Yulman Stadium in New Orleans, Louisiana by Gould Evans

Thursday, September 10th, 2015

Article source: Gould Evans

Tulane University, a landlocked, open space-challenged campus in the heart of Uptown New Orleans, wanted to build a 30,000-capacity football stadium on an exceptionally tight site – in fact, at the narrowest point on the campus. The new $72 million Yulman Stadium nests itself into the heart of the Tulane’s athletics precinct. It provides a backdrop to a new athletics quadrangle while connecting to the existing Hertz and Wilson Centers. Construction began in early 2013 and was completed in early 2015. The new stadium marks the first time in 40 years that football is being played on Tulane’s campus. It has become a catalyst for renewed interest in the Tulane football program, successfully bringing back a generation of lost fans.

Residenza Le Stelle in Locarno – Solduno, Switzerland by Buzzi Architetti

Thursday, September 10th, 2015

Article source: Buzzi Architetti

Solduno is a neighbourhood on the outskirts of the historical centre of Locarno, southern Switzerland. I grew up a few steps from here, in an area of eclectic early 20th century bourgeois mansions and brick condos from the 1960s. Today most of those early-to mid 20th century buildings, have given way to more recent anonymous edifices.

School Sobrosa in Paredes, Portugal by CNLL

Wednesday, September 9th, 2015

Article source: CNLL

This school was designed as a playful combination of modules that can be easily adapted to the variations of the terrain and the topography of the place. It develops the concept established in the modular schools project (CEM – Centros Escolares Modulares) and revisits the original objective where the movement, variation and formal complexity of the exterior contrast with the lin­earity of the interior planes that structure the function­al areas.

Baltar School in Paredes, Portugal by CNLL

Tuesday, September 8th, 2015

Article source: CNLL

Located in the middle of a school and sports complex, this building differs from the other schools as it offers a wider programme, catering for primary and middle school children. This exposed concrete building with scattered windows is characterised by a simultaneous­ly sober and contemporary language. It has clear and objective lines, free from superfluous elements, where the careful relationship between solid and empty spac­es creates a pure composition and a symbiotic harmo­ny between the parts and the whole.
