Luminous Moon-Gate was designed in 2013 for the Taichung City Cultural Center International Competition. The design intent behind the proposed project hints at multiple interpretative roles for Taichung: a portal into heightened consciousness, a lantern of knowledge, a catalyst for metropolitan living, a cultural lung for the body of the city, a gate toward a responsible future, a center regenerative of community life, a landmark for orientation.

THE PINCH is a library and community center in Shuanghe Village, Yunnan Province, China. The project is part of a government led reconstruction effort after an earthquake in Sept 2012. The majority of village houses were destroyed, leaving the residents living in tents for up to one year. After the earthquake the government has sponsored new concrete and brick houses and a large central plaza. During the first site visit, the houses remained incomplete and the plaza was a large empty site.

The project includes the People’s National Assembly, the National Council (Senate), the Chamber (Congress), and a residence for legislators.
Algeria’s new parliament is a project that must meet the highest standards.
The building needs to embody the idea of democracy in action, the Algeria of the future, freedom, peace, strong but deliberative power. The architecture must communicate a distinct national identity founded on universal values.

In 2011, Zurich-based architects Frei + Saarinen won the competition to replace a “front building” that was damaged by a fire. The front-building is so called because it is attached to a triple gymnasium that is also used for events such as concerts, exhibitions, carnival, marriages (with up to 1000 guests), etc.

Clearly identifiable from the public space and the tram stop ( the tram line serves the area), the house of the Sardine district will be implanted in a highly developing area., between the new eco-friendly Artigon district and the existing suburban area.
The program is contained in a wood monolith, deformed to be adapted to street corners respecting the distances imposed by town planning regulations, and to fully benefit from all the views and the panorama. These spaces will be green areas and occupied by units integrating storage for bikes, rubbish bins, street lamps and technical lockers.
