Kaleidoscope in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam by CongSinh Architects

Thursday, July 14th, 2016

Article source: CongSinh Architects

The rapid urbanization in several Asian cities has dramatically reduced the living area per person. Especially in Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City, most people, sometimes extended families, spend their lives in narrow and long tube houses where they live apart from nature and in dark and unventilated spaces.

Long tube houses for extended families have always been a complicated question for generations of Vietnamese architects.

Las Trancas House in Araucanía Region, Chile by CIA_ARQ

Wednesday, July 13th, 2016

Article source: CIA_ARQ

The Las Trancas house is the first of a series of new constructions on this . It’s a starting point for the colonization of this property, located on the banks of lake Calafquen near Coñaripe. A virgin place which must be tamed.

For this first construction, the project’s logic had to be as fitting to local knowledge as possible, because due to the terrain’s characteristics and the difficulties of access, most of the materials, techniques and workmanship used would have to be local, presenting a somewhat technically atemporal construction.

Wednesday, July 13th, 2016

Article source: GLR arquitectos / Gilberto L. Rodríguez

In a privileged site occupied by an old and obsolete house, we face a dilemma: renovate or demolish such house in order to make way for a new residential project. In conjunction with the client we decide to go for the latter alternative and go ahead with the demolition, adjusting the topography according to the new scheme, which will seek to benefit from the wonderful city views.

Modelia Days NAKANOBU in Tokyo, Japan by Ryuichi Sasaki / Sasaki Architecture + Rieko Okumura / Atelier O

Tuesday, July 12th, 2016

Article source: Ryuichi Sasaki / Sasaki Architecture + Rieko Okumura / Atelier O

The building sits in a neighbourhood shopping lane in Nakanobu, just south to the central district of Tokyo. The town is a mixture of old and new. A grandma’s confectionary and a jazz festival, pensioners among young couples, all share the same streets happily together. The site locates itself in the vicinity of a newsstand, a bathhouse and alike. In order to fit in to this yet humble liveliness of the town, the building’s scale is restrained to those of the neighbouring buildings, 4 stories with only 12 units.
