Greenhouse Botanical Garden in Grueningen, Switzerland by idA

Sunday, November 10th, 2013

Article source: idA 

The new pavilion at the botanical garden at Grueningen relates strongly to its context. The design was inspired by the surrounding forest, not the built environment. Both the formal vocabulary and the structural concept derive from nature. The pavilion is conceived to harmonize with and expand the forest.

ReForm of Garden in Ikoma, Nara by SPACESPACE

Saturday, November 2nd, 2013

Article source: SPACESPACE

This site is situated at a residential area in Ikoma-city, Nara where is little colder in winter compared to the inner-city of Osaka. But it shares a border with Osaka and the residents can commute in only 30 minutes, so it functions as a bedroom suburb of both Osaka and Nara. This area is a typical suburban residential area of Japan and designed to satisfy the orthodox practices of city planning. The inner road and the building distance are wide enough and each house has the southern garden.

THE GARDEN OF FORKING PATHS by Beals + Lyon Architects

Saturday, August 31st, 2013

Article source: Beals + Lyon Architects

Nowadays, being always online, connected and available, mobile technology has mostly erased any space for leisure and quietness. If we compare the ‘Flanèur’ -the bohemian, daydreamer or cultured person who had time to stroll in the city- with the ‘Commuter’, the person who has to travel every day from home to work with the pressure to convert that time into a productive space, it is possible to see that what is lacking is really that space and time ‘in between’, now converted as an imperative space for production by modern society. The otherwise ‘unproductive gaps’ somehow need to be filled.

Aluminum Flower Garden in Tokyo, Japan by MORIYUKI OCHIAI ARCHITECTS / TWOPLUS-A

Thursday, July 18th, 2013


During the course of planning the layout for the HANA (Japanese for “flower”) restaurant / bar and event space, we were challenged to come up with a concept that would evoke the floral imagery of the establishment’s eponymous name.

In a country with limited resources such as Japan, the spirit of Monodzukuri is the epitome of ingenuity at the service of craftsmanship.

LA ESTANCIA CHAPEL in Cuernavaca, Mexico by Bunker Arquitectura

Saturday, July 6th, 2013

Article source: Bunker Arquitectura

La Estancia Wedding Gardens were conceived in a traditional Mexican baroque colonial style. When one of Bunker’s associates decided to marry here it was made known to us that the owners had been toying for some time with the idea of building a chapel in the same style as their gardens, since all previous weddings took place under a light canvas canopy roof. They found very romantic the idea of an architect designing the chapel he would marry in so the commission was granted to us.
