Optimization of the roof as a solar receiving surface for photovoltaic electrical production generates the form of the 450 square foot (42m2) addition and renovation of an existing house in Culver City, California.  Coupling the client’s desire to create a net zero electrical consumption with the generation of the form provides an opportunistic strategy to integrate performance with the sculptural nature of the architectural entity.

Since then, places such as Sangsu-dong, Hapjeong-dong and Yeonnam-dong begun to act as a brand, and ‘Hongdae’ became something more than an ordinary place and created new alley culture. The concept of different programs of street continuously extending and creating a new place, which was expanded from the concept of various congregate in one-dimensional facade, indicates the possibility of urban vitalization using urban culture and it is already proven by Ssamzigil of Insa-dong.

Timmerhuis in Rotterdam, Netherlands by OMA

Thursday, December 24th, 2015

Article source: OMA 

For Rotterdam’s Timmerhuis, a new building for the city hall that accommodates municipal services, offices, and residential units, OMA conceived a modular building with repeated units gradually set back from the street as they rise into two irregular peaks. The building’s composition of smaller cells creates an impressive, complex form when viewed from Coolsingel, one of Rotterdam’s main arteries, and allows for subtlety and adaptability as the new building meets the Stadstimmerhuis (a municipal building, from 1953), which surrounds it on two sides.
