The Forum in Hong Kong, China by Aedas

Wednesday, June 17th, 2015

Article source: Aedas

The Forum redevelopment is a holistic design, integrating a new office building, sculpture park and events plaza and there by revitalising the entire Exchange Square development. The compact and exquisitely detailed new building opens up the site visually and physically, creating a significant public space designed as a series of stone platforms linked with water features and planting. The design by Keith Griffiths is inspired by precious gems. The perfect cube of the building is dramatically tilted to create a grand entrance from the plaza. The geometry of the tilted plane is resolved into the elegant diamond cut façade of the building. As a Grade-A office in the heart of the Central district, the column-free office interior with its 2.9m of floor-to-ceiling space evokes a tailor-made environment with ample natural daylight from all elevations.

Public park by DRAFTARCH

Saturday, May 9th, 2015

Article source: DRAFTARCH

Parco di Piantonia overlooks the valley of the Sporzana stream. Friedrich’s “Wanderer” observes the landscape in a sea of fog. The form of the design uses the relationship between the landscape and the existing trees: the path provides structure and divides up the green space, as far up as the viewpoint. A service block indicates the entrance announcing the route, while the rest areas lie alongside the path, complementing it. A route, a place to socialise, for children to play…

London Linear Park Vauxhall in England by Aleksandar Rudnik Milanovic

Tuesday, April 7th, 2015

Article source: Aleksandar Rudnik Milanovic

The inspiration came from the Vauxhall history. The missing area of the Vauxhall Gardens from 18 centuries, could be replaced with the new green park above the railway line. The urban planning model could be found in the Vauxhall Gardens – the Grand Walk paintings, painted by Canaletto. And finally the skyscraper will be the proper symbolic structure, that will reminds the Vauxhall visitors on the longest hot-air balloon distance trip from Vauxhall in London to Weilburg in Germany.

DRAGONFLY PARK in Hội An, Vietnam by V-architecture

PHYLOSOPHY – BE GENTLE WITH NATURE

Traditionally, the designer sees building (architecture) in terms of its aesthetics, siting, spatial utilization, form, structure, building elements, use of color and shade, and other usual features of architectural design. However, the ecologist sees building in the context of the ecosystem concept. This means that he or she conceives a building as consisting of not only the a biotic (non-living) components but also the biotic (living) components, all of which operate together as a whole system in the context of other ecosystems in the biosphere.

Tuesday, March 17th, 2015

Article source: Hennebery Eddy Architects, Inc.

After 40 years of constant use Shute Park Branch Library had devolved into a dark, cluttered, and inefficient interior space that had little connection to its namesake park. This comprehensive renovation included a complete reorganization of the floor plan and was based on the integration of three transformative characteristics -establishing a new relationship to the park, openness, and natural light.
