LA ESTANCIA CHAPEL in Cuernavaca, Mexico by Bunker Arquitectura

Saturday, July 6th, 2013

Article source: Bunker Arquitectura

La Estancia Wedding Gardens were conceived in a traditional Mexican baroque colonial style. When one of Bunker’s associates decided to marry here it was made known to us that the owners had been toying for some time with the idea of building a chapel in the same style as their gardens, since all previous weddings took place under a light canvas canopy roof. They found very romantic the idea of an architect designing the chapel he would marry in so the commission was granted to us.

29 sqm in Wroclaw, Poland by 3XA

Saturday, July 6th, 2013

Article source: 3XA 

29 sqm is a rather small space to live in. Therefore the priority of this makeover was to maximize the space and to create an independent bedroom. The ceiling at 3,7m didn’t allow the designer to create two equivalent levels, but it was possible to build a semi-mezzanine.

The Regional Council of Judea District in Beit Shemesh, Israel by YBGSNA

Saturday, July 6th, 2013

Article source: YBGSNA

Our proposal for the new Regional Council of Building of the District of Judea is based on a balance between our desire to insert a modest intervention in the landscape and a need to design a public building with a substantial formal presence. The relatively large lot (almost 20 dunam) and the modest program, led us to divide the areas into three building masses: a formal “cube” at the upper road with two wings at the lower road, embracing a public plaza.

Emporia in Kansas by Wingårdh Arkitektkontor AB

Saturday, July 6th, 2013

Article source: Wingårdh Arkitektkontor AB

Emporia is first and foremost an urban planning project in which offices, housing, and retail come together in a mixed-use development along Boulevarden and Stationsgatan in Hyllie, on the south side of Malmö. The main idea of our winning competition entry was to hide inward-looking retail behind a wreath of residential and commercial buildings. The whole shopping complex would thereby eventually become integrated into the fabric of the city.

Taichung City Cultural Center Competition Entry in Taiwan by Williamson Architects

Saturday, July 6th, 2013

Article source: Williamson Architects

DESIGN STATEMENT
“The primary space is, by default, the plaza space defined by the awe of the water walls.
There is however no sub-ordinate space. All have their peculiar qualities.
All are challenging the accepted norm, contradicting pre-conceived and naturally occurring ideas of structure.
This built form is only the start of the adventure.” Brad Williamson (Architect)

Pellegari in St Pierre du Mont, France by Agence Bernard Bühler

Saturday, July 6th, 2013

Article source: Agence Bernard Bühler

You might say there was nothing original about an estate made up of small timber-clad houses in the heart of the Landes. And yet the road that leads to it is strewn with fragments of the so-called “built environment”:unfinished estates that seem to begin and end nowhere, streets that are too wide, roundabouts, and low-lying houses whose walls are rendered in colours that beggar definition.
