New Church of Våler Proposal in Norway by Francesco Fiotti (designed with 3DS Max)

Thursday, April 19th, 2012

Article source: Francesco Fiotti

Our proposal for the New Church of Våler is placed in the southern part of the project area in continuity with the ancient church, attempting to recover not only the orientation of it, but also the memory. The proposed design refers at the boat: the boat as a symbol of Christianity that welcomes and protects within it the faithful; the Drakkar as tribute at the exploratory tradition of the Norwegian people.

Lotto-Turm in Stuttgart, Germany by Frohlocke

Thursday, April 19th, 2012

Article source: Frohlocke

The site “Österreichischer Platz“ is situated on the edge of Stuttgart’s city center.

Its function has not changed a bit in the last 40 years, it is surrounded by and isolated through highways, it is used as a parking lot and also as a meeting point for dubious people. The people have almost forgotten about it somehow after being in a bad state for years. But now the rhythm as well as the character of the surrounding highway will be interrupted by 55 piled-up sea containers

Kenneally Residence in Oregon by PIQUE llc

Thursday, April 19th, 2012

Article source: PIQUE llc

Lot 108 has a prominent location in the Tetherow golf development featuring spectacular views of and from the golf course as well as desirable views of the distant landscape. These features combined with our client’s demands for a variety of living spaces with varied degrees of privacy, formal and informal concerns and clear distinctions between workplace and play space armed the project with a long list of things the building needs to achieve. Through in-depth site and program analysis, we were able to manage and prioritize these factors and create a building design that is intensely specific to its site and its occupants as well as sensitive to the environment.
