House 101 in Barcelona, Spain by H Arquitectes

Tuesday, May 8th, 2012

Article source: H Arquitectes

Even though the regulations allowed to build ground floor and two floors, the first great decision was to compact the program in two only floors. Thus, the zone shares the ground floor by day with the parking lot that incorporates into the functional program of the house. The second decision was to place the main courtyard in the corner in such a way that the relationship between the living room and the kitchen is produced throw it.. The program of rooms concentrates in the upper floor where one turns up another courtyard that, together with the skylights, allows distributing the pieces without the need for opening up directly in street. The house becomes opaque in the limits, but it expands in its inside.

KABC’s vision for the development of the innovative office and research center in the Hai Chuang Yuan Community reflects the goals of the new high technology research campus, which promotes a new paradigm for research and development campuses in the region. Sustainability is at the core of the architectural expression, encompassing environmental, social, economic and cultural sustainability by fostering community and promoting new techniques and technologies. As one approaches the innovative office and research center in the Hai Chuang Yuan Community , the buildings immediately captivate the passerby with their iconic presence. Freestanding on the site, they read as transparent, geometrical, glazed forms floating as visually light, crystalline structures above the landscape.

We tried to organize the space in a large and clean way, attempting to highlight the ampleness of the store despite the various happenings. The pavement and the ceiling, in white, contrast with the set of cabinets that cover the walls, designed in a way to serve as storage and display.

Biodiversity and the Creation of Mobile Natural Growth by Lijbers Architects

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

Article source: Lijbers Architects

Context – Problem Definition
One way to look at the decline of natural biodiversity is from the perspective of complex human dynamics –i.e. the organized but fundamentally unpredictable behavior of human systems – and its consequences for the natural environment. We humans tend to expand, move, and reallocate ground at speeds unparalleled within the natural world. Our persistent and unpredictable need for space, land, and raw materials causes the original natural environment to diminish, along with its ecosystem of plants and animals. The highly dynamic reallocation and changing of the earth’s habitat by human action falls short in providing vulnerable species of plants and animals with sufficient time to recover. The continuous cycle of removing and reallocating natural space can, in the best case, maintain a certain amount of the “natural environment”, yet it can never maintain the same level of biodiversity that was originally present.
