COUNTRY GARDEN FOREST CITY in Malaysia by LAVA

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

Article source: LAVA

LAVA has won 2nd prize in an international competition to design a new city in Malaysia.

LAVA’s concept sees the city defined not as one iconic building, nor as a skyline, but as a central public space, a real forest. Chris Bosse, director of LAVA, explains: “Skylines across the world look the same – usually a couple of iconic towers in the centre surrounded by lots of lesser quality buildings, which all resemble each other.” “Here we have designed an inverse city skyline where the icon of the city is a public space, not an object/building. Our central space is a Rainforest Valley and demonstrates the equation: PEOPLE = CITY. From an object to a place.”

Cultural Center of La Hague in France by PERIPHERIQUES MARIN+TROTTIN ARCHITECTES

Wednesday, March 8th, 2017

Article source: PERIPHERIQUES MARIN+TROTTIN ARCHITECTES

Building a cultural center in Beaumont-Hague, in Cotentin, means to integrate an architectural project that takes benefits from the landscape qualities of this piece of peninsula. On the shore, sunken roads are planted of wooded hedges that protects from the wind, and becomes vegetal vaults to filter the light over time. These landscape elements are secular forms from the site culture but also inspiring spaces that can be employed for the design.

UniCredit Pavilion in Milano, Italy by architetto Michele De Lucchi Srl

Thursday, March 2nd, 2017

Article source: architetto Michele De Lucchi Srl 

UniCredit has erected a multipurpose building to house the bank’s general meetings, but also exhibitions and cultural events open to the Milan public. It occupies a privileged position against the background of Porta Nuova, beneath the mirror-glazed tower and in a dialogue with the Porta Nuova public gardens. UniCredit Pavilion has no foundations, being constructed on a reinforced concrete podium above the parking facility. Its soft profile is inspired by the shape of a seed, and its materials are natural. A vertically ribbed cage with lamellar larch beams contains a glazed space and supports a rounded, solar panelled roof. The structure opens on the outside through two large wings, equipped with monitors for events open to the general public. Situated on the ground floor is a multipurpose auditorium adaptable to diverse configurations and with seating for 700. An overhead walkway runs along the outer edge of the building and can be used for temporary art exhibitions. On the first floor is a nursery for 50 toddlers, whilst the top level is occupied by a lounge for customer reception and corporate events.
