New School of Architecture, Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm, Sweden by Tham & Videgård Arkitekter

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2015

Article source: Tham & Videgård Arkitekter

The site on the KTH campus, with its very tangible cultural and historical context and its physical limitations, could be described as the opposite of a blank slate (Tabula Rasa). The new school is inserted into an existing courtyard space with existing pathways and is located adjacent to Erik Lallerstedt’s original and quite monumental brick buildings from the early twentieth century.

Urban Revitalization in Long Beach, California by Gwynne Pugh Urban Studio

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2015

Article source: Gwynne Pugh Urban Studio

In any major city, there are certain areas that become, or have always been, rough around the edges, driving residents away and contributing to a sense of urban decay. Whether through neglect, a shift in demographics, a change in the local economy, or other market forces, these areas become not just an eyesore, but a blight on the neighborhood. And so it was with a section of town in East Long Beach, California, which had deteriorated to the point of being a place that most residents of the city actively avoided.

Waschhaus in Andechs, Germany by BUERO WAGNER

Sunday, December 20th, 2015

Article source: BUERO WAGNER

One of the oldest pilgrimage sites in Bavaria can be found on the east bank of the Ammersee, the monastery Andechs. As a commodity of the Benedictine abbey Saint Bonifaz in Munich, the monastery ensures the financial basis of the abbey’s pastoral, social and cultural work – according to the credo “ora et labora – pray and work.” With the renovation of the estate’s old washhouse, located between Florianstadl and the butchery, the workshop, laundry and monastery distillery, which are accommodated inside the building, could be modernized and reorganized according to their current requirements.

Stanley Residence in Ontario, Canada by DPAI Architecture Inc

Sunday, December 20th, 2015

Article source: DPAI Architecture Inc

This new private residence In Hamilton, ON communicates that a new and sustainable form can be invented while highlighting and celebrating the neighbourhood’s historical legacy. The house celebrates and reminds us of the social importance of the front porch. Its material palette is chose to be deliberately commensurate with established patterns. The form of the carport and absence of an enclosed garage increases the likelihood of spontaneous contact between neighbours in the few seconds between car and front door. The house is respectful to the context from within as well.
