LORD & TAYLOR Ridge Hill in New York by Giorgio Borruso Design

Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

Article source: Giorgio Borruso Design

LEGACY AND INNOVATION

Lord & Taylor, founded in 1826, is the oldest specialty department store chain in the country. They built the first suburban department stores, which became models for a new retail typology. In 1953, Lord & Taylor presented an award for independent thinking to Albert Einstein for his “nonconformity” in scientific matters. The company has an especially interesting story to tell in terms of both its history and its connection to high-level architectural design in its department stores. The projects developed under the leadership of Dorothy Shaver with Raymond Loewy provide a rich catalogue of inspiration. The spatial and formal fluidity in these early works was something we looked to rediscover, in particular, for the store in Ridge Hill, both in terms of the building’s relationship to its context as well as the experience of the public.

As the first new L&T store since 2001, our goal was to realize a project that honors the legacy of an iconic and historic partnership in design, both in terms of its architectural and urban presence (evolving the “big box” store) and its technological and design creativity.

The Closest Church in Gyeonggi-do, Korea by Heesoo Kwak and IDMM Architects

Tuesday, April 11th, 2017

Article source: IDMM Architects

Buildings of the Gimpo new town, where everything looks as new, clean and as fresh as fishes caught in a milk bottle. Well-structured roads and districts look like a checkerboard that has never been used. Through local communities, this place is where ordinary lives and sentiments have just started to settle down and will attempt to engage with different urban cultures and establish its own identity. The closest church is sitting on a corner site of Unyang-dong, Gimpo. Words like corner, edge and vertex connote the existence of more than one live or surface. The church has a facade divided by two conflicting with each other at the vertex of the site. One is a solid and fragmented concrete, proposed by considering the relationship with apartment residents, and the other is a transparent glass that open views to the vast park and also to the church’s worship services. The chapel structured like the bleachers is designed to increase the capacity of the space built on a compact site. Small rooms are positioned behind of the inclined surface of the bleachers and on the top section of it so that the church can make the best use of its space. Especially the outside stairs connecting the ground and the rooftop works as an important element defining the exterior of church, and the vivid movement of its users makes the church’s architectural statement more dynamic. The rooftop space which can host outdoor worship services is open for church communities as well as for locals. The closest church is a place of worship, a cultural venue and public architecture for the local apartment community which was being choked by commercialism. A rooftop cross can’t be found here, but here the cross is leaning on the wall and speaking with a humble voice. Big resonance stirs among listeners rather than among speakers who deliver a moving story, and the sublimity dwell in intimacy not in hierarchy. The cross descended onto the earth will cast a shadow like a shaded tree and will share a story of life with people on the street.

The dynamics and future urban density of the district, as well as the orientation of the site, the vastness of the sky and the proximity to the water are the prerequisites for the implementation of the project. The aim is to create a modern working environment that gives this special place a strong identity, in particular by linking architecture and landscape. The project participates in the development of this new district and dialogues with the important surrounding buildings, the shopping center and the Heaquarter of Icade which are also structured around the channel Darse.

Student Housing Campus Eindhoven University of Technology in Netherlands by Office Winhov + office haratori in collaboration with BDG Architecten Almere

Wednesday, April 5th, 2017

Article source: Office Winhov

Work began on building the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in 1957 based on the urban development plan of S.J. van Embden. His design aimed at creating an idealised factory environment for technical research and study consisting of tall, modern buildings on stilts that were connected with one another and with the laboratories and workshops located in between them by means of aerial walkways. The plan followed the modern ideal of self-contained buildings in a continuous landscape. The rational structure in which the buildings followed a fixed grid pattern was expressed in the curtain walls of the first generation of buildings on the campus. A master plan for the reorganisation and expansion of the campus has been drawn up following the original design. It envisages the introduction of accommodation for students and researchers on the north side of the campus on the edge of the green brook valley of the Dommel.
