VCU Adcenter in Richmond, Virginia by Clive Wilkinson Architects

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2011

Article source: Clive Wilkinson Architects

VCU Adcenter in Richmond, Virginia, is one of the foremost media, advertising and communications schools in North America. In an effort to expand and broaden the educational prospectus, a new building was planned. A vacant historic three-storey brick carriage house from 1890 provided the main school teaching space, and this is supplemented with a new 12,000 SF three-storey ‘service structure’ located along side, which provides modern facilities and additional space on several levels, including seismic bracing of the old building.

Mar Mediterrâneo & Mar Vermelho Office Buildings in Lisbon, Portugal by IDF – Ideias do Futuro

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2011

Article source: IDF – Ideias do Futuro

The Project for two office buildings located on Parque das Nações fits into a rectangular lot with three fronts. They are isolated structures that rise from a common landscaped platform and are compatible in size. A parallelepiped finishes the top of the block while it encloses the plaza outlined by the H shaped building. The main entrances of both buildings meet face to face in this public space interstitial to the street level which is extended on the upper level garden where one may walk around and take in the surroundings.

Sunday, November 20th, 2011

Article source: Mateusz Adamczyk

Young architects dream about designing and building big houses. However, the reality is quite the opposite – they work on small scale commissions. FiuFiu boutique is one of those petite spaces and its concept is based on yearning for making homes even of papermache.

White Monolith in Mistelbach, Austria by LOSTINARCHITECTURE (designed using AutoCAD and 3dS Max)

Saturday, November 19th, 2011

Article source: LOSTINARCHITECTURE

In the rural Weinviertel region of Lower Austria individual examples of new architecture are generally introduced with caution and reticence. This makes it all the more surprising when suddenly, on a busy street in the densely built-up part of the town of Mistelbach (population 13,000), not far from the main square, you come across a white monolith that speaks a self-assured architectural language.

Poppodium De Vorstin in Hilversum, The Netherlands by Frits van Dongen, de Architekten Cie.

Saturday, November 19th, 2011

Article source: Frits van Dongen, de Architekten Cie.

The Sovereign pop venue is an icon for musical expression, situated at a prominent location in Hilversum. It lies within walking distance from the railway station, at a major crossroads in the inner-city road network, and is clearly visible from the train. As a consequence, the front on the Koninginneweg is the most important façade: it is The Sovereign’s visiting card.

Bamboo Symphony in Bangalore, India by Manasaram Architects

Saturday, November 19th, 2011

Article source: Manasaram Architects

This Project is shortlisted in World Architecture Festival,2011
Development and environment are inextricably linked and must be nourished by a change in the means, the content and the uses of growth. Three criteria€™s to be necessarily retained are: social justice, ecological prudence and economic efficiency. As the repercussions and downsides of the western culture and architecture are being discovered and the world is turning towards regional technologies – two definite categories of Development are emerging -one based on the principle of recycling and the other on the use of natural materials capable of being used without requiring industrial processing. Mud and BAMBOO figure prominently in the second category of Development. Bamboo is a premiere building material in the new architectural movement with Sustainability and Integrative approach as its two important criteria. HIGH SCIENCE AND SIMPLE TECHNOLOGY!

Shoreline Walk in Beirut, Lebanon by Gustafson Porter

Thursday, November 17th, 2011

Article source: Gustafson Porter

The ‘Shoreline Walk’ is a sequence of connected spaces which form part of the reconstruction of the Beirut city centre. The area suffered physically and emotionally during the 1975-1991 Civil War. Beirut was once a melting pot of cultures and religions but the war created the ‘Green Line’, a physical barrier between the Christian East and Muslim West. This might have been difficult to erase, however the rebuilding demonstrates the Beirut’s character and resolve.

Ordos T.C.A.O. Museum in Inner Mongolia, China by ///byn

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

Article source: ///byn

Chinese calligraphy is mainly based in three characteristics: status of mind, line & color. These tree concepts triggered our original ideas for the Ordos Museum

The inhabiting/space populating logic in Inner Mongolia is grouping. Local herds of camels & horses used to browse the steppe in search for comfort. This comfort was only fulfilled when they would arrive to a DECISSION to settle in the landscape. In the same manner, the always present clouds populate the Inner Mongolian sky: groups of rounded & cotton locking clouds spread at the intense blue sky. Finally, also the original nomads will settle their yurts following a constellation. An primary impression of non-organization is quickly overcome by a self-organized logic. Here, the museum volumes have found their own space in the park. The logics of placement come from many different aspects: orientation, functionality, targeted visuals, public space, creating a unique orchestrated sequence of spaces.
