Sunday, August 21st, 2016

Article source: PLASMA Studio

Tetris House is derived from the transformation of very pragmatic parameters into a spatially engaging concept. Multiple programmatic demands (five self-contained units, parking spaces and other covered exterior areas) have initiated two volumes. L-shaped in plan and section, they are spatially interwoven to produce a range of dynamic interstitial spaces.

VIL – Creative Office in Pasadena, California by Domaen

Tuesday, August 16th, 2016

Article source: Domaen

The project VIL is an interior build-out in an existing warehouse for the Los Angeles headquarters of the content and production agency Conscious Minds. A main architectural feature is a continuous surface sheet forming an articulated ceiling and simultaneously folding around two conference spaces. The digital surface manipulation follows in part pragmatic stipulations but also creates a divided two-material sheet that appears to artificially tear at the seams to allow glimpses into the otherwise enclosed conference rooms.

Article source: JMA

In response to the Hungarian government’s noble mission to erect new buildings for six important cultural institutions that are to be located within the City Park in Budapest, this design concept focuses on the museums of architecture and photography. The concept encompasses all aspects of the design program so as to present the jury, and the Hungarian people, with architectural works of art in both structure and landscape, that distinguish both the Hungarian culture and the whole of Europe in a world-renown manner. The concept intends to present works of art housing works of art harmoniously, providing an intriguing dynamic that will draw all visitors to its environs in a manner that simultaneously embraces interaction, enriches cultural pride, and satisfies a desire for an experiential aesthetic that will be immeasurably fulfilling and long-lasting.
