Feyenoord City in Rotterdam, The Netherlands by OMA

Friday, June 2nd, 2017

Article source: OMA

A historically significant stadium due to its distinctive design, with the oval stands positioned close to the pitch so audience and players are in intimate proximity, De Kuip is known for its unique and intense atmosphere. Built 80 years ago, the current stadium of Rotterdam-based football club Feyenoord no longer fulfills modern demands. To facilitate the football club’s expanding ambitions both in the national and European football leagues, multiple plans for a new and renovated stadium have been made and presented over the past decade, none of which received final approval. In 2016, Operatie NL, OMA and Feyenoord proposed a different approach: the construction of a new stadium combined with the development of the surrounding neighborhood.

CENTRO*Arezzo Coop.fi in Florence, Italy by Piuarch

Sunday, May 28th, 2017

Article source: Piuarch

An iconic urban landmark, but also a sustainable structure for an evolving shopping experience: the new CENTRO*Arezzo Coop.fi frees itself from the conceptual dictates of the traditional shopping mall and acts as a social and recreation pole that is perfectly integrated with the city. Opened in 1988, the complex has undergone a significant aesthetic and functional redevelopment that has completely changed its identity and its relationship with the surrounding environment.

Kimsclinic in Gyeonggi-do, South Korea by Wise Architecture

Wednesday, May 24th, 2017

Article source: MasilWIDE

What shape of life can an architect suggest to people in a new town in which apartment complexes will be built? The location is the community living area in Gimpo Newtown. The building will be used for a neighbor hospital and other businesses, and we had an expectation that this building would be an open-space in such dense region.

High Street South in Manila, Philippines by CAZA Architects

Thursday, May 18th, 2017

Article source: CAZA Architects

Activating the cultural center of Manila’s Bonifacio Global City, CAZA’s design for the High Street South project fuses the neighborhood, district, and urban scales of the master plan around a spine that functions as a network for public spaces. Borrowing from the geological notion of stratification, CAZA created multiple layers of public space that weave together circulation, culture, recreation and event spaces through a collection of hybridized mixed-use towers. Tower typologies are informed by striated levels that include public spaces of mobility and retail at the ground level; semi-private spaces for recreation and amenities; and private residential spaces with urban villas, terraced apartments, and loft units. With the facades’ playfully idiosyncratic grid patterns that correspond to these layers of tower typology, CAZA has designed a family of unique towers that share a unifying visual language and create a gracefully moving texture against the Manila skyline.

Bogotá Centro in Colombia by CAZA Architects

Wednesday, May 17th, 2017

Article source: CAZA Architects

The largest single urban intervention to date in Bogotá, this master plan has the potential to reimagine the way Bogotanos relate to their city. The 72-hectare site revisits the idea of compactness and diversity in the city through the creation of districts within a network of intermediate public parks, each with its own family of mixed-used buildings that in turn define shared private open spaces. Informed by typological research into existing forms of collective housing in Colombia and an analysis of the street grids of the surrounding neighborhoods, the master plan proposes a framework for action. The design acknowledges the reality of Bogotá as a shifting urban territory and proposes a finely articulated spatial strategy of built and unbuilt zones that enables growth and development.

MM Mixed-Use Complex in Manila, Philippines by CAZA

Sunday, May 14th, 2017

Article source: CAZA

For this urban complex, CAZA envisioned a lively mixed-use environment  that would accommodate luxury condominiums and a three-story  commercial center at the base. Informed by the exterior verandas and  courtyards, new dramatic sky terraces surmount the building, extending  a vertical sanctuary amidst the horizontal density of the Malate  district. CAZA’s design sustains a non-decorative, early-modernist  approach while forging a neoteric voice through a progression of  innovative interventions.
