The Crescent in Surat, India by Sanjay Puri Architects

Sunday, July 2nd, 2017

Article source: Sanjay Puri Architects

Situated on a small site abutting a road junction, this single level office building creates a sculptural presence.

Overlapped curvilinear volumes orient each of the internal spaces towards the north in response to the location of the site while creating a semi enclosed north facing courtyard between the office spaces.

By designing an office building that doubles as a piece of Green infrastructure, we have created an icon for the BCDA. The entire building sustains life at different levels.

A Former Grain Silo in Chicago, Illinois by JGMA

Friday, June 30th, 2017

Article source: JGMA 

JGMA focuses on generating energy from food waste by reviving silos and invigorating a community. Food is at the center of our daily lives: fueling human bodies, supporting a natural energy cycle, and is one of the most significant reflections of human culture. Despite this, food is continually wasted, in the City of Chicago as at rate of 55 million pounds per month according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Anaerobic Digesters can capture this food waste and generate usable energy in the form of methane gas, which could be the cleaner substitution of energy production within the city. Chicago’s Damen Grain Silo site in Pilsen, a site that once boasted massive grain production in the city has remained unoccupied along the south branch of Chicago’s river. Using the once stratifying infrastructural elements such as a vehicular bridge, the river, and aged vacant grain elevators, a new architecture emerges to suture disparate communities and ultimately connect neighbors to exciting new jobs, educational facilities, and recreational amenities. This area will mark the future of a new model for community-centric infrastructure, focused around bio-digesters, boasting a new international public market, restaurants, public parkland, wholesale food distribution, educational facilities, and a museum dedicated to a century of energy in Chicago.

VMware Campus in Palo Alto, California by Form4 Architecture

Friday, June 30th, 2017

Article source: Form4 Architecture

Design

The asymmetrical balance between nature and architecture is the supporting idea for Form4 Architecture’s design of VMware Campus, set in Palo Alto, CA, housing the cloud infrastructure and business mobility company’s headquarters. Encompassing 11 buildings and three parking structures for a total of more than 1.8 million square feet, the campus was designed to reject the confines of traditional office buildings, and capitalize on the serene setting in which it was built as a reflection of the company’s values. The architecture and design scheme take on its forms by revisiting the basic principles of urban design with a 21st-century twist. The project’s architecture of presence is discreet, but not timid. It sets a mechanism that allows for the flexibility of future growth, yet is fully realized in its architectural aspiration.

BE OPEN – A11 in Paris, France by Brenac & Gonzalez et Associés

Thursday, June 29th, 2017

Article source: Brenac & Gonzalez et Associés 

Based on a quest for a powerful identity and an effort to weave important links with the city, this new development stage of the Zac Paris Rive Gauche is designed to complete an urban repurposing initiated almost 20 years ago.

Building next to an urban void always poses exceptional challenges. The lot on the city block A11, free of adjacent buildings, faces urban arteries which also structure it, while also offering views of the railyard landscape, a river of rails and catenaries bestowing an obvious urban poetry upon the site, in which different strata of the city intermingle.

Mad Building in Oslo, Norway by MAD arkitekter

Friday, June 16th, 2017

Article source: MAD arkitekter 

Challenge

The challenge was extreme: What to do with an urban space which is 10 x 90 metres in area, with minimal sunlight and a requirement of 200 bicycle parking places? This strip of city floor should give pedestrians (and cyclists!) a pleasant experience and, at the same time, provide a suitable entrance to the commercial areas on ground floor level
