A small pavilion on the campus of Kyoto University of Art and Design, born from a collaboration between architect Ryue Nishizawa and design office nendo. The location: a steep hill face covered in luxurious vegetation.
On a clear day, you can almost count the 36 crests of the hills that line Kyoto’s eastern edge. The adjacent area is earmarked for a new grove of Japanese plum trees, and their fragrant early spring blossoms will only add to an already beautiful site. Nishizawa used a single roof to incorporate these elements into the pavilion’s design.

Commissioned by the Dallas Parks Department, this new shade structure bridges the gap between two groups of trees at a natural gathering place in the park. The composition of steel components abstract and mimic the surrounding trees to produce similar dappled shade.

If one had to describe the relationship between Venetian designer Luca Nichetto and the Tales enterprise in only one word, it would be “emotion.” What brought these two lovers of design together is nothing short of a cocktail of right timing, trust, a twist of luck, and the mutual notion that emotion is at the core of design.

A new sculptural glass pavilion is the key element for the makeover of this 1970’s office tower, which includes the lobby, retail space and the exterior facade. The dynamic and transparent form provides a dramatic entrance that is intended to transform the perception of the entire building. It creates a highly visible identity and has become a recognizable landmark within the business district. As well as the new pavilion, the project includes stone cladding to the exterior, a new lobby and additional retail space.

Climate-responsiveness in architecture is typically conceived as a technical function enabled by myriad mechanical and electronic sensing, actuating and regulating devices. In contrast to this superimposition of high-tech equipment on otherwise inert material, nature suggests a fundamentally different, no-tech strategy: In various biological systems the responsive capacity is quite literally ingrained in the material itself.

Designed for the Zaragoza Expo 2008, the DWP is not a project meant, like many others, to seduce the visitor by the sheer power of its architectural form. Its geometry could hardly be simpler: a rectangular shape in which two boxes are respectively devoted to an information point and a tourist centre. The challenge was to use water – the theme of Expo 2008 – as an architectural element.

BES pavilion is a service space for an open community, focusing on the aspects of art and culture. Located in the central Ha Tinh city, BES (Bamboo + Earth + Stone) is set up from local materials and traditional building methods which based on the idea of centralizing the users.
The building’s users will have a great chance to approach and to be educated from the functions and effects of the building toward the nature and local community.The best way to learn is to do it! Joining in the building process to create their own specific space is an effective practicing condition. The solutions of the pavilion’s design themselves become some useful lesions: Aerodynamics (ventilation), Physics (light diffusion), Biology (photosynthesis, planting)…Those will help to direct the users’ behaviors in the future – for a greener living environment.

Baltimore – Students and faculty from the School of Architecture and Planning have been invited for the third straight year to participate and exhibit an environmental installation for Artscape. The project, titled Destination 1 is a music pavilion and DJ dome inspired by the visionary ideas of Buckminster Fuller. A forefather of the modern sustainability movement, Fuller sought ways to help humanity better understand the inherent connections of Earth’s living systems that bind us all together. Melding with Artscape’s 2013 theme “No Passport Required,” Destination 1 seeks to celebrate the oneness of the human race regardless of nationality, ethnic, geographic, cultural or financial boundaries. Working with reclaimed / re‐purposed materials, Destination 1 seeks to deconstruct those boundaries. Thus, by promoting a global “oneness” and encouraging visitors to think holistically about our planet, we can encourage all to be better stewards of the planet we share, our “Spaceship Earth.”

The River Heights Pavilion is situated on the outskirts of Taiyuan along the edge of its famous Fen River. As the capital of Shanxi province, Taiyuan is an example of a second tier Chinese city developing at break neck speed. The River Heights Pavilion is built on a typical blank slate site, yet counters the trend of low density housing developments. It is an urban project located in the middle of suburbia.
