Article source: Chris Jasinski

Bratenahl is a distinctive residential village in Ohio, founded in 1905 with a current population of 1,305 and located along the shores of Lake Erie, ten minutes northeast of downtown Cleveland. The surrounding residences built over a century ago, were progressively eclectic in their day, when their classic European grandeur helped create a lifestyle for Cleveland’s cultural and political leaders.

Contemporary Art Museum in Raleigh, North Carolina by Brooks + Scarpa Architects (designed with Rhino and AutoCAD)

Tuesday, February 7th, 2012

Article source: Brooks + Scarpa Architects

Located in Raleigh’s revitalizing Historic Depot District, an unlikely butterfly has emerged from its decades-long cocoon. The historic 1910 two-story brick structure built for Allen Forge & Welding Company and enlarged around 1927 for the Brogden Produce Company — and more recently home to longtime occupant Cal-Tone Paints — has emerged from its asbestos clad sheathing into a new incarnation as the home of Raleigh’s Contemporary Art Museum (CAM).

Article source: Rosan Bosch & Rune Fjord

LEGO’s designers are the luckiest in the world – they get to play with LEGO all day long! Now, the designers of LEGO’s development department, LEGO PMD, has a physical working environment that corresponds to its playful content – a working environment where fun, play and creativity are paramount and where the physical design gives the adults a chance to be part of children’s play. With the values ’fun’, ’unity’, ’creativity & innovation’, ’imagination’ and ’sustainability’ as basis for the design, LEGO PMD has become a unique development department where the designers can become part of the children’s fantasy world. LEGO doesn’t just create fun for others – at LEGO PMD working is fun!

The Wright at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City by Andre Kikoski Architect, PLLC

It was both an incredible honor and an exhilarating challenge to create The Wright, the new restaurant at the Guggenheim Museum — which is the first addition to the building’s iconic interior. We sought to create a contemporary response to complement the building with an extremely modest budget and 1,600 square feet in which to work.

Integral House in Toronto, Canada by Shim-Sutcliffe Architects

Wednesday, February 1st, 2012

Article source: Shim-Sutcliffe Architects

The Integral House creates a place for architecture, music, and performance located at the threshold between Toronto’s urban fabric and its extensive natural ravine system. In the project’s program brief, our client clearly articulated his dual passion for mathematics and music and his interest in curvilinear shapes resulting in spatially complex volumes.

  • Software used: The design was developed though hand drafting and physical model building techniques.  The working drawings for construction were further developed using AutoCAD, along with some additional hand drafting.    Some of the custom hardware pieces – such as the  door handles and glass clips for the blue glass stair were developed using Rhinoceros NURBS modeling. The design process was iterative – typically it would start with a hand sketch, or a physical model, which would then be further developed using AutoCAD, and / or Rhino, depending on the item.

Salt Research Center in Istanbul, Turkey by S A N A L architecture|urbanism

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012

Article source: S A N A L  architecture|urbanism

The SALT research center was envisioned as a public tool and a vehicle to research, exchange, engage, and create content. The uniqueness of the historic building and the spatial volume of the Avlu was something to behold and therefore our design approach pursued both in a dialogue. Underpinning the material and formal choices of the design is the building’s eclecticism style of the late 19th Century, the other designer’s approaches to create the building’s contemporary character, and to co-locate with the Beyoglu building. ‘Socially engaging’ to the diversity of potential users and visitors was the spatial organization brief given in by the user group.

Filadelfia Corporate Suites in Mexico City by Bunker Arquitectura

Sunday, January 29th, 2012

Article source: Bunker Arquitectura

What happens when the concept of a project is reduced to a facade in the process of its development? Are purely aesthetic aims valid in architecture? Is façadism something worthwhile? Are we to become architectural dermatologists?

A client contacted us to design a hotel for corporate suites in Napoles, a residential neighborhood in Mexico City that has been rapidly converting to office use over the past few years. The plot was located across the street from the convention center of the World Trade Center, by far the busiest office building in the city. The suites were intended to accommodate businesspeople visiting the WTC and the year round expositions.
