Fragment à Miracle in Château de Chillon, Veytaux, Switzerland by Lapo Ruffi / LRA, Vanessa Giandonati

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013

Article source: Lapo Ruffi / LRA, Vanessa Giandonati   

Fragment à miracle’ project proposes the construction of an architectural landscape on old foundations, a simultaneous source of wonder and contemplation. The project is related to the context of the landscape’s coastline because of its differentiated permeability and its connection with the environment’s point of strength. Walks, south and north, are connected to the Old Street of Italy which, abandoning its original mission, becomes a witness of Veytaux Villeneuve pedestrian link.

Prague National Gallery Entrance Hall in Hradcanske Square, Prague, Czech Republic by Mateo Arquitectura

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013

Article source: Mateo Arquitectura

In the grounds of Prague Castle, among various palaces currently reused to house the National Gallery, the brief was to design a small building that provides an entrance to the museum complex. Two parallel surfaces organize what used to be an empty space without weighing it down: one forms the floor, the other the roof.

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013

Article source: García Floquet Arquitectos

The expansion of secondary and professional school “9 d’Octubre de Carlet” (Valencia) is proposed as an opportunity to restructure an existing system and to rethink about relationship between the new building/s and the landscape, a privileged agricultural environment. The project is mainly based in economy of means and in effective use of space freed by the initial constructions.

Brunnenstrasse 9 in Berlin, Germany by Brandlhuber+ Emde, ERA, Schneider

Friday, May 31st, 2013

Article source: Brandlhuber+ Emde, ERA, Schneider

The house on Brunnenstrasse 9 is an extension of the foundations of a building “ruin” that was the result of a bad investment in the ’90s. The existing consisted of the cellar walls towards the neighboring house, the street and the courtyard, and a cellar ceiling, with exception of the parts of the lift and the drive-through; the steel reinforcement of the incomplete building protruded from the street level. The found structure was not only included but was even further developed in the new building. The angles of sun rays determine the volume of the attic floor, maximizing the light exposure of the building in the back.

134 Dwellings in Larrein, Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain by Patxi Cortázar and José Manuel Simón

Friday, May 31st, 2013

Article source: Patxi Cortázar and José Manuel Simón

The U-shape building with orientation to the south that the approach proposes is respected, increasing the height and the flexibility of the highest alignments with the purpose of introducing a higher-than-planned number of dwellings.  The building is formally brought up with rectilinear prisms and gaps every two floors, made with two prevailing materials: dark-grey prefabricated panels and glass.

Hudson Hill Condominium in New York City by FXFOWLE Architects

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

Article source: FXFOWLE Architects

Hudson Hill Condominium designed by FXFOWLE (2009) is located just west of Columbus Circle in the Clinton Hill District in New York City. The infill building’s Trespa-paneled façade, spanning 125 feet, is designed to actuate the street wall and bring character to the residential units. Designed to appear more opaque from the east, the faceted façade harmonizes with the adjacent rows of townhouses and small apartment buildings. The façade opens to the west so many of the two and three bedroom apartments capture views of a park at the corner of Tenth Avenue and the Hudson River beyond.

Universitary College, Extremadura University, Badajoz 1980 in Spain by Arquitectos Ayala

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

Article source: Arquitectos Ayala

I used to live in a college for so many years. There the students were distributed in sunny rooms or darkness rooms. Due to I never got the needed status and college prestige, I could never be moved to the sunny rooms. It seemed that students from these sunny rooms were happier and with better color as we used to have painful look.

The first area, a metallic structure, stands as a technologically useful container; it is enclosed by high quality pre-fabricated plate paneling and its floors and ceilings are totally technical. It lodges offices, control quarters, editorial offices, projection rooms, etc. i.e. the parts that share some requirements. The other area houses studios, workshops and warehouses. It was built with concrete walls covered by plain stone.
