A mixed use building in Nancy, France by Anne DEMIANS

Thursday, March 19th, 2015

Nancy, A Modern City for Over Three Centuries

Throughout the various periods of its urban development, Nancy’s vision always preceded its architectural commissions. The city suburbs were initially attributed to the original castle town, and in the eighteenth century, a message of unity was asserted at the annexation of Lorraine to the Kingdom of France. And this was an opportunity to highlight the ducal power around an exceptional architecture (classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site). At the beginning of the twentieth century, the architecture in Nancy successfully integrated the richness of the École de Nancy in its constructions, just as it was able to promote new ideas on building and construction in the footsteps of the architect and designer Jean Prouvé, who was also mayor of Nancy after the Liberation. This identity and legacy continues today with the reconquest of the riverbanks of the Meurthe: the city of the twenty-first century.

City of Paris approves MVRDV’s restructuring of 1970s superblock in Montparnasse

Saturday, March 7th, 2015

Article source: MVRDV

The City of Paris has given the green light to MVRDV’s ambitious plan for the restructuring of the mixed-use urban block Vandamme Nord at Gaîté-Montparnasse in the 14th arrondissement of Paris. The large building complex, built in the 1970s, comprises a shopping centre, offices, a public library, a hotel and an underground car park, all of which will be retrofitted so as to reintroduce the human scale to an urban environment largely characterized by wide boulevards and monolithic structures. In addition to the face-lift provided by a new facade, the accessibility and programmatic identity of each of these programs will be improved through a total internal reorganisation of the complex. The building’s restructuring also foresees extending the existing commercial spaces, creating new office space, a new kindergarten, an expanded library, a conference centre, as well as a number of social housing units.

Dalsein citizen’s Gymnasium in Daegu, South Korea by Javier Mosquera González

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015

Article source: Javier Mosquera González

Gymnasium = Gymnasion

In ancient Greece, the Gymnasium was used to practice exercise, as a public bath, as a center for studies and as a common place for philosophers. The main idea of this project is to create a meeting place for the  citizens. The building is configures into several exterior and interior areas where coexistence happens in a natural way. The project is divided into three parts, the first one, exterior, with a horizontal area ready to hold open air events. The second one defined as daily sports facilities, and the third one understood as the multipurpose gymnasium and spectators area, conceived as an area around the courts and directly linked to the park on the east side of the plot. The last part is the area with the common facilities such as dressing rooms, cafeteria and offices, all of them organized around those three main areas, ensuring the proper functioning of the building.

Tropism of Wild Flower in Seoul, Korea by Dongjin Kim / L’EAU design Co.,Ltd.

Saturday, February 7th, 2015

Article source: Dongjin Kim / L’EAU design Co.,Ltd.

A City is a community filled with diverse discrete entities and a silhouette appears by the creation of a standardized system for the mutual co-existence of all entities. It is the Architecture which forms their living environment within this unknown disorder among the city’s entities. Architecture is a multi-layered, three dimensional object within the Urban Eco-system. If the architecture is seized by the logic of economy and hardens to a solid object and cannot react flexibly to the variety of changes and the environmental stimulus, the flow of symbiosis forms within the biosphere will inevitably break naturally.
