Taichung City Cultural Center Competition Entry in Taiwan by Hyunjoon Yoo Architects

Thursday, July 11th, 2013

Article source: Hyunjoon Yoo Architects

Main Concept
Rationality and Sensibility, the both terms are the base that establishes human culture or intelligence.
Human’s rationality is revealed through philosophy, mathematics and science whereas the sensibility is freely expressed in our lives in the form of art, music, literature, etc.
The both terms can be interpreted into architectural language, where the rationality is defined as a Library and the sensibility is depicted as a Fine Arts Museum.

Pink Flamingo in Paris, France by Stephane Maupin

Wednesday, July 10th, 2013

Article source: Stephane Maupin 

The new building takes place on the east Side of Paris, a new area build over rail tracks. All the difficulty was to make a construction without any foundation. The project is installed above big concrete slabs overcoming trains in motion. So vertical columns are like pink flamingo’s legs. They are installed on 27 small spring boxes connecting the ground floor. Those boxes prevent all trains vibrations to students’ cells.

Bishops resting pavilion in Veszprém, Hungary by Veszprémi Építész Műhely

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013

Article source: Veszprémi Építész Műhely 

The Bishops resting pavilion is situated in the most beautiful area of Veszprém. The neoclassical two-storey pavilion was built by Bishop Joseph Kopácsy in 1820. The new owner would like to operated the building as a cafe. Our task was to renovate and expand the old pavilion, which was in degraded condition. It was important to link the semi-basement and ground floor space.

Strickland-Ferris Residence in Raleigh, North Carolina by Frank Harmon Architect PA

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013

Article source: Frank Harmon Architect PA

The house was designed primarily for one person who had three specific requirements: (1) she wanted “something dramatic;” (2) She wanted to feel “as if I’m living in the trees;” and (3) she wanted the house to be utterly devoid of unnecessary ornamentation to the point that she could see the marks of construction, from exposed bolts to the “unfinished” ceiling structure.
