IKC de Geluksvogel in Maastricht, The Netherlands by UArchitects

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

Article source: UArchitects

This a unique sustainable and digital school in the Netherlands.

Two existing schools in two neighbouring locations in Maastricht are merging into a new school on a new location in that city. This particular location was chosen to strengthen the weak social structure of the two neighbourhoods and to introduce a new digital education system to learn also more about the environment, nature and sustainability. Even the playground outside has different zones to help children (re)discover nature and explore their world by means of experiments or to build and test objects.

The school is located on square land in the perimeter of the town in an area of potential development.  The building stands alone in a isolated area, limited by an avenue, that is buried beneath the school and fields.

The building design is a comb framework facing onto the future plaza, (for school weekly access and weekend public use) and inside you will find the administration office, kitchen, dining room and gym.  The two perpendicular wings are on one and two floors respectively, where the classrooms are located for kindergarten and primary.

Ancona School Gymnasium in Illinois by JGMA

Friday, June 23rd, 2017

Article source: JGMA

Within the constraints of an otherwise non-descript box, design studio JGMA has inventively designed an attractive and engaging transformation that provides a constrained space with multi-functional capacity, while reinforcing the identity of a visionary school. Working on a small renovation budget, the Ancona School in Chicago’s southside Hyde Park had been fighting loud reverberating acoustics and harsh lighting in their undersized gymnasium, making use of the space nearly unbearable. The room is much smaller than any typical gym–a retro-fit holdover from an out-dated 1960’s construction–but it houses many of the school’s primary athletic functions and is the only school space large enough for family gatherings and school performances.

Torre Bicentenario in Mexico City by OMA

Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

Article source: OMA 

Compared with the world’s other economically ascendant regions such as Asia and the Middle East, Latin America has a skyscraper deficit. Poised to harness the economic and symbolic potential of the Bicentennial, Mexico City will celebrate a historic moment with the emergence of a new skyscraper, the Torre Bicentenario. In an architectural age defined by the pursuit of expression at all costs, the Torre Bicentenario is building whose unique form is responsive rather than frivolous; a building whose form facilitates rather than complicates its use: the stacking of two pyramidal forms produces a building simultaneously familiar and unexpected, historic yet visionary.

Black Box Gym in JingJuSi, China by Horus Architectural Design (HAD) & Epos Architects

Wednesday, March 29th, 2017

Article source: Horus Architectural Design (HAD) & Epos Architects

Viewed from the street, the Black Box Gym appeared to be white! The project is formed by a group of open white boxes, harmoniously situated in an unused land of an aging urban community. It features steel beam-to-column, corrugated steel and perforated steel plates, which are widely applied in temporary architecture. The gym provides fitness facilities and space for people nearby. At night, it emits light through glasses and perforated steel plates, injecting new life into the dreary block. It is an eye-catching center of vitality, while at the same time it integrates harmoniously with the surroundings.
