Wendy by HWKN

Friday, July 6th, 2012

Article source: HWKN

Wendy does not play the typical architecture game of ecological apology – instead she is pro-active. That is why Wendy is composed of PVC mesh treated with a ground breaking titania nanoparticle spray to neutralize airborne pollutants. During the summer of 2012 Wendy will clean the air to an equivalent of taking 260 cars off the road.

Rosa F. Keller Library & Community Center in New Orleans, Louisiana by Eskew+Dumez+Ripple

Sunday, July 1st, 2012

Article source: Eskew+Dumez+Ripple

This New Orleans neighborhood library is comprised of two buildings joined together with the intention that they function as a whole. One building is a historically significant bungalow built as a residence in 1917, sited prominently on the corner of South Broad Street and Napoleon Avenue. The other building, built in 1993 specifically to function as a library, was home to the main reading room and stock areas. Both buildings were severely flooded by levee breaks attributed to Hurricane Katrina. The bungalow was salvaged and raised for future flood prevention, but the modern addition was deemed necessary for replacement by the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA).

ICEBERG by RIZOMA Architetture

Thursday, June 28th, 2012

Article source: RIZOMA Architetture

ICEBERG is an ideal set for a new and innovative hairdressing shop. The shop is located next to coffee shops and commercial spaces so the external brise-soleil, which create the internal privacy, become the main theme of the project. A white wave that from the facade enters in the shop and becomes a wallpaper and modifies the interior space. The interior design reminds a seascape “post-ice-age”.
