New Belgrade Fountain in Serbia by Studio Alfirevic

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015

Article source: Studio Alfirevic

Fountain is located in front of the municipal building in New Belgrade (Serbia), designed in brutalism expression (Arch. Stojan Maksimovic and Branislav Jovin). The design of the fountain is an allegory of the time and the process of New Belgrade formation, as one of the most important modernist city parts of the former socialist Yugoslavia. In a contemporary way fountain evokes the appearance of the first collective housing buildings, which were erected in the area that was formed in the draining and filling wetlands process. Reduced visual expression, materialized in a minimalist manner, almost at the level of primordial symbols, is a reminiscence of extensive construction and architectural operations, which are conducted in order to form a new part of Belgrade, which was the capital of Yugoslavia.

House in Kamisawa, Japan by Tato Architects

Sunday, May 24th, 2015

Article source: Tato Architects

This building is a reconfiguration of a traditional Japanese wooden house. Its wooden frames were exposed after the removal of unnecessary parts. Only by inserting curved walls into it, spatial functions were created. A similar challenge was experienced in the process of designing “Hut with the Arc Wall”, a public toilet in Shodoshima. There, space was defined by a 9mm steel curved wall, which was built under the wooden roof structure by reference to traditional soy sauce factories in that area. An inspiration from cedar barrels of say source was formalized in the curved wall, which showed an aesthetic of self- supporting structure. The only thing to be regrettable was newly built wooden frames. Ideally, it should have been moved from an old house around that area and rebuilt in a new place, but the required tight schedule didn’t allow us to spend time to look for a suitable existing building. However, since then, we have seen it as a distinctive potential for reconfigurations to divide space with curved walls, which is not related to the outer structure.

SOCIAL HOUSING AND KINDERGARTEN IN PARIS, France by GAETAN LE PENHUEL ARCHITECTES

Sunday, May 24th, 2015

Article source: GAETAN LE PENHUEL ARCHITECTES

Urban resources

Paris’s 11th arrondissement combines the city’s highest population density with one of its lowest green space totals. Set back from Boulevard Richard Lenoir, this large plot has been pre-emptively acquired by the City of Paris with a view to creating, along Impasse Truillot, a new public garden edged with social housing units and a crèche for 60 infants. The ultimate aim is a major green strip running from the forecourt of the church of Saint Ambroise to Boulevard Richard Lenoir. Whatever comes of this handsome urban project, currently awaiting the acquisition and demolition of business premises, the building fit with the size of the planned park.

Tiny shanghai shop into little catch fishmonger in China by LINEHOUSE

Wednesday, May 20th, 2015

Article source: LINEHOUSE

Located on one of Shanghai’s busiest streets alive with local food stalls, small restaurants, shops and sidewalk activity, Little Catch is a fishmonger specialising in fresh and cooked seafood. LINEHOUSE created a three dimensional net that externally reaches into the street as a canopy and envelops the customers as they enter into the shop. On the ceiling the net, constructed out of a white powder coated metal structure infilled with white mesh of varying densities and transparencies, opens up in areas to create additional shelving for products. On the walls the metal structure folds and bends to hold the fresh seafood display, the cashier, product shelving and a table seating two.

REVELEY CLASSROOM BUILDING in Moscow, Idaho by Patano Studio Architecture

Wednesday, May 20th, 2015

Article source: Patano Studio Architecture

Initial site visits at the University of Idaho Pitkin Nursery revealed hoop houses, metal sheds and stacks of planter boxes. Beginning with the idea of a wood box floating on the undulating sea of the Palouse, the design team set out to stitch together the program, landscape and the materiality of Idaho forest products. The college wanted to extend their public outreach in addition to nursery research functions. The outstretched ramps and decks reach out to the landscape and invite the public and students to the building. The Sales Office was pulled through the wood screen as a way to express itself beyond the functions of classroom, offices, and social gathering. The weathering cedar wood screen that stands off the building was imagined as a modern western storefront. The repetition of stacked boxes was intriguing; we saw that as the piece that expressed the transition from working nursery to classroom. The cedar wood screen is the threshold element for faculty and students to step through the gap between the two elements; wood screen and black box.
