Schlump ONE in Hamburg, Germany by J. MAYER H. Architects

Thursday, October 25th, 2012

Article source: J. MAYER H. Architects

The project “Schlump ONE” is located directly at the underground station Schlump in Eimsbüttel district in Hamburg. The original administration building from the 1950s and 90s was gutted, renovated and expanded, and has now been converted into an office building with four possible rental units per floor. The existing data processing center in the courtyard has been transformed into a private university and expanded to include a new building. The building’s facade has been completely renovated and redesigned to form a single unit that freely interprets the original building’s 1950s linear design. The organic formal language of the facade is continued in the design of interiors. The project is embedded in a sophisticated, open space planning design with oversized tree sculptures.

E.J. Ourso College of Business at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge by ikon.5 architects

Thursday, October 25th, 2012

Article source: ikon.5 architects

The E.J. Ourso College of Business at Louisiana State University is a glass and steel ‘academical village’ for business education. The courtyard site plan and building forms are contextual— recalling the sloped roof pavilions and arcaded courtyards of the adjacent historic campus. To illustrate a forward looking aesthetic that embodies the mission of the school, which is to generate business innovation in Louisiana and the Gulf region, these traditional architectural forms are constructed of contemporary materials and details. The pavilions are clad in ceramic coated translucent mirror glass and the rotunda is clad in a bronze solar screen resulting in a composition of forms that are ephemeral apparitions of the original campus. This composition reflects the strong heritage of the campus while looking to the promises of the future.

Leyteire Square in Bordeaux, France by Debarre Duplantiers Associés

Sunday, October 14th, 2012

Article source: Debarre Duplantiers Associés

The historical centre of Bordeaux University sets a new beginning : the Opération Campus begins with urban design at its heart. These spaces are currently closed, intended solely for receiving deliveries, however the project intends to turn them into a lively heart of the University, where intermingling can take place. The initial meaning of “campus” can be retrieved through an intense central green space.
