Cocoon in Zurich, Switzerland by Camenzind Evolution

Thursday, February 16th, 2012

Article source: Camenzind Evolution

Cocoon is located in Zurich’s Seefeld district on a beautiful hillside, which enjoys excellent lake and mountain views. The location’s distinctive flair stems from the exceptional park-like setting – a green oasis into which Cocoon snugly nestles. Flanked on three sides by mighty, age-old trees the elliptical structure reads as a freestanding sculptural volume that gracefully spirals up from the park. The stainless steel mesh enveloping the building combines visual privacy with restrained elegance, while establishing a strong and unmistakable presence.

Between Cathedrals in Cádiz, Spain by Alberto Campo Baeza

Saturday, February 11th, 2012

Article source: Alberto Campo Baeza

The project “Between Cathedrals” seeks to create an intervention worthy of the most significant location in the history of Cadiz, the oldest city of the West: the empty space facing the sea located between the Old and New Cathedrals.

The basic premise is to cover and protect an archeological excavation. Additionally, this new plane serves as a base for a space facing the ocean, a raised public space providing clear views unobstructed by cars passing on the circle road.

Malpica Harbour in A Coruña, Spain by CREUSeCARRASCO arquitectos

Sunday, February 5th, 2012

Article source: CREUSeCARRASCO arquitectos

HARBOUR REMODELLING – MALPICA

This harbour redevelopment project, developed in conjunction with the Port Authority, is primarily focused on zones where public space can be created. The harbour was analysed as a place for interrelations and shelter, with the appeal of its fishing industry and its views; a unique location that makes its presence felt in the town with ramps, stairs and balconies. The linear nature of the horseshoe-shaped harbour is exploited to the utmost with a promenade, accessible at an intermediate level that runs along the cliff, resting on outcrops and wall tops which inhabit it in a sense.

Hippodrome Longchamp in Paris by Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas

Saturday, January 28th, 2012

Article source: Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas

The project is part of the existing green spaces, a spontaneous continuity between nature and buildings, between what existed and what have been designed. This led us to the use of elements inspired by organic forms, that become architecture.

The poetic chalices of the stands, that remind of the convolvulus flower, creates plays of light and shadow through the corollas, underlining the design of the project. Architectural “flowers” that protect from the sun during the day and illuminate the interior spaces during the night.

Sea Tree by Waterstudio.NL

Article source: Waterstudio.NL

Urbanisation and climate change put a lot of pressure on available space for nature in city centres. New initiatives for adding extra park zones to a city are rare. Yet these kind of additional habitats for birds, bees, bats and other small animals could bring a lot of positive green effects to the environment of a city.

St. Clare’s Parish Center/Early Childhood Development Center in Staten Island, New York by Studio 16 Architecture PLLC collaboration with Stephen Perrella

Friday, December 23rd, 2011

Article source: Studio 16 Architecture PLLC collaboration with Stephen Perrella, AIA

CONTEXT

A complex of design strategies configures the solution for the Preschool at St.Clare’s. The intent was to establish a sense of openness and free play for a program involving the guidance and education of young children. The proposed architecture endeavors to mediate the imposition of authority over developing youth by calling into question the role that architecture plays in structuring a learning environment. The site of the renovation is within an existing and highly active gymnasium on a church campus. The preschool is situated adjacent to the gymnasium within the same structure.
