Europan 13 Community, a sustainable building in Barcelona, Spain by Archilea architecture

Sunday, March 20th, 2016

Article source: Archilea architecture 

The strategy: The project stems from the desire to decline the concept of sustainability, specific in this competition, in three distinct areas: environmental sustainability, social sustainability and economic sustainability. The stated goal is to create a system in which the three fields can interact and integrate in order to reach equilibrium without one of the three areas of the system, which normally happens, can take precedence over others. To create this system, one of the aspects taken into consideration was the ability to move away from the traditional housing system in which the threshold of building represents a limit insideoutside trying to include in the own building a whole series of activities that can aggregate functions and increase the opportunities to meet and socialize the inhabitants. The basic idea is that the internal layout of the building is transformed into a “public square” open to the outside integrating, as mentioned, functions traditionally handled from outside and defining the building, in fact, as an hybrid: this combination of features provides the possibility to the residents of the building to meet, socialize and discuss transforming the whole neighborhood in a community, overcoming the possible socio-economic and cultural-linguistic differences.

Abbaye Belgian Restaurant in Chengdu, China by MRDA Architects

Sunday, March 20th, 2016

Article source: MRDA Architects

The rapid urbanization process in China totally splits the historical and contemporary buildings. The abundant history and  traditional culture  that cities bear is gradually overwhelmed by fanatical development. Historical  buildings represent a city’s past  that has been given the meaning of urban culture. However, most of the historical buildings have been given up in the impetuous development.

Centre de dia i casal de gent gran de Blancafort in Spain by GUILLEM CARRERA arquitecte

Sunday, March 20th, 2016

Article source: GUILLEM CARRERA arquitecte

Day center and home for the elderly of Blancafort.

A social building necessary for the elderly of the village of Blancafort and its neighboring municipalities.

The initial observation of the plot and its environment led to consider that the future building did not have to solve only a program and a requirement of an isolated building, but it also had to help consolidate the nearest urban fabric, creating an entrance to the village with its own personality and public character.

SOCIAL HOUSING in Bergen, Norway by Rabatanalab (Rocco Salomone)

Thursday, March 17th, 2016

Article source: Rocco Salomone (Rabatanalab)

The project area is situated in a unique area of Bergen in Norway. Located just outside the historic city centre on the south side of Store Lungegårdsvannet near the Møllendal River, the site has a long history as an industrial area, including milling back to the Middle Ages, and storage for the city’s technical department in recent times. Much of the Møllendal area has for decades been inaccessible and unsuited for public use so making a fracture between two parts of the town. The project aims to reconnect and to give continuity to a new territory exploring transitions between land and water; the goal is to create the conditions for regenerating the area into an attractive and active waterfront neighborhood.

Bayside in Toronto, Canada by ODA New York

Tuesday, March 15th, 2016

Article source: ODA New York 

The practice of orienting a home to the path of the sun is as old as civilization itself, and in nature, significantly predates it.  Just as plants and flowers orient themselves to the sun through phototaxis, the newest building designed by ODA New York, appears to be doing the same.
