Spacumer in Seoul, Korea by L’EAU Design

Thursday, January 7th, 2016

Article source: L’EAU Design

Hongdae brand, which was originated from railroad that was used as a parking lot in 1990’s, has now became a place with many different cultures as the street with various programs begin to expend in 21st century. 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.

New School of Architecture, Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm, Sweden by Tham & Videgård Arkitekter

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2015

Article source: Tham & Videgård Arkitekter

The site on the KTH campus, with its very tangible cultural and historical context and its physical limitations, could be described as the opposite of a blank slate (Tabula Rasa). The new school is inserted into an existing courtyard space with existing pathways and is located adjacent to Erik Lallerstedt’s original and quite monumental brick buildings from the early twentieth century.

Urban Revitalization in Long Beach, California by Gwynne Pugh Urban Studio

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2015

Article source: Gwynne Pugh Urban Studio

In any major city, there are certain areas that become, or have always been, rough around the edges, driving residents away and contributing to a sense of urban decay. Whether through neglect, a shift in demographics, a change in the local economy, or other market forces, these areas become not just an eyesore, but a blight on the neighborhood. And so it was with a section of town in East Long Beach, California, which had deteriorated to the point of being a place that most residents of the city actively avoided.
