LOG seeks to address the scale of the typical s’chach roof found on Sukkot. Typically the s’chach roof is an assemblage of branches, small sticks, and other plant material. LOG exaggerates the scale of these members into one piece that is able to provide shade for the inhabitants. As a means of showcasing this element, the walls become 4 pieces of 1” thick glass, with no other columns or supports, so the log foundation floats above. The two programmatic devices: a table and a candle, are elegantly hung from above. Above all the design shows a simplicity of concept, impeccable craft, and a restraint against excessive assemblages.

A MAP is a whole of symbols recalling territorial concepts. The project is this as well: a map where takes place an abstract analysis of our territory and the bond established between mountains and human beings during particular circumstances.
A PLATFORM: the strength of our bonds is our base.
A map of life.
The concepts of belonging, the interweaves and the relations that define a life. Its and fragility, the solidity and unpredictability of how everything could end.

Silence & movement
Most of all, we focused on a robust, simple and tranquil architecture intuitively as we take up the form and space. Another point we considered is a vigorous architecture which evoke water vitality in still emotion. The circular form symbolises pure crystal of living organisms. Circular plan which is 32 metres in diameter, 11 metres in height soars from the ground. Firm, still and refined curve wall opens with gradual, arbitrary and rhythmic rules. We expect another tone colour through the open and solid curved wall. Musical facade is achieved through this project it plays in andante, moderato and allegro. It conveys silence and movement simultaneously.

Though itself of Baroque date, Bastion XXXI is a part of the medieval fortifications of the New Town of Prague, founded in 1348 by Emperor Charles IV. The need for unconquerable fortifications was strengthened by the presence of the Cathedral of Charlemagne at the point of the bastion. Along with the fortress of Vyšehrad, another significant monument of the city fortifications, the ramparts form a significant defensive complex, yet one hidden beneath the later layers of the contemporary built fabric of central Prague, now a UNESCO heritage site. The area of former gardens within the ramparts was left untouched since the 14th century, first as reserve land and later ignored even as the city expanded over the centuries.

During a long day of snowboard often stopping along the way to wait for their friends and follow their evolution with the board. Other times we’re just a quiet place to stop to rest and organize an evening drink. In others moments we need a technical support aspects of skiing and weather information and safety in the snow. Comes the need to create a place, a meeting point for snowboarders where to find and spend a few minutes before continuing their descent. SJE is based conceptually on the creation of this site. A project not on the edge of the track, but fully integrated with the path.

The proposal represents and symbolizes the new centrality that Blas Infante Square offers in a contemporary way. The project is developed from the duality of the two scales that are mixed: the scale of the neighborhood, immediate environment, and a larger size, the city and its historic center.

New York City AIDS Memorial Park Competition
The combined site is experienced through the 2 ramped passageways, that begin and end at the same place but remain separate. “Health “– embodied by the verdant park, benches, and vegetation– surrounds “Infection”–symbolized by an isolated ramp. The two realities are visible to each other but separated by a glass enclosure.

This project to a fish market, which is considerate like a pioneering experience in Galicia, gives the possibility of receiving visitors at the same time that the market activity is made.
The objective of separate the workers and visitors routes becomes a condition to the distribution and the basic program of a conventional market, appearing added functions, like the information area, didactic material exhibition hall, a control room and a small store.

This art work was dedicated to the people who had passed away in several disasters in this year 2011. Especially in Japan, the massive earthquake hit this country land with the huge tsunami so much that considerable damage and profound sorrow came to us. MoNo had the opportunity to join the illumination event “KusatsuMachiakariYumeakariHanaakari – on autumnal Kusatsu road with sensory gratification”, which got over 30 thousands visitors. So MoNo could open our work as one of programs of “Akari Art Exhibition” which were held in some historic shrines and temples.
