Emporia in Kansas by Wingårdh Arkitektkontor AB

Saturday, July 6th, 2013

Article source: Wingårdh Arkitektkontor AB

Emporia is first and foremost an urban planning project in which offices, housing, and retail come together in a mixed-use development along Boulevarden and Stationsgatan in Hyllie, on the south side of Malmö. The main idea of our winning competition entry was to hide inward-looking retail behind a wreath of residential and commercial buildings. The whole shopping complex would thereby eventually become integrated into the fabric of the city.

Three Sustainable Apartment Blocks in Paris, France by Atelier Tarabusi

Thursday, June 6th, 2013

Article source: Atelier Tarabusi

The project site is in Clichy-sous-Bois (a Parisian suburban area) inside the urban distribution plan of Dhuys and part of the overall urban renovation masterplan of Clichy-Montfermeil. The site presents great contrasts, tall council blocks built in the 60s on one side and the Bondy’s forest on the other. The project site being precisely on the limit between these two, the forest and the council blocks, draws the project to resolve the transition enhancing these components and strengthening their relationship in a positive way.

MADU in Mexico City, Mexico by FREE – Fernando Romero EnterprisE

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013

Article source: FREE

MADU is a small museum for a collection of Art, Design and Urbanism. Like it’s content the building becomes an object by itself. Based on a deformed sphere, the shape is autonomous and will co-exist harmoniously with it’s surroundings. The content of the exhibition are in it’s majority small objects and require small rooms in specific groups. In order to have an integrated solution for program structure and circulation, a single wavy slab is disposed in an helicoidal way so it becomes stable without the need for columns or beams and allowing a diversity in circulation that makes a free fluid experience to it’s visitors.
