Outpost in Idaho by Olson Kundig

Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017

Article source: Olson Kundig 

Set in the remote, harsh high desert of Idaho, Outpost is an artist’s live/work studio and sculpture garden. The building’s compactness restricts site impact and reinforces the desire to be outside. This is a windy place, and the enclosed “paradise garden,” is separated from the wild landscape by thick masonry walls. The footprint of the house is the limit of intrusion into the land—a simple, clearly defined space. This structure exemplifies Kundig’s belief that the architect’s job is to create an experience of place.

Musashino-kan Shinjuku Cinema Theater in Tokyo, Japan by Key Operation, Inc.

Tuesday, July 11th, 2017

Article source: Key Operation, Inc.

Naito Shinjuku was established in 1699 as a stage stop along a major thoroughfare heading out of Edo (old name of Tokyo). Dropping the “Naito,” the district started to be called Shinjuku in 1920, the same year that saw the Musashino-kan Shinjuku emerge on Shinjuku-dori Avenue, which was also home to the Shinjuku Mitsukoshi store. Local merchants opened a 600-seat movie theater in the three-story wooden structure with tiled façades. In 1928, Musashino-kan Shinjuku relocated to its current site, a new cinema with 1,115 seats housed in a three-story concrete building. During the silent movie era, Musei Tokugawa was active as a narrator here. Later, an air raid over Tokyo caused a fire to burn the entire interior of the theater, but the building survived and became a symbol of post-war recovery. Cinema offered entertainment to the populace, and Musashino-kan entered the golden age in an alliance of more than 20 theaters. But the movie-going population peaked in 1958 at 1.1 billion tickets, and rapidly dropped to 1/3 of that patronage by 1965. Amidst a declining industry, the decrepit Musashino-kan was demolished in 1966 and rebuilt. Still standing today, the building initially consisted of a retail and dining complex seven floors aboveground and three floors underground. The first movie theater in this new building had 500 seats on the seventh floor. In 1994, the Cinema Qualite mini-theater opened. The seventh floor was closed in 2002, and the third-floor theater operations changed banners from Cinema Qualite to Musashino-kan Shinjuku. For the improvements made most recently, however, aseismic reinforcement work on the entire building prompted the Musashino-kan Shinjuku on the third floor to undergo a complete renovation.

Seaside Periscope in Gdynia, Poland by Adam Wiercinski Architekt

Friday, July 7th, 2017

Article source: Adam Wiercinski Architekt 

The idea for a public toilet in Gdynia is closely related to the location of the given area. View of the open sea and extending walking paths, suggested concept of creating building that besides its primary function will be set in a seaside tourist character. Periscope building allows its users to observe sea from the interior not through the traditional window. By placing the upper mirror of this periscope mechanism at a height of 4m, view of the water is raised above the boulevard’s level and so the strolling people. Users of the public toilet can see an undisturbed yet always different image of the Baltic Sea. Monolithic, concrete building owes its shape to the hidden periscope structure, but due to the rounded arcade and used raw materials, building with its profile resembles the nearby breakwater, blending with the local landscape. In the gap between the women’s and men’s toilet, there is a tribune from which people can enjoy view of the Baltic Sea. Its form, in contrast to the traditional benches, can hold a larger group of people. Wooden finish of the tribune and its surrounding walls warms raw style of the building. Inside the toilet, as well as outside the building, walls are covered with concrete. Free space under periscope construction is filled with huge pebbles, reminding the breakwater. Simple interior exposes periscope’s mirror with Baltic Sea view. Direct access to the building allows independent use of all the toilet rooms. Whole object in its form and function blends with the coastal mood, creating entirely new point on the promenade path.
