Podčetrtek Traffic Circle in Podčetrtek, Slovenia by ENOTA Architects

Wednesday, February 6th, 2013

Article source: ENOTA Architects

The Podčetrtek Traffic Circle is built on a regional road located between the municipal sports hall with open-air sports grounds on one side and a spa centre with numerous swimming pools and hotels on the other side. It is primarily intended to slow down the traffic in this consequently very busy area as the main accesses to both complexes also connect to the traffic circle. The design of the roundabout’s central island thus references the appearance of both facilities and marks the entrance points to the destinations of the visitors to either of the programme centers.

D1 Canopy Design in Dubai creek, UAE by Innovarchi

Tuesday, September 25th, 2012

Article source:  Innovarchi

D1 is an 80 storey & residential tower on the shore of Dubai Creek in the UAE. It is to be one of the showpieces of a new development area called “the Culture Village”. There are two main components of the development, the glass tower itself and an elegant timber canopy screen at the base. For the overall tower design Sunland was inspired by the Sydney Olympic Torch and the Q1 tower on the Gold Coast in Australia. Innovarchi was asked to re-design the facades to emphasise the sheer nature of the layered glass curtain wall. Like the petals of a rose, the primary façades are conceived as a series of delicate layers to protect against the harsh environment. The façade layers are continuous, monolithic, smooth and seamless, without texture.

Velodrome in Culiacan, Mexico by Bunker Arquitectura

Friday, September 21st, 2012

Article source: Emelio Barjau

Professional cycling has developed enormously in the State of Sinaloa, Mexico, in the last decade.  Several international star athletes have brought attention to the sport, fueled by Olympic victories and enthusiastic press.  Consequently there is an interest in building Culiacan´s new velodrome, as well as incorporating policies that favor cycling as a mode of transportation into the city’s plans for new public spaces.  Our vision channels this newfound enthusiasm for cycling into a single thread that unites a professional sports building with a cycling-oriented park development.

‘SEAT’ Public Pavilion in Freedom Park at Atlanta, GA by E/B Office (Yong Ju Lee and Brian Brush)

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

Article source: E/B Office

Sitting is perhaps the most common condition from which we experience architecture. Whether we work, relax, watch, eat, sleep, or talk to each other, sitting is at the core of our relationship to buildings. Sitting enables the detached observation of our lives in space and time, whether it’s to look upon the buildings we inhabit, or look out from them, towards the cultural milieu that surrounds. Sitting enables a perception of the other and beyond opposite the inclusivity and interiority of our personal spaces that we carry with us. It conditions a cosmological covenant between one’s body and one’s place in architecture. It produces a body space continuum. Sitting structures our habitable spaces from within to without, determining the proportions of useable objects, forms, spaces, dimensions, and relationships in an unfolding sequence of architectonic layers.

Hashi Mori in Berlin, Germany by Affect Studio

Saturday, July 21st, 2012

Article source: Affect Studio

Located in the heart of Berlin, this newly completed izakaya restaurant combines traditional Japanese materials and hand craft with 3D modeling and computer programming to form an atmospheric space for dining. Responding to the client’s wishes for a cozy space that establishes a visual identity for the restaurant while also maximizing table count, the entire design intervention is achieved without the use of a single wall. A 56 sq meter ceiling installation serves as the main design feature of the restaurant.
By using the chopstick as a simple, repeating element, the project creates an immersive and highly intimate canopy over the space.

Jacob’s Ladder in Brooklyn, New York by BanG studio

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

Article source: BanG studio

In conjunction with their participation in American Express’ Partners in Preservation program, Congregation Beth Elohim in Brooklyn has commissioned BanG studio to design, fabricate, and erect an art installation inside the synagogue’s main sanctuary. The given theme of the piece is Jacob’s Ladder reflecting the synagogue’s special connection to the story.
In Genesis, Jacob stops for the night en route from the house of his father, Isaac to Paddan-aram. He dreams of a ladder set upon the earth and stretching to heaven. In his dream, angels ascend and descend the ladder. God appears to Jacob promising the land on which he sleeps to him and his descendants. When Jacob awakens he realizes that, “surely the Lord is in this place, and I did not know it.”

Re-Imagining Seward Park Redevelopment (SPURA) on the Lower East Side, New York

Recent news coverage for the 7-acre parcel, Manhattan’s biggest undeveloped,  publicly owned development site south of 96th Street, has provided the chance to contemplate many important urban issues.

Firstly, are we taking full advantage of this great opportunity to develop a vast land in the heart of Manhattan, or just limiting our imagination under current NYC zoning resolution (which is 50 years old)? Secondly, is the hot debate over big box retailers heading to the right direction?
