Cascades of Lights in San Jose, Costa Rica by Benjamin Garcia Saxe

Saturday, November 1st, 2014

Article source: Benjamin Garcia Saxe

Framing and fading the view become guidelines for the imagination; where an escape from the city is built and transported into a fictional world that is dancing with the wind, and light plays absorbed by its threads that catch between their frames a changing landscape.

Sunday, October 26th, 2014

Article source: Gudmundur Jonsson Arkitektkontor

The Wave-House will be situated at Ramberg-Stranden in Lofoten, Norway.  At this particular site the coast is formed as a concaved bay covered with white sand. As the sandy beach is meeting the sea with exceptionally slight and curved slope the idea is based on a wave that rises in curve creating the house.

SIOFOK PLAZA in Hungary by A4 studio Ltd.

Sunday, October 26th, 2014

Article source: A4 studio Ltd.

Already more than 200 years, Siófok is the Capital City of Lake Balaton, which is the largest lake in Middle-East Europe. We planned the “Sió Pláza” Shopping Centre into the middle of the renewable main square of the centre of the renewable downtown. The modern XXI. Century building is situated between the two historical symbols of the city, the Water Tower, was built in 1912, and the Pub, was built in 1895. Our aim was to plan a building that communicates with its environment, the historical city centre, continuously. We developed a transparent glass facade towards the main square of the city, with a cobweb-like metal screen.The shops were strung on 3 levels onto the inner shopping arcade of the shopping centre. The food and drug store received place on the minus first floor, the restaurant, branch and other services on the ground floor and the first floor. The entertainment (cinema, bowling, restaurants) is situated in the supreme floor. The building of the old Pub is integrated into the new building by the inner shopping arcade. The new functions are a bookshop and a cafe, with own garden. The remaining facades are planted with green plants.

Mother & Child welfare center in Paris, France by Rh+ architecture

Sunday, October 26th, 2014

Article source: Rh+ architecture

The project is located in the south of Paris, in a small curved street, surrounded by historical and typical french buildings of the industrial period. The low density of the neighborhood, the street shape in addition to a 2.5m difference in height give the impression of a small provincial town. In fact, the curve of the Gustave Geoffroy street gives this execeptional site several constraints that have to be used to generate a well-integrated project to its urban fabric.

Quezon daycenter in Philippines by Yuusuke Karasawa Architects

Friday, October 24th, 2014

Article source: Yuusuke Karasawa Architects

This facility is a day care center planned in the city of Quezon, located north-east of Manila, Philippines. The Philippine day care center, while its main function is a kindergarten/nursery, it also provides lodgings for the socially vulnerable and serves as a town community center. By having multiple functions, the day care center is more than just a nursery—it is a ”multi-purpose housing” made available for the city’s residents. It is a place where neighbors communicate with each other, a place of life and activities for the children and people without family. There, what is being contemplated is the proper way of a public “housing” that also provides communal functionalism.
