Conversion of Doxiadis Office Building-ATI to Apartment Building in Athens, Greece by Divercity

Friday, February 20th, 2015

Article source: Divercity

An icon of Greek post-war modern architecture, the Doxiadis building, having decayed during the last 20 years, finally came back to life through its conversion into a residential building. This conversion raises crucial questions about the notions of memory, preservation, integration into natural and built environments and innovation inspired by the potential of existing spaces.

Island Dwelling in Co. Galway, Ireland by O’Neill Architecture

Friday, February 13th, 2015

Article source: O’Neill Architecture

CONCEPT
For this building project on the Aran Islands, Co. Galway, we developed the designs from the simplicity of the landscape; working with the given contours, solar orientation and making reference to traditional design. The living area located on the upper level allows spectacular views of the Cliffs of Moher. It is connected to a terrace which is so orientated as to create a sun-trap and catch the sun from late morning until the last of the evening sun rays are obscured by the above lying escarpment. The views from the road are shielded by part of the house, creating the private and sheltered outdoor space. Fortunately the escarpment acts as a wind break for the prevailing westerly winds ensuring great use of this outdoor terrace in most weather conditions.

Article source: THE ARCHITECT JEAN-PHILIPPE PARGADE

On a site covering nearly seven hectares in the Cité Descartes cluster in Marne-la-Vallée lies the Pôle Scientifique et Technique Paris-Est (PST) which has been baptised the Espace Bienvenüe in memory of Fulgance Bienvenüe, inspector general of the Ponts et Chaussées engineering school and father of the Parisian metro system. The space completes the Cité Descartes that has been incorporated into this new town and meets the needs of the programme imposed by the Ministry of Ecology, Sustainable development and Energy. Its aim is to group together the Ministry’s training and research facilities on the Marne-la-Vallée site and create a centre of excellence focussed on the sustainable city.

Article source: [tp3] architekten ZT GmbH 

The exceptional property with its existing topography as well as the views towards the city of Linz and the industrial area of Voest were starting points for the design of this project.

Residential building in Staines, UK by Architects of Invention

Wednesday, February 11th, 2015

Article source: Architects of Invention

The building is seven stories high with descending terraces at the front, which offer views towards the river from the internally situated apartments. While the building is foremost designated as residential, part of the ground floor is occupied with space for retail. The building’s round shape creates public spaces on the ground floor – opening to the north–east between the Strata House and the new development and also from the south-east corner on the embankment by the bridge.

“Building at Beylikdüzü” in Istanbul, Turkey by YEGENA

Wednesday, February 11th, 2015

Article source: YEGENA

The building at Beylikdüzü / İstanbul was designed in 2011. Starting point of this design was the segmentation of a rectangular prism whose size is at maximum allow able by local zoning regulations, by load-bearing walls. After this first design step, while these load-bearing walls form the balconies on the building block , they also establish the facade of the building by back and forth free and independent movements between floors. This secondary and final step is  perceived especially from perspective views and constitutes an irregular repetition array. Although started with a regular geometry, by the help of this irregular repetition array , the desired attractive irregular rhythm is achieved.

Tropism of Wild Flower in Seoul, Korea by Dongjin Kim / L’EAU design Co.,Ltd.

Saturday, February 7th, 2015

Article source: Dongjin Kim / L’EAU design Co.,Ltd.

A City is a community filled with diverse discrete entities and a silhouette appears by the creation of a standardized system for the mutual co-existence of all entities. It is the Architecture which forms their living environment within this unknown disorder among the city’s entities. Architecture is a multi-layered, three dimensional object within the Urban Eco-system. If the architecture is seized by the logic of economy and hardens to a solid object and cannot react flexibly to the variety of changes and the environmental stimulus, the flow of symbiosis forms within the biosphere will inevitably break naturally.
