Being a summer house, the main idea is not only creating the interior spaces of the house, but distribute all outer space. The interior spaces seek good relations with the outside world, colonizing their surroundings and their

Velodrome in Culiacan, Mexico by Bunker Arquitectura

Friday, September 21st, 2012

Article source: Emelio Barjau

Professional cycling has developed enormously in the State of Sinaloa, Mexico, in the last decade.  Several international star athletes have brought attention to the sport, fueled by Olympic victories and enthusiastic press.  Consequently there is an interest in building Culiacan´s new velodrome, as well as incorporating policies that favor cycling as a mode of transportation into the city’s plans for new public spaces.  Our vision channels this newfound enthusiasm for cycling into a single thread that unites a professional sports building with a cycling-oriented park development.

Dojo in Santiago, Chile by Umwelt + Lucía Cavecedo García

Article source: Arturo Scheidegger

Three interventions in a 5000 m2 plot in a suburb of Santiago: A meditation hall (or Dojo) at the bottom of the site, a small pavilion in front of the family pool, and the refurbishment of a terrace that was virtually unusable because of high temperature and reflected light. In each case, outdoor spaces were enhanced to face the high temperatures in spring and summer.

National Museum Of Afghanistan in Kabul, by Klingmann Architects & Brand Consultants

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

Article source: Anna Klingmann


Exterior View of Museum


Klingmann Architects and Brand Consultants’ competition entry for the new National Museum of Afghanistan envisions the institution as a compact jewel box concealing the treasure that history has entrusted to it piece by piece. For this reason, the box, though dense and hermetic on the outside, must be suggestive and magical on the inside. Seemingly simple and plain on the exterior, the box reveals the deep, rich and complex heritage of the people of Afghanistan on the interior. While the treasures are carefully embedded and protected deep within the box, they are not readily available to the onlooker. They remain a hidden mystery, longing to be discovered. We want to capture this sense of mystery and longing and The space within invites the visitor on a journey of unearthing and discovery. The space within is neither a mere organizing element, nor a beautiful but distant architecture. The exhibition’s experience has the ability to evoke places and people from a tiny yet resilient fragment of ceramic which has managed to survive, and which speaks of the fragility of time.

Firehouse in Palma de Mallorca, Spain by Jordi Herrero Campo Arquitecto

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

Article source: Jordi Herrero Campo Arquitecto


In judo, virtuosity is achieved by profiting from the power of the contrary in our benefit. The plot is located beside a highway. In this position is usual to generate some type of protective parameter which separates us from it. Here, instead of rejecting this particular situation, we collect it in our profit, as in judo.

Taliesin Mod.Fab by Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

Article source: Victor Sidy

The Taliesin Mod.Fab is an example of simple, elegant, and sustainable living. The one-bedroom, 600-square-foot prototype residence relies on panelized construction to allow for speed and economy on site or in a factory. It can be connected to utilities or be \”unplugged,\” relying on low-consumption fixtures, rainwater harvesting, greywater re-use, natural ventilation, solar orientation, and photovoltaics to reduce energy and water use. The structure is dimensioned and engineered to be transportable via roadway.

Skate Park House in Shibuya, Tokyo by Level Architects

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

Article source: Level Architects

The owners of this house, a young married couple, made a special request in regards to the design of their house, located in a quiet residential neighborhood in Shibuya ward. They wanted both a skateboard park and a piano rehearsal room to reflect their own individual interests.
There was no need for a car park on the site, so to take advantage of space a private entrance courtyard was designed. The sliding glass panels of the first floor open up onto this enclosed area and allows for the workshop and studio to expand outwards. The studio has a skateboard bowl imbedded into the floor with multiple angles for plenty of different interaction.
