Bornova Evka 3 Social Center ve Transfer Station in Izmir, Turkey by YEGENA

Wednesday, June 7th, 2017

Article source: YEGENA 

‘ LOCAL, FRIENDLY AND GREEN ‘

The project area residential pattern has been isolated between, Ege University residences and İzmir-Manisa main arterial road.This isolated attitude of the zone is reflected to the project area due to the inadequacy of the socio-cultural functions of the transfer zone and the open area density can not be kept permanent.

High Street South in Manila, Philippines by CAZA Architects

Thursday, May 18th, 2017

Article source: CAZA Architects

Activating the cultural center of Manila’s Bonifacio Global City, CAZA’s design for the High Street South project fuses the neighborhood, district, and urban scales of the master plan around a spine that functions as a network for public spaces. Borrowing from the geological notion of stratification, CAZA created multiple layers of public space that weave together circulation, culture, recreation and event spaces through a collection of hybridized mixed-use towers. Tower typologies are informed by striated levels that include public spaces of mobility and retail at the ground level; semi-private spaces for recreation and amenities; and private residential spaces with urban villas, terraced apartments, and loft units. With the facades’ playfully idiosyncratic grid patterns that correspond to these layers of tower typology, CAZA has designed a family of unique towers that share a unifying visual language and create a gracefully moving texture against the Manila skyline.

The Ningbo Haishu Waterfront in China by CAZA

Tuesday, May 9th, 2017

Article source: CAZA 

The Ningbo Haishu Waterfront district is an island, surrounded by water on all four sides, offering a unique topographical setting in which to reimagine urban life in 21stcentury China. Contemporary Chinese cities have entered a new era of 21st-century urbanism. Old strategies for developing new districts no longer work: cities cannot rely on instant buildings, and iconic projects no longer beget their own economies.

MAAT – Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology in Lisbon, Portugal by AL_A

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017

Article source: AL_A 

MAAT, the new Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology, is an outward-looking museum located on the banks of the Tagus in Belém, the district from where the Portuguese great explorers set off. Proposing a new relationship with the river and the wider world, the kunsthalle is a powerful yet sensitive and low-slung building that explores the convergence of contemporary art, architecture and technology.

The new building is the centrepiece of EDP Foundation’s masterplan for an art campus that includes the repurposed Central Tejo power station.

Bunurong Memorial Park in Bangholme, Australia by BVN

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017

Article source: BVN

Bunurong Memorial Park aims to be a leader in providing memorable settings for a wide range of celebratory, reflective and commemorative events and a valuable community asset.

Working with Aspect Studios, BVN designed a set of distinctive gardens arranged as a connected suite of intimate and public spaces bound by ‘quiet’ buildings with transparent portals that open directly to the garden setting. This series of garden vistas and rooms are in turn linked to the existing lake, now reimagined as the ‘heart’ of a broader network that will include future stages. The widest possible range of reflective and celebratory events, are supported through buildings that include chapels, function rooms, café, florist and service centre. A particularly characteristic part is the pedestrian commemoration bridge which connects the central gardens to the curvilinear outdoor chapel which opens directly to the lake.

Public Library and Socio-Cultural Center in Aduanas, Spain by Singular Studio

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

Article source: Singular Studio

This building, conceived with a hybrid use of Public Library and Socio-Cultural Center, is located in the seaside neighborhood of Javea, near the port. This is the reason why, after a process of architectural approach, it has been inspired by reasons related to the sea … metal facade vibrates, has three dimensions and simulates movement, such as sea surface. The facade treatment, as a light metal skin that envelops the whole volume, aims to boost its weightlessness without touching the ground plane. It is a large box or floating cage, a huge metal fishing net as those in the nearby port.

Community Centre Máj in České Budějovice, Czech Republic by SLLA Architects

Friday, April 21st, 2017

Article source: SLLA Architects 

The community centre Máj is located in the biggest 1980s mass-housing settlement in České Budějovice, an ethnically and socially mixed neighbourhood. In the Czech Republic, one third of the population lives in prefab panel settlements built during the socialism era; after 1989 (the fall of the Soviet bloc), there has been a lack of activities solving problems in these areas. The Máj settlement has an increased concentration of the Roma population, who were evicted into the settlement during the 80s and 90s; the district has been the site of tension and several riots.

Panda House in Copenhagen, Denmark by BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group

Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

Article source: BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group 

Panda House responds to the species’ main threats to extinction – habitat loss and fragmentation – by providing a safe and contiguous environment that’s also conducive for reproduction. We proposed a circular shape for the design – befitting the site perfectly between existing buildings and enabling the literal yin-yang symbol to create separate enclosures for male and female pandas. The architectural parts of the earth are then lifted from either side of the “yin” and “yang” to form space for stables belowground, simultaneously creating an incline to naturally face the pandas toward the audience.
