Friday, March 23rd, 2012

Article source: David Giraldeau / Alexandre Guilbeault

“Controlled Collapsing” is a project recently sumbitted to the 2012 EVOLO SCKYSCRAPER COMPETITION. Established in 2006, the annual Competition recognizes outstanding ideas that redefine skyscraper design through the use of new technologies, materials, programs, aesthetics, and spatial organizations, along with studies on globalization, flexibility, adaptability, and the digital revolution. This is also an investigation on the public and private space and the role of the individual and the collective in the creation of a dynamic and adaptive vertical community.

Kelly Residence in Los Angeles, California by Abramson Teiger Architects

Friday, March 23rd, 2012

Article source: Abramson Teiger Architects

Sustainable design is at the heart of this house without being overtly expressed in the external aesthetic. The house is designed with photovoltaic cells hidden on the roof, grey water reclamation, artificial lawn, and rainscreen facades to help thermal stability, as well as flash hot water heating, bamboo floors and ponds of water to promote evaporative cooling in front of large expanses of glass. The residence is articulated as  “boxes ” each finished in white plaster, and raised on steel pilotis.

Starbucks Coffee at Dazaifu Tenmangu Omotesando in Fukuoka Prefecture by Kengo Kuma & Associates (designed with Rhino, Grasshopper, and 3dS Max)

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Article source: Kengo Kuma & Associates

Location of this Starbucks is somehow characteristic, as it stands on the main approach to the Dazaifu Tenmangu, one of the most major shrines in Japan. Established in 919 A.D., the shrine has been worshiped as “the God for Examination,” and receives about 2 million visitors a year who wish their success. Along the main path to the shrine, there are traditional Japanese buildings in one or two stories. The project aimed to make a structure that harmonizes with such townscape, using a unique system of weaving thin woods diagonally.

Loft Lloydkwartier by Rotterdam, The Netherlands by 123DV Modern Villas

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Article source: 123DV Modern Villas

In a former warehouse in the harbour of Rotterdam a loft is realised. The characteristic of the dwelling is its spaciousness, which exists because of a surplus of space. To maintain this quality, the program of the dwelling is placed into the space in two separate elements. The two elements both have their own materiality and are placed in the space on their own way.

Canada Post Corporation in Ontario, Canada by Kingsland + Architects (designed with ArchiCAD)

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Article source: Kingsland + Architects

We were given the task to design a single storey building, the ubiquitous factory / warehouse building with front office. A dissection of the program provided us with a simple theme. By nature of its program, the building consists of two independent spaces. The heart and soul of the building is the letter carriers sortation facility, a function likely defined as ‘blue collar’ and not far from functioning and appearing just like that of a “factory”.

House on Fire Island in New York by Studio Twenty Seven Architecture (designed with Rhino, AutoCAD, and Photoshop)

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Article source: Studio 27 Architecture

This is a summer beach house in the resort community of the Pines on Fire Island New York. The typology of the homes in the Pines is recognizable to anyone who has visited an East Coast Shoreline resort town. It is a builderdriven typology reflecting the pragmatism of the inhabitants of these coastal communities. Almost always the “good sense” pragmatism that allows these homes to be built affordably overtakes the inherent liveliness and natural spirit of the place and creates structures that are a bit dull. This project inserts some of the “spirit of the shore” into this “Yankee thriftiness” residential typology. Common detail and material remain, but the volume of the house is expressed as a skin, rather than as a box-like container. The skin keeps the heat in. Over time, the skin of woven cedar boards will assume the same patina as neighboring houses. Large windows are introduced to reveal a luxurious light interior.

Oleanderweg in Halle-Neustadt, Germany by Stefan Forster Achitekten (designed using ArchiCAD)

Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

Article source: Stefan Forster Achitekten

This conversion of existing prefabricated building in Halle-Neustadt resulted from the city reconstruction for the International Architectural Exhibition (IBA) in 2010. Originally, 2 or 3 apartments per floor were arranged around 11 staircases.  By reducing the staircases to 6 and removing the associated corridors.  It has allowed for the extension and rearrangment of the apartments. Outdoor spaces have been formed by removing alternating sections of the 3rd and 4th floorplates, creating large outdoor terrace spaces.  On the floors below, wide, continious balconies provide quality outside spaces for the flats.

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.
