TOP! Store in Salacgriva, Latvia by ARHIS ARHITEKTI

Saturday, April 4th, 2015

Article source: ARHIS ARHITEKTI

The building is created for two scales of perception – towards the VIA Baltica highway it is designed as a linear volume to be perceived in movement, its form and material – wooden planks reminds Salacgrivas historical ship crafting tradition. On the other side, facing Riga Street and a pedestrian walkway, a smaller scale facade is designed which plastic-ally flows into the public space and is close to pedestrian’s scale of perception. New interior conception and colour principles were created to improve the style of the grocery store chain.

Nike Union Square Flagship Installation in San Francisco, California by FreelandBuck

Thursday, April 2nd, 2015

Article source: FreelandBuck

As part of Nike’s overhaul of their flagship store on Union Square, our two-story lobby installation is a dynamic array of over 600 reclaimed bleachers which cantilever out over the escalator leading into the store. The well-worn bleacher board, a material Nike has used in numerous stores to convey familiarity and use, is organized here as a set of vectors that flow through the lobby. Ideally, the anomalies of the material are enough to disrupt the smoothness of the geometry, while the unstable, precarious array disrupts a purely nostalgia reading of the bleachers yielding a wider range of associations.

Horizon in Knokke-Heist, Belgium by BOGDAN & VAN BROECK

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015

Article source: BOGDAN & VAN BROECK

ELEMENTARY AND PRIMARY SCHOOL IN OPEN LANDSCAPE | OPEN CALL ORGANISED BY THE FLEMISH GOVERNMENT ARCHITECT, 2nd LAUREATE

The historical permanent presence of the polder landscape is experienced as a quality of the site that is to be protected, and it is also used as a source of design choices. The typology of the school buildings is designed analogous to that of the polder farms as solitary volumes in the landscape. The outdoor space is structured as a landscape similar to the diverse and flexible patchwork of different fields in the polder.

RENOVA STORE & THEATRE in Torres Novas, Portugal by Paulo Henrique Durão, Architect

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015

Article source: Paulo Henrique Durão, Architect

There was, from the beginning, the intent to work this project as a machine, a TIME CAPTURING MACHINE. This condition was naturally the result of the place, the context and the industrial spirit, that penetrated the imagination. Condition to which it was added the will to capture, within the project, time and its flow. A flow of time and light into the spaces that would say – the architecture captures time, architecture captures the flow of time.

Multifunctional Sports Hall in Cluj-Napoca, Romania by DICO și ȚIGĂNAȘ

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015

Article source: DICO și ȚIGĂNAȘ

Cluj – Napoca is a city of young people with 25% of its population studying in universities. Student life means also sports and the tradition is consistent. The new Multifunctional Sports Hall is the newest piece of public infrastructure for training, championships and cultural events, in a building conceived to be part of an ensemble together with Cluj Arena, the soccer and athletics stadium also designed by Dico and Tiganas and opened in 2011. Both objectives have generated new public spaces relating the Central Garden of the City with the river Some banks promenades, towards a Sports park and another public garden in a sequence of public spaces of almost 2 kilometers. The envelope of the building is a simple box including another box which contains the main hall, of 7.000 seats and up to 10.000 people for concerts. The facade is an assemblage of layers reflecting and transmitting the light into the foyers inside. The outer mask is mesh of parametrically distorted rectangles inspired by the nets used in several ball sports. The perforated steel plates are forming 3D pyramids reflecting the sky and the sun at every time in different angles and colored effects. The building has a permanent dialogue with the people from the street through the challenge to read the geometry of the facades, being the same time introverted. Inside the public will be guided by 4 thematic colors corresponding with the cardinals. The main hall is a stage and a backstage in the same time, bringing together the public and the performers in a black box with all equipments apparent but camouflaged. From shinning white with golden accents to dark grey and black ambiance, from outside to inside and backwards, architecture is built by light and colors.

Metro Station in Sofia, Bulgaria by Radu DRAGAN

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015

Article source: Radu DRAGAN

Located in an environment that lacked strong marks, the Metro Station 20 should be a signal, a structural element of the landscape, it must be at its scale. We have designed a structure that is both generous and sensual, with a glass volume curves embracing the ground and reaching the underground platform level by penetrating light and vegetation. The structure consists of 27 metal arches on a plot of 4,00 m, of variable height and width, starting from the rail level. The height varies between 19 and 24 m and the width between 17,80 m et 30 m. They are connected by a secondary structure of metal tubes that support the triangular glass panels. This structure also supports the road that enters into the glass volume and will form a bridge of 105 m length suspended from the metal structure. In its central part, this bridge will be slightly curved to give greater height above the access platform.

MIKVEH “Ramat Shalom” in México City, Mexico by Pascal Arquitectos

Tuesday, March 31st, 2015

Article source: Pascal Arquitectos

This is the Jewish ritual purification bath.  It can be only performed in fresh spring water, or in a specially dedicated place fed by rain water which has to be collected, stored and communicated to the bath recipient which is called the Mikveh.  All of this, has to be done following a series of very strict rules regarding the status of purity of the water.  These rules include also the use of the materials, architectural measures and water treatment.
