The site is by the Station of the Yokohama suburban area, center of the emerging suburban district where the population of young families keeps growing.
Several large shopping facilities are scattered and form a unique suburban  townscape, still it is hard to say that it is attractive enough as a town or an urban space, despite those attractive facilities, active urban planning and many young and energetic people.

Competition for Mo I Rana Waterfront (1st place) in Norway by arkitektgruppen cubus

Saturday, February 22nd, 2014

Article source: arkitektgruppen cubus

Mo i Rana has always had a primarily functional relationship to the fjord, which has been one of two major transport systems serving the local industries of iron- and concrete production, the other being the railway. The town is located far inland and the fjord has always served as a main connection with the rest of the world. The railway has served as the other main pulse connecting the town to the east and south, in addition to the two main roads E6 and E12. The railway track runs straight through the centre of the town and acts as a physical barrier between the town proper and the fjord, only surmounted by bridges or underground tunnels. This prevents the establishment of a physical and programmatic continuity linking the two.

Family house Palkovice in Frýdek-Místek, Czech Republic by QARTA ARCHITEKTURA

Saturday, February 22nd, 2014

Article source: QARTA ARCHITEKTURA

The house is situated in the periphery of Palkovice, nearby Frýdek Místek. From this site is the view of the Beskydy mountains. The first idea was to reconstruct the old house on this parcel. The original house was situated in the middle of the garden and the architecture of the house was a product of the nineties of the 20th century. After a long effort to modify the old house and to adapt it for the new requirements, we have find out, this is not the right way. So we have decided to build a new house.
