Article source: Rede Arquitetos 

The Russas Advanced Campus of the Federal University of Ceará is part of a larger plan to take public University to the interior of Brazil, democratizing opportunities. The first stage consists of three structural units: the portico access, the connecting walkway and the administrative and teaching building. The design was thought to facilitate future expansions and design each unit according to their specific function, also seeking to give unity to the group, either through building elements and materials used, or through the appreciation of the free shaded areas without a defined use, also present throughout the buildings. The understanding that the exchange of knowledge occurs also in these meeting spaces has motivated the creation of it.

CHK | Central Boathouse in Oklahoma by Elliott + Associates Architects

Friday, May 6th, 2016

Article source: Elliott + Associates Architects

The connection of rowing, art and music contains surprising similarities such as rhythm, flow, and movement.  The goal was to create an architectural spirit that embodies the similarities shared by these three disciplines.  We hope you see the abstract connections in the architectural form and light.  Some connections are quiet and some connections are boldImagine a song inspired by rowing.  It would be a composition cooler than the far side of the pillow.

At first, it was a Kyomachi-ya that has been painted multiple times due to refurbishments in the last 80 years. Firtstly, for returning it to the original form, the paints were scraped off. Then, to be able to provide the minimal needs for living in a house, a white box has been placed in the building. The coexistence of the newly placed white box and the historical elements of the Kyomachi-ya, as a background, emphasizes the contrast of the old and the new, and lets the memories of the building possessed with in the flow of time surrounds the space.

Woodland is near the River Yar and lies within the Causeway Conservation Area. The site was purchased by a retired couple who have made the island their home.
