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.

CEIP RAIGUERO DE BONANZA in ORIHUELA, ALICANTE, SPAIN by MACLA Arquitectos

Saturday, June 15th, 2013

Article source: MACLA Arquitectos

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.

Friday, June 7th, 2013

Article source: Latitude Studio  

In large industry structures, the construction of the industrial building is based on logistic, distribution and volumetric requirements determined by the production. It is one of the few building types whose value is measured more in terms of equipment assets than how it performs as social infrastructure.

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.
