DEVICE #9 in Oyumino, Chiba, Japan by N MAEDA ATELIER

Saturday, October 5th, 2013

Article source: N MAEDA ATELIER

DEVICE #9 is our idea of the simplest architectural format.
 The format starts with a completely empty box. The only “rules” are to implant four GARDENs serving as devices. The only other thing we have done is to place facilities and objects indispensable for living.
 To metaphorize, the empty box is a flat steel sheet, and the four GARDENs are magnets positioned below the steel sheet.

CELLULOID JAM in YOKOHAMA, KANAGAWA, JAPAN by N MAEDA ATELIER

Friday, October 4th, 2013

Article source: N MAEDA ATELIER

Imagine a site you might picture, when letting your mind wonder back in time: damp soil forms a soft ground, catching your footsteps, ancient, weather-beaten stairs, that have been used in earlier times as an earthen path, a lovely old retaining wall and carefully cherished plants.

Constantinos Kalisperas Uncut by Constantinos Kalisperas architectural studio

Friday, September 27th, 2013

Article source: Constantinos Kalisperas architectural studio

Constantinos Kalisperas’ approach, either in architecture or in design, involves the fundamental principle of coincidentia oppositorum, i.e. seeking unity through the coincidence of opposites: above with below, inside with outside, negative with positive, infinite with finite, a principle that has defined both western and eastern way of thinking since antiquity.

THE COLLECTION by Bureau A

Friday, September 20th, 2013

Article source: Bureau A

“Everything remembered, everything thought, all awareness becomes base, frame, pedestal, lock and key of his ownership. Period, region, craft, previous owners – all, for the true collector, merge in each one of his possessions into a magical encyclopaedia whose quintessence is the fate of his object.”

Article source: JDS Architects

Kalvebod Brygge is situated opposite the popular Copenhagen summer hang out, Islands Brygge. Kalvebod Brygge has the potential to be Islands Brygge’s more urban counterpart but has, until now, been synonymous with a desolated office address devoid of life and public activities.

Neo – Fa by Pascal Arquitectos

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

Article source: Pascal Arquitectos

Neo, a word derivated from the old Greek meaning new. This prefix commonly used in Spanish take us immediately to avant-garde movements; those names that are preceded by this word always look forward, to renew, to bring ways never seen before or break out with previous forms of art. That is exactly what we pretended to do with this proposal. This work consists of not only presenting just an architectural project or concept, we go beyond by generating a new architectural system which allows typification, standardization, prefabrication, multifunctionality and polyvalency.

329 prepared dc-motors, cotton balls, toluene tank, 2013 in Dottikon, Switzerland by Zimoun

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

Article source: Studio Zimoun

Using simple and functional components, Zimoun builds architecturally-minded platforms of sound. Exploring mechanical rhythm and flow in prepared systems, his installations incorporate commonplace industrial objects. In an obsessive display of simple and functional materials, these works articulate a tension between the orderly patterns of Modernism and the chaotic forces of life. Carrying an emotional depth, the acoustic hum of natural phenomena in Zimoun’s minimalist constructions effortlessly reverberates.
