Boiler House Conversion in Libčice nad Vltavou, Czech Republic by Atelier Hoffman

Sunday, June 3rd, 2018

Article source: Atelier Hoffman

From the pile of ashes and rubble. An original conversion of a former boiler house into a multi-functional leaseable area for cultural, corporate and social events, with an ambition to become the heart of a future arts & culture district existing in a symbiotic relationship with traditional crafts and technological innovation and preserving, in a unique way, the industrial phase of the city’s development which has significantly influenced the historical context of the place in question. It is another important project contributing to the gradual regeneration of the former large industrial estate of ŠROUBÁRNA (Screw Factory) in Libčice nad Vltavou near Prague which provided people with jobs and a place to live and became a bearer of near 150-year tradition of know-how and craftsmanship in the field of screw and wire production. The brownfield, which currently operates at a fraction of its former capacity, is thus being revived with a plan to preserve and develop the tradition of crafts and manufacturing. The boiler house, together with the already iconic industrial gem of Uhelný Mlýn (the Coal-Grinding Mill), are the beginning of the new UM Valley located in a meander of the Vltava river. It represents a precedent for many other still dilapidated sites.

Notski, Heinola Upper Secondary School in Finland by LAHDELMA & MAHLAMÄKI ARCHITECTS

Friday, April 13th, 2018

Article source: LAHDELMA & MAHLAMÄKI ARCHITECTS 

Notski is the winning competition entry for a 4660m2 upper-secondary school in Heinola by Lahdelma & Mahlamäki Architects. Aside from its core focus of learning the school also is to become a social hub for the community – housing civic activities, youth culture and community sports. Flexible learning and activity spaces pivot outwards from a core social space that links all the programmes together. The classrooms themselves, designed with pedagogic experts, are optimised to cater for the different learning situations that the students would find themselves in throughout their school career.

Gaîté Montparnasse in Paris, France by MVRDV

Monday, April 9th, 2018

Article source: MVRDV 

Situated in close vicinity to Tour Montparnasse, the Vandamme mixed-use block, designed in the early 1970s by the French architect Pierre Dufau, was as one of the largest urban projects implemented in Paris at the time. As a design driven to prioritise automobile use, it appeared as a triangular urban island surrounded by the traffic loaded Rue Mouchotte, Avenue du Maine, Rue Vercingétorix and the rail tracks of Gare Montparnasse opposite the site. Dufau’s design is characterized by a clearly defined horizontal plinth, interrupted only by the verticality of the slender, 30-storey tower of the Hotel Pullman. Once a landmark of the era, over time the complex has failed to adapt to the changing needs of an urban society, resulting in an introverted and self-contained block which lacks urban connectivity, discourages pedestrian activity and neglects any sense of identity.

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.

‘ LOCAL, FRIENDLY AND GREEN ‘

The project area residential pattern has been isolated between, Ege University residences and İzmir-Manisa main arterial road.This isolated attitude of the zone is reflected to the project area due to the inadequacy of the socio-cultural functions of the transfer zone and the open area density can not be kept permanent.

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.

Friday, April 14th, 2017

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.
