12 degrees was designed as an urban infill project, fitting into the context of a mixed use residential area where the city block has buildings that include both the Art Gallery of Ontario and the Ontario College of Art and Design.
Given the artistic nature of the city block, the design became a playful exercise in massing and an anchor to the south-west corner of the block. The design can be read as analogous to the stacking of toy blocks, with one of the blocks skewed at 12 degrees from the others.

The Da Vinci College in Roosendaal, in the south of the Netherlands, moved into new premises at the start of the present school year. Ector Hoogstad Architects has designed a light, spacious and above all adventurous building that feels and functions like a city in miniature. The school offers a mix of academic and vocational qualifications (VMBO and Praktijkschool in Dutch) to about a thousand pupils. Each pupil has a home base in one of the “clubhouses” scattered around the school, alongside a variety of practical rooms and communal facilities. All these spaces are ingeniously connected by a network of streets, squares and gardens, stairs and terraces. In line with the philosophy of the school, equal weight is attached to ensuring a safe learning environment and challenging the pupils.

Faculty of Agricultural Sciences and Technologies consists of four departments, classrooms, lecture rooms, laboratories and social facilities. The project aims to unite theoretical and practical education via its architectural approach by interweaving the buildings and the applied agricultural land into each other. Agricultural landscape continues throughout the building and unites indoor and outdoor areas. Students not only work in laboratories for practical education, but they also work on land with seeds and seedlings for various researches. This approach defines landscape as a crucial part of daily life in the faculty and places the buildings around a courtyard as its core. While the landscape enables experimental agriculture, it also allows different plants in different seasons to become landscape elements for the building. The courtyard, while maximizing the natural ventilation and lighting, also becomes a social gathering space for students.

Situated on an extremely narrow site with eucalyptus trees along its southern & eastern edge, Gottesman-Szmelcman Architecture’s design of the Faculties of Psychology & Economics Building at the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya (IDC) reflects several key considerations: a commitment to “green” architecture; a desire to create clear and dynamic relationships between architecture and its surrounding; and a commitment to effectively and harmoniously incorporate carefully defined functions within each building.

From its earliest inception, Carleton College’s Weitz Center for Creativity was imagined as much more than an arts building. While it does create much-needed new exhibit and performance spaces, the Weitz Center’s true mission is to serve as a working laboratory for creativity—not only in the arts, but across the entire curriculum. It positions the College as a national leader in arts programs by creating an environment that fosters creativity, critical thinking, collaborative working skills, and cross-cultural exploration. An adaptive reuse of and addition to a former middle school, the new Weitz Center for Creativity houses the departments of studio arts, dance and theater, and cinema and media studies.

In the Middle Ages, Bruges had two big ambitions: to have a sea port and a university, fine ambitions that the magnificent old city could barely realize despite its many efforts. During history Antwerp and Ghent took over the leading roles in those matters and Bruges became during three centuries ‘Bruges la morte’. However at the end of the 20th century Bruges is the 3rd seaport of the BENELUX, and in 2009 the VIVES University College was built, associated to the well known ‘University of Louvain’.
