Iponweb company office in Moscow, Russia by Za Bor Architects

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

Article source: Za Bor Architects

As it happened, a central place in the portfolio of the architectural workshop za bor is occupied by the offices of companies working in the sphere of information technologies.

First of all it is related to the quite informal and creative atmosphere which such companies try to create for their employees. However the IT company Iponweb office, although in general it corresponds to this tendency, stands out due to both its unique architectural space and neutral colour grade which no office project by the architectural workshop za bor has ever had before.

Zaryadye Park in Moscow, Russia by Maxwan architects + urbanists

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

Article source: Maxwan architects + urbanists

Our goal for this project is simply the creation of a timeless park that has great value for centuries to come. This is an informal and dynamic park that can adopt future trends and changes of use. We deny a formal, static, trendy and ’wow!’ oriented park that only relates to current circumstances and stays ‘hip’ for a short while.

DIAMOND CITY in Adelaide, Australia by Tom Wiscombe Design

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

Article source:  Tom Wiscombe Design

We propose an interior city existing inside a mysterious diamond-like object. The approach stands in opposition to conventional master planning, where a set of reductive instructions such as building use, open space, and setbacks inherently undermine any tendency towards massively dense or monolithic forms. This building is not a map of history, a reified system of flows, or an evolutionary diagram.

Sunnyslope Sustainable Office in Phoenix, Arizona by Marlene Imirzian & Associates Architects

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

Article source: Marlene Imirzian & Associates Architects 

Through simple sustainable design, the Sunnyslope Sustainable Office shows the potential to shift the paradigm of ubiquitous small Phoenix commercial lots from asphalt covered parking to a sustainable, urban place.  Combining repurposed, recycled materials with native desert landscaping the modest 1950s building was renovated for the Architect’s office.  At the entrance a courtyard of translucent panels is a welcoming entry and provides usable outdoor space.

Wagner Education Center at The Center for Wooden Boats in SEATTLE by OLSON KUNDIG ARCHITECTS

Wednesday, November 13th, 2013

Article source: OLSON KUNDIG ARCHITECTS

SEATTLE – Construction of the new $6.6 million Wagner Education Center at The Center for Wooden Boats (CWB) is scheduled to begin this winter. Designed by award-winning Seattle architect Tom Kundig of Olson Kundig Architects, the building harkens back to historic Northwest boatbuilding facilities while at the same time serves as a modern front door for the growing museum, Lake Union Park and the surrounding South Lake Union neighborhood. Kundig’s interest in creating shape-shifting structures will be evident in the Wagner Education Center, where large windows flank interior spaces and movable exterior panels shift up or down to allow for the control of natural light and open or close the building.

adiaHouse | Low-Cost Internationally Transportable Eco- Kit Homes in Houston, Texas by Adia

Tuesday, November 12th, 2013

Article source: Adia

Affordable, elegant, eco-friendly homes delivered internationally—any size, any style, anywhere in the world.

Lack of affordable housing is a serious problem around the world, and it’s been Adia’s focus for almost a decade now. When our “$12,000 Green Dream Home” (MCDhouse) made international news in 2009, floods of emails came in from across the globe. It seemed to give people hope. It made young people who can barely afford to rent leap at the thought of owning their own home. It made families with children dream of healthy, all natural housing. It delighted the elderly looking for small elegant homes to down-size into in retirement. It perked political interest on multiple continents. An ultra-affordable, eco-friendly house seemed to strike a chord in everyone.
