Danish architecture studio CEBRA has completed a pioneering project for a new type of 24-hour care centre for marginalized children and teenagers in Kerteminde, Denmark. The tile and wood cladded building plays with familiar elements and shapes to create a homely environment in a modern building that focuses on the residents’ special needs. The Children’s Home of the Future combines the traditional home’s safe environment with new pedagogical ideas and conceptions of what a modern children’s home is and which needs it should fulfil.

A shipbuilder’s company housing on a cliff that views beautiful and calm Seto Inland Sea, where small islands float. This project is expected to revitalize a local industrial city while serving as comfortable accommodations for 37 families. On the roof that extends from ground level uphill, the rooftop plaza, a rare public space in the hilly town spreads.

The urban space is created by Danish POLYFORM Architects and Dutch landscape architects Karres en Brands and has received a warm welcome from the Copenhageners. At the opening event the museum set a new visitor record as almost 8.000 people celebrated the city’s new artsy urban space.

At the time when Seattle wonders what course to follow for a lasting transformation on public spaces, the [in]-closure project puts itself as the mainspring of the urban revival for the next five decades. Slow decision-making processes increased by fast practice changes and modern means of communication as globalized dematerialization implies that, nowadays, traditional urban planning methods are reaching the limit. You can plan an urban project; it will be obsolete even before seeing the light.

Thomas Bedaux of Bedaux de Brouwer Architecten designed this single family residence for his family on the edge of a residential area in Tilburg, the Netherlands. Recent changes in the zoning plan yielded a previously non existing lot that is situated at the intersection of three distinctly different worlds. These worlds, an existing block of row houses from the 1950’s, farm land with roaming sheep and an active cemetery, provided unique opportunities that informed the design.

CEBRA has completed a public sports facility in the Danish town of Løgstør based on the office’s“Meccano concept” for unheated, low-cost and lightweight sports halls. The concept uses construction principles and elements otherwise known from industrial buildings and warehouses – that is standardised off-the-shelf components. The idea is that these simple elements can be refined and combined in new and surprising ways – just like the Meccano model construction system – in order to create architecturally appealing, accessibleand easily adaptable sports facilities, which are cheap to build and maintain. The concept has been developed in collaboration with LokaleogAnlægsfonden (the Danish Foundation for Culture and Sports Facilities).

The original concept rises out of the major basis about color, and is that this cannot be taught or described. People are born with a special sense of color. Based on this idea, our intention was to create a facade out of the color model used in all printing systems, CMYK (Cyan , Magenta , Yellow and Key) for their best adaptation in manufacturing facilities. Parting from this initial palette we achieved a fresh effect with an organized structure that at some point breaks with the inclination angles of these colored stripes, changing the lineal effect of the material used in other facades of the building, compensating the lack of color and also maintaining the same visual effect of the vertical lines of the current material.

Topology of Resilience
On November 9, 2013 the devastating Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines, causing more than 5,000 deaths and destroying the homes and cities of millions. Natural disasters due to climate change have become extremely commonplace all over the world. We can’t do much to stop them, but as architects we can help design and build stronger and more resilient buildings to withstand them. As part of a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) by OOAc in support of the Typhoon Haiyan victims, the objective of this project is to generate a design concept for a typhoon-resilient school to be implemented in the affected area of the Philippines, where sadly over 4,500 schools have been destroyed by the massive storm.
