GNRation in Braga, Portugal by Atelier Carvalho Araújo

Wednesday, July 24th, 2013

Article source: Atelier Carvalho Araújo

The intervention in the former building of the GNR (military police) brings together all the concept of dynamism of Braga European Youth Capital 2012. The project uses the concept of occupation as motif. The occupation by man and nature. It explores the boundary between an abandoned existing structure and a new invasor construction who takes over the space. A space in constant regeneration, rather than a final object.

West End Ferry Terminal in Brisbane, Australia by COX Rayner Architects

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013

Article source: COX Rayner Architects

The West End Ferry Terminal is a small project that was designed to simultaneously generate a new typology for Brisbane’s Citycat Terminals and act as a sheltered social gathering space at the end of one of Brisbane’s historic riverfront parks, one endeared in the hearts of the West End community.
As a result, the whole conception of the terminal was subject to many community consultation events, most originally opposing removal of an existing brick post-war facility which had insurmountable CEPTED issues.

Article source: JAPA architects 

Since 2000, China’s cities have expanded at an average rate of 10% annually. Although China’s agricultural output is the largest in the world, only about 15% of its total land area can be cultivated. China’s arable land, which represents 10% of the total arable land in the world, supports over 20% of the world’s population. Of this approximately 1.4 million square kilometers of arable land, only about 1.2% (116,580 square kilometers) permanently supports crops and 525,800 square kilometers are irrigated. The land is divided into approximately 200 million households, with an average land allocation of just 0.65 hectares (1.6 acres)

Gottshalden in zurich, Switzerland by Rossetti + Wyss Architekten

Sunday, July 21st, 2013

Article source: Rossetti + Wyss Architekten 

The house in Gottshalden is located on a plateau over the Lake Zurich. It is set in green surroundings with a high quality of life, dominated by agriculturaluse. The volume exhibits a unified design, with a reduced, sharp-angled timber facade. The furniture-like wooden skin defines both walls and rooftops, covering the exterior in a single material, unbroken. The various geometries lend the structure plasticity, while the windows flush with the exterior, are emphasized with lighter-colored reveals.
