VILA ROMANA RESIDENCE in São Paulo, Brazil by MMBB Arquitetos

Wednesday, May 17th, 2017

Article source: MMBB Arquitetos

The design of the Vila Romana Residence is derived from the twin imperatives of topography and usage.

It is situated on a corner plot with views of the town’s principal valley, with a drop of 10 meters from one side of the plot to the other.

The first question to be tackled was that of creating an artificial terrain that would allow for easy transit around the external areas and their use for day-to-day activities. The landscaping was determined by the creation of these areas.

Habitat 67 in Montréal, Canada by UQAM Centre de Design

Wednesday, May 17th, 2017

Article source: v2com

This summer, the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) Centre de Design will host a special exhibition examining architect Moshe Safdie’s pioneering urban housing complex Habitat ’67, its manifestation over the course of Safdie’s global career, and its lasting influence on the architectural field at large. A Canadian National Heritage Site and living landmark, Habitat ’67 evolved from Safdie’s thesis project at McGill University and was commissioned by the Canadian government, the province of Quebec, and the city of Montreal as a major, living exhibition for the 1967 World’s Exposition. From the moment it opened, Habitat ’67 captured the international public imagination and has become an enduring icon of Expo ’67 and Canadian pride. It remains to this day a source of inspiration for architecture devoted to humanistic ideals.

A house for a photographer and a landscape designer; Aperture House frames its surrounding natures and embrace the natural world within its serene envelope. Yet, in stillness of this delicately composed environment, Aperture House captures the turnings of time through the interplay of lights and shadows, as daylight cascade through the architectural facade and openings.

Bogotá Centro in Colombia by CAZA Architects

Wednesday, May 17th, 2017

Article source: CAZA Architects

The largest single urban intervention to date in Bogotá, this master plan has the potential to reimagine the way Bogotanos relate to their city. The 72-hectare site revisits the idea of compactness and diversity in the city through the creation of districts within a network of intermediate public parks, each with its own family of mixed-used buildings that in turn define shared private open spaces. Informed by typological research into existing forms of collective housing in Colombia and an analysis of the street grids of the surrounding neighborhoods, the master plan proposes a framework for action. The design acknowledges the reality of Bogotá as a shifting urban territory and proposes a finely articulated spatial strategy of built and unbuilt zones that enables growth and development.

Greco House in Civita di Bagnoregio, Italy by DWA Design Studio

Sunday, May 14th, 2017

Article source: DWA Design Studio

In a place which seems to be out of time, connected to reality by a long bridge like an antique tuff stone island, the project researches a dialogue between traces of history and contemporaneity, with its necessity to regain the bonds with its past.

Thanks to objects which represent the history of Italian design the interiors become a stage for connecting with shapes and materials of the tradition of this region. Discreet presences able to give new meanings to ancient places.

House in Paracas, Peru by Artadi Architects

Sunday, May 14th, 2017

Article source: Artadi Architects 

The house is built in a condominium located on the edge of the Paracas Natural Reserve.

This singular fact defines a double relationship between the house and the place it is located: on the one hand, with the condominium itself, is a man-made oasis, with shade, water, greenery; while on the other with the vast desert to which it opens across the borders of the property.
