Sports Center Sa Indioteria in Palma de Mallorca by Jordi Herrero

Friday, September 21st, 2012

Article source: Jordi Herrero

Fluid limits

Instead of the image of an hermetic pavilion, here the intention is to give continuity from the inside space to the outside one.

The building is implemented to bury the court and the locker rooms. The schema allows to go through, without visual barriers, from the park to the covered platform, to the stands, and finally descending to the court.

House in Foz do Douro II in Porto, Portugal by José Carlos Cruz Arquitecto

Friday, September 21st, 2012

Article source: José Carlos Cruz Arquitecto

The house is placed on a hill between two streets and two houses. Its footprint was dictated by the location of the previous building. The transparency and natural light claim itself as a fundamental element in the project, allowing to see the river through the plat-an treetops.

Escaravox in Matadero Madrid by Andrés Jaque Architects

Friday, September 21st, 2012

Article source: Andrés Jaque Architects

ESCARAVOX are assemblages of discarded rural infrastructures, reprogrammed as voice-giving-publicdevice.

The aim of this project is to endow Matadero Madrid, former slaughterhouse of the city and now an institution self defined as “public space for contemporary culture, with views on the river”, with the necessary material devices and institutional protocols to prompt a connection between the aforementioned models of intervention in the cultural field. To achieve this, the scheme proposes equipping the open spaces of the old abattoir with varied types of large-span mobile structures with sound amplifying systems, stage lighting and audiovisual projection systems, so that in combination with sliding stands, they may serve as auxiliary structures for any public performance held in this space.

Sunset Villa in Okayama, Japan by TTArchitects

Friday, September 21st, 2012

Article source: Teruki Takayoshi

Sites that were originally like this would have normally been given up on. The TT Architects approach to design utilises these negative elements, converting them into positive ones.
The client came to us wishing for the extension situated on the east-side of the block and adjoining the pre-existing main building be removed, and that a building of a similar scale be built in its place.

Islamic Cemetery Altach in Austria by Bernardo Bader

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

Article source: Philipp Bechter

The design of a cemetery is based on the beliefs and their funeral rites, which in turn say a lot about the particular understanding of nature and social relations.

This fact should also be shown clearly in the new cemetery project for Muslims in Vorarlberg.

Kaluga Floating Sauna in Russia by Rintala Eggertsson Architects

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

Article source: Rintala Eggertsson Architects

This is a project based on our experiences of bathing cultures from our respective home countries Finland and Iceland. We wanted to offer our Russian spectators a warm sauna, banja in their own language, and a cold dive directly in the river itself. To have some more local qualities, we added a typical small pine tree from the area and fine lace curtains to add some privacy if needed.
