BUBBLE BUILDING in Shanghai, China by 3GATTI ARCHITECTURE STUDIO

Friday, October 25th, 2013

Article source: 3GATTI ARCHITECTURE STUDIO

When I moved to from Rome to Shanghai I noticed many environmental differences. One was the fact that when I looked out the window here, it didn’t give me the same good feeling like it usually did in Rome. It was probably a combination of the grey buildings, the immortal grey sky and the fact you couldn’t open the window due to the outside air pollution.

Representing the second take on the originally proposed “Bent House”, the “Bent and Sliced House” incorporates the original concept of bending the home to accommodate the curving slope of the site.

Very popular among runners and bike riders, the park provides residents and visitors with a rural escape in an urban setting.

Saturday, October 19th, 2013

Article source: BESONIAS ALMEIDA arquitectos.

Exhibited at the XIII Biennale of Architecture in Venice, August 2012

MEMORY

The Place

We had to build an apartment building in a land of 8.66m of width in Boedo, a zone of Buenos Aires that, without loosing the typical characteristics of neighborhood, has been changing its physiognomy because of the urban densification. The particularly of the land in where we have to intervene is that its back yard is adjacent with an urban square, with an important vegetation where is placed a football school and a small square. The views to this green lung match with the best orientation: the North.
