Villa B in Blankenheim, Germany by Schneider+Schumacher

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Article source: Schneider+Schumacher

In 2010, an architectural and landscape limited competition was launched by the municipality of Blankenheim, together with the Regionale 2010 Agentur. It resulted in schneider+schumacher winning first prize with their finely judged answer to the competition brief. This asked for suggestions as to how the former Roman manor – the Villa Rustica – might once again be made visible to the public. Taking up this challenge as their point of departure, the architects have now enhanced the Eifel region with a decidedly sculptural, walk-in installation.

Vertebrae Staircase by Andrew Lee McConnell

Saturday, March 16th, 2013

Article source: Andrew Lee McConnell

Inspired by the spine of a whale, the Vertebrae Staircase is not simply mimicry of organic form but an exploration in shaping structure. Much of the design work went into refining the single component, or vertebra, that mate with each other creating a unified spine running from floor plate to floor plate. These interlocking vertebrae create a rigid and self-supporting structure.

Green Dot Animo Leadership High School in South Los Angeles by Brooks + Scarpa Architects

Wednesday, March 6th, 2013

Article source: Brooks + Scarpa Architects

This new public school for 500 students is located in a tough South Los Angeles neighborhood almost directly under the flight path into LAX and adjacent to the very busy 105 Century freeway.  The design was influenced by the New Orleans architects Curtis and Davis who designed and built many schools in the early 1950s in Louisiana.  Their designs adapted to the harsh southern climate without using air conditioning, creating sustainable light filled and poetic spaces for kids to learn.

5.6 House in Sarzeau, France by Avignon-Clouet Architectes

Saturday, March 2nd, 2013

Article source: Avignon-Clouet Architectes

Situated on the west coast (Morbihan), this resort house crouches in its own field as if to protect itself from the sea’s spray. Entirely made of concrete and granite, its mineral appearance welcomes with sensitivity, the shadows due to light changes. Perforated by many patios, the house integrates some framing on of the capricious sky of the west coast. The long sunshades remind the sand fences guiding walkers along the coast paths.

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

Article source: NADAAA

In South Korea, the study, design, and sales of housing have developed into a discipline serving an ascendant middle class with amenities and technologies that are significantly sophisticated. The “model home gallery,” a nexus for consumerist desires and corporate strategy, not only contains sales offices with model homes, but also a variety of public amenities for the adjacent community. Art galleries, restaurants, cafés, auditorim, and other public open spaces foster favorable relationships with area residents, thus expanding the customer base and fueling the housing economy.
