Benetton Headquarters in Tehran, Iran by Htdstudio Designoffice

Friday, May 18th, 2012

Article source: Htdstudio Designoffice

A Landmark building near Tarjish Square.
Isolation of floor units anticipate future seismic activity.  Staggered juxtaposition maximizes views, and creates various ‘green shelves’ for rain capture, irrigation, and shading during summer months.  These green shelves accommodate lush, climbing vines and vegetation for sound absorption and passive temperature control.  Cast glass discs are embedded at the ground floor and parking slabs for natural light and weight reduction.

Mini Rooftop in New York by HWKN

Thursday, May 17th, 2012

Article source: HWKN

A space for urban tastemakers without logos or branding. HWKN scouted the location, created the design and oversaw construction of the temporary event location for MINI’s ”Creative Use Of Space” campaign. The sheer surprise of encountering a hill on a roof in NYC is heightened by design elements derived from MINI cars that utilize object-in-field design, like deploying brake lights into a field of sheet metal instead of at a seam.

Music Park in Sevilla, Spain by Costa Fierros Arquitectos

Thursday, May 17th, 2012

Article source: Costa Fierros Arquitectos

The Park is located in an existing degraded area, lacking of facilities, and known historically as a land dividing the nearby quarters (Águilas and Los Prunos neighbourhoods) and isolating their inhabitants.

Before the construction of Underground Line 1 was undertaken, this area was used as the official premises for Seville’s (tour) horse carriage owners as well as later housing the constructions for the initial attempt to build the city’s underground in the 70’s. As the Line 1 was to pass through these neighbourhoods, the opportunity to revaluate the land surrounding the underground station there arouse, and the Underground project was the starting point for considering the area renovation and providing the station with a quality landscape.

Sky Light Pavilion by Nimbu

Saturday, May 12th, 2012

Article source: Nimbu

The conception of an architecture pavilion that is universal, timeless and spaceless shouldn’t be connected with the idea of conceiving a meaningless construction. Instead, an architecture pavilion that intent to be contemporary should be a construction that pursuit the architecture itself. Finnish architect Juhani Pallasmaa says that the renewal of an art, whatever it may be, means rediscovering its deepest essence, and that architecture is a direct expression of the existence, of the human presence in the world.

Residential Complex in Vallecas, Spain by Eugenio Aguinaga Architect

Saturday, May 12th, 2012

Article source: Eugenio Aguinaga

Four linear blocks were arranged on the outer perimeter of the site with a built depth of 11.40 m, to obtain cross-ventilation in all the dwellings and to achieve the largest possible surface area in the interior patio for gardens as well as the best sunlight and ventilation in the dwellings. The four blocks are joined at the corners by lateral pillasters and the lower height blocks are offset from them, thus giving continuity to the façades and forming the block.

Biodiversity and the Creation of Mobile Natural Growth by Lijbers Architects

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

Article source: Lijbers Architects

Context – Problem Definition
One way to look at the decline of natural biodiversity is from the perspective of complex human dynamics –i.e. the organized but fundamentally unpredictable behavior of human systems – and its consequences for the natural environment. We humans tend to expand, move, and reallocate ground at speeds unparalleled within the natural world. Our persistent and unpredictable need for space, land, and raw materials causes the original natural environment to diminish, along with its ecosystem of plants and animals. The highly dynamic reallocation and changing of the earth’s habitat by human action falls short in providing vulnerable species of plants and animals with sufficient time to recover. The continuous cycle of removing and reallocating natural space can, in the best case, maintain a certain amount of the “natural environment”, yet it can never maintain the same level of biodiversity that was originally present.

The Atrium in Victoria, B.C. by D’Ambrosio Architecture + Urbanism

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

Article source: D’Ambrosio Architecture + Urbanism

The Atrium, a high-density mid-rise office building set in a transitional area of downtown Victoria, challenged its architects: how can a speculatively-built office building revitalize a moribund area and enrich the community at large? How can the economics of high-density, downtown office buildings work in a mid-rise, green-building form?

  •  Architects: D’Ambrosio Architecture + Urbanism
  • Project: The Atrium -Victoria, B.C.
  • Location: Victoria, B.C.
  • Client : Jawl Investment Corp.
  • Software used: Vectorworks CAD predominantly, as well as Sketch-up professional and photoshop. The architects built many physical models of wood and paper board.The wood trusses and the concrete superstructure of the building were both computer modeled (dynamic models to test behavior during seismic events) by the fabricators ‘Structurecraft’ and ‘Stantec’ respectively.

Occupying the length of a city block, the Atrium actively engages its civic context. To complement Victoria’s historical downtown, and reintegrate the block into its urban fabric, the building takes a mid-rise form, built to the street walls to give definition to the public realm. The building’s palette of natural, durable materials invests the district with a welcome sense of commitment.

A transparent ground floor houses cafes and restaurants, inviting people to approach, look in, and stay a while. Rain gardens edge the site, a first for a private development in Victoria, catching and cleaning polluted street run-off, and softening the cityscape.

A seven-storey atrium introduces daylight into the heart of the structure, and maximizes the use of wood in non-combustible construction. The wood, visible from the street through a seven-storey glass wall, distinguishes the atrium from the surrounding offices, and invites the public to animate this urban room. Community groups have taken up the invitation, using the atrium to host such events as an opera performance and a film festival reception.

To create a more animated urban space, the project team commissioned an artist to design an installation for the atrium.  This installation treats the atrium floor as a canvas for an abstract mosaic. The work is derived from the building’s lines and uses local marble tiles. Wood sculptures complement the mosaic’s lines, and provide places to sit.

Overhead, innovative wood trusses support a 7,200 square-foot skylight.  Panelized hemlock slats follow the sweep of the atrium’s curving walls, and tongue and groove cedar soffits bring warmth and definition to the building’s street level. The family-owned company that commissioned the building ran one of the first lumber companies on Vancouver Island, a history that enriches the meaning of using wood in the atrium.

The atrium not only serves as a public room, but it acts as a return air plenum in the building’s highly efficient displacement ventilation system. Conditioned air is delivered near the floor, so the air requires less cooling. Convection draws the air to heat-generating occupants and equipment, where it’s needed. As the air warms, it rises naturally to exhaust through the ceiling. Displacement ventilation uses less energy to deliver higher quality air more quietly, and is a key component in the building’s LEED Gold-targeted environmental strategies.

Photo © silentSama

A primary ambition for the Atrium was to create a building that will endure, and that will earn the regard of people who will help it to endure. In doing so, the Atrium gives weight to urban fit, sustainability, and occupant well-being as well as to profitability. While an institutional or owner-occupied office building might achieve a similar balance of priorities, as a speculative office building the Atrium raises the standard for its type.

Acadia Parish Conference Center in Crowley, Louisiana by Trahan Architects

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

Article source: Trahan Architects

Located to the north-east of Crowley, the site lies between the urban/residential development to the west and the rural/agricultural development to the east. The design seeks to mediate this threshold and express the importance of the local agricultural development to place. Rice is the primary economy in the Parish and city of Crowley. Rice fields create a beautiful mosaic that blanket the landscape. Contours follow the natural topography, control water run-off and delineate rice paddies. As technology has advanced the rice fields have evolved from a more fluid configuration to a more orthogonal configuration. This results in a more efficient layout and maximizes the yield.
