Collective housing in Torre Baró, Spain by Josep Miàs

Wednesday, December 24th, 2014

Article source: Josep Miàs

Topographically, the plot, with a pentagonal shape, is in the middle of a slope. In order to take advantage of this situation, the owners suggested a programme of an underground parking, commercial facilities on the ground floor and housing on the upper levels. The project is surrounded by other housing buildings, so it is, in fact, in the middle.

EauBERGE PARIS CAPSULE HOTEL in France by MenoMenoPiu Architects

Saturday, December 13th, 2014

Article source: MenoMenoPiu Architects

“Just like the other European capitals such as Rome, Venice, or Barcelona, Paris risks to become a city museum. The increase of tourists in the French Capital causes panic and also leads to a gradual decentralization from the Parisians.

Paris has the largest concentration in m² of museums in the world, nearly 120 museums in total, with many urban areas which tend to be transformed into living conservatories.
