Shifting Tapestry in Boston, USA by Ground Inc

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013

Article source: Ground Inc

A project that delights in the textural complexity of simple materials.

This design for the garden of a single family residence responds to the challenges of a small urban site by using the textural and ephemeral qualities of the materials to breathe life into the space. The spatially simple design creates outdoor living spaces with a sense of privacy, while the interplay of the materials – light, foliage, and grain – creates a rich layer of experience that shifts over time.

Kic Park in Shanghai, China by 3GATTI Architecture Studio

Wednesday, January 16th, 2013

Article source: 3GATTI Architecture Studio

Kik Park is a leftover urban area that Francesco Gatti is surprised to see has escaped being built-up and which is positioned at the entrance to the Kic Village, constructed in recent years for the students at the nearby universities of Fudan and Tongji.  Since 2005 when the Italian architect transferred part of his professional activities to China he has recurrently been interested in the possibility of designing interstice spaces – as in the case of the In Factory JingAn Six Loft Buildings (2006), where the outside areas of the redevelopment project were treated on a par with a residential and work environment.

St. Horto in Rome, Italy by OFL Architecture

Thursday, January 3rd, 2013

Article source: OFL Architecture

The project stems from the idea of creating a perfect synergy between architecture, nature and social technologies Jardimpu (Arduino and Paraimpu).

The name “St. Horto” is a pun, between Italian and English language. The two words “Horto” and “St” give at the same time the idea of a sacred, intimate garden and of something crooked, apparently disordered but full of life, just like a plant. Together they represent the irregular geometry (crooked or oblique) but highly controlled architectural design of the garden.

Friday, November 9th, 2012

Article source: Ingarden & Ewy Architekci

The building of the Małopolska Garden of Arts (MGA) has been realized according to a competition-winning design by Ingarden & Ewy Architects. The program and the initiative of establishing this new cultural institution in Kraków was proposed in the year 2004, by Krzysztof Orzechowski, Director of the Juliusz Słowacki Theatre and Janusz Sepioł, at the time the Marshal of the Małopolska Voivodeship. It is no coincidence that the building was raised in the vicinity of ul. Karmelicka – a street popular with students and locals alike – opposite the building of the public library, with the aim of ensuring its smooth inclusion into the “bloodstream” of the city.

The Secret Garden in Tavazzano Con Villavesco (Lodi), Italy by Tomas Ghisellini Architects

Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

Article source: Tomas Ghisellini Architects

The expansion of the cemetery in Tavazzano con Villavesco experiences a new relationship between the city of the living and the places of the dead, creating a novel and interesting link between landscape and funerary architecture. The project actively builds the atmosphere of a park-cemetery, where all the individualistic exaggerations, typically connected to traditional Latin models, are replaced by a widespread, gentle, someway \”domestic\” monumentality.
