E. Pearce Revisited in New York by workshopapd

Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

Article source: workshopapd

Paying homage to the Baroque staircase attributed to 17th century English master Edmund Pearce (on exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art), workshop/apd fashioned a contemporary update for a modern Tribeca loft. Where Pearce incorporated oak leaves and pine cones, we digitized interlaced tree branches to create an element of modern-day beauty and craft in water-jet cut steel, bringing fancifulness and ornamentation back to architecture. Like its predecessor, the dramatic scroll – now in perforated steel – weaves the two floors together in a unique way.

Hotel Ayre Rosselló in Barcelona, Spain by Johannes K. Wortmann

Sunday, March 18th, 2012

Article source: Johannes K. Wortmann

To be confronted with a building site in the shadow of the “Sagrada Familia“ a key work of  the Catalan master Antoni Gaudí, is an unique opportunity in the life of an architect.

We were perfectly aware that the particular modernist style – to be read as a Catalan version of Art Nouveau – influenced by surrealism, the colorful ornaments reflecting organic elements taken out of nature, as well as the daring structure of the cathedral, represents for the city of Barcelona the same overwhelming attraction as the Frank Gehry`s Guggenheim Museum for Bilbao.

Dress House in Klagenfurt, Austria by Heri & Salli (designed using Rhino)

Sunday, March 18th, 2012

Article source: Heri & Salli

The architecture studio heri & salli from Vienna conceived for one part of an already existing house in Austria/Klagenfurt a façade design made of perforated sheets of aluminum. Already existing views were picked up and subjected to a dynamic appearance. The object was to create a homogenous appearance, to reinforce and underline the presence of the existing cube and at the same time conserve functions like the view to the outside through the facade.

Windswept in San Francisco, California by Charles Sowers Studios

Friday, March 16th, 2012

Article source: Charles Sowers Studios

Windswept consists of 612 freely rotating wind direction indicators mounted parallel to the wall creating an architectural scale instrument for observing the complex interaction between wind and the building. The wind arrows serve as discrete data points indicating the direction of local flow within the larger phenomenon. Wind gusts, rippling and swirling through the sculpture, visually reveal the complex and ever-changing ways the wind interacts with the building and the environment.
