Dutch architecture studio 70F architecture designed a visitors center that ‘lives’. Hof van Duivenvoorde (Duivenvoordes Courtyard) has nine movable facade parts that open up the building in the morning and close it at night. When the façade is open the building is a light restaurant, when it’s closed it becomes a modest barn that disappears in its surroundings.
Stand Ventura was part of one of the most important finishes trade fair in the United States and was done in 334.45 sq m. The client wanted to stand out by presenting a wide range of its collections and making clear for the visitor the difference between them.
Inspired by traditional Japanese sand gardens, and by traditional gazebos, the Interactive Circular Pattern Forming Pavilion is an experimental merging of interactive art and architecture. Its ultimate purpose is to provide a very special place in and around which, its users can relax, and/or perhaps, meditate.
The space between the center pavilion and the outer perimeter circular wall is filled with a small-grained white gravel. As the footbridge and tube and rod assembly are rotated around the perimeter of the pavilion, many different patterns can be formed into the white gravel as the various rods are dragged around. The variations of patterns can be formed by the speed of rotation along with the positions of the 13 rods, and by the back and forth movement of the entire assemblage. A blade attached to the front end of the footbridge continually smoothes out the previously formed patterns so that a nearly endless variety of new patterns can be created.
With the start of 2018, a new iconic structure was opened to the public in Tilburg (Netherlands). The structure forms a public pavilion on the central pier in the old city harbour and serves as a landmark for recreational boats and yachts, visiting the city. The firms Civic Architects & Bright Urban Futures designed a striking steel structure that unites the public viewing platform and the restaurant, adding a piece of sturdy architecture to the harbour vista.
This building is located on a plot of 4000 m2 with the purpose of becoming the focus of main activity of housing in the summer months. For this, a pavilion is created totally open to the garden as a continuity of this one. It is a completely permeable construction, but with its own very marked identity, because the deck slab defies gravity by means of the imposing cantilever which, because it has no supports, is directly linked to the pool, being only a roof that ‘floats’ to generate shade in the rest of the program: an open kitchen with barbecue and a traditional oven, a large arbour, and the toilet area and dressing rooms to service the pool. The hidden perimeter lighting still further highlights the slab’s lightness, while the Corten Steel lagging provides a modern look that fits seamlessly with the main house.
An undulating glass and terraced terracotta pavilion opened at Tivoli Gardens on November 17 to public acclaim. The new building transforms the western edge of the historic park and brings fresh excitement to Copenhangen’s urban core. Designed by the internationally recognized New York—based architectural firm Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, the project houses a food hall, shops, restaurants, and hotel rooms and is topped by a landscaped roof. It continues Tivoli’s rich tradition of intertwined recreation, amenity, and natural beauty.
The single-storey pavilion is located in the centre of Bertrange, at the crossing of Rue de Luxembourg and Rue de Leudelange. In the context of a redesign of Bertrange’s centre, a new town square is created in close proximity to the town hall and the church with a neighbouring park. The discreet cubic body is located right on the boundary of the square and the park. With its basic dimensions of 28m x 11m, it acts as a mediator between these two key urban features.
This small pavilion functions as a doorway to the design and architecture exhibition ‘Casa Cor MG 2015’ in Belo Horizonte, where ‘Brazilianity’ was the proposed theme.
‘Mineral Essence’ was the concept adopted where the rusted steel, a material that refers directly to the state of Minas Gerais’ siderurgyc activities, is used how it is provided bt the industry, on metal strips that defined the project the continuos plan conforming the surfaces of the floor, wall and ceiling.
