C-32 Social dwelling in Madrid, España by Santiago de Molina + Hayden Salter + Agatángelo Soler + Edgar Sarli

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

Article source: Santiago de Molina + Hayden Salter + Agatángelo Soler + Edgar Sarli 

The apartment building with 30 rental units for young people is located at the eastern edge of the Carabanchel development. Like other new urban districts in Madrid, this zone is characterized —with its oversized street grid, isolated buildings, unoccupied parcels, empty apartments and vacant shops— by the abrupt change from the booming market of 10 years ago to the present economic crisis.

Polyvalent Social Center in Granada, Spain by Elisa Valero Ramos

Wednesday, September 18th, 2013

Article source: Elisa Valero Ramos

Southeast of the city, where building is sparser in contact with the last foothills of the Sierra Nevada, is the neighborhood of Lancha del Genil. That is where this Polyvalent Social Center is located. It provides a shared space for the development of neighborhood life, a place for activities to meet, a hybrid between indoors and out, an ambiguous space in which lines of force cross and emptiness takes on its own value.

Mas d’Enric Penitentiary in Tarragona, Spain by A i B arquitectes + Estudi PSP Arquitectura

Saturday, April 6th, 2013

Article source: A i B arquitectes + Estudi PSP Arquitectura

The prison is an uncomfortable institution and its architecture is often subjugated to technocratic criteria. This servility forces the prison out of the sociocultural realm where it belongs, thus erasing it from public discourse. The invisibility of the penitentiary as an institution demonstrates an unresolved contradiction underlying contemporary society. We intend to explore this contradiction through architecture.

Social Center in Valencia, Spain by Víctor García Martínez Arquitecto

Saturday, March 23rd, 2013

Article source: Víctor García Martínez Arquitecto

The Social Center and Magistrate’s Court of Rafelbunyol is a facility located in the South area of the village, in a new growth settlement. The public plot appears in the urban design as an interstitial space (almost a leftover) among the roundabout connecting with the consolidated area and the existing buildings.  As a result, the geometry is very irregular with a curved boundary that hinders the disposition of clean volumes. Additionally, the plot dimensions are quite reduced so the occupation is necessarily very high to achieve the programmatic requirements.

Le Temps Machine in Joue-Les-tours, France by Moussafir Architects

Friday, March 8th, 2013

Article source: Moussafir Architects

A Southwest suburb of the city of Tours, Joué-le-Tours was upgraded to the status of a town in the 1950s. It was at this point that, together with the town hall and social housing, Joué-le-Tours got its MJC (the Youth and Culture Centre). An initiative of the country’s first Minister of Cultural Affairs, Gaullist and intellectual André Malraux, the MJCs were an important institution in France.

Friday, March 8th, 2013

Article source: ONL Arquitectura

The existing Social Center expands with a third new volume located at the south area of the building complex. This new wing redefines two patios of distinct character: the first courtyard is an enclosure and has a cloister character, and the second one is more opened and dynamic.

VALLECAS 47 in Madrid, Spain by Estudio UNTERCIO

Friday, March 1st, 2013

Article source: Estudio UNTERCIO

We tried to imagine, all of us together, a dwelling in which we would like to live. Bright and open to meet with friends some of us said, intimate and in semidarkness, the laziest ones replied. A dwelling with a multiple personality. One that would be able to react to the changing seasons. One that would open itself to two different environments; on one side, a street belonging to a new urban development, but close to the urban life of Vallecas Village, and on the other side, a bounded and safe courtyard.

Domus Vitae in Ferrara, Italy by Tomas Ghisellini Architects

Thursday, January 3rd, 2013

Article source: Tomas Ghisellini Architects

A large green area, included between scenes and architectural settings, regenerates the fascination of the wonderful Delizie (marvelous country houses with huge gardens) of the Este Family, reinterpreting one of the urban issues perhaps more intimately rooted into the mental image that people keep of their city.

Social workplace Combiwerk in Delft by i29 Interior Architects and VMX Architects

Sunday, October 14th, 2012

Article source: i29 Interior Architects

Combiwerk Delft is a Social Workplace (SW) company and offers custom work to people who, due to a physical, psychological or mental limitation, are not able to find a regular job. Besides these limitations, the possibilities and talents are especially looked at. A lot has changed and the emphasis lately has been shifted more to re-integration into the regular work force. The job centre (career square) has become much more important with respect to workplaces. Training is offered and tests are done in the kitchen of the company restaurant, the cleaning service and the office. Assembling, sorting and packing are done at the workplaces. Green and environmental services are also an important branch of the social workplace. The ambitious attitude of the company is striking. There is a strong, positive culture. The new construction was intended to clearly reflect this. Despite the limited resources and a clear wish for a sober approach, the building and decoration had to radiate quality. It had to convey attention and involvement, in order to stimulate a sense of pride in its users. An environment that supports that valuable work is being done here, with special people.

Bodega in New York City by Art Meadow

Wednesday, September 19th, 2012

Article source: Matthew Hoffman

Historically, bodegas have served as social gathering centers for neighborhoods, going far beyond super markets and grocery stores by offering informal services like jobs connections and advice on finding apartments. Unfortunately, New York City’s bodegas have been closing by the hundreds over the past few years, not being able to compete with big chain stores like CVS and Duane Reade. Business Insider published a startling statistic that “in 2010 on a 33-block stretch of Broadway alone there were 137 store closures.”
