San Jacinto Building in Austin, Texas by Specht Architects

Thursday, February 16th, 2017

Article source: Specht Architects 

The original poured-in-place concrete warehouse in downtown Austin dates from the early 1900s and is a prime example of the type of building that once populated the warehouse district. Built alongside a once active railroad spur, the building was purchased from its original owner who had performed almost no alterations to the 1915 building. The original concrete frame and brick infill building had been in continuous use as an unconditioned storage space and suffered from what we call “benign neglect”—it hadn’t been upgraded, but it hadn’t been messed up, either.

Thinking Gallery Space in Taipei, Taiwan by Studio In2

Thursday, February 16th, 2017

Article source: Studio In2

The Thinking Gallery Space provides rental services for exhibitions, parties, and classes.

Design Concept:

Concretizing abstract thinking enables us to sketch outlines on paper. The orientations of thought are like angles and changes in light and shadow, and different people do not necessarily see details of pictures in the same way. Based on this, we derived a means by which to embody thought and created the Thinking Gallery Space, which allows us to enjoy the thinking process in a tranquil atmosphere.

The complex, designed by the Barre-Levie Architects firm (BB/566), is rapidly developing and establishing itself on the business map within the Tel Aviv Metropolitan Area. Today, the BBC complex is already a significant center for urban employment, thanks to its attractive conditions, innovative office tower design, and proximity to major highways as well as the future light rail lines.

Article source: Veszprémi Építész Műhely Ltd.

In the 20th century the city management started to reconstruct the city centre twice but the reconstruction has never been finished.

Finally the reconstruction was finished a few years ago: we started to work on it in 2008 and it was finished in 2014.

You can see a long street in the city centre, on the one side of the street there is the old part of the city centre and on the other side there is a 20 storey building with the shopping center, which was built in 1970.

Article source: Beckmann-N’Thépé

This project is part of the scheme to reconsider urban identity in the Centre Urbain, the new neighbourhood that is the emblem of the future Evry. Rows, set back buildings, an interplay of terraces, and “urban windows” create an openness towards the heart of the small island.
