LED light strips in Highbury, North London by MyLandscapes LTD

Friday, August 16th, 2013

Article source: MyLandscapes LTD

This end of terrace courtyard was dominated by an enormous back wall and a tall palm tree on the left. Yet it also had inspirational Italian owners and a fabulous collection of some mature architectural plants. I decided to retain all the plants in their positions as I felt this was an integral fabric of the garden. Only one plant was to be removed – an overgrown Viburnum in the right corner – to be replaced with a beautiful multi-stem bronzed trunk Tibetan Cherry. Coincidentally, retaining the plants enabled a diagonal design to be implemented, which meanders through the trees.

Shining Lighthouse in Belfort, France by archi5 with B. Huidobro

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012

Article source: archi5

The town of Belfort was founded to control the pass between the Vosges and the Jura. The original pentagonal structure was designed by Vauban in 1687 and completed and reorganised by General Haxo. Fort Hatry, where the new sports hall is located, was once part of the city’s defences. The shape of the fortifications was not so much a result of the orthogonal shape of the city but a response to the art of warfare at the time: defence and control of movement using the traditional configuration of edges and folded walls. Since the military abandoned the fortress it has become a recreational park used for open-air events with temporary structures such as fairgrounds or circuses.

A.M. Qattan Foundation Bulding in Ramallah, Palestine by Donaire Arquitectos

Tuesday, November 20th, 2012

Article source: Donaire Arquitectos

Coming from abroad, the Quattan Foundation is perceived as a lighthouse bringing enlightenment to the Palestinian people. This role as flagship of Palestinian culture is in need for a recognizable image worthy to represent its social leadership with a physical landmark. We imagine this landmark as a light up the mountain, seen from everywhere and although modern and contemporary in its form, it is built from the Palestinian very earth and stone. The future building will target an international audience with a contemporary language, but what it will deliver is the local vernacular and very particular qualities.

The lights and images become part of the body of the surface they inhabit. Does the light mold itself to the architectural forms or do the structures themselves arch into the light? An organic relationship, the urban environment is subtly activated to engage both employees and passersby.
