Embedded Interferences in Pordenone, Italy by Disguincio&co

Sunday, May 12th, 2013

Article source: Disguincio&co

E.I. is the new facade of a series of warehouses dated back to the ’80s, situated at the east gate of Pordenone. The expansion is designed to accommodate new offices and give a unified appearance to the complex, currently fragmented both in terms of color and shape. The particular geometry solves organically these dissonant moments: tectonic components (pillars, beams, etc..) and programmatic exigencies (openings, entrances, etc..) have been integrated into a single body, in fact, the mass of the building is stretched to generate ground supports and tears to open the interior to natural light.

Addis Abeba Chamber of Commerce Headquarters in Ethiopia by BC Architects

The creation of urban potential – through architecture, and the quest for a glocal architecture

Urbanism, in common perception, comes before architecture: urbanism creates potential by generating conditions to orchestrate the city’s latter architectural objects. Urbanism is a very generous way of thinking, since a lot is left open, whereas architecture is a more selfish discipline, which uses up the potential generated by others. In some rapidly changing cities of the global south though, urbanism doesn’t necessarily happen before architecture: it coincides in time.
