Ada-and-Theodor-Lessing Adult Education Centre in Hanover, Germany by ahrens & grabenhorst architekten stadtplaner BDA

Friday, July 7th, 2017

Article source: ahrens & grabenhorst architekten stadtplaner BDA

The new school ensemble of the Adult Education Centre in Hanover, Germany, consists of four elements. The three existing building components of the former School for the Hearing Impaired were closed by a new building attached to the existing volume, thus forming a cuboid. It then results in a roofed patio that can be used as a meeting space, for gatherings, or events. The patio presents the lively heart of the ensemble.

TREC – Training Recreation Education Center in Newark, New Jersey by ikon.5 architects

Thursday, April 27th, 2017

Article source: v2com

The City of Newark has long struggled to come back from the brink since losing its industrial base in the 1950s, which resulted in decreased city revenue, increased unemployment, deplorable housing conditions and ultimately fueled the 1967 riots. Since that time, the city has attempted several “comebacks” floating a host of broad-brush proposals for renewal many of which failed. Today cities are trying a different tact, finding seeds of hope and renewal in incremental rather than sweeping-change, embarking on small scaled, targeted projects led by architects capable of bringing to these ‘wicked problems’ fresh ideas and innovative approaches in the hope of jumpstarting communities in need.

Óscar Romerocollege in Dendermonde, Belgium by De Jong Gortemaker Algra Architects

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

Article source: De Jong Gortemaker Algra Architects

The south side of the Óscar Romerocollege borders on the historical inner city of Dendermonde. The patchwork sequence of courtyards and streets is typical of this location. Two college buildings have already been built. A further two buildings – a tuition building and a sports complex – will be added and are intended to strengthen the school’s identity. We have extended this objective to include a connection to the historic centre. A connection that has been created by blending into the structure of the public spaces. The existing courtyards have been extended to include two new courtyards and a promenade. The four school buildings, each of which has its own individual appearance, create a powerful rhythm on the north side. This is where the main entrance is located. A covered path connects the existing and new buildings and takes the students past the different courtyards, each of which has its own function and identity.

Arcus Center For Social Justice Leadership at Kalamazoo College in Michigan by Studio Gang Architects

Friday, April 14th, 2017

Article source: Studio Gang Architects 

Historically, convening for social justice has taken place in informal settings—a church basement, a living room, or even around a kitchen table.

The Arcus Center for Social Justice Leadership brings these discussions up from the basement and squarely into public consciousness.

The Cervantes Institute in Brussels, Belgium by Carlos Arroyo Architects

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

Article source: Carlos Arroyo Architects

Compact and Flexible

One of the major challenges of the project was to combine at the ground floor level the required flexibility for a multifunctional and public space, and allowing at the same time the possibility to locate 30.000 books of the library. The system proposed to solve this issue was a three-dimensional version of the Cervantes Institute Logo. Orthogal geometries created by thick red lines which limit undefined spaces. One can move between this lines full of books and spend some time sitting on the benches located on the hallways or going out to wider spaces to enjoy the lecture at the café. The books work also as a storefront background. The activities allocated in this floor are visible from the street as a way to highlight its public essence. A domestic library, a coffee hall, a multifunctional space with stands or the information displayed on the monitors.

UAH campus in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam by Truong An architecture + UAH Department of Architecture

Sunday, March 12th, 2017

Article source: TRUONG AN architecture

University of Architecture, Ho Chi Minh City (UAH) was founded in 1951 in the center of Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) formerly known as Saigon at address 196 Pasteur street, district 03, HCMC. Sixty-five years ago, the university was a school which had a closed relationship with French École des Beaux-Arts. Until now, UAH has been developing rapidly from a small architecture school to become a university with many departments and subjects including architecture, urban planning, interior design, industrial design, structural engineering and infrastructural technology. At the moment, the university has welcomed more 8,000 students of all years and courses. A huge number of students is really a challenge for the capacity of the existing university campus. This problem leaded to a vital need of the new additional construction of UAH in Thu Duc district, HCMC. The campus building was opened officially in 2015.

Tel Aviv University Lorry Lokey Management Building in Israel by Gottesman – Szmelcman Architecture

Friday, March 3rd, 2017

Article source: Gottesman – Szmelcman Architecture 

Located on the 200-acre Tel Aviv University campus, the choice of location for the new Lorry Lokey building  was driven by the need to be near the existing Recanati building but it offers the opportunity to influence and address several issues that may contribute to the enrichment and urban coherence of the campus. Sufficiently high to enjoy both the western vista and Mediterranean sea breeze, Gottesman-Szmelcman Architecture chose to split the building into two interconnecting elements. The proposed scheme offers the architects an opportunity to better insulate functions and accommodate a phased construction if need be. Gottesman-Szmelcman Architecture discovered that the splitting the building will enable both a lower and higher entrance and encourage the linking of the adjoining buildings through the respective levels and gardens.
