FUZHOU WUSIBEI THAIHOT PLAZA in CHINA by SPARK

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014

Article source: SPARK

Fuzhou Wusibei Thaihot Plaza’s central location at WuSi Bei Dajie, Jinan District makes it  Fuzhou’s most successful retail mall. Its design enhanced Thaihot’s brand as a forward thinking innovative retail developer. SPARK’s design entwines the plaza, the street and the mall interior into a continuous circulation route that transforms the building into a living entity full of movement and energy. 12-hour daytime retail activities are concentrated in a 7-level shopping mall from which routes to the rooftop are carved out. Here various activities such as full service dining and cinema effectively create 24-hour traffic-free streets and squares attracting visitors not only to shop but also enjoy as a new social and entertainment destination.

Central Bank of Libya in Tripoli by Henning Larsen Architects

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014

Article source: Henning Larsen Architects

By using and re-interpreting specifics of the Libyan nature and culture, the new headquarter of the Central Bank of Libya will be a symbol of the new Libya, both for the local as well as the global community. We believe that the Central Bank of Libya must project an image of authority, solidity and security. At the same time, the Central Bank of Libya plays a crucial role in Libya’s economic growth, and as such, it should project a forward thinking, dynamic attitude, that grasps opportunities.

Dongdaemun Design Plaza in Seoul, Korea by ZAHA HADID ARCHITECTS

Thursday, March 27th, 2014

Article source: ZAHA HADID ARCHITECTS

DDP is the first public project in Korea to utilize the 3-Dimensional Building Information Modelling (BIM) and other digital tools in construction. Throughout the design process, every building requirement was considered as a set of inter-related spatial relationships which will define the social interactions and behavioural structure in/around the project. These relationships became the framework of the design, defining how different aspects of the project, such as spatial organization, programmatic requirements, and engineering come together.
