In the area Hatert, on the edge of the city of Nijmegen, the housing corporations Portaal and Talis organize a great renewal operation. Most of the current housing does not comply with contemporary standards or needs a substantial make over.
For this operation the city of Nijmegen worked in cooperation with the office of Khandekar towards a masterplan in which most of the present houses are renovated or renewed. Besides this upgrading, the open areas in the neighbourhood will be filled with several new housing projects.

Accra Twin Towers in Ghana by Frederico Valsassina Arquitectos

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

Article source: Frederico Valsassina Arquitectos

The present proposal occupies a central position in relation to urban design of the city of Accra. It has place in a regular small sized plot, located on Liberia Road, near to the British Council.

The scale of the urban mesh on which it is inserted, stands from the density of the suburban construction that surrounds this central area of the city, underlining a privileged treatment of the spaces. In this sense, as a major action, with an ambitious program, it was understood that the planned object should take advantage of all these constraints in order to be able to assume an emblematic role in the urban and architectonic context of the city.

Fukoku Tower in Osaka, Japan by Dominique Perrault Architecture

Sunday, November 27th, 2011

Article source: DPA

This tower project for the Fukoku insurance company takes inspiration from the profile of a gigantic tree whose roots proliferate on the surface of the ground. Splayed at its base, the tower’s outline tapers elegantly as it rises, gracing the city’s skyline with a vertical asymptote. The contrast between the structure’s base and upper regions is accentuated by the treatment of the building’s “bark”. Broad “wood chips” on the lower levels gradually give way to a sleek wall.
