Metabolon by pier7 architekten

Thursday, October 1st, 2015

Article source: pier7 architekten

Does an artificial landscape need to be planted and thus, appear to be as close to a natural landscape as possible? No. To the contrary, this project shows awareness of the sites origin. It is a waste dump covered with a black skin that plainly offers plenty of space. The concept has been developed by FSWLA Landscape architects and pier7 architects as a collaborative proposal and the realisation of this highly original cultivation of garbage within the perfect world of Bergisches Land has been completed. Several temporary sites with diverse purposes have come into existence alongside, around and on top of the cone of garbage since. For example: learning places that are flexible for different programs, cafés, seminar- and production sites as well as exhibition venues for prototypic structures and various events more that have not been thought of, yet.

Urban Landscapes such as public spaces and parks are among the places that can enhance the quality of space in a city. Well-designed, attractive and innovative spaces contribute to a sense of place and can produce strong emotional responses.

REVELEY CLASSROOM BUILDING in Moscow, Idaho by Patano Studio Architecture

Wednesday, May 20th, 2015

Article source: Patano Studio Architecture

Initial site visits at the University of Idaho Pitkin Nursery revealed hoop houses, metal sheds and stacks of planter boxes. Beginning with the idea of a wood box floating on the undulating sea of the Palouse, the design team set out to stitch together the program, landscape and the materiality of Idaho forest products. The college wanted to extend their public outreach in addition to nursery research functions. The outstretched ramps and decks reach out to the landscape and invite the public and students to the building. The Sales Office was pulled through the wood screen as a way to express itself beyond the functions of classroom, offices, and social gathering. The weathering cedar wood screen that stands off the building was imagined as a modern western storefront. The repetition of stacked boxes was intriguing; we saw that as the piece that expressed the transition from working nursery to classroom. The cedar wood screen is the threshold element for faculty and students to step through the gap between the two elements; wood screen and black box.

The International Horticultural Exposition 2014 opened in Qingdao on April 25th; the two service centers, “Heavenly Water (Tianshui)” and “Earthy Pond (Dichi)”, are named after the two extant lakes on Baiguo Mountain where the buildings are respectively located.  As the primary architecture of the Expo area, the buildings undertook multiple functions including circulation hub, activity center, restaurant, recreational landscape, cultural communication, exhibition, etc.  Considering the distinctive nature of the architecture and its geographical location, the following unique relationships require particular design treatments.

Public park by DRAFTARCH

Saturday, May 9th, 2015

Article source: DRAFTARCH

Parco di Piantonia overlooks the valley of the Sporzana stream. Friedrich’s “Wanderer” observes the landscape in a sea of fog. The form of the design uses the relationship between the landscape and the existing trees: the path provides structure and divides up the green space, as far up as the viewpoint. A service block indicates the entrance announcing the route, while the rest areas lie alongside the path, complementing it. A route, a place to socialise, for children to play…

Garden Pavilion in Seattle, Washington by Robert Edson Swain Architecture + Design

Friday, April 24th, 2015

Article source: Robert Edson Swain Architecture + Design

Prospect and Refuge: A garden retreat that is hovering on the western slope of upper Queen Anne hill, and nested into the hillside. This retreat and gathering pavilion was imagined as a sculptural landscape element that could transform with the seasons and quickly change as the weather demands. Inspired by the impressive prospects of Elliott Bay, Magnolia and the Olympic Mountains to the west, the design delicately blends the pavilion into the client’s existing compound, protects the roots of a grand elm tree and respects neighbor’s views.
