ZAC Boucicaut, Lot C in Paris, France by Michel Guthmann Architecture & Urbanisme

Friday, June 13th, 2014

Article source: Michel Guthmann Architecture & Urbanisme

Problems and challenges

The site of the former Hôpital Boucicaut (Boucicaut Hospital) in Paris’s 15tharrondissement is an unusual enclave within a district that is otherwise quite diverse. The Hospital formed a uniform block in terms of use, organisation and architecture. The urban development project proposed by the sector’s town planner Paul Chemetov, maintains this notion of an internal uniformity, in contrast with the immediate surroundings. Very different styles of architecture exist in the district surrounding the sector, mainly dating from the 19th and 20th centuries. By contrast, the urban project proposes a rigorous organisation of blocks arranged together in a series of steady colours (no white concrete and a preference for terracotta) and natural materials, all falling within a sort of historic continuity that preserves the original residential character.

Nagaoka City Hall “Aore” in Niigata, Japan by Kengo Kuma and Associates

Saturday, June 7th, 2014

Article source: Kengo Kuma and Associates

With the growth of cities and their scale, public buildings of 20th Century were likely to be driven away to the suburbs, often as isolated concrete boxes in parking lots. We wanted to reverse this flow with Nagaoka Aore. We moved the city hall back to the center of the town and revived a real “heart of town,” which is located in a walking distance from anywhere, working along with people’s everyday life.
