A STADIUM TO THE CITY in Belo Horizonte, Brazil by BCMF Arquitetos

Friday, August 23rd, 2013

A STADIUM TO THE CITY

Belo Horizonte. A modernist building in a modernist landscape.

Mineirão Stadium and Pampulha neighborhood were conceived during the 40´s, at the beginning of the structuralist fever that would conduct the economic policies of Brazil during the following decades. Not by coincidence, Pampulha´s mentor was Juscelino Kubitschek, then mayor of the city of Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, who granted commissions to vanguard professionals such as young Oscar Niemeyer and Roberto Burle Marx to capture the essence of his modern envisions. Quite a successful essay for his Brasilia from 1960.

Westboro Home in Ottawa, Canada by Kariouk Associates

Saturday, August 10th, 2013

Article source: Kariouk Associates

DESIGN CHALLENGE:

The site for this home was a narrow lot in a downtown neighborhood, which carried with it extensive code limitations on side windows. A further challenge was negotiating the difference in grade between the two neighbouring lots:an already steeply sloping site, the neighbours to the West raised their rear yard an additional 1.5m, ultimately creating a difference in neighbouring lot heights of approximately 2.5m

Ananta Legian Hotel in Bali, Indonesia by Airmas Asri

Tuesday, July 30th, 2013

Article source: Airmas Asri

The concept of Ananta Legian Hotel lobby is inspired by BentarTemple which is described as a ”Kori Agung” that functioned as a gate. The grand steps towards the Lobby from the lower floor express the greatness of the Lobby as the “Kori Agung”. The balinese Serai stones are used in the building facade together with the pond and water fountain around the lobby to create ambience of balinese temple and the place of sacred liturgy of Hindu ceremony by pedanda—the high priest in Bali.

School extension in Antwerp, Belgium by Areal architecten

Friday, July 26th, 2013

Article source: Areal architecten 

Like the existing school (a modernist volume from the 50’s) embraces the main playground, the extension is positioned in a way that areas of security arise in its inner corners. The new volume integrates the pragmatic logic of the school campus, but not without creating some witty and special interventions adding functional value.
