Surrounded by constructions pertaining to Socialist architecture, the building stands out due to its contemporary features, illustrative of other times and different aspirations. By contrast, the neighbouring buildings, specific to communist architecture enhance the value of the building.

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.

Terranuova Bracciolini Residential building in Arezzo, Italy by Mauro Alpini

Monday, June 24th, 2013

Article source: Mauro Alpini

The history of the city, particularly the city of foundation as Newfoundland Bracciolini teach as these are always involved in processes of transformation and how time has changed shape, changed the contours which in turn were contracted, frayed, cut and forgotten . Today more and more often we are called to work in this jumble of signs and traces, to build in this man-layered dense structure of words, regulations, differences, which in turn characterize the physical social statement.

Knockout the moonlight in Tokyo, Japan by N Maeda Atelier

Friday, June 21st, 2013

Article source: Norisada Maeda

A metaphor used in philosophy is “Mobius’s ring”. This involves taking a piece of tape which is black on one side and white on the other, and twisting the tape halfway and connecting the ends, to form a loop where the side that was black imperceptibly connects to the white side. The idea is to twist the thought that the front is normally black and the back is white, to create a metaphor for connecting and inverting the inside and outside.

The project responds to the surrounding landscape defined by two different topographies: one horizontal plane oriolana garden, where it supports the building, and on the other the ubiquitous mountain in the north facing the delimitation. The volume of the building reflects this duality fragmenting the different volumes that comprise this mechanism to recognize the profile of the mountains to the opening. The building consists of two classrooms of children, four primary classrooms, a gym and a dining room for one hundred students in two shifts, plus all associated teaching spaces.

Centro de Surf de Somo in Cantabria, Spain by Javier Romero Soto. Architect

Friday, June 14th, 2013

Article source:  Javier Romero Soto. Architect

The Ribamontán al Mar Surf Center is located in the seafront of Somo, a small town in near Santander. It’s essential for this new facility to be located as close as possible to the beach (it would be unthinkable that surfers have to move to change, shower or store the surfboards to some urban area of the town); therefore, in the absence of municipal property plot with the required characteristics, we chose to place the building on the seafront. The venue lacks environmental value; one of the goals of the project is in fact to recover this underused space, situated just 20 meters away from the sealine.
