Flor del Campo in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia by Giancarlo Mazzanti + Felipe Mesa

Friday, March 30th, 2012

Article source: Giancarlo Mazzanti + Felipe Mesa

This project is characterized by four “Rings”, each of which is defined by two levels with different thicknesses, rounding different playgrounds. The perimeter is as important as the interior space formed by the rings, projecting physical areas that can express the function that will be developed. It was inspired by the shapes of tropical plants and trees in the area, taking us to a recreational atmosphere of games, educational exchanges, etc.

Liberty Hill Residence in San Francisco, California by Surface design, Inc.

Thursday, March 29th, 2012

Article source: Surface design, Inc.

This garden in San Francisco has dedicated areas for entertaining and children’s play, which are defined and navigated by an innovative arrangement of local and sustainable landscape materials. Cor-Ten steel boxes serve as retaining structures and planters, extending along the site’s perimeter and penetrating the surrounding wood fence. The garden is an abstracted allusion to the dramatic topography of the city itself.

The site's steep slope creates a visual connection with the city beyond

Museo del Acero Horno3 in Monterrey, Mexico by Surfacedesign Inc. + Harari arquitectos

Thursday, March 29th, 2012

Article source: Surfacedesign Inc.+ Harari arquitectos

Project Statement

A team of international designers collaborated to transform a decommissioned blast furnace and a brownfield site into a modern history museum dedicated to the region’s rich history of steel production. Borrowing from materials endemic to the site, innovative landscape design weaves together with modern architecture to usher an old relic into the 21st century. Environmentally sensitive technologies — such as green roofs and a storm water collection system — offer a new approach to the landscape while respecting the original context.

Spröjs Villa by Visiondivision

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

Article source: Visiondivision

The Spröjs Villa is a modern style summer house for people with high architectonical taste. The building is based on the Spröjs modular system and can grow in length to any size requested. The house could be just 30 m2, being a small pavilion, to being a slick 200 m2 villa. The house modular system is on every façade as well as the roof. In its original design the spröjs serves as beds, kitchen tables, sofas as well as bath tubs or pretty much any use that can be fitted into the Spröjs grid. The house slim floor plan does so that you will never be more than two meters from the outside and its open facades creates a house that always are in close contact with the outside just as a summer villa should be.

Into the landscape in Seljord, Norway by Rintala Eggertsson Architects

Tuesday, March 27th, 2012

Article source: Rintala Eggertsson Architects

The students of  NABA,  Politecnico di Milano and Fredrikstad Scenography School designed and constructed three structures around the lake  Seljord in Telemark county South Norway.

The structures had three main reasons to be built, firstly to be used as stopping places for travelers and tourists, secondly to serve as meeting points for the local inhabitants, and thirdly to comment on the local stories of a sea serpent, a continuing myth with frequent observations spanning over a hundred years of time.  At the same time, this workshop is also part of larger activity, a project called Seljord and the legends, developed and curated by Springer Kulturstudio and Feste landscape architects, organized to revitalize the local economy and to invite more people to move to the area which today suffers of desertification and aging processes.

Spire in Våler, Norway by Visiondivision

Article source: Visiondivision

The church in the small town of Våler in Norway burned down and a competition was held to build a new one. We joined the competition with the following entry. It is in the rural church that the people in a village is experiencing its most emotional moments; this is where the kids run out on the last day of school, it is here you get married and it is here you bid farewell to your loved ones.

Gentilly by Emmanuel COMBAREL Dominique MARREC Architects

Sunday, March 25th, 2012

Article source: COMBAREL Dominique MARREC Architects

The project is primarily a proposal to articulate two territories, two urban landscapes separated by the influence of the device. This context of urban fringe releases a vast expanse where the vacuum is dominant, where the eye can see far. This work on the perception and interpretation of the landscape gives a facade gable major pivotal role. Whether from the device or from the streets of Gentilly, pine nuts are present, dominant in the interpretation of the building. The curvatures of the device and the notion of displacement generate a reading in perspective with always at least two fronts seen: the building will be seen from afar on the short sides, its angles. This unique landscape offers little end in front geometrical perception. We wanted to work on the expression of a complex volume to avoid any single side effect and literal as you can see the first door of Orleans, but instead propose a volume and a façade treatment that back and forth to unify the building over its entire periphery. So there is a unity of place generated for a project that must itself generate visual continuity, articulate landscapes, offering a calm picture, stretched taut between two territories.
