Tuesday, March 1st, 2011

This project is located near by the entrance of the Seoul National University’s main gate , OMA’s SNU Museum and MT.Gwanak in Seoul. This design aims to be ‘the hidden depth (gradation wall)’ which is to show the value of a natural landscape throughout architectural wall-frame. The hidden depth means architecture as the background and perceptual tool.

Sunday, February 27th, 2011

Ten Museum Park, Miami, Florida by OPPENHEIM Architecture+Design is an exploration of the hedonistic possibilities of architecture in a futuristic tropical playground of urban sophistication. A crisp, well proportioned exoskeleton engages a pure crystalline volume soaring 50 stories above the bay—a dynamic beacon for the cruise ships as they return from their voyages around the globe.

Ecological Reconfiguration of Philadelphia by ecosistema urbano

Sunday, February 27th, 2011

ecosistema urbano believes that the revitalization of urban life is not obtained merely by architecture alone, but by focusing on solutions which encompass all aspects of the city system.  Regenerating the networks of social, environmental, and physical elements plants the seed for flourishing, liveable urban communities.  The ecological reconfiguration of Philadelphia uses the city’s strong history of citizen participation to develop a sustainable and economically-viable landscape.

Ilona Condominium Complex, Miami Beach, Florida by OPPENHEIM Architecture+Design

Sunday, February 27th, 2011

The form, siting, and distribution of spaces for the Ilona urban dwelling complex in Miami Beach, Florida designed by OPPENHEIM Architecture+Design are derived from a logical analysis of its physical and intangible context. A complex array of interlocking, volumes maximizes light, air, and stringent FAR restrictions. Centrally located on the nondescript site, the building offers views of the passing cruise ships and the surrounding Art Deco Style. The material palette is simple and sincere: white stucco, an aluminum glazing system, perforated aluminum panels, and shell stone details connect the building to the local fabric’s traditions and techniques. Individual 2-story units are expressed as dynamically jutting volumes from the elongated hexagonal plan.

Montclair Condominium Complex, Miami, Florida, by OPPENHEIM Architecture+Design

Sunday, February 27th, 2011

Existing at the intersection of civic, commercial, and residential activity, the 65,000 square foot Montclair condominium complex project by OPPENHEIM Architecture+Design located in Miami Beach was the result of a process of contextual sampling subject to the restrictions of an exaggerated historic preservation agenda and municipal zoning constraints. Confronted with 2 lots that straddle a nondescript, but sacred Post-war apartment building, the massing of the complex is derived from the collusion of abstract reference and the mundane. Financial objectives– the maximization of saleable area and idealized unit/parking correlations are kept in check with sensitivity towards the maintenance of the surrounding urban fabric.

Evolver is an inhabitable sculpture erected for the Zermatt Festival, the renowned annual event for Chamber Music featuring the Berlin Philharmonics and many others. As an architectural artifact Evolver intervenes spatially on the panorama surrounding Zermatt and was designed and executed by a team of 2nd year architecture students from the ALICE studio at EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland.In an effort to take full advantage of the site’s extensive and astounding views, the project sits strategically next to the lake Stelli at an altitude of 2536m.

Kralingse Berg in Rotterdam, Netherlands by MVRDV Architect

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

Rotterdam is Europe’s main port, the port area stretches along the Rhine from the city centre towards the sea, its industries and cranes are the icons of the port city. The north east of Rotterdam is a sharp contrast to the general image of the city dominated by industrial activity and modern architecture: a green suburban area of great natural beauty. The historic neighbourhood of Kralingen, parklands, the river Rotte and a series of lakes with riparian leisure facilities such as yacht harbours mark this affluent part of the city. The area would be a real oasis in the dense urban fabric but it is brutally split by a motorway and train rail. The main artery of the Benelux, a motorway which connects the 3 main ports and generates constant traffic and pollution, cuts through this green area. The main eastern train lines run next to the motorway. Crouched against the infrastructure a series of industries are located, in a strange paradox surrounded by the nicest parks of the city.

Monday, February 21st, 2011

This project is a morphological study that emphasizes circulating forces and an extended field of movement. It is designed by dynamically simulating self-organizing biological systems. Simultaneously, selective decision making is used to sculpt innate yet deliberate spatial relationships and formal qualities.

Miami Dade College Campus Center, Miami, Florida, by OPPENHEIM Architecture+Design designed using ArchiCAD

Monday, February 21st, 2011

The dramatic design set forth for Miami’s LEED certified Miami Dade College Campus Center by Oppenheim Architecture+Design is visually daring and bold; yet upon further introspection, inherently elemental and concise in its organization of the complex programmatic mix. The proposed LEED® certified structure is conceived of as a portal comprised of a base and a top supported by two towers that allow large exterior public spaces at ground and in sky. The project is to serve as a catalyst-exasperating significant enhancement to the campus experience and image through a local revitalization of the surrounding neighborhood.
