ENSTA, ParisTech Engineering School’s in Paris, France by Jean-Baptiste Lacoudre Architectures

Thursday, February 28th, 2013

Article source: Jean-Baptiste Lacoudre Architectures

The new campus of ENSTA Paris Tech, which invested the location of Palaiseau, perfectly merges into the geometry of the structuring axes of the “Ecole Polytechnique”. In the heart of the area, it provides a new identity to the landscape..
The school, which is the main building of ENSTA ParisTech campus, lands along the boulevard surrounded by a vast redesigned space with lawns and trees. The exterior conviviality space, which is naturally blended into the rolling design of the park, provides plenty of space for social interaction.

São Paulo. In this city, which contemporaneity is able to perform the most extraordinary urban contrasts for us, living can reveal an encouraging condition. In search of a place where this could be experienced, the idea of an elementary residence acquires the character of a happening. Thus, as this house decided to silently place itself at the westerly metropolitan meanders, is how it is presented at Maracanã Street.

ALV&NAT House in Madrid, Spain by ALT arquitectura

Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

Article source: ALT arquitectura

We are used to perform spectacular photographic reports retouched in photoshop to show a perfection, which is neither true, nor is attractive in my opinion. We focus on an architecture more intuitive and emotional than intellectual and rational, where raw sincerity of its construction. We try to generate emotions, derived from the configuration of space and form, use of materials, their textures, their relationship with nature and light.

Campeche Apartments in Mexico City, Mexico by Ambrosi I Etchegaray

Article source: Ambrosi I Etchegaray

The site 15m wide by 25m deep is located in Campeche Street, inside Colonia Condesa. The project is comprised of four housing units overlapping each other, two of them with the public areas to the street and the other two to the rear of the property. The houses try to break the sense of depth in the site through courtyards and terraces in the front, middle and back of the property, to which all the spaces of the houses live; in this way each of them has an immediate extension to an outer space.

Article source: Ricardo Bofill Taller de Arquitectura

The sea is always an enormous challenge for an architect. The Mediterranean Sea is the most unusual site. The infrastructure works started with the opening of the new mouth that effectively divides theBarcelonaharbour into two areas: small and big ships. The urban mission of the project is to provide an extension at the south point to the city waterfront. The project includes a public plaza opening to the sea, a marina and a landmark hotel, a wonderful icon for a cosmopolitan city.
