Article source: Rosan Bosch & Rune Fjord

LEGO’s designers are the luckiest in the world – they get to play with LEGO all day long! Now, the designers of LEGO’s development department, LEGO PMD, has a physical working environment that corresponds to its playful content – a working environment where fun, play and creativity are paramount and where the physical design gives the adults a chance to be part of children’s play. With the values ’fun’, ’unity’, ’creativity & innovation’, ’imagination’ and ’sustainability’ as basis for the design, LEGO PMD has become a unique development department where the designers can become part of the children’s fantasy world. LEGO doesn’t just create fun for others – at LEGO PMD working is fun!

La Grajera in Logroño, Spain by Virai Arquitectos

Sunday, February 5th, 2012

Article source: Virai Arquitectos

In the estate of La Grajera, west of the city of Logroño and only a few yards from the Camino de Santiago, we find the Institutional Winery of La Grajera.

The Project seeks an equilibrium between the need to announce the presence of the winery and the desire to merge with the landscape: the volumes follow the deformations of the land and are interrupted, moving towards the forest, remaining close to its border and thus respecting the existing vegetation.

The combined site is experienced through the 2 ramped passageways,  that begin and end at the same place but remain separate. “Health “–  embodied by the verdant park, benches, and vegetation– surrounds  “Infection”–symbolized by an isolated ramp. The two realities are visible  to each other but separated by a glass enclosure.

Article source: Shim-Sutcliffe Architects

The Integral House creates a place for architecture, music, and performance located at the threshold between Toronto’s urban fabric and its extensive natural ravine system. In the project’s program brief, our client clearly articulated his dual passion for mathematics and music and his interest in curvilinear shapes resulting in spatially complex volumes.

  • Software used: The design was developed though hand drafting and physical model building techniques.  The working drawings for construction were further developed using AutoCAD, along with some additional hand drafting.    Some of the custom hardware pieces – such as the  door handles and glass clips for the blue glass stair were developed using Rhinoceros NURBS modeling. The design process was iterative – typically it would start with a hand sketch, or a physical model, which would then be further developed using AutoCAD, and / or Rhino, depending on the item.


Calistoga Residence in California by Strening Architects (designed using SketchUp and Revit)

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012

Article source: Daniel J. Strening

This project was a residence for a couple from the Washington D.C. area. The original house was a poorly conceived series of stucco boxes with no relationship to the outdoor spaces, or the distant vistas. These qualities were some of the more spectacular aspects of the 25 acre site.
