Origami is a Japanese traditional craft of paper folding.

The pillars are made of folded steel plates like Origami.

“Circle” consist of units of pillars sorted continuously enable this structure to bear vertical load and make multi-storied large space and resists earthquakes plastically. Also “Core wall” which surrounds the Central Void improves earthquake-resistance.

Seattle Center HUB (Hybrid Urban Bioscape) by Aetrangere

Friday, October 5th, 2012

Article source: Aetrangere


While society is becoming more complex, two social dynamics could have an enormous incidence in the way that public space will perform in the future. People have a growing concern about environmental matters while an increasing access to information in real time ( and to the mobile media technologies that make it possible) are defying the classical conception of public space, redefining our expectations and confronting it to evolving demands for a wide range of new social experiences.

Ex-Cinema Fasano in Isernia, Italy by Architect Michele Nunziata

Thursday, October 4th, 2012

Article source: Architect Michele Nunziata

This building derives by the need of rehabilitating a long term abandoned area in the centre of the city of Isernia, where there was an huge shed previously used as cinema.

I have developed the project idea through the unitary remodelling of the existing complex, which was surrounded by sixty years old houses. In this context I decided to intervene for a step forward by completely detaching from the surronding context and by using noble materials for reappropriating of real estate increasing value. This is then an urbanism revaluation realised through a refined building in a degraded context.
