Friday, September 2nd, 2016

Article source: assemblageSTUDIO

Grândola House in Portugal by ColectivArquitectura™

Friday, September 2nd, 2016

Article source: ColectivArquitectura™

The choice of location for deployment of the buildings aimed to make the most of the view of the terrain. At the same time it takes a small promontory to the location of a yard, located to the west of the dwelling, for the parking and maneuvering of vehicles.

The outside form resulted from the intention of creating situations of full/empty, adopting a composition of parallelepiped volumes, which create misalignment through its two courtyards, prolonging the experience of the house to the outside.

Dallas City Block in Texas by SLAB architecture, PLLC

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016

Article source: SLAB architecture, PLLC 

The World’s populations continue to migrate towards cities. In the case of our country, people are again returning downtown to live and to work. To make our future cities healthy and livable, it is imperative that urban development embrace sustainable design strategies and adopt necessary guidelines and regulations. The city block– the basic DNA of urban planning–provides the appropriate scale for intervening and speculating on the future well-being of our cities.  Sustainability, in its broadest definition, includes a range of issues from environmental technologies, lifestyles, community integration, to education and economics. Our project aims to address these essential issues and illustrate through a design proposition that sustainability can be a catalyst for both change and innovation.

Grove at Grand Bay in Miami, Florida by BIG – Bjarke Ingels Group

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016

Article source: BIG – Bjarke Ingels Group

Miami has developed a contemporary vernacular of condominiums that includes brise-soleil-style balconies with floor-to-ceiling windows that offer panoramic water views. We have taken these indigenous elements of the new Miami skyline and continue the evolution of their local architectural language. Coconut Grove’s identity is closely tied to its untamed jungle-like vegetation, yet the center sadly lacks this quality. Our design “re-groves” the heart of Coconut Grove, and create a landscape in tune with the surroundings. The two towers of the Grove at Grand Bay respond to the surroundings and to each other, to give optimum views at every level. The towers take off from the ground to capture the full breadth of panoramic views from sailboat bays and the marina to the Miami skyline. The dancing motion of the towers creates a new landmark in the community. A lush abundance of plant-life blankets over the parking and amenity spaces, folding down to create pedestrian and vehicular access to the towers.

Clover House in Okazaki, Japan by MAD Architects

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016

Article source: MAD Architects 

MAD architects have completed their first project in Japan, the Clover House kindergarten. Located in the small town of Okazaki, the school’s setting boasts views of the paddy fields and mountains, characteristic of the Aichi Prefecture. The kindergarten was originally operated out of the old family home of siblings Kentaro and Tamaki Nara, which soon became too small and unfit for expanding their educational goals. The siblings desired to create a modern educational institution where children could feel as comfortable as they do in their own homes, allowing them to grow and learn in a nurturing setting.
