Deck over a roman site in Cartagena, Spain by Amann-Canovas-Mauri

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

Article source: Amann-Canovas-Mauri

The building is essentially a cover protecting the remains of a Roman assembly (thermal baths, forum and domus) in the archaeological site of Molinete Park in Cartagena, Spain.

This cover is certainly another piece in the historic area of Cartagena whose main architectural challenge is to reconcile very different architectures; from the roman time, passing through baroque to nowadays, making all the interventions vibrate together in the neighborhood. It is a transition element, between very diverse urban conditions: in size, material and structure; from the dense city centre to the sloping park.

Confederação Nacional de Municípios in Brazil by OSPA

Wednesday, June 13th, 2012

Article source: OSPA

Since its inauguration, Brasília is present in the imagination of all of the modern architects. Besides all of the inherent symbolism, designing in Brasília presupposes a contextualization with its monumental scale. The architecture that makes Brasília unique, sometimes also makes it distant from the human being and its needs.

New High-tech Classroom Building in Decatur, Georgia by Lord Aeck & Sargent

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

Article source: Lord Aeck & Sargent

A serendipitous alignment of program, a compatible historic structure and creativity, have resulted in an environmentally sensitive, high-tech classroom building that is transforming the teaching and learning experience – along with the entire campus – at Columbia Theological Seminary.

The $8.2 million building, named the Vernon S. Broyles Jr. Leadership Center, connects a 20,500-square-foot repurposed historic dormitory built in 1932 with 16,000 square feet of new construction to create what is now the seminary’s primary classroom building and outdoor learning/gathering space. The structure – contemporary yet sensitive to the historic collegiate gothic architecture of the seminary’s other buildings – has become a focal point that anchors a previously nondescript but public corner of the campus.

National Creative Cluster in Beijing, China by Sasaki Associates

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

Article source: Sasaki Associates

Since the beginning of the 21st century, Beijing has made huge strides to solidify its position as one of the world’s great cities. It is a city that is modernizing rapidly—skyscrapers are rising out of fallow fields, a new transportation system is extending the reach of the city, and environmental initiatives are improving air and water quality. Fresh ideas are also emerging, while still embracing the rich traditions of the past. Near Songzhuang, a quiet village on the outskirts of Beijing, a unique opportunity exists to create a new urban district dedicated entirely to the cultivation of new ideas.

Public plazas and parks are also used for large gathering spaces for product launches, concerts, and other events

Chromatic Play in Mallorca, Spain by Juana Canet Arquitectos

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

Article source: Juana Canet Arquitectos

The project responds to the idea of extending the school with a multipurpose room in an adjacent plot which should be connected internally and have an independent entrance from the street.

The plot is rectangular in a 4:1 proportion and the aim is to have a whole 7 meter span open space with natural light and crossed ventilation. In order to achieve that the façade will have to provide as much light as possible and skylights will need to be incorporated in the roofing and on top of the internal staircase. The multipurpose room will be connected in two different levels with the school, at ground level through an ascendant staircase and at roofing level through a descending ramp.

Folded house in Cas Capità, Marratxí by juana canet rossello

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

Article source: juana canet rossello

The site is located in a row housing development , close to the aerodrome and the village of Marratxi and not far from Palma. The area has a mainly residential character with very few premises on ground floor, from time to time a restaurant or a bar. The plot is a rectangular corner, that cannot be entirely occupied, on the contrary the construction needs to set back from the main street and pull forward from the other limit.

The main goal of the Project is to get the maximum space for parking, premises and dwelling as the main demand of the client and we achieved that also providing natural light to all the spaces and cross ventilation to the main ones and creating living and singular spaces in all the construction at different levels.

The strategies we followed are:

1_ The construction is lifted up from the road level.

By doing that, the ramp descending towards the garage ended up beeing shorter so we could get the maximum number of parking spaces and beeing able to provide natural light and ventilation to the garage.

2_ The construction is set back from the street and pull out from the back of the plot.

So the front of the plot remains open which becomes a public space and people can gain access to the premises which could be seen from the street. This difference in height makes the front court to be an in-between space.

The lateral limit of the plot is made by a single wall which also forms part of the enclosure of the premises, with a top part of “fenêtres en longueur” that separates conceptually the dwelling. Where this wall is passing by the courtyards it becomes more permeable.

The back of plot becomes a private courtyard that also incorporates skylights at the ground level to light the garage.

3_.The roofing of the house is folded up.

The program organization follows the logical use’s order in terms of public and private, so the higher you go the more private the space becomes.
The staircase which leeds to the upper level is placed by the party wall and is lighted from a skylight placed at the terrace level. We arrive at the center of the house.

At the interior of the house, the private spaces of the dwelling (bathrooms and bedrooms) are packed by the party wall, there are no corridors.

The roofing is folded up in order to achieve, at the one side a double height unique space to allocate the kitchen, living and dining area, and at the other one, enough height to acommodate a mezzanine which will allow to exit towards the terrace that has views to the Sierra de Tramuntana. The continuity of the roof is given by a window which becomes skylight.

In the main level of the housing a canopy area is created at the front area which will allow to have an external space designed to be protecting the big window with an external skin.

4_The scale of is worked out with the materials.

The external wall is cladded in slate stones as an independent element. Then the folded roofing is cladded in limestone mares. The front and the back of the dwelling is rendered at first level and at ground level has a glass and aluminium facade.
