanes II

Thursday, July 5th, 2012

Article source: Michael Arellanes II

In the current proposal for a Contemporary Museum of Art in Buenos Aires, the inception is based on synergetic plays of volumes and interlink-interlacing manifolds of tectonic forms and panels that create a dynamic fluxion of mass, surfaces and lines. The articulations involved relay on formal masses in an arrangement or in a cohesive group that perform more than the sum of its parts. The museum is multi-layered and composed of radiant volumes and pieces which converge in a poly-operational, structural, and sensuous array of tectonics. The effect of multi-generative forms grouped and working together as a performativewhole is a diverse set of fluid and crystallized components strategically placed for an outcome of a dynamic structure, which valiancy plays a role in the visual and experiential impact of the viewer.

Working with a modestsized parcel, the trick in the scheme was to minimize the footprint.

Ceramics of Italy by Sergio Mannino Studio

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012

Article source: Mannino Studio

The secret garden is one of Italy’s most characteristic places. Enclosed by four walls and protected from the chaos of the town, these gardens were literally private paradises for the use and enjoyment of rich aristocrats or, more often, for monks and nuns.

The booth for Ceramics of Italy is intended to be a little private paradise where people can rest from the chaos of the show and enjoy the best Italian food and coffee.

V4 House in Sao Paulo, Brazil by Studio mk27

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012

Article source: Studio mk27

With each new project contemporary architecture is forced to optimize spaces and use the maximum of each square meter of the site.  V4 House is a rare anti-example.   Its occupation of the land is very far from the maximum coefficient.  Laws allow for much larger constructions. The solution adopted, however, dialogues with the dimension of the site, formulating an adequate relation between the scale of the construction and the site.

Kinetic Pergola by Brian Lee

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012

Article source: Brian Lee

Blurring the boundaries between architecture and furniture this work dissolves the abstract relationship between architectural form and the body into one of a more direct experiential correlation, questioning architecture as object and proposing an architecture where form is the result of action and use.

Hokkaido, the northernmost island of the Japanese archipelago, equivalent in size to Ireland, is nearly two hours’ flight north of Tokyo. Winter is the dominant season there and it arrives early, with autumn colour arriving in early September, the landscape snow covered by the end of October, and no sign of a thaw until late April. At its coldest the temperature plummets to minus twenty-five degrees centigrade.
