Maggie’s Centre Barts in London, England by Steven Holl Architects

Wednesday, January 24th, 2018

Article source: Steven Holl Architects

The site in the center of London is adjacent to the large courtyard of St. Bartholomew’s Hospital. Founded in Smithfield in the 12th century, the hospital is the oldest in London and was founded at the same time as the St. Bartholomew the Great Church in 1123. Rahere founded the church and hospital “for the restoration of poor men.” Layers of history characterize this unique site, connecting deeply to the Medieval culture of London.

“Complexe Sportif Saint-Laurent” in Montréal, Canada by Saucier + Perrotte Architectes/HCMA

Thursday, October 19th, 2017

Article source: v2com

The project site is situated between the existing Émile Legault School and Raymond Bourque Arena, both of which are horizontal in form and neutral in character. For this project, it thus became vital for the design of new sports complex to create a visual and physical link between the Marcel Laurin Park (to the north of the site), and the projected green band that will run along Thimens Boulevard.

Public Library and Socio-Cultural Center in Aduanas, Spain by Singular Studio

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

Article source: Singular Studio

This building, conceived with a hybrid use of Public Library and Socio-Cultural Center, is located in the seaside neighborhood of Javea, near the port. This is the reason why, after a process of architectural approach, it has been inspired by reasons related to the sea … metal facade vibrates, has three dimensions and simulates movement, such as sea surface. The facade treatment, as a light metal skin that envelops the whole volume, aims to boost its weightlessness without touching the ground plane. It is a large box or floating cage, a huge metal fishing net as those in the nearby port.

Article source: Studio Gang Architects 

Historically, convening for social justice has taken place in informal settings—a church basement, a living room, or even around a kitchen table.

The Arcus Center for Social Justice Leadership brings these discussions up from the basement and squarely into public consciousness.

Ru Paré Community in Amsterdam, The Netherlands by BETA office for architecture and the city

Friday, February 3rd, 2017

Article source: BETA office for architecture and the city 

In the early 2000s, the Ru Paré School was emblematic of the social problems facing the Amsterdam borough of Slotervaart. The Ru Paré is now the neighborhood’s living room and accommodates an extraordinary social experiment.

A NEW KID ON THE BLOCK

In response to austerity measures in the Dutch economy, a social entrepreneur developed a model for solidarity in challenging neighborhoods. Inhabitants are offered tax advice, computing or language classes in return for community service; at the building level receding funding is supplemented with profitable start-ups.

Under the framework of the urban renewal program, the city of Nemours wished to build a social center and a cultural space on the grand esplanade of the Mont Saint-Martin neighborhood. The grouping of a facility of this importance with shops around a reorganized and upgraded public space aims to revitalize activity and strengthen social cohesion. Its central and exposed position help to underscore the building’s function as a public facility.
