Bax Box in Seekirchen, Austria by Strobl Architekten ZT GmbH

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012

Article source: Strobl Architekten ZT GmbH

The German term Backskiste (BAXBOX) is used for the locker on board of a ship in which everything that is lying around unnecessarily can be stored quickly and easily. This Baxbox contains everything a boathouse owner will never miss but had always urgently needed. The new box was erected on the existing foundation of a small old house, whose bottom slab can be newly leveled with a simple jack to adjust to any changes. The floors and ceilings are made of solid glued laminated timber and half-timbered walls. It is covered with a protective layer of Silano foil and thick reeds. This allows the prefabricated box to match its environment in terms of functions and materials.

Cloudhaus in New York City by Art Meadow

Wednesday, September 19th, 2012

Article source: Matthew Hoffman

CLOUDHAUS takes the rich history and deep meaning associated with Sukkahs and reimagines their role in today’s history.

The divine shelter of the Clouds of Glory elevated the Jews to a level of pure holiness, or Kedusha, and the Sukkah does the same. During Sukkot we are not merely reminded of the Clouds of Glory and our potential to attain Kedusha, we are temporarily elevated to that very same level.

UNIRE/UNITE at MAXXI in Roma, ltalia by Robyne Kassen

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

Article source: Robyne Kassen

Project to inspire the concept of UNITY on all levels. The personal level connecting mind and body, invites users to experience new perceptions and connections of mind and body through yogic and supportive forms to recalibrate the senses. The collective level, binding all individuals as a unified global family with the understanding of mutual care by accessible and inclusive design, and the Infinity System, a 40 meter long curved seating structure joining together all users on a single surface. Read from the gallery above, the words UN IRE/UNITE read as a reminder to the expansion that occurs when we rise to the collective consciousness, simultaneously uniting interior and exterior.

Aurora Borealis Observatory by Marcio Rodrigues

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

Article source: Marcio Rodrigues

Universe, nature, man_these are the fundamental ideas behind our project. The conceptual approach was the analysis of the ancient monuments where, for the first time, Man started to connect with the skies. At the same time, we know that Man started to understand the sky, when he groups the several stars. Those constellations inspired us and one of the most visible and know throughout the world is Orion. This created a basis to understand a constellation in an architecture point of view and helped us to organize the program, the space and the circulations.

Screenplay in Los Angeles by Oyler Wu Collaborative

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012

Article source: Wu Collaborative

Screenplayby Oyler Wu Collaborative will be on view from 6/22 to 6/24 at Dwell on Design 2012 at LA Convention Center.

Screenplay is conceived of as a ‘play’ on one’s visual perception.  This twenty-one foot long screen wall is constructed of forty-five thousand linear feet of rope strung through a series of lightweight steel frames.  The wall is designed with the intention of provoking a sense of curiosity by slowly revealing its form and complexity through physical and visual engagement with the work.  The wall is made from a repetitious steel framework with rope infill that varies over the length of the wall in three dimensions, forming a thickened undulating screen made up of dense line-work.

Candentia in Poland by Karolina Wierzbinska

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012

Article source: Karolina Wierzbinska

The master’s postulates a design of a new jetty with a café in Kołobrzeg and rearranging the adjoining area. The project is the solution for a current problem i.e. insufficient presentation of a landscape quality. Thoroughly analysed and evaluated, the plan guarantees functionality of the jetty and its surroundings. The urban concept gives an example of rearranging the district containing the jetty, creating representative public spaces, improving the main scenic pedestrian zone confined by the new service buildings and solving current communication problems.

Manta Reactive Acoustic Surface by ARCHGEOMETER

Thursday, July 19th, 2012

Article source: ARCHGEOMETER

Manta is a surface that changes  form – and therefore acoustic character – in response to multimodal input through Open Sound Control [OSC], including stereoscopic vision, multi-touch, sound, and brainwaves. While adaptable acoustic treatments are common, Manta explores variability and responsiveness in the surface itself, advancing acoustic systems beyond individual elements and corrective treatment.
