An Elementary School Near Warsaw in Podkowa Leśna, Poland by Grupa 5 Architekci

Saturday, October 20th, 2012

Article source: Grupa 5 Architekci

An elementary school in a picturesque and tranquil suburbian town near Warsaw.

The building is embedded in a unique setting in the center of the town – surrounded by freestanding family houses, intimate gardens and an old church. In order to tie in to the existing context, the relatively large object was divided into several smaller ones, with the largest part – the gym hidden at the back.

Article source: Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture AB

Redevelopment of a centrally located site in Göteborg. The commission was to develop the future empty site remaining from the planned demolishing of the old bridge Göta älvbron.

The Proposal aims to link the fragmented urban fabric that is the present state of the site. A new green urban axis connects the waterfront with the city center and existing green urban areas. This new walk and bicycle path aims to secure green public space in a future densification of the central site.

To the north of King’s Cross and St Pancras International railway stations, 67-acres of derelict land are being transformed in what is one of Europe’s largest urban regeneration projects.

Externato Carvalho Araújo in Braga, Portugal by J M Carvalho Araújo Arquitectura e Design

Wednesday, June 27th, 2012

Article source: J M Carvalho Araújo Arquitectura e Design

A large property nowadays too divided. We tried not to aggravate their characterization and to safeguard the reference of the existing building.

It was important for us to preserve the environment of the existing entry of the manor house, and reduce the environmental impact of new volumes, looking in all to make a new front to enrich the future city park.

Brockman Hall for Physics at Rice University, Houston, Texas by The Office of James Burnett

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

Article source: OJB

The Brockman Hall for Physics is a 111,000 SF facility housing classrooms, laboratory space, lecture halls and administrative offices for the Physics Department as well as physicists from the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Rice University in Houston, Texas. Driven by Rice University’s belief that some of the most important moments on campus are moments of informal discussion and debate outside of the classroom, the design of the building and landscape seeks to provide a multitude of spaces for lively and inspiring conversation.

The building and landscape reinforce the existing grid of the campus. Dramatic lighting accentuates these formal elements

Apartment building complex in Germany by Ambrozoom3D

Friday, June 1st, 2012

Article source: Ambrozoom3D

The project was realized in summer 2011 for a media agency in Germany. As the architecture of the buildings, the brochure layout was clean, simple, minimalist but very elegant, contained only white, grey and a gold print colors, so the visualizations had to integrate perfectly into the design, maintaining the realistic look. Ambrozoom3D realized 8 perspectives (2 for each building, one bird eye and one general south view), and 24 floor plans for each apartment. The floor plans also had to be integrated into the brochure, therefor keeping a minimalist look, with few textures and each of them had to contain some decoration in gold.
