Building Tirana’s GREEN Future: Tirana Northern Boulevard and River Project in Albania by Cino Zucchi Architetti

Friday, April 20th, 2012

Article source: Cino Zucchi Architetti

The center of Tirana is marked by a clear urban layout, but its recent growth filled up a large area around it without any order, structure, adequate services or meaningful public spaces.

In our proposal, the voids rather than the buildings become the catalysts of new urban regeneration, attracting public and private functions around a sequence of green spaces of high environmental quality. The extension of the boulevard into a lively green promenade progressively opens up to the beautiful landscape of the hills across the Tirana river.

Flussbad in Berlin, Germany by realities:united

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

Article source: realities:united

The goal of the Flussbad project is the permanent transformation of a 1.5-km stretch of river in Berlin’s historic center that has gone unused for more than 100 years.

The lower section of the course of the river, currently channeled as a canal, will be made into a space accessible to the public via two broad shoreline stairways at the Lustgarten and the Schlossplatz. The design alterations in this sensitive city-planning area, part of which belongs to the “Museum Island”, a UNESCO world cultural heritage site, are restricted to a minimum.

CII in Los Angeles, California by Koning Eizenberg Architecture (designed using Revit and SketchUp)

Friday, April 6th, 2012

Article source: Koning Eizenberg Architecture

This 47,000 sq. ft. project entails the adaptive reuse and creative rehabilitation of two lightindustrial warehouse buildings in a gritty inner-city Los Angeles neighborhood. On a tight budget, the design deinstitutionalizes the sensitive social functions of the organization, through a combination of innovative organizational planning and the limited insertion of simple (but creative) new architectural systems within the renovated existing building shell. The program includes a preschool, individual therapy rooms, administrative offices, and large multipurpose spaces for community programs.

Hancock Lofts in West Hollywood, California by Koning Eizenberg Architecture (designed using Revit and SketchUp)

Friday, April 6th, 2012

Article source: Koning Eizenberg Architecture

A developer/architect team was selected by the City of West Hollywood to develop a city owned site, address a shortage of parking, and flush out a program for housing and retail space through a community process. The design’s non-conventional approach leverages the irregular, sloping lot to reinforce street life as well as create an unexpected roof top open space. Public parking is located underground while residential parking loops up and over street level housing to place an active use along the side street. Architectural expression is rooted in sustainable strategies. All units are cross ventilated and sliding wood screens are used to shade boulevard flats and moderate the level of engagement with the busy street below.
