Sluishuis Housing Development in Amsterdam, The Netherlands by BIG – Bjarke Ingels Group

Thursday, January 5th, 2017

Article source: BIG – Bjarke Ingels Group

Located between the dense city and the vast landscapes on the edge of Amsterdam, the new Sluishuis is shaped by its complex surroundings at once close to large infrastructure and to small-scale urban settlements. The classical courtyard building is revitalized by two transformations; it fully embraces the idea of living on the water and appears different from every vantage point. Toward the water the block is lifted up, forming a large opening that brings water from the IJ Lake into the courtyard and brings daylight and views to the complex’s inner apartments. Toward the neighboring urban district the block steps down like a cascade of landscaped terraces, creating a natural transition from cityscape to smaller-scale, natural surroundings. “Having spent my formative years as an architect in Holland at the end of the 20th century, it feels like a homecoming to now get to contribute to the architecture of the city that I have loved and admired for so long. Our Sluishuis is conceived as a city block of downtown Amsterdam floating in the IJ Lake, complete with all aspects of city life. Towards the city, the courtyard building kneels down to invite visitors to climb its roof and enjoy the panoramic view of the new neighborhoods on the IJ. Toward the water, the building rises from the river, opening a gigantic gate for ships to enter and dock in the port/yard. A building inside the port, with a port inside the building.” Bjarke Ingels, Founding Partner, BIG. A promenade with public programs winds around the building and continues into the water, forming an archipelago of islands with houseboats, a sailing school, and floating gardens. A public passage climbs the cascading terraces of the building, serving as a small rooftop street that eventually loops onto the very top of the building to create a viewing platform over the IJ Lake. The passage will not only create a destination for visitors and neighbors, but will connect the residential units to each other and create a unique three-dimensional community between the residents of the building.   “The world famous urban environment of Amsterdam was created by the fusion of water and city. The new Sluishuis is born of the same DNA, merging water and perimeter block and expanding the possibilities for urban lifeforms around the IJ.” Andreas Klok Pedersen, Partner, BIG. The silhouette of Sluishuis will change as one moves around the building. At one vantage point it appears as the bow of a ship that reflects the water below; at another a vertical green community that invites visitors to engage directly with it; and finally as a true urban block with street access and city liveliness that is to be enjoyed by residents, neighbors, and the rest of Amsterdam.

Moai Building in Seoul, Korea by L’eau Design

Sunday, December 25th, 2016

Article source: L’eau Design

Easter Island has almost been erased from history as it has no clear documentation of its past. Mysterious Moai statues are the only evidence of civilization. I gained a similar impression of Samjeon-dong, Seoul. Modern Moai at Samjeon-dong began with the consideration of a symbiotic structure for a city, including housing created by stacking commercial facilities and residential units on the everyday cultural ground.

Enclave at the Cathedral in New York by HANDEL ARCHITECTS LLP

Thursday, December 22nd, 2016

Article source: HANDEL ARCHITECTS LLP

The Enclave at the Cathedral is a new residential development located on the property of Manhattan’s Cathedral of St. John the Divine. The Cathedral and its surrounding gardens and buildings form an 11.3-acre campus collectively referred to as “The Close.” The new residences sit on the site that formerly housed stone sheds used by skilled masons to cut the granite used to construct the Cathedral. Given the proximity of the new building to the Cathedral, the siting, massing, and design of the building were critical.

145 housing units + FAM + PMI in Paris, France by Avenier Cornejo Architectes

Wednesday, December 21st, 2016

Article source: Avenier Cornejo Architectes

Jumps of scale to understand the place

The site is integrated into the multi-urban network of Paris, the Grande Couronne and major green spaces and infrastructure networks. The ZAC Clichy-Batignolles is perceived as a new landscape of connection, a wide-open urban door along the major territorial arches towards the historic city.

The site becomes an important urban platform, an exchange node inserted into the system of great Parisian relational spaces. It holds a role of transition between different scales, them being territorial, urban, environmental, social, cultural, and infrastructure standpoints. The ZAC thus acts as a device of resonance and multi-district transfer.

Krieau.viertel zwei plus in Vienna, Austria by HOLODECK architects

Tuesday, December 20th, 2016

Article source: HOLODECK architects

The concept of urban development is based on the landscape of open spaces with trees (historical Prater landscape) and the building units positioned in it. The sequence of built-up and undeveloped space is the result of the rhythm of several parameters including: spatial edges, rough-determining distances, orientation and interspaces. Due to the bridge connections in airy heights, eye-to-eye connections are maintained and a diversified movement with different room coverings along the lively ground floor zone is given. Places, meadows, landscapes accompany the residents, users and visitors on the fast way through or during a leisurely walk through the district of Zwei Plus. The difference between open spaces and differently equipped places takes place in addition to the adjacent buildings and the surroundings. Use: car parking, green campus with offices, dormitories and residential studios.
