The extension of the Perrache-Confluence substation in Lyon, France by rue royale architectes

Thursday, October 8th, 2015

Article source: Anne Rolland

A disappearing act

It is rare that architects summon up the notion of disappearing when designing their projects. The very essence of architecture is the exact opposite. It is there to be seen, displayed, to make an impression. Sometimes, a site dictates the need to adopt a strategy where things are buried or hidden. This programme, at the heart of the Confluence district in Lyon, was intended to renovate and extend an electrical substation, which led the architects to imagine ways of making the object disappear. The project took up the challenge of producing something that would actually fade from memory and vanish over time.

The Railway Site in Horsens, Denmark by AFR ThinkingUrban

Saturday, July 11th, 2015

Article source: AFR ThinkingUrban

All too often modern cities are divided up into single use zones like housing or education, or industry. Yet the most successful older communities throughout the world are almost all mixed uses. In addition, the way we move and interact in modern thinking is divided up into a kind of traffic apartheid – walking, cycling, driving.

Following the end of commercial mining in Alsdorf, the centrally-located industrial premises of coal mine „Anna“ will be converted into an attractive residential and commercial area which will include the “Anna Park“.  As part of the development,  we created a design concept to convert the mine‘s blacksmith and change&washroom buildings into “Energeticon” –  an exhibition designed by Stuttgart-based “Atelier Brueckner” focussing on energy-related topics – not only showcasing the history of mining but also allowing visitors to experience basic principles of energy and learn about trendsetting and forward-looking technologies.

Lampwork Lofts in Oakland, California by Levy Design Partners, Inc

Sunday, September 21st, 2014

Article source: Levy Design Partners, Inc 

This historically significant 4-story building, constructed of masonry bearing walls and heavy timber, occupies a rectangular 1.5 acre site at 1614 Campbell Street in Oakland, CA. Originally used as an incandescent light factory by General Electric (GE) and designed by the Austin Company, the building construction was completed between 1912 and 1917. The site continued under GE ownership in 1962 when the division closed. The 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake resulted in the destruction of a north bay of the west wing, not to be rebuilt in the rehabilitation project. The structure is noted for being the first industrial building on the West Coast to employ women.
