SETEC International office Building extension to a Jean Prouvé office Existing Building in Vitrolles, France by Series et Series

Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

Article source: Series et Series

The headquarter of the International SETEC, located in Vitrolles in the south of France, formerly EPAREB (Etablissement Public d’Aménagement des Rives de l’Etang de Berre) was built in several phases. Firstly, in the 70s, Jean Prouvé implemented “Petroff system” developing a three-dimensional structural steel sheet and plexiglass panels on the front. This device would allow to cover a large area without increasing the bearing points, which in turn was covered by aluminium stiffeners attached to the work front.

The Sony Corporation’s building in Osaki, Japan by Nikken Sekkei Ltd.

Saturday, October 6th, 2012

Article source: Nikken Sekkei Ltd.

Concept & Objectives

This project was inspired by the paradoxical idea of improving the environment through the presence of large-scale architecture. The Project is an office building for Sony’s R&D department, which takes the form of a thin vertical plate to ensure good views. More importantly, the form minimizes the heat island effect by positioning its narrow sides against prevailing winds, thus allowing the breeze to flow in from Tokyo Bay without hindrance. The building was then conceived as a massive cooling devise that performs in much the same way as a natural forest.

TSR Building in Tokyo, Japan by Jun’ichi Ito Architect & Associates

Thursday, September 27th, 2012

Article source: Jun’ichi Ito Architect & Associates

TSR Building Architectural Main Concept

Prologue
The clients are a family (a father and a son) who are psychiatrists and have been running a mental health clinic in Minato ward in central Tokyo for fifty years. Although the clinic has a long history housed in its current old wooden building, it became necessary for it to relocate due to a road schedule based on an urban plan formulated immediately after the Japanese defeat in World War II. In accordance with the relocation, the family decided to purchase an old building a five-minute walk from the clinic and build a new building on the site in order to reopen the clinic there. The beginning of this project was to the dismantling of the old building.
