An Occupation of Loss in New York by OMA

Sunday, October 2nd, 2016

Article source: OMA 

Artist Taryn Simon in collaboration with OMA/Shohei Shigematsu has created a major new work for Park Avenue Armory’s Wade Thompson Drill Hall, co-commissioned by the Armory and Artangel, London. A conceptual artist working primarily with image and text, Simon breaks form with her first-ever directed performance in a monumental sculptural setting, in which she considers the anatomy of grief and the intricate systems that we devise to contend with the irrationality of the universe. On view September 13 – 25, 2016 at the Armory, An Occupation of Loss will be presented by Artangel in London next year.

The Cheongna City Tower in Incheon, Korea by YBGSNA

Thursday, September 22nd, 2016

Article source: YBGSNA

The first issue was achieved by introducing a structural spiral organic element. The vertical solid elevator core of the building is wrapped by a steel spring like spiral element. The spiral element functions as a structural element and as a vertical circulation option. The flexible nature of the spiral enabled us to expand and shrink the thickness of the tower in relationship to structural and functional needs along its vertical section. The constant slope of the spiral enabled the creation of a subtle and almost “natural” organic grace to its monumental presence.

Central Park Residence in Cluj-Napoca, Romania by Dico si Tiganas architecture and engineering

Friday, September 16th, 2016

Article source: Dico si Tiganas architecture and engineering

When the client demanded three rectangular residential towers on a site with irregular contour, surrounded by a winding stream that derives from the Somes river and by clusters of poplar trees that surround the nearby sports park, we took the responsibility to come up with a different approach: a building that integrates the three separate units in one unitary volume with a layout that undulates on the site so that it makes the most of the natural light and views. It also provides a sheltered space and a private, quiet area, in the resulting concave space. This space is an artificial landscape, a green leisure and relaxation area that is shaped as a green roof for the underground parking.

Gran Mediterraneo in Tel Aviv, Israel by Architectures David Tajchman

Friday, September 2nd, 2016

Article source: Architectures David Tajchman 

The Gran Mediterraneo is an innovative concept of High-Rise that integrates a public automated car-park, operates as the first induction charging station for public and shared electric driverless vehicles in the city (future ‘sherut’), and mixes programs of vertical living: residential apartments and hotel, bars and restaurants, farming and public gardens, swimming pools and dead sea spas, co-working spaces for offices and start-ups, educational and events spaces. Innovative also with its topological geometry giving a spiral effect to the high-rise, the Gran Mediterraneo breaks with the global and usual stacking of horizontal slabs wrapped with mirrored glass, aiming to renew Tel Aviv skyline with a ‘Unesco proclaimed white city’ specific vertical architecture. To be built with white concrete, using the latest construction and digital technologies, the curvy high-rise is filled with mediterranean and dead sea natures.

Grove at Grand Bay in Miami, Florida by BIG – Bjarke Ingels Group

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016

Article source: BIG – Bjarke Ingels Group

Miami has developed a contemporary vernacular of condominiums that includes brise-soleil-style balconies with floor-to-ceiling windows that offer panoramic water views. We have taken these indigenous elements of the new Miami skyline and continue the evolution of their local architectural language. Coconut Grove’s identity is closely tied to its untamed jungle-like vegetation, yet the center sadly lacks this quality. Our design “re-groves” the heart of Coconut Grove, and create a landscape in tune with the surroundings. The two towers of the Grove at Grand Bay respond to the surroundings and to each other, to give optimum views at every level. The towers take off from the ground to capture the full breadth of panoramic views from sailboat bays and the marina to the Miami skyline. The dancing motion of the towers creates a new landmark in the community. A lush abundance of plant-life blankets over the parking and amenity spaces, folding down to create pedestrian and vehicular access to the towers.
