The Towers at Young Harris College in Georgia by Lord Aeck Sargent

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014

Article source: Lord Aeck Sargent

At Young Harris College, when talking about the institution’s newest residence hall, you could recite the adage, “What’s old is new again,” and on the face of it, you’d be right.

YHC, which less than six years ago began its transition from a two-year to a four-year institution, hired architecture and planning firm Lord Aeck Sargent (LAS) to design the Towers– a 226-bed residence hall that opened in August 2013.

With double occupancy rooms arranged around communal bathrooms and a shared common area, the Towers sounds a lot like a mid-20th century dormitory building. But, there’s a twist.

Grove Towers in Mumbai, India by 3XN

Friday, May 9th, 2014

Article source: 3XN

A Cluster of trees which seemingly braid together

3XN’s design team was invited for the event which unveiled the 77.000 m2 project inspired by the Indian nature and Mumbai’s mangroves. Just as clusters of mangrove stalks seemingly braid together at the base, the two towers in this mixed use development converge at the lower retail floors, rising up to provide amenity spaces on the podium; and grow into the sky as a cluster of slender trees providing some of Mumbai’s most thoughtfully laid out residential accommodation. Each unit features views in at least two directions, many of which look out towards the mangroves to the North, and Indian Ocean to the West.

Platonian Tower in Lima, Peru by Tammo Prinz Architects

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014

Article source: Tammo Prinz Architects

URBAN 

The sloped max. envelope was given by Peruan building codes. The program was massive.

Therefore a sunken outside plaza was introduced, connected to an open and public reception space, serving together as possible event space. This way the living function could reach down close to the ground floor, still providing enough privacy through the gap generated by the sunken plaza.
