SHELL in Nagano, Japan by ARTechnic architects (designed using ArchiCAD)

Thursday, February 16th, 2012

Article source: ARTechnic architects

A large shell shaped structure finds itself in the middle of the woods.  It is hard to determine what exactly the structure is, and unlike the surrounding caves and rocks, it clearly is not a part of nature – nor is it a ruin.  A frame, a shape, made at a completely different place for a completely different purpose.  Within this shell shaped structure will one find floors constructed, wall separating spaces, and rooms furnished. The scenery conjures a SF film-like image, in which locals inhabit over an abandoned spacecraft.  With time, trees start to grow encircling the spacecraft, harmonizing it into the landscape.

More projects by Zaha Hadid

Our designs dissolved the classic typography of tower and podium to create a seamlessly fluid new structure – establishing a vision for future achievements and referencing the university’s rich tradition. Conceptually, the university’s many different programs provided a guiding principle – ‘collateral flexibility’ – governing the tower’s internal logic.

Brian Road in Johannesburg, South Africa by Nico van der Meulen Architects (designed using AutoCAD and Revit)

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

Article source: Nico van der Meulen Architects

Nico van der Meulen Architects transformed what was originally a 1970s house into a home ideal for the 21st century.  The architectural firm created an atrium and a moat around the hall and dining room, with a curtain of water falling past a cut-out in the atrium wall.  The end result is a beautiful breakfast garden to the east of the kitchen, overlooking the moat and water feature.  The family and dining room opens onto a spacious 13 m x 6 m lanai through frame less folding doors – an excellent idea as this doubles the space available for entertaining during the long South African summers.  The interior walls were removed to create a spectacular double volume living area and to form a more seamless floor plan.  The roof over the lanai is suspended from a two-storey-high beam traversing the pool.  The outcome is a contemporary home that is open-plan with north-facing layout ideal for family living and entertaining.

Casa Lama in Mallorca, Santa Ponsa

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

Located on the rocky coast of the Balearic Island of Mallorca in Santa Ponsa, not far from Palma, this family house is pushed into a steep hillside, celebrating its Mediterranean proximity. The design responds to the site’s foremost demand, which is to open itself up to the seascape. A succession of terraces modulates the terrain from the street level to the bottom of the site, defining areas in which the house ties in with spaces outdoors: a sculpture garden, a dining loggia, a sun terrace, and a pool.

Renovation And Extension Of The German School in Lisbon, Portugal by João Luís Carrilho da Graça (Designed using ArchiCAD)

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

Article source: João Luís Carrilho da Graça


When the German School of Lisbon was first built in 1961, architectural practice in Portugal was divided into Estado Novo architecture and a growing resistance to it, resulting from the 1st National Congress of Architecture in 1948, the creation of the Modern Architects Organization that same year, and the publication of the Popular Architecture Survey that took place between 1955 and 1961.

Vittra Telefonplan in Stockholm, Sweden by Rosan Bosch

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

Article source: Rosan Bosch

How do you create a school without any walls? In the 30 schools of the Swedish free school organisation Vittra there are no classes or classrooms – instead, the students are taught in groups according to level based on the school’s pedagogical principles of ’the wateringhole’, ’the show-off’, ’the cave’, ’the campfire’ and ’the laboratory’ – didactic approaches that create different types of learning and teaching situations. In Vittra, they do not believe in regular classes and the school organisation’s vision is to create an everyday for the individual students where individual development, a living cultural work and challenging learning environments are most important.
