Transforming King’s Cross in London, UK by John Mcaslan + Partners

Sunday, March 18th, 2012

Article source: John Mcaslan + Partners

The new Western Concourse at King’s Cross opens to the public on Monday 19th March 2012. “The transformation of King’s Cross station by John McAslan + Partners represents a compelling piece of place-making for London. The show-piece is clearly the Western Concourse – Europe’s largest single span station structure and the heart of the development, but the overall project is far more complex: an extraordinary, collaborative effort that has delivered an internationally significant transport interchange, fit for the 21st century and beyond. We are very proud of our role as lead architects and master-planners of the King’s Cross redevelopment, and it’s immensely satisfying to see the project delivered on time, ready for the capital’s celebration of the London Olympics later this year.”

Isleta Tribal Services Complex in Pueblo of Isleta, New Mexico by Rohde May Keller McNamara Architecture

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

Article source: Rohde May Keller McNamara Architecture

“Rhythm in Steel as an Aesthetic Experience”

Established in the 14th century, Isleta Pueblo maintains strong ties to traditional values. The Tribal Services Complex is located in the foothills between the Rio Grande Bosque and Manzano Mountains, and is strategically placed in a natural depression, flanked by two preserved promontories. The complex co-locates Fire, Police, E911, Courts, Council, Administration, Wellness and Vehicle Fleet. Lower levels house public safety and tribal leadership, while the upper plaza level/s serve public needs. The architectural imprint acknowledges an ephemeral existence – to blend harmoniously with the land through time. The aim was to create a sense of unity around a center and acknowledge tradition:

    gathering (proto-urban assemblages around a “middle place”)
    alignment (sun, moon, sacred directions)
    harmony with natural surroundings (earth-water-air-fire-spiritual)
    prehistory (function & belief based architectural chronology)
