COUNTRY GARDEN FOREST CITY in Malaysia by LAVA

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

Article source: LAVA

LAVA has won 2nd prize in an international competition to design a new city in Malaysia.

LAVA’s concept sees the city defined not as one iconic building, nor as a skyline, but as a central public space, a real forest. Chris Bosse, director of LAVA, explains: “Skylines across the world look the same – usually a couple of iconic towers in the centre surrounded by lots of lesser quality buildings, which all resemble each other.” “Here we have designed an inverse city skyline where the icon of the city is a public space, not an object/building. Our central space is a Rainforest Valley and demonstrates the equation: PEOPLE = CITY. From an object to a place.”

MAPmx Studio inserts wooden object into residential apartment.

Mexico City practice, MAPmx has completed a residential interior in the northwest area of Mexico City. The strategy for the design of the 360 sqm apartment was to place a wooden piece into the main space. This element inside of the unit, divides the space into half creating separated areas for public and private program. Living, dining and study are concave, while leaving private areas convex. Service spaces such as kitchen, laundry and service bedroom are the only program located outside of the concave/ convex object, they join part of the perimeter of the apartment.

High Meadow Dwellings at Fallingwater in Pennsylvania by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson

Thursday, March 9th, 2017

Article source: Bohlin Cywinski Jackson 

Located on a historic farm adjacent to Frank Lloyd Wright’s renowned Fallingwater residence, High Meadow serves as home base for students of Fallingwater Institute’s summer residency programs in architecture, art, and design.

Positioned between forest and field, four modest dwellings with simple wood interiors and framed vistas of the surrounding hilltops rest lightly above ground on a network of nimble steel columns and delicate tectonics, imparting minimal disturbance to the site. An angled shroud at the end of each unit catches cool breezes rising up from the valley floor below and shields the naturally ventilated rooms from the summer sun. Screened entry doors allow for additional airflow and connect the units to a covered walkway.
