Momentary City in Hefei, China by Vector Architects

Friday, July 31st, 2015

Article source: Vector Architects 

Like many other cities in China, Hefei is undergoing a rapid transformation. The original urban fabric was torn apart and discarded, replaced by giant blocks of anonymous structures and forms. The present Hefei is just a fleeting moment on its relentless march toward the future. So, we call it a “Momentary City”.

Single Family Housing Correnteza 21 in Lisboa, Portugal by HUMBERTO CONDE

Friday, July 31st, 2015

Article source: HUMBERTO CONDE

This intervention seeks to maintain only the two main existing facades of the building, at North and East, given the high degree of deterioration of the overall volume. Although the existing building is not a remarkable architectural example and with construction quality, contributes to the cohesion of the urban image of the set to which it belongs, so the maintenance of facades allow the continuity of the dialogue between the building and the context in which it operates.

“DETACHED HOUSE IN DROSIA”, in ATHENS, Greece by Katerina Valsamaki

Sunday, July 26th, 2015

Article source:  Katerina Valsamaki

The 580sqm detached house is organized in the form of an L shape inside the oblong site and accommodates a four member family. The integration of the residence into a semi-urban environment is dealt with as a scenario of revelation and dissimulation between private, public and semi-public space; that is to say creating a fluidity of the limits between the living spaces and the public spaces of the building, without however underestimating the importance of privacy. The garden is the focal point of the residence.
