Birraria Giori in Ferrara, Italy by Rizoma Architetture

Sunday, May 22nd, 2016

Article source: Rizoma Architetture

Birraria Giori is located in the centre of Ferrara at the feet of the Este Castle. Its prime location meant that it was very important to take into consideration the historical surroundings. The design was based on the principle objective of restoring the front of the bar which is part of series of arches facing the town hall, know as the “covered way”, part of the Vice-Legato palace dating back to 1877. The primary aim of the project was to “clean up” the original structure or design, stripping off the numerous additions and modifications from over the years to reveal the original form and materiality of the arch, and to provide continuation with the rest of the walkway. The gazebo remains intact, and the windows and a new second ceiling are designed around a motif that reflects the famous lantern which burns at the foot of the Este Castle. The interiors are characterised by the use of wood and stone, the shades of the plaster and the tones of the interior reflect the the equilibrium between the old and the modern. The triangular facets of the new bench seating and also the ceiling, decorated with golden flashes, are based on the rustication of the Palazzo dei Diamanti, the most important historical building of Ferrara.

Floating levee piers to trap sediment and divert freshwater:

The idea behind this project attempts to combine an architecture with technology, where by-products of new materials create impossible forms because computer technology has become an inherent part of the design process, such is the application of typology in this project.

Centennial College Ashtonbee Campus Library & Student Hub in Ontario, Canada by MacLennan Jaunkalns Miller Architects

Thursday, May 19th, 2016

Article source: MacLennan Jaunkalns Miller Architects 

Centennial College is the oldest publicly funded college in Ontario with four campuses serving the Greater Toronto Area east. Near a major intersection and in the Golden Mile neighbourhood of Toronto, the Ashtonbee Campus serves as the largest transportation technology training school in Canada. The campus is surrounded by residential, parklands, and is situated within a retail / commercial / light industrial typology. While generating successful industry partnerships and a thriving training program, the circa 1970’s campus suffered from safety concerns, accessibility issues, aging infrastructure, and lacked student support services and social gathering spaces.

This project explores the different possibilities and repercussions of developing a new space, which in this case is an architectural device that not only takes care of a need – a workshop for an architecture student – but also modifies the image of a space with little architectural interest: the roof of a service-bedroom.
