Kulturbau ‘Forum Confluentes’ in Koblenz, Germany by Benthem Crouwel Architects

Saturday, July 13th, 2013

Article source: Benthem Crouwel Architects

The project started as a won competition for the redevelopment of the “Zentralplatz”. The program included approximately 20.000 m² of retail space, urban functions and a 6.000 m² square.

Urban design concept

The complete program is split into two volumes, separated by the Zentralplatz. This separation of functions allows for two autonomous and highly functional buildings, which can develop long-term and independently. Because of the precise positioning of the buildings and their outline, the pedestrian flows are organized in an effective and logical way.

Pink Flamingo in Paris, France by Stephane Maupin

Wednesday, July 10th, 2013

Article source: Stephane Maupin 

The new building takes place on the east Side of Paris, a new area build over rail tracks. All the difficulty was to make a construction without any foundation. The project is installed above big concrete slabs overcoming trains in motion. So vertical columns are like pink flamingo’s legs. They are installed on 27 small spring boxes connecting the ground floor. Those boxes prevent all trains vibrations to students’ cells.

The Regional Council of Judea District in Beit Shemesh, Israel by YBGSNA

Saturday, July 6th, 2013

Article source: YBGSNA

Our proposal for the new Regional Council of Building of the District of Judea is based on a balance between our desire to insert a modest intervention in the landscape and a need to design a public building with a substantial formal presence. The relatively large lot (almost 20 dunam) and the modest program, led us to divide the areas into three building masses: a formal “cube” at the upper road with two wings at the lower road, embracing a public plaza.

Krrish Square in Colombo, Sri Lanka by Maison Edouard François

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013

Article source: Maison Edouard François

In the heart of Colombo, Sri Lanka, a lot surrounds a historic British-colonial building. In this country, density is not limited and the program quickly takes on an exceptional scale: 450,000 m² are planned for offices, apartments, a hotel, a cinema, and a commercial center. The challenge becomes how to successfully create such a massive program adjacent to a historic monument.

First of May Neighborhood in Santa Fe, Argentina by CBAyA

Tuesday, June 25th, 2013

Article source: CBAyA 

Contemporary cities are shaped as the result of the tension between the will of the state, (theoretically) representative of citizens, and the Market. The struggle between these actors has conditioned, for better or worse, the urban image and even more importantly the lives of all inhabitants. This conditional relationship on a macro scale can be read in the micro scale as well, in each of the buildings that make up the urban scene.
