House 101 in Barcelona, Spain by H Arquitectes

Tuesday, May 8th, 2012

Article source: H Arquitectes

Even though the regulations allowed to build ground floor and two floors, the first great decision was to compact the program in two only floors. Thus, the zone shares the ground floor by day with the parking lot that incorporates into the functional program of the house. The second decision was to place the main courtyard in the corner in such a way that the relationship between the living room and the kitchen is produced throw it.. The program of rooms concentrates in the upper floor where one turns up another courtyard that, together with the skylights, allows distributing the pieces without the need for opening up directly in street. The house becomes opaque in the limits, but it expands in its inside.

Sunday, May 6th, 2012

Article source: Titus Bernhard Architekten

The idea behind House 11 x 11 was to design an apparently compact house of homogenous materials, with a low external surface but as large a usable area as possible, a house that serves a family as an inhabitable sculpture and shows its exterior as an image of the inner organization.

Re-Imagining Seward Park Redevelopment (SPURA) on the Lower East Side, New York

Recent news coverage for the 7-acre parcel, Manhattan’s biggest undeveloped,  publicly owned development site south of 96th Street, has provided the chance to contemplate many important urban issues.

Firstly, are we taking full advantage of this great opportunity to develop a vast land in the heart of Manhattan, or just limiting our imagination under current NYC zoning resolution (which is 50 years old)? Secondly, is the hot debate over big box retailers heading to the right direction?
