Flor del Campo in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia by Giancarlo Mazzanti + Felipe Mesa

Friday, March 30th, 2012

Article source: Giancarlo Mazzanti + Felipe Mesa

This project is characterized by four “Rings”, each of which is defined by two levels with different thicknesses, rounding different playgrounds. The perimeter is as important as the interior space formed by the rings, projecting physical areas that can express the function that will be developed. It was inspired by the shapes of tropical plants and trees in the area, taking us to a recreational atmosphere of games, educational exchanges, etc.

LaVance Shade Screen in Scottsdale, Arizona by Benjamin Hall (designed with Rhino)

Thursday, March 29th, 2012

Article source: Benjamin Hall 

This projection came to life when Mr. Lavance and Benjamin Hall drank a few brew’s at a local pub. Lavance expressed his desire to shad his outdoor BBQ / kitchen. A few napkin sketches later and a real enthusiasm for raw materials that weather and age over time due to the brutal desert sun bearing upon. The high arcing paroblolic steel arcs crest to allow seating behind the counter on the east, while converging to the west to screen the Arizona summer sun.

Reabilitação da Igreja do Convento de São Francisco in Portalegre, Portugal by Cândido Chuva Gomes, arquitectos, Ldª

CHURCH OF THE SÃO FRANCISCO CONVENT – REHABILITATION

Only a few signs remain of the original Franciscan convent established in the 13th century, which reveal its original configuration, considered the oldest religious building in Portalegre. Throughout the centuries, several building works have reconfigured the space of the church, both in shape and size. After the dissolution of the religious orders in 1834, the original body of the Convent was subject to successive adaptations and additions, resulting from the repurposing of the building, particularly related to the industrial processing of cork. The church, after 1910, lost its ecclesiastical function and was used in several different ways from that period onwards, suffering some reconstruction and recuperation during the 70’s and 80’s, which were not carried out in a manner that added value to or repurposed the building.

Lake Houses in Zurich, Switzerland by E2A (designed using AutoCAD)

Thursday, March 29th, 2012

Article source: E2A Eckert Eckert Architekten

An existing late classical home (Villa Sonnenhof), marks the slight bend of the Seestrasse as it follows the shores of the lake. Along the villa, the former park stretched to the street above and opened dramatic vistas to the lake. Future densification on this site needed to offer views of the lake equally to all parties, but to avoid seeing their neighbors.

An Organic, Bioclimatic House in Brittany, France by Patrice Bideau (designed using Vectorworks)

Thursday, March 29th, 2012

Article source: Patrice Bideau

This house on the shores of the Golfe du Morbihan, not far from AURAY, was built using organic architectural principals with a concentration of green energy components for maximum efficiency without resorting to technical sophistication. Completed at the beginning of this year, the house is situated in a region benefitting from oceanic climate conditions. The project was born of the owners’ desire to build a new house on their property in BADEN, incorporating a landscaped garden and a natural, chemical free swimming pool. These were created before construction began on the house in collaboration with a designer and a landscape gardener. The garden was designed to provide protection from Westerly winds with a vegetable garden to the East. A distinctive ambiance emerged from this new, natural environment surrounding the construction site.

Cor-Ten steel boxes serve as retaining structures and planters, extending along the site’s perimeter and penetrating the surrounding wood fence.

Museo del Acero Horno3 in Monterrey, Mexico by Surfacedesign Inc. + Harari arquitectos

Thursday, March 29th, 2012

Article source: Surfacedesign Inc.+ Harari arquitectos

Project Statement

A team of international designers collaborated to transform a decommissioned blast furnace and a brownfield site into a modern history museum dedicated to the region’s rich history of steel production. Borrowing from materials endemic to the site, innovative landscape design weaves together with modern architecture to usher an old relic into the 21st century. Environmentally sensitive technologies — such as green roofs and a storm water collection system — offer a new approach to the landscape while respecting the original context.
