Calamari Union in Turku, Finland by LRA

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

Article source: LRA

The project responds to a new demand of making a city outside of the city. How must we design places to live in contexts not yet settled? Limen in Latin means limit, but also threshold, entrance. It is therefore in the etymology of this word that the premises are found for what can become a place of boundary, not to be intended as a barrier, but as an opportunity of connection. How are the limits of cities emancipated? Identity of living. That is the first reaction that the new settlement proposes to promote.

Glacier Discovery Walk in Jasper National Park, Canada by Sturgess Architecture

Thursday, November 17th, 2011

Article source: Sturgess Architecture

The Glacier Discovery Walk is envisioned as an extension of the fractal landscape that defines the Columbia Icefields in Canada’s Jasper National Park. Located along the edge of this dramatic escarpment, the project weaves a continuous thread of experience through united geometric and material forms. This sinuous experience defines the Discovery Walk not only as a singular destination, but as a catalyst and gateway that empowers guests to immerse themselves in the untouched natural environment.

Bar Jardim 9 de Abril in Lisbon, Portugal by ASPA Arquitectos

Friday, September 9th, 2011

Article source: ASPA Arquitectos

The 9 April Garden, also known as Albertas, has a belvedere with a panoramic views to the Tagus River and it is surrounded by numerous buildings of historical significance to Lisbon. This space appears as a promontory in a green space filled with tradition, open to the river and shipping, and with stunning views to the imposing right bank of river Tagus  Placed on the roofscape of an existing building which anchors the level change between the garden and the lower plane of the Avenida 24 de Julho, this bar/terrace is built on as single storey structure. Its ephemeral character, lightness of materials, transparency, permeability and reflection promotes and preserves existing views, allowing the structure not to become an obstacle.
