The BRAC bookstore and cafe was conceived in May of 2009 and immediately established itself as a central point in Florence for all those with a passion for contemporary art and cuisine. The formula of a ‘library with a kitchen’, a breath of fresh air in the city, combines the passions of the owners Sacha and Melisa: a chef specialized in vegan and vegetarian cuisine with a love for comics and illustration and a bibliophile with an interest for all contemporary art forms (theatre, dance, cinema, photography).

Forestry in the Forest in Hradec Králové, Czech Republic by CHYBIK+KRISTOF

Friday, April 13th, 2018

Article source: CHYBIK+KRISTOF 

The natural and the artificial mingle to become one in the new administrative centre of the Czech Forestry Commission

A project designed by a team under the direction of the Brno based studio Chybik+Kristof has recently won the international competition for the new administrative centre of the Czech Forestry Commission in Hradec Králové. The winning proposal is a two-storey building on the edge of an existing forest, that uses wood extensively as construction material – as requested within the competition. The concept is based on incorporating the forest landscape into a five-finger building to create new relations between the inside office and the outside forest landscape. A nature trail surrounding the building allows to explore the different forest ecotypes, designed by Tomas Babka and breathe.earth.collective.

Gaîté Montparnasse in Paris, France by MVRDV

Monday, April 9th, 2018

Article source: MVRDV 

Situated in close vicinity to Tour Montparnasse, the Vandamme mixed-use block, designed in the early 1970s by the French architect Pierre Dufau, was as one of the largest urban projects implemented in Paris at the time. As a design driven to prioritise automobile use, it appeared as a triangular urban island surrounded by the traffic loaded Rue Mouchotte, Avenue du Maine, Rue Vercingétorix and the rail tracks of Gare Montparnasse opposite the site. Dufau’s design is characterized by a clearly defined horizontal plinth, interrupted only by the verticality of the slender, 30-storey tower of the Hotel Pullman. Once a landmark of the era, over time the complex has failed to adapt to the changing needs of an urban society, resulting in an introverted and self-contained block which lacks urban connectivity, discourages pedestrian activity and neglects any sense of identity.

Media Library and University Residence in Aix-en-Provence, France by ANMA

Thursday, March 22nd, 2018

Article source: ANMA

This operation, which forms part of the Mirabeau Campus Plan, describes three complementary university programs – a media library, a restaurant, and a residence- that must be linked, but each has their own identity and operational autonomy. This multiple programming plays, simultaneously, with the imbrication and the distinction with regard to the existing building and its specific image.

City of Sun in Rome, Italy by LABICS

Thursday, March 15th, 2018

Article source: LABICS 

Winning competition entry for the redevelopment of an urban area, including the transformation of an existing bus depot to integrate a mixture of uses including office, retail space and residential units.

This project is part of the Municipality of Rome’s initiative to redevelop a number of transport depots within the city in conjunction with local public transport authority ATAC. It involves the regeneration of a neighborhood with a weak identity but with good growth potential due to its location at the edge of the city centre. Labics’ aim therefore was to create a new centre for the local community, but also to increase its profile as a place of transition with privileged access to the city centre.
