Wednesday, December 11th, 2013

Article source: Alessandro Luigini

The building is in an upgrading area by replacing unqualified and obsolete construction. The size of the project, however, and its location on a side street than the major artery of Viale G. Bovio, urban section of the SS16 Adriatica, confer to this building a exclusively architectonic role, with no possibility of influencing the city around, if not its presence qualifying.

Tuesday, December 10th, 2013

Article source: NL Architects

Nieuw-Crooswijk is a residential area in Rotterdam, strategically located near the city center and Kralingse Bos, a beautiful park. Everything within 10 minutes”. Large parts have recently been demolished and will soon be reconstructed.

Seven architecture offices were invited to contribute to a differentiated ‘cityscape’. The objective was to create expressive architecture; the focus on refining the facades by to introducing elaborate details; accentuating entrances, articulating bay windows and balconies, introducing intricate brickwork, pronounced window frames and delicate fences: sculptural on the micro scale.

New Empire City Casino Building in New York by STUDIO V Architecture

Tuesday, December 10th, 2013

Article source: STUDIO V Architecture

The new building by STUDIO V Architecture at Empire City looks nothing like a typical casino. Evolving government policies are transforming the gaming industry; heightened attention and competition have catalyzed casinos to push the boundaries of design, innovation, and visitor experience. Tim Rooney, whose famed family also owns the Pittsburgh Steelers, approached STUDIO V to create a radical and contemporary new building to stand out among ferocious competition in this burgeoning industry-wide revolution.To re-invent a building type that typically produces themed, single-story, hermetically-sealed boxes, the Empire City Casino expansion uses avant garde architecture, cutting edge materials, and ground-breaking technology to create a fresh, light-filled, and stimulating space.

Avant Chelsea in New York City by 1100 Architect

Tuesday, December 10th, 2013

Article source: 1100 Architect

The Avant Chelsea, a 40,000-square-foot, twelve-story residential condominium, occupies a tight and challenging site in New York City. The design maximizes the building size allowed within zoning regulations through an unconventional array of setbacks that add bedrooms and exterior terraces to the uppermost four stories. Artful proportioning of a standard window wall system on the street facade balances the scale of the user with that of the building at large.

Indigo Magenta by Diederendirrix Architects

Sunday, December 1st, 2013

Article source: Diederendirrix Architects

Two large autonomous blocks were proposed by the council in consecutive urban development plans for an undeveloped area on the edge of Lakerlopen. Their position and shape would distinguish them from the adjacent garden village. Both volumes lie at a right-angle to the rectangular layout of the garden village. One block more or less faces the Tongelrestraat with its long facade, the other looks towards the Paulus Potterstraat.

2 North Moore in West Broadway, New York by Turett Collaborative Architects

Sunday, November 24th, 2013

Article source: Turett Collaborative Architects

The two-story brick building on the corner of West Broadway and N. Moore Street lies at the edge of the TriBeCa West Historic District. The 1870s-era structure itself was singled out for preservation on account of its distinctive corbelled brick work, prominent location, unusual acute plan, low massing, and multitude of French- and double-hung windows.

DIAMOND CITY in Adelaide, Australia by Tom Wiscombe Design

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

Article source:  Tom Wiscombe Design

We propose an interior city existing inside a mysterious diamond-like object. The approach stands in opposition to conventional master planning, where a set of reductive instructions such as building use, open space, and setbacks inherently undermine any tendency towards massively dense or monolithic forms. This building is not a map of history, a reified system of flows, or an evolutionary diagram.
