Sunday, June 11th, 2017

Article source: NONAME Architecture

Startup InCUBAtors, a project for the inclusion and promotion to new identitarian ideas of the Cuban culture.

The project is located on the Haiphong esplanade, in the bay of Habana, Cuba. The port and industrial identity of the bay will undergo a reconversion, since the port will be transferred to the city of Mariel, which offers the opportunity to rethink itself as a significant cultural enclave, from the anthropic and the symbolic.

Marseille Vieux Port in France by Foster + Partners

Wednesday, March 6th, 2013

Article source: Foster + Partners

Description
Marseille’s Vieux Port is one of the grand Mediterranean ports, but over time the World Heritage-listed site has become inaccessible to pedestrians and has been cut off from the life of the city. The masterplan for its regeneration will reclaim the quaysides as a civic space, creating new informal venues for performances and events and removing traffic to create a safe, semi-pedestrianised public realm. Its transformation is one of a series of projects to be completed in time for the city’s inauguration as European Capital of Culture in 2013.

Seattle Center HUB (Hybrid Urban Bioscape) by Aetrangere

Friday, October 5th, 2012

Article source: Aetrangere

AN URBAN BIOSCAPE

While society is becoming more complex, two social dynamics could have an enormous incidence in the way that public space will perform in the future. People have a growing concern about environmental matters while an increasing access to information in real time ( and to the mobile media technologies that make it possible) are defying the classical conception of public space, redefining our expectations and confronting it to evolving demands for a wide range of new social experiences.

Innovatiepool in Turnhout, Belgium by Bureau B+B urbanism and landscape architecture

Saturday, May 26th, 2012

Article source: Bureau B+B urbanism and landscape architecture

The city of Turnhout intends to develop this plan area into an ’Innovatiepool voor Life Science en Global Care’ (Innovation pool for Life Science and Global Care). This not only involves research and innovative projects concerning care and living, but also new integrated residential care concepts and an overall high standard public space. Bureau B+B and B-architecten asked themselves how far Turnhout’s aspirations could be translated into a distinctive urban design structure, an identity for the ‘Innovatiepool’ and how could ‘Innovatiepool Turnhout’ be formed into a characteristic urban design typology and corresponding public space. There is a square at the middle of the ‘Innovatiepool’, the central meeting place for the area.

Innovatiepool

  • Architects: Bureau B+B urbanism and landscape architecture
  • Project: Innovatiepool
  • Location: Turnhout, Belgium
  • Software used: Don’t use software to design a project. Use software to make the presentation drawings, mainly Photoshop. And 3D Max.
