Sunday, April 16th, 2017

Article source: OMA

The Pierre Lassonde Pavilion—the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec’s fourth building is interconnected yet disparate—is a subtly ambitious, even stealthy, addition to the city. Rather than creating an iconic imposition, it forms new links between the park and the city, and brings coherence to the MNBAQ.

G.Zanella Primary School Renovation and Extension in Villafranca ( VR), Italia by GDA officina di architettura

Thursday, April 13th, 2017

Article source: GDA officina di architettura 

The project area is located in the outskirts of Villafranca and Verona, between the urban core and the agricultural land.

The more distinctive presence is  the “strada della Rizza” around which is structured the small village Rizza,  that’s  a quite busy output axis of Verona.

The new building is designed as a reconstruction and expansion of a previously existing one  lying parallel to the “strada della Rizza”  and looks like an inhabited wall that protects the school from the nearby road. For this reason, it present a 3,5m high basement in concrete without any window that look like an infrastructure’s construction.

House with Villa Silhouette in Lyttleton, New Zealand by Irving Smith Architects

Thursday, January 5th, 2017

Article source: Irving Smith Architects

House with Villa Silhouette

A house after the Christchurch quakes. One creative home comes down, another goes up, the new silhouetting the old, reminding, resettling, providing lineage.

Where the former villa sat square and inward, the new layers out across the southern view, shaping to the silhouette for light, and framing a greater appreciation of the everyday.
