Artist Studio/Residence in Woodstock, New York by Gans studio

Friday, July 3rd, 2015

Article source: Gans studio

The studio residence is a free-standing building that completes an ensemble of experience and use in relation to a pre-existing house and a landscape. The new building contains a small drawing studio, workroom and kiln tucked beneath a library and a bedroom suite that overlook a double height sculpture space. It connects to the pre-existing house via two bridges: an upper bridge that extends from the living room to a new roof garden floating before the Catskills; and a lower bridge that ties the studio back into the hillside.

CRÈCHE DES ORTEAUX in Paris, France by Avenier Cornejo Architectes

Thursday, July 2nd, 2015

Article source: Avenier Cornejo Architectes

The architectural firm, Avenier Cornejo, has just completed a crèche for 66 children in the 20th arrondissement of Paris. The crèche is located in the new Fréquel Fontarabie district, where the public pathway meets the square. It is a unique building which adds to the identity of the neighbourhood. Being one of the first places that children discover outside their own family unit, a crèche needs to provide a reassuring atmosphere where children can grow and prosper. The crèche is there both to protect children and help them discover the world around them.

Pedestrian & cyclist bridge Expo 2015 in Milan, Italy by Studio PP8

Thursday, July 2nd, 2015

Article source: Studio PP8

The footbridge by studio PP8 was created as part of the city of Milan’s ongoing urban plan. The steel structure crosses the A8 motorway at Arese, giving a safe passage to pedestrians and cyclists to the Milan expo area. The footbridge is composed of cross steel tubes, with corrugated steel slabs on two levels, one for foot traffic and the other for bikers. To avoid uncomfortable acceleration produced by running people it was inserted a TMD (Tuned Mass Daper) just under the corrugated steel slab, in the middle of the main span.

Ekklesia in Valencia, Spain by Pink Intruder

Thursday, July 2nd, 2015

Article source: Pink Intruder

It is an installation made with cardboard tubes with a metallic appearance atop a mosaic made of 96,000 wooden pieces.

During the Fallas festival in Valencia held every year the ultimate goal of these installations is to be burned to celebrate the arrival of spring.  In this context we built a structure entirely of cardboard and wood joints. The purpose was to investigate to what extent we could carry up this type of structure, and also to place in a traditional context a contemporary image to provoke the debate between tradition and modernity.

ORIGAMI ark in Himeji, Japan by Matsuya Art Works

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015

Article source: Matsuya Art Works

This showroom is built to sustain the tanners in the leather manufacturing business, which is local traditional industry in Himeji City, a suburban city in Japan. The showroom highlights the enormous range of leather materials that makes the clients strength and meets his wish to communicate and show the diversity of his products. This specificity leads us to focus on the interior design that allows us to better display the project rather than the exterior shape of the building. The request was to display over 3000 leather items in a very narrow exhibition space limited to 300 m². In order to respond to this range, a second and third floor must be built, however separating the display into several floors might not leave the wanted impression of the huge diversity of leather products offered by the house. Therefore, the Idea was to build an enormous three-dimensional fixture in a single exhibition room. A huge frame was built in shape of a jungle gym using 100x100mm² square steel pipes, creating a three dimensional display fixture. The Grand dimensions of this fixture creates in the visitors mind an impressive understanding of the overwhelming range of products with a single glance. Moreover, leaving more space to move freely provides an experience similar to exploring a jungle gym inside making the discovery of the leather materials’ variety more exciting.

Pfarré lighting design studio in Munich, Germany

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015

Article source: Pfarré lighting design studio

Project

The former store for antique luminaires im Munich‘s Alt-Schwabing district provided an ideal L-shaped ground plan for the workplaces and other areas of the new studio. All main technical features, such as print/copy, large-format printer, coffee, server, etc. are hidden behind a new space divider, which also houses the product library, and consumable supplies. With this divider, a generous space between divider and the shop windows has been created for meetings and presentations. Thanks to the digitalization of the working process and archives, the size of the studio remained the same as before. However, 5 desks have been reduced in size. A 8 m long shelve unit provides space to work and store, below a pinboard with the same length. At the former studio site out of town PLD is still equipped with a lavish archive and further space for testing, mock-ups, and models.
