Solar Carve Tower in New York, USA by Studio Gang Architects

Saturday, December 8th, 2012

Article source: Studio Gang Architects

Our Solar Carve Tower employs a surprising twist to traditional zoning logic. Designed for a site that borders the High Line on the east with the vast openness of Tenth Avenue, the Lincoln Highway, and the Hudson River to the west, the project proposes inverting the light and air setbacks from the already well-exposed street to the High Line, in order to prioritize the inner-block park.

Ca’Diego in Tenerife, Spain by Equipo Olivares Arquitectos

Saturday, December 8th, 2012

Article source: Equipo Olivares Arquitectos

The situation of the plot, with frontage across Las Mercedes Road and back towards the rustic landscape, the temperature conditions and humidity of the area, all together, clearly defined our approach to the project. Furthermore, the promoters asked for a modest house but with personality, on a modest budget. Thus, a compact volume is raised, trying to minimize its perimeter and therefore heat loss from inside.

Daegu-Gosan Park Library in Daegu, South Korea by Dellekamp Arquitectos

Friday, December 7th, 2012

Article source: Dellekamp Arquitectos

Daegu-Gosan Park Library proposes a progressively ascending spiral that both creates a collaborative learning environment and dynamically merges with the life unfolding in the surrounding city park. The book-stacks wrapping the outer wall of the four-story spiral ramp facilitate browsing its walk of shared continuous knowledge.

Article source: ON design partners

650㎡ grass land with moving site of Mt.Fuji and Enoshima.

We thought of using up the grass land for a place to stay by studding 22 huts. Architecture which people can get in and those which people cannot get in are treated the same.

A plan is called a map and by using this place the map is updated overtime.

Breeze in Setagaya, Tokyo by ARTechnic architects

Friday, December 7th, 2012

Article source: ARTechnic architects

A building that sits in mute repose, like an impassive signpost.

In seeking to realize such a building, which becomes part of the scenery around it, acting as part of the backdrop for passers-by, I felt that I needed to create an exterior that was distinct from the standard architectural lexicon.

Cybernetic Assemblages in Chicago, Illinois by Nikita Troufanov

Friday, December 7th, 2012

Article source: Nikita Troufanov

CYBORGS

The proposed Dance Center explores the idea of superimposition and cybernetic assemblages. By combining and overlaying organic, natural, smooth systems with machine-like, synthetic, rigid ones, a deeper experience of architectural space is achieved. Cyborg as an idea and image has informed much of the process where new nature, transformation and time are central themes. Through exploitation of cyborg vocabulary such as plug-ins, prosthetics, new skins and add-ons an architectural Cyborg is developed.

Sustainable Market Square – Casablanca in Netherlands by TomDavid Architecten

Saturday, December 1st, 2012

Article source: TomDavid Architecten

The site is situated right next to the Medina and in consequence interwoven with the indispensable social and economic structures of the Old City.

Both legal and illegal markets dominate the streetscape and are vital to the local economy. The downside of this density of commercial street business is the pollution and the decay of the public space. The design will have to serve as an example on how to improve the practical aspects of the market but leaving the existing social economic structures intact.
