“Design Lab in the desert” in Piura, Peru by Jorge Losada

Thursday, October 15th, 2015

Article source: Jorge Losada

The City of Piura, located in the desert of Sechura, it is surrounded by sand and dunes and the river, named after the city, barely generates a shy green corridor. However, in this difficult context, the University of Piura managed to reforest approximately a hundred and fifty hectares with a dry woodland, an oasis based on algarrobo trees where the University could settle their facilities.

Notariaat 2.0 – Continuous Landscape in Horebeke, Belgium by Atelier Vens Vanbelle

Thursday, October 15th, 2015

Article source: Atelier Vens Vanbelle

The original notary, which interacts with its surroundings in a very specific way, was put into use only five years ago. Thus it was a mental struggle to respond to the request for an extension. Well conceived design does not tolerate continuation or copy, so a radically different approach was needed. On a six-month period an abstract mirror box on a black base rose along the street. A transparent passageway between these two volumes replaces the former entrance of the building.

Article source: HIBINOSEKKEI + Youji no Shiro 

The site is surrounded by rice field where wind blows through well.

This is one of the areas with much quantity of wind-generated electricity in Japan, and this project is based on the concept of “wind”.

Planning is layout corridor of the ring shape as an image that wind around and each room volume as blade of the windmill.

Consequently, even while maintaining the independence, there is a sense of unity through the corridor and courtyard.
