Wednesday, May 1st, 2013

Article source: Stefan Al Architects

Reviving the Vision

One hundred fifty years ago, Khedive Ismail imagined a progressive urban scheme for Cairo that brought the city to the forefront of the world. This projects attempts to revive his vision in a current way. It brings back the once exciting landscape of Azbakia Garden, including a lake, artificial hills, thousands of lights, and spaces for musical performances. A spectacular Opera House and a range of artistic spaces offer the city cultural delights. New transportation structures, underground parking, a tramway, and pleasant pedestrian spaces allow for convenient and efficient access. Finally, contemporary architecture and high-rises lend an image to the area that rivals with any world-class city.

4 Dwellings in Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain by Patxi Cortazar

Wednesday, May 1st, 2013

Article source: Patxi Cortazar

The plot is located at the historic centre of Vitoria-Gasteiz, near to Santa María Cathedral, at the corner of this “Canton” and Txikita Street. The project is made by petition of the homeowners’ association. The original building, and unclassified 19th century building, is demolished because of its state of ruin. The ordinance of new construction defines in an exhaustive way the standards of the new shape, that requires the reduction of its occupation to leave available the continuity of its inside pipe. Thus, the new building is separated from the bowling alley located at the high part of the Cantón of Santa María.

4B in Copenhagen, Denmark by Holscher Arkitekter

Tuesday, April 30th, 2013

Article source: Holscher Arkitekter

In the centre of Copenhagen, close to Nyboder, Holscher Arkitekter has designed and constructed a residential project on a very narrow site of seven meters. The structure is unusual in its form, in its detailing and in its relation to the city.

The project 4B consists of a slim structure of glass, a plaster gable and a light cladding of Tombac. From the ground to the fourth floor the building is facing north and south. The structure is extruded from the street to the courtyard taking a cue in height from the tall adjacent red brick house and forming a white plaster wall against the 3 storey neighboring house.

Urban Collage in Champigny-sur-Marne, France by Maison Edouard François

Friday, April 26th, 2013

Article source: Maison Edouard François

At Champigny-sur-Marne, respect of the context and the refusal to interpret it led us to take a unique position. The site is a grand ensemble that was built in the 1970’s : a large zone of housing filled with towers and multi-story housing blocks near the old town center. The program asked for an urban renewal plan based on a new town center with shops and housing.
